“Never expect it to be this good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I already been to Gardenia Hotel twice and the service is great. I just call, reserve a date over the phone and voila! no problem when I get there. They are very lenient and concern with their guest that they even allow check in as early as 5AM with no extra charge! The room is only 950 per night. Very spacious. The view is good, employees are courteous. This is not a 5 star hotel but it's the service and friendliness of the staff that would really make you feel special.

I would always go back to this hotel every time i visit Tabaco. Quiet and peaceful. See you again on May!

You'll not be disappointed!!! Room is spacious, bed is comfortable, view is excellent!

My father needs a cool and quiet sorrounding. This was the main reason for our stay in this hotel.

Hotel grounds are well maintained. You'll also love to seat at the roof top while enjoying the great view of Mt. Mayon, this hotel is also the choice of some local celebrity during there visits on mayo0n!
Staff are friendly and helpful. Security is tight. Keycard is also used for the elevator.

Gardenia is only a few walks away from a mall and restaurants. and supermarkets.

Overall: We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay in this hotel!

My wife and son and I stayed at the Gardenia Hotel for three nights. Having never stayed in a hotel outside the U.S., except in Canada, I wasn't sure what to expect. Tabaco City is a working town, not a tourist attraction, and as we made our way along the streets to the Gardenia, I began to wonder what we'd find when we checked in.

But the Gardenia was very nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was very accommodating. When we couldn't get the air conditioning to work in the first room we checked into, the staff immediately moved us to another. We didn't order anything other than drinks from the hotel restaurant, so I can't say much about the menu, but the service was very good. The food market, the LCC department store, and several eateries are not too far from the Gardenia.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay.

  • Liked — The service
  • Disliked — The location--it was off the main street, and you had to make your way through thick traffic at times to get there
