“Home away home!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

This 3 star hotel is very condusive to all walks of life. Simply rising along the metro of Mandaluyong City where you can easily access to malls, MRT or rail transit, public buses and Jeepney and nearest restaurants. The room service is very prompt in response when asking for help especially for cleaning up the room whilst you're out of the hotel. The staff were well trusted, I've been staying this hotel for a month due business travel and left my room each day with my monies somewhere, personal belongings and as soon as I get back it still there.

Room Tip: A junior suite room is fine to accommodate if you're traveling solo. If staying with friends and...

I have always stayed in Makati area which is financial hub and very close to all pubs, malls and night life. So, when I decided to stay in this hotel I was a bit reluctant but it was worth taking the risk.

It is walking distance to Starmall, SM Megamall and Shangrila Mall. Walkable distance to MRT and bus stand and worldwide corporate center. Perfect location for both business and leisure travel.

Room are quite spacious with equipped kitchenette but microwave is missing. Sleep quality is really good. Dunno know why instead of LCD they still host CRT in rooms. Location from window was really good as I was on 18th floor.

Hotel host an in house spa besides a functional swimming pool. They offer in room massage as well.

Restaurant offers variety of dishes at reasonable cost. Breakfast was a big turn down as there were not much options.

Overall I do not find nay negative of not staying in this hotel at the rate offered

Room Tip: Opt for higher floor

This is what I say...Fake Hotel or trying hard to be a hotel. You will really feel the un-experienced management style from this property. Breakfast food/options is totally CRAP! Need to change the entire management team specially your chef if you have one! But I don't think that this hotel can afford a chef...

TOTALLY NOT RECOMMENDED!

Bath items so limited 1 soap only!and NO free toilet paper/soap/shampoo on last day, extra pillows need to pay,stingy. NO need for extra blankets the room was NOT cold(26degree all thru our stay on ECONOMIZED mode) its pre-set AUTO. same just stay home. I kept fanning myself. Shuttle? one way bring u there and you're on your own coming back it's a one way shuttle only!

Towels soooo gray!Its a Miracle i survived 4 Nights (worst deal ever at Ensogo)REGRETS!!!!Lobby so impressive rooms so tiny!(Junior Suite).what a waste of cash & time.

My name is Ed San Luis and I just checked out of Lancaster today March 29 2013 while waiting for clearance at the lobby. The front desk made me wait for 10 min without telling me that I'm not clear to go. After I've asked why am I not clear I was informed that it is because of a stain in their pillow sheets which they can't take off by laundry. I had to wait another 20 min. to see if the stains can be taken off. ( it was a few blood stain after shaving when i went to sleep) I was charge for 1,230 pesos or $28 for the un-removable stain. I was asked to pay the whole two sets of pillow sheets. In my experience I've been through a lot of hotel and this is the first time a cheap skate hotel will charge a guest for pillow sheet stain.Their policy sucks not to mention their inconsiderate way they treated me in making me wait.

I had the pleasures of staying at Lancaster Hotel in Manila 2 years ago and because of that I booked to stay at Lancaster in March 2013. That decision turned out to be a big mistake. Two years ago this was a wonderful, clean and well-maintained hotel but now the standard has dropped, the room we stayed in was not how I remember the rooms 2 years ago. The walls had chipped marks on it, the bathroom was horrifying, with mold everywhere, the room had a smell to it, the linen was old and worn and the in room safe had sticky tape keeping the back of it together. It was funny, the cleaner told us not to use it as the batteries could fall out while locked and we didn’t want to risk have our things locked in there. The breakfast was not as good as it was 2 years ago, back then breakfast was served on the top floor with a wide range of foods, now its served in the lobby with limited food options and its hard to get seating because the space is so small. Looking around the lobby I could see wallpaper pealing from the walls, dead cockroach’s on the floor, not a good look right. We asked to look at another room while there and it looked the same and the price was at over 6000 peso per night, rip off! Two days later we decided to check out, we have had enough of this. When asked why we were checking out early we told them why and were offered a free upgrade to the studio room but we declined the offer. It’s a shame to see how this hotel has been neglected over 2 years and I will never stay there again and you shouldn’t stay there also.

Nice view at the top but too restricted. You can't get to some parts of the hotel without transferring to another set of elevators. The housekeeping is terrible... You can't even get a decent set of toiletries for additional occupants in the room. There were 3 of us in one room but the toiletries they gave were good for only 2. You'd have to pay an additional fee for extras. What the? The food, hmmm... I had to look for some decent carinderias outside the hotel so I wouldn't get indigestion. I hate cream dory or pangasius fish that they serve as fish fillet. It gets my gastric juices in a boiling frenzy. Don't they have any other breed of fish out there? Can't they just serve sardines instead. Try eating a lot of fish fillet of the cream dory type, just wait a few minutes and you're off racing to the bathroom! It's called 'pinyahon' back home. Meanwhile, the pangasius fish fillet has a texture that of cotton, even tastes just like cotton sometimes. They don't serve that many veggie dishes so if you're a vegan don't make a mistake of staying there. The food servers don't have a pathway of their own so they end up bumping into hotel guests most of the time. The restaurant is too cramped, you're better off eating out at the nearest mall or restaurant outside. Here's something quite unnerving: while waiting for the elevator, there's a monitor screen showing advertisements... Then just before you hop in, you'll see an advertisement of a communications company showing 3 actors trapped in an elevator which seems to suddenly fall from its tracks... Now, wouldn't you feel a bit queasy watching that before you hop inside the elevator? Think about it. We also experienced having our room flooded with water from the plumbing which suddenly burst due to tremendous water pressure which broke the water heater's PVC pipe. The maintenance personnel took about 15 minutes before they could fix the problem. Had I slept earlier we would have been electrocuted to death by the water which shorted out the water heater circuits. We were literally flood victims for one night. We waited in the lobby for half an hour before the hotel management was able to facilitate our transfer to another room in the middle of the night. Nevertheless, most of the other employees are very courteous and well-mannered. The employees also were quick however to provide an extra bed for no extra cost (since it's already paid for).

Room Tip: Choose a room that's not too high up in the clouds, er upstairs. That way, the water pipes would...
