Hotel H2O is the first hotel in the Philippines with the unique concept of aquatic themed rooms...an interesting experience how it feels living in a posh aquarium lined with luxury and style.
The hotel is conveniently located in the country's capital, Manila City. The hotel is literally beside the Manila sea port, so it should be no problem if you're coming from a holiday yacht cruise or inter island ferry boats. Drive from the airport should be 45 mins tops. About 15-20 mins taxi ride from the provincial bus stations in Lawton and Pasay. 10 mins walk or 5 mins by taxi ride to the nearest city train station (LRT UN Avenue station). Taxi cabs also ply the area.
Hotel H20 is in the premises of the Manila Ocean Park, within the complex of Rizal Park (Luneta Park) South East Asia's largest national urban park. As such, there are plenty of tourist attracts that abound you. Going around the ocean park itself for the marine wildlife shows and activities can sure get the little kids and adults going. The attractions don't stop there, step outside and you're in for more sites such as the monument of Jose Rizal, Light and Sound complex, relief map boardwalk, the Intramuros (historic walled city of Manila) and for a few minutes drive you're at the country's biggest shopping mall - the SM Mall of Asia.
The rooms are spacious and stylish with very clean bath rooms, rain head showers and jacuzzi bath tubs for selected rooms, basic bath amenities, mini bar and digital cable tv. Rooms also have WiFi access. However getting the password can be quite inconvenient as each device will be assigned with its own user name and password for the internet access good for 24 hours. The fitness center has basic work out facilities as well.
Housekeeping staff are polite and efficient. Room service may take a while even for simple orders like sandwiches so its better to order in advance or allow for preparation and delivery time. The concierge/bellmen staff are polite. Front desk people can be quite busy and sometimes forget to ask if you need luggage assistance, nevertheless they are still accommodating and polite.
Food choices are plenty at the ocean park premises but to have more local feel and experience try the local restaurants in Roxas boulevard, Remedios circle or at the Mall of Asia.
