“Shoppers hotel”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Pluses : It's relatively new, and located in a bustling shopping area. If you like to haggle then Tutuban/Divisoria is the place to go. After a day of shopping, Orion is just a few steps away.
The rooms are clean and there is cable and free wifi.
The staff are eager to please and honest.
There is free parking.

Minuses: Maybe because it is new, a lot of people within the vicinitu couldn't point us to the hotel. The entrance is hard to locate.
Resturants are few and the hotel has no room service.
The parking space allotted for guests are few.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade, you might just get one.

If you frequent the Tutuban/Divisoria area (the Philippines' shopping mecca) especially during Christmas season, you can now take a breather by checking in at Orion Hotel located at the third floor of Prime Block Building.

Although Orion is not located in the CBD or in a posh area, the hotel surpasses my expectations. The rooms are well-appointed and I can see that they really paid attention down to the tiniest details. Their rates are very reasonable too.

Amenities include: mini bar, complimentary breakfast and bottled water, coffee and tea making facility, flat screen TV with cable channels, safe, mini ref, hot and cold shower with rain shower head.

Great service! Staffs are accommodating. They all grant our request.
The room is spacious enough. You will feel being loved and feel important as you enter the room due to its ambiance. We really love the ambiance!!

Location is good enough especially if you're tired from shopping. It's really convenient here. My mom and my brother really had a great time staying in this hotel.

First, we were checked-in immediately by the staff. Then we took some nap since we're tired.. At night, we decided to have dinner. At first, we are worried as to where to eat coz it's already late at night.. Surprisingly, as we continue walking on the busy night market of Tutuban, there are some food stalls that sells affordable foods. Chicken and pork barbeque, fish, vegetables and others.We left our bags and luggages first inside the room before going to the night market and felt secured with it. And since we booked in this hotel during Christmas season, we did shop some stuff and christmas gifts for our friends and relatives. Lots of options and we dont know what to buy! The crowd is really heavy! It was really tiring!. But we never mind it because we know that the hotel is just a walk away for us to stay. Grateful that there's already Orion Hotel that will ease your tiredness. Very relaxing..

Our most liked in this hotel is the service, the relaxing ambiance, their strong wifi in the room and its convenience to all of your needs since it's within the mall.

What we least liked was the window. Cannot be opened. And also the entrance of the hotel. It's not attractive. Accordingly, it's still under renovation.

But overall, really must a try esp during holiday seasons! Very convenient and relaxing!
