The good things about the Holiday Inn is the warm reception service and also the small add ons like cookie & cold drink at check in lobby.. Free 2way bookable van transfers to and from Palawan mega mall or Jonker steet which meant you not having to spend on rip off taxi rides!!
My non smoking room reeked of smoke smells upon checkin and this was promptly changed without any fuss by the check in staff.
I was upgraded to top floor (club floor) room .. Which was huge with tall windows overlooking the city. Unfortunately there was varnishing of wooden panelling along the corridors of the top floor and NO WINDOWS which could be opened to ventilate the corridors. Soon the strong varnish smells wafted into the rooms which I tried to steep with my bathmat towel.
Windows panes were also of inadequate thickness and noise frm highway and nearby disco cud be heard.. as on last nite of stay (Friday) there was loud pounding music frm nearby disco throughout the nite. Luckily baby was alresdy asleep.
Breakfast had a good spread and you could order specialty coffee ie latte cappuccino at no added costs. Nice array for freshly baked pastries and breads!!
My relatives tried the hotel oil massage and thoroughly satisfied.
Infinity Pool was lovely and peaceful however rather cold in the mornings as shadow overcast from hotel building on pool left it unheated until later in afternoon. Also a separate baby pool for lil ones to play in.
As a HI card member I was given free wifi which was fantastic for keeping tots occupied during stay and late checkout till 2pm wih no fuss!
Over all I will definitely stay again.
