The Lake Hotel Tagaytay
Ranked #15 of 27 Hotels in Tagaytay
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The Lake Hotel has one big advantage - a fantastic view of the Taal and the volcano within it.
The Lake View rooms have small balconies which have the view but elsewhere in the hotel the rooms have little or no view (of anything.) The rooms are adequate - a little small but comfortable. The prices charged are inflated for what you get.
The noise from the corridors is loud - whether it be other guests coming and going or housekeeping staff talking or shouting to each other - it was really annoying.
Breakfast is a simple buffet which again is adequate.
The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is good - just a two minute walk gets you to a variety of restaurants, starbucks and a couple of bars which stay open until the early hours. The proximity of things is useful because there are no taxis in Tagaytay and trikes are hard to find late at night.
Hotel prices for motel standards.

Room Tip: Lake View rooms if you want to see the volcano from your balcony.

Very nice view, we didn't have to go somewhere else to have a good picture of the Taal Volcano 'cause it's just outside our window.
The service was nice, all the staffs were attentive and friendly. We asked for a late check-out and they immediately agreed.
We got the de luxe room, the space was just adequate for us. Just a few minus points on the towels, they are not so white and fluffy.
Overall, the experience was good.

View from the hotel is Taal Lake. Awesome location! Close to Canossa Retreat House where we had our 25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration and to Gerry's Grill where we had the reception. The down side is the jacuzzi in our suite was not working. For the price we paid for it, we didnt even get to use it.

Room Tip: There are only (2) suites facing the Taal Lake. I suggest you get one of those rooms as the view at...

We stayed here just for 1 night and would love to come back. Our room was in the ground floor and I felt that my kids are very safe.. Eventhough, the room was small (Standard), it was very cozy. Staff were all friendly. Our room didn't exactly have the view of the lake, the veranda is still a nice spot to stay... The beds, sheets and restroom are all clean. However, when we were about to check out, a group of visitors entered the room. Their key card also worked in our room, but apparently they stay just beside our room. I also read from one of their reviews that they've been having problems with their key cards. Good thing this happened in the morning and not when all of us were asleep.

Stayed here for 1 night and I would say the room is clean although the bathroom looks a bit old but clean too. What I liked most about the hotel is its location. It is close to a lot of restaurants and coffee shops. What I didn't like about our experience in the hotel was during breakfast. We came to the cafe at around 9am and it was full since it's small. My husband gave the breakfast coupon to the staff and the staff didn't escort us to any table nor did she tell us to wait for an available table. We had to ask for our table and in turn she asked us if there weren't any table outside. Then she saw a long table with 4 people, asked us if we were willing to share. We had to tell her that she has to ask those people first. When the people agreed to share the table, we got our food and we still had to ask for them to put utensils and water on our table. The taste of the food was just okay.
I wrote this experience on their comment sheet and their manager sent me a text message saying their f&b manager is investigating the issue. They offered a 50% room discount and free upgrade on my next booking at their hotel.

Stayed with my husband, parents and siblings over the weekend and enjoyed our stay here.

Room rates are inclusive of buffet breakfast and wifi. Even the lobby has fast internet.

The staff are friendly, and for some reason they upgraded our rooms. We were very grateful. The hotel has a nice view of Taal Lake and Volcano, and is also walking distance from points of interest in Tagaytay such as Leslie's, Starbucks and a massage salon (Ayutthaya I think).

It's an understated hotel, but we would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Taal Lake and Volcano :)

Only stayed here one night on a stop in Tagaytay but provided you have a car this is a convenient place to stop, sort of in the middle of the stretch of restaurants and hotels across town. There is quite a lot of construction around the hotel at the moment which takes away from the look of the hotel and makes the car park small so getting in an out was a bit of a nuisance.

There are great views from the garden of this place (when the mist isn’t hiding everything), the garden is a good size and there’s a semi-covered pool although it was too cold to swim in October.

The standard room we had was in the basement and is quite dark with no view. It had a queen bed and single bed which was a bit squishy given the size of the room. The bathroom was big with a decent shower.

Unfortunately the noise from other rooms travels through quite easily so we were disturbed by a group in another room that were quite loud. With that and the construction noise it wasn’t the best night’s sleep.

Room Tip: Level 1 or 2 to get a view. The basement rooms are dark.
