I have stayed previously in this hotel when it was the La Trinidad some years ago and was looking forward to seeing how the complete and substantial rennovation had gone. By all accounts it was a great job and very well done. The hotel is not large but the lobby is attractive and welcoming. Free shuttles to and from the airport, now served by a much larger number of both airlines and flights from Manila. The rooms are certainly of international standard. The hotel would boast a 4 star rating, maybe close but more like a 3 star plus. Location is everything, near to the new entertainment and shopping complex at the port area ( see my other review!), and local shops and the market. Transport is easy in Legaspi, and of course nothing could be created that could match the Mount Mayon Volcano that dominates the City. A nice buffet breatfast, with some international flavour but mostly local ( by the way of noteworthy quality and taste!) as is the lunch and dinner menu. The hotel restaurant is small, but the food and variety is particularly noteworthy. As is the service and both the friendliness and capability of the staff. Its a great and cheap soujourn from the heat and bussle of Manila for a long weekend or mid-week break.
