Stayed at the Lantaka Hotel last Jun 24-26 on a holiday trip with my wife. The location of this hotel is central, as it is near everything there is to see in Zamboanga City. Its also in front of the sea, which provided relaxing ocean views anytime of the day. We walked to Fort Pilar and Paseo del Mar easily.
The hotel is quite old. It shows in the look and upkeep. It even has that old hotel smell (like Fort Ilocandia in Ilocos Norte). The lobby and hallways have confusing interior decors, and are dimly lit.
Our room was decent, had a nice view of the sea, and was biiiiig (old hotel style big). It had a decent bed, airconditioning, clean and decent toilet, decent furniture, and a tv.
Service was good and hospitable - just about what to be expected of a hotel of this caliber. The staff helped us with directions to different places of interest. One thing to credit is how they warmly accommodated my request to keep some food in their kitchen after we checked out while we waited for our evening flight.
The restaurant serves good food. I remember ordering crabs with their special Lantaka sauce (similar to Alavar sauce). Superb!
All in all, this hotel is a decent place to stay. Its not spectacular but if one has simple expectations, Lantaka will deliver.
