“Noisy Dump”
Reviewed January 6, 2007

Noise Noise Noise- Noise from the street, noise from the stairwell, a cheap crimmy 3rd world hotel experience.

I was forced to stay here 2 nites recently when the PBA was in town and the Leyte Park and Alejandro were fully booked (there is a reason they fill up first).

The rooms are old and drab and the furniture is worn. The linen smells like mold. Run down. The 1st floor resturaunt is average. The service is slightly above average but thats it. The only advantage is the location in downtown Tacloban and even that is a DISADVANTAGE due to the grating 3rd world noise which echoes through the hotel at most hours.

I paid about $30 a nite for a triple room and felt a little overcharged. Stay elsewhere.

Reviewed March 24, 2006

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights upon recommendation of a local: The room was fairly tidy, the plumbing was OK. There was a TV and an aircondition (of which I'm not sure whether it was working or not).

There's an adjacent restaurant that serves good breakfast for P100 (about $2).

Cons: The bedsheets and towels were greyish and stained. So much so that I didn't dare creep underneath the bedsheets.

This is a convenient place to stay at if you're not going to be fussy about the details. Price: P700/night (about $14).
