We stayed here last christmas and booked 2 - 3 bedrooms. Due to pandemic, many rules have been change, no toiletries provided, no tv at master bedroom, you have to pay if you want your room to be cleaned, so we were a bit dissappointed. My brother who was assigned to another room was not happy on room provided to his family, according to him bathroom was a dirty, it seems it has not clean properly before they check in and in situations right now everything should be cleaned thoroughly and disinfect for safety reasons. I hope this will be improve next time. Nevertheless all the staffs are friendly and accomodating. Special thanks to Ms Christine for always assisting us in our booking.
Second time to stay in this hotel on Jan 2020. Last visit was on Sep 2019. The suite was spacious and cozy. The bed was big and comfortable. The toilet was clean, had bidet, decent shower pressure and some toiletries. The mini bar had drinks and snacks (paid). Free tea/coffee/water. Great room overall. The staff especially the house-keeping crew were all excellent and amazing. Check-in was smooth and without hassle. Check-out on 19 Jan at 0900 hrs took a while disappointingly but its not a deal breaker. Hopefully its a one-off. The Air Conditioning was much better than last time. It was quieter and gets cooler real quick.The restaurant food was also waaay better than before. I've enjoyed the meal. Hopefully it maintains. Would I stay there again ? Definitely. Thanks much.
The price is affordable considering the very good location in Cubao which is very accessible. However, the hotel needs an upgrade of its facilities. The bed and sofa needs to be changed. The T&B should also be upgraded and the water from bidet doesn't smell good. They have parking space at the basement, however, I was not able to park there as I parked my car in front of the hotel. The breakfast could have been good if not for the very poor service. There were only 3 crews serving and 2 of them are OJT. I didn't experience this in other hotels considering that it is weekend.
Had a good night rest after watching a concert at New Frontier Theater. Fernandina 88 Hotel is clean, safe, inexpensive and just across the malls with direct access to the MRT. Will book here again next month.
The hotel- Pros: The hotel is located near malls, business centers, 7-11, great restaurants etc. The neighborhood is safe and not noisy. Great for a good night sleep. The suite was spacious and cozy. The bed was big and comfortable. The toilet was clean, had bidet, decent shower pressure and some toiletries. The mini bar had drinks and snacks (paid). Free tea/coffee/water. Great room overall. Cons: Air Condition is dead old (Takes time to cool up the room. Hope its gets changed.) There's no balcony and the street down the hotel can get really busy. You might sometimes have to wait 30 mins for your grab to reach you. No deal breaker really. The Hotel restaurant: It is situated on the top most floor with glass wall/window overlooking the town. Nice view while eating. But that's just that. The food here was terrible. Terrible maybe an understatement too lol its the worst I've ever eaten. I wasn't expecting great posh food yet it was horrible in all standards. For this quality hotel, we expect good food. I've had Chicken teriyaki once and the chicken was solid hard..I thought it was either burnt or left over and reheated. I thought it could be a one-off. So no biggie. Next day we've ordered Spaghetti, Beef steak etc, and guess what, all of it was dead hard too. WTH lol. My jaws were tired struggling to chew the spaghetti. It tasted good but it was like trying to chew a rubber band. The knife and fork got defeated by the beef steak. It was uncuttable lol It like a whole eraser placed on a plate. Disastrous food. Even street food was better lol. Hope they do something in that kitchen. The staff- They were all excellent and amazing. The front desk, the housekeeper, especially the waiters at the restaurant, the technician were all amazing and helpful people. Top service by all the staff. keep it up. Would I go back ? Definitely. Besides the garbage restaurant food, everything else was great. Just eat at the malls or restaurant outside.…
