Staff were great. The building itself was tired. Air conditioner barely worked. Nice maintenance people tried to fix our A/C unit three times before they agreed to move us to a different room. Stayed for a week with my family, we booked two rooms. They have a newer wing but the current CEO decided to shut it down. Terrible move considering he pushed (scared) a lot of people away by putting them in the older wing. Family and I would always stay here at least for a week every year. Not sure we would be going back with is sad considering this was my hotel of choice back in the day. Again staff were great but management doesn't seem to care about returning guests.

Checked in to escape a whole day of city blackout... have I known that their wifi and cable tv is also blackout, I wouldn’t have checked in! Room is clean and spacious. Coz there’s nothing to do in the room (no wifi no cable tv) we decided to go to the swimming pool... to our dismay, the pool is packed with day entries and nowhere to sit for in-house guests! So we went back to the room instead. Breakfast is nowhere near Jollibee breakfast meal, it’s the worst hotel breakfast I have ever seen! I do not wish to recommend this hotel to my friends and family.. Overpriced with very bad service to top it off!

Our room was located at the 8th floor of the new building of the hotel overlooking the Zamboanga City International Airport. It is quite nice, the room is big and it can accomodate 4 people. All amenities is fresh and new, we have a hot and cold shower with a bathtub. Room is super clean and the buffet breakfast that goes with the room is superb and sumptuous.

This time I stayed in the superior room. The room was clean, bathroom was great and the beds and pillow was a bit on the hard side but ok. Sadly WIFI still doesn't work in the rooms. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They don't have their own booking site, so my mother-in-law (I am married to a Filipina) was told that I should via agent site which I did. I used hotels.com A few days before check-in, I got an e-mail from them saying that they didn't agree on the rate between them and the agent, and they wanted me to pay extra or they would not honor the booking. They claimed that it was an error and suggest that I cancel my booking with hotels.com and then they would give me a "good deal" . I refuse to pay anything extra or cancel my booking + mention to them in my reply, that they was the one that wanted me to use a agent for the booking and that since that I was married to local Filipina, that we would take the case to proper authorities. I never heard anything more from them after that and at check-in nothing more was said. This is EXTREMELY bad behavior and "smells" like trying to scam a tourist....

My family and I spent a night here to escape a whole day black out and no water service in our barangay. The place has always been clean and the staff are accommodating. We were given the rooms which ensured a quiet stay to rest and just be comfortable.

Visited this hotel on Sep 2019 and based on my impression this hotel is about to close down already. Internet signal is very bad, you still have to go down to lobby to connect to internet (if lucky). No IT support after 5pm so sorry for customers who cant connect to internet after this time. I ask to refresh my non working key card but i was asked to be assisted by bellman for the bellman to open my door bec theyre computer is not working to refresh my card. Not a very good service.

This hotel is very close to where I have stayed all over the world. Our room had everything we expected for the level of comfort we want. We had a view of the pool which was nice, and overlooking the airport and the mountains. Aside from our room the entire place was well-kept and clean. Toilet facilities are very good and up to our standards. It's location sets it apart - away from the city traffic and close to the airport. Some downside though, it still uses hard water which doesn't lather as much, and with the recent renovations the 2 lobbies are rather confising. But overall, this is my choice hotel in Zamboanga.

The hotel is very near the airport and not too far from the city center so location is okay. The rooms are clean and of good size. The swimming pool and gym are okay although the open air shower for the pool can be improved as it has weak flow of water. The hotel staff are friendly, courteous and always smiling. The buffet breakfast has good variety of local Filipino and some intercontinental dishes. The room lacks personal amenities such as slippers, combs and complimentary water which has to be requested from the front desk. The restaurant ala carte orders are quite expensive and not as good as food with lesser price like the grill restaurant beside the hotel. otherwise it is a good hotel with a convenient location and good facilities. The only other peeve I have with the hotel is the policy of not letting guest eat fruits in the room which I understand should apply to potentially offensive smelling fruits like the durian and marang but to aplply the same policy to odorless fruits like lanzones or rambutan or mangosteen is not really justified or rational.

I am in Zamboanga for business and the customer booked this hotel. My room is located in the main wing towards the main street. I cant believe that in 2019 there are still hotels and specially for this rate, which dont offer free wifi in the rooms. Sure wifi is available in the lobby but as a busines traveler who wants to sit in the lobby to write emails? Even the wifi in the lobby is sporadic and not good at all. The room was terrible as one could hear loud music from the street till late at night. Last night loud music actually woke me up at 4AM and it did not stop till 5AM. This is not at all relaxing if one has to get up early in the AM again to go to work. Breakfast food is okay but mostly already cold when I went for breakfast at 6:30AM, breakfast starts at 6AM! Even dinner service was only marginal and for the price one pays for food actually unacceptable. Unfortunately it seams there are not too many other options avaiable and i cant wait to get back into civilication.

It was my 1st time in Zamboanga City and I was shocked that it was so near to the airport that will not make you worry about the traffic you may encounter. The place is so nice it offer a great amenities such as the pool,gym and sauna. The good thing is that its already included on what you pay for. Their function hall is nice and can accommodate the number of people you reserve. They also have buffet breakfast but take note on the time you'll take your breakfast because when you're early you have the opportunity to try everything.
