This hotel delivered one of the most horrible stays in my whole touring life. We were received from the front desk with:" If you loose the Roomcard, you pay 50P, if you make stain on bed linen you have to pay a penalty". This is the first time i heard ever from a Reception desk in my whole 20 years of touring life and staying in hotels.
In the couples Room, it was just space for a queen bed, no cabinets, no space to put our Baggage. Very small room, it looks in the pics at hotel site and tripadvisor big, but in reality that is'nt.
Bathroom is so small that it's difficult even for a slim person to turn around. No Shower curtains. So everytime we showered, whole bathroom went under water, even the toilet paper rolls got dripping wet, Towels and whole of our toileteries too. To add more adventure the water geyser is situated beside the Tap from the basin, and during showering there was a short circuit and fire caught up in the Bathroom.
One good point is the room boys are very nice and friendly, but thats only it.
Breakfast is outsourced to a street side kitchen situated 50m from hotel. Breakfast traditional phillipino, rice with egg and pork or corned beef. Always the same with one free drink, instant coffee or water, nothing more. BORING.....
May be this hotel suits backpacker but definitely not for couple.
We say "never again to this hotel", it doesn't deserve the name hotel, in Europe we say it doesn't even fulfill the motel standards.
