I really liked the idea of some relaxed fishes swimming by in the morning so I booked an aquarium room. The room itself was alright (though very small) but already the whole set up in the complex is kind of confusing. Had problems finding the lobby and the ways seemed quite long. But the worst thing was, since there is no street where taxis run right in front, I had to ask the hotel personal in front to call me a taxi. I specifically said "I need a regular, metered taxi" (since I already got ripped off at the airport). They agreed, a taxi came, I asked if it is metered, the driver said yes and the second I was inside he brought up some made up list with "government regulated prices". That happened twice and I changed the hotel to the Ramada Manila Center. Even a price class below, they never failed to get me a metered taxi. As management of H2O I would feel ashamed and train my employees better regarding customer service and what it means working in a high end hotel (130 $ per night in Philippines should get you at least normal taxis).

All these make Hotel H2O perhaps the most visually distinctive urban property in the country today. ... more less
