“Waste of money”
Reviewed 6 March 2011

Stayed here one nite before going to the girlfriends town, paid1,100 for a standard superior room, hotel has a beautiful staircase leading up to the rooms, but that's where it ends. The halls are dark and dirty and the room was shabby and outdated, cheap foam mattresses that kept sliding of the bed, the bathroom was terrible ,dirty gray towels that were paper thin, a toilet that did'nt work, there was a bucket and ladle to scoop water in the toilet after you finished your business, I'm used to doing this in the province but not in a hotel and no cold water in the bathroom, never stay here again. I found a new hotel called the IALodge at the end of the bus terminal acrsos from the Don Felipe rooms starting at 700 peso with free wi-fi

Reviewed 6 April 2010

enjoyed my stay there, although I don't recommend saturday nights, the church bell starts at about 5.00am sunday morning, could swear it was in my room. other than that the hotel was clean and tidy, aircon in the room was good. some staff not as warm as others, but we all have bad days. the owner is quite a nice fellow, had drinks with him and friends, interesting conversation about ormoc and its history, if ur interested. all in all, a good stay, and the hotel easily withstood the earthquake that happened while we stayed there(an unexpected holiday extra,lol).the rest of ormoc is within walking distance(or tricycle), nice place to stay if u want to catch the supercat to cebu also
