I booked a zpad mini. I was exhausted from the flight only to find out shower heater is not working. No choice, i had to deal with the cold shower. It was 10pm. I was upgraded to a single room which is bigger free of charge. I asked if the shower heater is working. And they said ok its perfectly working. In the morning the heater is still working. I informed the front desk and they said to wait for 10mins so it will heat. I have no time to wait so again i had to use the cold water. I took a bath for 15mins and still not working. I let the water run until the housekeeping checkd the unit. Its past 30mins already and still its not working. And all they could say was sorry. The front desk was irritating to talk to. I made several calls to follow up regardin the matter all she said was 'we will have it checked'. Duh. Im checking out thar morning so its useless. It could have been a nice stay i not for the heater and the front desk.

Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from the hippest hotel in Tacloban City!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at Z Pad Residences. We are always delighted to read the positive experiences of our guests. In relation to your concerns regarding the malfunctioning of hot shower and the inefficient service of our Front Desk Officer, I was able to evaluate the lapses and made some corrective actions, for us to correct and not to repeat the same problem/concern to our valued and future guests. To discuss it further, the hot shower was able to fix by our maintenance team and found out that the hot water machine itself needs replacement;which we already did and lastly, we made sure that we will be giving more training in customer service for us to render quality service to all our guests. These kind of comments are very important to us. Your feedback will be shared to the rest of the team and rest assured that all key points of comments and suggestions will be given a high regards.

We truly value your comments as these will help us improve on our services more.
On behalf of the management, we are looking forward in welcoming you again!

Thank you, once again for your kind words.

Best regards,

Jerick M. Florano

Property and furniture in good shape.
It is secure.
It seems to be converted from a small apartment complex.
A little out of the center of Tacloban but transport is available and cheap.
Jolliebee just a 1 minute walk away, with some small stores and food places.
Friendly Staff.
No real w3indoes in the rooms, but this is not atypical of budget rooms in Asia.

Room Tip: Queen size room OK. Choose the larger rooms if you havefamily.

I booked in this hotel coz all the hotels downtown were fully booked during that time. It is quite far from establishments like restaurants, groceries, coffee shops etc but it is near a hospital and jollibee so thats were i ate all the time given no choice. I didn't appreciate how i had to pay extra 500 for early check in even if i booked in advance. Well if i had to pay extra at least they could have helped me with my bags which they did not offer plus i didnt know where my room was which they didn't offer to show. I later figured there were 3 rooms sharing the living area and sort off a kitchen.. Supposedly a kitchen.. I say so coz it has no refrigerator or even kitchen utensils. I say its a waste of space coz nonevof us used it anyways. I still prefered if they used the space to make the rooms bigger. The rooms even got smaller coz you had to go through a small hallway after entering the common living area entering your room. Anyways, if the hotels dowtown are not booked i would still prefer to stay there than in zpad

Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from the hippest hotel in Tacloban City!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at Z Pad Residences. We are always delighted to read the positive experiences of our guests. In relation to your concerns, I would like to discuss it further, regarding the Php. 500.00 for the early check-in, we do have fees for this even you booked in advance since the standard check-in time is by 2PM, also, with the luggage assistance we apologize for this matter, nonetheless, we are currently conducting more training for us to render quality service and exceed the expectation of all of our guests. And with regards to the 3 bedrooms sharing in one room, basically, this is the concept of Z Pad Residences which is a "pad-type", however all of our guests has the option whether they want to get the whole Suite or one bedroom only with the common living area and kitchenette; this matter has been stated in most of our websites for reference and information. Your feedback will be shared to the rest of the team and rest assured that all key points of comments and suggestions will be given a high regards.

We truly value your comments as these will help us improve on our services more.
On behalf of the management, we are looking forward in welcoming you again!

I stayed at Z-pad whilst working in Tacloban. I haven't stayed at other places in Tacloban so I can't compare with them, but the location away from the city might be a problem for some travellers.

Pros: Very comfortable bed, good wifi signal, clean, good air-con, on-site secure parking, quiet area.
Cons: Single rooms are tiny with barely space to use the desk provided, the location is not in the ciy centre so without your own transport you have to use tricylcles or jeepneys (of which there are plenty), no food available on site despite a menu in the room.

Zpad Residences was not we expected it to be. Just in their soft opening, we ended up wanting to check out minutes after checking in. There was no mobile signal in our room, no wifi signal, we couldn't order food because they don't have any and the list just goes on and on. The only thing that kept us from checking out was their hotel manager who was really apologetic and faced us. We moved to a better room now with mobile and wifi signals. The food situation though we had to stick out. So if you are looking for your usual hotel, this is not it.

Room Tip: Make sure your rooms have mobile phone signals.

Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from the hippest hotel in Tacloban City!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at Z Pad Residences. We are always delighted to read the positive experiences of our guests. However, upon checking your reviews of the property, there are some concerns that are merely beyond our control, especially with regards to the signal of any mobile company. To discuss further, in relation to your concern regarding our food, we offer choices of plated breakfasts and snacks and the lists is placed inside the room which I personally mentioned. Also specifically, during your stay we are encountering a system maintenance with our service provider and for that we apologized but then again, it is beyond our control. Your feedback will be shared to the rest of the team and rest assured that all key points of comments and suggestions will be given a high regards.

We truly value your comments as these will help us improve on our services more.
On behalf of the management, we are looking forward in welcoming you again!
