    The staff were all friendly and accommodating. The rooms are cleaned daily and they practice all minimum requirement for COVID. I cannot complain .... the stay was great. Since there is a kitchenette I recommend a microwave &/0r induction cooker. Perhaps a range hood or better exhaust so minimal cooking may be done without worrying about the smoke alarm :-(

    Nice hotel BUT...”

    I always choose Oriental Zen Suites whenever I need to chill or relax. The hotel staff members are nice. However, they charge costly for early check in. Reception area is hot too. I guess, they should put ACU in that area. Also, the gate/entrance closes early at night. If they will work on those, everything will be great for Oriental Zen.

    Great Hotel, So So Location”

    Great hotel although the location is less than desired. Then again, the price was VERY good and we were only there a few hours. Pros: 1. Hotel Staff (guard, receptionist) very helpful and pleasant 2. Very clean rooms and hallways, 3. A few blocks from SM Mall (suggest public transportation because the location is not great), 4. WIFI very strong (I was on the top (5th Floor)). 5. Airport Shuttle available for 1,300 Php (which was not bad considering the distance). 6. Value for the money (about $30 or 1,500 Php per night) Cons: 1. Location (although a few blocks from SM Mall (?)
