The hallway was dark, no windows in the room, stained linens, torn towels, fuzzy tv reception and no internet connection. Its just near restaurants and other establishments. The rates are really cheap but the service is bad. You walk by the lobby and the staff are sleeping on the benches and stare at you. I told receptionist to prepare my...

Reasonably priced for such type of accommodation. Everything is within walking distance like food, transportation and entertainment. Rooms have hot and cold shower. Also has wi-fi, telephone and intercom connection. This is my choice hotel in Tacloban City.

“the problem up there is - in case of so many helping organisations it is nearly impossible to get a nice room, all are occupied by this organisations, some are blocked even nobody is in but they are not allowed to rent it. Well not much to say than check out in advance maybe the Alejandro Hotel is an option.... but havn´t seen the rooms.”

“The best rooms are at the 5th to 4th floor. There is a bar at the penthouse so rooms near to the top have the tendency to be noisy. Stay away near the top floors but if you are the bar type person, it's easy access to your room when drunk :)”
