        very nice hotel, but,”

        recently stayed at this hotel while visiting my wifes family in Gen San, the hotel was very nice and very clean, good value for money and the reception staff where great and very helpful, just a pity we cannot say the same about the restaurant staff, they where very poorly trained and every meal time they made lots of mistakes constantly forgetting various items for our meals and we had to repeatedly request service, in fact 2 nights before our departure we where asked to leave the restaurant as they had a private party and basically there where no tables for the hotel guests, most evenings there where very drunk americans at the bar shouting and very drunk while we tried to enjoy our meal, also our last day they closed the pool to hotel guests as they had a private wedding taking over the whole hotel, very disappointing, don't think we will be booking this hotel again.

        I loved the design of this place. I loved the smell when we first entered our room. So aromatic And itsinterior was beautiful. I can tell they took a hard time decorating the place. Which is a great thing. I just loved everything about this place. The food too was great! Service was fast and delicious! Staff was attentive and helpful. Free shuttle too to airport for us. I would definitely recommend this to those who are looking for a budget-friendly but awesome Place. Would come back too definitely!

        It should have been better”

        The venue was nice. It is picture perfect. We arrived in the hotel dawn. the room is not prepared and it is small. to think that we upgraded the room to superior room. breakfast was longanisa, hotdog, cornbeef and bangus. Imagine if you are staying there for a long period of time. They are very short in staff. I pity the frontdesk because they are the frontliner. I hope the management do something about increasing their staff. our rooms was not clean until 4pm because of the limited staff.

        Friendly, attentive and accommodating staff. We used the rooms as prep room for the wedding. Staff are polite; the wedding and the stay was just awesome. Thanks Venue88 and Suites88.
