H20 Hotel, Manila, Review
I have to admit H20 Hotel is our favourite hotel in Manila.
It is not perfect, in fact I could think of a few flaws right now but having said that there are more positive features against the negative ones.
For a starter the rooms are a delight. We have now stayed in both the Aqua and the Bay view rooms. Both have charms of their own as what the Tagalogs would say “Walang itulak Kabigin”, which means it is just impossible to choose.
The only strange thing is how transparent the toilet door was. You can be heard as well as seen doing your business in there. Also there should have been a sort of barrier on the floor of the wet room from the rest of the bedroom.
I love a good full on shower and the room provides a good strong gust of water from the beautifully huge fixed shower head by the ceiling of the bathroom. Unfortunately the water splashes everywhere including where the paper toilet roll was attached, ergo it get soaked and when finally dry, it was not that fit for purpose anymore. Not only that, some water would come out of the bathroom into the room, creating a small flood just outside the shower door. Thank goodness, it did drain pretty quickly.
The housekeeping was very thorough with their job, the room was always clean and tidy.
The restaurant Makan Makan, is a revelation; it provides breakfast and it has plenty to offer in terms of variety of food, but not too much, which can leave your head in a whirl. And it is important as well to talk about the price. For just P400 pesos (which is so reasonable compared to other hotel of less varied food) you can eat as much as you like to your heart’s content.
It is a very popular hotel, especially for families. Well it is next door to Manila Ocean Park, a place which would surely amuse the kids and adults alike to no end. But do not be alarmed, you do not hear the sound of noisy children or other people/activities once you are in your own hotel room.
We would definitely stay in this hotel again.
