I wish I had taken photos of the bathroom. In short, the curtain was stained beyond acceptable wear and tear. I showered with the curtain open because I was so skeeved out. The corners of the whole bathroom shower area were black. The toilet had a ring around it like it hadn't ever been cleaned. Mind you, this was after...

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much in the hotel when I visited Zamboanga last month (January 2017). I was quite surprised that the Garden Orchid was very nice and could compete as a business hotel in Metro Manila. I understand there is an old wing (the original hotel) and a new wing. I stayed in the new building. The...

It was an equally great promo from CEBUPAC that beckoned me to revisit Zamboaga. Fifty years ago, it was labeled as the city of flowers and indeed there was so much orchids and flowers in many private homes.but I didn't see much flowers now except in Fort Pilar where bouquets of mini rosettes are being peddled for offerings. Anyway, this...

I believe that I reviewed this hotel in 2011 before the new wing (tower) was complete. That review is due for an update... Because I'm a light smoker, I chose a room in the old wing where smoking is allowed on the balconies only. The new wing is completely smoke free and there is a no smoking policy within both...

The hotel is huge with good view of the whole city and Zamboanga peninsula on the other end. It has a central location that makes it ideal for tourist who wants to navigate the city proper. Another good point is the proximity of hotel to airport and the free airport-hotel transfer. Mobile connectivity was outstanding (Globe) giving me an average...

Points for being really close to the airport. You can literally walk from the airport to the entrance of the hotel. There are 2 wings here - I got a room in the older part of the hotel. Room is comfortable, spacious, with old, funky furnishings. They have a nice Japanese restaurant in the premises, one of the few such...

We stayed here for 3 nights while we visited my fiancé's family. I felt very safe here even though I had been warned to be cautious as a westerner in southern Mindanao. They provided me a driver and vehicle for very reasonable prices. The restaurant was nice and the staff was even more so. I stayed in the older wing...

Orchid Garden remains to be the biggest, newest and most comfortable hotel in Zamboanga. It has a new wing that are newly refurbished but its potential is yet to be maximized. It has to go more notches up so that it can have a good ambience and carry its name with class. This means making sure that restrooms are clean,...

Stayed in the new building. Simple clean room and bathroom with good room service. hotel is close to the airport. Main problem is that there is no wifi in rooms except for wired internet upon request, otherwise you have to go to the lobby.
