Went here last May. Stayed for 2 nights. The place was very basic. But I liked it. Nothing fancy. Affordable and basically has everything you need. I felt secure and safe too. From airport it's not really that far. Though we needed an extra time on coming here because the driver had to search for this hotel. But over all....

Very good, friendly staff. I stayed about two weeks. It’s walkable to the Gaisano Mall and other food places. Only down side is the wifi, sometimes slow and breakup often. And guests smoked in the common areas with the smoke flowing into the vents and your room.

in the center of town. Booked this as an emergency alternative since we were disappointed with the resort we were booked in. The place is clean, the staff is friendly and it is definitely value for money. We booked for 2 nights and were satisfied by the service and accommodations we got.

My friends and I had a really horrible experience with D'Leonor Inland Resort and after 1 night of stay we were on a lookout for another. We saw North Zen in google and we decided to try out. The lobby may not be air conditioned but the place definitely is a win!!! Their rooms were clean, beds are comfy, restrooms...

The room rates are quite pricey. Relatively far from the mall areas but I still stayed there for 4 days. I find the interior of the hotel nice and also the room. What I just don't like is that they don't have elevator which is very inconvenient for rooms in the third and fourth floor.

Cheap, very affordable sleep but needs a lot of improvement on room cleanliness and customer service. We never tried their food, their resto just beside so cannot comment. Overall, its just worth of what you pay for.

It definitely needs a better service. The people on the desk are somehow a bit rude. The room is cheap and you basically get what you pay for. Bring your own toiletries if you are a luxury traveller. Don't expect elevators or escalators. They require you to use the stairs so good luck with your heavy baggage. Also, the pillows...
