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,... More

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.

Upon Agoda confirmation, I immediately emailed customer service of the hotel to arrange airport pick-up transfers, request for bed preference and early check-in accommodation. I was very much pleased with the responsiveness of their customer service, and they did everything to ensure... More

Its proximity to the Zamboanga International Airport is beneficial for travelers either with cancelled flights or waiting for another flight to cross the Tawi-Tawi islands. The ambience of the dining area and lobby is truly commendable. The Front Office's attention to detail is noteworthy, they even reminded us for our takeout breakfast since we have to leave before sunrise and... More

Garden Orchid Hotel is very near to the Zamboanga International Airport and to the Marcian Convention Center and Palacio del Sur Convention Center. Check in went smoothly - the icing on the cake was the complimentary upgrade from a standard/superior room to a suite. I appreciated the gesture but ... the suite was the last room on the 4th (and...

Garden Orchid Hotel is the biggest hotel in Zamboanga City and is so near the airport it might as well be considered as a hotel airport. Standard room amenities are a mini-bar, cable tv, coffee and complimentary bottled water. Service in the lobby restaurant is a little slow but the staff are friendly and accommodating. Room rates are a little... More

The rate we paid for this hotel was too high for a low class service hotel. staff were poor in service and very unknowledgeable about their work. The service is so poor. the water presssure from out washroom was bad. The breakfast was terrile and not child friendly

Hotel a bit pricey based on interior and breakfast. I guess you pay premium because of its proximity to the airport (you can walk). Room smells a bit, tv was I think older than me. Cable is poor in terms of sound.

The hotel is an average type, very accommodating staff and attentive also. Not much of food choice on breakfast buffet. Rooms are well maintained and clean, no wife internet but traditional cable connection for internet (internet is very slow). Accessibility very near the airport a stone throw away.
