There it is,only a 3 minute walk from the pier as you arrive in Ormoc from other locations around the Philippines. There are cheap rooms for under 1000 pesos per night, but I prefer the nice ones facing the sea with a balcony for 1600 for one occupant and 1850 for two. Breakfast is not included with the room. However... More

So firstly let me clarify my rating. It is very good at the price. If it was more money the rating would drop dramatically. It cost $20 a night and for that you get a clean room, free wi-fi in the Lobby, pleasant staff and a reasonable nights sleep in your own room. Aircon worked and worked well :) The... More

This place was probably rather grand when it first opened. I stayed in a budget room, which was nothing special, so I can't say how good the rooms with ocean views are. There's no wifi in the rooms, but it's available in the lobby and coffee shop, which are both pleasant enough to relax in. Everything you need is close... More

Coffee shop needs to be renovated. Considering its location, very accessible to the port (though land transport terminal could not be too close to the hotel) it can be a best place to stay for travelers to & from Cebu. I had a cheese burger in a few minutes & hope its shelf life was safe since it looked like... More

Don Felipe is situated right next to the bus/jeepney terminal, across a park where there are many shows in the evening, and close to the market. it is also very close to the Ferry Terminal. Location-wise, this is very good. The hotel itself really is old, and might need some renovation. Though, for backpackers standards, it is very good! Jeepneys/multicab... More

I made an online reservation but when I arrived at the hotel the front desk informed me that they failed to take note of the reservation. It was already 11PM and I was too exhausted from the 2-hour trip from Tacloban City. I ended up staying in another hotel.
