Unique, quirky, wonderfully atmospheric … This hotel is a treat for a first-time guest. Stayed 2 nights in an aquarium room, and we loved the “room-with-a-blue-view” spectacle. Our room had no windows, just a huge aquarium that gave us an almost round-the-clock spectacle, as our kids enjoyed tracking the various types of fish and quickly settled on some favorites (the...

Very nice room with relaxing ambiance. Very comfortable bed. I love the free buffet breakfast at Makan Makan Restaurant. Big parking lot space. I have no issue at all. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives.

This was my first trip to Manila. The hotel was booked for me as it was a business trip so i had no idea what to expect. When i arrived i found the hotel in what appeared to be an amusement park along the lines of Sea World. The hotel was new, immaculately clean and the room was beautiful. I...

I'm from Oz and find your aquarium room interesting so I made my booking for 3nights. I was not expecting your hotel to be in the middle of the Oceanic park so that's an added bonus . We enjoyed our stay and didn't even went out of the complex as there were shops, theme park and fish spa to amuse...

Bought an Aqua room with spa treatment (Hotbed and cold stone facial) as an online deal staycation with my wife to shake our work stresses off. Hotel H2O did not fail. Even you are on downtown Manila, it doesn't feel like one as you get to enjoy the beauty of Manila bay and their cozy rooms with a relaxing wall-full...

Sending a late review from our trip to Manila last year. Love the relaxing, cozy and exclusive ambiance of the hotel. Interiors in the lobby are trendy and functional. The room is spacious and modern and amenities are great! Love the breakfast buffet with a variety of food and viands that you could choose from. Service is also great and...

Coming from the United States, and my first trip to the Philippines, I enjoyed my stay here. It had great service. We had an ocean view room which was nice. It was clean and everything worked fine. Due to the time zone change, I tried to nap during the day which was difficult because the loud speaker from some event...

I am writing this from my room. Small rooms and very small bathroom with no privacy at all. Free wifi which is good. Breakfast is kind of poor with not very good quality. The location is fine as is the service. The carpets do not seem very clean to me in the room, and the bed is quite uncomfortable. Basically,...

Well I have travelled a lot and have never slept in an aquarium room. It was beautiful and very relaxing. Our blood pressure dropped while we stayed - it was an amazing experience! Very clean rooms & beautiful staff. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel H2O is the first and only marine-themed urban resort hotel in the Philippines. Opened on April 10, 2010, the hotel is part of the Manila Ocean Park complex in the Philippine capital’s historic Rizal Park. It has been designated as the official residence for guests and patrons of Manila Ocean Park.Every part of Hotel H2O has a connection to its namesake element, water – from its next-door proximity to Manila Ocean Park; to its location on the edge of Manila Bay; to its signature aquarium wall that adorns the inner guest rooms and grand ballroom; to the seafood specialties of its main F&B outlet, Makan Makan Asian Food Village; to the healing, negative-ion treatments of its wellness center, Zenyu Eco Spa. All these make Hotel H2O perhaps the most visually distinctive urban property in the country today. ... more   less
