I stayed at the aqua room for 2 nights. It was an amazing experience. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The entire main wall of the room was a tropical aquarium. Its a very calming and wonderful experience just watching the aquarium. Its a must try if your in the area. The hotel has an excellent restaurant called...

The rooms are modern and clean but I can clearly hear the people on the adjacent room - so they can hear us as well. The service is good with nice staff but there is nothing to do the hotel in the evening unless you step out, which could be difficult due to the hotel's location away from the main...

I stayed at this hotel my first night in the country. The hotel had a modern and inviting design. The rooms are very clean and organized. While the room can be considered on the smaller end of things I did not have an issue with it. Anyone who has been to major cities will understand the limitation. The room is...

We had a great stay. This hotel has excellent service. We stayed in an Aqua Room and thought it was so fun. The only weird thing I would say is that the room itself wasn't thought out properly -- the bathroom is a little weird, with only one door that serves as a door to the shower and the bathroom,...

It was a truly disappointing staycation for us. For starters, we had to cue for a long time to check in though the receptionist was charming and very welcoming. What caught my eye was the very small and crowded lobby, some guests were even standing and the 2 small vases at the check in counter with wilted flowers! Is this...

I stayed in a room and my child (6-year-old) was very excited to see large aquarium covering one side of the room with colorful fishes! The hotel is inside the Manila Aqua Park, and a bit far from shopping areas. It is close to different historic parts, that we were able to cover in a one-hour horse ride. There are...

Front desk lady is courteous but quite inefficient... imagine her asking me to come back three times (with 10mins interval) just to follow up if our room is ready. Deodorizer is REALLY STRONG when we entered the room we almost got suffocated. At dinner time we called housekeeping to ask for extra plates with spoon and fork, they said yes...

This hotel is housed inside the Manila Ocean Park. If you are a first time to visit the hotel, ill bet you'll have a hard time looking for the reception as what i have experienced.

This hotel has so many ingredients which could make it a delightful place to stay, but is let down by strange eccentricities. The rooms are comfortable, but the toilet and shower look directly into the bedroom, shielded only by frosted glass and making you feel quite exposed. The bay view from our room was excellent, but the hotel is embedded...

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
