You get what you pay for and the Primrose is a budget hotel. Very noisy rooms and an extremely tight squeeze between the toilet and entry to the shower. Overall the place is shabby and breakfast inedible slop.

Room was ok.. clean..with the basic amenities. i wish the room had windows though.. no room service. but since it's in the downtown area, food was not a problem. go down to get fresh air. going up was a different story. the only available rooms at that time were in the 4th floor.

I admit I didn't do a lot of research in choosing this hotel. I didn't have internet access that day and basically just walked into the first place I came across. The advantage of this hotel is the proximity to downtown transportation and the waterfront. The wifi inside the hotel is limited to the lobby. My room was on the... More

I have stayed at the Primrose on two seperate occasions. Firstly, shortly after Typhoon Haiyan and as one can expect the conditions were not great. Going there again recently (9 months after Haiyan, with everything repaired back to normal it seems) unfortunately the place is still quite run down with poor amenities. Wifi only in the lobby. AC worked fine... More

Been to tacloban and stayed in this hotel. They have newly renovated rooms. Not much amenities, however, the rooms are clean and the price was very affordable. Would recommend to friends who will take a quick trip to tacloban.

The hotel has no extravagant amenities, but, it has a decent newly renovated room with average service for a very good price. Sits at the heart of the city and close to fastfood chains, shopping center and the cit's central business district. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

The Primrose is below the minimum standard hotel that I would usually stay at, but circumstances being as they were, there was little choice, and from what I have read about other hotels in Tacloban, there may not be much difference between them. Good points - right in the heart of town, close to fast food (you'll need it), the... More
