View Park Hotel Tagaytay Reviews
Nice cozy hotel outside the city! Oct 30, 2014
I booked this hotel in the last minute through agoda.com based on the it's good rating and reviews.
This hotel is located about few kilometers outside the Tagaytay city in a quiet and decent neighborhood. However, I felt it wasn't really convenient to commute back and forth and moreover it is little isolated to everything, though the location look little natural and scenic. So, basically the inexpensive way to get to the city and attractions is by tuk tuk, even though the hotel offers taxi service which I found it not be expensive.
The hotel building is pretty nice with a very well maintained garden/park area which actually makes it like staying in a resort or a big bungalow. The biggest plus is the exterior area with many trees, plants, flowers and a nice sit-out area.
The lobby isn't big enough, so it does not have enough seating for guests.
The staff were very friendly and active helping guests, and check-in process was quick without any problems. They help with the luggage and escort to the room and then serve the welcome drink.
The room I booked is for the standard type, which was actually very standard/basic and cozy, for which I paid little over $40/night. Though the room looked nice and clean, but there wasn't anything great about it. The room is kind of hidden in a hallway, so there is no view at all though the room had a window. It just had the basic amenities such as en-suite bathroom, TV, hot shower. No in-room wi-fi, phone, mini fridge or anything, but I heard some are available in the deluxe rooms and other higher room types. Standard room guests can get the free wi-fi access password, but it only works in the lobby area.
The bed, pillows and sheets were good and nothing to complain, however, the room space is way too small and it's hard to move around. The room and bathroom lighting needs some improvement since I did not find it bright or sufficient.
The house keeping service was prompt and there was someone to assist.
The hotel has 2 restaurants, one inside and one outside. The inside one is more like a full service restaurant, while the outside one is like a cafe/bar with a nice garden settings. The basic complementary breakfast is served at inside the restaurant with limited choices, however, any choices not part of the standard breakfast menu can be ordered at an extra cost.
Apart from these places to eat, there is nothing around in a walking distance and the nearest 7-11 is about 1km walk/drive.
No attractions are really nearby, except for a picnic park with some adventure activities just opposite to the hotel. One of the popular scenic views of Taal volcano is from a Starbucks coffee shop (on mountain cliff like area) and that's the nice and closest attraction to the hotel, about 10-15mins drive.
Overall, it's a safe and decent place to stay if you would like to be in the outskirts and don't bother about commuting for everything. I think it will better fit family with kids basically looking for more relaxation than hanging out since some of the rooms have kitchen facilities as well.
