The buiding is neat and secured. The room has a modern design and I love the mirror. It also have a flexible lamp attached at theheadboard that helps me continue my reading whenever my sister is already asleep. :D We got free tea, water, breakfast,cabletv and a hot and cold shower. We commend the staff for the ontime breakfast. We request it to be available by 5am and wow itwas delivered on the exact time. Just to mention the door bell also serves as our morning alarm clock :D and it alsohelps my brother prepare his things for his exam. The staffs are friendly, courteous and always greet with a smile. QuiapoChurch, St. Jude College, Dangwa, SM San Lazaro , Rizal Park and Manila Ocean Park are very accessible from this place. Thisis a good place to stay for students who will take their board exam near St. Jude College.

This is a great place; small but amazing! The lobby has this chill atmosphere and comfortable chairs. The receptionists are veryaccomodating and professional. I didn't get to go to the second floor, but my friend says it's really great for reviewing and chilling.The breakfast is free (jollibee delivery) but hey i do not expect too much since i just want to have the energy for the day. Theplace is kinda small and not ideal for tall people (esp. when climbing up and down the stairs). The room is really worth the priceand very comforrable. It is relatively large and great for a 2-person stay, with lots of channels to choose from their TV. We didn'tget to experience their wifi here, but mobile data (for smart) signal is fast and strong so there is no worry in staying connected.

Overall, I would love to stay at this place again someday. Oriental Zen is relatively in between St. Jude college and SM SanLazaro, so it's ideal to walk but always stay vigilant!

There is only one chair in the room. Two people cannot eat on the table at the same time. No choice but
 to eat on the bed.                     

The best thing that I loved about this place is because of the energy.. The spirituality of the owner of the
place.. That strong positive energy lingers within the premise. So strong that I can feel it even without theowner standing infront of me. Overall structure of the place is the best. I really like the buddhist theme.

Near Schools and Hospitals Good price ,with Jollibee breakfast

Its a relaxing experience and the overall stay was generally peaceful and smooth. Staff were courteous and professional. Location from SM San lazaro Mall is just a few minutes walk; UST hospital is just nearby, and
a walking distance too from UST FEU and other Prime Universities in UBELT. Location from PRC is alsonear. the only complaint I have was the Slow Internet connection, and Phone instruction by reception was poor, and can still be improved!

                     Overall its an 8/10

booked a 2 room for overnite stay, requested for adjacent rooms as we're a family. The staff are courteous and
made an effort to address my request. The location is near UST where most of national exams are held. This time for the NMAT, next month is for the bar exams. The place is ideal. Booked on a typhoon weekend.... More

traffic savior

Posted May 19, 2016

I used this room because I did not want to go home from the traffic. Luckily this place was near the area where Iwork for. It was a breeze booking in Agoda where I got great value for my money. The premier was a greatchoice since I want a little bit more space. I did not want to feel very away from home. The desk area wassufficient so I could work well on my writing. There was a usb charging port so that's an extra plus. Friendly and accommodating staff always makes my day. Breakfast came on time so I was able to work my time right. For a simple and affordable place to stay for the night, I would highly recommend this. Especially if the area I needto go is around Manila. The area is also convenient to get a ride to go anywhere.

A nice hotel

This hotel is nicer than I imagine. I arrived at the hotel in the morning. I thought I may have to wait until theafternoon for check-in, but they conduct my check-in procedure very soon, and the room where I lived in isvery nice. The location of the hotel is close to UST, MS and LRT1, the room is clean, and the service isvery satisfied. After check-out at another day, I asked if I can put my baggage in the hotel for several hours, and they agreed. This is very helpful for me. Now I'd like to point out several shortages of the hotel. The pillows are identical and seem too high to me, and the sound of the air-conditioner is too loud.

Good budget place near UST
Posted Apr 13, 2017

Staff were polite, accommodating and eager to assist you. Management is very kind and generous, too. Very good location, walking distance from UST and SM San Lazaro. Parking is only for 2 cars (suv may not fit, will park parallel on street), but most likely, you'll be the only car parked there. Security guards are also ok.

Preferred choice of students for 2-night stays
Posted Mar 17, 2017

Simple restful interior. Good room with comfortable bed and cool air-conditioning. Breakfast is a choice from local fast food and can be delivered to your room even at 5:30am. Front desk is very helpful in managing local calls. Hotel is walking distance to schools and is a preferred choice of students for short 2-night stays especially during board exams.Oriental Zen Suites
