I have been in Lancaster Hotel on its ribbon cutting last 2009. It is nice to be back after a decade. I was just a bit disappointed though as it was not as royal as before. Here are the 16 Things To Expect in Lancaster Hotel, Mandaluyong City, Philippines!
1.) Good Night View
2.) Pool for the Kids
3.) 2 Chairs and a Table on their Deluxe Room
4.) A Lot of Traffic in the elevator
You can also see a lot of Chinese tenants in the building.
You can borrow cooking utensils too!
7.) Free Robes
8.) Limited Pillows when fully booked
We called housekeeping to borrow more pillows…but they can no longer provide any..
9.) Borrowed additional utensils
As we have Liezel’s sister, Jennyca, we requested additional plates.
10.) Photo Op
11.) Limited Water
There are only two bottled water available. After that, you have to pay for additional bottles.
12.) Breakfast Buffet
Food, maybe 7/10 rating.
You can dial local numbers for free!
14.) Slow Internet
We were supposed to publish our vlog. We expected that internet connection should be strong. Not sure if it is because our room is located on the 19th floor.
15.) Internet Connection Limited to 3 gadgets only
