"A ROYALE TREAT INDEED"
Apollonia Royale Hotel is the best hotel that I found in AC, Clark. Where do I even begin to describe this hotel, great location, great facilities on offer, excellent rooms, and bunch of excellent and very professional staff.
I stayed twice on my trip once when I arrived to Clark for 2 days and then when I left Clark for 3 days and believe me this was the best decision and choice I made.
Location: this hotel is located like 30 mins from the airport, very easy accessible by taxi and its a well known hotel with taxis.The hotel is close to a well known money changer called Norma's Money changer, where I used always, good rate. Close to a 24 hrs laundry place charged 28 Php per kg, drug store on the main road, convenience stores, eateries, restaurants and the famous Walking Street is like 5 minutes walk to all the bars and night clubs. ideally this hotel is in right location and everything that a traveler needs is just at walking distance. The SM Clark Mall is like 10 minutes walk.
Rooms: Well stayed in 406 (Deluxe Room) and 409 (Executive Room) on my two trips and the room was excellent, bed is very comfortable, the rooms has all the basic amenities like a safe, TV.Cable, tea/coffee maker and free bottled water every day. The toilets are fresh, with hot/cold water. The room rates are good if you book online with Hotels.com and it comes with plated breakfast for one person if you book a deluxe room and 2 if you book Executive or any higher rooms, this was a bit strange as deluxe rooms allows two person but the breakfast is only offered for 1 person so you end up paying extra for the second breakfast, hope that the management can look into this as it not normal.
Service: Well this is the best part of my entire stay, from check in to checkout, to housekeeping to F&B service all was excellent, though they did miss out my airport pickup in the beginning, but it was all water under bridge, after I saw the level of service they offered. Breakfast was OK as it was plated and was limited, could improve on this part but the service was fast and friendly. I would like to thank all the staff for their professional and friendly service offered to me during my staff, special mention to KRISHA. TRINA. MAY. KC and KLARISSE (with the best smile in the group) and JERNY. MYRA. MARLENE. ALDEN. JAYAR and SARAH, a big thank you to all for everything. Chef and Manager Duy Baltazar leads a good team in this place and all the best to them.
All and all I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Clark. Will surely book the same next time in get in CLARK.
