Although located on the University Campus in effectively a huge park and is therefore very quiet, this does not make up for the disappointment. Rooms are clean, but sparse and the shower has virtually no water coming out of it. The restaurant is cheap, but no selection. No laundry service available and very limited toiletries provided

The University of the Philippines in Diliman was my home for a few years. It is mostly green and is a huge campus. The roads are well managed and a whole section around the campus is only for bikers and joggers. Trees. Trees. So many trees. So much open space. Transportation around the campus is by jeepneys. Those marked "Ikot"... More
