The hotel has basic amenities and complimentary breakfast. If you will be out for adventure the whole day, this is okay because it is along Rizal Ave and very accessible. The hotel is old so don't expect too much from this. Try their barbecue :-)

You can considering staying at the hotel if you just need a decent place to stay in. They just have basic room amenities and hotel facilities. Bathroom needs a little renovation. Breakfast was quite good for the rate. Staff was accommodating.

Air conditioner: Cool... More

What you think... A wedding package was booked at the Skylight hotel for the wedding of my Brother and his Fiancé. Unfortunately the poor service and careless attitude of the staff spoilt what should have been a perfect joyful day for the happy couple. The waiting staff at the reception were unfriendly - not even smiling or able to be... More

stayed here for three nights and it was definitely amazing. Excellent staff there is. They were very friendly and the initiative to offer assistance was always present. Rooms were just ideal for the given price. It was modern and spacious. I stayed in their deluxe room and it was the perfect place to stretch-out and relax after a day work/tour.... More

Rooms are spacious. The hallway is quite charming. The hotel layout is quite confusing though. The food on the other hans is quite average. But their chicken inasal and bibingka are interesting. Relatively decent place to stay in.

The location is not bad, since you are accessible to convenient stores and restaurants. But the rooms need major upgrades. The adjacent lobby, transforms to a buffet restaurant at night on weekends. the food are affordable, but so-so in taste. Improve your comfort level please.

We got this hotel from a suggestion of a travel agent so I'm not really aware of the price and the breakdown from a package tour. We stayed in a standard room, was clean, linen was changed everyday, clean towels were provided and changed, AC was good and the best thing -the free WiFi is super fast. When it comes... More

We chose Skylight Hotel because my mom had already stayed here before so there's no worry about the cleanliness of the rooms. The only remaining question was the price so I called their Manila office and inquired. Well, well, well, they were very affordable! Their budget room for two people costs P1300 and their budget room for three people costs... More
