We booked a matrimonial room good for 2 persons. The room is very basic with towels, hangers, cabinet, tv and air-condition. They only provide small soap so you should bring your own toothpaste and shampoo. The room was spacious and has a good view from the glass window overlooking the Sto. Nino Church and the City Hall. The room look... More

If you're not picky about internet connections, this place is a good deal. Elevator can only accommodate a few heads. Right next to it is a souvenir shop for shirts and... More
