We stayed in the one bedroom suite, was very nice. You can see a lot of the rooms are being renovated. Have stayed here for about the 10th time, short walk to all that you need - shops, massages, taxis can be called to the front door of the hotel. I don't recall seeing the pool sign previously that outlines... More

I have walked by the Tropicana many time over the years but never stayed there. Recommendations from collogues convinced me to stay. I couldn’t have been happier. Yes some of the rooms need some work but they are refurbishing rooms one floor at a time. I was not so concerned the room was old but enjoyed that it was clean,... More

A return visit as we were last here in October 2012. Not much has changed. It is a good functional hotel. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with a kitchen area, a dining table, a sitting area, two balconies and two bathrooms with showers. No real negatives - it is an old building but the rooms are kept clean... More

For a short-term stay on a budget, or a long-term stay on a budget, the Tropicana Apartment Hotel in Manila's faded but well-located Ermita/Malate district may be the place for you -- if you don't mind a drab environment, albeit one with a very comfortable bed, spacious suite, and excellent service. For some, the Ermita/Malate area has its charms --... More

I stayed here on the last part of my trip in the Philippines (Nov-Dec). I've previously stayed here 5 and 8 years ago and would still recommend it to people. It's not even a 5 minute walk to Robinsons Mall and a 5-10 minute walk to the MRT. It is central to everything and easy to get to. I stayed... More

My cousin from abroad booked a 2-bedroom suite @ the hotel for 2 nights as she requested us to stay with her while in Manila. It was just like home, a nearby Chinese resto, convenience store and a salon. A few minutes walk to Robinson's mall where you find all sorts of things, The best thing for us is that... More

the location is right smack central and the street is not so busy. Just a walk away to the shopping center (robinsons) where I got my 3G SIM card and I like the grid streets at night. Going into the unit was like.... "I do not need so much space. I can pack easily 8 visitors in the unit." On... More
