I stayed here for a month. I chose this hotel because I needed to be close to PGH (Philippine General Hospital). Location was perfect for this reason- it took me less than 5 minutes to walk there. It is also very close to Robinson Mall (5 minute walk) which has a decent grocery store and many food places. I was... More

This is an older hotel, so don't expect a fully renovated, shiny experience. But the rooms/apartments are huge, and make you feel like you are staying somewhere homely rather than a formulaic hotel -- very nice if you are traveling a lot. Many eating and shopping options close by, just take the usual amount of care on the surrounding streets.

This is a hotel where you need to stay with a group of 3 or 4 in one apartment. Location is close to a big shopping center and many restaurants. The airconitioning is noisy and you may need to have ear plugs. The street can be little dangerous if you walk alone.

Reasonable price to rent an apartment. As others have commented the internet is a bit iffy, the staff is nice and very helpful. They will store your luggage for a fee if you want to travel to other parts of the Philippines There is a nice view of the bay from most balconies

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
