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

Lots of people have recommended Tropicana for its value and convenient location. So I took the recommendation and booked in for 2 months. After all, it's within walking distance of office, Manila bay, hundreds of restaurants, and pratically across the street from supermarket and shops at Robinsons Plaza. It has a good pool, adequate Internet, and the rooms are large.... More

Very near the mall when you need something to buy. Also the staff are courteous and accommodating. The rooms are clean, though a bit aged. There are different types of rooms for those who wish to have kitchen facilities and others are just studio types. The room rates are reasonable compared to other 3star places. Best to book a reservation... More
