Over the past twenty (20) years I had been a regular patron to Citystate Tower Hotel, Manila, Philippines. Not because I like it, but rather convenient location for my related daily activities. Honestly, I had been disgusted recently for the fact that the management had mistreated me considerably over the rate increased over my extended stay. For 20 years I... More

The spacious and ornate lobby was decked out beautifully for Christmas. The front desk staff and bellmen were efficient, courteous and well informed. The hotel does charge 1000PHP to your folio...

I checked into the hotel due to being stranded by Typhoon Ruby. My normal hotel down the street was booked, so I took this one. It looked OK--nothing amazing, but OK. The problem was with the outdoor rock venue right outside the window of my room. It started up at around 9:00 or so and did not stop until 3:00... More

I found staff to be helpful and the hotel provided what I wanted. Original room in annex clean but noisy so moved to room in main building. New room was quiet and acceptable standard. it's not a deluxe hotel and if that is what you want then go elsewhere. A good basic hotel
