I spent almost three weeks there this winter. I had a nice room, it was clean and comfortable. Very simple. There were two problems (a light and a clogged sink) and the staff quickly fixed both issues. The staff was friendly and helpful. Beware, though of your room location. Some rooms front out on the street above two bars that... More

Close to the LRT and close to All Nations ( Heroes) Park. Manila Bay is a quick walk away and makes for a... More

We book a room with extra bed for our kid. The view from our room is not nice. We were assigned a room in the fourth floor. The bed is good. The bar outside the hotel is very noisy. The check-in crew was accommodating and fast. Checkout is also fast and efficient. There were no towels in the room and... More

The bar from the outside is very noisy, even if you're staying at the 8th floor. The remote of the aircon doesn't work, even the aircon itself didn't work. The TV is good, it has lots of channels. Staff is good except for the front desk. They didn't gave me a card to get in to my room. My dad... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were basic however the shower wasn't the greatest but hey ho it was clean. The breakfast was included however it was disgusting. You only had 2 choices on the menu and you were only allowed 1 drink you had to pay extra if you wanted more tea or coffee. I only had... More

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
