CTH is decent hotel to stay overnight in Manila before/after a trip to Puerto Galera as Si-Kat sales office is located in the lobby. Si-Kat bus starts its route nearby as well. The room was clean and comfortable. The wi-fi speed and breakfast were ok.

The one and only reason we booked a room in this hotel because the bus to mindoro leaves here as well but i'm sure there are much better hotels available in this crowded part of the city. I have read in reviews about the noisy rooms and although I asked in my booking for a quiet room they managed to... More

Sadly this could be a nice hotel. Worst place ever. Rats in dining room, roaches in lobby, Dirty greasy hand prints in common area walls and table tops. Holes and stains in laundry, both towels and bedding. Wi-Fi is free! Swell! It only works in the lobby, not in your room. Food was mostly okay but limited in western food,... More

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
