As im used to do (or rather was) business in Mabini Street and my main supplier had their shops just aside of this hotel i was always staying there. You can call it European standard of about 3 stars; rooms are cleaned nicely every day even if some of the rooms would need some sort of renovation some day (will... More

First stay was to facilitate onward travel via Sikat bus and boat to Mindoro, they wanted 2000 pesos cash for mini bar deposit, then took that as part payment on the whole bill, without asking, I needed the cash but seems they needed it more ! Then as my wife was leaving an hour later they asked for another 1000... More

There are plenty of hotels in this area. Book something else. Best Western is only few blocks away. It is smaller from outside, but nice and clean, better breakfast. Citystate Tower Hotel was old and crowded; the elevator was tiny and super slow. We booked a delux room, but it was ridiculously small. The matress was full sized and acient... More

i have stayed here a few times in the cheapest 1515p rooms however last time i opted for a room in the brand new annex which was priced at around 2000p, much better in my opinion and a lot quieter and larger and with a much more modern feel than the cheaper rooms where you are constantly getting staff knocking...

I found the hotel substandard, the best part of the building is the lobby, the actual rooms are terrible, with VERY noisy old window airconditioners! Each window is glued shut, so you are trapped! Get a room up high to avoid the street noise and to get a glimpse of Manila Bay. The internal rooms that face a inner shaft... More

Stayed in this hotel for 4 days only (Monday-Thursday). Although we were given a bay view room, half of it was blocked by a tall building and a construction nearby gave us a wake-up call early in the morning. Breakfast was free coz it came with the package but it was a set and there's nothing much to choose from.... More

I booked this hotel during my first few days in Manila because the hotel I had been staying in did not have vacancies for my return dates. It was located just up the street from my original hotel (Lotus Garden) & was a little cheaper. We asked to see a room & were given a choice of 2. We picked... More

We stayed at this hotel twice while I was in Manila. The first stay was just overnight and then we returned for a couple days before leaving the Philippines. During my overnight stay, it was very noisy. We could hear people singing Karaoke. There are a few bars and restaurants across the street. Good thing we stayed up talking most... More
