Nothing flash about it but for the price it is excellent, rooms functional and clean for the age of the hotel, breakfast was nice as well. Location is where the action used to be near Ermita, not exactly family friendly area if you have small kids, it's a bit rough but so is most of Manila, I did not feel... More

Thank you for the review. We have different types of rooms, from functional rooms for budget-conscious travellers to flashier, newly-renovated rooms for guests who may want to pamper themselves. All rooms are large and clean with an unbeatable location. Hope to see you again soon. More

I have stayed at the Rothman 3 times over many years, the last time 8 years ago. The hotel is now very dated and in need of an overhaul. The carpets are old and dingy, the tv was from the 80's or 90's and the cable signal was somewhat fuzzy. The restaurant was good. Friendly staff. You are much better... More

Average hotel, the staff quite helpful but the Adriatico Street on which it is located can get unwellcoming at night. Many people staring at you waiting for a good moment to steal your phone from your pocket for example. :) . If the hotel was in another area I would cosider using it again.

Sorry to hear that the area made you feel that way. Rest assured that when you follow the following simple traveller tips that you would have a safe, trouble-free stay in the area: 1. Don't entertain solicitations from strangers including street children and beggars. 2. Use our in-room safety deposit box or hotel safety boxes at the lobby to secure... More

The staff at the Rothman were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself seems a bit old and dated but overall is clean and functional. The wifi worked great and it had a selection of complimentary toiletries. We only spent one night here but were not a huge fan of the neighbourhood. This is our own fault though as we wanted...

Thank you for recommending Rothman Hotel to other travellers. You are right when you say Malate is less "polished" than Makati. Malate offers the old world charm of Manila that is very different from Makati. Location is also central as Malate is very near the airport, the Manila Bay, the walled city of Intramuros including Rizal Park. Most areas are... More

Very conveniently placed hotel,situated in the buzzing area of Malate,surrounded by a good array of various businesses,shops,restuarants,and within walking distance looms large is Robinsons shopping mall,a great experience in itself.The hotel itself is unassuming from its outward appearance,discreetly,set back of the main road.But don't let that detract you from what it offers you when you are within its small,welcoming reception...

Thank you for taking the time out to write a review. It is so nice to hear from a regular guest like you. Excellent advise to fellow travellers as well. You said don't flash which is perfect. It is better to just blend in with the people and be smart. Mix with the street kids but don't give money to... More

Good hotel. It's cheap, clean and has everything you need to go with including room service and massage etc. The bathtub is a treat especially after walking around in the humidity that Manila has to offer. Staff are friendly and checked us in quickly. The hotel even leaves a form on the bedside table assuring guests of their safety basically... More

I stayed here for 2 nights for a business trip. I was skeptic at first knowing that this was in Malate but I was really surprised when we finally saw their hotel lobby and then I knew I was wrong about my judgment when I finally saw my room. It was really very huge and I wasn't expecting the bathroom... More

Conveniently located in the heart of Malate, accessible to a mall, lots of restaurants, easy access to transport, friendly staff. And if you love to dance while on vacation this is the place to go! Ballroom every night- Monday to Saturday from 6pm to 1am! Affordable price and with good dance instructors waiting for you!
