I stayed here for 4 nights. After a 16 hr flight from the UK I was hoping for a good night's sleep. Unfortunately I was woken at 3am by the noise of chair legs being scraped across a tiled floor, items clattering about and conversation taking place in the room next to mine. I went to investigate to discover it... More

This is a fine little hotel in a good location. The staff are friendly and helpful while the rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet. The adjoining cafe served a decent breakfast in the morning (included in my price). My only complaint was the lack of pressure in my shower. Not sure if this is a commonality among all rooms, or...

My husband and I stayed at Casa Bocobo Hotel for a night at the start and end of our trip to the Philippines. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes from the airport, depending on traffic, and airport pick-up/drop-off can be arranged by the hotel (though a local metered taxi is much cheaper). The rooms are basic but quiet, clean and... More

I booked Casa Bocobo because it was near CCP and great value for money. I was to watch Wicked that time and true enough it was a short ride from the Hotel to CCP and back. Had a good night's sleep and rooms were clean. Lights however should have at least one fluorescent quality as most of their lights were... More

We stayed here for 3 days. The rooms were great! We got 2 separate rooms and there were just excellent! The sheets,blankets and pillowcases all smelled good. Comfortable mattresses and a really relaxing ambiance. Walking distance to the resto and back in every corner. A spa sitting in front of the hotel and staff that are very hospitable. Wifi is... More

This middle of the road hotel is cheaper than many others in the area and probably a lot cleaner. The location is fairly good, although staying in Makati would better suit most other westerners. I've stayed here on two occasions over the past few years and due to stay there again soon mainly due to the value for money (and... More

Fairly good location a short walk to some attractions, dining options and shopping. The staff was always friendly and cheerful. I stood at this hotel twice, the first time I had no room options so I had to stay in a twin room and it was okay great if your on a budget. The next time I opted for the... More

This hotel is a good bargain for the price. You get what you pay for. There is nothing very special about this property except for the cheerful staff and good service. But for the money you pay, you get fairly good facilities. Rooms are sparsely furnished but it's just adequate. Everything is clean including the bathrooms. Can't complain much.

My brother found Casa Bocobo on the internet because we are looking for a place which is nearest to St. Luke's Extension clinic, as I was having my Medicals in my application for US Visa. He booked for a Standard Twin room with two beds. Upon my arrival on the hotel with my brother, the reception desk personnel were very... More

I think the high rating on this hotel is a bit misleading. Trust me this hotel is no way anywhere near the top 20 in Manila. That said, it is a cheap, well kept place to lie your head and rest for a night or two (but no more). There is no pool, nothing to do there, the room lacked... More
