Good site near LRT-1 Carriedo station. Nearby large street markets. If you like the area in which practically you won't meet Europeans, this place for you. The hotel rather clean (only in a bathroom on a floor there lives a mold), conditioners work perfectly. Beds excellent. In my presence there was no declared free Internet access, but near hotel there... More

I found the previous predominantly negative reviews to be at odds with my recent 22 day stay at Golden City Hotel. In terms of location you couldn’t ask for better – right next to the LRT station, a 3 minute walk to three different enormous supermarkets (plus a number of smaller stalls), right on the edge of the Quiapo based...

Had a wonderful time here. The hotel staff are nice and friendly. Room is very clean. Located in the center of Manila (very busy street). Good Food, Free Wifi. Although the place is not very classy nevertheless travelers on a budget. You'll get your money's worth. I'd be back.

It was not comfortable to stay in this hotel. It was dirty everywhere. The bed, the towels and the slippers were so disgusting! The bathroom there is so small that the shower is just above the toilet bowl. I absolutely don't recommend this to anyone. You will just waste your money..seriously. And the area is very unsafe!

Stayed there two nights, one night in a standard room and the other in the "suite". First of all, most locals say that this area is quite bad to go at night. Apparently there are a lot of snatchers in the area. Secondly, the hotel maintenance is poor, the rooms are not clean and the entrance of the hotel stinks.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in January 2012. This was one night too much! - The room was dirty, with other people's hairs all over the floor and in the bathroom. - The bed was so hard that we may as well have been sleeping on the floor. It was incredibly uncomfortable. - The room rate... More
