So my husband and I arrived early morning around 2am from NAIA terminal 1. The staff are so slow to check us in. We were so tired and just wanted a hot shower and a nice comfortable beds. We booked for a standard room, no AC and the bathrooms are outside the room. We were expecting that we will have... More

As an avid solo traveler I have stayed in many hotels and will assess this one accordingly. The room I chose was budget (though it was not cheaper if you compare standard budget rooms elsewhere)--but even budget rooms have minimum quality. There is no excuse for that if you cannot maintain that. So, please don't try that.The room was terribly... More

I stayed here as a stop over prior to my trip to Boracay. The staffs were really accommodating. I even asked to wake me up before 5 am and they did. Follow up on me after 30 minutes if I have already woken up. Will definitely stay here again!

This was the first place I stayed in Manila. It's difficult to rate a place based on location in Manila, as the metro area is enormous and opinions on what constitutes a good or bad location is highly subjective depending upon what type of experience one in looking for. With that said, if you're in Malate to engage in all... More

We stayed there 4 times during our trip to the Philippines and had 4 different rooms. There is a big difference between the rooms as some of them were recently renovated. They let us check in very early for no extra charge. From there you can walk to the old town easily since it is close and the neighborhood fells... More

The rooms are small and a bit musty, but it's good value for money. The people are really nice and helpfull. The neighbourhood is a bit shady and not for everybody. If you want luxury, go to Makati. If you want the real Manila, stay here. Try eating at the Korean Palace two blocks down, it's really nice. The bar... More

The hotel has that old charm with great wood work all over . It is safe and secure . However , like all hotels big and small in Manila , this was another overpriced hotel for your dollar . I agree with the other reviews that the rooms are looking tired , the telephone instrument is dirty . The shower... More

Hello! Thank you for your suggestions. It is truly appreciated. You failed to mention that you were offered to be transferred to a deluxe room at the same rate and you declined. It is difficult for maintenance to fix the problem when the personal property of our guest are all over the room. You finally agreed to move to a... More

We stayed here after running out of vacancy at Where2Next hostel across the street and wanting to stay another night. It was a step up in price, but unfortunately a step down in quality and service. The building is nice, with great tiling and old world style, but the rooms are tired, with old mattresses and AC units that don't... More

Hello! Thank you for your comments. I will investigate. There are two security guards on our front gate at night and a night front desk staff in the lobby. I've never heard a negative comment about our security guards who have been with us for more than a decade. As far as the night staff on desk duty, I will... More

We came here intending to stay for 8 nights originally; however, after spending about 10 minutes in the room, we went downstairs and changed our reservation to one night. The room was really dark (no windows) and smelled HEAVILY of mildew - it was nauseating. The beds were ok, but the room and the bathroom were tiny and didn't seem... More
