We booked a deluxe twin room for a cheap price through Hotel Quickly and it was an average experience for us. Photos and some reviews are so deceiving, i guess the only main reason to stay here is due to location. The hotel was conveniently located near Rizal Park, Manila Bay Walk and Manila Ocean Park. Cons: 1. So old,... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times before and still like to go there. Location is good and value for money too. Many city attractions are within a 10-15 minute walk! Be careful when walking alone at night and do NOT accept to follow people to the bars near by. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

This hotel is situated in the busy Ermita area, and as such is consumed by the Manila traffic chaos. The location is beneficial for access to Rizal Park and Intramuros, which can be reached on foot within 15 minutes. Also close by is the Robinson Mall which provides a wealth of shops and restaurants, with various other shops in the... More

City Garden Suites is in a rundown, unattractive area of Ermita but offers reasonably convenient 10 minute walking access to the Robinson's mall, bayfront prominade, and a variety of bars and restaurants. Personally, I didn't feel comfortable or safe walking around the area after dark, but there does seem to be an abundance of people out and night life activity... More

The place is centrally located and is easy to find. It is walking distance from many attractions. The price is quite affordable considering what you get. The friendly and helpful staff made the experience even more pleasurable. I was travelling alone and would definitely stay there again!

I like this hotel that i cant even think a "not so good" stuff for it. Good Ones. 1. Just right in front of the hotel is a bank ( metrobank). 2. The saying "dont judge the boom by its cover" applies to it, the facade is not that much, given the location of the hotel but when going in... More

I cant believe that having stayed in this place so many times that I haven't reviewed it.

Two one night stop overs for flight connections. Took a chance on past reviews for a lower cost hotel in Ermita and was not disappointed. The staff were all excellent and the rooms clean. Excellent restaurants and shopping mall within a few minutes walk. Standard room on the first stay that had no window but was amazingly quiet for Ermita.... More
