Stayed at this wonderful hotel, yes it's showing signs of wear and tear, but I guarantee that you won't find more friendlier staff anywhere in Manila. The rooms are a little dated, but they are exceptionally clean and comfortable with good air conditioning units. I've stayed in many hotels, but very few have impressed me like this one. I have...

Hotel is well located. That said, the carpets in the hallways should be removed as they are horribly stained. The room itself is clean and reasonably appointed. The one huge plus is a rooftop swimming pool with chaise lounges. Which is unusual in Manila Most have pool but no place to lounge about. I would stay again but for the... More

we could not find a room for a last minute booking in the area near Intramuros. In fact no even this had room s available, according to their reception, but one booking online site sold us the room and it was available! Nothing special in this hotel, save a swimming pool on the 9th floor, where you will also find... More

My first impression about the hotel is not that good. I find the lobby gloomy and old. It needs a renovation in design. But when we already went to one of its restaurants, I then realized the place is not that bad. They have this buttered salmon which I really like and the staff are very courteous. The price for...

Stayed in this hotel for one night with my wife before going to the airport the next day. Checked in to one room, and the safe did not work, carpet dirty and stained and room looked like it hadn't been painted in a long long time. Manager came and safe could not be fixed so moved to a new room.... More

At the entrance facing the main road (Taft Ave.), it was a Saturday and it seemed close. the alley was dark, smelly and scary. There was nobody in the reception area on the 1st floor. We didn't even know that we have to proceed straight to ? floor for another reception area. The check-in was a hussle. The staff seemed... More

Its a beautiful place with a mostly great staff. Its close to the US embassy P.b.I. and many other great things in Manila. Spent a week there and loved every moment. The breakfast buffet is enough to let you skip lunch. I will stay at the Pearl if I ever need to be in Manila again.

This hotel is just average, not that outstanding. What's good is their location that is very near LRT-UN ave station which will help you go about places. walking distance from Robinsons malate,PGH and Manila Doctors Hosp. The room is clean and big, and well maintained but you'll really notice that this hotel is an old one. The pool is just... More
