I stayed here for a week in July 2014. Staff were excellent and courteous. The morning breakfast was a highlight. The rooms are older and need to be redone, but the location is what is special about the hotel. Also a bonus was the cheerful Thursday night lounge singer.

The lobby of this hotel is spectacular! However, once upstairs, you will realize quickly that it's hay day was around 1970. This hotel is very adequate. The rooms are large, there is AC, and the beds are decent. Do not expect much else. The wifi is horrible. The only time I connected was in the lobby. The room, while spacious,... More

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
