I've stayed at the Pearl many times, my last stay was April 2014. What I noticed? No real changes to the rooms, they're still a bit outdated, but I don't have any moans about the cleanliness. The room service was always very prompt and the room was made and cleaned thoroughly every day. The bathrooms like the rest of the... More

The staff were lovely however the hotel was years and years old with no new upkeep. The lobby was on the 9th floor because they had made car parks to the 8th. Free internet was only avail in the lobbies and restaurant. The food was terrible and the waiter one morning couldn't work out where to put the knife and... 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

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...

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.
