The price is set too high for their service. The place needs an extreme renovation to all of the parts of the hotel! I mean ALL! From the entrance up to the elevator that I got super scared because it looked like a cardboard box that was only made into an elevator-like thing.But I was amazed that it even carried... More

The only positive thing I could mention about this hotel was the free airport shuttle although I can just as easily take a cab next time. My flight was scheduled to arrived late at night and since this was my first trip back in the country after 17 years, I choose this place to stay. What a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, the... More

Then when I had to go to Pasay bus terminal to pick up my girlfriend, the hotel shuttle wanted 1,000 peso, haha. Caught a... More

I'd stayed on May 27 for one night in Room 44 as "Economy Room" to go to Manila airport to depart for Japan on the next early morning at 06:00 AM. The hotel pick-up is reliable. Though my flight from Kalibo to Manila by 5J 342 was 90 minutes delayed and the pick-up driver didn't wait for my arrival, they... More

The hotel is currently being renovated. So they are asking for the guest's understanding, regarding noise while renovation is under way. They offer basic hotel rooms. And this hotel is mostly frequented by backpackers, mostly from The Land Down Under.

I stayed here again this year and the food service was greatly improved. The portions are always plentiful and tasty. The only complaint I have was with the noisy air conditioner in the room. I thought it was only in my room but when I turned off the air con I then could here all the other ones were noisy... More

Checked in & went up to room. A/C not working, tv not working. Room dark & dingy. Bed horrible. Was shown 2 other rooms. Both were bit better but still unacceptable. Demanded refund & left immediately. Found better for same money across road.

As stated by previous reviewers, this hotel is in dire need of a lift, room amenities are very old, linen old, tv old, elevator old. The air conditioner was loud and dirty, shower taps looked like they would fall off at any time, toilet ran constantly unless the flush leaver was pushed back up. The good points-yes there are some,... More
