For the price you expect the basics, the difference is the staff and how they use what they have. All the staff knew my name within ten minutes and I felt at home straight away. I stayed away from the lift as it broke down twice in three days. The bar is very relaxed and safe, live entertainment and billiard... More

I had e-mailed a week before to arrange an airport pickup, room with window, and airport drop off for my layover in Manila. I even sent a second e-mail to follow up during my layover in Tokyo. The hotel did not pick me up, they left me waiting at the Manila airport which was not fun. When I finally overpaid... More

The hotel is kinda shabby but the kitchen at the bar is pretty good, old place but the food is ok, the bar itself is all mostly older people. Con... if you use credit card they charge 5% extra kinda bogus. The entertainment was not bad. Pool table contest Monday thru Saturday prizes.

I have been coming to this Hotel for almost 2 years. It is very centrally located, near Intramuros (Rizal Park) and the bayfront. They have a shuttle service which I have used which is quite nice and convenient. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and you get more personal service since it is a small scale place 20+ rooms.... More

The hotel has great staff and good atmosphere in the restaurant/bar. The food is good and the bar prices cheaper than further down MH Del Pilar St. The hotel is under new management and the bar is back to its old popularity again. The rooms are all air conditioned and well priced. You are really made to feel welcome by... More
