Stayed in room 501 for one night this room had been refurbished and in my opinion done very well indeed. With being at the front of the hotel there was some road noise through out the night which would annoy some guests. A new a/c unit had been fitted and was excellent hardly any noise from it at all.

I believe that the 4th Floor has started Refurb as well with soft furnishing and painting. As usual the food is excellent quality with emphasis on Australian cuisine, with generous helpings as reasonable prices.... More

A nice enough spot to stay for those on a budget and dont mind staying in this area. The young lady at the front counter was very friendly and had a smile that lights the room. I've stayed here on numerous occasions when passing through Manila and will again.

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.
