We stayed 2 nights at Shogun hotel mid June, 2011.
We chose Shogun for a few reasons - 1. proximity to the airport. 2. Price 3. Because it had a pool and high speed internet. We liked everything about Shogun except for the location. It is in a very loud, dirty, busy part of Pasay and not a place I would like to explore as a tourist. A solo female traveler - unless street smart may not feel comfortable here.
We had read a few mixed reviews but decided to give it a try since most of the not great reviews ones didn't seem like it would matter to us (ie room service, etc).
Our taxi ride from the airport (we didn't use the service to get there) took us about 15 minutes and was just under 300p. Our taxi driver was telling us that it was not a good area to stay in and that we shouldn't stay there but we already had a reservation.
The room was good - desk, bed, tv, clean bathroom, ac. The only "complaints" would be that the mattress was one of the plastic foam type mattresses which retains some heat when sleeping and there isn't a lot of natural light from the small video. Also, it would have been nice to have 2 small water bottles in the room upon arrival - it took a long time to order two bottles from the rooftop bar.
The staff was great, I felt safe inside the hotel. Breakfast was fine. Internet was GREAT - super fast, consistent and held a clear skype call. We loved that they had a 24 hour checkout, we checked out 48 hours after we checked in which was a HUGE conveinence for us. The pool was nice - although we ended up not using it and I think you might need to ask for them to open it for you. We used the airport transfer service to the airport when we left.
If we came back through we would consider staying at the Shogun again - the only thing that would keep us from staying would be the location - but for a night or two it was just fine. If you are super particular about location this isn't the place for you - but if you want a cheap place for a great value def look into Shogun
