The Pier Cuatro Hotel was recommended to me due to its proximity to Supercat Ferry terminal (about 700 m away) hence the name. My first impression was that the location tho is secluded and rather dingy. Secluded since there are no restos, stores, nor offices near it - just walled warehouses and abandoned offices. I could see SM Mall but need to take taxi to reach it. There is a BPI bank a block away which is great. I will just stay overnight so I took the room.
Night time came - whoa! Right in front of hotel is a strip club. There were throngs of tambays, rows empty taxis waiting, street vendors. I might have been happy if I'm into this kind of fun. I'm not. I just had dinner in hotel then stayed inside my room.
The hotel itself is nice. The lobby is well-lit. The reception staff were efficient. They offer good selection of meals for lunch/dinner. The grilled chicken I ordered was great. The room is compact but clean. The bathroom is spacious but I do not understand why they do not provide shampoo. Don't expect too much on the free breakfast but the danggit are ok.
Good: Proximity to Pier, short taxi ride to SM, clean room, comfy beds, reasonable price, nice restaurant, accepts credit cards, courteous staff
Bad: Unsafe environment, nudie bar right in front, no stores or restaurant around the hotel.
All the "bad" are not because of the hotel itself. I still give the hotel a 4star
