This place was not our first choice, but the rooms were available at a discount because of their anniversary deal, so we checked in. Even without the discount they give fair value. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, wifi works fine, and you can hardly hear the AC. Plated breakfast is included, served at the roofdeck cafe, and one gets to choose from 5 sets (a variety of Filipino with rice or toast, waffles, cereal). Each floor also has a water cooler so one can always refill their water bottle. Housekeeping also provides two complimentary water bottles daily. The hotel is within easy walking distance to Fuente where fastfood outlets, drugstores, Robinson's Cybergate Mall, and Robinson's Dept. Store and Supermarket are located.
Nice and polite staff. They let us inspect the rooms before making reservations, and we didn't have problems when we asked for a different room when we checked in (we changed our minds and opted for the king size bed in a smaller room w/o fridge). The security guards are quick to open the doors for you, and extra helpful in hailing a taxi while they ask you to sit by the entrance. We appreciate this especially when it was raining and the guard walked down the street in an umbrella to get a cab. The staff at the roof deck cafe are also prompt and courteous.
CONS: Noise from the street. We thought because the hotel is located in a not so busy street it would be okay. But barking dogs kept me up at 11 pm and woke us up again early in the morning. We can also hear voices of people talking below our window. I would have preferred the white noise of an AC. This may not be a problem with rooms away from the street.
It's also odd that the smaller deluxe room has a king size bed, while the more expensive junior suite has a queen size bed.
