The Tropicana offers good accommodation for the price paid. The reception staff are helpful and the rooms are clean and tidy. We stayed in the 2 room apartments and whilst the bedrooms are air con the main living area wasn't. There are rooms which do have this so if staying you would need to ensure you request total air con. The air cons are window boxes and are a bit noisy however this is common in Manila if staying at budget price accommodation. The showers are fair and water pressure is a bit low. As in most hotels in Aisa double check what you have booked and if able get in writing as there was a mix up in rooms sizes as we had 3 rooms booked for all travelling and ended up with 2. Whilst this happened at midnight after a long day travelling they were very quick to get us another room which did require cleaning before we could go in. There is no restaurant but a little cafe which is ok next door. The hotel is in Ermita which is very busy, old and quite run down although there is Robinson shopping centre within close walking distance which offers many food outlets and good shopping. Their driver (Joel) is marvellous and very helpful. If on a budget a good place to stay however if you want better quality and location go to Makati.
