Stayed at this hotel overnight for leisure time.
I booked my room a day prior to my stay using the hotel's website, and the process was fast and seamless.
Chek-in was also a breeze: it took the front desk staff less than five minutes to confirm my booking, make me sign some papers, hand me the room keys, and dispatch me with a bellboy to my room.
I got a one-bedroom suite, which has a separate living room/dining room/kitchen and bedroom (where the bathroom was also located). On the living room was a couch, armchair and coffee table. The dining area was composed of a four-seater table. Over at the kitchen was a refrigerator (which also serves as the mini bar - price of items only a bit higjer than those foundnin convenience stores), an electric hot plate and oven, water heater, cooking utensils, and dinnerware (good for two people; I guess you could request for additional items from housekeeping). Over at the bedroom was a sngle, large bed fronting the sink/dresser/tv stand. There were also two spacious closets inside the bedroom. The suite had a balcony facing the main road (EDSA). On a positive note, the room was spacious, aircon kept room temperature comfortable, and hot and cold water was abundant in supply. The place is showing signs of age though (i.e.paint cracking from some places,distinctsmell of mildew in the cabinet under the kitchen counter and sink) although there are visible attempts from management to renovate some rooms.
I ordered from room service, and while they had a limited selection of dishes, the food was good (I tried breakfast, dinner and snacks) and reasonably priced. It took the kitchen staff about 30 minutes to process a food order, which is acceptable for me.
Chek-out also took about five minutes, the wait attributed to inspection of the room by housekeeping staff for things forgotten and, more importantly, of mini bar items consumed or hotel property missing.
In general, staff were courteous, and appeared to have positive disposition towards guests. Of note, though, was that the security officer did not offer to lend a hand in transferring my luggage from the taxi trunk to the lobby (I had three separate luggage items with me) upon my arrival.
Apart from the hotel's obvious age, the other downside of this hotel is it's location. It is quite far from the nearest convenience store/grocery, so you would have to either buy everything from the hotel, or make purchase your needs outside prior to check-in (I did the latter). Since the hotel is located along a major avenue, rooms located along the front of the hotel would also tend to experience some ambient noise even with all windows closed.
Overall, however, I would say that this place still gives you value for your money. Those looking for better service should opt to stay in other nearby, pricier hotels.
