“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights before our flight back to Europe. We booked it through internet so the price was better than ordinary and we payed around 2600PhP/40 EUR per night for a 2x double bed room (4 persons).
When we arrived they "upgraded" us to a family room which is really huge with 2x king size beds and extra lounge area with sofa, table and a seat. There is also a "kitchenette" but it is of no use because there are no dishes, cutlery or kettle just a water sink and a tap...but there was an "empty minibar" fridge so you can use it for cooling your own drinks. Room has a great LCD TV with good choice of satellite programs (our kids enjoyed Disney channel) and a average working free WIFI in the rooms...it works much better outside the rooms.
Room has an aircon which is really huge and very noisy but it works quite good. Beds are good but just a bit hard for me, bathroom is also good with a bathtub but a bit worn out and outdated. The hotel has no restaurant just a reception desk so you can't eat here but being in Asia that's no problem at all :-) There are lots of eating options just outside the hotel...on the same street (noodles, fresh fruit,...) or in around the corner in big supermarket it you prefer that. Overall the hotel has very basic amenities, is reasonably clean, reception staff has almost no knowledge about the city but on the other hand it is very good located (at least for our needs) and has a good price performance ratio.
Location is great for visiting Rizal park, Oceanarium (walking distance, 10-15min), Roxas boulevard is just around the corner, there is also Robinson's shopping mall (great food court) just around the corner (5-10 minutes walk), Starbucks coffee, McDonalds, Jollibee are also really close. Takes just around 30 minutes to get to the Manila airport (out of the rush hours) and it's great also for visiting Manila Chinatown and Intramuros districts (we walked to the Intramuros but it's better to go there by taxi or tricycle because the way there is not really safe to walk around so on the way there we got an armed escort service :-)
Great location, reasonable price, average but decent service! Would repeat it again!

Stay here for 2 nights (during Yolanda typhoon). Cheapest among its kind. The route to this hotel is hard to find from the main road. Even the taxi driver use our googlemaps GPS to find it. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They have few pc at lobby with good internet connection.

i use to stay there a few times a year just overnight, its a small hotel with simple nice rooms so better book a room in advance to get one ! the aircons are powerful but noisy. the small breakfast is just filipino stuff. the location is in ermita with alot of beggars around. hard to find a parking space outside the hotel. in daytime the building is very busy as they have some recruting or some seaman school there beside some other offices so you might wait long time for the elevator. the price level is average ! the staff is very friendly but usual not giving discounts !

Booked here for four nights from October 18 2013. Rate was P2,000 for King Size bed. Room was very big, very comfortable bed, everything was nice and clean. Very disappointed to find the next morning that the restaurant was closed due to renovation. No other eating area in the hotel so had to check out after just the one night stay. so if you plan staying here in the next few months, make sure you ask if the restaurant, or cafe, as I think they call it, is open for business or not.

We came to this hotel because the other hotels that we wanted were overbooked, the rooms are ok but we paid 2200 PHP and its a lot of money in the Philippines, I'm think that we should be getting more than just "OK" room.

We wanted to go to the north (Banaue) so I asked at the reception if there is a bus to there so suddenly someone else came and says that we MUST go to Bagio first and than take another bus to Banaue. but I'm checked online and I saw that there is a bus directly from Manila to Banaue, so I told to the girl at the reception to call the bus company and she ordered the tickets for me.

me and my daughter stayed in this hotel last year 2012 for 5days, staff were very friendly and accommodating, we stayed on the 9th floor which is good cuz its more quiet with a great view at night. the room was spacious and they got big hidden luggage compartment by the window. room service was fast, food was great. over all, I love this hotel.

Room Tip: choose 7-9th floor cuz its more quiet.

The hotel has Huge comfortable rooms, great for a family. Very nice helpful staff. Great location. we stayed here twice - a few nights then we went to the Banaue area and then can back for another few nights. The first time we had a large room with two queen beds and the second time we had two kings.
