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 Beds are good but just a bit hard for me, bathroom is also good with a bathtub but a bit worn out and outdated.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!
