Good location in Ernita- around 20min -1 hour from airport MNL (when in traffic). Immediate vicinity has 7 eleven within walking distance, some shops but arrived late so didn't see many open. The bar's in the area are more catered for sex tourists as you simply can't have a beer without some hooker hassling you. No seedy looking places but just hassle from the minute you enter- went to 5 bars same problem, propositioned every time.
Room is very basic- told it was a superior room because it had x2 double beds. Beds very firm and uncomfortable and room had very small insect infestation by mirror. The room includes a cupboard, themeless decor but clean, a kettle but right in the heart of 'Ants villa" so was not that encouraged to use and old style fat TV- many satellite channels such as HBO and National geo etc.. plugs are all by this area - 3 in total. A fridge with a mini bar but only drinks. There is a shower & toilet with basic soap and shampoo sachets- although they did provide brand new toothbrushes sealed in packets. Toilet doesn't flush well. Saw bugs in the bathroom. A/C is restricted to one side of room- not very efficient and lights are all rather simple. There is no SAFE which concerned me from previous review.
Staff were friendly enough from reception with smooth check-in/out & restaurant staff were ok.Spoke English well. They provide hotel to MNL airport transfer at six hundred peso.
WIFI is available but is not constant kept sort of coming and going now and then- but possibly my mac rather than their issue. Had breakfast (as included in room rate) in which you get 3 choices - American (bacon or ham or hot dogs with eggs and 4 slices of toast with jam, mango/oJ/Apple juice with coffee or tea) - had this and was very nice, they also do a pancakes and fruit plate instead.
Overall was forced to stay at this hotel because the Best Western next door overbooked my room even tho I paid for it and only assisted me with this hotel- which is not close to the level of Best Western. I wouldn't stay here again because the room was not comfortable and a little infested. However food was good for breakfast and staff are honestly really nice.
