“old new hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Breakfast is included but only filipino breakfast available. My room was small and smelled cigaret smoke. Not so good when you enter the room. Good point: new aircon system, not the usual noisy system used in the philippines.

Third time to stay here because was kinda okay with it during the first 2 stays. This time, I think the hotel has become tackier compared to before. Tacky in a sense that although the rooms are relatively clean, they have a serious problem with tiny roaches. You can find them crawling out of nowhere, and with that comes a very peculiar roach-smell. Their a/c unit are worth to be thrown out. In almost all rooms that I have stayed in this hotel, there's really a problem with the a/c. Sometimes it doesn't turn on, sometimes there's water leaking out, and the latest, it throws out tiny specks of ice. Hideous. The sheets before were okay, but now, i'm observing that there are map stains of i don't know what on them. It scares me to sleep on that stained area because there might be herpes on it, i cover it with the blanket instead. Since this is a cheap hotel in the middle of a red-light district, you can expect that many guests go here to just do their thing and leave their secretions behind. I don't have problems with the price because it is really cheap, but if paying less means being disappointed or getting herpes, i'd rather pay a bit more and find another better and cleaner place than suffer here. I hope the management will do something to totally clean the place and change the sheets totally, because honestly, I love it here because of the location, but if it's not worth it, it's better to be somewhere else.

I booked via hotel web and was given 15% discount coz it was 5 days prior to may stay plus its free-breakfast for 2! It was the tastiest beef-tapa and garlic rice so yummy. the rooftop is cozy we had some bottle of beer there. the room is quite small with no window but its okay. clean n spacious bathroom and the staff are very attentive to our needs. fast service.

OK place to stay if your on a budget.. comfortable rooms even though they don't have any windows plus you really can't move around.. The light switch are on the bedside table.. They don't provide channel listing.. Parking space is ok but there's a sign saying "park at your own risk" - scary right? .. the sheets are thin.. they provide free soaps.. toothpaste and toothbrush

booked this hotel online as i had seen it when staying at the adjacent citystate tower hotel and thought i would try it, there was quite a bit of confusion when i arrived as they tried to find my booking, the lobby area is very pleasant, far more pleasant than the rooms which are a bit dark and claustrophobic and very basic, bathroom is not the cleanest but everything worked, there is an adequate breakfast included which is served on the pleasant roof terrace, very nice for a bit of morning sun, i do not think i would stay here again unless i was a bit low funds but the price is reasonable for Manila, where hotels seem to be increasing in price every month, location is very good on Mabini St and very close to Robinsons place and the US embassy.

Room Tip: maybe a more expensive room might be a better option.

The hotel is in good location and our room was clean. However, the rooms are small which is just really for people who will just stay to sleep and be out the whole day. The bathroom was also clean. I was just really annoyed during our breakfast the second day because it took about 45 mins for them to serve! such a waste of time! they only have few staffs and the restaurant was too small for such a hotel.
