We had one night to spend in Manila before an excursion elsewhere in Philippines. Our travel agency chose White Knight Intramuros for its value. We enjoyed local ambiance, a quality stay, and a fine location.
White Knight Intramuros is located in tourist friendly old town Manila. It is billed as a budget hotel with rooms starting at 1750 peso per person [ approx. $80 for a double]. The property seemed better than a big city tourist zone budget hotel because of the service level and the quaintness. The hotel is in an authentic old building retrofitted with modern amenities including air conditioning and internet.. It has a solid feel. The loby was small, but there were quaint inner courtyards and a welcoming coffee shop. Upstairs there were wide stairways and hallways. There is no elevator so porters had to carry our bags to our 3rd floor room. Every night a guitar player provided music in one of the courtyards. There was some street noise early in the evening, but we had no problem sleeping.
Our room was clean except for a few scraps accidently left in one corner. The linens were nice and the beds were comfortable. Our room had adequate furnishings and lots of space. Upon first use, the bathroom toilet plugged. Repairmen were there in less than 10 minutes. The bathroom had a few sewer odors but was otherwise nicely tiled, clean, and free of mold. The maids hay have been interrupted while getting our room ready because there was a dust rag and a burned out light bulb left in the room, just one coffee cup, and no hand towels.
The hotel has good internet with a fast solid connection.
The staff spoke good English and there was a constant attitude of “hello, may I help you”. We had reserved a double room yet the hotel placed us in a room with two twin beds. Once again they accommodated by pushing the beds together. We asked to store luggage for 10 days while we toured and our request was accommodated cheerfully. The one exception to staff excellence was with checkin. The front desk clerk could not seem to get things right – from room type, number of nights, and wireless code.
The included breakfast was cooked to order. They offered substantial menu of eggs, bacon, waffles, pancakes, coffee, juice, fruit, etc. Service was great.
