“Wonderful Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Each time i stay at this hotel i find it so very accommodating. I enjoy the staff the most, but the rooms are clean and comfortable also. The kitchen help in cafe is always ready to help in addition to preparing delicious food. Jhun Olinares has been especially helpful to me. I am glad this hotel finds quality employees like Jhun to help run their kitchen. I always look forward to staying in this hotel each trip i am in the Philippines.

This hotel is super close to st. lukes hospital for medical examination. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are super clean. Love the big tv, the hot rain shower, western toilet w spray AND wifi that actually works very fast! I always had a parking spot. Easy to find hotel. Cost about 120 peso for taxi to super mall Asia. The food needs to be improved. The filipino dishes might be sufficient but the international american dishes need improvements. I would gladly spend 100-200 more peso for a better american meal. Make sure if u dont smoke to reserve non-smoking. It was my fault i didnt check that and the room was very smelly. And no just spraying fabreeze on everything just adds more smells that made me sick. The smell is not any worse that a normal smoking room. I opened the windows and blasted the a/c helped me survive the 2 nights stay.

I like the room is stayed in. It's not so big but i am specifically impressed with the details. Actually you wouldn't appreciate the hotel until you get inside the room because from the outside, to the reception until the corridors it's nothing special. The buffet breakfast is not so generous but it's more than enough. Staff are also attentive and professional. Although it could be a bit loud during the day...Would love to stay here again.

I stayed there in 2011, so this was my second stay. This time was in room 310, which was nicer and more quiet than the room I stayed in previously. The cable TV had plenty of choices, food was good, staff were friendly. The bathroom was a reasonable size with hot water and a bidet hose attachment to the toilet, but as is common place in many hotels, very little shelving to put one's toiletries. Cupboard space in the room was adequate.
Centrally located and about 45-60 mins from the airport depending on traffic, I would stay there again.

Really not bad for the price that you pay. The rooms are clean and tidy. The staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating (Rea from front desk made sure all our requests were accommodated). Location is very convenient too with 7/11 just around the corner and Jollibee & Mang Inasal infront. Their breakfast buffet is very homey and filling. Pretty satisfied with our stay here. They even gave us a discount on the rooms depending on how many nights u stay ;)

i checked a lot of reviews and actually spoke to a few travelers who frequented this hotel when in manila. before i booked, the cost is reasonable for the accommodations, close to the US embassy as i had business there. and close to many other locations.. restaurant serves good food has room service til 11pm i stayed there with my new wife,June 14- 18 and the 27th and 28th. steve our waiter in the restaurant the last 2 nights i was there, really took care of us as my wife was really wanting some good local dishes. they serve a good combination of international food and Filipino food. rooms are clean the staff is helpful and the drivers will get you around as needed, Gherry, one of the hotel drivers was very helpful in getting us around... which is not an easy task in manila .

Room Tip: the rooms on the 4th floor seem to have the king size bed for the same money.
