We chose this hotel over the standard chain luxury hotels in the nearby business districts because I wanted to see local history for our first trip to Manila. We were not disappointed! This place is a gem! At 112 years old you really feel like you've stepped back in time. The hotel is apparently a favorite venue for weddings and I can see why.
It's a great value for the price and is within walking distance to the Intramuros district. They also have a free shuttle to nearby museums and shopping. The pool is newly remodeled and there are several very nice restaurants on the property. WiFi is fast and FREE. The memory foam mattress felt like ours at home. Bathrooms are large and very clean. Nice sheets, towels and robes. yes there are a few things here or there that needs a tiny bit of TLC but not surprising given the age of the hotel.
GO TO THE SPA! it's amazing. We both had a great massage and facial at 1/3 of the cost back in the US with amazing service. I'd come back to Manila just to go to this spa.
