After you have passed the Bomb detection dogs, metal detectors and bag screening you enter a truly amazing hotel! The rooms are very clean and have a reasonable size and quite modern. Wifi is free for 1 device in your room for 3 hours a day and free in the lobby. The restaurant is a bit on the expensive side compared to outside restaurants. The location of the hotel is nothing amazing, there is a Starbucks, Pancake House and Italian Shop next door there are also some mini-marts. The hotel is near the U.S embassy and a taxi drive from Intramuros the more up-market part of Manila. The area the hotel is in (Malate) is your average Asian City a bit grungy with some beggars around but the area is quite safe (there are armed guards everywhere!) The hotel is also a 5 minute walk to Robinson's Mall (A western mall) but be aware when walking there as the are some pickpockets along the route. The pool in the hotel is fine.
Overall this hotel is a Haven in the middle of Manila!
