“Ermita and Robinson and Embassy Convenience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Right off Mabini street, you have a hotel tucked away amidst the bustle. Staff are friendly and proficient. Rooms are nice but the wait for the elevator could be a bit slow. Very reasonable rates. Paid "one nine" a night. Stayed here a total of 12 nights.

Pros:
Cheap mini bar (reasonable) and its also stocked
Hot water
Easy to get a Cab
Walk to Robinsons, 7/11, Embassy, etc
Haven't stayed after the re model, but Im glad they are up keeping it
Sfaff

Cons:
Water either too hot or too cold
SUPER mini soaps!
Towels and sheets very thin
No blankets




No Parking

Room Tip: Safe place if you are on a budget

If you do not have a lot of money to spend and can leave with a couple of inconvenience, this might be the place for you.
We stayed over 1 or 2 nights at a time in between trek in Philippines, so we could easily lived with the noisy surrounding or the leaky shower or the absence of seat on the toilet.
I would not have stayed there for a week.
Price was very cheap though.

On my way from Sabangm after a nice stay and lot of diving Hotel Frendy recomanded in Sabang was perfect for my last days in Philipinnes; the bus stopped in front of Hotel! check in was fast and the staff very very helpfull; in spite of the fact that the windows were facing the street..no noise! they would have changed the room if I was disturbed-they said! nice bathrooms, everything you need, very very clean.not even 5 min from the hotel there is a mega big mall Robinson, good place for shopping and eating.!! I hope to visit them again next year.

room clean and quite roomy for 1600 pesos per night, but had problems w/ lighting.. ref not working but there are beverages inside like juice and mineral water.. dim lights only from desk lamps.. hot water in sink not working sometimes especially early in the morning. aircon very old, noisy and had broken vents.. aircon directly in front of the bed so sleeping can be a problem because of the noise and can get really cold since thermostat seems to be broken also.. nice staff at the coffee shop.. we were not accompanied to the room by any staff and had to find it on our own.. receptionist not very helpful.. bathroom had towels and soap.. bedsheets were old and had stains but seemed clean.. food is ok ..
website not working and had to communicate by email only..

  • Liked — roomy and clean, television
  • Disliked — broken aircon, poor service
