2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

This hotel is located across from Paco Park, in a relatively quiet area of central Manila, but within walking distance of Malate.

Our room was reasonably spacious and came with basic amenities like cable TV and a mini-bar. It did not have hot water, however, as attempts by all 3 of us could not get the water heater to work. We were on the lookout for the rats and roaches mentioned in many other reviews, but we didn't meet them.

The public areas of the hotel are fine in a beaten up 80s sort of way.

The hotel staff were not at all friendly, and wanted us to sign a sales slip for the credit card authorization that hotels routinely do. They didn't insist after we refused, explaining that we had no problem with the authorization but we wouldn't sign a sales slip for it. Equally oddly, I can't recall ever being asked to sign an inventory of a hotels rooms contents before - right down to the sheets.

We paid under $10 for this stay by using an expedia voucher. The hotels walk in rate is slightly over $50.00. For that price, a traveler could do far better.
