The staff here is extremely friendly and helpful. I walked in without a reservation (having left my resort hotel room elsewhere in town due to limitations there.) They worked out a room that I could stay in all week without switching. The room rate was really great. The downside for me was that the room available was the "noisy one" (Room 19) The staff warned me up front that the nightclub noise might be a problem in this room, but I opted to take it anyway. It is noisy, but I live in a first-floor apartment in New York City with the fire station two blocks away, so I am used to sleeping through noise. (I was amazed that the drummer downstairs could beat that bass drum like that for hours. That was about the only noise I could hear.) The room was clean and fairly well maintained, although a bit small for a room intended for three people. There were NO dresser drawers, which is really a problem for anyone with a long stay. Since I was alone, I had to use the single bed as a luggage stand and live out of my suitcase for 5 days. I don't think the room would work for three people. The room comes with a free breakfast; the breakfast is good, but scarce by western standards. You can always order extras at additional cost, but the food is so inexpensive it's not a big deal. WiFi worked well in the room and was very reliable. The lobby is open 24 hours, and there is a security guard on duty in the lobby at all times. Being right on Rizal Boulevard is a big plus for this hotel, and being right next door to the very popular Why Not restaurant, bar, nightclub is very convenient.
