the Southern Cross has seen better days however the staff are very friendly and helpful, they have a restaurant/bar downstairs and they operate a shuttle bus to Angeles City and Subic Bay ... my room was ok, the air-con and fan worked, the water was hot, the bed was firm, the linen was ok and housekeeping made up my room...

We stayed here with out two children in March 2016. The rooms were clean and it was well located across from the police station, making it a quiet area. The lady at reception was very pleasant and helpful. We would stay here again.

Handy location if you are catching the bus to Angeles city.. rooms are very basic, staff are friendly and helpful, there is a bar adjoining the hotel which also serves food.. if i was to spend more than one night in manila I would probably stay in another part of manila..

Got off to a good start when my pickup was cancelled while I was on the plane so had to spend half an hour walking around before getting my own way there. Then I arrive to a small pokey hot room with poorly working air conditioning and a noisy fan. The bed is just a plank of wood with a... More

Was good, great bar friendly, went very sad but now painting rooms trying to get things up and running again. Good when the lift is working again and the Wifi does more than the bar. So now good if you get a booking on the first floor only.

Maybe a 3 star. Not very lucky with the room. Air con broken, land line broken, empty minibar, old, not very large, but clean, good wifi. Asked staff to check the air con or change room, but nothing happened. The big fan on the wall worked, tho. Staff a bit confused and did not know how to charge credit cards.... More

The room was OK and so was the bar. Location OK since we was going to Olongapo and the hotel has a bus service to Angeles and Baloy beach. Had some problems with the booking but it worked out after 30 min.

An older hotel near the US Embassy and Roxas/UN Ave intersection. Prices are low for the area (1,600) and the rooms are clean enough that I never feel uncomfortable. It can be loud if your room is too near the bar on the ground floor. The hotel offers tourist shuttles, so it is very cinvenient. The staff is great, the... More

Stayed in room 501 for one night this room had been refurbished and in my opinion done very well indeed. With being at the front of the hotel there was some road noise through out the night which would annoy some guests. A new a/c unit had been fitted and was excellent hardly any noise from it at all.
