“Very disappointing place”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

The view below mine is very accurate. I only wish I had read it before staying there. We booked 3 nights which was the minimum booking accepted. On arrival we knew we would not be staying here for same reasons described below.

The view from the apartments is quite nice but the place has nothing else going for it. We now moved to the Hotel Elizibeth at the other ( and better) part of town near the botanical gardens.

would not recommend staying in this place at all. It's a shame really because from the outside and on the internet they look deceivingly nice!!

Reviewed July 11, 2011

This hotel location is very hard to find by all taxi drivers, even when you give them the full address, no one knows about it. When we checked in we discovered we are the only residents in this complex of 30 units more or less. Security guards at the entrance with big guns, made us feel in-secure. Upon arrival, the guy in charge ask us to pay upfront in cach for day one $3500 pesos for our 2 bedrooms apartment before even we finished unloading our luggage, then we discovered there is no toilet papers and towels, when we asked for these items, we are told to pay extra for these items,20 pesos per towel and same for the toilet paper, very cheaptowels. The interior of the unit looked dirty, the walls, trims, kitchen cabinets all dirty and stained, and we saw a cockroach during dinner under the dining table, also the floor is not clean. It appears to me , cheap and ignorant investors own these units and thought of going into the hoteling business with knowlege or skills.

rooms are very small barely fits the bed with one window looking into the inside of the building, not the outside,so it is not counted as a window!, the second bedroom, had no window at all, the unit had no ac and no fan either, the washroom is extremely small with no ventilation fan, so the humidaty and moisture have no where to escape, it is a safety problem with this washroom, some one could get electrical shock.

We had to keep the sliding door open during the night to get some air, but felt totally not secure and had terrible nightmares, bottom line we could not sleep more than few restless hours. This accomodation was rated 4 stars, god knows how!!! Frankly I am a frequent traveller and vacation 2-3 times per year, and would not rate this accomodation more than one star only, and would not pay more 700 pesos per day or $20 only.
Despie that I had booking for 3 days, I had to leave and find another hotel after day one.

Glad that I have done so, landed at Gold Pine Hotel in the downtown area very close to the SM Mall, and finally felt I am back in civilization, this is a 10 times better hotel despite it is rated lower than 4 stars and cheaper, the rating system means nothing and often abused by hotels. Very fancy hotel that is comparable to north america 3 stars.
