This hotel had everything what I do require from a good budget hotel. It was well mainained, newly built/refurbished with very efficient staff. We felt really safe there, rooms were really tidy, having comfortable beds, small LCD TV with DVD player (which is not an usual standard for this type of accomodation). I have really appreciated especially the tidiness of the bathroom that was in general very nice, with hot water power shower. I have also appreciated that the room was really quite as regards the noise outside the street (I guess it has double-glassed window) and from neighbooring rooms either (it was obvious that the management cares a lot about qietness ot the hotel itself in order to make the guest´s stay more relaxing.
Breakfast was also really great, we had enjoyed big variety of meals, and every one was prepared quickly and was really delicious, especially the omelette and the toasts.
Its position is very convenient. Take an taxi and you can be in 10 minutes at Makati, or in 15 minutes at Malate (Roxas blvd. or Intramuros). 200 metres walking distance, there is an Watsons shopping mall which has plenty of restaurants and the supermarket. The hotel itself is located in a quiet and street.
There is another one point, that is worth mentioning. The communication with the hotel staff during the booking was really easy and they were really helpful. I also appreciate the web design, and booking conditions that made booking through it veary easy.
There are only two negative points regarding this hotel. Although, it is centrally located, it is really hard for most taxidrivers to find it (I had to constantny use my own GPS to show them a way ;-). Second bad point is, that every one of us had really big problems to pay via our mastercard/visa cards. Hotel is probably equipped with some older card readers (or software) that could not have accepted our cards. So the hotel staff did not let us go to our rooms until we provided the payment (we were really exhaused and it took us maybe one hour to solve this). Unnecessarily suspicious personnel may appear offending to someone... Also, they did not registered the reservation of the third room, so we needed to wait even longer to solve this, till we reached our rooms... this is in opposition of what the management pretends that is taking care about - the relaxing stay of their guests!!!!
But if you asked me, whether I wouls stay here again, my answer would be definitely yes!!! I I would even not bother myself sonsidering other options!!!
