This is a hotel that is often missed in hotel searches. The hotel name probably does not help. From the name you would think it is a men's only hotel. Going back to the mid 1990's we have stayed at both this hotel and the El Cielito. The hotels are about the same in quality and used to be equally priced. The El Cielito increased it's price and now runs about $20 more expensive. For $40+, the Copa is good value considering you are accross the street from a 5 star hotel (New World Hotel). The Copa is the Asian version of a Super8, Motel 6, etc. The typical mentality persists that can be frustrating if you are not used it. Example, they unplug the water heaters between customers to save electricity, run air conditioners way beyond the useful life, clean out the mini fridge if you say you won't use it, halls are not air conditioned. The negatives are: restaurant is about 14 ft x 14 ft and can seat 13 people. Service varies according to who shows up for work. One of the days, the cook was off sick so there was no food, but they made it up by giving us extra food coupons for free meals. Positives: Friendly staff, close to shopping, underground parking. Keep in mind P300 is a typical days pay (about $6), if you tip like you would in the US, the staff will be more responsive. Don't forget the guard out front that helps you back out onto the street and/or writes down the taxi license plate number for security-safety reasons. This is not a Marriott or a Fairfield Inn, it you make allowance for the cultural differences, you will have an enjoyable and economical stay.
