Based on previous bad reviews about this hotel, I had the worst expectations. However, my experience wasn't bad. It went quite well, actually.
Given, the hotel isn't of 5-Star quality, but for the price it is worth it. We managed to get the 1088+VAT rate booked online. The lobby was simple, in yellow and green theme. It emitted a sort of friendly and casual attitude. The Front desk was quick to check us in. They gave us a Pasig City view. We were quite fortunate 'coz i heard that there were inner rooms with no windows.
When we got to our floor the common area had no aircon but the floor was quite cool nevertheless. There were also helpful signs to point to the rooms because apparently there was more than 100 rooms per floor. The room came out to be very simple, neat and clean although it cannot accomodate more than 3 people and still have space. Looks more like a studio appartment. They provided towels and toiletries but ordering more would cost you a P100 each. Good thing I packed an extra towel in my bag just in case. There weren't any slippers or toothpaste, but the Front Desk informed me that there were some for sale in the Lobby Shop. Basically, everything you NEED is provided complete with the key card lock for convenience.
A restaurant (Tokyo Cafe) was being contructed beside it and a convenience store (according to the Front Desk). So I guess the place will improve in the coming months.
What I liked about it compared to other hotels in the same price range is its proximity to the mall (Robinsons Forum) and the Boni MRT station. Other hotels I've checked that have relatively the same price aren't so close to these places.
