Reviewed July 8, 2010

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.

i stayed for two times now on this hotel, and i must say, to give value for money is really what's important to them. On my first stay, i guess its really normal for a hotel to have birth pains, it was kind of hard calling the front desk to the point that i had to go down, the second time around was different though last June 13 i stayed for the second time and well, they really adjusted to that problem. I was able to book the 600 plus rate and well, compared to other hotels, its way cheaper and everything is new and clean! Aircon was cold, bed was fantastic and well the TV(kinda small) but it had cable, so it really makes up for it.

Overall, i think that both my stays were very pleasant and i will definitely stay there again on my next business trip. Hope they put up a branch in CEBU, since im almost always there.

Overall Value: Very Good (If you are very patient and book in advance on-line to get a very good rate-we got ours for PHP650/night, on a twin sharing basis, w/o breakfast)

Tip: Do not just walk-in and expect good rates! The concept of this hotel is for you to book in advance and via on-line. Just like what the other reviewer said, they paid much much more.

Cleanliness:
It can very much improve. Clear signs that it was just recently turned-over by the construction group. Poor attention to details in room and bath cleaning.

COMFORT and CONVENIENCE:
Room and Bath
Bed was good. Pillows are okay. Comforter is okay. Lighting was sufficient. Electric plugs for mobile and laptop charging is available. No WIFI signal. Signal for Globe and Sun Mobile was okay. Reception of TV Cable was good. Silent air-con motor and with accurate and sufficient cooling. In-room safe is available. Size of room is just right, approximately around 18sqm, including toilet and bath.

Parking
We checked in around 4:30pm, enough parking was available. Paid 100 pesos for overnight parking.

Elevator - 18 passenger, but a little bit slow.

Convenience store available. Coffee shop at the lobby/reception area, but offering is VERY limited, and a little pricey. Does not match the concept of the hotel. Laundry and transport service available.

One down side for comfort: no eating inside the room. That's why they did not provide any dining facility (tables and chairs). But this is available on the common/lounge area on our guest room floor.

Nearness to Restaurants/Bars/Grocery/Drug Stores
About 2-3 (slow paced) walk to Robinson's Forum (Mall). Everything you can possibly need is there. From various restaurants to grocery store to drug store etc...etc...

Bus and Train Terminal is about 4 to 5 minutes away.

SAFETY and SECURITY
We felt that it was sufficient. CCTV cameras all over the place. Security personnel are also available.

Fire alarms, smoke detectors, and fire sprinklers are available. Double locking mechanism for rooms. Eye/Door Viewer is not available.

SERVICE
Very average. Limited (It goes with their concept)

This hotel is great if you get your room at the range of PHP750 to PHP1,000. So remember to book way ahead and book on line!

My fiance and I stayed at gohotels for one night last May 2010. I read a very convincing review on the newspaper whilst we were at Subic International Hotel. It was suprising that it was cheap @ 368++ pesos only a night! We've already booked at Mabuhay Manor (We really liked Mabuhay as it is affordable and clean compared to other hotel we checked via web reviews) for our last night in Manila but with the rate offered it was hard to resist.

I informed my fiance that we should try it as pictures shows it is new, moderly furnished and best of all cheap cheap cheap!
And hoping to show him more of Manila as we mostly stayed around Pasay area.

Once we reached there, it was a total shock as the lobby look unfurnished, a mini sari sari store hahaahah! near the lobby for toilettries and clothes hangers?

Anyway, when I went to pay and get a room I was informed that since we DID NOT booked ahead-we have to pay 2700 pesos for a night-a normal rate for any 4-3 star hotel. Apparently, you have to book 3-6 months ahead to avail the "SUPER SAVER RATE" of 368++ pesos hah!

Well, it was okay since its our fault that we didnt booked it earlier. So paid and was escorted to the "room". The elevator was roomy but sloooow hahaha!

The hall was unfurnished compared to what Ive seen on the pictures of it on the newspapers.

Told my fiance "well, its a minimalize style lol" the floor which is composed of how many rooms looked like one of those tenament buildings Ive seen before.

The "ROOM" was amazingly small, though they did inform us that they dont have window room available.

It would'nt be so bad if the room was not so small. It was not even checked if it was clean and ready for occupancy as there are still dirt on the floor from the drilling they did for some fixture on the wall. They did apologize for that, but too late we already checked in.

We wouldnt mind the money spend if we paid 368++ pesos, because it was really worth 368++ pesos. I really felt Claustrophobic with the size of the room. Like a makeshift room just for sleeping and best of all no closets lol! Guess bcoz of the size of the room whre can they fit the closet?

Should have seen teh warning signs when we where still at Subic International Hotel. While we where waiting for our ride to arrive to drop us off Manila. A couple wanting to check in asked to see room first before they go in.

Our advice, check the room before u decide to check in.

And to add cherry on the top- staffs was not friendly and accomodating at all. When we checked out-they say to wait a while and they need to checked if room was intact? With the size of the room - can u blame them lol!
We waited and waited if I didnt get impatient they wouldnt have the decency to inform us we can leave.

Overall, well if ure on a tight budget and need a place just to sleep-well check in at ur own risk!

Surely, some of the other guests had a different experience but ours was an experience alrigth! I wouldnt be bothering to post this if we werent completely dissapointed. Even kept the invoice for proof!
Its too bad we were so dissapointed we didnt think of taking pictures! I really regret that!
Even with the cheap rate when u book 3-6 months ahead lol! Definitely will never return!
(Sogo is better - wink, wink, wink)
