My wife and I had an overnight stay there yesterday which was actually our 4th or 5th time to book there. Let's breakdown the hotel ;)
We always book the deluxe room with queen bed. The room is spacious and functional. It has a table for small business materials (laptops, papers etc.). A small table with 2 chairs if you want to have your food serviced to your room. 2 side tables - where I put the remote and all small electronics ;) a sofa and coffee table which accommodated our bags actually (always hehe). The only downside: the view from your room :( It's not a high rise bldg so your view will be limited. Don't expect too much people! This is a 3-star hotel to remind you ;) They have in-room safe but it's quite small. Even my notebook didn't fit there so I just took it down with us when we had a meal at the Picasso - they offer free wi-fi at the resto and lobby. I'm not sure if the charge you for internet access in your room.
Big enough not to be hit by the door when you are seated on the "throne". Not too fancy, not modern as a matter of fact but again, functional. Available upon request: iron and board, wall socket adapters. They have hair dryers in the bathroom so no excuse for bad hair day :D
A bit small really but it has never been cramped when we go there. They have a number of seats to rest your buns while waiting to be checked-in/out.
I've never been disappointed with their food (read: NEVER!). For snack after checking in, we had the pancit bihon (Chinese stir-fried noodles) which can serve 2 and costs 150 pesos (approx. USD3.50) and chix burger for PhP99 which comes with a drink and macaroni salad (approx. USD2.30). For dinner we had the grilled squid and glazed pork loin.
Don't miss the chef's special! You will have 4 sets to choose from and it includes (drum roll please): soup, salad, main course and dessert! It's quite a steal actually. It only costs PhP295 (approx. USD6.80).
Buffet breakfast served until 10 am. Decent selection. They have fish, tocino (cured pork), eggplant omelet, salad, sausage, soup, breads, cereals, fruits and fried eggs (upon request - omelet or plain). They have dimsum, coffee and fruit juice stations.
If you are quite picky on your food, there is a convenience store (7-11) and fast foods nearby (Wendy's, McDonald's and Jollibee). If you are the food adventure type, you can try local food in the market also nearby.
Close to the MRT station and main road (EDSA Ave.) If you will be taking a cab, I would suggest dropping off at EDSA. Otherwise, you might find it difficult to find a U-Turn spot so you could drop off at the hotel. But, taxi drivers are sometimes resourceful so make sure before taking a taxi, ask him if he knows where the hotel is. If you have your own ride, hmm... it'll be quite a challenge if you are not from the metro. Don't be shy to ask for directions ;)
Their best asset!!! Always smiling (not the annoying type ok?), they always greet you when they pass by and prompt to your requests!
They don't have a pool, they don't have a gym. The place is good for those short stay or if you plan to have a long stay but would be busy taking side trips/tours in the metro during the day.
I'll give this hotel 5/5 stars for overall for cleanliness and quality of service :) enjoy your stay :D
