We were in Manila for business and asked our travel agent to find somewhere convenient for our meeting at short notice. They suggested this place and, based on a quick scan of the website it looked just about passable. However, the reality is very different from the images on the site. Our room was incredibly basic and very dated. The air con unit was ancient and noisy, far too noisy to sleep with it on. But when we turned it off, we could still hear the air con units rattling in all the neighboring rooms. Our view was of wall, pipes and electric cables a foot from our window. The bedding and bathroom was clean, but the towels were old and 1000 wash grey, the shower was a dribble, the beds were hard and the walls were grubby. There didn't appear to be good fire escape routes or smoke alarms, and the combination of ancient electrics and wooden building make it feel like an H&S hazard. We will be asking our agent not to recommend this to others.
