I arrived in Manila on a Friday evening during rush hour and it took over 2 hours to get to get to the hotel in a taxi.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from both Megamall and Robinson's Galleria - both huge malls.
The lobby is quite nice but the check-in was painfully slow and I was given a real key (rather than keycard) for the room. There are only 3 lifts serving over 30 floors and there can sometimes be a wait for a lift.
Some people live in the Malayan Plaza and others rent out their rooms for the hotel. The room was very big, with a separate living space and bedroom. However the furniture and curtains were very old-fashioned and in serious need of updating, especially the drimy curtains.
The bathroom was OK with very little amenities.
There is wifi in the room and in the restaurant but it is only valid for one appliance at a time which is really frustrating when there are two people in the room! They charge an additiional 200 Pesos per day for another logon code.
Breakfast come with the room and is a small buffet on the 33rd floor serving standard foods and cooking fresh eggs. It's nothing special but Ok if you are hungry.
The pool was also on this floor and seemd ok but hardly any sun loungers there to sit out.
The service was a bit strange with twice someone coming by to to a room check. The second time was at 9am and woke me up to do a check and deliver a newspaper. Admittedly I forgot to put on the Do Not Disturb sign.
Overall, it's not a bad place to stay for locarion.
