2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2010

We had stayed at this hotel twice in previous years and been mostly satisfied--only quirk so far was the hotel's insistence in charging us for extra pillows in a 2-pillow, 1-bedroom deluxe apartment that we had booked for 2 adults and 1 child.

Early this month, we needed a hotel at short notice and didn't think twice about booking Malayan based on our previous stays. This time, no 1-br apartment was available but we didn't mind the deluxe studio we were assigned, more so since its interiors were impressive enough for our design-conscious 4 year old.

The night passed without incident, we had a good night's rest until...upon waking up the next morning, I was greeted by the sight of a cockroach airing itself in front of the room airconditioner. I promptly threw the nearest heavy object (a phone book) I could find at it, which woke up my husband who grumpily went to the toilet to relieve himself. To my confusion, I heard the shower running instead of the toilet flushing--turns out that he found another roach strutting in the shower stall and was trying to kill it with hot water from the shower. Fully awake and totally disgusted by then, we went back to the room to pack our things and check out immediately. There, a third roach awaited us, standing guard by our luggage. We broke the record waking up our child, getting dressed, packing and hauling child and luggage down to reception pronto, but not before noticing small unidentifiable bugs crawling on the wall.

Lesson learned: in warm countries such as the Philippines, trust only an established international hotel if you don't want to be kept awake wondering if you are sharing your room with freeloading creepy crawlies. I know this is a gross generalization but seriously, have you ever seen a roach at the Shangri-La or Oakwood? These hotels may have standard and therefore boring hotel room decor, but I would put hygiene over fancy interiors anytime.

Even Pinoys are treated like guests here... This is not normal everywhere in Ortigas.
