I stayed here for a night only. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy my stay here at all.
The room cost us Php1,200.00 per night (two beds) which is not bad (cheap actually). However, it was not value for money. The bed was smaller than the usual single hotel bed, hardly any room to stretch. The pillow was the biggest disappointment of all since there was only one, and the size of it... well, it was the probably the smallest pillow in the world as it was half the size of a normal pillow. Since a pillow is my best friend when sleeping, I woke up with body aches and a headache.
The room was very clean though, as the hotel is new. It was tiny, but to be fair, it was clean. The room was equipped with BIG cabinets, which is definitely a plus. The bathroom was also very clean and... well-planned? The room swings in to the bathroom and there's only literally a half-inch space between the door when swung and the toilet seat! No toiletries included... you need to buy shampoo at the front desk.
There's no writing table or a chair in the room so don't expect to get any work done, unless you plan to work in bed.
The light bulb in the bathroom was not working and at 6am, I called front service to have it fixed. They told me that the maintenance people were coming at 8am... and I was like, do you expect me to shower in the dark? Weird for a hotel to not have 24-hour housekeeping service. Good thing they thought to have their security guard change the bulb.
Seriously, this is way too basic for me. This made me resolve not to save on accommodations when traveling. What I saved from the cheap room rate, I will need to spend on a massage.
And no, this is not located at the heart of the city. So don't expect walking to a mall. You will need to take cabs to go anywhere.
