“You can do better!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2009

My stay here was cut short due to a last minute cancellation of a business meeting, but I noticed that:

1.Common places are kept clean at all times however rooms are not regularly cleaned. During my 2 night stay, the housekeeping didn't replenish the toiletries ( towel, shampoo&soap) nor did they kept the beddings, in short they didn't bother at all ( a field day for the ANTS). No trash can. No pail and dipper ( timba't tabo);

2. Internet wifi connection is also intermittent during my stay, its free of charge though;

3.Front desk is very attentive and readily replied to my query and room reservation and;

4.If and when Item 1 has been properly addressed, I'll stay here again, after all it is ACCESSIBLE and AFFORDABLE.

Very very basic, this is my impression.
Nothing gorgeous, nothing lousy.
The room I stayed is equipped fully such as A/C, desk, chair, TV(lots of channel !), towel, toilet paper and hot shower.
700 pesos per night, I don’t know if it is single bed or double(not spacious), but it is a good deal for the location and service.
You can choose hot shower or cold water shower(cheaper room).

There is 24 hour restaurant(café?) and baggage storage, which might be convenient.
They will give you boiled water for 10 pesos if you want to eat Cup Noodle.
Credit card is also acceptable with extra charge of 5%.

Location is not bad,(close to YMCA) as it is on back street, you won’t be bothered by traffic. It is quiet.
There are Starbucks coffee, McDonald, Julibee(local Hamburger) and local food stalls within 5 minutes walking. You should take a taxi if you want to go to Ayala shopping mall, but it is about 60 pesos.
If you are on tight budget and want to stay in central area, I would recommend this place, but you might see ants in your room.

Each time I inquired, their response was very quick. All staffs are friendly and English Speaking.

FYI : I enjoyed AyalaMall :-) Food choice is plentiful

  • Liked — reasonable price, friendliness
  • Disliked — not daily bed making, ants
