The imposing and elegant looks that welcome a guest on arrival belie the truth about the hotel. The grand decor ends at the lobby. The young guard is helpful with luggage and is not one that assumes to receive a tip. The rooms are spartan, so much like empty apartments. Sheets at least are clean. Unluckily, the toilet in our room was smelly, suspiciously from sewage whose foul odor seeps in from the bell traps. The water is absolutely disgusting and reminds one of the piped hard water that one uses in substandard beach resorts. In fact, guests are warned not to drink. Much less use for brushing. There is nothing fancy to see for kilometers around so first timers will find the place a huge disappointment despite the central downtown location because they will be at the mercy of taxi drivers. Thankfully, the real downtown where the malls and restaurants are can be reached by jeepney. On foot, it is a long hot trek and the street does not look friendly, especially at night. The lobby cafe is good for waiting but the coffee is better enjoyed elsewhere.
