I loved this hotel. It is a simple hotel with very good staff and good food. A great little pool area where you can sit and work on your laptop. The rooms were cleaned, the towels fluffy, the bed comfortable, the room spacious enough for two people and maybe a little kid, verandah outside to sit, smoke and work and a restaurant which was always busy. I'm from Kuala Lumpur and for the same price you cannot get this in my town. The hotel is walking distance to malls, hospitals, some bars and the Taft Avenue street where lots of bars, restaurants, hotels, casinos which are catered for the Asian tourists from Japan, Korea, Taiwan etc. It is about 20 minutes by taxi to the Metro Manila area where Makati and the expats hang out at high class malls. The hotel is also very close to the national museum, the old Manila (intramuros), Rizal Park/Shrine and Fort Santiago. If you are someone looking to be walking distance to the party areas where the expats hang out, this is not the place to stay. Go to Makati or Quezon City. If you want to be a real traveller and want to see and hang with locals, this is the hotel to be at. My local friend and other expats told me this hotel is too far from the Makati areas. What it means is it takes about 20 minutes by taxi where traffic is light and apparently could take about 3 hours if traffic is bad. I was lucky there was hardly traffic all times when I went there. I find it funny people living in Manila measure distance by traffic. In my KL town, it can take up to 45 minutes to get to downtown KL to party from the burbs. All in all, the hotel is a good place to stay except for location if you are looking at the expat party places. Saw a mixed crowd here, families, old white guys with their "girlfriends", me the single Asian traveller, Filipino families etc. Worth it absolutely!
