To be honest, I was struggling to rate this hotel. I find urban Manila hotels very poor value for money in general by South East Asian standards; one needs to spend ~ USD 100 per night to get anything of a reasonable standard at all. The Citystate Tower Hotel is better than some in that it is not such a big waste of money; but that doesn't make it great either.
It is conveniently located in Ermita - lots of nightlife, shops and restaurants around this area. But it's a bit of a slum too (isn't all of Manila?). The lobby service is good and you get 1 free hour per day of wifi. Breakfast is included and overall it is quite cheap for central Manila. It's a big hotel with lifts.
On the down side, the rooms decor comes from the 1980s, the air-con is so old it sounds like an aircraft taking off, the soap holder is hanging off the wall; you know the scene, I'm sure.
So to summarise, this hotel is better value than any ~PHP 3,000 per night place I have found (cos it is same standard and cheaper), but little better than any ~PHP 1,500 per night place.
