Ok, I honestly have not visited this hotel, however, my wife has stayed at this hotel twice in 2011. She was my fiancé then and needed to travel to Manila for her medical exam at St. Luke’s Hospital and for her interview at the U.S. Embassy. I booked her and her aunt, who accompanied her, both times at this hotel. After reviewing several on-line maps of the area, I believed this hotel is in the perfect spot to walk to both locations. I really liked the fact that I was able to reserve the room through their website and pay for the room using the PayPal link within their website. The confirmation voucher was emailed to me very quickly and all other correspondence from the hotel was always very fast by email. I added a few photos of their room that my wife took with her phone, but she says that she took photos the next morning and not upon arrival......so it looks messy!
I interviewed my wife regarding the following details:
Security: She stated that there was an attendant outside the hotel to meet and greet arriving guests.
Room Service: Room service was available, but they did not order anything.
Breakfast Buffet: The breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious with mostly all Filipino food.
Room Safe: There was no room safe.
Pool: No pool at this hotel.
Taxi Service: Taxis were always available for hire by just stepping out front and walking a short distance down the street. But sometimes you could catch one right out front.
Pros: The perfect location for attending your exam at St. Luke’s and for your U.S. Embassy interview. Also, Robinson’s Mall is a short distance away. And Mall of Asia is also a short distance by taxi. My Wife and her Aunt both state that they would gladly stay there again. Cons: She only stated that the hallways seemed darker than most other hotels and should have been more well lit.
