Leesons Residences
Ranked #7 of 88 Specialty Lodging in Manila
Reviewed June 27, 2012

I recently stayed at leesons for a month and all i can say is that i will never come back again. I fully ratify the person comments about the shortcomings and dishonesty of the management of this "hotel". In fact, the management behaviour dealing with customers´ complaints and concerns about rooms can only be defined as totally disgraceful and dishonest. We got this people here advertising on the net 25 sq m, fully furnitured rooms.....and what you get is a 16 sq m and partially furnitured decaying rooms with no appropiate blinds or curtains. It´s simply amazing how leesons dares to say that a room with a bed, a mini refrigerator, a mini table and ONE chair is a "fully furnitured". The tiny bathroom dont even have a hand basin, so you have to use the kitchen tap to wash your hands or shaving. All rooms facing the street got unberable noise day and night from street traffic, so dont expect to have a peaceful sleep ever. Contrary to what is done in hundreds of similar monthly rate places around Manila, Leesons does not service the room even once a week, so expect to live in a dirty room the whole month. Even the rubbish is not collected. However, the worst thing with Leessons is its management behaviour. The way they deal with contracts are designed to deceive people, the electricity bills are totally inaccurate and false, so you are likely to pay two or three times your real consumption, like it happened to me. A final advice, dont ever lose a door key...if you do they will charge you 20 times the price of a duplicate. Anyway, what else can be say about this place! I definitely will not recommend it even for 200 pesos a day....

First off, I had a hard time looking for the location because I thought the place was just before Remedios Circle coming from Roxas. It was actually past LRT from Roxas. Parking is quite difficult because of the narrow road on its corner. Check-in was OK. Made by the guard on duty since we checked in past 10pm. No receptionist was around. No lifts. 4th floor. Wifi is fast. Room was clean. Bathroom was small but hey, for like a thousand pesos a night, this is A GREAT Deal. Yes, the beddings and towels were so clean. Fragrant too. Ryan, the guard was so helpful when it comes to me parking my car. 100 pesos per hour is the extension rate after 12pm. just be aware of that. Water heater works fine. Will definitely come back again. :)

Location is in the center of everything, just a few minutes walk to the Robinsons Shopping Mall. LRT train is just 1 corner away. Vicinity has 711 and Ministop convenience store. McDonalds & Jollibee just 1 block away.

Room is clean & comfortable. Good for a few days stay. Hot shower, airconditioned, cable tv, daily housekeeping, good enough for the price that i pay.

I recomend this hotel for its value for money and good location. Rooms are well maintained, clean & spacious too. The free wifi is a big plus.

Staffs are friendly & helpful. I will be staying here again soon.

Rooms are nothing fancy but very clean. It has a private toilet & bath with hot & cold shower. Comfortable bed. Daily housekeeping. Just what i really needed. I am a very practical person, thats why i appreciate Leesons Residences, they have very cheap rates and just provide the basic. No extra expenses for what i dont need in a hotel. Nice location too, everything is very near, convenience store, transportation, shopping mall, restaurants, everything is accessible.

Stayed here for 2 weeks, rooms are clean. The maid come everyday to make up room and change towels. The staffs are kind and helpful including the security guard.

There are no fancy decorations inside the room, but only what is enough for a comfortable stay. Clean bed, hot & cold shower, very near transportation and shopping center, maid to clean room everyday. I think its worth what you pay for. Next time around, ill stay here again.

We stayed at Leesons Residences for 3 nights in Manila. I wouldn't recommend staying in Manila at all, to be honest. The place is a hole. However, if you have to bite the bullet and need cheapish accommodation, you can do worse than here. The security guard is friendly but the place isn't serviced that well. There was only one towel in our double room and we had to wait to the next day to get a second. Asking for another pillow resulted in a rebuff - they are thin foam things, but the staff don't appear to have spares. There is no lift and we were on the fifth floor - OK for us, but no good for people with issues climbing lots of stairs. There is no rubbish bin in the room which is crazy, never seen that before. We ended up getting a carrier and just leaving it all in a bag when we left. The area it's in (Malate) isn't the best either, and we didn't feel particularly safe the first night when wandering around, but eased up over the subsequent days.
