“Warning!!! Theft from the safety deposit box in the guest room”
Reviewed March 12, 2010

The Inn is located at the end of Del Pilar in Ermita, therefore you can reach most of the Shopping (Robinson Mall) and Nightlife on foot in a matter of minutes. Access to the guestrooms is through the pub on the ground level. Rooms are spread out on the 1st and 2nd floor.

The pub offers the usual pub grub of Burgers, Wings, Pizza, Chili etc. I tried the Chili, but the sauce was mainly Ketchup based and seemed to be made of 50% pure sugar. The live band has been very good as all the local bands and played a nice mixture of classics and actual songs. Beer prices have been reasonable.

The room - costing Peso 1.599,- was overpriced, considering the room size, although it has been reasonable clean. It has been facing the main road, so you effecively hear every Jeepney accelerating down Del Pilar Rd. There are definetely no quite nights at this place.

There has been a big warning sign "Not to become the next victim" of theft in the rooms. So I picked up the key to the safety deposit box at the reception counter downstairs and deposited my valuables in the room safe.

Bad surprise the next day, when I wanted to check out. Of my EUR 680,- in total EUR 200,- were missing. Of my stash of Peso 25.000 the amount of 10.000,- had been missing. During the night I have been out before, somebody with the spare key or a copy took the money from the safety deposit box.

I brought this to the attention of the Australian Manager, who tried to blame it on the local girls customers tend to bring home for the night. But this has not been the case for me, as I definetely came back alone. I disliked the idea very much, that a serious safety issue was blamed on the people who got cheated at the Slouch Hat Inn and Pub. A non acceptable attitude for a person running a business in the hospitality industry. Running around Manila at night with all your valuables is no option either, so you have to trust the place you are staying at.

Therefore my warning - avoid this place until they got the safety issue fixed. Stealing money from the safety deposit box can only be an inside job and the people at the Slouch Hat Inn and Pub did not seem to care about it.
