Upon arrival at the front desk, the staff who were eating lunch in the small back room behind the front desk simply stared at us. No one bothered to approach us however when a Western guest approached the front desk one of the staff immediately came to assist him. I guess the staff give priority to Western guests for the bigger tips. This hotel does not have an elevator so guests with 20 kgs baggage or more will have to request for the services of their staff in bringing their stuff up to the rooms and down again upon check-out. Because the location is in the middle of Intramuros, one will have to walk a short distance to get to the taxis. I am a short Filipino so the inclined ceiling does not bother me however what the room needs is more water coming out from the shower. The toilet in our room was stuck and would not flush properly. We had no internet in our room.
Being on a budget, we asked where the nearest fastfood outlets but were referred instead to the restaurant in the hotel which is 3 times more expensive than the fastfood. If you would like to pay additional because of a late afternoon outbound flight, you will be asked to pay for one whole day. Booking in this hotel was a mistake.
