“Over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

This hotel has aged badly, it is over priced for what it offers. The lobby is incredible and these photos will suck you in, but upstairs is a different matter.

The location is good but the rooms are very out dated.
There are better hotels for the same amount of money.
Breakfast is good, although get in early!

Learn the term "Hindi Po" to stop people selling you things like watches or Viagra tablets. It is the polite way of saying no!

This hotel was not worth the money that we paid. The rooms were large but the smell was unbearable at times. A strong moldy musty smell along with cigarettes was extremely overwhelming in the hallways and rooms. As a non-smoker I woke up the next morning feeling as though I smoked a pack of cigarettes! We asked for a room change and were given the same room on a non smoking floor. The pungent cigarette smell was missing but the strong smell of musty moldy carpets was ever present.

The furniture in the rooms are old and outdated. I took off the bed spread as it looked filthy and was unwashed for some time. The bathroom had black mold growing on the ceiling and the wooden fixtures around the mirror were rotting and full of mold. The shower curtain was stained a browny yellow and a row of ants were traveling up the walls.

I also went to use the buisness center and it was locked during advertised open hours. Once I asked to have it opened and then mentioned the charge for internet usage and it was extremely overpriced.

I would strongly recommend that you spend your money somewhere eles.

Knowing that we've travelled all over, I was quite hesitant showing him this hotel where we planned to stay for New Year's Eve (due to work-related reasons). It is quite old already and needs renovation ( though the lobby looks modern). A few days before, I booked the Pavilion Advantage promo which entitled us to a standard room with buffet breakfast and a choice of buffet lunch or dinner FOR TWO. The rate of P4,000 was already a giveaway rate because the free meals alone already cost P4,000 pesos.... so it felt like we were getting the room for free. lol

I would say their buffet selection is ample..it even had seafood, roast beef, sashimi and salmon. The quality of their room notwithstanding, I will still choose this hotel in Manila for its location. Robinsons Mall is just walking distance. I would recommend the hotel outlets Patisserie ( for cheap breakfast fare, if you're not having the buffet) and Rotisserie for good steaks.

I've stayed i this hotel and it was horrible, its a place where you can pick up a lot of prostitutes, the room was very terrible when you open the door it smells like a dead rat, we arrived around midnight and had no choice to move to the other hotel, i did not had a chance to sleep because of the smell they could not move me to a nicer room because the hotel was fully boooked with prostitutes customers i guess, the people were so rude, the food sucks, i would never ever recommend this hotel to anyone even to a poor..
It was like a hotel for pig..what a stinky place..i would never ever look back to this garbage hotel with full of prostitutes..

The Hotel stands large and tall, looks beautiful from the outside. The rooms and front desk definitly need some Up-Grading. My room was right out of the 60`s and the furniture has been through hell. From the carpet to the A/C everything completely dated and all items have seen there better days. Front desk, well in order to get a safety deposit box, you have to there when someone checks out, very few are available. The buffet, Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner is the finest I have ever seen. Just beautiful and no one can walk away hungery, the food was 5 Star, along with the service. The Casino is full of locals and not real impressive, but everyone was very nice. Yes I know, they should smile when there taking your money. If you want to eat and gamble go there, but the rooms are a big tumbs down.
