“Peaceful place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Whats great with this place i tgat it is near some of the big schools in manila so it could be a convenient place to stay when attending seminars on the schools within the neighborhood. Robinsons mall is about a minute or two wlak from the hotel. Rooms are clean and has a bible since its managed by a christian group. Only complaint is that there are no available views since there are no windows.

I never heard of this hotel until a sweet lady bookstore owner referred me to this one. This place is very popular with school officials and employees from out of town because it is affordable, clean and a very decent place to stay despite the fact that it is only a few blocks away from the red light district. It is located near Robinson's mall and right next to some reputable schools giving you a safe feeling to walk around the neighborhood even at night. They have a tall building in front about 4 or 5 floors up but I always prefer to stay at the cottage at the back because the rooms are more spacious and quiet. Outside the cottage, there is a small garden where you can sit and enjoy a few quiet moments alone. There is a canteen on the second floor that serves excellent home style food at very reasonable price so you wouldn't have to worry about scrounging for food outside. There is also a mini-store right next door that stays open 24 hours and the korean owner is friendly and helpful all the time. What I really like about this place is the feeling of being home away from home because the staffs (including the security guards) really take the extra step to make you feel comfortable and safe. The price is reasonable considering the excellent service and accommodation that you receive. It is ideal for family or groups who are in town for vacation or training and seminars.

Room Tip: If you are traveling in big groups, choose the cottage at the back, it may look like an old house bu...

I’ve stayed at UCCP shalom center before but this is the first time I am writing a review on my recent stay. It’s best to contact the center yourself to reserve a room, I tried to book a room online but did not receive a confirmation email. You can pay Php1,000 for their van to pick you up at the airport, the van is spacious and is suitable for a group of 5. If you’re on a budget you can ride the airport shuttle and get off at the Taft terminal . From there you can ride the LRT from Taft to Pedro Gil, the center is about a 5 min. walk from the train station. The ladies at the reception desk are courteous and helpful, you can ask directions from them. The rooms are clean and toiletries are provided, there is no in room wifi although you can use the internet services near the reception area. The center is a 2 min walk to Robinson’s Mall where you can dine and shop and it is beside the St. Paul University/Church. Since its at the heart of Manila area, there are lots of small shops and vendors lining up the street. If most of the time you will be out seeing the sights, or on a budget and looking for a clean and comfortable place, don’t hesitate to check out this place.

Room Tip: if you're traveling with your family better get the apartelle, the family room is at the back of...
