“GREAT Hotel in grotty place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I want to have the drug of the guy he must have been taking when he decided to put this hotel in a place like this. If you are looking for a great room with really nice features, lots of space and don´t plan to leave the hotel, this is the place to go. The staff is great, helpful and bend over backwards to make you feel at home. So just stay there and don´t bother to look or even go outside. You will be met with pollution, noise and the usual smell of garbage, jeepney and trycicle exhaust gases mixed with the close by chinese "deli" stenches which basically has nothing to do with chinese food. Just cupnoodle places to poison yourself. Avoid the Cafe France around the corner under all circumstances as the food there seems to come from the left over thrown out by the chinese places. Basically every building in a 500 meter radius is a bank. There must be 50 of them. Not one restaurant besides the one in the hotel. Unless you want to call Yellow cab and McDo a restaurant. The hotel restaurant has a very good with set menu for very acceptable prices and a nice international selection of a la carte dishes. The only problem is the fact that the chef seems to be US trained. He puts sugar into absolutely everything. Breakfast for a non Filipino is close to neglectable despite a rich buffet. No bread (except the sweet stuff they think is bread), sweet pork sausage called longanisa.
So my advise again. Stay inside as also taxis will take forever to get out of the area due to permanently clogged roads around the place. Allow an additional 30 minutes if you need to get to the airport.

The hotel was great! The staff were very friendly. The room and the bathroom is clean. Wifi is fast. Truly a good 4 star hotel. Their breakfast tastes great! The environment has a wide assortment of Chinese foods. A little downside would be it's location. It's a little far from the public transportation (MRT) but if you don't mind the exercise, then it shouldn't be a problem.

The hotel is so nice. I was so impressed with their bathroom coz it so clean and bright. Plus the food also is very nice. But am we're not that comfortable of where it was situated. Seems the area looks rough.

I am always going to Manila for business and decided to check this new hotel out,

I have nothing but praise for the hotel's customer service. They went above and beyond the call of duty recently when I needed to print out some files and the staff are friendly and very helpful when asking for directions about the area. Also, this hotel is a great choice for bargain hunters. Lucky Chinatown Mall, 168, 999 shopping mall is very near and just a little perseverance and you’ll get to find so many treasures in these shopping malls.

Good service, good price, good location. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed here in late february.I was a traveller.. nice enough hotel, with a lovely welcome from the staff with a nice room with a view of binondo church. breakfast was nice. I thought of having a walk around the area as i was only staying around for one night. Only to be mugged while crossing the street within yards of being at the hotel, big advice for this area.. dont carry jewellery, money, passport, or anything with centemental value NOONE WILL HELP!. Police and the people around were useless. noone would help me.the only person who was helpful was a traffic warden! I will never be back in Philippines even if I was paid £billion! Very distressing time for a lone traveller. although it has not stopped me seeing the world :)

Bnondo area is famous for its old churches, we did make to a mass in the evening. The hotel is a good clean 4 star with the rooms having all necessary amenities and comforts. The are few restaurants down the road for Chinese and pino food just 5min stroll. Dose to a huge mall in walking distance about 7min. Breakfast buffet is very good and quite a selection of local and international food. No garden as it is Road frontage, small lobby with comfortable seating, staff at front desk, doorman, and even the room service staff are very helpful.

This is one of the most economical hotels that I have stayed in considered the amenities that the hotel provides. This hotel is situated very near to some good malls in Manila (Lucky Chinatown and 168). If you are a shopaholic, then you will love the location.

The rooms are comfortable and provide a great value for money. The staff is courteous and professional. The only downside during our stay was that the WiFi was not working on our floor! The breakfast has a decent spread.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I visit Manila.
