If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay with a relaxed atmosphere in Manila this is it. The hotel is located in Intramuros(the old walled city of Manila). Remnants of the wall are right across the street from the hotel entrance. We enjoyed a relaxing stroll along the battlements on Christmas morning which allowed us to see some of Intamuros' sites at are our own pace. Our contact with the hotel began before our arrival as I emailed to confirm our reservations for 24-26 Dec. Our confirmation was expeditiously replied to by Francis Serrano(Reservations Associate).
Upon our arrival on Xmas eve day we were greeted by smiling faces and enthusiastic employees starting our stay off with positive vibes. The front desk staff lead by John made the check -in/chek-out experiences painless. The breakfast buffets were excellent as were the appetizers we had on the 1st night and the entrees we had on the 2nd night. The dining room is on the 9th floor but I recommend eating on the Sky Deck which is a floor above so you can savior the fabulous 360 degree view of Manila. We wish to thank the entire staff for making our mini Christmas holiday so enjoyable. We will be staying here on future visits to Manila. One recommendation please either raise the daily rate to include the price of robes/slippers or include at your current rate, seems very cheesy to say they are available for 35 php. Either way would not prevent me from enjoying your hotel on many more ocassions
