Staid for one night in August 2012. Great appearance from the outside and good value for money if you book ahead. Hotel is quite new but there were two systemic issues that spoiled my stay. Firstly: All room doors close very hard and loudly due to the lack of buffers or other other mechanisms for soft closing of doors. You can hear the neighbors closing the doors across the entire floor. Therefore I could not sleep well. Secondly: Because this is a budget hotel with Airconditioning as an extra paid option (meaning the aircon wont run all the time) and Manila is quite humid as a city the humidity goes down on the bed sheets and pillow cases. Bed feels not dry and has unpleasant smell. Both issues appeared systemic to me and not just related to the particular room I staid in.
