The rooms are 5 star rating. They have an excellent staff and very approachable. The rates are guest friendly and of course free buffet breakfast. Their rooms can be reserved via net and walk-in. Their food is excellent and yummy.

Stayed there 2 nights. Room 605 (suite) is big and comfortable. Huge, king size bed. Location of the hotel is really good for tourists - walking distance to Intramuros, A lot of restaurants nearby. Luneta. Robertson's mall is just 5 mins away. Breakfast included, very poor selection. Staff very helpful and nice.

No complaints at all. We stayed here for 4 nights on our recent trip to the Philippines and were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. The meals in the restaurant were excellent. Above all though, the staff were terrific. They were all courteous and extremely helpful whenever anything was needed. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone wanting a place to stay in Manila.

If you require a good nights sleep after a long plane journey this is not the hotel for you. We were woken at 01;00 am by hotel maintenance who decided to do some painting in the corridor adjacent to our room. How Bizarre !!! We complained to the reception staff who apologised, and promptly upgraded us to Deluxe room, which overlooked a busy road.... The noise from the traffic kept us awake. Eventually we just gave up sleeping altogether......
Breakfast is good and the hotel reception staff are friendly, welcoming, and helpful, but this is all we can say about this hotel.
Would we recommend this hotel ? No.. There are better hotels in Manila.

Great Experience this Hotel. From the time I did my online bookings 2 months ahead & then had to change my arrival dates, no problems - thanks Drio !
Upon arrival at Manila int. airport I was greeted by their Rep. & escorted to their Hotel's arrival lounge to wait for there vehicle to the hotel.
We were very early to check in because of my early flight arrival from Darwin 6am., so we waited in there dining room & had some breaky. We weren't meant to check in until 2pm but the duty manager saw how tired we were & gave us an early check-in @ 12 noon & even an upgrade to a Deluxe room !! Wow !!!
Didn't have to walk up any stairs as the lift was great. Third floor room but on the road traffic side of the building but the noise from the traffic wasn't too bad.
Room was modern, Queen size bed but hard & firm mattress. Bathroom is small but good size shower with plenty of hot water. Excellent bathroom accessories, housekeeping service very good & honest, no probs.
Breakfast wash incl in our room rate but the breaky was just ok, I.e., scrambled eggs every morning with bacon, ham or small sausages, everyday one dish different. But excellent Danish Pastries !
My only complaint was the Restaurant's selection of wines ! Yuk !! Chilian !
Upon check out, no worries, they checked the room & found I had left a couple of items & returned them to me immediately, again Great Service !!!
We would have Loved to stay there another 7 days but there room rate increased due to the public holidays here in the Philippines. We found a better rate at similar hotel just around the corner (which I will review later).
Overall, I would recommend La Corona as a good basic Hotel with excellent service & close to downtown old Manila & all the sites plus close to Robinson's Mall within walking distcance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street noise traffic.

Our flight landed pretty early in the morning, we sprung the extra cash (about 800P total for everyone) to have the hotel pick us up, when we arrived around 6am we were told we would have to wait until 1-2pm before the room would be ready, it wasn't occupied at the time as far as we knew so why the 6 hour wait? Thankfully we only waited until 11am. The staff wasn't being rude they just seemed to be following strict guidelines that couldn't be broken.
That's as bad as it got, after that everything was better, the room was very comfortable, the beds were nice and praise be to Zeus air conditioning...sweet sweet air conditioning. The bathroom was clean and we really appreciated the room safe. The breakfast buffet was excellent but small however they tend to you very well.
When it was time to leave I again paid to be driven to the airport this time for a lower rate (400P) I had the van all to myself so that was enjoyable.

The area surrounding the hotel had a very shady feeling to it however I had no problems walking around at night, the people were friendly enough. Be sure to visit the Robinson Mall a few blocks away and the Mall of Asia right on the shoreline if you need...anything at all. If you must be in the area I do recommend this hotel but the nice places to visit are outside Ermita.
