Look, I just checked out of Bayview Park Hotel this morning and the stay was pretty much as expected. Compared to the other places around, Bayview offered a pretty good internet price for two nights. I paid $118, plus surcharge, NO internet included, NO breakfast buffet included. Not too shabby. It was about 640 pesos for WIFI internet in my room for two nights. Also not too bad of a deal. It's right next to 7-11, Yellow Cab Pizza and Starbucks. Taxis run right in front of the hotel all the time as well.
The hotel itself could use some love, but they are renovating, which shows that they are working on it. The staff themselves were very friendly at the front desk. The guy handed me my room key and two tickets to free buffet, and then took it back telling me that it didn't come with the room. I was a little mad about it, but hey, people make mistakes. I did get a chance to eat there with a buddy and it was less than good. If the food was better, this would have been 4 out of 5 stars for me here.
The room was good. The carpet was old, but not disgusting. The bed was pretty comfortable, and the shower felt great with tons of water pressure. The TV was smaller with no HDMI input, but I didn't watch too much TV anyways. The internet was pretty good for the price. It had it's moments, but it worked really well for me to download stuff and talk with my wife back in the States. AC was great and it was colder than cold in there with the chance to adjust the temperature in the room.
The gym there was disgusting though. I was disappointed with it and it smelt terrible. They need to give that place some love. It's on the top floor and out of the way. Kinda creepy going up there and there needs to be better signs up there.
Overall it was pretty good, and you can't complain for the price for two nights. If you're just looking to use WIFI and sleep, this place is probably for you. Not too far away from Mall of Asia and the other places to go, like Hyatt, Hobbit House, etc. Bottom line: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
