For location alone, this hotel scores. It is in the heart of Manila. A walking distance to a major mall, within 30 minutes of Makati. The second best thing is the staff. They are very accommodating: early or late arrival, delayed check out, luggage storage if going out of Manila for short trips. I rarely eat at the hotel restaurant or order from room service as there are a hundred of other choices around the hotel including the mall.
For the last six years, I've stayed at this hotel for two weeks at a time just about every 6 months.
There maybe other better hotels in the area (including the Pan Pacific and Hyatt) but for the money, Palm Plaza is more than a bargain.
For sure there are things that can be better. Being an older hotel, the furnishing is outdated but serviceable. Wifi is available but can be expensive. It is located on the corner of two very busy streets so outside noise can be a problem.
But I'm happy with the place and I would highly recommend it for budget conscious travelers.
