For the price and location there is no beating this place. You are just blocks from everything that Malate has to offer. Live band bars, karaoke, restaurants, and spa's galore. For those who like to gamble this is the place for you ... Casino Filipino is right across the street and the Hyatt Casino is only a few blocks away. If you enjoy a healthy dose of the nightlife but don't want to spend too much or listen to music and noise blaring from the streets then this is the place for you.
The service here was great. There are many places that I have stayed at in Philippines, that were supposed to be 4 or 5 star hotels, that should send their employees here to train. The door men were very polite and nice. Constantly making jokes with me as I would come and go throughout the day/night. The front desk personnel were very friendly and efficient. Checking in was very quick and easy to do.
The only reason why this hotel is receiving 4 stars and not 5 is because you must pay for internet (by total usage, though they have a home screen that shows you your usage making it easy to keep track of) and the fact that they do not have a safe in the rooms. I like to carry lots of cash when I travel so I was really hoping to have a safe available for cash as well as my camera and lenses.
Bottom line, this is by far my favorite budget hotel in Manila and will stay here on every visit to the city.
