Booked online at a very good price including breakfast. Stayed 5 nights in all . The area surrounding the hotel is what would probably be called "seedy" but if you travel , take it in as part of the experience!
My wife and I stayed 2 days. We booked the aqua room. It was amazing to open the door and see a saltwater aquarium as a complete wall. The amount of fish and colors were mesmerizing! I just wanted to lay in bed and admire the tank all day. But I didn't, we walked to Luneta park. Here we learned about the history of the Philippines. Paid ten pesos to walk through the Japanese garden, worth it. Do not recommend going at night. The hotel has an aquarium you must visit, jelly fish exhibit was nice. The sealion show was nice. And the light fountain show was nice too.there are shops there and Asian resturant was nice, food was excellent, we hand the complementary breakfast, was out of this world! We had to skip lunch it was worth it. The staff and the Hotel are immaculate, everything with the staff was great. They are very helpful. We really had a great time! !!!
the hotel is near the Roxas Blvd. where I enjoyed the nice walk in the morning. Also near various restaurants and eating facilities. The staffs are excellent and very helpful to the guest and treated you with respect and very hospitable. I enjoyed dealing with them.
I enjoyed my stay. I had a standard room first night. Matters very firm, Philippine way. The up grade room, delux suite. Well worth me money. Very nice , large. Nice bathroom. I looked at 4 rooms before I picked the delux room. I found many rooms dark wood or colourings. But this was what was available to look at.
Over all I would go back again. Good diverse rice. Friendly staff.
The staff were very smart, courteous and friendly. The room was very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed. The gym was well equipped with a well priced Spa service that sorted out those aches and pains from the long flights and transit waiting. The hotel isn't in the nicest of areas but the city centre can easily be accessed by a 30min stroll along the waterfront, or a very cheap 5-10 minute taxi ride. Connection from the airport is 30-50 mins depending on traffic but worth the effort. It's worth Pre-booking with Expedia because prices on arrival are far higher.
The roof top pool is also a great way to relax for a couple of hours before heading back to the airport.
