it was cheap and i did not expect much. however the room was better -- cleaner than hotels at twice the price. i got sick during my stay -- staff got me another blanket in 5 min. everything worked better than expected.
I have stayed many times at this Hotel and it is consistently fabulous. The hotel is quaint, with larger than normal rooms, always well kept and clean. The staff are the absolute best. You cannot go wrong with this hotel anytime.
Hotel is conveniently located for many of Manila's tourist attractions. The room had the benefit of kitchen facilities, though the supply voltage seemed low causing the stove to struggle to get up to a sensible temperature for cooking.
I shared the room with a mouse for the last three days that the staff seemed quite disinterested in doing anything about.
In other respects the hotel was a pleasant stay - the door staff in particular were very helpful in getting taxis and giving advice.
