What you pay is what you get

Friendly staffs, cheap, fast check in and check out
Overall it was not so great. We stayed there for two nights. The room was so small, we kept bumping to the wall and the bed. There was a rat in our room during our last night. The toilet is very tiny, technically you can take a dump while having a bath. Maybe due to exhaustion, I get a good night sleep there. The staffs was very friendly.The location of the hotel is very hard to find by our taxi driver, so if you want to go there, just tell the driver that the hotel is adjacent to Santa Cruz church.

Budget and comfortable

The bed was big and comfortable, nice staff and free drink water supply.
It was nice and comfortable but there is no room service for about 4 days. There is free drinks water which is very good that we can save budget rather than buying water from outside. The food is delicious and price value. Quite near to attraction places such as Intramuros. I can ride the Jeepney to Shopping mall with a cheap fares. Its also near supermarket Pure Gold and Save & More which we can save more.

Helpful receptionist and Guard

the room is quite small but the bed is still fit for two people. however, the toilet is too small, hard to move around. upon our arrival, we asked the receptionist about some directions to certain places, and she definitely provide a lot of helpful informtation with self drawing maps, standard pricing of tricycle,jeepney and taxi.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Intramuros

Nice hotel, cheap and friendly staff only

Stayed in the Apartel with 2 bedrooms, near to everything, shops, 24hrs store, etc..
I would come back to this hotel next time. Suggestion to the hotel management, can we have cups and spoons in the Apartel since there is kitchen? Thanks!

Apestaba a comida China

Lo único bueno que le veo a este hotel es la ubicación, ya que se puede ir andando a muchos sitios de interés. Pero en general el barrio es feo e intranquilo.. mucha pobreza alrededor.
