filthy, unorganized
Room service is fast.
Disappointed..I hate the stay I had with this hotel since the room is not clean and the towels were all over the place. The sink is not working even the shower. They did not give me a key since the room was just cleaned and so I have to go to the room with the key on the door. The TV is not working and cannot watch local channels.

safe and privy accomodation
1. access to public transport 2. good food 3. safe & privy accomodation
please refer to the incident or comments made on my first day stay which was November 24 to 26 booked in a premium room and transferred to de luxe room on November 26 and checked out on November 28 2013. Am not contented with the room cleanliness standards and food service and as well as FO operation. It is interesting to note that the hotel is best suited on an hourly stay only. Though the reason why I opted for this hotel due to the accessibility to my sons' place studying at nearby university.

Booking it online does not guarantee that you have a ready & clean room reserved as per voucher. It usually takes several minutes to confirm the said booking and cleaning the room. I was expecting that once the booking is confirmed online.. all I have to do is just present the voucher then check it online then give me the room key. Then I stayed at the premium room for 2 days without any changes in linens.. then I presented another Agoda voucher to transfer to de luxe room for another 2 days, I requested for toiletries but I was told in de luxe room it is for sale. Am just wondering why the premium room is giving it for free.. Then after few hours, the front office called me if am gonna extend for few more extra hours.. but I advised the FO that my Agoda booking indicates that my check out will still be on the other day. Again, my linens were not changed and the room was not cleaned. And for the food, the money back guarantee if the food is not served within 10 minute was not true! When I ordered my breakfast, it took me almost 20 minutes to wait.. I dialled "0" after 15 minutes to inform them that I've been waiting for my order then she apologized and after 5 minutes my order arrived and the waiter told me "Happy holidays, Sir, P 150". So I reminded him of the guarantee.. but he got the money and the receipt and walk away.

Good location close to Chinatown, adult hotel.
Easy access to the Manila MRT, good location and inexpensive, clean room for Manila.
Our stay was fine. We just needed a basic hotel in the area of Chinatown in Manila. This is a good, basic room at reasonable price for Manila. Check-in and check-out were easy and efficient. The room was basic but clean. The TV worked well with a large selection of local and some international channels. The area around the hotel is very Manila... Very active street scene... Several markets in the area for food and drink. Many inexpensive eating options in the area.

Hotel Sogo Avenida
Room service
The street outside is full of garbage and I was not comfortable walking around this area. I stayed for the night I payed and the got out as soon as possible. And the music from nerby places makes it impossible to sleep.

one of the 2 worst hotels we've tried
manageable wifi, room service (food), nothing else!
This is one of the 2 worst hotels we have ever stayed in. Hotel Sogo Avenida is in the middle of a very chaotic, overpopulated area, its just along the road but u are unable to get there directly via taxi/vehicle and need to walk to reach the hotel because its just so overpopulated with people, stores, things, everything. The hotel itself is darkly lit from the moment u enter. The room itself is dingy, dark, decrepit with damp floors, mattresses, thin poor-quality bed and bedding. The bathroom is a pittance of a bathroom, with a dirty toilet without a seat/cover, there is NO hot shower so you shower cold. The bathroom is just as dirty, if not dirtier than the room. The room itself is not barely 10sq metres in size so its very very small. The internet works though and their room services (food) is palatable and ok-priced. Although I will never recommend this hotel to couples with children/families. The worst part is that this hotel prices its rooms at the same rate as that of other more decent, nicer hotels.

Our stay was great and enjoyable throughout.
It's cleanliness, great and friendly staff, and it's centrally location to almost all landmarks in Manila.
During our stay of 3 days at this hotel we were able to do everything we planned to do in that area and it's vicinity.Very easy to get good cheap meals. The sidewalks provide vendors to sell almost anything you want for a very low price.Walking distance to almost anything like - the Quiapo Church, Cariedo LRT Station, Plaza Sta Cruz, Chinatown,Plaza Miranda, Plaza Lacson, and Plaza Lawton near the Manila City Hall. Indeed, we enjoyed our stay at Hotel Sogo Avenida.
