all together really good, manager very helpful to
I was missing the daylight, instead of glass there are wooden shutters giving a all-day-darkness, air-con only manually, but not too loud, Very good are the nice large rooms, maybe on a bit old style of the 1980-1990, but still comfortable with giving a good feeling, bathroom large, everything clean and also with a good water-pressure, always lovely hot water. I was so lucky by even having a jacuzzi in my room...... I come again!

Value for money
Value for meney, Staff, clean
The place does not look of much from outside. Placed in the yard behind. But the place is OK. Forst night I had got a room with trafic noice, but no problem to get an other room. There is no restaurant, but roomservice is OK and a lot og eatingplaces putside. Jeepneys goes in the streets on both sides. Near to the seaside. The only place where it is possible to go for jogging in Manila.

Great Stay
Staff, room better than expected, jacuzzi in room
I really enjoyed my stay and would stay here again over some of the nicer hotels I stayed at in malate. The only drawback is the mall is about an 1 mile walk and there is no safe in the room.

Excellent deal
The place is conveniently located in Malate and, taking into account the fares in Manila, it is a really good deal. It is a Motel, prepared for couples with private garage, but works as a normal hotel. The staff is really proffessional and attentive. If you want to stay in Malate and have a big room with a huge comfortable bed and air.co at a good prize, dont hesitate. I.would definitely repeat

Good hotel for a short stay, great location
Jacuzzi in the room, big and comfortable bed, great location!
This hotel is actually a "love motel", but it is still great as a hotel. I stayed 3 nights in a deluxe bedroom and I found it very comfortable. The bed is large and comfortable, the bedroom is pretty clean (some parts are a little bit dusty though), the jacuzzi in the bedroom is fantastic and the air conditioner works very well, even though it is a bit noisy. Staff is ok, the ladies on the phone are very helpful. The food is good as well, a bit expensive, but you can always go out and get something nearby. The place is close to Manila Bay, which is a great place for a walk, especially at sunset time. You have to be a bit careful with the surrounded areas though, there are quite many drunk people at night. It is also nice that you get 24 hours to stay there from the time you check in. So if you check in at 6pm on a Sunday, you can check out by 6pm on your last day. The bedroom could have a larger window. Since the bedroom is a bit dark, having a very small window makes you not want to stay at the bedroom during the day at all. The guys at the reception could be a bit more helpful, they did not make any effort to explain why booking on Agoda was almost half of the price compared to booking the place in person, when I tried to extend my stay. That and the window made me decide for not extending my stay.

dont stay here...
worst hotel I have ever stayed in.....rooms stank of cigarette smoke....didn't service the room even though we left sign on door for them to do so...we had to phone and ask...paid agoda for 2 days in advance...otherwise would have left without even staying one night.!!!...price was to include breakfast....there is no restaurant....they tell you to choose from menu in room and wait...then the kitchen tells you that you cant have eggs with your breakfast as they are not included...even though the menu says eggs.!!!!...do not stay at this hotel.!!!!

My flight was canceled
1. Helpful Management 2. Courteous Staff 3. Clean and Comfortable Room's
My flight was canceled and the manager was very helpful in holding my room and arranging airport transport to the hotel. My 77 year old mother was with me and the new room was on the second floor all the staff assisted her up and down the stairs when I was not available. To the staff of the Sohotel Malate. Thank you for your service and to the driver Rick a special thank you for driving us the 95 mile to Olongapo city during a that tropical type storm. Maraming Salamat

Cheap and VERY Cheeerful!
Staff attention Food Quiet locatio
The SOHOTEL has been my hotel of choice on many occaisions for a budget type hotel. Firstly its staff is attentive! It have a 7 eleven ; Jollibee (McDonalds)and ATM locted a 2 min walk away. ALTHOUGH in a somewhat rundown area of Manila it is close to Manila Bay where an early morning walk invigorates the senses.Malate Roman Cathlic Cathederal is 2 mins away (if the Taxi Driver does not know TELL Him NEAR Malate Cathderal and !he uses his meter~although a 60 pesos tip is appreciated! if he does!) May Hotels in the area go for USD 150 so at $50 its pretty good it has a fridge and you can request a Jacuzzi room.
