Free pick up and drop
You don't need to worry for a ride to the hotel and back to the airport because they're there to provide you and it's free. Friendly, helpful staff. Good foods of course! We will back for sure!!!:)

Not so good
Close to where we wanted to be
The hotel is walking distance from the Riza Park and Manila Ocean Park But the wifi connection is so poor even in the hotel lobby. Most of the staff are so busy talking to one another than making their jobs, the hotel and the restaurant is very tiny that soooooo hard to move or pass then the CA is not adjustable and hot. We had to ask to get our room clean. There is no shelves space to set your staff just in floor and the surprise is I saw 2 cockroaches.

Poor communication in advance
It's no use to send inquiry e-mailas in English. It's her policy to ignore guest's inquiries.
