Brent M. Solo travelers New Zealand, March 18, 2014
lousy rooms and overpriced.

air poet shuttle is the only good thing about this hotel but you must call and book it a few hours before you land. if you book the shuttle, they will not pick you up. good staff also
Had no water in the morning for a shower the rooms are terrible. they are currently renovating but not doing a good job. old tvs. remote didn't work. drinking glasses sitting just above the toilet systern and it is not cheap, but I still go back every time as it is in a good location, a good airport service (free) and nice staff. no point in hasseling the staff about the rooms as it is not there fault.

Budget hotel

One night in Manila

position, reception, travel agency
I selected the Swagman mainly because of the travel agency owned by the hotel, to select my further destination. The reception is ok, bar also, but room are really horrible. Old, with a very noisy aircon, very poor both in decoration and furtniture. I just can't reccomend it. Better to go to a nearby one, travel agency services are anyway available.

An average hotel

Airport shuttle, lobby, wakeup call
They didn't pick me up at the airport so, I had to get a taxi at midnight. Check in was fast but, I had to wait while 3 people, tried to fix my air conditioner. Besides for that, the bed wasn't anything special, I got upgraded to the deluxe room because they didn't pick me up. I didn't see what made it deluxe.

Minium standard room, in grimy.crime ridden area

nothing, except it has a free shuttle to the airport, ( if you stay at the hotel ), to get the hell outta there! Otherwise, the shttle to the airport costs you 500 pesos!
The usual, even the "deluxe" room was worn and dingy, on the the 7th floor.You can't even use the toilet, without getting your feet wet from the shower! Carpet,drapes and bedspread worn and thread bare, air con the old style, and BARELY working, not even a flat screen in the "deluxe" room! The bed is full size, but consists of what feels like piece of plywood, with two to three inches of cheap foam on it! Only reason to stay here was I needed to visit the US embassy on my way to the airport, and avail myself of the free shuttle to the airport.
