Resurant use to be good,

The Fly the bus to other locations cheap
They lost power for a few hours walking up to the 4th floor was difficult with no air con in the walk way, they offered to move us to a higher floor that did have power but that was even higher lol.. No elevator when power is out ,so, we had to walk in the dark in a old hotel. I recommended staying some place else as other hotels are newer for the same price. Ar the restaurant i got served cold chicken adoboe i waited for long time for cold adoboe wtf, then all my friends had there food while i waited a long time to get mine heated up.. Oh yah dont go to the famous LA Cafe / new name Bay Cafe near by they wont let you bring in your own friend because the local FR girls get upset.. I was told to bring her id so we went back to hotel and back then they still said no even with her id. That place has had allot of bad things happen from the FR girls there.. Suggest down the street a ways to a very nice aussie hang out with good food and free pool music..

Location is all it has going for it.
I expected some improvement in this hotel from its new owners but it is still a run down budget hotel

Fly the Bus service makes it appealing

Fly the bus service, Internet, and friendly staff
A very convenient place to stay for the fly the bus service and free airport shuttle service.

Good stopping off place in Manila

Close to airport and Robinsons Mall
i have used this hotel many times it is a great place to stay for a night when coming and going from manila. the thing i like most about staying at this hotel is the free airport pick up and drop off service. however on this trip my airport pick up was not there and i had to catch a taxi. this has happened to me twice now. come on swagman buck up. the last thing you want after a long flight is the hastle of finding a taxi and negotiating prices with the driver.
Nightlife Tip: Very close to g point and the LA cafe also close to Robinsons Mall

Useful hotel from airport

Needs a total renovation,this hotel has not been looked after for a long time.
Used this hotel for 1 night to be picked up from airport,needs a very good renovation,handy to catch the Fly the bus but charges are high for it's comfort.
Hotel Feature Tip: Needs a lot of improvement.

service with a smile

free airport shuttle bus
rooms are small and grotty, the resturant was ok,I booked a deluxe room and believe me it was nothing like the photo, I was thinking the standard room must be real bad,on the plus side free shuttle bus to the airport and thats it
