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.

Good Aussie Restaurant/Hotel in an Isolated Area

Staff Service, Free shuttle to Airport, and Restaurant with LIve Entertainment.

I came from Swagman Angeles City hotel on their bus which charges 600 pesos for the two hour ride to Ermita area (compare that to 200 pesos for a ride from Dau bus station to Cubao or Pasay). The Ermita hotel is on the very narrow A. Flores street (bus almost cannot travel down it to stop in front of the hotel), in a residential neighborhood, not really within walking distance of much except a local park and a convenience store. Taxis do not usually go down A. Flores Street, so I walked to the convenience store and flagged down a taxi. Room is comfortable with empty refrigerator, and tiny bathroom. Took a taxi (60 pesos) to the Robinson's Malate, and had a great Filipino dinner with entertainment at the Zamboanga Restaurant a half block away. The Angeles Swagman Hotel is much less impressive with an non-airconditioned restaurant with okay food, but with mostly Australian tourists watching horse races. The Angeles Swagman is also in a residential neighborhood, far from the more interesting parts of Angeles city. A shuttle service (van) runs to Olongopo city for 500 pesos.
