Not very pleasant this time

The location is very convenient. We alays stay her bec it's close to my parents house. The first room we were assigned: the shower flooded (drain not working properly). We were moved to another room. I found a dead cockroach on the bed! When I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, there was a lot of little cockroaches crawling around.

not bad!

eversince we've been booking for few days here in this hotel even if im not a member of Agoda yet, because its close to one of my old property in Q.C.and to my relatives. This time I booked for 4 days after 7 days in one of the hotels near EDSA,ive chosen De Luxe coz i dont really need early breakfast. after 2 days of my stay Ive requested to be transferred to Suite (coz they said all are newly renovated) but nobody was able to help me.(reason - agoda's fax goes to office and its close coz its Sunday and etc....) anyway i survived before going back to UK. location wise,very near SM Sta Mesa and all the new restaurants at SM Mezza,so many choices like Starbucks and Pancake house and a lot more. Pool cleanliness still being maintained. Staff are nice.I tried their noodles (Bihon) so tasty. The things that i hate: no signal for phone inside the room and wifi is only available at the lobby.The noise at the lobby early morning and the noise outside the building (my room located on the left side) Hope for the whole renovation of the Hotel!Keep it up!

Not Again

Walking down the filthy 2nd floor hallway, opening the old flimsy door to my room, it looked reasonably clean. The mini-fridge was full of cockroaches that scampered out when I opened it, presumably hiding throughout the room. The room was next to a crematorium, that when fired up to roast corpses, is very loud and you cannot hear the TV. Internet is supposed to be available in the lobby (not rooms), yet it was completely down for 2 out of the 3 days. I am very tolerant and usually do not complain about budget hotels. But this was bad, not super cheap- although the bed was clean enough and I have been in worse. It looks fine from the outside and restaurant looked OK.

Good for overnight/short duration stay

Affordability, cleanliness, and proximity to other Metro Manila cities
We just came and tired from office work and we decided to have a peaceful rest in a nearby hotel. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the friendly and accommodating receptionist. Once we gave our confirmed booking number, we were immediately directed to our room. The room was quite spacious although one could discern that the rooms were not as new compared to other hotels. The TV is quite small and of old model, and Wi-Fi is only available at the Lobby area. Nevertheless, we fell asleep easily and there were no distractions observed. I recommend this Hotel to those who would want a budget accommodation looking for a decent place to have a rest or just a "me" time within the city.

Place was worn and filthy.

There was nothing good about this hotel.
Horrible experience. If I had not checked in late I would have found another hotel the first night. Reservation was for 4 nights and though I already paid, and without refund, I checked out the first morning and moved to a nice hotel. The place was dark and dingy, and quite literally, filthy. I had to get clean sheets because the sheets had not been changed and they were stained. Both chairs in room were old, worn, and stained. I ordered clean sheets and slept on top of the covers and in the morning when I checked out the front desk required payment for the clean sheets. The floor in the room was dirty and with fluid stains. There is no elevator and a ramp on the stairs to pull up your luggage. No Wi-Fi in room. I travel all over the world and this is the worst place I have ever experienced! And you wouldn't want to walk the neighborhood at night. Mark
