        Clean, cool and comfy room”

        Pros: 1.The bed was white and comfy like a cloud. 2.There's a sink beside our window, so it's convenient for us. 3.The AC was fine. The coffee shop at the lobby had a good ambiance. Pesto pasta was the best. 4. The staff was approachable. Cons: 1.The chimney needs repair because we can smell fried chikcken in our room. 2.We sa small cockroaches on the wall and inside the cabinet. I hope they use insecticide regularly.

        I was traveled in group and stayed only for 3 nights. The overall stay was good, we didn’t book for breakfast. Easy to located. The only thing that i want to critics is since the hotel was on a busy street, the horn and all the noise from the road was really heard clearly. If you are a light sleeper, maybe you can ask for a room not facing the road. Overall it’s a nice stay

        This hotel is more than very good in terms of affordability. For couples or families who have no place to stay in Manila, you have a big enough space that is clean and well air conditioned. the only problem I had was the distance of eating places though you can make orders for delivery over the phone. I stayed most of the time in their room because it is restful.

        The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We stayed in a room with two double beds. It was nice that the toilet n shower spaces were separate so people could use them simultaneously. We paid for no breakfast so we had to order on our own.the food was good BUT service was not executed well..we ordered for three tocinos and longganisa.then the waitstaff came back to our table to tell us that the tocinos are no longer available bec the last one was already ordered by another table..so we had to change our 3 tocino order to 2 daing and 1 hotdog.then when the food arrived she served us 1 longanisa, 2 daing and 1 tocino.so we told her that we thought there were no tocino available already,then she apologized n was hoing to give the tocino to the other table(IN WHICH CASE WE ORDERED AHEAD OF THEM,so we should have gotten our orders called out first.but they gave the tocinos to the other table)according to the wait staff it was the decision of the chef.we told her to leave thw tocino in our table esp bec it was our order that they should have prioritized first since we made our order first.we had children who wanted to eat tocinco but bec of their own unreasonable decision we had to change our orders when they could have just given it to us.

        nice place”

        nice and clean place, very friendy and accommodating staff. i just hope that they will add in cable channels. sometimes people would like movie channels instead of those home tv shopping networks. other than this everything is great. budget friendly.

        Cheap, nice place and staff”

        The only hard part is that there were little choices on restaurants and establishments arround. But overall, its well worth the stay.
