dissapointed
Called hotel for hotel transfer which was pre-arranged , told 30-40 minutes which was acceptable, transfer arrived 1 hour and 50 min later. waiting with 6 month old of which they knew ,not accaptable. Asked for kettle to make baby's bottle on 5 occasions each time they said they would send to room on last day told none available. In both cases if the staff were honest I could have got a taxi and bought a kettle but instead kept promising it will be there soon. Disappointed as stayed there many times and this never happened before

A pleasant place near center for Malate area
If not the best value for money, it is a pleasant place which has advantages particularly in the logistics department with airports pickups and bus to Angeles, very centered for the Malate area

A work in progress
have been staying here 25 years and it has been deteriorating. Recently purchased, the new owner is doing some things that are really interesting and show great potential, but there were roaches in my room, some kind of larvae in my bed and the ham and cheese sandwich I ordered had minuscule ham or cheese. I expect it will improve but I won't go back to find out

Much better now
Since my last visit in 2014, SWAGMAN, has undergone renovations, which has improved the hotel immensely. The rooms are still basic, but much cleaner and tidier. They have a decent menu and the bar is open 24 hours! However, the breakfast could do with improvement by keeping it hot. By the time I was ready for mine, it was luke warm to cold. It is much better value now, but I would prefer it as a stop over for a few days rather than long term.
