            Rooms are clean and staff is attentive & provided excellent service.”

            Minuses- Wish there was a luggage rack to place your bags, ledges or cubby holes to place toiletries in. Pluses - AC was working well which provided much needed respite from the heat. Breakfast is ample and they do vary the selection daily which is a great touch and provided more value. It is a no frills property but being clean and being close to restaurants and shops make this a hotel surprisingly of excellent value. The staff too is great!

            staffs are very accomodating.....however the only complain i have is that they dont include the hot choco for breakfast they must consider that not all people are coffee drinker so they should put an option ....they serve juice thought but we prepare chocolate drink plus the juice is just an instant mix so its all sugar.... we stayed there for almost a week and the pool's water wasn't change.....

            Great stay!”

            We got the room for 4 which has a double bed and 2 single beds. Pros: - the entire room was clean - the bed covers and pillows and even the towels smells clean - good noise cancellation from outside noise - has free soap and shampoo for the whole group - has complimentary water and sodas which is really great small gesture when other hotels doesnt have it or when they do its something you pay an additional - polite staffs - breakfast was quite simple but good (do not expect something so extravagant its a free breakfast after all) - all amenities were working properly (ref/tv/sockets/bidet etc...) - i would not think twice going back here. Cons: - wifi could be improved it was a little slow at the time of our stay good thing we all use data so it wasnt a big issue.

            difficult time made a little bit easier”

            I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the Arlington Memorial Chapel. I recently lost a loved one and needed a place to stay that was near where we had the wake. The entire stay in this hotel was hassle-free and almost pleasant, given the circumstances. The only slight con is that their parking area is always near-full, and classic cars, presumably owned by the hotel's owners, are parked in the slots.

            The hotel was renovated so it looked a lot better than how I remembered it used to be. The rooms are neat & always made up. The outdoor pool is small but clean. The staffs are very attentive , friendly and courteous. The breakfast & WIFI is complimentary w/c is great! We stayed in deluxe room (the cheapest 😜) but was very comfortable. The location is excellent if staying in Manila. SM centerpoint is just few steps away. You will never go hungry. Thanks to the food shops just few blocks from the hotel. This hotel is great value for the money I paid for. I will surely recommend this hotel 👍👌

            Stayed here for a covention in UERMMC and it was just within 5 mins walking distance from the convention site, a mall, and restaurants. For the easy on the budget price that we got for a room, the space was surprisingly spacious, the bathroom was large and clean, and the filipino buffet breakfast offered good food choices.
