Had a wonderful time here. The hotel staff are nice and friendly. Room is very clean. Located in the center of Manila (very busy street). Good Food, Free Wifi. Although the place is not very classy nevertheless travelers on a budget. You'll get your money's worth. I'd be back.

It was not comfortable to stay in this hotel. It was dirty everywhere. The bed, the towels and the slippers were so disgusting! The bathroom there is so small that the shower is just above the toilet bowl. I absolutely don't recommend this to anyone. You will just waste your money..seriously. And the area is very unsafe!

Stayed there two nights, one night in a standard room and the other in the "suite". First of all, most locals say that this area is quite bad to go at night. Apparently there are a lot of snatchers in the area. Secondly, the hotel maintenance is poor, the rooms are not clean and the entrance of the hotel stinks....

I stayed at this hotel because there were good reviews on this hotel. I thought this was in a good area but was wrong. This is located in a dangerous section of Manila. In the hotel, the beds used were box-springs only, no mattresses. Very uncomfortable. Also the restaurant downstairs seemed dirty and was not open when we wanted food....
