I stayed here for 2 nights in November 2017. I requested a non-smoking room and a room higher up and both requests were granted. The room was large, well appointed (safe, working wifi, spacious bathroom) and despite being in a bustling area it was quiet at night. The staff here were terrific. I arrived at the hotel around 1pm on a Sunday afternoon after breezing through the airport and catching a quick, cheap taxi and hitting virtually no traffic (rare for Manila apparently). The staff were more than happy to allow me to check-in even though it was before the stated check-in time. As I had just come off an extremely long day of travel I found my way to the rooftop where I was greeted by a restaurant with fantastic views of the city, a nice pool and a hot tub that was very relaxing. Top marks for the rooftop facilities and the staff working up there. Every staff member I ran into was polite and courteous. There are a number of bars and restaurants in the area and Century Mall is just across the road but Manila doesn't have great transport and the traffic during weekdays is at a standstill so even though it seems like a great location, there really is no location in the city that isn't a hassle if you want to get out and explore. This isn't Bangkok, there just isn't nearly as much to see and do but if you're looking for a good base for a few nights in the city you can't go wrong. The wifi worked well enough. There's a number of hotels in the area but I found this to be the best value in terms of amenities offered and the quality of the facility for the price, and the reviews seemed to back that up. The location is nice and close to the airport, yet in one of the more desirable neighborhoods to stay. There is a small red light district around the corner so it may not be the best place to bring the kids out at night. If I found myself back in Manila I wouldn't hesitate to stay here or at the sister City Garden Grand property across the road.
