This place is a very poor quality run down dump. It is nothing like the photos on hotel sites. The rooms are dark dirty dingy rooms and they smell and there is a very unsafe feeling in this poor quality hotel. The rooms are nothing like what is advertised on their website or hotel websites. The rooms are like an...

We could hear everything from neighbours, the hall, could hardly sleep even with earplugs! The room was literally swarming with ants and a couple of cockroaches and mosquitos, Breakfast was ok if you eat there once, no variety, they were very reluctant to bring even milk to our tea as this was extra. The overall cleaning questionable but the beds...

The photographs are nothing like the photographs  advertised and nothing like how the hotel actually appears in life. The rooms have old cement rendered walls There are no blackout curtains. The free Wi-Fi is hopeless & you can hardly do more than Facebook as connection is extremely poor & speed is like dial up. It is very old, dated and...

It's an old hotel. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and offered reasonable space. Our beds/mattresses were very uncomfortable (very soft). The aircon was okay; however there was a nasty dripping sound from other aircons. Using the TV is tricky. Some fittings in the bathroom should be replaced. Very good wifi in the room. We found the price to be very...

If location is everything then this hotel definitely have it. It is in the heart of the City within walking distance to Mango Square and it's nightlife. Rooms are dated but well-kept. The staff is consistently friendly and helpful. The prices though not a bargain are affordable and reasonable. I have stayed here many times and continue to rebook when...

We have stayed in many places in the Philippines, this was the most we paid per night and the worst we have stayed in. We expected a lot more. Rooms were unclean. The AC didn't work so we could not sleep. The included breakfast was disgusting. I asked for fruit and they said they didn't have any. For a big...

Disgusracful. Complete disaster of a hotel. Provided the wrong key to a room, God forbid someone be in the room. Ants crawling everywhere. Noisy, rooms like I imagine a prison cell would be. No apology, no customer care Be warned, stear clear.
