I liked the room and the way it was organized. I liked how it was set up for longer stays. The bathroom was nice. The bed was comfortable. Lots of storage, a safe for valuables, smoking options. I especially liked how helpful everyone was. I was able to walk to an atm, a grocery store, and mini stop is just downstairs. Lots of taxis and the guard stops them for you. A jeep will take you straight there on that street. Very clean. Had a window, great price for an exec suite. There were some ants in the room that got to my candy. But maybe that was from my backpack because we traveled to Manaoag. Furniture was a lil dated. It was noisy probably due to that room's location but I was still able to sleep. No elevator so bags had to be carried but they do it for you. Phone calls had to be transferred by the front desk but they were free.
It's located by Greenvelt 1 which has everything you need re: stores, food, shopping. The room was spacious and nice. It was very relaxing and the staff were very friendly. The thing I didn't like was I had to pay for a half day for 1 hour. I was waiting for a ride and they came at 1pm, 12pm was checkout. l mentioned it to them just to see how they handle situations like that. They said,"sorry sir." They were polite but don't do anything. In fairness, it wasn't about the money, I would have liked to see something beyond words. I won't miss the 1200 pesos, I was just missing a good faith gesture. A voucher for free coffee would have at least showed an effort.
Nothing Somehow, all of the reviews failed to mention that this hotel was above a popular spot to pay for some action. Hookers aside, the room was very dark, the bathroom door did not shut, the blinds could not be completely closed, and the entire room was crawling with small cockroaches (I spotted at least 6). There was an excessive amount of mold on the bathroom ceiling and the bath towels were old, dingy, and severely stained. The wifi was so poor it took about 30 seconds to load each page. Upon checkout the next day, I asked the front desk if I could use their phone (as there was not one in the room) to contact my Uber, who couldn't seem to locate us (as the hotel is located on the second floor, and the wifi kept disconnecting). They informed me that they could not, because they could not call cell phones from their landline, and did not offer any assistance. I have been staying at cheaper hotels throughout my entire month stay in Asia and this was by far the worst one and the most expensive.
Very friendly staff, laundry service just downstairs, very close to Greenbelt mall and market area.
if you are looking for a plush hotel with 5-star treatment, then this is not the hotel for you. if you have traveled to Asia and the Philippines in the past, and you know what it is like, then you will not be surprised by this condotel as it is typical of the 3-star hotels in Manila (Makati.) Location is excellent being that it is located right across the street from the new Greenbelt Mall where there are many fine dining and entertainment establishments. This central location is only minutes away from major business locations depending on what you are in the Philippines for. If you are there on vacation and budget is a concern, then this may be just the place for you!! Unlike the other review, I have never had any problems with the staff at this hotel. Treating them with respect will go a long way with them! On the same note, I have had rooms where there was a problem, and the staff worked hard to find me a new room to meet my needs. As mentioned, it depends on what you are looking for and what you expect. If you have never travled to Asia or the Philippines, then you might be better off staying at a MORE EXPENSIVE and More luxurious hotel. If you can handle being in a place that does not look like the Marriott or have a huge Buffet for you to eat at 24-hours a day, then this may be just the place for you!!
- Would not stay again. Stayed April 09. 3 nights Service was terrible.The breakfast,lets just say it had some orange juice, I think. Room smell was hard to describe.Checked another room ,it was just as bad but different smell. Bed was a thin mattress of foam material.Very uncomfortable Front desk did not seem to be concered about complaints,which were numerous. Will not stay there again. Recommend that it be taken from your listings. I say this because this is the first trip that I have made to the Far East using your service and I understand that you cannot know everything about the accomidations in each country unless you have someone to tell you how they are.
Cheap but a few cockroaches. I like the location and the White Plate restaurant is nice. Aging
the good service render by the front counter staffs and the bellboy. not easily to locate the hotel as most of the taxi driver couldn't find it and also has to minute walk to the main road to flag a taxi as this hotel is located in the small road.
The Cafe and staff No wi-fi access
Checking out. Not safe, hotel or neighborhood, terrible location, no taxi could find it with a map. no inside lock on door. staff inspects every time you go out--no problem but they left door open even after 3 requests. Shower ridiculously too small--like showering in the Pope mobile. No bathroom floor mats. Two pages of rules, do's n' don't's to sign and agree to extra fees for infractions... after you check in. Cafe wayyyy overprice-- extra charge if you have food delivered, or if you bring take-out (maid checks trash can and reports it). Big promo sign offering free bkfst for 3-day stay, but did not get. When I inquired they ignored me like it didn't matter. no trash can in bathroom, only warning sign to use it. extremely rude on check-in.
The ladies at the front desk tried their best...but it wasn't enough I booked this hotel because of the location and because they said there was a pool. Guess what? THERE IS NO POOL. When I brought this up at check in, their reaction was "well we don't have anything to do with that." Other noteworthy failures: smell is pretty bad. They are currently doing construction, so there was hammering next door. I had my laundry "rushed" but it didn't come back for two days. The front desk ladies were kind enough to not charge me double for the "rush." You think? I was horribly disappointed by this place. There are 5-8 other hotels in the area that are better for the money.
