The hallways are marble encrusted and the staff is of course very helpful. The breakfast was very good and you get free room service for breakfast. The location is very good as its easy to go where ever you want to in Manila. A great hotel for a single guy or possible non-conservative couple coming to Manila. They add a 10% room service charge for the non breakfast food but there's no option to get it yourself. Also I had an incident where I ordered a chicken sandwich. The sandwich was gross and didn't look like the picture. I had to fight with my partner for them not to charge me for it. The area is shady. Even though its a good area for access to transport the area is known for prostitution and this hotel supports it by charging hourly rates.
We like the location of the hotel, which is within a shopping mall building with restaurants. The facility is a newer 2 to 3 star hotel. However, the hotel charges guests for missing or dirty face towels at an unreasonable price. We were charged 1,000 pesos for three missing face towels and one face towel with a stain that is washable. I can buy those ordinary face towels for 10 pesos each. Summit hotel - because you want 200 pesos for a face towel, we will not recommend you.
Friendliness of staff. Safety measurements taken by Hotel. Proximity to Shopping Mall giving options for lunch and dinner. Rooms will need refurbishment pretty soon.
i very much appreciated your upgrading me to a corner room which i have enjoyed during a previous visit (room 909). for several years i stayed elsewhere in manila because i did not like the room assigned to me. but this time i was very happy -- thank you. no complaints...i was very happy at the EDSA shangri-la this visit.
Long line breakfast buffet; needs renovation at the lobby
Nice and clean...It is really 5 stars hotel. The food of breakfast is so so...
I could not say anothing bad about my stay. It is my favorite hotel in Manila. We showed up 4 hours early and was able to get a room hours before check in time. I was also upgraded to a better room since they ran out of regular rooms for us. The guess relations person who helped us was very helpful and pleasant. We had a great stay and the Chi spa was an awesome experience. Though it was on the expensive side, it was well worth it. Bit on the expensive side.
Very good breakfast and gym. Very friendly personal. The booking price was given in U.S. dollars but final settlement can only be done in pesos (PHP). This becomes a problem when the hotel uses an exchange rate of 50 (correct official rate is about 46 - the official exchange rate at the front desk is about 47 something). I spent a lot of time arguing about why I would not just pay an additional 50 US$ for my stay because of this - I had to discuss it 3 times until it was eventually fixed, but I was very late for my plane because of it (even though I had gone twice before checking out to make sure it was ok!). This is my only complaint about the hotel which is otherwise very good. Just make sure you do not pay overprice because of the exchange rate also.
The location. I was the only one in the front desk - and the gentleman did not even ask me if I need anything. I had to ask him if he can help me to check-in - very unprofessional. We checked in to room 726 - kept coughing and sneezing in the middle of the night due to the a/c filter was so filthy. Finally turned it off and the coughing and sneezing stopped. Went to frontdesk, and had maintenance check it out - I even took a picture of the filter. He kept insisting that it's clean even you can see how filthy it is with your naked eye. He won't admit that it's so dirty - I did not bother to argue. I do not recommend this hotel at all!
Elevator..it easy to go up to the room...clean..free breakfast..the room and toilet clean..
too long to check out other than that nice stay for the price also they charged too much money for transfer to airport
Nice and peaceful I told front desk to change blankets on the bed and they didn't change it, very disappointed on there service
The staff compensates for the poor faciliy. The only up side in this hotel is the desire of their staff to make up for the poor hotel condition. I would rate their staff A. However, the rooms have really disturbing issues. 1. Chairs and beds are worn out and the carpet have evidence of molds growing in them. The toilet pluming is old and often have the danger of clogging up. 2. The corridor carpets have evidence of molds growing in them as well. 3. The management of this hotel clearly must have serious capital issues as their hotel needs serious renovation ,not to mention,major cleaning up operation to make their hotel safe for guest. 4. This hotel will not pass under US standards and will most likely be shut down for health hazard conditions. Definitely not recommended for ASTHMATIC,COPD or people taking immuno suppressant drugs.
Thank you vayama Noghing
Courteous staff, clean room and facilities, trustworthy parking attendants, very reasonable prices, location close to U.S. Embassy, reasonable "hotel service car" prices to the airport (600 pesos). Slow elevator service, tinted window in rooms is old and distorted, which ruins the view of the ocean front.
I like the vicinity to the embassy Everything was fine for the money
clean room, friendly staff, nearness to coffee shops and 7-11 drink prices in mini fridges, but most hotels charge that. 7-11 right around the corner open 24
Proximity to embassy. Restaurant downstairs was good and room service was prompt. Location was less than 5 minutes to embassy and with traffic one hour from international airport. Cleanliness, seemed tone lacking in general it's needing better upkeep and detailing. Near the road so you hear a bit of traffic at all hours. Walls are thin so if your a light sleeper you could be woke up from the knocking next door.
- Location...Near to Dr. Rizal Garden etc - Staff: So abundant in fact they can cut down. - Breakfast- Complimentary ...yet excellent with a mix of healthy aswell tasty item combinations...buffet style. - Personally speaking I don't like local [Philippine cousin] Best Western is good alternative for me. -Staff very courteous. - Bathroom had inadequate shelving for all my needs, items - Their dinner pricing was higher than surrounding eataries like McDonald, Wendy and other places. - I am always looking for best value.. It fit my budget well. No complaints.
Showers are great! Best next to the Yokohama bay Sheraton. a 2nd pillow..
THe staff could not do more for you,always polite,and very friendly,I would reconmend La corona top stay. Nothing everything was good.
Food was good and the hotel was very clean.. Staff was almost too polite, but very helpful Some of the hotel's drivers had unclear prices and were reluctant to tell me until I had arrived at my destination.. They were also far too expensive, charging me as more than triple the rate of a regular taxi. My stay would have been perfect had the drivers been more honest. To be fair this was not typical of every driver at your hotel. The drivers Ruel and Gerry were very good.. Also on another occasion I asked the driver to bring me to a regular bar but he brought me to a whore/prostitute bar instead. This was hilarious for me but I can imagine other guests becoming offended at this.
Nice small hotl with friendly staff.
My booking was correct and the service good. When I had a situation where the Aircon stopped working I was moved to another room with no problems or upset. In dealing with the problem they were quick and decisive. When I asked the Concierge if it was possible to get another pillow the young man replied that it was and he would bring it in a few minutes. No additional pillow was delivered.
Walking distance to Rizal Park, Ocean Park and Robinson Mall. Good breakfast buffet. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They need to rethink the mattress. Upgrade to pillow top or memory foam. If you like it firm it's up your alley.
Rooms are modern, clean, and large. Only one thing I would change to make the room perfect, a soft chair to relax in. Room is equipped with hard chairs like you would expect to see in a dining room.
