Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I quarantined at this hotel for 10 days and they delivered a very pleasant experience all throughout my stay. The ride from the airport was quick and they handled all my luggages for me until I reached my room. Check-in was very easy—I received my room card once I arrived since they had me fill out a couple of forms online beforehand. The hotel manager and staff were very accommodating and prompt with their services—everything from daily food deliveries to fulfilling additional requests. Everyone was friendly and kept me well-informed about things related to my quarantine like my swab test. They adhered to the quarantine safety protocols carefully and gave instructions that were easy for guests to follow. Overall, I think it's a really great place to stay at as you'll be well taken care of! (I also personally liked the small stuffed animal on the bed when I arrived—very cute touch!)

The room is clean and tidy, food are tasty, respectful crew,but i think management should upgrade their connection for internet. Every single person on earth needs internet. From my expirience, i stayed an hour near room door step and keeping the door cracked open just to get a good reception. Maybe my room is budgeted by the company,yet im still guest expecting for better experience though making conversation to someone, guest should feel relax communicating. All in all this hotel so better 😁

I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND. We stayed 2 nights for our wedding preparation. During the booking I sent email to their reservation and even to sales division if its possible to have a photo session in the hotel but unfortunately no one is answering the mail even the call. Then, during the check in, I asked the receptionist if its possible, the receptionist doesn't have the knowledge, he just said that we will inform tomorrow once the supervisor / manager is there, Atleast front desk should know the details. So, we waited for the next day.
During breakfast time, 1 staff confronted me telling that the person in charge was already there so I talked to the manager (just to describe her - a little chubby and managing the dining area that time). I ask her if its possible to have a photo session in the hotel even just in the staircase, she was telling to me "Yes its possible maam but you have to pay 10K pesos" I said for 30mins only and she responded, "yah even so, but if you want just book another room the most expensive room or lets meet half way, we will give you discount and pay us 5K pesos". that time I backed out, I told her no need as we don't need another room for the event since no one will use and we don't want to spend 5K for a 30mins photo session. I even asked her that "why no one is bothering to answer the call and email" she just told me that I will inform the reservation / sales for that. Wala man lang pasensya na po kung hindi kau nasagot ng reservation. Napaka-rude.

We stayed in a hotel either for business or for leisure. We prefer to do our activities at a hotel for convenience. And that’s mainly the purpose.

It will be a hassle for those who will bring their own vehicle as they do not have enough parking spaces (estimated less than 10 cars can accommodate).

As per experience. I was instructed by the guards to look for a nearby pay parking spaces and they will call me at my room when there is available.

Since it’s already night time. I decided to park my car in a mall (2kms away from the hotel).

Ang hassle!

I went there during the Chinese New Year to have a staycation. I had a well-appointed and VERY CLEAN ROOM. The turn offs are the thread-bare bath towels, missing hand towel and missing slippers. Suggest that you have at least 2 chairs in the room and print out your menu for room service instead of guests having to scan it from an app. The mini-refrigerator could be colder too.

I stayed here for an 8-day quarantine and had an absolutely comfortable stay! The room and bathroom was really clean. The food they were serving each day always hits the spot! 10 out of 10, it was tasty, just the right amount and is a well-balanced meal with veggies and fruits.
I believe the gem of this hotel is their staff. They really do their best to address my needs and were very warm and cordial. Consider Blulane if you're thinking of a quarantine hotel. Their packages are all-inclusive (yes, that includes airport pick ups, too!).

I must say I had doubts and fears regarding my quarantine stay in Manila, but because of the help and assistance I received from Ms. Linie and Mr. Perry, they all went down the drain. With the hassle-free homecoming package, I grew more at ease and confident as all my needs were well taken care of from the get-go (airport transfers to the hotel).

It is worth mentioning the amazing staff who welcomed me at the hotel. They were courteous, helpful, and had good attitude. Most importantly, they were always available and very much reliable, if I may add. Immediate attention was given to all my concerns.

The room was spacious and clean that I felt relaxed and at home. On top of that, the food was great, I especially enjoyed their merienda (snacks).

Overall, I had a wonderful quarantine stay here. I would certainly recommend this hotel to my friends who are planning to come to the Philippines. It is truly well-worth the price.

No, it's near Sta. Cruz Church. But, if you walk straight through Ongpin, you'll land right at Binondo church.

So sorry for very late response. If it's MiniStop you were referring to, yes; it's at the next street. You can find a wide variety of Chinese restaurants, dimsum shops, jewelry shops, Chinese drugstores, bookstores, bakeries, antique shops, medical and dental clinics, and a lot of specialty stores. Try the freshly pressed sugar cane juice being sold right around the corner. Old timers Mañosa and Delicious are quaint restaurants but much well-loved.
