A basic but nice and clean room. I stayed for two weeks. Requested and transfer to a bigger room after my 1st week. I feel relax and comfortable. Since its pandemic, No amenities and housekeeping, in which I find it more private. Kind and hospitable crew. Very near in restaurants and shopping malls. Be back next with my family. Very affordable priced. Highly Recommended.

Well I ended up here because booked in paco park oasis hotel, but rather brutally ignored and or overbooked they put as here. Well what to say rather lively neighborhood read not really safe at all. Rooms dated and extremely smelling of mold or I dont know but not nice at all. The pool on the 9th floor is a joke like a bathtub but with dirty water avoid please. Food was ok as long you pay was the only positive thing, the included breakfast biggest joke ever 4 half slices of toasted white bread 2 half slices of horrible cheap sweet ham plus scambled eggs the size from a quial egg maybe, and instant coffee said enough.

We had to stay extra nights in Manila due to unforeseen circumstances. We found V Hotel to be a safe haven in a crazy place. The staff are lovely and showed us rooms first. They are basic but clean and quiet and comfy. Price is average but great breckie included in quaint restaurant on floor. Best Cafe across road for authentic Philippines and cooking...

I'm guilty. I have a dumb friend. I told her to book any hotel except V Hotel and she did the exact opposite.

V Hotel is garbage.

1. They still lie about having in-room Wi-Fi when, in fact, it's only available either in their tiny lobby with one sofa or in their restaurant that closes at 10 pm.

2. Their room air conditioning still has temperature settings which do not function. There are only two settings which do function: (a) Hot as Hell Off and (b) Arctic Circle On.

3. Still no in-room safes or inside door locks. They do have the ancient style bank security boxes at reception you can use, but anything much larger than a cell phone or paperback book will not fit and the snarky receptionist will tell you to go away.

4. They are still thieves. There's a reason why when you use your credit card to pay for your meal in their cafe the girl takes your card and disappears for ten minutes before returning to swipe your card on the POS machine that was at the check-out register all along. Unsurprisingly, 15 minutes later the credit card issuers calls and asks if after eating at V Hotel if five minutes later we also booked tickets from Manila to Turkey.

5. It's still located in one of the heaviest prostitute-infested areas of Manila. On the plus side, however, it's fun in the V Hotel elevator listening to an endless stream of 60-year-old guys trying to solicit underaged hookers.

This hotel is crap. You are better off finding a way to get arrested and sleeping a night in jail.

Our 2nd time of stay, 1st it was good,but just now my daughters ended up having a skin allergy.when I saw the pool,I already noticed that water is blurred, my daughter even said that the water looks like a vinegar..it was only about 5mins after I paid & I want to backout.. however my daughters got disappointed because we don't have other place to go for swimming & its their last day for semestral vacation.. so we ended pursuing our stay today.. until just 3hrs of swimming.my 2daughters now have their skin allergy that obviously came from their pool.but in fairness d employees are kind & the room is clean..but d reason of our stay here had just ruined as tomorrow we'll just have our bfast & leave.. so disappointed.

If you are looking for one of the crappiest hotels in Metro Manila, you will find it at V Hotel on Adriatico Street in Malate. The only reason it is not THE worst, to be fair, is because in spite of a myriad of other dishonesty, defects and problems, at least it is relatively clean and not roach & rat infested ... yet.

The #1 issue at V Hotel is that management and reception staff are prolific liars. Start by looking at previous reviews and follow up comments by the hotel's general manager giving what we now know is a lame apology and a cynical promise to remedy the issues only to see at least nine months later the same abhorrent issues persist. Total dishonesty and deception is also evident in their room descriptions given not only on their own Website, but also the Websites of their booking partners such as Hotels.com.

Check in went smooth enough until they asked for payment on a pre-paid room. That cleared up, they then asked for an approximately $25 deposit as guarantee. Guarantee for what I have yet to determine and although the hotel's Website and listing on Hotels.com indicates a credit card can be used for guarantee, the fact is that they will only accept either cash in local currency or a passport. Once in the room, which at a cursory glance seems not even nearly worth $120 per night, the first challenge was finding the WiFi network; there is none. Although the hotel claims to have free in-room WiFi, the fact is that WiFi is available only at the first floor reception area, which had limited seating, or in the mezzanine cafe, which closes at 10 pm. Strangely enough, though, you can see WiFi routers installed in most hallways, but they are not turned on. I asked the reception staff member and his reply was that they had in-room WiFi until disrupted by Typhoon Glenda in July 2014. I doubt the truthfulness of that claim since complaints of no in-room WiFi are prevalent on Trip Advisor well before Glenda. Interestingly, on subsequent days even WiFi in the reception area was unavailable presumably turned off to drive traffic to the mezzanine cafe.

Since it was already after midnight, the plan was to drink something, wash up and get to sleep. This is the only hotel I have ever seen where they do not offer a bottle or two of free water per room or at least have drinks and snacks available for in-room purchase. On their Website they do state our "superior" room had a refrigerator and, to be fair, it did have one, but not only was it not stocked with anything, it didn't even work. Although plugged in, not once during our stay did the refrigerator actually get even minimally chilled.

The bathroom. Amenities in the bathroom consisted of a tiny bar of crudely made homemade soap and two sachets of Rejoice shampoo. The two sachets were actually cut from a four-sachet sheet which retails for five pesos ($0.12). There were two towels, either one would have been a good bath towel ... for your average sized midget or 8-year-old child. There is a barely noticeable sign in the bathroom advising caution because the floor is slippery when wet. In fact, the floor is deadly with nothing more than a few water droplets that ultimately fall from washing your hands in the sink. Use extreme caution or, better yet, get a better hotel.

The hotel Website states that superior rooms have a bay view. Presumably that would require the rooms to be on a higher floor since the hotel is several blocks from the bay. My superior room had an enchanting view of a beggar and prostitute infested busy in-land street. Although the hotel is conveniently located near Robinsons Mall and the US Embassy, it seems to be even more conveniently located within a centralized bar and nightclub area saturated with prostitutes and child beggars. The disco music and traffic noise continues to well past 4 am. Fortunately the room air conditioner makes so much noise that the outside noise is not so noticeable.

Before you retire for the night, a prudent individual locks the doors, no? Oh, wait ... there is no real lock! Sure, there's the standard deadbolt that can be opened by key from the outside, but the chain lock you use to prevent -- or at least hinder -- housekeeping from entering when you sleep late is half missing. The chain is there, but there's no place to latch it to so it's exclusive function is just to hang there dangling.

Another thing you might do before you sleep is to lock your travel documents, iPad and excess cash / credit cards in the room safe. The hotel does have a room safe, right? I mean, are there any hotels these days that don't? Well, V Hotel most certainly does not! They only have safety deposit boxes at reception and even then they are of the old bank variety which means anything wider than a paperback book will not fit -- certainly not your iPad. Your iPad either stays in your room susceptible to theft while you are out and about all day, or you lug it around with you where it is also susceptible to theft and torrential rains.

Sleeping is an issue. Once you get accustomed to the noise of the air conditioner, the next hurdle is choosing between too options: roasting in hell or freezing to death in Arctic temperatures. The air conditioner control unit pretends to be a thermostat which can control not only temperature but air conditioner fan speed. In reality no matter what setting you use for fan speed the speed is the same: fast & noisy. The temperature setting is also a scam. Regardless of setting, you get the same Arctic chill. I suppose you could just pull up the blanket and weather it out, but the blanket is nothing more than a fuzzy sheet. Remember, two options!

To be fair, the bed was ok. For a superior room the bed is supposed to be queen size, according to the Website. While the actual bed in the room is wide enough for two people, if you are of average height by Western standards you feet will dangle. Only a circus midget, though, would consider the bed queen size.

The reception staff are nice enough, but either not empowered to offer solutions or not terribly motivated. They did suggest talking with the manager who, for I suppose obvious reasons, remained elusive during our stay.

At the mezzanine there is a cafe. Breakfast is served here and, if you remember, it's the only place to encounter WiFi. Cafe staff are nice and friendly. Don't ask for a Coke, though. Food seemed good enough and prices decent -- not excessively inflated like room prices. The chicken poppers were good. You can never go wrong with a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. Unfortunately they don't have orange juice, but there are a variety of other drinks. Oh, the chef likes garlic. The cafe was decidedly the best thing about the hotel.

After a couple of days exploring Manila, you might want to take advantage of the laundry facilities. Surprise, surprise! There is no laundry. Yes, I know, I should now realize that the Website was written by a pathological liar, but it does state that there is a guest laundry. A less deceptive statement would be that there is a commercial laundry facility you can find by crossing the street, turning right, then take your first left and walking down about 100 meters. They charge by weight and two days of dirty clothes for one person cost 102.00 pesos. Cash only.

For what it's worth, I have reviewed another Manila hotel which is in the general vicinity of V Hotel. While not great, it's light years better and even more moderately priced.

So, now what lessons have we learned? There are various:

1. Avoid V Hotel like the plague unless you are exclusively interested in alcoholic binges and cheap hookers ... and even then;

2. V Hotel in Manila has got to be one of the crappiest and most deceptive hotels I've ever encountered;

3. Don't expect V Hotel management or staff to even try and make things right;

4. Don't expect Hotels.com to care either;

5. Never pay in cash. Always use a credit card. Always. Why? Because when you've been swindled by the likes of V Hotel, your particular credit card association's chargeback facilities are your friend. ;)

P.S. FWIW, V Hotel is the old Rainbow Pacific Suites Hotel, which also had a strong, well-deserved reputation as being crappy.

The place is very accessible, it was near the church, bars, restaurant, and convenient stores. But service was so far disappointing. We book the hotel through an agent, we informed in advance that we were three adults in the room. We checked in late around 6pm but to my surprise our room has not been set-up, the bathe room door keeps on locking up, the cable reception is so bad and there is only one elevator so you have to wait minimum one minute for you to go up or down.

They don't have option for drinks in their breakfast menu. Since we are not coffee drinkers, we ask for other option aside from coffee and the response we get is that we have no other choice, so we settled for water to satisfy our breakfast time.

Although we had fun with in the swimming pool area, we we're ask to not use it for two hours in the evening because other guest is using it for "wedding proposal'. Well fair enough, we understand, because the swimming pool area is so small, it can only accommodate 4-6 person.

All in all, if you are looking for a place to stay for a night that is near MOA, Luneta, Star City and Baywalk, you can settle for this hotel.

Response from VHotelManila, General Manager at V Hotel
Responded 26 Dec 2013
We truly appreciate you staying in our Hotel and we give importance to all guest comments and/or suggestions that we receive. We know that every remark or observation we get can truly help us improve our services more. We usually set-up extra beds upon arrival / check-in of our guests. We make sure that a certain room has been assigned already. We do this to avoid selling the room with three beds to a different guest. Unfortunately, we do have only one elevator. Maybe in the near future should V Hotel expand, that we could add one more to make guest lifts faster. We also offer a variety of drinks for our complimentary breakfast. Aside from coffee, we also have juice and a variety of flavorful teas. We would appreciate it, if you could let us know the name or even the description of the server who assisted when you placed your breakfast order. Rest assured, we have addressed all concerns to their respective Department Heads. We are looking forward to having you here again at V Hotel. Sincerely, The Management

Very basic. Elevators and walk ways were too small. I don’t feel I’m safe. Beds squeaking if move and getting up. I guess that’s what you get for the price.🙄
Breakfast wasn’t good. If you’re an early person you have to wait. 7:30am or 8 am.

Images in the postings are the opposite. We planned to stay overnight but end up leaving just after having dinner. The room is smelly, smells like wet cabinets that did not dry off well. Corridor is too narrow and only 1 elevator. If you are used to staying in 4-5 star hotel, this is not for you. It might be better to go to Go Hotel or Hop Inn for the same price if you just need a place to sleep overnight.
