This hotel has been reviewed a lot, so just a couple of minor additions... I loved the hotel. It was cheap, I liked the balcony, the rooms were nice. The location is meh.
I had a cruise ship parked outside 3/4 days, but there weren't any noise issues at all. The rooms at the end of the hotel (it's the southern end, i had room 216 i think) have views that are largely unobstructed by the big boats.
It's a looong walk to Old Town (and a little uphill), I would take the bus always. If you buy tickets from the kiosk across the street it's a little cheaper. On the return, get off the stop BEFORE the hotel or you'll take a ride to the bus station. My airport bus was willing to drop me off in front of the hotel.
I thought the hotel restaurant was excellent, and it's cheaper than Old Town for sure. This makes up for the fact that there aren't many restaurants around the hotel. If you take a long-ish walk across the harbor to Lapad, there are many restaurants there. There's a pharmacy nearby as well as a supermarket at the roundabout. Down the road towards Old Town there's a little shopping center with a popular cafe. It's a quick walk to the main bus station (10 min. or so with luggage).
The wifi was a little iffy at times but no serious issues. There's a computer in the lobby for use. The breakfast was good, but sometimes it gets crowded due to groups.
