We just stayed overnight at a Deluxe Bedroom of Salcedo Suites last April 8 to 9, 2013. Initially we are happy because it has a lower rate as compared to other nearby hotels in which we have stayed in.
However, we had a few disappointments on the day that we have stayed there.
Free parking spaces advertised on their website are actually 2 parking slots for their entire guests. To be specific, slot numbers 8 and 20 on the 4th Floor of a very narrow and steep drive up to these first come - first serve slots.
The hotel lobby and elevators are not well ventilated. The elevator sometimes malfunctions (i.e. when we pressed 23F, we were brought up to the 24F!) Even the other guests on the same elevator who needed to go to the 23F were shocked that it failed to stop there. Thus, we pressed 23F again and good thing the elevator went one floor down that time.
The room (and the old refrigerator in it) smells really old. A little airfreshener or tough cleaning might prevent this. Unlike other hotels and serviced residences, the plates,glasses and other utensils are not readily available in your room kitchen shelves/drawers. They are all free for you to use but you need to request for each of these by calling on the reception desk. (Not convenient, right?) And of course, if utensils are not provided right ahead, expect that the refrigerator is turned off and empty (no mini bar even if your are willing to pay for the expected goods).
Also, there are small cockroaches inside the room.
The water pressure is another issue in our room. The water pressure from the kitchen faucet is okay but definitely not in the bathroom faucet and shower.
Here are the only good things that I like in this hotel:
Very fast check in procedures even rate computation is manual (calculator not computer) and handwritten/filled up Official Receipt (not computer printed).
Local calls (within Metro Manila) are free of charge unlike in other nearby hotels.
Sufficient clothes hangers are available inside the cabinets.
TV is equipped with Skycable.
Hot shower is available (although water pressure is so poor in our room).
Accessible location and near restaurants, cafes, convenience stores and food chains.
I do hope that the owner of this hotel would consider renovating it and acquire more parking space slots in the building.
