Stayed here twice for our transit days through Manila to other parts of the country and again on the way back home. The first time we has a deluxe room the second we got an upgrade to a junior suite.
The hotel is located in Makati, one of the cleaner districts of Manila and is only a 250p metered taxi from the airport and a 100p taxi to the Greenbelt Malls (awesome shopping malls). Don't use either the pre-paid taxis from the airport or the hotel. At 650-700p each way they are both very expensive.
The deluxe room was around $50 per night, which for this neighbourhood is quite cheap. The rooms are small (or shall we say very cosy) but have everything you need for a short stay. Aircon, hot water, bar fridge, wifi and a comfy bed.
Reasonable food is available from the restaurant. Breakfast is simple but adequate considering we are not spending 200 bucks a night.
The junior suite upgrade was certainly a pleasant surprise. The room is much much bigger. Bedroom, bathroom and living space as well as a kitchenette. Definitely a much better stay, especially as we were travelling with a toddler.
Staff are friendly and helpful and always available.
I give this place 5 stars not because it is like a 5 star hotel, it isn't. But because it is what is says it is: a comfortable and cheap alternative in a great area.
If we ever come back to Manila (on our way somewhere else of course) we would not hesitate to stay here again.
