The only reason I gave this hotel a average is because of its location... The location of this hotels makes it easy to walk to restaurants, mall and to the nightlife. The hotel is for sure a no frills hotel. You will not get anything extra. The beds are very hard and the pillows are thin. If you would like an extra pillow it will cost you 30php per day. We didn't have good luck with the Internet. It would work for a bit then not work. The fridge had to be pulled out each time that we wanted to turn the tv on because you had to unplug it for a few seconds before you attempted to turn it on. Not a lot of channels available on the tv. The bed does not come with a comforter, only a sheet. My husband likes to run the air all night so I was cold. Ask for a blanket and got a sheet. We did have roaches and ants in the bathroom. The water pressure in the shower is not the greatest. Made it very hard to wash my hair.
The big problem that we had at this hotel was the light coming into the room. Other rooms were the same. The lights from the common area shined in the room all night. It made it look like it was daylight outside which made it difficult to sleep. The noise from the stairwell was heard all night as well. We were in room 301. We actually check out some rooms around us and they were the same.
I needed to dry my hair but no hair dyer was available. You must bring your own soap/ shampoo because it is not provided. Drinking water is not provided in the room either. This hotel is not handicapp accessible. There is no elevator. Rooms are small.
The staff was always friendly and helpful although many times they were asleep behind the counter. Not a hotel I would go back to because of the poor sleep quality that we got.
