I stayed here 6 nights and relative to the price of $33.00 a night, breakfast and taxes included was an excellent deal.
The property is not fancy but well kept and clean
I had a small room, they call it Petite room with a 24 inch TV and the AC worked well.
Bathroom was simple and clean (No extra towels or coffee machine).
They have a very large stuff and are kept busy. There are around 10 workers around midnight, cleaning windows, wall, floor, etc. and they are always courteous to customers.
Smoking is not allowed in the room and if discovered there is a penalty of about one night room cost. They have 4 patio tables facing the street, where I sometime ordered coffee from them or I bought my own water bottles from a 7 Eleven store and smoked there.
Ermita is not a classy neighborhood but found no problems or perception of problems.
It's about 1 block from Rizal Park, 3 blocks from Robinson shopping center, 2 blocks from the Manila Pavillion Casino (a former Hilton property? and 3 blocks from the LRT station (Light rail transit, an above ground mass rapid system), you can pretty much go around metro Manila with the system. One way = 15 pesos or .33 cents US
Summary.- If you are like me that can not stand low standard but not pursuing a 4 or 5 star quality hotel and price then Casa Bocobo is an excellent choice.
I highly recommend it.
Note : The room had a double bed and the price covered for 2 people with breakfast.
I am glad I read the reviews from tripadvisor while booking this hotel.
