“This is not a family hotel -”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013 via mobile

I am a regular customer of SOGO Hotel and i think it is indeed affordable and the services is best. Foods are ok to me.

Just for everyone to know that, this is know in the Phils as a "lovers hotel" wherein people would book as short as 3 hours to do their private intimate time together.

In short, since its affordable "lovers hotel" people need to realize that its always full of couples itching for each other and would be willing to take a queue to get a room.

So please dont bring kids in any Sogo branches if you dont want them to hear scream and moans that most of the time can be clearly heard at the corridors.

- you can check in anytime and your check out is the time your hours consumed
-hot shower works ALL the time
-with anteroom for privacy
- it has 2 porn channel so let everyone aware so they wont get offended since most of the time when you turn the tv on, its on that channel!
-you pay your food to the hotel attendant once he delivers and he can give you your change right away
-understand that most of the room turn over of the guest is 3 hours, so towels, linens and blankets were heavily used
-a good wifi
- elevator get so full with all kinds of couples so please do not expose your children in here.

Stayed here with my fiance for one night. The room was small, it's not luxury by any means, but it was clean, cozy and quiet. The bed had a thin mattress but it was good for my back. Cable TV was nice. We were happy. The price was great too! Stayed here in December 2011.

Our stay was satisfactory, the Room was clean. I stayed with my family (3 kids), the food was good and it is very accessible to MOA and other sites along Roxas Blvd., a jeep ride away to Quiapo and Divisoria too, that is if you are bargain conscious, it is the right place for you and your budget.

I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel because it was the cheapest and nearest to the lecture I had to attend. I got the Executive Room.
Upside: Cheap room rates, short-time (less than 24-hrs stay accepted), near malls (Festival Mall and Star Mall), easily accessible since it is along the South Luzon Expressway, courteous and prompt staff, with hot and cold shower, check-out time is the same time as the day of check-in (eg. Check-in 5:00 PM , Check-out 5:00 PM --- not before 12:00 like most hotels) Strong airconditioning.
Downside: Old, dark and dingy (no windows) rooms. The room had unpleasant smell and if you look closely, the walls were sort of grimy (poor lighting covered it up).The bedboard had gum stuck on it. The free wi-fi service was unaccessible despite the password given. It was very noisy even in the wee hours of the morning. Not ideal for long stays, not for family.

This motel is horrible. It is more of a brothel than a motel, there were hookers hanging out in the lobby, and up and down to the rooms all night Dont let the kids play with the tv remote either, cause free porn in the rooms. There is constant noise here, whether the elevator bell echoing through the halls, or the floor staff on their radio headsets, or the doors slamming, or room service clanking dishes, or the cleaning that goes on at 3am. Good luck getting any sleep. Area and rooms are stinking filthy. There were hairs in the floor, sink, and shower of are rooms at check-in, and there was URINE ON THE TOILET SEAT. I just about about lost my lunch. Also killed at least a dozen cockroaches overnight in all parts of the room. So thankful only had to stay here overnight for a place near the airport to catch a flight. Total ripoff, total hole. Avoid at all costs, want my money back. Only good was that the wifi was good and fast in the room.

Room Tip: Don't stay here
