We only stayed here one nigh, but that was more than enough to make a great impression.
Given the rates they charge, this place is tough to beat in value. Yes, it's not exactly backpacker affordable, but that's not whom it caters to.
The included breakfast is buffet style and is quite generous. I also found the coffee to be much batter than expected, and I wasn't expecting bad coffee either.
The views from the restaurant and the roof bar really are great and are probably the best in the area. Definitely in Intramuros.
If I'm ever back in Manila, this is where I'm staying.
ProTip: book well in advance as we were barely able to get a room with two week notice during the low season.
