Finally there is a decent budget hotel in Malate.
However, not a good start for me. I book through a booking site and I wrote an email to them to check my reservation. They never reply my email. So points deducted.
You will be given the number of towels of your stay. For me, I got 4 towels since I book a double bed as they assume there will be two guest. Youi will be given an electronic key where you need it to access the lift and the room and also to turn on the utilities inside the room. You will need to remember to ask the staff to give you the password to access the wi-fi.
The room assigned to me is on the 7th level. Room is tiny but still decent. There are no bath amenities like towels. The shampoo and soap is pack together with the towels inside the bag.
Water pressure is good but the hot water is a little weak but still acceptable. Room is clean and all the electrical points and lights are working fine. There is actually a folding table for your use.
There is a electronic safe which I like it a lot. Riveria Mansion charge a night stay at P2150 but does not have a room safe.
