If you want to explore Ermita and Intramuros etc this is a great hotel to choose. The rooms are clean and small but are really cheap and as we were out sightseeing and shopping all day it was ideal for us. From this hotel there are a number of nice restaurants (Casa Armas was great for tapas and sangria) around and a few really cheap drinking dens. If you come out of the hotel, turn right and then take your first right then turn right again on to the main road there are places where you can sit and people watch and get a San Miguel for Php35 in what is a basic place but it is great. The huge Robinson mall is also very close with lots of shopping, restaurants and a cinema etc.
The affiliated Mollys bar is a must for breakfast. Great food and good atmosphere. When we were there it was a bit quiet at night though but still a good beer.
