Hotels in Manila are quite expensive, so although the price of this hotel seems a little high at first, when compared to the others it's considered quite reasonable.
Rooms are relatively clean, however, the fridge in our room (deluxe, for three people) was really gross inside. Bedsheets look a little old. Basic amenities are available: phone, TV etc. Hotel was located about 40 mins away from Ninoy Aquino airport (and the cab driver charged us 100 pesos per person (we had five people), which was way too expensive. And the driver had difficulty finding the hotel- he had to stop several times to ask for directions. And one major drawback of this hotel is that there's no lift, but given that it's just a three-storey hotel, it would be quite a loss for them if they had a lift.
Staff was friendly and the security guards are extremely helpful- they open doors for you and help you carry your luggage to your rooms. Didn't try out the restaurant in the hotel but the food is quite expensive. There are many Asian restaurants nearby selling Chinese, Korean and Japanese food. It is also about 10 to 20 minutes walk away from the Robinsons mall nearby.
Malate is quite lively at night as there are many nightclubs and pubs around. However, it would be quite dangerous to wonder around at night as there are many weird people lurking around.
Overall, the hotel is valued for money as compared to others in Manila.
