Recommended to me by a local this is a great hotel. I believe the Lotus Garden Hotel just a few yards down Mabini Street is part of the same group.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff were great. We had a one bedroom suite. We were in the old wing and the bathroom was a little small with the shower above a small bathtub. I am told the rooms in the newer wing have walk in showers and bigger bathrooms.
The room had an electronic safety deposit box. There was free wifi. The included breakfast was good with eggs cooked to order.
Robinsons Mall is a short walk away with a plethora of restaurants and ATMs. I also walked to Ocean Park and Rizal Park. I had read reports in Tripadvisor of gangs of children mugging tourists in the area. No sign of that and I felt perfectly safe walking back to the hotel at 9pm from Robinsons (I am not one for late nights).
It took about 20 minutes by taxi to get to the hotel from Terminal One of NAIA using Roxas Boulevard at midday.
The only very slight negative when checking in were the two guests being served in front of me. One older and one middle aged obese western gentlemen. After negotiating with reception over the room rate they were given their respective keys by the attractive receptionist. The younger man leant over the counter so his face was only a few inches from the receptionists and leered "This room is going to be the lovenest". Completely unnecessary and to her credit the receptionist was not physically sick and just maintained her smile and ignored the slime ball. Thankfully I did not see these two specimens again.
