I have stayed in Malate at least once a year for the last 10 years. After experiencing worsening conditions at the Swagman Hotel I was looking for another hotel in the area for accommodation. This hotel is just around the corner from the Swagman. The rooms are neat, tidy and clean with the basic amenities provided. The cost is around 2000 pesos a night which is reasonably for what you are getting. The food is tasty but the proportions provided are less than what one would expect if you come from the 'States' or Australia. This is an area they really need to improve on if they want people to eat in.
If you want to eat out try the "Cowboy Grill" nearby. This is one of the best Grills in Manila if you like good bands with a nice atmosphere.
Staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. A small bar is found on the ground floor with a pool table provided. The hotel will arrange transport to the airport for around 350 pesos. While this is reasonable you should be able to get to the airport for around 250 pesos or less in a ,metered taxi.
