We came across an advertisement from this hotel that offers discount for early bookings. We managed to book via bank deposit and the process is a breeze. We booked a medium room and stayed there for 3 nights. Thank God that we only used the hotel for short naps and quick changes as the room offers no comfort on beddings... More

This hotel is good if your in transit and would like a place to dump your stuff and immediately go out. The room is very small for 1 person. Relatively clean. One disadvantage is, if there are other guests who are noisy along the corridor, you can hear their conversation loud and clear. Advantage is very close to Ayala Centre... More

Location: The best bit. Close to Ayala Center, Keppel Center and Business Park. Room: Size of Small Room is just right for one person. Clean and tidy. The only disadvantage is that the floor of the toilet and the bedroom are the same level so water always goes to the bedroom after washing or coming out of the shower when... More

This hotel advertises "Free WiFi in room" - that means a reasonable Wi-Fi signal in all rooms AND reasonable internet connection. That was key to my decisions to stay here. No need to be flash, but needs to work. At check-in "Wi-Fi works best in reception area". I got room # 14 nearest to reception (just 6 meters) - signal... More

Their orange bath towels are really old (thin, frayed and torn). Beddings are clean, but they don't smell as if they just got out of the laundry. The room is tidy, but things are wearing down and not touched-up by maintenance. The in-house apple computer in the lobby is on, but super slow. The most annoying bit is the "early... More

I was looking for a cheap place to stay (just a single bed) that is near Ayala Center that checked the essentials I need: A/C and Internet in room. For about $20 night in this area it’s tough to beat. And the place delivers with that and then some. A/C was super cold and quick, and the Internet speed is... More
