Hotel is old but that is no excuse to be dirty. i got some kind of rashes after I stayed there, and it must be their beddings. There is also some construction going on so dust was everywhere, and their corridors are grimy and dinghy.

I arrived in march 2016 to this hotel because a friend booked it for us. He said it has been refurbished recently and got new silent A/C machines. The room is 203 one of the cheaper ones as there is no lift to this first floor. It is a twin room with toilet ensuit, very decent WIFI and cable TV....

The hotel is old and needs improvements but the semi suite room was large and comfortable. The staff are friendly but the wood cupboards were eaten with ants and will crumblet soon. The location is very good with close proximity to different restaurants, Robinson mall and the night bars of Mango square.Safety cabinet in the room and good wifi service.

Good bed, large room with Wifi, fridge and code-safe, quite (once you got used to the aircon). An easy walk to Mango and Robinson passing some beggars. Jeepneys passing Ramos street all go downtown via Colon.

Decent rooms but stay away from The restaurant. We waited 40 mins for food that was supposed to take 15 minutes but in The end never showed up. The room was as expected but nothing wrong there. You could See that it was old but it didn't matter. 3/5

It's a very old rundown hotel, but it could be better maintained. The rooms are dark & gloomy. The towels have stains, and the bathroom door have some holes on one side. The rooms could stand better cleaning & repair. Internet is alright, but has share limits, which is not practical, since we all carry at least 3 gadgets each....

This hotel needs a major renovation. Everything in it is old and dilapidated. Although, for budget conscious travelers, this is of good value since it is close to the city center. Rooms need to be sound-proofed and the aircon should be replaced since it is very noisy which can interfere with a good night sleep.
