Let’s start with the positives. This hotel is strategically located nearby several public transport links, fast-food restaurants, and convenience stores. It is not overly expensive and the staff are friendly.
However, as you would expect from a three-star hotel, the standard rooms are underwhelming and incredibly basic. The bedsheets are stained and heavily used, the air conditioning is loud and outdated, and the pathetically slow internet is intermittent at best.
The hotel is in a highly impoverished area so you can’t walk more than a few steps without seeing homeless people lying semiconscious in the street or begging for spare change. The food is mediocre and offers little variety so you’re better off heading to the nearby fast-food joints or minimarts for meals and snacks.
If you’re on a budget and simply looking for a place to sleep while exploring Manilla, this is the hotel for you
