    You get what you pay for

    I didn’t expect much from the hotel, since I only needed a place to stay in the area. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. I noticed that the lobby didn’t have any airconditioning. When I got to my room, the furnishing was very basic, with crooked cabinet doors and creaking headboard. There was a toothbrush packaging left at the base of the sink maybe from a previous occupant. Air-conditioning was a window-type model, which was working well, but couldn’t handle the heat coming in from the windows spaces (not insulated). The ad said there would be a Queen-sized bed, but I was surprised to see 2 single beds joined together. I hurt my knee on the wooden bed frame in between the beds. The wifi was almost non-existent. I actually chose this hotel over another one because they claimed there was free in-room wifi.

    Such a modern feel to the building. The rooms were big enough with a good size wardrobe and cupboard space to store food and drinks. Housekeeping did a great job, and breakfast was delivered warm and on time.

    Nice location close to huge SM Lazaro shopping mall w/big supermarket, food court, ETC, biggest Quiapo and Divisoria markets. Super clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. Impressed by high quality staff servicing needs and interests of every client, helping to find directions, recommended favorite landmarks, point of interests, any special needs. Especially friendly, attentive and helpful Reynalyn and Aylin. Hotel owner checking and working on satisfaction of each client, solving any questions and problems in timely manner. Excellent working amenities like kitchen, A/C, restroom, ETC. I'd recommend this beautiful hotel to anybody looking for comfort and great services.

    Budget Stay

    There are roaches in the room. The toilet door auto locked by itself which freaked me out. The area around the hotel is kinda dirty. Spot a lot of dog poos.

    Decent but very small rooms

    The staff when you check in is nice and the rooms and hotel is pretty clean. Comfort is not much. The first room was so small I was not sure what to do with my suitcase so I had them upgrade me to the larger room which was bigger but very plain. I was okay for one night but would not care to stay very long.
