My wife and two daughters stayed here twice when on family business in Manila. The room rate includes free breakfast and in room WiFi (which the girls REALLY enjoyed. The spacious and ornate lobby was decked out beautifully for Christmas. The front desk staff and bellmen were efficient, courteous and well informed. The hotel does charge 1000PHP to your folio...

I checked into the hotel due to being stranded by Typhoon Ruby. My normal hotel down the street was booked, so I took this one. It looked OK--nothing amazing, but OK. The problem was with the outdoor rock venue right outside the window of my room. It started up at around 9:00 or so and did not stop until 3:00...

I found staff to be helpful and the hotel provided what I wanted. Original room in annex clean but noisy so moved to room in main building. New room was quiet and acceptable standard. it's not a deluxe hotel and if that is what you want then go elsewhere. A good basic hotel

If you are headed to Puerto Galera, the C-Kat bus leaves from the hotel each morning at 0830 and gets you to Batangas pier...

They kept me waiting longer than they told me. I understand that every hotel needs time to clean their rooms to give good service.
