I recently stayed at the swagman Having been there 3 months earlier I had expected . Unfortunately I had quite the opposite. We stayed in the 7th floor and as a result we had problems with our shower ... We had no hot water and a very low flow due to how high we were staying . There were cockroaches... More

This hotel is practical when it comes to the cost and location. It is near US Embassy, Robinsons Place Manila, UP Manila, PGH, and many more. Compared to other hotels in the same location, this is a cheaper accommodation. I recommend this for those who have appointments at US Embassy as this is very close to the hotel. They also... More

Well, I spent more time at the Swagman in July and September. My July visit was great. Got picked up at the airport and had a decent room. The only problem was getting the shower water hot. The breakfast buffet was good and I took the Swagman Shuttle to Angeles with no problem. September was a different story. The room... More

Cheap and cheerful, with Aussie theme. Is in a downtown area with beggars, so take a cab for small change to the G-Point Smorgasbord. Had grief from taxis - they all wanted my fare - but generally, was pleased with the Swagman for the price I paid. Saw some miserable sights in the neighbourhood, but it's Manila. Good value at...

I visited twice this year in May and July. The free pickup from the airport is a real plus so there is no need to fight the traffic and deal with cabs. I understand the establishment was sold and the new owners have made some very noticeable upgrades. Most impressive was the change to the dining area, the staff is... More

I can't think of a good thing to say about this place - the food and rooms are quite simply disgusting. The customers are all old and sad in transit to Angles which should tell you everything you need to know.

I just decided to switch to Swagman because of the airport shuttle, but I strongly regret that I did. Fortunately I have to stay there only 2 nights. The elevator does not work for days, they gave me a room "only" on floor 4, so I had a sportsy exercise walking the stairs up and down. The room has no... More
