Hotel Sogo
Ranked #52 of 76 Manila B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 January 2012

This is a growing chain of discount lodging with numerous locations, twenty in Metro Manila alone. You can spot the hotels with their gaudy Red and Yellow paint. My two experiences were Edsa Pasay and Edsa Cubao. Both were extremely popular locations and extremely busy.

Sogo is first come, first served facility, no reservations. They are sucessful because they are located in high density locations, within easy reach of transportation, and are efficient in moving people in and out of their facilities.

They have individual waiting booths. Also rent by the hour, so once you pass your 24hour daily rate, check out promptly or you will be charged.


Its a mechanical operation not very personnable but efficient. So don;t expect the service and hospitality of a owner operated facility. Various rooms with various prices, locations, and condition. My two rooms didn;t have any windows but was clean and efficient, bathroom ok. Nothing to write home about. When you leave your room you to go to the lobby you must be buzzed out by staff. (part of their security standards). Somewhat disconcerning of what would happen in a fire.

I would think with such a wide and large operation you would get a wide variety of comments. It is not a first class, luxury style hotel chain. Just basic lodging and artery clogging cheap food. My rooms were quite but once you step out of the hotel (at least at my two occasions) its noisey, congested and jammed packed.

I was fortunate that my stay was just ordinary, I can imagine others with stories to tell.

After going to this hotel i am extremely disappointed with the service and cleanliness of the room. Parts of it are unswept with food and broken glass slivers. After stepping on a sliver and bleeding profusely they had no first aid equipment like betadine and cotton. Only thing they can proving in exchange to this injury was a 30 minute extention stay! Like i wanted to stay longer in the horrible place! The la paz batchoy i had was very salty even with rice! And dont expect an apology from them. For me it SOOOO LOOONG SOGO! So clean so good... Yeah right!

Stayed here last month and it was a good and clean hotel. Worth for what you pay. The location is in the centre of other night clubs is a plus point. Walking distance to shops and restaurant. You may take a tuk tuk and travel other places. Not neccessary for cabs.

Thought the hotel is up to the usual good standard of Sogo, the car parking underground leaves a lot to be desired, its like playing shuffle board getting in and out, with a steep ramp. Also very steep steps to the reception from the car park area.

Room Tip: Rooms very quiet and romantic, but access is the problem, not wheel chair friendly
