BWLC is as good a hotel in this price range as you will find in Ermita. I have stayed there many times, and have tried other hotels when unable to get a room in time.
The staff is extremely friendly and competent.
Most of the rooms are a bit dated but kept very clean.
Very good breakfast buffet spread consisting of both Western and local dishes.
Only two issues, one of which for me is a major annoyance - most of the rooms now have TINY minibar fridges that simply do not get the drinks inside cold enough. Slightly chilled, yes. But not as cold as they need to bend they no not have temp regulators. So every time I come back to the hotel from the heat outside I have to ask for a bucket of ice from the restaurant - which is free and takes care of the problem for a few hours until that ice has been used up or melted. I would really encourage that management install an ice machine somewhere in the hotel (maybe a middle floor?) so guest don't have to needlessly keep bothering the restaurant staff.
The other issue is that SOME of the rooms have VERY dark, not well lit bathrooms. Especially the ones with dark brown tiling. These need additional light fixtures or brighter bulbs.More
