I was satisfied with the location. Walking distance from the Nationalé museum and from Intramuros.The hotel was clean
The Hotel has a victorian feel of elegance, with a large ltiled floor lobby with soft furnishings. The wide tiled stairway leads to a firstfloor balcony overlooking a courtyard, this also has soft furnishings and a snooker table, plus a cage with two love birds in the corner. two coridors left and right lead to the rooms. there is also a top floor with more rooms. This was my second stay at the hotel and we were upgraded to a similar sized room with a kitchenette, however the room had a older although well maintained aircondition unit. Unfortunately mice were getting into the room. It was very noisy first thing in the morning from staff and guests alike. The room was right next to the stairs leading to the top floor and worse still opposite the linen supply cupboard were the staff would congregate talk and chat loudly early in the morning 5:00
The staff compensates for the poor faciliy. The only up side in this hotel is the desire of their staff to make up for the poor hotel condition. I would rate their staff A. However, the rooms have really disturbing issues. 1. Chairs and beds are worn out and the carpet have evidence of molds growing in them. The toilet pluming is old and often have the danger of clogging up. 2. The corridor carpets have evidence of molds growing in them as well. 3. The management of this hotel clearly must have serious capital issues as their hotel needs serious renovation ,not to mention,major cleaning up operation to make their hotel safe for guest. 4. This hotel will not pass under US standards and will most likely be shut down for health hazard conditions. Definitely not recommended for ASTHMATIC,COPD or people taking immuno suppressant drugs.
The location. I was the only one in the front desk - and the gentleman did not even ask me if I need anything. I had to ask him if he can help me to check-in - very unprofessional. We checked in to room 726 - kept coughing and sneezing in the middle of the night due to the a/c filter was so filthy. Finally turned it off and the coughing and sneezing stopped. Went to frontdesk, and had maintenance check it out - I even took a picture of the filter. He kept insisting that it's clean even you can see how filthy it is with your naked eye. He won't admit that it's so dirty - I did not bother to argue. I do not recommend this hotel at all!
Proximity to embassy. Restaurant downstairs was good and room service was prompt. Location was less than 5 minutes to embassy and with traffic one hour from international airport. Cleanliness, seemed tone lacking in general it's needing better upkeep and detailing. Near the road so you hear a bit of traffic at all hours. Walls are thin so if your a light sleeper you could be woke up from the knocking next door.
clean room, friendly staff, nearness to coffee shops and 7-11 drink prices in mini fridges, but most hotels charge that. 7-11 right around the corner open 24
too long to check out other than that nice stay for the price also they charged too much money for transfer to airport
I like the vicinity to the embassy Everything was fine for the money
Elevator..it easy to go up to the room...clean..free breakfast..the room and toilet clean..
Nice and peaceful I told front desk to change blankets on the bed and they didn't change it, very disappointed on there service
Thank you vayama Noghing
Courteous staff, clean room and facilities, trustworthy parking attendants, very reasonable prices, location close to U.S. Embassy, reasonable "hotel service car" prices to the airport (600 pesos). Slow elevator service, tinted window in rooms is old and distorted, which ruins the view of the ocean front.
My booking was correct and the service good. When I had a situation where the Aircon stopped working I was moved to another room with no problems or upset. In dealing with the problem they were quick and decisive. When I asked the Concierge if it was possible to get another pillow the young man replied that it was and he would bring it in a few minutes. No additional pillow was delivered.
Rooms are modern, clean, and large. Only one thing I would change to make the room perfect, a soft chair to relax in. Room is equipped with hard chairs like you would expect to see in a dining room.
Food was good and the hotel was very clean.. Staff was almost too polite, but very helpful Some of the hotel's drivers had unclear prices and were reluctant to tell me until I had arrived at my destination.. They were also far too expensive, charging me as more than triple the rate of a regular taxi. My stay would have been perfect had the drivers been more honest. To be fair this was not typical of every driver at your hotel. The drivers Ruel and Gerry were very good.. Also on another occasion I asked the driver to bring me to a regular bar but he brought me to a whore/prostitute bar instead. This was hilarious for me but I can imagine other guests becoming offended at this.
Walking distance to Rizal Park, Ocean Park and Robinson Mall. Good breakfast buffet. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They need to rethink the mattress. Upgrade to pillow top or memory foam. If you like it firm it's up your alley.
Showers are great! Best next to the Yokohama bay Sheraton. a 2nd pillow..
THe staff could not do more for you,always polite,and very friendly,I would reconmend La corona top stay. Nothing everything was good.
Nice small hotl with friendly staff.
- Location...Near to Dr. Rizal Garden etc - Staff: So abundant in fact they can cut down. - Breakfast- Complimentary ...yet excellent with a mix of healthy aswell tasty item combinations...buffet style. - Personally speaking I don't like local [Philippine cousin] Best Western is good alternative for me. -Staff very courteous. - Bathroom had inadequate shelving for all my needs, items - Their dinner pricing was higher than surrounding eataries like McDonald, Wendy and other places. - I am always looking for best value.. It fit my budget well. No complaints.
Location It needs remodeling and it need cleaner carpets
breakafast buffet was superb. rooms are too old. need to renovate.
Close to airport, staff were friendly but one day, i wanted to have our room serviced but I came back before the housekeeper get to our room and the tip was gone. The guests by our room was very noisy. I don't mind if it's before 12am but they were partying until 3 to probably 4 in the morning. I couldn't get a good night rest.
Price and service Food
excellent location, friendly staff and great restaurant rooms are old fashioned and need to be renovated.swimming pool very small for a 5star hotel, better to call it a 4 star place
nothing Hotel room is dirty - bedclothes are dirty and have holes... Bathroom is not cleaned properly ( wall full of dirty stains, ceiling has mildew, towel handler has never been cleaned, bathtop is rusty etc...), 15 years old iron without water etc... i had dinner in their "Rotisserie" restaurant - same problem of cleanliness ( table cloth with stains : sauce? wine? ). I needed to wait 10 minutes to get my tea during breakfast. Internet very slow. this hotel is overpriced and shouldn't be referenced by booking.com ; so far, a very bad experience in this hotel. it doesn't worth the price ( it looks cheap but it's overpriced regarding service and cleanliness.. ). Even some 2 stars hotels are cleaner. if booking.com interested, i kept pictures.
We liked the location, very convenient to atm, food, stores. But after dark there are homeless around. View out window was good. Room size was good. Buffet was best in restaurant. (See the bad parts of this review because they FAR outweigh the good). Bad: A/C was noisy and leaked on the floor, smelled of mildew, carpet was filthy & stained, shower burnt us, hot in elevators & lobby, welcome drink so small it's a joke, room service menu missing items advertised, they charge ALOT for free local
Den fantastiske akvariumsvæg i aquarummet. Helt specielt at have en helt væg i værelset, som er et akvarium med levende fisk. Børnene syntes, at det var fantastisk. Skal man se flere fisk, ligger Manila Ocean Park lige ved siden af hotellet, og det er også en super oplevelse. Morgenmaden bød på et utrolig ringe udvalg af kun få retter filippinsk mad, og levede slet ikke op til den ellers rigtig gode oplevelse vi havde på hotellet.
location and facilities Room 202 very noisy at night, next time I want quiet room please
Nothing. Stupid hotel. Everything. Stupid hotel.
The hotel staff are courteous and nice. The location is good for city trips.
For the price of 48 USD stabdard room: a) a hearty breakfast-food was great but suggest that they switch to brewing coffee-Philippnes has one of the best arabica's from Batangas) rather than the tasteless instant variety;b) Free english newspaper;c) Relatively reliable and fast free wifi connection;d) friendly and super helpful staff;e) room large enough for a couple and possibly a kid or 2 without feeling cramped and with its own bathroom facilities (also suggest a more powerful lamp for reading as an extra) and e) Walking distance to a large swanky mall-Robinson's--all for USD 48 ! None-I got more than I paid for. In the earlier reviews, guest noted the location and its seediness. In my opinion, nothing short term can be done with poverty and its daily manifestations in Manila. The hotel is located in an older section of Manila once renowned as a red light district in the hey day of US military visiting Manila for its R and R break. Do I feel unsafe? No but using common sense anywhere one is traveling to is always a good rule be it in Baltimore, USA or in Manila, Philippines.
The location The reservation was handled very poorly.
Mr Nard is your examplery good staff.We always get right info from him.He is very polite ,respectfullness yet trustsfullness and helpfullness.He can speak Malay fluently and this is good for guests from Malaysia,Indonesia and Brunei especially the guests whose English is under parr. No complaint so far.
Was not impressed with the hotel. Water pressure was low. Noise of construction. Internet was not good.
Hotel is good but road side rooms got lot of disturbance of traffic
I liked the room I did not like the inside bar it was hard to hear yourself speak, the staff at the bar were not experienced, however the breakfast staff were great.The checkin took to long and the front desk staff were not overly helpful
Close to the Sikat-bus, which goes to Batangas/Puerto Galera The standard room was extremely noisy due to traffic and bad windows. The staff does not hesitate to lie to your face.
Close to LA Cafe I wasnt there long enough
Friendly service. Large rooms.
I definitely would recommend this hotel if you have transaction near in this area. The room is spacious. The bathroom is wide enough if you're with your family and closed to restuarant too. In our vacant time just a walking distant to Rizal Park.
Good central location in Ermita. Includes breakfast in the morning (ok quality, nothing great).
Near of St. Luke Medical Center Front desk receptionist are not willing to answer if you have a questions about the room
Close to mall and embassy. Friendly staff. Room on 6the floor and Elevator out of order
Staff was excellentComplimentary breakfast was excellent.The security outside who opened the door every hour of the day were excellent.Location was very good.The view from the patio by the restaurant was nice.The restaurant staff were very nice
the front desk staff the little roach crawling on my bed one afternoon, the small size of the room for the price
Elegant hotel Friendly staff Breakfast buffett had numerous selections Very clean room had, no problem with hot water None so far, I stay at Manila Hotel a few days per year on my vacation and business trips
Not much The carpets are dirty and needs replacements. The lights are uneven. The old charm of the hotel has vanished. It looks old rather than historic. It looks tired and at time tacky.
Breakfast buffet was great. Many selections.
Stayed at Manila Hotel 35 years ago and it was luxurious and elegant then and it still is! Breakfast buffet was more like a brunch! It was excellent, delicious but sinful ! The second time we were there it was very crowded but then considering it was a weekend, it's understandable !
Lobby was fabulous. Breakfast was fantastic. Ambiance seems like a blast from the old manila The check in counter was a bit slow in processing transactions. Bathtub draining does not work on our room. Single bed is a bit small and requires limited sleeping movement
customer service is superb! breakfast unbeatable!
A portal into old Manila with all the classic immunities one would need in any 5 star hotel.
The buffet breakfast was really good. Ms. Cruz was very helpful. When you booked online, you need to know how their rooms really look like. They place me in the worst rooms (which was on the side of the hotel building). I have been in Manila Hotel a lot of times and I was very upset when I entered the room (smelly, dusty, old) does not look like what I saw in their website. you can asked for the manager and have her (ms.mcruz) fixed the problem.
staff is very kind and professional. Lobby is graceful and beautiful. room is good for 5 star common. If you didn't want to stay in central Manila, It is good choice to stay this hotel. 1.There is not a guide map. only small one-post card is a map. Swimming pool is some small. but It is good for child and adult also.
The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. The bedding is excellent and the furnishings are all nice. The bathrooms are very nice too. Didn't have meals other than the breakfast buffet, which was the nicest I have ever had, in any hotel (previous stays U.S., Canada and Europe). Had never been to the Philippines and wasn't sure what to expect in accommodations. Manila Hotel surpassed my expectations by a significant margin. Has a feel of true luxury. Some of the surrounding areas seem like they could be a little unsafe. This is not a criticism of the hotel, which is over 100 years old and has probably seen much change in the city. The hotel takes safety and security of its guest very seriously. Just ask them if you have questions about the surrounding areas. We did venture out for dinner and were careful. Keep most of your money in the hotel safe and don't be alone if possible. Bottom line is I will still look to stay here when in Manila.
Room was clean and comfortable close to mcdonalds The taxi from airport was expensive wish i could havethe hotel pick me up next time
good hotel near rizal park and bay walk there s no refrigerator provided in the room no drinking water and cup plate or hot cattle
Staff is very friendly. Everyone says hello to you. Room service is good, but food can be expensive versus going to the restaurants. Robinson's mall is just in walking distance and many restaurants. SM Mall and Mall of Asia is a taxi ride away about 15-30 minutes depending on traffic. I extended my stay and received a discount on the room rate unexpected. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone that would like a nice hotel with good service and good prices.
Everything was perfect and on a high level.
The bed was comfortable. At least there was bottled water to drink. Location is good, very close to everything. No towels in the bathroom. I was glad I brought towels with me. The prize of this hotel is too much for what I paid. The room was very small.
Just a basic room. Not as advertised. All though the room was clean and affordable I booked for 2 adults and 1 youth. Their was only 1 small bed. In a very large room. And if we wanted a second bedroom it was $20 more. If we want more pillows it was $10 more. If we want blanket 10 Nightly
