The hotel is slightly luxurious. It is located in front of Little Tokyo and very convenient. The price of the room is quite expensive if you do not have a special discount for corporations or others, but with discount, the price goes down nearly half. I recommend here only if you have this kind of discount.
Stayed here on our first 2 nights in Manila. I was disappointed it didn't have more activity around the hotel. There is a great local shopping centre within easy walking distance. The room we had was a suite as there was only a few rooms left. The room was very spacious but dated. There was free internet but coverage was not the best and did not cover the whole suite. The roof outdoor pool was great and enjoyed many swims in our 2 days stay.
For anyone who regularly travels, the critical moment in any hotel stay comes when you are shown to your room. Probably the best tactic is to ask to see the room first if you have had bad experiences. I should have but did not! We were taken to the floor of our room and when the lift doors opened, the air was full of dust and the air was thick with solvent such as glue for flooring -- renovations were in full swing. In moment it took to reach the room door, it was almost impossible to breath and clear that the smell would permeate into all the rooms. So back to the desk. Apologies all round but a room of similar rating as we paid for was unavailable and they were heavily booked. So, for the first time in my life I was downgraded for one night. Room was comfy and clean but…
The hotel was clean but the furnitures lilttle bit old. And the wifi connection was bad so the price was too expensive . But the staff was really friendly and helpfull, but unfortunately, the front desk gave us the wrong information about the number of the terminal for our flight. We only stayed for two nights, but there was not so much to see around the hotel.
Stayed here 2 nights for business trip. Basically majority of the residents were Japanese. There's so called "Little Tokyo" for the area near this hotel. The room condition is clean but just a bit old. The air condition is quite "antique", which mounted onto wall and quite annoying sound especially at night. Due to the hotel located just by the main road, you can hear the vehicle sounds at busy hours. Breakfast is not buffet style but with sufficient choices of local, eastern and western styles. This hotel could be a good choice for short business trip. For leisure, maybe it is not the best choice.
