The hotel was easy to find in Chinatown, I got the bus from outside of the airport then the LRT to Carriedo, which was a short 5min walk. I always like to do things as a local esp if the country’s transport system is good enough. Anyway, onto the hotel… breathtaking like I said, amazing, super clean, massive and beautiful! I had a huge room to myself with a bathroom that was fit for a king! The room itself is bigger than my first ever apartment I bought in London! Shower room has toiletries provided and the tv has plenty of English channels 😎 Checking in was simple enough bough and the breakfast the next day, wow! Ate so much and the staff were more than helpful when it comes to helping take pics, giving ideas and information on what to do and where to go, and are always welcoming and opening doors etc for you! Special mention goes to Edison, the guy is magic and I have huge praise for him! Gave a lot of help and made my stay at the hotel and in Manila so much better! Thanks again Edison 🙏 The reception staff were great and there was a lady there who was super nice - Christine, who never seems to take a break and is always working 🙈 The hotel has the best staff! I would highly recommend this hotel and Manila to everyone, and I will definitely be returning again 😎 Thank you again!

Home away from home. Everything's great. Our favorite hotel to stay when in Manila. Always our first option among the hotels that we stayed before. The location is close to shops where we get stuff for our farm. We always enjoy the Chinese food at the hotel's restaurant. There's array of good stuff to buy along Ongpin.

I went there during the Chinese New Year to have a staycation. I had a well-appointed and VERY CLEAN ROOM. The turn offs are the thread-bare bath towels, missing hand towel and missing slippers. Suggest that you have at least 2 chairs in the room and print out your menu for room service instead of guests having to scan it from an app. The mini-refrigerator could be colder too.

Terrible! Needed to change rooms multiple times: air conditioning stuck on 25 degrees, cold shower. Asked for a room without interconnecting doors on reservation, but got a room with interconnecting doors. Heard everything in the next-door room! Insects - beetles and spiders - come out at night. Refrigerators that don't chill. Completely worn-out bath towels. Old and worn-out bed mattress. Terrible!

We stayed in a hotel either for business or for leisure. We prefer to do our activities at a hotel for convenience. And that’s mainly the purpose. It will be a hassle for those who will bring their own vehicle as they do not have enough parking spaces (estimated less than 10 cars can accommodate). As per experience. I was instructed by the guards to look for a nearby pay parking spaces and they will call me at my room when there is available. Since it’s already night time. I decided to park my car in a mall (2kms away from the hotel). Ang hassle!

I did not expect to be this clean. It is like a 5 star hotel. But i suggest that their telephone must be useful. But other than that we did not experience other circumstances. I will rate this hotel 100/100.

Swiss Belhotel has consistently been stellar in service. For this stay, I asked for late check-in and sent my luggage in advance and was accommodated. As usual, super courteous and helpful staff every step of the way, especially heading home. The room was spacious and comfortable, AC the perfect temp, shower also adjustable temp, basic toiletries provided. My only issue? I get this is an old hotel, but the towels were so frayed they were actually torn. These are towels you would use as rags at home. This was the only hiccup in my entire stay. I hope they deploy new towels, or at least retire the ones that are so old and worn.
