Adriatico Arms is a wonderful haven for those who need a relatively budget-friendly stay that places you in close proximity to major food spots, a mall, and Luneta Park. I stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights and I must say that I loved my stay. They gave me Room 204, which was just beside the 2nd floor landing. The room is relatively small, but spacious enough. I booked a Double Room, and it had a great hot/cold shower, a television set with HDMI and USB ports (great for casting your streaming videos from a phone). It also had a couple of arm chairs and a small round wooden table (which I used for my work laptop). Bathroom has no fan vent so best buy a deodorizer spray to keep it smelling nice. The room was clean. Nothing fancy, nothing frivolous, but it definitely served its purpose. Air-conditioning is great too. The hotel exudes a very rustic, homey feel. Dark wood definitely dominates the design, and reminds me in a way of some old Spanish stores and hotels. Again, simple. No frills. And I love it! No lift/elevator between floors, but the climb is so short so it's not an issue. Plus the staff are there to help, despite the pandemic climate (reduced manpower). Staff is very courteous! And while there is no regular housekeeping staff at night (reducer manpower during the pandemic), the front desk person is very accommodating with our questions. Internet connectivity is great. Not the best, for sure, but works well for the purpose I needed it for (I am able to stream movies and Netflix with almost no interruption). The hotel had a café on the ground floor and you'll see this once you enter the main door. Wasn't able to try and sample the dining experience as I am working at night and asleep for most of the day. I had my food delivered via the Grab app, and was only required to pick my delivery up from the first floor. There's a 7'11 store nearby where I got my water and snacks from. As always, I always recommend buying a spray can of lysol from the convenience store to just give the room a spray - especially your bed, regardless of what hotel you book in. This gives you extra peace of mind. Being smack right in the busy city of Manila, there's definitely a lot of street noise. Was pleased to be given a room towards the back of the hotel so there's less of that, but it's not an issue for me as I knew that I'm booking a city hotel and noise reduction will be almost impossible with such a small property. Overall, I LOVED my stay. This hotel is perfect for someone who is independent and has simple needs. Thank you to the staff who made my stay very pleasant and respected my need for privacy and to not be disturbed for anything.…
This is a budget hotel that is comfortable and clean. It is located in the heart of Malate close to everything. However it is located outside a bar/live band establishment that plays music all night making sleep impossible. If you don’t value sleep than this is the hotel for you.
Every time we pass trough Manila we stay at this Hotel. It's not the most modern, but you feel at home. Great and friendly service, good food en spacey rooms. The location is also perfect, lots of shopping malls and restaurants around it. And when you want to have transport around town you can always ask for jojo the driver to bring you. This guy is the prefect person to show you town, he knows every corner of it. Is punctual and funny.
Place is descent and affordable.the room is clean.courteous and attentive staff. Easy to book and easy to find. It is near a 24 hour convenient store,bars,mall and resto. Its a good place to stay for friends and families with kids.
The hotel is just walking distance from a large mall and transportation is not hard as this place is in the city.There is no elevator and we were on the third floor. So we have to climb the stairs of which is good having a bit exercise except if you have some heavy luggage then the security guard could help you. Our room is spacious and clean but there is a loud noise late at night which seems a generator or some machinery. The noise is a big minus of what could have been a good place to stay.
