We booked junior suite here and spend an overnight because of a birthday event.
The room is huge , can fit even 5 pax just pay for an extra bed for it. Aircon has enough cooling power, and the room has mini bar. The downside was there's bad smell coming from the bathroom , likw a drainage smell so it was disgusting plus the heater is not functioning, i waited around 10 minutes but still no hot water coming from the heater. Staff however were all friendly, respectful and ready to assist you in anyway they could.

The Hotel is descently nearby 168 mall, Divisoria etc. The hotel had a nice lobby, Elevator with literally rugs that changed to Monday to Sunday, Altough the rooms are good, I really hate the bathroom, The shower looks like someone spit on it, and the smell. smells alot like watermelon frost and urine. yuck, well at least it did have a third party television which show fav movies like wonder woman or I dont know, Beauty and the beast, the rest are chinese stuff. All I say is, its a good and bad mall. nothing perfect.

also, it was formerly Binondo suites, And its much MUCH, better than this hotel.

It's really not worth visiting the same named restaurant beneath the hotel. The food was below standard. Luke warm at best. The buffet was old & cold. Salty spareribs. Bland Seaford bihon soup tasteless. The restroom was filthy. The staff are clueless and miserable. They then overcharged us for items we didn't order.
I should've read the clear sign on entry & kept my distance.

Breakfast is more on Garlic Rice and fish only, only one meat (Sweet Pork).
I asked the staff if they have a Pancake, Because my Daughter want a pancake.
then the staff said "Kung ano lang po ang nandyan(w/not a pleasing face expression)" Good that they have toasted bread and sunny side up egg but no butter or any jam.
Coffee is not hot (Luke warm only )
Room is cozy , But not a spacious as what I've expected. The front desk are have an average customer service not friendly.
Security is good, Also the cleanliness.

The hotel is pretty old and worn out. This hotel is in need of a major makeover. Nevertheless, the staffs are pretty vigilant and pretty efficient in their work. The rooms are spacious and pretty affordable too. It's location is pretty strategic and you can have easy access to major eateries and within walking distance to shopping malls too.

It was definitely a hidden gem you can found in Binondo. I Discovered this restaurant with some of my friends, it's not just about the hotel but the great dish they serve at Lai Lai's Seafoods Restaurant, you can find it inside the hotel. And really their selections did not disappoint, it's all worth...
All the food are great, yung babalik balikan mo talaga..
I love the serving tea everytime I visited Chinese Resto.

Actually what amaze me they give big servings for a reasonable price talaga, I highly recommended you guys try this place if you visit Binondo with your friends and family .. You can enjoy it as Much I enjoyed being there..

Their Summer Drink is Back
Halo-Halo Coffee is the best, love it with espresso shot .. perfect this super hot day ...

This hotel has been recently refurbished and renamed as the Lai Lai hotel. It sits in the heart of Chinatown.
It looks modern as you enter with courteous service at the front desk.
On entering our small but but nicely furnished room, cockroaches scattered across the floor from under the wardrobe. Not a pleasant site, but considering this was the condo suites before with a poor reputation then I am not surprised.
At breakfast we had a Chinese style buffet which to a western point of view had little variety. It was all self service including coffee and very sweet ice tea.
We complained about the cockroaches also scampering around in the toilet this morning. The receptionist who obviously was used to this complaint said we could have 10% of our next bill when we stayed and offered us a 10 minute free massage. We won't be returning.

The rooms are very much relaxing and comfortable and they also have a good wifi connection. There are plenty of things around to see like the malls, churches and also a few places to eat at or you can just get downstairs and enjoy their buffet restaurant. I enjoyed the service of the room attendants because they cleaned my room well. The front office staffs are very accommodating. First time in Chinatown LaiLai Hotel and I am totally happy with my experience.
