This hotel is very close to the mall which makes it very convenient for buying food. It is also more convenient than staying closer to the park or American embassy. However, this hotel is a popular location for people who order prostitutes. So much so, the hotel has a policy on what time they need to leave by before incurring an additional charge. Given there are so many people coming and going, I didn't feel the security of the hotel was compromised.

Now for the room, I did find it clean for the most part. This is important given what I mentioned earlier. Since the power to the room shuts off every time you leave, there is no point to using the fridge. I found it was dirty and smelled weird. The kettle also looked gross. However, the towels, bed linens and washroom was clean. The water pressure on the shower was really good.

The part that bothered me the most was the noise, not from neighboring rooms or the city outside, but the ancient air conditioning. It was so loud, I could not hear the TV. When I turned the air conditioner off to try to watch TV, the sound was also horrible. Maybe the TV was a bootleg. Reprogramming it only helped a bit.

The room is also quite dark with no lights in half of the room. Not sure whose bright idea that was.

I managed to leave my luggage there while I went to another island. This is only possible if you have a reservation at the hotel again.

The free wifi was pretty fast but would drop in and out like all wifi or wireless signals in the Philippines.

This is decidedly a three out of five hotel, old and tired with dated decor, mostly clean and with friendly and helpful staff. But it's almost perfect location if you want to be in Malate takes it to a four. You're within a short walk of one of the best malls in the Philippines, Robinsons, and more importantly the pick of some of the best restaurants in Manila. The nightlife can be a bit on the risque side but is easily avoided or ignored.

Our room was non-smoking but smelt strongly of smoke since other rooms on the same floor allowed smoking which rather defeated the object. The aircon is the usual wall mounted unit typical of these budget hotels, slightly rattly but effective once it got going. It was clean and we always felt safe. There's only one lift serving the whole hotel so be prepared for a wait at peak times.

Breakfast is menu driven and served efficiently in the cafe downstairs. There's no pool, gym or other facilities to speak of.

But, there is always the "dance cafe" where you can learn to ballroom dance! This operates from Tuesday to Saturday on the second floor of the hotel.

Room tip: High floor to avoid traffic noise

Good location, right near Robinson's mall, staff are very friendly,
however even though the rooms have been refurbished they are still not of a good standard, the lighting is very poor, aircin not very powerful and had mosquitoes in the room.
This certain,y isn't a bad place but there's many others in the area within the same price bracket that are better

This time around the rooms was renovated and have flat screen TV with HBO. Kudos to all the staff of Rothman hotel for their continue excellent attitude and being courteous at all times. I have stayed at Rothman every time I visit the Philippines and they will always find time to make sure I get a parking space for my vehicle. Housekeeping staff, nothing but great. Room service was outstanding. Thank you to Rothman hotel for making my stay a pleasant one.

As a couple, we stayed at the Rothman Hotel, in Manila, and found it to be nice, clean, and spacious. Kudos to Scott, the AW of Rothman Hotel. He is a hands-on Manager, who looks out for his guest... The staff are very courteous and well trained, a reflection of management. The Hotel is at a great location, very near to eateries, and the Robinson Mall.
