Not a pretty as the picture....

Posted May 31, 2014
Pros: Nothing....
Cons: everything... how about not locking the ice machine..?? lets start there...:)
Location: zoo, mall, casino, bars, restaurants
I stayed here for four days..... the first room they put me in was decorated with a disco ball, naked woman on the walls, and mirrors everywhere.... had a mini fridge which was nice.. second room smelled of dead bodies... finally after asking me several times to move when I just wanted to relax I went to third room... which had a tv from 1950 and no fridge... so I guess I was down graded? I don't know but if you looking for cheap hotel and don't care about any luxuries this is the one for you... close to bars and easy to get taxi... walking distance to mall, casino, zoo... Oh and the toilet seat didn't fit the toilet... lol.. it kind of just was hanging on and much smaller than the actual toilet.. not sure what was going on with that.. shower also would drain very slow... and the staff questioned me several times when I was leaving... said it was the rules.. but didn't do it everytime... weird?? guess I was a flight risk? even though I paid in advance for the week... never will stay here again...

It is a nightmare!!!!!

Posted May 7, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: IT should just start over with everything
Location: there is a good restaurant, the Aristracrat nearby, and a short walk to Manila Bay, but you have to go thur 100s of homeless beggers to get there.
From the moment of checking in to when checking out, it kept getting worse here. This is a motel for tourist with cars, that need a garage with room. In the 6 days I was here, I had my room serviced once. Everyday, I had to go to desk (which is outside, no lobby). to get towels and water. The "FREE" breakfast is a bowl of rice and noodles and some sort of meat. You could not eat it. And there is no restaurant, you order breakfast and it is deleivered to the room to be eaten. WoW. The room had no windows and was a 10x12 "cell". What a joke!!!!! And the room smelled like a cistern that was backed up. there is no potable water in the room. you need bottled water, and you get it from the desk. Ok, when I checked out, I was given a bill for $8 and no one could explain what it was for. But I paid it to get out of there. This is a joke of hotel. STAY away!!!!! Beware of it!!!!

Good room service

Posted Apr 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very good room service (very bad pizza though). WiFi is alright and the bathroom have a big jacuzzi. On the negative side the bed is really stiff and the aircondition sounds like a gas turbine.

not sure about this requirement

Posted Apr 24, 2014
Pros: The cost per night is very reasonable and for the price, all was comfortable for us.
Cons: need to have your maintenance personnel to check the rooms prior to renting as we discovered plugged drain in the shower and the toilet did not flush
Overall the staff was very courteous. And we were very comfortable.

Close to Roxas Boulevard.

Posted Mar 26, 2014
Pros: Clean, no noise.
Cons: 2 glasses in the room.
Location: Roxas boulevard, oceanpark, zoo, Asian mall
During our stay in march 2014 we had not any bad remark. The room was clean and there was no noise. The hotel has no diningroom but that was for us no problem because they bring the food into the room.When i go back to Manila i stay there again.

No view of the sea, and no restaurant.

Posted Mar 17, 2014
Pros: The bathroom is very well designed and spacious.
Cons: Advertise that it has no restaurant for guests to eat in...only room service.
Location: For the type of clients here, the surroundings do not matter.
A secure drive-in hotel, but not for general tourism. No restaurant. Wifi works very well.

can i be reimbursed

Posted Feb 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Dear sir/ madam, Good day. I am Konesalingam Rasiah. I have booked a hotel last Feb 22 until Feb 26 in Sohotel at 2016 MH del Pilar st. Malate, manila, Philippines. I got confirmation that I was reserved with a confirmation number 115701705280. But when I went there on the 22nd of february and saw the place, I was dismayed with what I saw. The place was dirty and it doesn't smell nice. I thought you advert hotels. When I asked the front desk officer about the kind of hotel they have, the lady from the front desk said to me that it was not a hotel but rather a motel. I cancelled my reservation from there. But they say I must contact you people. We rebooked with another hotel that day. Sorry if it is just now I have sent email but I was busy with my medical check up here in the Philippines. Can I be reimbursed with regards to my reservation because I can't stay in that motel? It is cheap. I know. but it is not condusive for staying. I have booked using my credit card for two persons, me and my friend Sivarajah Rasiah, a 2 deluxe roomwhich we didn't stay. I hope for your consideration and I can be reimbursed with regards to my unused stay in that motel. Thank you. I hope for a positive reply. Respectfully yours, Konesalingam Rasiah
