5/5 Excellent

Great AC and the price was right!

The price of our stay was incredible, 3 nights for $89USD. Extremely clean all the time, from the front door to the room everything was spotless. Air con AND a ceiling fan. There isn't hot water but honestly it wasn't as bad as we expected. The water is Luke warm and once you get all wet you're fine temperature wise. There weren't comforters on the beds, only sheets. The pillows were great and overall it was a super nice experience. Close to the action and close to the walled city. Within walking distance to all of the major sites and an easy ride from the airport. I can definitely recommend it.

Safe Clean Good WiFi in Good Location

The hotel is in a good location and you can walk to most places. There is a nice local restaurant just to the left. It looks modest but the food and service are good. The people are nice. I had an egg special in the morning for about 7 mil pesos. The lunch specials are fish chicken or steak. I don't recommend the steak. The special comes with soup and a drink for 9 mil pesos. What a value. The hotel staff is friendly. Its a basic room but just what I want - clean safe and good wifi. Let the hot water run a minute and it will be lukewarm which is good for me. I was able to print my boarding pass at the lobby computer.
