I didn't end up exploring the rest of the city because I was on my own and Makati is about an hour away by transit. The hotel was extremely clean and has great restaurant options, actually some...

I was here for a long weekend by myself. The hotel is actually quite modern, and is nicely situated in the history Intramuros section of Manila. I must admit I did not feel 100% safe in this part of town to walk around, but taxis are everywhere and you get used to the local vibe. MY favourite part of the... More

Excellent service, great food, very nice view, and great staff! A must visit when in Manila. :) Was able to do our pre-nup shoot in the Skydeck and reserved a room the last minute. We will definitely go back!

We arrived in Manila at approx 5:30 and had booked a taxi through the hotel, the hotel had given us incorrect directions to the taxi, when we located the hotel pick up stand we had to wait a further 20minutes for the taxi to arrive, this...
