“Unclean and poor service. Injured from broken glass slivers.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

After going to this hotel i am extremely disappointed with the service and cleanliness of the room. Parts of it are unswept with food and broken glass slivers. After stepping on a sliver and bleeding profusely they had no first aid equipment like betadine and cotton. Only thing they can proving in exchange to this injury was a 30 minute extention stay! Like i wanted to stay longer in the horrible place! The la paz batchoy i had was very salty even with rice! And dont expect an apology from them. For me it SOOOO LOOONG SOGO! So clean so good... Yeah right!

food was terrible. Food was really bad and done unprofessionally . The room and carpet smells like an old dog. Theres no hotel standards here. Very poor.

Stayed here last month and it was a good and clean hotel. Worth for what you pay. The location is in the centre of other night clubs is a plus point. Walking distance to shops and restaurant. You may take a tuk tuk and travel other places. Not neccessary for cabs.

Thought the hotel is up to the usual good standard of Sogo, the car parking underground leaves a lot to be desired, its like playing shuffle board getting in and out, with a steep ramp. Also very steep steps to the reception from the car park area.

Room Tip: Rooms very quiet and romantic, but access is the problem, not wheel chair friendly

This is just a short warning to any travelling out there, we stayed at the SoGo Hotel, Harrison branch, Manila last week, for one night only, we were going to stay for a week, but even one night was too much.

So here is fair warning...... I think we were in room 227... and one other....

We signed in as a family (4 of us, 2 late teens, and hubby and wife) ...... they gave us their family room, one double bed and one single !!!

We complained, and they said they had nothing else, so we paid (FULL PRICE) for another room to put the children in. I also complained online in their chat, and guess what, their manager called and spoke to my (timid) wife, and said we should never complain to head office, only to him, he would not speak to me, and he did nothing for us !!

The room we were in, was their "Regency 2" room, yep, the best available at the top price.....

It's Advantages . . . . .

It's Faults:-

1/ The airconditioner sounded like a frieght train on steroids.
2/ The Airconditioner, although you could hear it (probably on the other side on Manila!) only slightly cooled the room.
3/ The bathroom...... STUNK, it smelt like a combination of mildew, mould, cockroaches, and rubbish dump.
4/ If you left the bathroom door open even a little, the smell above went through the entire room.
5/ There were many cockroaches in the room itself, expecially when you turned out the lights, out they all came....

My Advice, FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO STAY!! we ended up going to the Shogun Hotel, not too far up the raod, and guess what, it was a much better room, cleaner, bigger, and CHEAPER !!!

I will NEVER stay at a SoGo Hotel again, it is supposed to stand for "So Good So Clean" but we found it stands for "So Bad, So Dirty, So Smelly, So Low, So Crappy, So Stay Away."

Room Tip: Find somewhere else to stay
