Stayed here twice with my family within two weeks going to the Visayas. Rooms are not big, but very clean and with fresh colours. Batrooms are excellent.Service from cleaning staff impeccable. The staff goes a long way to keep the guests happy. Everyone, from the concierge, bell boys to the sweetest front office staff ever,Jenny,Tissa,Chester and Fides made our stay very memorable.We will be back for sure.
The location is very good and much more interesting than in Makati and other parts of the city. Shopping in Divisoria and Mall of Asia is a short cab ride away and Intramuros is definitly an interesting part of Manila showing the ridh cultural history of the city.
The roof top bar and restaurant is excellent. We spent two Saturday evenings there with fantastic live music, a barbeque buffet and chilled wine.Staff very good there also.
I would like to see two improvements from this hotel
1. Long drinks on the roof top bar are expensive, almost on european level. Give the staff some training on how to mix good cocktails to defend the high price We stuck to some chilled chardonnays wich I found of good quality and fairly priced.
2. Replenish breakfast items faster when empty. 9 spoons location and view is fantastic but the breakfast can go from good to great with a few easy improvements
All in all a very good experience. Reccomended!
