Reviewed 23 March 2012

The rooms are very nice, staff is courteous and helpful, plumbing functional, beds large and comfortable. There are two issues, though:

As expected at this location, traffic noise is obnoxious.

The unexpected is that the restaurant has a karaoke bar. They routinely max the volume to amazingly loud levels and attract the worst singers imaginable. If your room Is on one of the first few floors, you will be "serenaded"; eating dinner in the restaurant is out of the question if you want to retain your hearing and your sanity. to top it off, the nearest decent restaurant is five blocks away,

If you just want a place to stay, go for it...and ask for a room above the third floor.

Dear bmheck,

Thank you for your candid feedback. As a result of this, we are now working with our restaurant to set guidelines on our karaoke sessions to ensure minimum impact on our hotel and dining guests. It will be limited to non-dining hours and finish earlier in order not to disturb other guests.

I hope this does not detract you from staying with us in the future. Kimberly takes pride in providing the best service we can. We also aim to continually improve guest experience for as long as it is within our means. I will be more than happy to suggest excellent restaurants located at Robinsons Place which is 300 meters away.

Sincerely,

Natalie Ng
Managing Director

We had a few nights here and found it fine for the money - about $60 for a double room with cable tv, hot shower, desk, and helpful friendly staff.

The hotel is near the busy Malate area but just a block away from the main noise and chaos, so a good sleep is possible. There is a large shopping mall a few minutes walk away with some good restaurants and a food court.
Would stay again.

location is good and accesible..close to LRT station and mall. price is reasonable and you are getting what you paid for.

the only downside is the wifi signal. i have stayed in this hotel for almost 3 months and every week that i checked in i tried to be in the 5th floor as this is the only floor with good wifi signal. food is average and sometimes not consistent specially the breakfast.

Stayed: July 2011, travelled on business
