I always stay at Executive Plaza whenever I am in Manila. The hotel is clean, inexpensive, with good size rooms and good, comfortable king beds. Price is in the $46 - $50 range for a king non-smoking room. I have stayed there at least once or twice a year for the past 4 years. The staff is really good, professional and accommodating The location rocks. Right around the corner from Robinsons Mall for my morning Starbucks Coffee blast and to check email. Lots of bars and restaurants in the area. Right next to a 7-11 for your late night needs and a sim card.
My only negatives with this hotel, and these are little things, is that it takes a long time to checkout. With the mini bars (and I hate minibars) you always have to wait for a staff person to check your minibar and count your stuff. It can take 15 - 20min just to check out of the hotel. If you have an early flight, be sure to add this time on. Also, the WiFi is not free. It is one of the stupid scratch off cards. Just a pet peeve, but I hate paying for WiFi when it is free at so many hotels. At least they could have free WiFi in the lobby.
The hotel also has some strange bathrooms. Some have full size tubs with showers, some have just walk-in showers, and I have never seen this before, some have half tubs with a shower. Kinda weird, but there must be a reason. Adds some personality I guess, but I try not to get one.
If you are in Manila and want to stay in the Ermita area there are a lot of choices in Hotels. The Executive Plaza is choice you will not go wrong with.
