This is a fantastic hotel for location in Ermita area. The hotel is huge but service is very good and nice and clean. Breakfast spread is excellent.

Best attraction is the pubs - all walking distance and you can come back to the hotel walking at any hour of the night -quite safe. My choice is G point / Southern cross/ Slouch Hat. I heard LA cafe is great but never had time. Beer is cheap and they serve good food too. Slouch Hut boasts of internet connection - so you can sip your beer while you surf and chat and email.People are so friendly and nice. Road side sales of fruits and snacks plenty and cheap. You got to buy them during the day.
I booked on internet and had no hassles. The duty managers are most helpful so are the bell boys. You can get the bell boy to give you all the newspapers you want to read though sad to say i found mostly english papers are the tabloid variety. Manila times is good but print is so bad.

Unique Qualities: Main attraction is location. All your odd shopping you can do in Robinson Mall v close by. Plenty of eating joints. ATMs Money changers no problem.If you step out you can get cabs or the local transport of any range. The sea front and the boulevard is hardly a kilometre away.

Due to rain i couldnt enjoy the Rizal Park so close by. I did manage a few trips towards the end and found the park so well laid out and beautiful. If you like hot and sultry climate this is best.

Intramuros is walking distance so to speak though on a hot day a horse cart ride or a bicycle ride is best.
