Nothing peculiar or extravagant about this hotel. Staff were nice. But the room they gave me was on the fourth floor. I have to drag my luggages up using stairs because elevator was not available.. I got it for 850/nyt. Good price for location.
Booked 2 rooms. One room facing the garden which was a nice view. The other room was facing the road which was ok. This hotel is outdated but not relevant to me because I just want a place to sleep in and stay for 2 nights.
The swimming pool is located under a giant acacia tree which gave it a beautiful view. It was very quiet when my husband, brother and his wife, my niece, including myself went swimming. We had the pool just to ourselves.
The location of this hotel is perfect if you're planning to go to Corregidor, shopping and most of all eat out, this hotel is for you.
I traveled the world and traveled to the Philippines numerous times and this is the best place I had ever stayed. Manila is not as nice as many places in the Philippine Island but the staff there were GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!
They helped us in every way and they made our stay the greatest. We had our dirty clothes cleaned and I never had clothes clean this well. The white were whiter than I ever had in my life. We need some papers printed at the last minute 1 am and they allowed us to come to the staff room and the staff were all sleep and they got up and haded some thing printed for us, for the embassy the following day. AND THEY DID NOT CHARGE US ANYTHING. The AC was not working well and they they gave us 3 large cooling fans and gave us a larger bed for the kids.
Manila Bay Service Apartment is the best place I ever stayed and hated that I had to leave. We did not have one bad experience.
Well the overall ambiance when you enter the hotel is quite good for a budget hotel.
The only thing I didn't like is the bathroom. The hot water in the shower was weak. There's no mat at the bathroom so its quite messy (seems there's a leak coming from the toilet bowl). I tried calling the front desk but there's no answer. Anyways, i thought i'll stay for only a night and I arrived around 1 am so I decided not to bother. The wifi connection is poor too.
Hotel is conveniently located for many of Manila's tourist attractions. The room had the benefit of kitchen facilities, though the supply voltage seemed low causing the stove to struggle to get up to a sensible temperature for cooking.
I shared the room with a mouse for the last three days that the staff seemed quite disinterested in doing anything about.
In other respects the hotel was a pleasant stay - the door staff in particular were very helpful in getting taxis and giving advice.
