Upon first glance, you would really think that this hotel was old and lousy, but it is actually a haven away from the busy and polluted streets of Manila. It is just a cab ride away from the Embassy of the United States of America and the airport. The place was relaxing and serene, they also have very hospitable staff. I loved their Italian restaurant which offers the first and original panizza here in the Philippines. They serve a gastronomic feast with a wide selection of taste and flavor on their menu. I hope they could train their housekeeping department to be meticulous when cleaning the rooms.
