Nice and friendly staff and courteous.
Average hotel. Near US embassy Manila.
Not so clean towel, and bed have noisy sound everytime you move
The room does not have a window... It's dirty, the sheets and linens had smell, many hairs - as if the room wasn't cleaned up before we arrive....No parking, our car was parked in the streets
It was just great and satisfied with the services of the crew and the staffs for their hospitality being rendered to me, and also I like their breakfast. Maybe in the future I could refer this to my friends.

Suites !!! ??? Minus 10 rating to this hostel !!!
I don't really know how they get away by calling this place a hotel / suites !!! This was booked via our travel agency otherwise I'd never booked this rundown hotel, or hostel rather . It's right next door to the lovely city state towers hotel where we booked all our tours and private car with driver . Choose them instead . It's smelly , damp , no windows in rooms , towels are grey and black not white ... Breakfast only ok ... You can't even move in the room , that small , no room for luggage . It's in an area that never sleeps which makes you leave with no sleep !!! Loud music / bars outside . Dodgy looking people ... Especially the families with kids please avoid this area . Stay in new town or in a better hotel . We've booked a two double room for three of us and none of us were happy . Luckily it was for a short period or we'd have changed hotels . 2 nights was more than enough with the third night we checked out early for a morning flight , we were so happy to get out of this place and in Manila in general ... did not feel safe at all . We traveled around south east /Far East Asia this being the worst city for our security. There seemed to be many spas only used for anything but spa facilities. Luckily we didn't dare to go into any !!! Although we desperately needed a foot massage we still waited until we got to Vietnam.... The old town was interesting and historic but would I ever come back to Manila ? Definitely a big NO !!! Feels too dirty and unsafe . Babies and small kids on the street , begging and sleeping on pavements. Heart breaking. New town however was very modern and Europe like !!! Huge contrast ... High end designer shops , museums , good eateries etc ... Only used taxis or private cars with drivers ( booked from city state towers hotel )which cost a small fortune .... Traffic is a nightmare. It can take up to 2-3 hours to get somewhere in the Manila City !!! Avoid avoid avoid !!! Can not , will not recommend this place to anyone ...

Terrible stay
Room was very dirty andnoisy. There is no restaurant close to it but they offered us to take their shuttle bus to Mall of Asia but we refused because their charge is expensive. Complimentary breakfast is not good because there were only 6 choices. Staying here with kids is not recommendable because there is no microwave and fridge available in the room.

Like living in a cave
Three words... No Cellular Reception. So I thought that maybe the Wifi would make up for this but nope. Even wifi signal wont even let you connect to the internet. So I guess this hotel would suit those people who came to Manila to hide.

Nothing Good To Say
My husband and I stayed at the Gran Prix in December whilst waiting to fly out. Our experience was terrible. The room we booked was small and cramped, the sheets were stained and the hot water in the bedroom didn't work. The telephone in the room didn't work despite an electrician coming to fix it twice. The air conditioning worked but made a loud beeping sound that would not go away and couldn't get turned off. When we first arrived we asked for some bottles of water, and we had to ask the front desk twice to bring them up. When they eventually did we got 1 500ml bottle of water each, despite the fact that it was 28 degrees + outside. The first evening we arrived we were tired so ordered room service. The food was cold and was disgusting and tasteless, it tasted stale and like it was just warmed up. The breakfast the next day was no better, we couldn't eat it because it was so disgusting we couldn't keep it down. The hotel also has a rule that if you order takeaway food, they will charge you the price of the food you ordered so you can eat it in your room. That basically meant that you had to eat out, or The only small positive is that it was only a 20 minute walk to the Mall of Asia which had a lot of shops and restaurants. Overall, we were very disappointed with our stay, it was not worth the few pesos we saved by going to a cheaper hotel. I would NOT recommend staying at this hotel, not amount of savings is worth it!

    Staying at Gran Prix Manila is a good choice when you are visiting Ermita.

    The hostel has a very good location, also near the Ninoy Aquino Intl Airport, which is only 8.61 km away.

    This hostel is very easy to find since it is strategically positioned close to public facilities.
