It's our second night and still so far so good. hotel staff are friendly.
I'm glad this hotel, it's just a few minutes walk toward slec.
Very noise cannot relax .bad smell elevelor ang also the wholeways area.
No parking space. Floor's a bit sticky at some spots. Room is non-smoking but there is a faint smell of smoke inside and in the hallway.
Not good. the pillows and bedsheets are so stinky and I guess there's a lot of bugs we so itchy. I hope you washed well your bedsheets and pillows! thanks but the food in namayan is Good.
Towel is unavailable. Bed sheet smells bad (smells old) Room looks dirty
the bed, matress, and blanket is itchy. the room smell's like an old cabinet. the comfort room has a bad odor i think it's coming from the toilet bowl and sink. the intercom / telephone is not working. the aircon has leaked straight into your bed.
Service was great but still there is room for improvement.
Very accessible. walking distance on bars and various places.
Very dirty room, the phone is smelly, they didn't sanitized, their WiFi is slow, it's ok if there's no internet but the phone signal is low also. The TV is not ready. The remotes is not responding. When we check in the room is not ready, no towels, no complimentary water.

Good Budget Hotel
Located in the heart of Ermita ... good place to stay when running business errand in the city, cheap, clean, however, horrible traffic during rush hours ... rooms doesn't have any windows, it's like a small prison room ... not good if you are claustrophobic, ... they do have a restaurant at the top and serves both local and western cuisine ... comfort room, clean and with good water, hot and cold supply

I was worried due to some negative reviews, but my stay was fine!
The Grand Prix hotel in Manila has a mix of good and bad reviews. Some of the bad reviews are quite bad, so I was worried about booking a room there. But I decided to give it a try anyway. What I encountered was absolutely fine. They hotel staff was friendly, the room was clean, the amenities (soap, shampoo, etc.) were all present, and so on. I stayed for 5 days and didn't have any problems at all. I suppose some negative reviewers may have valid complaints (maybe their room was indeed dirty or such). But I suspect some other negative reviewers are unrealistic: they're expecting 4+ star conditions at a 2 star hotel. At USD$20-25 per night, you can't expect top tier quality. Yes, I heard some noise down my hallway. Yes, there was a small hole in my sheet. And so on. But overall, my room was clean, my bed was comfortable, my shower/lights/tv all worked, and so on. So I was satisfied. .

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.
