Review by Traveloka users

7 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

It's more of a cheap inn than a hotel. Not functioning aircon, we complained but the manager insisted it would be ok later. Until we're back from gala and room temperature still hot. In the middle of the night we transfer to another room. Worst hotel so far.
1st room not ready at 5pm made to wait for another room after a 4 hour road trip.
Aircon not working, comfort room is bad, you can smell the dust. the price is too high, not worth the cost.
The room smell bathroom, it's not that clean.
not clean room and outside is not safe
Lift wasn't working. bad shower
The over-all experience at Southern Cross Hotel Manila was great because of the cleanliness and great service.

eight return visits
I've been staying at the Southern Cross Hotel since 2008 over eight stays now. The staff are always extra friendly, helpful and somehow remember my name. Rooms are always clean and presentable and have been recently modernised with shower components and in room televisions. Although there is no longer a pick up or drop off option at the Airport, this is not a serious issue as there is now an air-conditioned UBE coach from each terminal @ P150 to Robinsons Mall where a taxi can take you to the Hotel for P50, just allow an hour for travel time either way. The meals are always tasty, well priced and a good serving size. There are so many places to see in this part of Manila, many within walking distance and if a taxi is required thus very cheap. M.H. del Pilar st. is a major jeepney route towards Baclaran passing near, though not to the Mall of Asia (hail a taxi on EDSA) and the return route towards Divisoria is along Mabini st, so not too scary an introduction to local jeepney travel, getting off one block over and using either Antonio Flores st or United Nations Ave to get back. Yes I'll be back for it's friendliness and value for money.

Super Friendly !
I have stayed here a few times in the last two years and the rooms are always clean and the shower is good, it could use a facelift but you get what you pay for, have never had anything to complain about here, staff a good, they serve good food in the restaurant and the beers are cold !

Average Stay
Southern Cross Hotel is located two blocks from the US Embassy, if u looking to do some of type business. Center and heart of night lifeclubs heart of bar scenes also. Walking distance to the Robinson mall and nearby restaurants. Motel is affordable. Theres a shuttle bus that would take to you Angeles City around 3:30PM those are the benifits of staying there. Eleveator is not working, it's under repair though. The place is clean but you might see some pests running around. They have room service. Thye also have a restaurant bar onsite. Very nice staff. A+ staff. very friendly. rooms are fairly dated. no sprinkler system coz its an older hotel. and some guest will smoke in the rooms. optional short stay hotel. I would stay there again though

Great news frequent aussie guests to the SOUTHERN CROSS HOTEL MANILA,and all other guests as well the new lift/elevator has just being finished and is now operational. No more lugging my heavy luggage up to the newly refurbished 4th and 5th floors my favourite rooms. No problems now having those extra cold beers in the friendly bar downstairs as well as experiencing a good Australian Menu in their restaraunt. Enjoy the live music 3 times a week or play pool at the EXPATS TOURAMENT every wednesday. Be like me and enjoy their friendly philippino hospitality next time you are in Manila.
