I booked a double bedroom for a night last Sep. 24-25, 2015 in Palm Plaza Hotel which is near the famous landmarks in Manila like Luneta, Malate, Roxas Blvd. and other places of interest within easy reach.
The hotel is very easy to find. It is located along the stretch of Pedro Gil, very near to Robinson's Place Manila, Department of Justice, Philippine General Hospital, and the Malate area. You can go to the hotel via public transportations like the railway transit, public jeepneys, buses or taxis plying the route of Manila.
What I like:
Very polite and customer-service oriented staff
Accessibility via various transportation means
Near malls, churches
Plenty of restaurants and food outlet within walking distance
The price is ok considering it is an old hotel. I still consider the rate within the budget range.
What I don't like:
Tiled floor which tends to get cold when you don't have spare slippers to wear around
Slight noise from public transportations and nearby bars
The lights are not enough in the room. I feel it was a bit dark.
No available parking in the hotel. Parking is nearby on other establishment.
I booked using Booking.com and got a good deal of around Php 1200++ per double bedroom per night without breakfast.
My recommendation: 3 out of 5
I am still giving this hotel a good rate because of the friendly, efficient and very courteous staff. Everyone was helpful and we felt at home and secured in their premise. I also like the fact that it offered free wi-fi and the location was fantastic!
I am not sure if this hotel is a good fit for families with younger kids as this location is near the "Red Light District" but not really in that locale. You will find videoke bars and restaurants nearby.
