Pretty nice place, but the area is a bit shady. I was a little worried about some rough customers lurking around, but they ended up being OK. They even told me not to trust people around there and "watch my back". I wouldn't advise staying here if you plan on staying out too late. If you're a daytime person it's great!

My partner and I enjoyed our stay. Spacious room, good location and a comfortable bed. Air conditioning included in the price which was very reasonable considering the quality of the establishment. Easy access for the disabled with slopes and lift or and only 2 flights of stairs as the hotel is only on 3 levels.

room was clean old fashioned a bit staff where very good helpful i like the hotel would stay there again value for money great wifi they was a guard at night made you feel very safe i like the area was a nice walk to where the shops and restaurants are had air conditioning . again like to thank all the hotel staff

The room was nice and large with plenty of storage space. However, the air conditioning is from an old fashioned fixed unit by the window, which is quite noisy. The toilet had a constant slow leak and didn't flush properly all of the time due to blockage - the blockage was mentioned to the staff 3 times... Still not right. The shower door doesn't move on the rail smoothly and you can't adjust the shower settings, however, this didn't affect the overall shower feel. The breakfast is terrible as you only get 2 pieces of toast and a fried egg all the time. And when I asked for milk in my coffee I was told there wasn't any, however, when the lady serving me went away I checked the fridge and found some milk and helped myself. She didn't look very happy as I was the only one in there and now she had to do some work. The location doesn't help the situation either unfortunately, as I felt uneasy walking past people that appeared to live on the streets when walking towards Robinson's mall. However, this doesn't mean it's unsafe, it was just a feeling, especially at night. If you're coming to Manila for the first time be aware of the pollution when travelling about. The jeep things are a nightmare for letting the pollution in, especially when the weather is hot. When getting a taxi at the airport avoid the yellow ones as they charge more. Get a taxi with a meter running or you will end up being massively out of pocket. I finished off my time here at the Eurotel hotel...... They were brilliant and well priced.

Staff are accomodating and helpful, the area is not accessible to any restaurant or convenient store. It is not also accessible for a taxi ride. Cleanliness must be improved, tv cable must also improved

I would thank workers for being nice enough to run the hotel and many thanks for the guard who's protecting the hotel every night. Well, the hotel is very bad very old and expired. Bed are dead, no blanket, no fridge , nasty bath(sorry), broken windows/balcony, damaged curtains, and much much more . The area is sort of creepy and scary.

Excellent Dar are halp full an disturb a tole An what we ask we gate the serves only dar was no tele fone in a room but even we enjo over salfe beso of no drstrbnes in hotel an we will be agin in same hotel

The Casa Nicarosa hotel is quietly located a block away from the Night clubs in Malate. I found the walk fairly safe for a guy despite the late hours. I would recommend a cab if unsure of your safety. Now the place is pretty but the website doesn't show the tall building just meters in front of the hotel. The standard rooms are not worth it. The only window opens up on a dark pit at the back and you get all the noises from the reception. However I found the deluxe rooms much better if you don't mind the wall standing meters away from your balcony. For the rooms opening at the back of the building the rooms are the same size as the standard room and they look just like a standard room. The deluxe rooms opening at the front of the building are much larger and very nicely decorated like the foyer. I found the Suites pretty blend. The Wifi only seemed to work in the foyer or the balcony at the front. The lady manager seems to hang around all the time and I found her a little abrupt in her manners. Definitely go for the deluxe at PHP1800. Watch out for taxes in Manila as it amounts to about 25% of the room rate if not included.

This hotel offers an oasis of peace in the middle of the hectic area of Manila Malate. The street is so quiet that you would never realize this is only around the corner and a 5 minute walk from the most famous/infamous bar and clubbing area of Manila. Although personally I am really not into this, it is still nice to be here. The Manila bay is also just a walk away and offers various nice establishments to sit and relax with a view to the bay (Max!). Visit the Malate Church, one of the oldest in Manila and still in use and intact. Robinson's Malate is a somewhat longer walk away (or short with tricycle/jeep/taxi) and with all the adjacent buildings has practically any shop you are searching for as well as all the known food chains i could think of and 2 and 3D cinema. The hotel itself offers unmistakably clean rooms furnished in a nice somewhat European/Mediterranean style as well as the lobby and restaurant of the property. You can enjoy your breakfast sitting on the nice tables from native materials and design or sit on the veranda. Although the view is a blind wall the growing vegetation still gives it a nice and cosy atmosphere. The quality of the breakfast I found somewhat meager for the price but management promised to look into it to improve. Rates are fair for the area and the hotel is bookable through many websites. You might get the best personal offer though, by enquiring in person or via email with the staff. This and that depending of the length of your stay and your requirements/number of persons and payable by cash or credit card. There is a wifi throughout the hotel which I found sufficiently fast and available. Staff is very nice and helpful and adds a personal touch. Altogether a very nice experience.

unfortunately, i have to rank this the worse hotel we've ever stayed in. since a new management took over just a year ago, everything just went downhill. in 2009, the staff were so great in providing service to us and that's to include the free breakfast, but since a couple of the owners start watching all the staffs movement, the $#!t just hit the fan. it wasn't as cozy as when we stayed there for the first few times and i just feel sorry for the other foreigners that stayed there and learned the inhospitable that we all pinoy cherish and proud to share to the world. in the last few times we stayed there, we just decided to find another place to stay. one of the things we dislike is being so close to clubs and all you can hear is a loud thump...
