nice room, decent price, friendly staff, the hotel is a bit dated, the tub in our room was nice, but it needs a hand rail

The hotel is older and more than a bit shopworn. I will say though as in every Philippine hotel I've stayed at the staff is very good, very professional and helpful. But sadly this hotel is on the seedy side. I've stayed at two other City Garden hotels in Manila and they a both very nice so I was surprised with the condition of this property. But if you need a place close to the US Embassy it's within an easy walking distance so that may be an advantage to you. Because of covid the food service is very restricted. Sad to say the breakfast served wasn't very appetizing or even warm upon arrival. The front desk does order out for you but the choices seem to be from fast food places only.

In some ways it is an excellent value for the price. I really appreciate that the staff allowed our family to check in early. However, some of that was countered by a surprisingly petty insistence on charging for the throwaway slippers that were in the room--without any notice--and charging for supplying the room with drinking water--again, without any notice. Just know going in that may happen but, otherwise, we were happy with our stay.

Close to the U S Embassy and shopping. Staff was great! Very attentive. Breakfast buffet is Filipino and good (I'm American). Taxi's etc easy to get out the door.

The property is clean and the staff is friendly. Regrettably, the property is old and tired. Finding electrical outlets in the room was a bit like the finding Waldo puzzles. While the staff was friendly, it's clear they need a good deal more training. The stand out, for me, was the housekeeping staff - they did a great job keeping things clean.

Staff was very accommodating and super friendly. Breakfast buffet was good. Very close to US Embassy

The location was very good for our needs and at a reasonable rate. Plus they clearly have rooms for smoking which is what my girlfriend must have. With other hotels, it is not clear if they offer any rooms that allow smoking.

Included breakfast . Clean , well-made room. Friendly staff

The hotel is close to st luke and it's easy to got taxi because the gurad will assisting you if you requested them.The hotel is safety and clean also the satfs are friendly.It has good connection about wifi specially the phone.It's easy to get Robinson in malate and there's a lot of ticketing,money express and printing near the building.For me,it's nice and good the satff are active to assist the customer if needed.

Stayed there with my girl. Didn´t mind the red light district location. Included breakfast was great. Check in took a little although we arrived past check in time.

Good hotel, the location is very convenient. Good walking distance to St. Luke's clinic.

Usually staying at this hotel and it's always been great. Friendly staff, very nice, clean rooms, and very close to Robinson Place for shopping. The immediate unpleasant surrounding is not the hotel's doing, and must be suffered. Very good money changers in this area, though. The Room Wifi, though free, is quite slow and restricted.

Great hotel with clean, spacious rooms and attentive staff. My room was the Bedroom Suite and I was impressed with the marble covered night stands, the quality linens and other furniture accents, and the cleanliness of the room and bath. This was a delightful stay, and the complete opposite of my dismal stay at Lotus Gardens Manila two weeks prior, which is a sister property. The two hotels are located within a couple blocks, and within the same price range, but worlds apart in standards. I will definitely stay at City Gardens Suites again.

Staff was very friendly and rooms were very clean and comfortable

It was a very good stay. The staff are good. The rooms were clean and I got a very good value of my stay. I will certainly come back again in the future. Thank you City Garden! Nice job!
