I try to book this hotel every time i go to the Philippines, Even though its a older hotel. I have never been disapointed with the service and if there is a problem, the saff are very quick to fix it.
The Hotel is in a great position. Close to everything that you need, within a few blocks and if you need to go to Makati or the Airport there is always a Taxi at the door of the Hotel 24/7.
I think the City State Tower Hotel is the best priced hotel in Ermita, for service and location.
But being in Ermita, my problem is the street kids and the beggers. They are a pain to deal with.
Unique Quality: Great location. Only a short walk to the Mall, American Embassy and St Lukes Hospital.
the frontdesk staff workers are lying about availability.Some investigation learned different.I had a room situated at floor 4. At floor 5 above my head,they cleaned the functionhall at 01am
this was unacceptable,we could not sleep.Next day the manager told us,it is the noise outside!haha,moving furniture etc.(liar).The noise outside is also terrible,but what can we do about that?The breakfast is o.k.,well if you liked to be served by mr bean types!,gago's.The price 2600peso is for mnl standards normal,a bit high,in a thirth world country.So if you can handle people who lies,be my guest.
Unique Quality: location is good but very dirty

I have stayed there several times and was satisfied with the cleanliness and facilities of the rooms. They have expanded in the last few months into the building next door. Adding an extra 300 rooms.
And it’s close (almost next door) to my favorite bar Café Twenty Eight on Mabini Street. A great place to eat and drink. Nice music and food too. Love that place. Here is their website: www.cafe28manila.com
I consider this hotel a good alternative for budget travellers. For a minimum of P1700 a night you get a single/ double room with phone, TV, hot and cold shower and free breakfast at their lobby restaurant. The place is also centrally-located and a walking distance to almost any interesting place in Malate-Ermita area.
Worst Hotel I have ever stayed at in Manila. The rooms were not dirty or anything, the condition of the facilities is decent. However I checked into a DELUXE room, the standard was not available. The room, to me was about the size of a large walk in closet. very constrictive in space. Noise , I could hear noise in the hall people walking by talking , the maids carts going by, etc, this was with the door CLOSED.
I have stayed at many hotels in the philippines. Most You check in , they swipe your credit card for a few days, then if you stay for a week, or 4 to 5 days extra, upon checkout they swipe your credit card for the entire balance , and check your room and you are off.
This is not the Case at City State towers. Upon check in they swipe your cc for the number of days you say you are staying. Staying for 2 days? the clerk swipes your cc for two days. On the afternoon of the second day your electronic room key is automatically de activated and you cannot enter your room, unless you go downstairs and allow the clerk to swipe your credit card for additional days.
Checking out? The huge bellboy grabs your luggage and throws it onto a luggage cart. How nice you say? Nope, that is not their intention, helping you with your bags. The bellboy holds your bags hostage until you present him PROOF that you have paid your bill in full.
Never again, avoid that place like the plague. The lobby looks nice , that is how they lure you in.
