I could not say anothing bad about my stay. It is my favorite hotel in Manila. We showed up 4 hours early and was able to get a room hours before check in time. I was also upgraded to a better room since they ran out of regular rooms for us. The guess relations person who helped us was very helpful and pleasant. We had a great stay and the Chi spa was an awesome experience. Though it was on the expensive side, it was well worth it. Bit on the expensive side.
Long line breakfast buffet; needs renovation at the lobby
Very good breakfast and gym. Very friendly personal. The booking price was given in U.S. dollars but final settlement can only be done in pesos (PHP). This becomes a problem when the hotel uses an exchange rate of 50 (correct official rate is about 46 - the official exchange rate at the front desk is about 47 something). I spent a lot of time arguing about why I would not just pay an additional 50 US$ for my stay because of this - I had to discuss it 3 times until it was eventually fixed, but I was very late for my plane because of it (even though I had gone twice before checking out to make sure it was ok!). This is my only complaint about the hotel which is otherwise very good. Just make sure you do not pay overprice because of the exchange rate also.
i very much appreciated your upgrading me to a corner room which i have enjoyed during a previous visit (room 909). for several years i stayed elsewhere in manila because i did not like the room assigned to me. but this time i was very happy -- thank you. no complaints...i was very happy at the EDSA shangri-la this visit.
Friendliness of staff. Safety measurements taken by Hotel. Proximity to Shopping Mall giving options for lunch and dinner. Rooms will need refurbishment pretty soon.
Nice and clean...It is really 5 stars hotel. The food of breakfast is so so...
The Hotel has a victorian feel of elegance, with a large ltiled floor lobby with soft furnishings. The wide tiled stairway leads to a firstfloor balcony overlooking a courtyard, this also has soft furnishings and a snooker table, plus a cage with two love birds in the corner. two coridors left and right lead to the rooms. there is also a top floor with more rooms. This was my second stay at the hotel and we were upgraded to a similar sized room with a kitchenette, however the room had a older although well maintained aircondition unit. Unfortunately mice were getting into the room. It was very noisy first thing in the morning from staff and guests alike. The room was right next to the stairs leading to the top floor and worse still opposite the linen supply cupboard were the staff would congregate talk and chat loudly early in the morning 5:00
I was satisfied with the location. Walking distance from the Nationalé museum and from Intramuros.The hotel was clean
