Stayed here for a week. Hotel is around the corner from the Prime Minister's house and close to Manila Mall. Very near Jappa Gate.
Breakfast never a disappointment Transportation is very accessible.
Machine Yahudah market is within walking distance.
Amjad Abu Diab made our vacation memorable. He was working very hard trying to help and please the guests. I always see him cleaning to make sure everything is spotless. He is very friendly and polite with all the guests. We like this hotel because of employees like Amjad. He is the reason we will come back next year!!! He always has a smile on his face.
