Manila Manor Hotel

Friday, May 29, 2015
Manila Manor Hotel is like an old home, a bit spruced up, but inevitably rundown. Location is perfect, merely several steps from Robinsons Malate Mall. The hotel obviously services a lot of patrons. It's affordable and well positioned. Ditch your luxury expectations and you will come to love this quaint hotel.
The tall building has an elevator service. Looking more like an office building, it flashes no sign of hotel-esque facade, except for the name and large banners with hotel promo prices outside. Few parking slots available in front of the entrance.
The lobby has a 70's tropical feel, in one perspective. It feels entirely different when you pan to the left. Hotel concierge was friendly and informative.
Hotel elevators, one was under construction. Red sofa at the center of the lobby. Seems partially clean.
Superior Double Room: Php1680 + with set breakfast (Agoda)
The roomy was actually pretty big, and with complete amenities. Glasses for guests.
Lampshades and side round table
Weird pink-ish toilet. Sadly there was not hot water (heater was busted).
Complimentary shampoos, soaps, toothpaste sachets.

Remarks:
  • Their restaurant was quite pricey. Serving size would be short for sharing. But taste-wise, everything was good.
  • When we had trouble with the hot water, the mechanic/electrician tried to sort it (for a long time). He kept coming in and out of the room, while profusely apologizing. But the front desk told us that she already gave us the good room, with water supply. Some rooms hardly have water coming out of the shower. Too bad the water heater won't work.
  • If you're desperate and it's only overnight, I would recommend Manila Manor Hotel. Or try other hotels with similar price range nearby, like Grand Prix Manila, Hostel 1632, Mabini Mansion, Eurotel Hotel, or Tune Hotels Ermita.

  3. Take this example; you are the GM of a hot boutique property in the desert. The temperature is pushing 118 degrees. Since occupancy during the summer is very low, you encourage a lot of your team to take their vacations so you can get that vacation accrual off your books. One of those who takes you up on this is your chief engineer, one of two engineers for your entire five acre property. He goes home to the motherland, Germany for a week. Now just because it's hot does not mean that you don't have customers. Some tourists seem to love the heat, and so it was with this particular steamy day in August. As the sun begins to set, your guests make their way from the pool to their bungalows. Dusk and 100 degrees, everyone turns on their aged air conditioners full blast so they can cool down. Your only other engineer has gone home for the day. It is at about this time that the calls start coming in. The ac units are freezing up. The old units freeze up when they are turned on full blast. Many blow the circuit breakers. So there you are, in your office doing the forecast for your weekly corporate status report call when the front desk calls you in a panic, "the guests are flipping out" cries your new front desk agent. You check out the calls and see that you need your engineer back on property, but his pre-paid cell phone (you cant afford to pay for a cell phone for him) is out of time -you cant reach him! So what do you do? You head to the rooms to see if you can fix them. Room by room you tackle the challenge of explaining to your sweaty and angry guests why they cant turn their ac on full and that it will take at least two hours for the ice built up around the coils to melt. Then you start looking for the circuit breakers, which are scattered all over the 60 year old property. By the time you reach the last room the guest who answers the door almost screams at the sight of the sweaty, dirty general manager holding a tool box with a dazed look on his face. "Wasn't this the same guy who was pouring us Mimosas at the pool this morning honey?" asks the guest as you begin your repairs. Once the craziness is over you get a call on your cell phone. Yes, it is your engineer returning your call. "You trying to reach me boss?". The next day, while on your conference call you listen to a speech about how general managers need to spend more time with their guests rather than in their offices. Duh, you think as you try to scrub the grit out from under your fingernails. Corporate Guest House in Mumbai
