BE FOREWARNED - there is but one thing seedier than Quiapo City & that is Hotel-99.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!
SIMPLY PUT, THIS SO CALLED 'HOTEL' IS DEFINITELY NOT UP TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS!!!
HOTEL QUIPPO DO NOT service your room, smells musky and dirty, due to having no windows or air vents. Rooms were reminiscent of an 1980's style era, BROTHEL.
Toilet & hand basin were both blocked (& were not fixed for the duration of my 2 week stay after many a request.)
Air Conditioner constantly leaked water onto the floor....
And with so much building construction taking place in the area, chances are you will either wake to the sound of a jackhammer or early morning prayer broadcasts, from the nearby Mosque.
UNHELPFUL, Ill DISPOSED, UNACCOMMODATING, YOUNG STAFF - who seem to care more about their 'Mobile Phones' & 'Gossiping', than assisting you with your needs (they could not, Manager included, even book me a necessary taxi ride to the International Airport for the following morning).
Hence, I was therefore forced, to spend the night at the Airport Lounge, to ensure I would not miss my early flight!!
Most, if not all staff were INCOMPETENT AND UNDEPENDABLE.
SOCIAL JEALOUSY IS RIFE. Personal belongings missing from my room....??
Staff would constantly ask PERSONAL MONEY RELATED QUESTIONS, totally unprofessional....
Located in the heart of Manila, Hotel-99, Quiapo, for all intents and purposes 'appeared' to be well suited, for visiting many of the key tourist destinations within the Metro area. If only it was that simple?!
Being one of the more heavily congested city's in SEA, it is most difficult to walk one kilometre, let alone, try to get around using a DYSFUNCTIONAL PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM.
Not only is Quiapo, Manila's Third World Ghetto but, Hotel 99 is the pulse for everything, which personifies this seedy, unhospitable place.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
