Where to Stay in Manila
Recently we stayed in City Garden Suites Hotel in Manila, a 3 star hotel in the heart of Manila along Mabini St.
The Hotel is quite cozy and certainly up to the standards for a 3 star hotel. Check-in was a breeze and the hotel has 9 floors including the Penthouse floor at the topmost.
Their room is quite the average for a 3 star hotel. Nothing fancy but it is sure clean and has that homy feeling.
