"A very nice and conveniently located hotel!"
Very comfortable in terms of hotel and service. Busy neighborhood, but fine for us, accessibility to places we wanted to see and go to. Definitely we'll go back, beautiful and very clean hotel. Free breakfast was excellent! Good job Best Western La Corona!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Thumbs up for BW La Corona!"
For downtown Manila in the Ermita district.....just an outstanding hotel. Best Westerns have been hot and cold in the way the are run from my experience.....this one was very well run and maintained. Friendly and courteous staff and nice accommodations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Surprisingly good hotel."
A nice hotel in the heart of Ermita. Nice architecture outside of the room, easy walk to the Bay or to shopping at Robinsons Place or to local shops. A very good breakfast buffet but please replace the annoying television with background music. A good restaurant at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Archaeology professor loves the Best Western La Co"
I have stayed at the Best Western-La Corona many times over the past four years, along with my graduate students. We usually stay there for a few days before going to our archaeological field site and upon return to Manila in transit to the U.S. I love this hotel. The price is right, the hotel is clean and has nicely decorated rooms, restaurant and […] lobby. The rooms are exceptional for Manila - excellent bathroom amenities, beautifully decorated rooms, with good lighting, perfect AC, cable TV, coffee and tea, internet that works well (also a business center with free internet if you don't have a laptop). The staff are very professional and friendly (they always remember our names from visit to visit. The food in the restaurant is well-priced and outstanding, including Filipino, American, and international dishes, and the free breakfast is really wonderful - both American and Asian choices. Ermita, the traditional tourist district, is colorful and exciting, near the Spanish city, museums, and other historic areas (also close to the airport, so not a problem even in rush hour). Some tourists might find Ermita to be too chaotic if they want a sanitized tourist experience, but I find it exhilarating and interesting. Manila's best intellectual bookstore is just a few blocks away! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel in the middle of craziness"
Had a great visit. I always stay here when in Malate. A touch of sanity in an otherwise crazy fun place that is Malate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad, but noisy and not in good neighborhood."
I cannot say anything bad about this hotel. Hotel is not new and shows wear and tear although they maintain good. But the area is not good at all. So noisy jeepenys running all night long with broken mufflers. I had hard time sleeping. For that value I am sure you can find much better hotels. Not very good for families. Maybe for business trip if you […] have things to do in that area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A comfortable Best Western Hotel"
The staff is very attentive and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and everything worked well except the mini-bar refridgerator. They offered to replace it for me but since I was checking out the next morning I just asked for ice, which they brought twice for me for no charge. Breakfast is included and has a good selection of Western and Filipino […] foods. The hotels has 6 vehicles available to take guests out, which can be anything from an airport run (at about $12 US) to further points for tourism at negotiable rates. The vehicles well kept and comfortable. The hotel is a short walk from a major mall and I found that quite convenient. Do note that it's best to do all your walking around before dark.

"Great hotel to stay in Ermita"
The hotel itself is clean and pleasant. The employees are very courtious and helpfull. They are very smart and professional looking besides being hospitable. The room where I stayed are big and lot of spaces, however, the TV screen is small. I would very much recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at The Best Western Corona For a 2 nights. Staff was pleasant Eager To Assist. The best part of this hotel is that includes breakfast every morning and free Wi- Fi. The Internet service works perfectly. The Hotel Itself is very well kept and on a great location. I would definitely reccomend this hotel to anyone who is on a budget and still […] looking to stay at a nice hotel. Definitely worth every Dollar you spend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel, iffy neighborhood"
This hotel has everything but a good neighborhood--it is located on a street full of beggars and homeless people. Not really dangerous, just unpleasant. Other than that, it's great: good breakfast, lovely and quiet rooms, friendly staff, central location, plenty of inexpensive restaurants nearby. Don't use the hotel shuttle, it's a complete rip off. […] (They wanted 1800php when a cab was 300php!) Good value for money, too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Place To Stay For Embassy or St. Luke's Visits"
The staff of the hotel are great, they really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable, it is too bad that there are things outside their control, such as the dirty kids begging for money, or the fecal matter on the streets around the area, I know this ,as I stepped on it and end it up throwing a good pair of walking shoes. The room was very […] clean and the fridge inside the room works good. The fridge in the hotel restaurant apparently don't work too good as the beers you buy there are warm, there is nothing worse than drinking warm beer, specially when it cost P82.00. I found the beers from nearby 7/11 to be cheaper, P34.00 and very cold. The room I stayed in was very noisy as it is on the 2nd floor and the noice from the outside just comes in, next time I will request a room on a higher floor. The smell of cigarette was very strong in the hall, so I complained and the smell went away, I could hear the fan from the vent at the end of the hall working, so my guess is that it had been turned off. The staff is responsive to your complaints, so complain and I am sure they will do their best to make your stay there a pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A week in Manila/St Lukes/US Embassy"
Stayed for a week at hotel. The staff was friendly and cleaned the room once mid week. Over all was satisfied with the location. Was there for medical exam at St Lukes, which is just around the corner, within walking distance. And also had an interview at US Embassy which you can walk to or take a short taxi ride to.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nightmare on Elm street defines my experience"
After checking in was told to wait in their lounge and they would send a person to take me to my room after an hour nothing.....I had checked in post 3 PM so there is no excuse whatsoever for not having availability. As I was being escorted to my room I was told my room had been upgraded thinking they may have sensed I was irritable about the wait […] time. As we neared the room there was the sound of incessant hammering and a plastic drop cloth placed over the door of the so called "upgraded room". I was told oh don't worry they will stop at 5 PM given this was nearly two hours from that point and I had spent a day of travel I was none to pleased. Upon opening the door to the "upgrade room" it was a reflection of my overall experience it was small, a total dump, but at that point I had already prepaid via Expedia and felt I just got bent over and they drove. Would have been better of in one of the local short time hotels that usually facilitates commercial transactions between the opposite sexes, AVOID, AVOID!!!! Did I mention AVOID this place? You have been warned. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This is my fourth trip to Manila and I have always stayed at this hotel. It is very clean and all the staffs are superb especially the doorman named "Mar". He will go out of his way to help you.

"Decent hotel, excellent service & breakfast but..."
The staff was excellent, typical of customer service in the Philippines and the all-you-can eat breakfast was great but the location of the hotel left something to be desired. Room was fine but a little cramped. All issues were forgotten once we had a great breakfast. Blowdryer would have been nice to have. Overall, it was a nice stay and would do it […] again. Thanks!!!

"Not worth the cost"
Very negative stay. Hotel is way over priced for the area with much better hotels at much better prices, at half the cost. Prices are elevated for foreign visitors. Room air conditioner was old and very noisey could not get good sound sleep. Hotel lobby flooded during rain storm but street in front did not flood. Very poor building design. Hotel would […] not give room discount due to lobby flooding for three days. Will not stay at this hotel again on my next trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good Location, Friendly and courteous staff."
Taxis had some problems finding the hotel. Breakfast Buffet was very good. The rest of the meals on the menu were kind of expensive compared to the many other options available within walking distance, but they were tasty and portions were more than adequate. My room was on the 5th floor. Room was very quiet and nicely decorated. Bed was firm but comfortable […] innerspring mattress. The mini fridge comes fully stocked with drinks (water, beers, sodas) and snacks (chips, cookies, chocolate bars), but room comes with DAILY complementary bottled water. Bathroom was kind of snug and its a wet room, so I suggest bringing flip-flops. They supply disposable slippers for the room, electric kettle and the hairdryer was in the desk area. Windows in the bathroom and room do open. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall the hotel is very nice. The staff are attentive and polite bringing service with a smile. The hotel is one street down from the main road right next to the water. Consequently, this street is less desirable to walk along, especially by oneself.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i have stayed at the Best Western la corona several times before, thru Hotels.com. i am always very satisfied there. the buffet, which is included w/ the price, is awesome. the dining rooms waiters, are very good. one waiter, Ryan, really takes care of all customer needs. he knows the area, and can tell you where to go, for everything. he is always […] very kind. another waiter, Richard, was also very good. people should know when things go well, not just bad. great hotel !!!!!!!

very convenient location, polite service, truly responsive management. Need more lights in the room, however, and these should be better located according to the needs of the occupant. For instance, there's no reading light when one is in bed.

"20 day stay..."
The hotel is nice. Rooms are big, especially by Asian standards, but beds are not western style. My king sized bed was more of a box spring than a mattress. I bought a mattress enhancer to use after just the first night so the bed would fell softer than a rock. My room was on the front of the hotel and although on the third floor the street noise was […] quite bad. The staff was extremely polite and tried their best to handle all requests as soon as possible. The restauant was convienent but that is about it. The free breakfast buffet left a lot to be desired. The powered eggs put on the line every morning were extremely underdone. You could order eggs any style but they took a while to get. The overall cost of the food was high enough to put a serious dent in any budget. I tried several dishes even at the higher prices and was disappointed by all but two meals. The Beef Tapa and the Ice Cream Sundea were the only good dishes. The area around the hotel is mostly alleys and not always the safest between 12am and sunrise. As a foreigner if i tired to walk anywhere I was followed and hounded by beggars of all ages and sizes. For the most part they ignored locals but I was more than fair game. As harsh as this sounds DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO ANY BEGGAR. It doesn't matter how much they pull on your heart strings giving money to one only puts an even bigger target on your back.

"Be careful when deal with this hotel staff"
First is the price and they are higher than others. Assistance wise they are quite reasonable. Cleanliness is there as they do not clean the room everyday. Toilet choked every time being used and that goes to friends who also stayed there. The is just like bed and breakfast. Do not cater guest needs such as muskin tape, strings simple pen to write. […] The concierge works well with the taxis and charge extras the moment you enter the taxi and normally double the actual fare. Telling guest the amount which about the same what the taxi would charge when boarded. In actual the fare is half or less. Another going the a longer way to get more when on meter. A simple example is hotel to airport 500 peso, 250 peso tax and 50 to 100 peso tips. Total sum 800 to 850 peso. If by taxi on meter is ONLY 142 pesos So tell you the whole story. From airport to hotel I paid 194 peso with a bid of heavy traffic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"BEST WESTERN LA CORONA, MANILA"
I had a very pleasant stay, and for the money, it made for me an excellent stay. In all probability, in my next visit to Manila, I would not give a second thought about staying with them again.

"manila on a budget"
check in was smooth about 20 minutes by taxi from airport. Room was clean and comfortable, they gave me an upgrade but only one ac unit meant it was working overtime in 36*c heat.

"Mabini Street Gem !"
I love the Philippines and the 5 days I spent at the Best Western were very comfortable. I was pleased with everything about the hotel. Of course there was no aircon in the hall...who cares. And it's on Mabini Street, typical local Philippines. The room was great, the staff was great and the food was great. I'll go back. If you're too spoiled and fret […] the little things then go stay at The Makati Shangi-la for $250.00 a night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"First time in Manila"
The hotel seems to have been renovated recently. It had a Spanish colonial air to it. The newly installed elevator was not working the day we arrived, so we had to "hoof it" up four flights of stairs. The hotel staff, particularly at the front desk, were most helpful and spoke very good English. The breakfast was OK, but I thought the hotel restaurant […] was better for drinks than for food. One good thing the hotel had was cars with driver waiting outside. The hotel staff would make the arrangements for us, and this spared us the trials and tribulations of dealing with taxi drivers on more than one occasion. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We spent 5 nights here, and it was nice from the beginning. The buffet breakfast was excellent, eggs and bacon each day, with the best fresh mango and pineapple juice and milk. it was the best.

"Great Value for the Money (no doubt)"
Reading the review caused me to stay here... so hopefully this will help you. I stayed in 5 different places in the Philippines and this was the best. Again, no elevator but the walk up the stairs not bad. The hotel staff would help move baggage with no problem. They did not have hand out for tip either. A "3" in the Philippines is not the same as […] a "3" here in USA. The room was very nice and comfortable. The bathroom was very nice. I loved the shower. Oh, don't use anything in the room unless prepared to pay for it (bathroom stuff, refrigerator, etc.). I learned hard way. After you check out, they send staff up there to add up what you used; it is then taken out of the deposit. I almost felt that the purpose of the deposit is to get you to spend more. The room was very nice. The beds are different but okay. The room cooled off quickly. There was a table or desk against the wall which was nice for internet use. I-net was free. Another place was 100 pesos. The breakfast (included) was outstanding. In fact, I almost went back to the hotel for this reason. It is so nice starting off the morning with a great breakfast. Location to several currency exchanges was good. The area is a little "seedy". I walked out of the exchange and there was a little boy (3-5) being bathed there. He was brushing his teeth and spit on my shoe. It made me sad to see so many things like that. The room was great. Hotel staff .. great. If I went back to Manila tomorrow.. I'd stay here again.

"Now even better then before"
The hotel has been going through a renovation for a while now and is almost complete. I loved it before and it is even nicer now. Our room was outstanding and compared to comparable hotels in Manila a very reasonable rate. As usual the staff made sure anything we asked for we received quickly. The included breakfast buffet was also quite satisfying. […] I have read negative reviews for this hotel that I absolutely will refute and as far as the neighborhood goes, well it is Manila, so you must know what you are in for, however I felt perfectly safe walking anywhere day or nighttime. We ate dinner one night around the corner at Restaurante D'Amore and it was excellent as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Manila is fun city!!"
Before my wife and I have chosen Best Western Hotel La Corona Manila, we went back and forth reading reviews from others who have stayed there. We arrived Feb 17th, at 12:30 AM, and the elevator was still out of commission due to renovation. However, we did not meet any problem at all because, the hotel provided porters to carry our luggage into our […] room. We were satisfied from the very beginning. Morning breakfast is great, the food attendants were very courteous, even their trainees were good. Despite of some negative comments from the previous customers, we didn't find the hotel negligent of our needs. They are always attentive to our needs. Questions pertaining to the surroundings were answered diligently and was very helpful in giving us tips about travel to other locations. Daily newspaper is available, need a taxi, they will get one for you. Need breakfast deliver to your room, you will get. Need additional towel, they will provide. Of course, the hotel location is not like Waldorf Astoria like New York. The poverty and seedy environment didn't bother us at all. We walked around and familiarize ourselves and found the place with friendly people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed here our last night in Manila. The room was clean, internet was fast and location was OK.
