    Smiling faces at the heart of China Town”

    the hospitalities of the hotel crew including the security outside the hotel amazed me..

    This Hotel offer a clean room, a very strategic location at the heart of China Town..just one step from Santa Cruz Church..near the LRT station..it's everything that you'll ever need for a Hotel. I was traveling for a business, and it's an advantage for me to stay at the Golden city hotel because place that I need to go is 168 Mall which is close to the hotel. we can just take pedicab or tricycle for 60 php...but usually we give 100 php... hehe,anyway we will surely go back to this hotel next time cheers.. God bless..

    price, near chinatown and lrt station

    golden city hotel is affordable specially in a place like manila where most of the hotels, pension houses are expensive. although the room is quite small, it is still spacious to 2 persons. they have friendly staffs and their rooms are simple yet clean. it is near the lrt station which is very convenient for me since i travel to different parts of metro manila in a very budgeted way using the lrt and mrt transport. they have a restaurant downstairs but the food is just okay. their wifi, is not that strong, you need to go to their lobby to get a better signal. its not that convenient but still, it works for me.

    great location, budget friendly, convenient”

    the location of the hotel is what got me to book here. the hotel is fairly new so the room still has that "fresh" smell to it. the room, though simple is very functional.

    every so often i go to manila for business and am always on a tight budget. i was looking for a new place to stay because i am so fed up with the lousy service that ive been getting from my old hotel. i mean, you cant really expect to get five star service from budget hotels, right? one of my friends who also frequents manila suggested this place and vouched that their service was great. i decided to try it out expecting to get the same old, tired and rude hotel staff. surprisingly, i was wrong. well, don't expect a butler and complimentary chocolates welcoming you when you check-in, but still... it's nice that a budget friendly hotel can give respectably goood service. the staff are always very helpful and though its located on a really busy street, i still feel completely safe and i was able to sleep soundly. also, the hotel room smelled nice which is a big plus. the hotel is also located just a few steps from the lrt which is very convenient for me. they also have a restaurant that serves affordable chinese meals and you may order room-service as well.

    clean budget rooms in the centre of Manila

    Golden City Hotel offers basic, clean budget rooms in the central Chinatown district of Manila. The rooms and bathroom are small but serve the purpose when only looking for a place to sleep. It's directly at Cariedo LRT station and Jeepney stops. Street markets and small shops just outside the door. Friendly hotel staff. Overall considering Manila's hotel prices, this is a good value for money option.

    Great location.. with free wifi

    Golden City is located just across Binondo and a walking distance to the bargain shops of Quiapo. It's very accesible through taxi, jeepneys and the Light Rail Transit with the Carriedo Station only a couple of meters away. The room was a bit small for me but it was clean. GC also provided all the necessities to make the traveller comfortable. However, I would have preferred to have my room housekept regularly. I had to bring my garbage out and hand them over to a staff.. Other than that, my 3 days stay at the GC was worth it.

    Location, price

    I particularly like the location of the hotel, it being near the business establishments I wished to check out. A plus is that it is very near to the Sta. Cruz Church. Also, the LRT Carriedo Station is just steps away. To experience the Chinatown in Manila, this would be the ideal place to stay. It is a relatively new hotel. The only snag is that the walls were so thin you could hear the sounds from the other room and if you are sensitive to noise, you could lose some sleep.

    staff was friendly and responded to questions and problems. first room was too close to the street,so they moved me to a quiet room. one caveat: don't ask about the neighborhood; they simply don't know much, outside of the hotel. asked to be woken up at 5:00am, but they woke me up at 4:30am! price per room was well worth the value, since they have a/c, hot showers, wi-fi and cable tv. and flexible about staying longer than initially reserved. minimal seating in postage stamp lobby. highly recommended

    Small hotel, hard to find, in middle of Chinatown”

    Clean, responsive staff, good security, surprisingly quiet inside for all the noise on the street

    The biggest problem with Golden City is that taxi drivers do not know where it is, and the phone number provided was not answered while we flailed around torturously for two hours trying to find a hotel that was really about 30-45 minutes from the airport. The hotel is located in a very busy section of Chinatown, right by the Santa Cruz church, with mostly fast food restaurants. The area is pretty dirty, with trash on the streets. The staff of the hotel did not know much about recommending restaurants, except to recommend the one in the hotel on the ground floor, which did not appear appetizing and which had terrible service which ignored us when we did try it. The room was very small with a very, vary hard mattress with a plastic cover on it. The only bed covers we could get were two sheets and an extremely thin "blanket." The shower had good water flow and was hot, although it made the whole bathroom wet, but that is typical of Asian bathrooms. The TV had very little clear reception. Wifi was great in our room, B-1, just above the front desk, but we understand that it did not reach a room just down the hall from us at all. One great perk was getting both hot and/or cold purified water delivered on request to our room at any time of the day or night. The air conditioning worked really well and kept the room quiet with its "white noise." The hotel got us a taxi right away when we left for the airport. In short, a very cheap hotel in a dodgy area. The hotel is also close to the LRT, and thus many shopping centers, etc.

    Pros: Room was clean, quiet although windowless but adequate for price with effective air conditioning and clean linen. Staff was excellent and responsive. Security downstairs. Area well lit and busy but taxis often had trouble locating it unless you said near Sta Cruz Church Cons: Water issues, we got moved from our first room as it was without water to another where the toilet quietly ran all night. Flushed with bucket.

    Economical hotel in a very convenient location

    Had to catch a ferry the next day so this was our first choice given its location and orientation towards the budget-minded traveller. The hotel rooms are cosy but adequate with a hot shower, decent-sized bed, air-con and free wifi. Ongpin isn't the safest area for a pale-white traveller at night though a police station is very close by. Very close to Ongpin and Quiapo - great for shopping. There is a 24hr Chow King in case you've got the late night munchies. Great experience overall, will definitely stay again.

    Friendly staffs, cheap, fast check in and check out

    Overall it was not so great. We stayed there for two nights. The room was so small, we kept bumping to the wall and the bed. There was a rat in our room during our last night. The toilet is very tiny, technically you can take a dump while having a bath. Maybe due to exhaustion, I get a good night sleep there. The staffs was very friendly.The location of the hotel is very hard to find by our taxi driver, so if you want to go there, just tell the driver that the hotel is adjacent to Santa Cruz church.

The food is delicious and price value. Quite near to attraction places such as Intramuros. I can ride the Jeepney to Shopping mall with a cheap fares.
