lancaster hotel manila is a condotel located conveniently along shaw boulevard in mandaluyong city. of all the condotels i have tried, this is one that i have returned to stay again due to its accessibility and affordable rates.
it is walking distance to the metro rail transit and nearby malls like sm megamall and rustan’s shangri-la plaza. it might be difficult to get a taxi on rush hours considering the area is in shaw boulevard where there is expected traffic to crossing edsa.
though the hotel is not new, they have still maintained its rich amd modern furnishings. here are the two room types i stayed in.
the one bedroom executive suite has an ample space to entertain guests. internet is provided through LAN connection. i just wonder why they still do not have wireless network in the rooms, anyway as long as i have a net connection it’s no problem for me.
the toilet and bath has available toiletries and is clean. the bedroom is quite small but the bed and the sheets was comfy.
the studio type junior suite has the same functionality as the one-bedroom executive suite.
lancaster has mixed reviews at tripadvisor, but the thing is i have been to some hotels on the same rate that is far worst. their breakfast buffet is average and service at the front desk may get slow sometimes (but a little follow-up will do).
