Shogun Suite Hotel
The Shogun prides itself on being a budget property with great service and a prime location. Situated in the Pasay section of Manila, this suites-based hotel is on the Zamora Street Rotonda toward the southern end of the Philippines capital city.
Guests confirm that being adjacent to the Taft rail line, which runs north/south, and the ESDA, which runs east/west, is a great way to avoid navigating Manila's congested traffic. It's just a short train ride to the MOA, or Mall of Asia, a major tourist attraction in the area, and the airport is easily accessible via taxi or shuttle service.
While there is almost always a taxi at the ready in front of the hotel, reviewers suggest that guests looking to maximize their savings make the short walk to the main road, where they'll find more taxis and better rates.
The Shogun features a small rooftop pool with excellent city views. Recent guests expressed some dismay that there is a charge that must be paid in cash for towels, but rave about the pool and view, though some also note it's not a good place for small children. There is a free buffet breakfast available, and it receives decent reviews. Guests also mention that a few fast food restaurants are within walking distance.
Reviews say the rooms are small and clean, with excellent hot water pressure and welcome air conditioning. Some rooms are quieter and have been more recently updated than others, so guests recommend taking a look at your options before committing to a specific room. Not all rooms have windows, and some have a curtain rather than a door separating the sleeping area and bathroom, so take care to ensure sure you're happy with your room.
If you're looking for a clean, affordable, no-frills hotel in Pasay, the Shogun is well worth considering.

... we walked further south, the concrete expanded into a broader area where there were a bunch of restaurants and entertainment items. Among the opportunities for enjoyment was a 40 ft. free fall bungee platform, a zip line, an outdoor barbecue selling roasted chicken intestines and something with pig's blood on it, a Hooters, a Segue course, and a motorized children's train that drives around the area. We actually rode the children's ...
... Parts of their family are in all parts of the Philippines....from the Mindanao to the Visayas to Manila. Four of them work for the Church in Davao City at the Office holding jobs in pastoring, office management, media and various other responsibilities.
The Church office is very neatly run and pleasant to be in from walking in and being greeting by the receptionist Viel to visiting with all the employees. The media and mailing departments are ...
... end of tuk tuks, massages happening at every 100m, groups of women dancing/aerobics to western and Philippines pop music (hilarious!- I got invited to join in, however not sure my two left feet were quite up for the challenge at 7.30am!) The funniest thing is just how much the Filipino people adore Westerners. I felt like a celebrity walking down this promenade...smiling and waving at everyone, responding to the 'hello ma'am", "good morning ma'am" from every second person, but ...
