Hop Inn Hotel: Our seaview room experience

Three months ago, I won a free staycation from Traveloka from their #TravisTravels and #CrazyEasyTravels promo at UP Town Center and just this August, we availed it! Let me share to you our experience in Hop Inn Hotel Ermita.

Why I chose Hop Inn Hotel Ermita branch? What caught my attention is their Seaview Room. From there, you can have a beautiful sunset view from Manila Bay.

No sunset view as we had a bad weather during our stay 🙁


This hotel just recently opened some of their branches across the Philippines started last 2016. It’s originally in Thailand. It is designed for budget-conscious business and leisure traveler. At Hop Inn, they will welcome you with their “4 Pillars Promise” which are COMFORT, CLEANLINESS, CONVENIENCE, and SECURITY. Hop Inn Hotel is the perfect choice for business trip or vacation.

Hop Inn Hotel Ermita has 9th floors.

Now, let me tour you to the hotel by sharing some of our pictures during our stay.


As you enter the door, their spacious lobby will welcome you. Huge, comfy couch will accompany you while waiting for checking in.

7/11 is just beside the hotel so you don’t need to worry if you’re hungry or need something. It has also a cafe located at the other side of the hotel. You can have your breakfast there as the hotel doesn’t offer breakfast meals.

Upon checking in, they will ask you for a valid ID for confirmation. After that, they will give you 2 key cards (which I didn’t have a pic). One is for your personal key and the other one is for you to left in your room.

Even their hallway is spacious. Look!

It has an open closet and a safety vault inside the room.

You can also order food online and delivered it straight to your room just like what we did.

For the cr, it has clean towels, hair dryer, tissue, and soap & shampoo. The cr is spacious too.

My only decent photo with the view.

The room is simple. Since it’s a hotel, expect the room to be small. But if you’re there just to sleep and rest, it’s good to go. There is space for luggage in case you came from the airport.

The room is clean and bright. Actually, the hotel itself is covered with blue and yellow color that makes it really bright.


The rates are very affordable yet it will give you comfort and relaxation! One of the cheapest hotel in the heart of Manila.

The staff are very polite and accommodating. From time to time, someone will knock at your door to ask you if you need anything (eg: water). By the way, they already have free complimentary bottled of water inside the room when you check in.

By the way, you can also do early check in just like we did.


Since it is a hotel, don’t expect any kitchenware or tools from them.

The room has bed, safety vault, hangers for clothes, work station, cable TV, fast internet connection. I had a bit problem regarding with their WiFi. It seems not working in all mobile phones. I can’t connect my other phone (Huawei) in their WiFi though the other one (Samsung) works well. I don’t know what’s the problem with that. But anyway, it’s okay. I just used my other phone for browsing the whole time of our stay there.

For the cr, they have a hair dryer, clean towels, tissue, and soap & shampoo.

If you need anything, just call their staff at the lobby. They have 24-hour front desk.


They have few branches now in the Philippines. They also have branches in Thailand. This branch is very accessible and easy to find as they are found in the center of Malate. Nothing to worry about where to eat because it is surrounded by 24-hour convenience stores and restaurants.

By the way, they have a parking space also.
