Yes....it helps. Thank you. I think she will also stay in a hotel for her interview. How much was Bayview Park for 1 night stay?

My wife would like to ask about names of hotels near st. lukes medical center. For those of you with experience about that, we appreciate your replies.

If you are for the nearest location, hotel soriente is the nearest, just cross the street and a few steps and you are in St. Lukes. I was there last March and the rate was P1,600/night. Nothing fancy.

We stayed at Lotus Garden Hotel for our medical exam and interview. It's conveniently located somewhere between SLEC and US Embassy, and only a short walk to both.

Do you remember the cost per night for 1 bed?

Lotus looks nice.

Is anyone trying to do their medical and interview in one trip? If so, how many days before the interview do you need to get there for the medical? I do not want to push it too close.

If possible, I would like to have her do the medical, CFO and interview in one trip. Is this possible?

Is there a way to book flights in the Philippines as cheap as the online Philippine Air price? Or can she just buy at the airport or is it more expensive?

Thanks.

Lotus Gardens looks nice. Should I have her dine at the hotel or is there somewhere nearby that is reasonable? She will be there for several days so it is going to add up.

ChowKing is right beside it. On the next block, there's Jollibee. 2 or 3 blocks away, there's Robinson's Mall - lots of restaurants/food stalls there.

If your looking for affordable hotel check Gran Prix hotel, they have easy bed for 799peso/night good for one person,they have also standard room for 1,200.so far, that's the cheapest hotel i found when i was there in manila.it's clean,and a walking distance to St lukes and US embassy.Lutos garden is also good one and hotel Soriente.
