What more can you ask for for the princely sum of around €70/night??
This is unashamedly an apart hotel. For the above relatively meagre sum you get a very reasonable size apartment right on Makati Avenue, with a supermarket and small shopping mall 50m away. Its also right on a jeepney route for the Fort and all manner of other places across Matro Manila, and just 5 minutes up the road there's Ayala Avenue, Greenbelt and Glorietta malls. (120 pesos cab ride or 8 pesos jeepney). Other direction you have Rockwell and the Power Plant Mall % minutes by cab. This place is right in the heart of Makati, great location.
Reception are (contrary to some reviews) polite and helpful. Wifi (also contraty to some reviews) is perfectly adequate unless you want to stream movies. The room (apartment) is spotlessly clean. Room service is just fine, (so what if ice costs 70 pesos, there is a fridge in the room, use it. Freeze the ice and keep it all week). Maid service is simply spot on. The apart hotel has 3 pools, well maintained, clean, and w poolside bar. Plus gym on the same floor.
Really, you simply can't knock the place. Quality/price is excellent.
Unles of course you want to pay 70€ and have the expectation of getting the same level of service and quality of food you get from the likes of the Fairmont, Shangri La or Mandarin all just up the road. But hey, their rooms are upwards of 6000 pesos a night and breakfast is another 20€+. So people, lets get real. This place is a steal. And the staff are good people who make an equally good effort. Remember, above the 5th floor these are residential so it - the servie - has to be. Because the residents are paying for it like the hotel guests...
My stay was excellent. The hotel (reception) was flexible to a fault. And Makati is right on your doorstep. What on earth is there to whinge and moan about??
To those of you who read this and who dont want excellent quaklity/price, I say go for it. I, or should I say we, weren't disappointed - to the contrary, we were really very pleased......
