The A.Venue Hotel
Ranked #40 of 86 Hotels in Makati
Reviewed 14 August 2009

Good points: Relatively new hotel, room is OK. Price is acceptable in the Philippines standard. I think hotels in the Philippines are usually over priced.
Disliked: The bathtub is really a disaster (Look at picture and you will understand). I am a very small sized person, but still found it so difficult to shower. Moreover, the water pressure is low as usual. This hotel MUST remove all this type of bathtub before a fatal accident happens inside the bathroom. Besides, I think the fixtures and fittings of the studio are not bad, but the design is kind of stupid. For example, the very noisy air-conditioner is fixed inside the bedroom while the quiet split-type one is fixed inside the living room. The fixing locations should have been exchanged. Likewise for the 2 sets of TVs. Besides, this is kind of a serviced apartment, but there is not any tableware, or microwave. Only 2 cups, 2 glasses, and a coffee maker.
I paid Php250 for taxi from Airport to this hotel and Php400 from this hotel to Airport.
