“Quaint, cozy... wonderful experience...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Haven't been back to the Philippines in 13 yrs... So when my cousin who works for a well known travel magazine insisted on making our hotel accommodations we were relieved. First two nights we were suppose to stay at intercontinental in makati but they didn't have availability during the dates that we needed, my cousin suggested we try hotel Celeste, some boutique hotel... Didn't expect much but we were pleasantly surprised with our experience!
Rooms were cozy, food was great & location was perfect!
But what impressed me the most were the exceptional staff! Manager Abby was very accommodating, Jiggs in the front desk was very helpful & all the others who went above & beyond... thank you! Loved our stay here!!!
Glad Intercon didn't happen... We'll be back :)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

I stayed at Hotel Celeste for two nights in January 2014. My last trip to Makati I stayed at the New World Hotel but this trip I was only going to be in Makati for a short period. Also, I had an after midnight arrival for the first night. I hate paying for a full night in an expensive hotel when I arrive at 1-2am. There was a significant savings with Hotel Celeste compared to the New World so I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised as my room was spacious (and clean). I needed to get a computer charger (since I forgot to pack it) and it is only a 3-4 minute walk from the Hotel Celeste to the Greenbelt mall entrance across from the New World Hotel. The Wi-Fi signal was strong and I had know problems connecting and staying connected. The breakfast is a set menu breakfast and it was good. My room faced the street. The hotel is at intersection of Makati Ave. and Pasay Rd. - San Lorenzo Dr. so It was a little noisy but not enough at night to cause a problem sleeping. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you don't like street noise I would recommend asking for a room away from the street.

This is a small hidden gem in Makati area. The hotel is very clean and cosy, the staff is friendly and attentive, the breakfast is delicious, based on the menu, the location is central. Real value for money.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Stayed in one of their suites with my family for a weekend break . LOCATION: short walking distance to greenbelt 2 and 3 ( imagine New World hotel which is a literally stone's throw away , and this hotel is located just at the back). ROOM/SUITES: spacious , with a nice ambiance feel to it. i kind of liked the bed outlay and the couch, sofa , almost everything, but the flat screen tv size doesn't match the size of the suite. The bathroom was huge, and you don't feel being cramped in this one. The suite is not sound proof. WI-FI: free and fast (they have their own router for each unit ).. STAFF: the bell staff who handled my luggage when we checked in was the same guy who assists us in our check out, and it seems he is the one one in duty. the front desk staff act very professional but i won't describe it as being friendly. FOOD and BEVERAGE: they have a very small lounge and bar near the small lobby and front desk , anyway, with the many dining options just a few minutes walk from your doorstep , who cares ? And by the way there is an Italian restaurant , fine dining in concept which opens only during lunch and dinner hours. PARKING: basically none SECURITY: seems inconsistent , and not that tight SUGGESTIONS: how about trying the restaurants in the Arnaiz road area which has Asian (AyuThai ), Japanese (Tsukiji ) and continental /filipino ( Cirkulo ) helmed by a renowned chef which are included among the top selection in the culinary scene. BREAKFAST: sad to say , was quite a disappointment, although they offer buffet for bread, all they have was white and wheat bread with just a butter and jam (no toaster ?) , and the fruits ? well , forget it , presentation was not even nice don't seem fresh. They have ala carte selection but the food was quite oily although the tastes would be average at the most. Worst kind was when the server who attended to us seem like an hotel and restaurant management on the job trainee. He failed to get our orders and drinks right, and he seem to be disoriented ( to think we are the only breakfast guests ) during that time. This hotel was just fortunate to be included in the top 10 makati hotels in tripadvisor. Last thing, let me remind the readers that this hotel doesn't really belong in the good value for money category since the rates are not cheap with the standards they serve.

I have been last year to hotel celeste. it is in a good position in the best area of manila, Makati.
they guys working there are really available and can support you for whatever you need.
breakfast is great and also at the restaurant you can find a small menu but all is really well cooked.
rooms always very clean and wifi in the room very strong.
the price is more for a 4 star than for an actual 3 star hotel but it is worth!

Nice thing about this is that the room is very cozy. It may look small for some people but if you are just looking for a place to crash, then it'll do.

My only problem with this hotel is parking. There is no parking area! I had to park outside in the open air! Good thing that there was space available, otherwise I would've parked far far away.

Another potential issue for some people is that all rooms are NO SMOKING. If you have to smoke, you'll have to go to the roof deck.

This hotel can be a good option for a fine quality stay in Makati. I love the location, just few steps away and you're inbetween greenbelt 3 and landmark mall. The staffs were efficient, attentive and works well with our needs. The food was great, i like the tapa, it's tender and not oily.Breakfast serving was small but good thing they have complimentary fruits and cereals in the corner and they can serve up to 3 cups of coffee. Lastly, I love the room interior. It's elegant and stylish. King-sized bed that is comfy and the clean smell of towels and beddings. Also, the bathroom was sleek. We are on third floor with the view of the malls and intersection, view was good and not noisy at all. Ac and flat screen tv working very well unlike what we had in New World Hotel which makes Hotel Celeste the best in makati for me so far. Hope you guys will enjoy your stay here too. :)
