Charter House
Ranked #47 of 86 Hotels in Makati
Reviewed 8 August 2011

We usually stay at this hotel when traveling with kids and the family because of its location which right beside greenbelt5. This is actually a 2 star hotel in a 5 star location. The place has not changed much since the 80s, but it still is popular among local tourists.

Check in was easy, but you still have to call them to reserve a room as they don't have a website still...the rooms are small but clean...the carpets have been changed, the bathrooms refurbished, and the wall papers looks the same...although its old and has seen better times it is clean and doesn't smell moldy.

Room is cleaned everyday and they do change the towels, soap is provided but they provide those very cheap types - better bring your own..hot shower is available.

Free breakfast is very basic but filling...served at the 2nd floor (actually its in the mezzanine), if your more than 6 foot tall you might hit the ceiling...

You may actually get better rates at other nearby hotels, especially the ones at makati avenue but then you have to ride the taxi if you need to come to greenbelt or glorietta area. Charter house would only be actually cheaper if you travel with kids and in groups or families as you may get connecting rooms and they are not strict with the number of people staying in the room.

Great location indeed. The room is clean but looks kinda old. As we entered the room I grab the remote and turn on the TV and it's not working, I thought it was unplugged or something and I realize the whole TV is messed up. The AC is too noisy too... The room is service is fast though, they change it to a new working TV. Too bad the deck is not open at night and the breakfast is now in the lobby. Hope the management will do something to make the guests feel more comfortable.

Everytime we visit Manila, we always stay here. The fact that i like this hotel is that of it's cheap cost. If your family wants to stay in a budgeted and convenient hotel, i surely recommend this to you guys. Why spend most of your money in an expensive hotel when you can stay at Charter House to save money and spend it with your leisures instead? :). Another thing is that, what we always look for a hotel is our comfortability of staying. Eventhough this is not a very luxurious set up, but hey, sleeping and staying with enough comfort will surely satisfy you still. Need for shopping? this hotel is located infront of Greenbelt so after those long walks of shopping just cross the street and your back to your hotel. Hungry? those resto and fastfoods are just waiting for you across the street. Banks and Pharmacies are also in walking distance. Anything you need are just across the street. About the staff and crew, they are really approachable. They respond to your needs immediately and are very friendly. Will recommend this hotel to all of you and im surely to stay in this hotel again when we get back. :) *Everyone has their own opinion but I won't lie that Im satisfied with this hotel and their service. :)

Room Tip: Just call their hotline number. :)

We chose to stay for one night at Charter House just before flying back home to our city and the moment we stepped inside our room we felt as if we are in a movie. The room looked like that of a roadside motel we often see in American movies, where a horrible slasher crime usually happens. It was a very basic room with frilly curtains, polka dotted bed covers, ancient fridge and a/c, and a cafeteria type folding table and chairs. The only "new" thing in our room was the card entry door.
The major plus point why this hotel will continue to make business is its location. LOCATION. Its being adjacent to Greenbelt and all the other shopping and dining areas will make this hotel a decent choice for those who wish to have a bed after a day of maxing out credit cards shopping and dining across. Will I stay here again? Yeah.. maybe..

Can't really recommend this place. The staff were not very nice or helpful. The location in Makati was great and there is a rooftop pool which is alot of fun. However, it's not much bigger than a hot tub and the staff seem to close the roof at strange times in the middle of the day. Rooms were reallly cramped and hot. Everything was clean but also basic and bland.

My family has stayed in this hotel many times, and are going to again in June 2010. The best about it is the location, you can walk to Greenbelt, Landmark and SM. Other hotels in this area cost a lot more. The rooms are of a basic standard but nice. You have a big fridge with inexpensive drinks and snacks. There is a small rooftop pool open in daytime. The hotel restaurant is average but on the other hand you have plenty of restaurants close by.

We had the greatest experience in Manila, esp/ Makati because of the convenience that Charter House had provided. We can't ask for more...We are sorry for those who didn't find this place great...It's near to all the places of interest--from the high ends to the affordable ends...the choices never ends....and all within walking distance! Great for all tourists! Thank you Charter House...
