Reviewed 24 September 2013

location: located in a typical residential area/brgy, bystander around, drinking,singing in the streets, hard to find as you will not expect that this Inn i really at that area.

room: like you are inside a doll house (all is miniature- small cr/small/room etc), TV cable signal is not good, hard to watch, room is clean but there's smell that so annoying..

staff: just ok, not that friendly but not that rude..

Rate: decent rate but still you can find another good hotel/inn/motel better to this Inn

Security: KUDOS! lots of CCTV!
, i think your paying for that CCTVs...hehehe

Its a small single room converted into a 1 bedroom hall, the hall & toilet are created using partition.
Stayed only a night, the rooms was clean. The AC was placed below the bed so it would be directly on people sleeping.
We forgot that the break-fast was complimentary as the didn't inform us while checking inn, only while getting into the taxi they informed about the breakfast(which was couple of breads).
None the less its a low-cost accommodation in quite expensive makati city. U can stay here for a night if u don have any other option.

-AC inconveniently positioned in the rooms,keeps your feet cold all night,makes it difficult to sleep

-Difficult to locate the place late in the night with no directions anywhere around (We reached@10pm)

-I wouldn't rate the service quality high coz the guy didn't even inform that we had booked a breakfast inclusive room.After checking out & when we were about to catch the taxi,he tells us that we could have had breakfast. I wouldn't recommend this place to other travellers if the hotel wants to cheat us this way.We aren't even informed what we have paid for!!

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room towards the end of the corridor to avoid carrying luggage up the stairs

This is not a Hotel, it is a block of condos marketed as an Inn, but with some long stays there. The rooms are small, about 15 M2, but workable for a short stay. If a couple, it is tight, but manageable to get the head down and a shower. The neighbourhood is quite safe with normal precautions. Taxis are not frequent, but easily available on the main road. Most importantly it is clean, secure, and value for money if this is what you are looking for. There are similiar and better places in the same price range, but that would be unfair to say this place is not what it says it is. Everything is clean, works, and I found service (though limited) was pleasant. The reservation was smooth through JJ, and everything was done properly, I asked for and got a room with some internet connection. It is a failing of the staff and management that they don't seem to understand how to wire/configure/setup the wifi properly, I won't go into technical detail, but they do not have it set up correctly for multiple users. Enough on that, they do not promise internet in the room, and they went out of the way to get me a connection, which when on, was fantastic, the other 50% of the time, was marginal, but useable. But again, they do not promise. Little sad, as a pro would have it sorted throughout in a few hours.

This is most suitable for a self employed businessman, or someone on a budget. It is fine for that and for a short stay, the week rate is fair, I think, for business in MCBD as the taxi is short. Maybe for a lie in on a stop over. But given the poor value of hotels in Makati and nearer to the airport, this would be an option. Not however for someone expecting 3* or a hotel for that matter, but for someone wanting clean, secure, and reasonable privacy. Aceeptable for the price.

Room Tip: Ask about Internet first, lower floor ok, as they close street at night

We booked the hotel with telephone call to a Lady that confirmed our booking at 1188php per night by text message transmitted to us, from a hotel staff member on +639258967888
On arival the price jumped to 1480php because they forgot to tell us that the 1130php was for a single bed and also the tax and charges need to be added. I was happy to look furthur for a different Hotel closer to our destination! The hotel is badly placed and you need to ride a taxi or drive a car to get to places of interest.

We booked for this hotel to spend the night before our flight to CDO. We checked in very late since we went around MOA. To our disappointment, the location of this hotel is so poorly situated. We spent Php200 for taxi since we went around JP Rizal and Poblacion to ask for this hotel. Some locals don't even know about it. Then, when we finally arrived, we were placed on hold for quite some more time since they need to clarify my online booking. Someone has to call someone pa to clarify it. This is so disappointing because we were so tired as we were still from Baguio early that morning and walked around MOA the whole afternoon!
