The Luxent Hotel opened in July 2012 and is adjacent to South Triangle and Quezon City's famous Tomas Morato Street restaurant strip.
Asia Travel's price was good.
Having taken an extraordinary two hours from the airport on a weekday early evening by taxi, as the train (MRT) was not an option due to me having a suitcase, I was not in a good mood.
However Bobby checked me in quickly and I was soon in one of the two lifts and on the 15th floor.
The room was spacious, being carpeted in the bedroom with stripes of blue, black and yellow. It was scrupulously clean.
There was an excellent desk with a good chair, although not one on which anyone ought lean back too far. There was a desk lamp and an adjacent room lamp, along with writing paper but apart from a room service menu, no explanation of hotel facilities.
The LG flatscreen television had BBC World and CNN but lacked Australia TV.
The minibar was stocked with soft drinks and juice (P80) and beer (P100) along with chips.
There was a good wardrobe that was internally lit along with a roomy electronic safe.
Airconditioning was effective but not quite as silent as I have experienced elsewhere. There was a good kettle and free tea and coffee.
The two double beds were a bit too hard but the linen was excellent quality, although the lack of a top sheet was irritating. The bedside tables had lamps but no alarm clock.
The roomy bathroom had good lighting, a very spacious shower with instant hot water but tiles that may be slippery for an older person if not very careful. Standard free toiletries were provided. There was a makeup mirror.
Breakfast in Garden Cafe was excellent with an egg station, a terrific range of breads and pastries including delicious cinnamon twist doughnuts and fresh mango and papaya.
There was an ethernet cable in the room plus fast WiFi.
The windows are double glazed but this did not keep out all motorbike noise so choose a higher floor. However it was only a minor irritant.
The 6th floor lap pool was extremely clean and pleasant as was the adjacent gym.
The hotel also has Lush Cafe at its entrance for snacks and coffees.
Two floors of free parking are available but watch the steep ramps.
There is a Robinsons Supermarket fairly close by.
While I preferred Cocoon Hotel in QC as it is a boutique hotel, Luxent Hotel has brought international standards to growing QC which is great.
