We were surprised the amenities are complete. The room was cozy and very relaxing for a weekend getaway. Room was quiet and we felt the privacy inside it. I like the bed. It's not that soft and not too hard either. Very comfy.
However, we just don't appreciate that housekeeping barged in our room even if we haven't checked out yet. The room was a no smoking room but when you go out in the hallway, you can smell the cigarette smoke which might be coming from the other room.
The food was surprisingly nice, the suite was spacious and clean and service was good.
The lifts where slow, there where ants getting in the bin, there was no tin/bottle opener the cutlery was very poor and miss matched and the lock on the balcony door was broken, no washing soap for cleaning dishes and cups ect.
Room service and housekeeping staff were very efficient and friendly...I Would hire any one of them!
Room service: while the food was very good, it was a little frustrating. The pancakes are accompanied by only one-third to one-fourth as much syrup as an average eater would like (in my opinion). Also, room service meals come with no napkins or utensils. Guests are supposed to use the utensils provided in the kitchen of each room. However, the 'hotel' does not provide any dishwashing detergent for cleaning those utensils, nor dish towels for drying them. -- Miscellaneous: if you sit on the sofa, in front of the tv, be prepared to be frozen by the aircon unit. As with every other hotel in this country, the Internet service is a rip- off...incredibly expensive for mediocre speed. --There are two small elevators for a very busy building: when I was checking out, it literally took me 16 minutes to get from the 18th floor to reception. -- Water pressure in the shower was inadequate
Good nightlife close by.
The hotel looks old and run-down, as do the rooms.
The place is very accessible. You can walk at night to go to Glorietta Malls, Greenbelt, The Landmark malls. It is also walking distance from the hotel to the Ayala Triangle. At night, you can also go and see bars and pubs... There is also a shop nearby where you can buy goods and small items you need. I got also upgraded to deluxe room! The view is really amazing!
I actually do not like the smell of the lobby. Quite dark lobbies too...
I came to Metro Manila for treatment. I had chosen this hotel because it was the cheapest hotel in the area since the clinic where I underwent my treatment was located nearby.
I don't think it's worth being 3 stars and there was no hot water during my staying and no breakfast even a set breakfast.
When I arrived at 6 am in the morning, they wanted to charge me 1250 pesos for early arrival. Check in time is 2 pm. I asked how they got this figure and he said it was 1/2 the daily rate. I told him that I paid 40 usd and the half rate is approximately 750 pesos, after a discussion he agreed to charge only 1000 pesos. Upon arrival he wanted my credit card to charge the room. I thought I paid you guys the room already. But they ended up charging me for the 2 nights I hope I have not be double charged.
The best thing about the hotel is that it is located in Makati and priced fairly competitively. But, you will only like the location if you want to be around the over-priced nightclub scene in Makati.
The rooms were not in good shape...a little dirty and very run-down. The shower in my bathroom hardly worked. The rooms are spartan and just barely comfortable. Also, if you're on one of the top floors, you're going to hate the two very slow elevators. You will typically wait 5-10 mins to catch elevators down to the lobby
just good easy to move around
not clean, not good for long stay
Elevators (only 2) are terribly slox
We could really appreciate the location of this hotel. In a famous night life area and with some 24 Hr stores and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Some hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpfull. Sad it was only a minority of the hotel staff.
Some hotel staff really gave the impression they really didn't like their jobs. Getting service or information from these individuals was a real struggle. The hotel counts 34 floors but only posesses two lifts. Sometimes it took over 10 minutes to have a lift at your floor. It is possible to go up/down by using the emergency exit (stairs) but this is hazardoes especially at night. Loose tiles, obstacles and insufficiant/missing lighting. In each room one can find a list of things not allowed. But no list with possibilities. This hotel is especially orientated to Filipino guests who have different demands/expectations than Westeners. Certainly not a bad hotel. But it's possible to find more Western lodging in the same location at better cost
affordable and ca be recommended for those does not expect luxury
they can make some renovations or just refresh the rooms and make sure that everything is working properly(sink does not drain properly)
We arrived early moning. Although they had rooms available already they only wanted to let us in early i we paid an extra half day charge.
The location is a good one. Staff very accommodating. Has business center and a roof top restaurant that seemed no one was using but us. However, the food was good and reasonable cost.
Our room was in dire need of a new mattress!
The hotel is located in a "red lamp" street with lots of dancing bars
The hotel charged one night into my credit card without asking before, while they have no right to do so as in the booking policy quoted on Booked.net.
