Considering the hotel's location, this is one of the better deals in Makati. The accommodation might not be as opulent as its neighbors; it doesn't have their huge sun-filled lobbies or fancy restaurants - in fact, their lobby consists mostly of just a reception desk and some chairs to use while waiting for a cab. However, considering one would easily pay 3-4 times more for a room in those other hotels, and you can walk to them (just a block away) to enjoy their amenities, it's actually not a bad deal. Breakfast is provided buffet style, you can choose from the downstairs restaurant which provides Filipino-style breakfasts, or the Swiss Inn restaurant on the second floor which provides a more western-style one. Again, nothing very fancy for breakfast, typically one soup, three choices of meat, a vegetable option, sides of rice or bread, an omelet station, and fruits / drinks. The hotel room itself is pretty decent, for our 3-week stay it was very clean all the time, and very quiet. ...
Overall the place was clean, safe, quiet and roomy. Room Service was quick, and staff were very polite. There was a variety of food for their breakfast buffet which was great......unlike other places where it was the same thing every day. This is the second time we stayed at this place for the year 2010. This time I had a complaint with the front desk. I had 3 Incoming Calls from my aunt and she left messages for me to call her back as soon as I came back to the hotel. I felt so bad and upset because I did not get the message and my aunt waited for my call until late in the evening. Usually I would find an envelope slipped underneath the door. Another issue: I never got a fax that I was expecting from a local office which was faxed 2 consecutive days. I also tried to follow up the business office. Finally the sender decided to SCAN the document and emailed it to me, after getting frustrated.
The hotel offers excellent value for your money, mainly because of its location. If you are used to international standards, this hotel would fit your needs. It is a good walking distance from the Glorietta and Greenbelt shpping malls.The rooms are clean and modern. The service is friendly and competent. The restaurant offers a satisfying breakfast that comes with the price of the room. Don't expect a top class breakfast but it is good enough to fortify you for a moring of walking and shopping. The lobby is small but there it is not crowded. Security is excellent - there is a security guard when you walk into the premises from the street and another when you drive into the hotel. A mirror that can look under the car is used to detect any explosives. There is a cute yellow labrador that sniffs your luggage for contraband or explosives.
property is located in a busy street were you could hear it from your room if you are staying in the front of the hotel. get a room in the back of the hotel to avoid the noise. both restaurant have free wifi as long as you are eating there. hotel staff are all corteous and helpful. hotel is walking distance to the main shopping center of makati, plenty of restaurant to choose from. would stay here again on my next trip.
