We stayed at this place as a transit place to stay. The idea was to stay here overnight so we can catch our flights back home the next day. If possible stay for some nightlife as well.
We got in early and were created warmly. The staff was very nice and had smiles on their faces.
We got to our room and it was rather nice. It had a kitchen, with pots and pans, a nice bed (but cramped in between two walls) and bathroom (which kind of needed some work, but all bathrooms in Phil needed work).
It is about an hour and half drive to and from the airport. There is a lot of places to eat. Down the street is a corner with a whole lot of street food stalls, and was probably my best meal experience in all of Philippines.
It is also not far from a Shopwise, which is equivalent to a Walmart. There is a lot of things to get if you need pack up on supplies.
There is free wifi on every floor and a safe. They gave us a map of places to eat, shop, internet and services around the area.
Some drawbacks of the place, no airport pick up (would have been nice to save the money of how taxis rip you off at the airport of double fare), and also really far from the nightlife/downtown area.
The maps here on GogoBot are incorrect of it's placement. It is actually miles northeast of the downtown area.
Overall this is not a bad place if you need to be in Makati to visit friends or family, as it is a decent price. There are cheaper if you want to visit all of Manila. The location is not that great, but the staff is very friendly and helpful.
