The accommodation that I recommend to my friends, just near to any important places in Makati expecially Rockwell Center and Ayala,near the bars if you wanna hang out as its just steps away from Burgos St.The cleanliness and silence inside the room is priceless PLUS the amenities inside each room which is already great for the cheap price you pay...

NIce place to stay. Staff very helpful and friendly. Pub is down stairs and has lots of sports TV. The location is a short walk to Makati night life. Shopping centres are a short taxi ride away and the proximity to most of the Business heart of Makati is again a short taxi ride away.

I found this place by walking along Kalayaan St (One block from the infamous Burgos St). Took a photo of their price banner and booked online. The price and location are the main reasons for staying in this Inn but I did find it clean and acceptable. It's quite small and I had to leave before I intended because I... More

However Howzat is the exception to the rule by putting the non smoking area in a small... More

Recently stayed here for two weeks. The room is basic, cheap but comfortable. The only complaint I had was the noise of the traffic starting at 6am, but not a lot the hotel can do about that. My room was on the 1st floor and road side, possibly the inner rooms would have been quieter. The bathroom is small but... More
