Average old hotel if you have no choice. TV is still crt type, beddings and cabinets are old. Feels like staying in granny's old house with the old sheets. Reception is not a welcoming sight. Needs a complete overhaul on everything.

Very old hotel, even the towels and sheets were old and worn out. Breakfast was not included in the room. The receptionist was quite rude with uncaring attitude. The location is good with walkable distance to food courts, shopping malls etc. Wifi is available only in the reception area but not in rooms.

I recently stayed at the Great Western Hotel, Makati after carefully reading all the reviews, some of which were quite negative. I personally had a positive experience and immensely enjoyed my eight night stay. I had a double bed, bar fridge, tv and nice running hot water in the shower. Yes, the hotel could do with a bit of a... More

The rooms are totally worn out with old curtains, old bed linens & other amenities. The staffs at the reception were quite unfriendly & unhelpful. Only good thing was the location, surrounded by lot of restaurants, but however we found it very difficult to get a cab after check-out while the staffs never helped us in finding a taxi to... More

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. The first trip some years ago was nice, but not so on this occasion. Booking made through Agoda some 3 months prior with requests for non-smoking room, high floor, big bed for my wife & I, not single beds & late check-in. Upon arrival, we had 2 single beds. Asked for a... More

I visited Philippines few years ago and I found this hotel in Makati. The location is very convenient but the hotel is not worth to try. Full glass walls covered with dark red curtains make you feel like being in jail. Worst and dirtiest bed ever, the rooms smell cigarettes and nothing is friendly. The hotel is more happy with...

The aircon? Defective, its not cold. The carpet? Dirty. The refrigerator? Smells like a rotting body. We nearly puke. Good thing we... More
