I agree that the glory days of this hotel is done, but it is still a decent one. Staff are professional and excellent in the service. They absolutely makes you feel a guest in the hotel. i had good blanket and towels and surprisingly I got a mini fridge in my room and a daily complimentary news paper.

One of the oldest hotels in makati if i am not mistaken. Run down amenities - you can see this starting from the reception area until you go inside their room. Location is good though - in front of a mall and within the red-light district of Makati.

What was coming to my intention is until now I didn't see any feedback or improvement or apology from the this hotel management/owner. Is the owner or any of the management staff... More

Only, we were not given a key coz according to the front officer, they were fully booked, that's why they ran out of keys... That i... More

Although this place is quite old, it is strategically located at the heart of Makati. Staff are professional, and accommodating to your needs. It is accessible to any transportation, near to gimmick places, restaurants, and coffee shops. If you are looking for a better value of your money, this is one of the hotels i can recommend.

We stayed as a couple on May 2014.The hotel room is really old. Outside and inside of the hotel show years of its existence. The facade of the hotel, the lobby, the elevator, the aisle going to the rooms, the rooms and their restaurant seem to exude that this is a very sad place. We booked in a double de... More
