Stayed here for about 12 days on a second business trip to Bonifacio Global City. My first trip was at Best Western Premier F1.
First what I liked about it.
Location was more convenient in my opinion. Seda Hotel is pretty much right on the High Street strip unlike Best Western which was a little bit out of the way. After work, a walk to High Street for dinner and then it's a quick short walk straight to the hotel. For a business traveller who needs to get drinks and snacks to facilitate the stay, being close to Market Market is also a bonus too.
The whole hotel looks and feels a whole lot newer and contemporary. The overall feel of the hotel is that it is a nice, warm, bright feel, especially to the room. My room also faced east, towards Serendra and in the distance, the beach. The 5am sunrise beaming into the room was excellent.
The bed, room amenities, etc. was good and well done. The standard which most would expect in a hotel room. The service is good. Staff were all friendly and hospitable. No complains there.
There are a few areas that I did find lacking which could be better.
Firstly, on the first night I was there, I had troubles adjusting to the shower. The water would turn hot and cold, then hot and cold again. It was either too hot or too cold and it took me a few tries before getting it right.
The buffet breakfast was definitely lacking. It was merely a bar with about half of the standard selection of most hotel buffet breakfast. The selection was about 90% the same from one day to the next too. I thought there could be more variety in the selection.
When I wanted to power my laptop on the study table, I did find that the power strip for the study table wasn't working right but I was able to power my laptop with no issue using another outlet.
I was hoping to get a swim at the hotel but was disappointed at what I saw. It was merely big enough for a few people to sit around. Maybe children will get a good swim in there but don't expect to get a good workout. I also noticed that the late afternoon sun shines directly on the pool. It maybe glaring while you're in there.
Overall I definitely enjoyed my long stay there. If I went back to Bonifacio Global City for business, I would definitely go there if it was a short trip.

Thank you for staying at Seda on your 2nd visit to BGC. We are glad that you found our location convenient, and our facilities according to your expectations. We had to re-balance our water temperature recently and this affected some areas. As regards the power strip, there may have been a loose connection but we do preventive maintenance to avoid similar incidents. We apologize for any inconvenience these may have caused. Our hotel is not as big as those of major international chains. However, we have endeavored to provide business and leisure travellers a complete range of facilities that cater to their basic needs. The pool, for instance, enables our guests to enjoy the water on a hot day or do short laps during their spare time, and of course, for children to have fun in. We hope to see you again soon.
