“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I stayed in this hotel because of its proximity from airport. It is located in Makati, which is a 15-20 min ride from airport during moderate traffic. My stay here was really good. The rooms are clean, and quiet. This hotel has two towers, one for residential and one for hotel, the front desk will tell you which you are staying in, and arrange for you luggage to be taken to your room. The amenities include a pool, gym, restaurant and spa. I had a chance to use the spa facilities and received the most wonderful treatment there. The girls were very pleasant and accommodating. Prices very reasonable. The hotel is located across the street from a supermarket and next door to a 7-eleven, which is very convenient if you get a one bedroom suite (it includes a kitchenette). My only complain is that during lunch I tried to order room service and found out the most items on the menu that I wanted to order were not available. Overall, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Pick the one bedroom suite and take advantage of having the kitchenette and a supermarket across the...

Stayed there to celebrate the New Year. Our room had a good full view! The covered pool was great. Food was also good. Supermarket and lots of restaurants nearby. Very convenient, affordable price! It is not a classy hotel but it was good enough for the price you pay!

The place is nice but the rooms are relatively small. wifi is free but thats all about it. came in late tonight and check in was swift @ 3am. I really don't like the area. I have stayed in better parts of Makati before. The rooms are spartan for a moderate hotel. i won't be back.

Great location in Makati, restaurants in area, safe place to walk around, street market at night on weekends. Buffet breakfast was decent. Room with 2 twin bed was clean, modern enough space for 2. Great value for the area and what you get..

Room Tip: Lower rates online compared to walk-ins.

Used to be called A. Venue Suites until the hotel is managed by Best Western Plus. The Hotel is 4-years old with adjacent Antel Mall and Supermarket. It is surrounded by lots of hotels too. Our stay is better this year than 2 years ago when the adjacent building, Gramercy Residence, was still being constructed.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel. The first one was about the same time last year. It makes it eventful this year as the huge open-space parking lot (at least half of it) is now converted into a food fest called Baga Manila. This is an association of BBQ Grillers which normally ran only thru the Christmas season but has been extended until Summer of this year. Around the food hawkers are flea markets where they sell inexpensive clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories. There's a supermarket right across the hotel. With this, no need to go far.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Comfortable. I booked thru the website using one of their early bird promos. Deluxe room has a Queen bed, couch (not sure if this can be converted into a sofa bed), small dining table, mini bar, microwave, decent closet for clothes.

SERVICE: Average. Bell service not very good and needs improvement. We had 3 luggages which need to be brought to our rooms but staff was not very attentive. A bit of misunderstanding from the front office staff where I was asked upon check-out if I wanted to pay in cash or credit card. I advised it had been fully paid online at their website using my debit card. Staff said it was just for security when I entered my card number but they have not deducted the amount. I reiterated that I used a debit card and the amount had been clearly deducted from my balance and that I won't pay anything twice. After further clarifications, I was asked to sign a transaction slip. I used the same debit card when I booked at the Best Western La Corona Manila after my trip from Boracay but I had none of this experience. Staff should be trained how to handle this payment process as it causes a lot of stress upon check-out.

BROADBAND CONNECTION: Good in the rooms.

BREAKFAST: Compared to last year, it has improved after breakfast is now served at the other tower. Choice is still the same - very limited.

we stayed at A venue for one night.... the room was ok and clean and what u need is available. the staff need to be trained more on customer service and how to respond to guests in a good and fast way. we didnt try the food there as walking distance there is plenty of restaurant and bars. overall it was good value for what we paid.
