“Great Deal! for a 2 bedroom Suite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

We arrived at 3pm and the checkin was smooth and fast. The 2 bedroom suite was a great deal at P3,500 NETT! booked through the hotel website. These are brand new condo units so you can't go wrong. The location is great with many restaurants just a few steps away from the condo. There is Italian, Japanese, burgers, coffee bean and a Chinese Dimsum/hotpot place. We didn't use any of the amenities since we are only here for an overnight stay to meet up with friends and relatives.
We are here during the All Saint's Day long weekend so the place is quiet.
Like: Introductory price of P3,500/night, free unlimited wifi internet access
Dislike: None.

The hotel is located beside A. Venue Hall, an exhibit hall where they hold events, parties and disco/club parties. The noise and the din emanating from the hall keeps you awake until the wee hours of the morning.

The hotel is callous to the complaints of guests and residents - they best they can do is provide ear plugs.

I don't think this is a Wellness or Spa hotel - the noise can keep you awake the whole night!

If you need rest and comfort during your stay.. avoid this hotel

Honestly, I prefer A Venue 10 times more than Dusit Hotel. Why? The interior is modern and stylish compare to the granny flat style of the Dusit, wooden floorboards compare to the ugly old carpet in the Dusit. Yes, the breakfast is much better in Dusit (more choices), but hey, I rather eat out than staying in a old-fashioned hotel like the Dusit. OK, the only complain I have is the location: you need to take a taxi to Greenbelt/Glorietta, but as mentioned before: taxi cost hardly anything (around PHP50-70). The female receptionist at the A Venue was a bit arrogant and not a smile from her, but the rest of the A Venue people were ok.

Anyway, I think the most important part is that you feel comfortable in your room, which I certainly did. My room came with an suite and a kitchenette, which included a sink, fridge, microwave and water kettle.

Also, I experienced that the location of this hotel was by fare quieter than the the Dusit (less traffic noise). The room I had in Dusit had a door to the next room which enabled me to hear any conversations they had in the next room, but most annoyingly I was able to hear the blaring of the TV early from in the morning till late at night! Also the ringing of the elevator door is very noisy I still heard it from my room, which a fare way away!

After staying in budget accommodations on Boracay it had a huge "WOW" effect on me when I saw my room in the A Venue. Trust me, you can't do wrong with this one!

Great hotel in Makati. Nice and clean room, very comfortable bed, big bathroom and a great view. The location is good but Makati is not a touristic part of Manila. Taxis are cheap and you can go anywhere. I would recommend this hotel, especially if you are on your first trip to the Philippines.

I really cant give a full review as of yet since this hotel is not yet fully operational as of the month of Sept 2010. Hopefully, at least they don't consider their service as fully operational. Though, they already have everything that is a "need" in the hotel. Oh wait, they don't have an in-house resto yet, not sure if they're planning... and that's a need. And the other stuff they don't have yet are the , gym, pool, parking and maybe some more. But as of now, you can use those amenities mentioned in the neighboring hotel...and yes... even the complimentary breakfast. It maybe just a few steps away from their hotel but it is still an inconvenience. but the whole place is really clean, room is superb, oh... cold/hot water is a bit tricky, there was a time there was no hot water in the shower. So, like i said... almost there, just a li'l bit more work.

Plus points:
1) Location has a few eateries within walking distance

Minus points
1) 1 bedroom has a extended single bed and the other one had a single bed. The single bed did not even have an attached toilet nor TV in the room!
2) The shower have 2 settings EXTREMELY COLD and COLD. There is not even any resemblance of hot water at all!
3) The counter staff are all living in a whole of their own, even after repeated simple instructions, they just nod their head, say yes and then things are not done.
4) A lot of taxis around that area do not want to switch on their meters and just want to negotiate a flat fee
5) Breakfast, cannot make it
6) no smoking rooms available. This a first for me, a service apartment with no smoking concept
7) flies in the toliet

Took a 2 bedroom service apartment with my colleague. Another team had the same arrangement. They told us they ran out of keycards, so housekeeping had to open the door for the other team's room.
