“hospitable staff , clean room, reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

My bf and i stayed here for a week. Though the hotel was hard to find, it was all worth it when we got to the hotel. The staff are helpful and courteous, clean surroundings, simple yet modern designed furnitures and properly taken care of. The room was clean, no unpleasant smell, bathroom was so clean it doesnt have molds or dirt in between the floor tiles. Complete with shampoo, soap, condtioner. Complimentary water and coffee. The bed is so comfy, pure white cotton bedsheets and a very soft comforter. Sink, faucet, bowl, microwave, fridge are intact and again,..clean. The only downside of our room was the outside view it was completely blocked by walls. Well bec. The hotel is limited in extent or space since small buildings, resto, apt. are closely narrowed from one another. But the overall experience was delightful. We will definitely come back here. Kudos!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Stayed 6 nights. Location is good since it's within walking distance of a few restaurants.

Their biggest challenge is that taxi drivers don't know the small street where they're located. Just ask for "Makati Palace Hotel" and walk one minute from there.

The inhouse restaurant (Bistro Mondo) is great. Seperate review on it.

You can get cheaper rooms in this area, but this one is clean and safe. Desk staff is somewhat uninformed about tours and Manila geography.

The big pluses for me was the free WiFi, the fridge, and aircon. The shower was isolated, so that the toilet area didn't get flooded (like many places in Asia).

Cost was about $60. Per night.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

I stayed 2 nights at Alley 8 apartments and paid 42 Euros/night for one deluxe room. The pictures displayed in some internet websites are not reflecting the reality. This hotel/apartment in grey is located in the middle of skyscrapers in Makati.The room was of average quality, the size small. The mentioned safety box was in fact a drawer with a key to lock it!The bed was good, the bathroom as well, but the water was cold/warm.There is no room service!Bed and bathroom still a mess when i came back after a trip in Manila. I left at 9 am and was back at 4 pm! The paid price of 42 Euros is really a shame for this hotel. In Thailand, i would have paid the half price for that kind of accomodation.
