The Somerset is very centrally located in Makati, it's a close walk to local restaurants and an easy walk to the outdoor shopping area GreenBelt.
We had a joint room with two bedrooms and a living and kitchen area. The room served well for our 5-night stay. We had a giant fridge to tuck away beers as well as a large dining table to grub down on take-out.
The staff here at Somerset are generally pretty good. We were always greeted with a hello and a smile from the security guard, he was always accompanied by a very cute labrador. The dog was some type of security dog, but it didn't seem interested in doing anything but napping it out in the shade on the cool tiles. We made fast friends with the dog.
The breakfast buffet here is a bit of a wreck, and so is the restaurant on the second floor. We chose to schmooze over to the beautiful park across the street from the hotel everyday for breakfast. There are some really great restaurants in this small triangular park, and it's just a 30 second walk from the Somerset. This park is very cool, lots of joggers going round about from morning till midnight.
Somerset is great for what it is, the only improvements could come in the form of better food at the restaurant and a better swimming facility. The pool here is a bit lacking, pity in the extremely hot weather of Manila...
All in all, this was a great stay...
