“Good Convenient Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Nice clean rooms close to a few pubs in the heart of Makati. Free wifi. Nice bar on the roof. Free advertised music never materialised (Typhoon, Rain, ???). Internal room was inexpensive and quiet. Breakfast spread was good.

Room Tip: Inner room was cheaper and quieter.

First time I stayed in the Makati area, as I normally stay in Ermita. Was very happy with my stay at City Garden, a good selection of food for breakfast. The room was quite nice, a little dated but very comfortable stay. Hot water was warm enough, very nice pool deck at the top of the hotel and nice views over Makati. Close to the nightlife of Burgos street with its many bars and restaurants.

First time in City Garden Hotel and I really liked the hotel. Great roof top bar with a stunning view over Manila and a very nice swimming pool.
The rooms are a little bit dated but clean and everything ok. Breakfast was ok, but not so my style!
The staff is very friendly so all in all I liked to stay in this hotel.

We stayed here in Aug 2012 for 3 nights on the 17th floor, very comfortable room,no street noise,well equiped bathroom,clean and lots of hot water (good pressure) Roof bar on the 20th floor with Happy Hour Mon- Fri with beer for 49 Pps.Restaurant very good value and excellent buffet breakfast ....all you can eat choice of hot,cold,salads rice dishes, eggs etc. Staff very polite and helpful we were able to keep our room until 20.00 for a late flight. No bad points just that the 2 lifts can be very slow (waiting time)

One of the good things that travelers are looking for is a nice place to stay and paying less for a great service.They have nice room selection,spacious gym & a rooftop swimming pool with a nice view especially in the evening.Buffet breakfast is two thumbs up which you will always look forward for every morning.Staffs are helpful and attentive

My rating could've been excellent if there are things that City Garden needs to work on.They need to improve their 2 small elevators,I've waited for a little while to get to my room (good luck if your in higher floors,long wait) they should also prevent the employees using the same elevator,there was an instance where i could not get in because one of the employee have a huge bag of laundry.they should have a service elevator to avoid these scenario.Other than this issue,I was satisfied with my stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Executive rooms has Makati Ave views,some standard rooms doesn't have window,those were inner ro...

This hotel is very good for the price. They have a very nice rest on the roof near the pool. The service is excellent. The rooms are comfortable with frigde, tv, a/c, etc. They have a good gym with a nice view.

Room Tip: Dont select the rooms near the exit of each floor. Ask for the rooms with view to the city.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Hotels in Manila do not match the Bangkok standards, so I guess a different scale has to be applied. Most rooms in the upper floors have a great view on the Makati skyline. furniture is somewhat older but service and housekeeping is effective and friendly. Reception is also very friendly and efficient. The hotel is located closed to many entertainment venues and not to far from Greenbelt. The roof top pool and restaurant are excellent and staff is super friendly. However, the property is overpriced compared to the many surrounding properties.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing Makati skyline.
