I was here for about 6 weeks, on a company rate, escaping the grittiness of Malate for the innocuous safety of Makati. It was not a good start in that the room quoted was not what I had expected, and I was eventually given what I had expected at a higher price. Having to sign a contract also meant that I had to pay the full amount even if my work was completed earlier. The front desk was courteous but were clearly working to a limited set of direction.
I did have a nicely renovated studio. It was open and light, unlike the studio I was initially assigned which was no different from a regular hotel room. The best part was that I overlooked the swimming pool, so the sound of the water jets was soothing, like being in a spa. Room size was good, with efficient and functional layout. The kitchenette was limited, however, and you wouldn't try to do any serious food preparation. Breakfast is available and quite a decent and somewhat varied spread.
The street is bland and boring, with a convenience store across the way. You wouldn't bother with it, as around the corner, a block away, is Rustans supermarket. And 2 blocks the other way, on Sunday mornings, is the legaspi community market. Beyond the supermarket is shopping centre galore, Greenberg 1-5, connected to glorietta 1-5, plus 3 major department stores. Restaurants galore.
The service staff is helpful when asked. The sniffer dog is very cute. The swimming pool is good for laps, and in a very peaceful setting. The gym is quite well equipped. The is a small spa, run as a separate business, but you wouldn't go out of your way for it. In all, a reasonable sanctuary for the craziness of Manila.
