I have witnessed how this business has grown over the last ten years, as the result of a dedication from the long serving staff members, it is a proven example of how hard work and consistency delivers a success story.
They can`t boast of offering 4 or 5 star facilities, but they are praised with the equal professional approach, and they all execute that code to perfection.
In every aspect it is unique, and from less than 2000 p it is a budget bargain, that no one in the neighborhood can compete with. (I have stayed in many other hotels here)
It was recently renovated, bringing a new modern look, making rooms fresher and mint, including a cosy little Italian restaurant and coffee shop at the front, introducing a vivid social atmosphere among the guest.
Being at the heart of Makati, it is a stone throw from the most popular places to go out, the side streets are bustling with life, so you have everything you need at your doorstep. The most modern mall(Greenbelt), is only 5 min drive away, including the famous Ayala Triangle, the historic park with some breathing space.
This place is also safe, as you have staff guarding the front, securing no unexpected visitors will enter. And they will also arrange for your transfers to the airport which you can reach in 30 minutes outside rush hours.
They have never let me down, when I`ve asked for anything and also always replied my e-mails. I strongly recommend to book a room in advance.
I have lived in Makati on several occassions, so I speak from experience,
and it gives pleasure and a piece of mind to return to a place that never fails.
