I knew after paying 1500 peso (£25) a night for a room in Makati, especially along Makati Ave I wasn't going to be over whelmed with what was a head of me. Check in went smoothly enough after booking through "Aisarooms" although the young chap who arrived to take me and my luggage to the room was casually dressed in jeans and t shirt, no ID & no name badge he could have been anyone. The room was very much like the hotel foyer which is located on the 4th floor, dark & dank although brightened up by a well decorated Christmas tree, the carpet in the room looked as if it could have done with a shampoo and showed signs of server wear & tear around the bed area, air con was ok, TV ok, bed comfortable, but laying on bed ones eyes wondered around the room where I could see signs of damp & dry rot. There were no light bulbs in the two bedside lights and the main light wasn't that bright, I as unable to draw back the curtains in order to gain more light as these were fixed and when I did manager to look outside the glass was that dirty that any view was obscured. The bathroom was clean and pleasant and all was fine with the facilities , shower had good pressure and a good mix of hot & cold water, the shower curtain had mould around the bottom which was a put off.
Buffett breakfast is severed on the ground floor or what appeared to be the basement, very limited choice and cold, but for 203 peso it was expectable, filtered coffee is served but if a coffee is ordered from the Café through room service one is given 3 in 1.
The staff are pleasant enough as one has come to used to when in the Philippines and being located along Makati ave makes this a hotel within easy reach of all local amenities, you get what you pay for here!
