“Nice and comfortable room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We have stayed here only for 1 night but we were so suprised how much comfortable room we get. We were 4 and we get room with 2 bedrooms (one double bed, 2 quite big beds), living room (sofa, coffee table, tv, armchair, dining table with chairs), kitchen (unfortunately with no kitchen gadgets) and 2 bathrooms (unfortunately one without shower head:)) The staff were very kind and helpfull (or at least tried to:)). Only the cleanliness could be better (dont look under the sheet) and they could repair the shower.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The property is near to food chains & a Shopwise supermarket..
We booked a Two-Bedroom Suite.. The rooms were fairly clean & really spacious.. We had a small kitchen with a big fridge & a TV, but no microwave or water heater.. although they gave us a big Thermos with hot water when we checked in (which amazingly stayed hot for more than 24-hours !).. The Wi-Fi is only available at the lobby..
This hotel has a 24-hour front disk & provide a safety deposit box for the guests.. but no elevator..
The hotel is surrounded by buildings so there is nothing you could see from the windows..
We had problem with ants in the living room.. other thing we found disgusting is that whenever someone in the room above flush the toilet we could see the water showering outside our bathroom window :(

But I still recommend staying here..

I highly recommend the El Rico Suites, we have been here in the hotel for the last week and have been very happy with the cleanliness of the place, the staff and also the service which we have recieved.

My wife is a particular lady, and therefore everything had to be just right, and it was, clean towels, sheets etc available everyday, room cleaned and everything was left in its place and not disturbed.

The El Rico is not a high class hotel, with Bars and a restauarnt, but more a home away from home that we shall be happy to return to time after time. If you want a plastic, high class hotel, where the staff are plastic too, then don't stay here, But if you wanted to be treated like a member of the family, looked after, cared for then El Rico Suites all the time

Room Tip: El Rico is in Makiti City is the business hub of Manila, close to everything, the airport ( 850 pes...

their photos looked good so i said to my self "hey why not staty here, its cheap, its in makati!"
truth is its not it is quite far from the actual hub of makati.

During my 6 night stay or should i say ordeal in that wretched place. I suffered a faucet that did not work, a shower that was busted and bed that was well worn, it had no cushion anymore. it could not get worse was what i felt. But i spoke too soon. as day later. when i unpacked all my things i was asked to move to a new room which was worse than the last one. Also, the place had no working lift.
this i thought maybe im just being too picky but after the trip i spoke with my friends who were with me and they all said the exact same thing.

WORST HOTEL EVER!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2011

This property is located along Metropolitan Avenue which is really convenient since it's close to 3 fast food chains & a shop wise supermarket. The property is not new but its clean. We reserved a Family suite room at a very affordable rate and I can say it's a bargain & we got a huge room for a party of 5. Our room has a reception area, 2 comfort rooms which is not common for a family room, & 2 bed rooms. The room has 2 sofas, a color TV and a couple of lampshades. It has a huge refrigerator in the kitchen area but no microwave which is kinda disappointing if you want to reheat or cook something. Sleeping comfort is ok though I find the bed a little hard but overall the room served it's purpose. Wifi is only available in the lobby and no connection inside the room. If you're travelling in a group I highly recommend this place.

NOT RECOMMENDED!! We checked into the hotel and clearly its the not what you would think from the pictures. As of Sept 21, 2010 - there is NO INTERNET WIFI. The clerks at the front desk were clueless and all they could offer was "we have not had that in awhile". I asked about this coffee shop they claimed to have and its "down the street". The massage parlor is someone they call. They don't even have an iron!! I asked and they said there's a laundry service next door. The worst part of it all, there's brochures in the front desk claiming they have all these amenities and the staff doesn't think it there's anything wrong with lying about it!!

Also, they give you 2 small towels and that's it (no hand towels). I wend downstairs to ask for some extra towels and they wanted to charge me 150 pesos per towel!! Ridiculous!!

When you walk outside, be cautions. There's a lot of homeless and kids sleeping on the sidewalk. There is an internet cafe next door for 25 pesos/hr. I would definitely not walk around that area alone if I was a female.

The beds are like sleeping on the floor! If you're going to pay 1,500 pesos you'd definitely get a better room and location somewhere else in Makati!
