as many of you know i switched from the DUSIT THANI to the BEST WESTERN ANTEL earlier this year . the dusit thani is overpriced and needs a renovation.if you wish to stay in greenbelt you might want to consider the newly opened HOLIDAY INN in attached to GREENBELT. the holiday inn is open but still is in NEWLY OPENED GROWING PAINS.i will write a review of that property next. even when the HOLIDYAY INN straightens itself for my money i still prefer the BEST WESTERN ANTEL. lets get locations clear between the two ends of makati ave. location alone might decide your hotel decision. the dusit thani, new world , holiday inn are all in the greenbelt area. the BEST WESTERN anchors the OPPOSITE end of makati ave.. the distance is approx 2 miles in either direction. you can walk between the two ends in 35 minutes and it is a pleasant walk. i ususally walk in one direction and take a taxi back. the taxi ride is approx 70 pesos and takes under 10 mintues. considering all this i still prefer the BEST WESTERN and here are my reasons.
1. BEST WESTEN is value . the one bedroom suites are new and somewhat small but larger than a typical hotel room
2. the staff at the best western is excellent. security is excellent. every staff member from the front door security to the front desk to engineering is polite and courteous with a CAN DO ATTITUDE.
3. the reservations staff is prompt and replies to emails and requests in an efficient manner. you can be assured your rerservation is properly handled.
4 the BEST WESTERN is set back from makati ave. and thus has less traffic noise and is somewhat serene with the MANILA city noise.
5. the SM market place is next door. great to get groceries.
6. there is now a small outdoor market at night which provides GREAT local night market food . there is also some kind of free entertainment nightly.
7. the wireless internet which was balky and slow now works without a hitch.
there are some inconsistencies that i wish to mention. my bedframe was broken, the hot water heater was broken. my couch was broken... the refridgerator was not working. these are details that housekeeping should be trained to inspect and report BEFORE a guest check in. the UPSIDE is that when reported, engineering responded quickly and all was fixed propery within 60 minutes.
the other downfall of BEST WESTERN continues to be the BREAKFAST BUFFET. what a disappointment. there is NO EXCUSE for the deplorable breakfast that is offered. this was reported in my last review and still is not acceptable. food is brought in from SOMEWHERE else in trays with plastic covers and sits around until the HOT BINS are empty. the burners on the buffet bins are NOT adequete to keep food warm. BE AWARE. the offerins are MINIMAL an quite franky are of the lowest quality. to be fair , there is a EGG STATION with eggs prepared the way you want them, there is ONE KIND OF FRUIT of LOW QUALITY. there is cereal with WARM MILK.....what price CONVIENENCE?....take the room without the breakfast add on unless you are prepared to CHOOSE WISELY knowing in advance this is NOT a decent breakfast buffet.
still yet, if you want VALUE for your room and enjoy makati ave. i would suggest you book the BEST WESTERN. it is my HOTEL OF CHOICE in MAKATI

Room Tip: try to book a room facing makati ave. the back side of the SERENTIY SUITES has a construction site that is still in progress

visited in April and staye don a residence floor 27. this gave us access to an infinity pool on the 31st floor, which had breathtaking views! there are also available two gyms and a further two pools all allocated on lower floors. the spa is one below and a definet must!! i had a pedicure which took 90 minutes for £3.50!!! the beauticians really work hard! visited the restraunt briefly for a few beers which were expensive but thats in comparison to the seven eleven price, which is right on the left of the main entrance. the hotel itself is next door to the A.Venue Mall, so there are plenty of places close by to eat, and all taxi drivers know it all you need to say is Best Wester, by Avenue Mall on Makati Avenue. The apartment inside was comfortably furnished, air conditioning and the bedroom had fantastic views with a huge glass window! i would reccomend this hotel and would stay again!

I stayed in this hotel because of its proximity from airport. It is located in Makati, which is a 15-20 min ride from airport during moderate traffic. My stay here was really good. The rooms are clean, and quiet. This hotel has two towers, one for residential and one for hotel, the front desk will tell you which you are staying in, and arrange for you luggage to be taken to your room. The amenities include a pool, gym, restaurant and spa. I had a chance to use the spa facilities and received the most wonderful treatment there. The girls were very pleasant and accommodating. Prices very reasonable. The hotel is located across the street from a supermarket and next door to a 7-eleven, which is very convenient if you get a one bedroom suite (it includes a kitchenette). My only complain is that during lunch I tried to order room service and found out the most items on the menu that I wanted to order were not available. Overall, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Pick the one bedroom suite and take advantage of having the kitchenette and a supermarket across the street.

Stayed there to celebrate the New Year. Our room had a good full view! The covered pool was great. Food was also good. Supermarket and lots of restaurants nearby. Very convenient, affordable price! It is not a classy hotel but it was good enough for the price you pay!

The place is nice but the rooms are relatively small. wifi is free but thats all about it. came in late tonight and check in was swift @ 3am. I really don't like the area. I have stayed in better parts of Makati before. The rooms are spartan for a moderate hotel. i won't be back.
