“Best location ... Very old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Stayed there for 5 nights in 2 bedrooms apartment. (last Feb sorry for being too late in reviewing)
The location is the best and the staff members are great and service is good too
 BUT the furniture is so old and need renovation, and it is over priced (maybe season time)
Breakfast was included and was good. Other meals were expensive.
Gloritta mall, SM Market and greenbelt are near by , less than 5min walk.

Very nice hotel. The negative thing I can say about a small selection of breakfasts, mostly Filipino, which is disgustingly salty. The staff is very nice and very well speaking in English, that I basically can say about most of the Philippine people, but they are a little too curious personality which is annoying a bit.

This hotel provides well designed spacious rooms and apartments for business and family travellers. It is centrally located in Glorietta mall in downtown Makati - close to thousands of shops and restaurants. The Hotel has great rooms and a very good pool and courtyard. The Gym is good and the service is entirely satisfactory. The Cafe on 6 does a pretty good breakfast and good room service, As a restaurant Cafe 6 is otherwise below par but there are literally hundreds of good restaurants within 10 minutes walk of the Ascott. This hotel does not match the opulence and grandeur of the Shangri-La or Peninsula but it is every bit as comfortable and on the whole better value for money.

Room Tip: The Studio rooms are spacious and very comfortable for 2 people.

Excellent location for business. Central location for shopping- multiple choice of malls at the doorstep. Many entertainment and dining options within easy walking distance. Also well located for the Airport. Efficient and helpful service. Good breakfast buffet. Reasonably priced for the standard of accommodation offered.

We have stayed in the 2 bedroom deluxe last July 27 to 31 @ Unit 1625 for a 5 day business trip. I stayed in this property before when it was still Oakwood back in 2005 when it was still considered one of the newer properties in Makati. Fast forward 8 years, and now under Ascott, its still OK but not the best anymore. The rooms we stayed was huge, but the living area seemed to be smaller compared to the other unit my colleague stayed in (Unit 1729).

Breakfast was something to look forward too as the selection is few but the taste was GREAT. They serve eggs benedict during breakfast (which i haven't experienced in Starwood properties where I usually stay). The bacon was the best part for me though ;) as well as the fresh sweet ripe mangoes.

The best part was the LOCATION. Very convenient as Ascott is directly in Glorietta mall. The next building is SM which is helpful if you need to buy something and you don't know where to start. Taxi stand is also just right in front of SM but did not experience getting one there as we had transport during our stay.

Rooms are the only downside as they are starting to show their age. I hope they do some renovation soon. Also, WIFI was a bit unreliable and you have to log in again to get connection which was something I find annoying, but the speed was generally acceptable ( i mean for PH standard).

Overall, it was a great stat and actually feel like coming back this time for leisure.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing Glorietta 5/ Intercon area. I got a room facing the old Rustan's building...

We spent four nights in Manila and, despite hesitating due to some critical reviews, decided on the Ascott Makati. I am very glad we did!. Although we were unable to get a 3 bedroom suite, and had to settle for two bedrooms and an extra bed, the suite was big and very comfortable for all of us.
The bedrooms are large, the living and dining room were large and confortable too. My only complaint would be that the WIFI only allowed two connections (so we had to pay for another two) and that it required us to login repeatedly.
The front desk was very helpful and helped us find out where to go and see a basketball game which we really enjoyed.
The location, close to the shopping malls, was very practical and if ever we wanted to go further away there is a taxi line just meters away from the front door.
We will return here next time we're in Manila.
