“good for long stay”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We stayed at deluxe room with two bedrooms. It was spacious but it seems to be combined with two separate hotel rooms and inconvenient to human traffic flow. One hair drier with two distant bathroom. It was non smoking floor but a little bit smelly. The most weird thing is no free wi-fi. Why not to be inclusive at this smart mobile generation?
The kitchen utensils was enought to live there for long time and there also were a washing machine and a clothes dry machine. The swimming pool was OK and a hot water jacuzzi there.
The best thing is huge glorietta malls beneath and next to the hotel. We could buy anything and eat any kinds of food.

We stayed here in one of the 2 bedroom units and were very pleased with the place. The transfer from the airport was a little bit of a shambles but we got there in the end no worse for wear.

The room was spacious and very clean with a great view of the city. The pool was clean and the cocktails flowed easily.

The location of this place is great with many shopping malls right on your doorstep. We even managed to get McDonalds delivered! I probably wouldn't say this is 5star but it's pretty close.

We have teams staying her long term who I went to visit. For long term the rooms are good and the location is fabulous with everything close by.
The small stuff doesn't seem to work which if you are only there for a few days is frustrating. Card keys don't work most of the time, the TV losses signal often but I think that seems to be how you use the remote, there is no info about room service or the like in the rooms, the phones aren't as simple as pick up and dial. shower pressure low and getting the switch between bath and shower is a bit of a struggle. They offer adapter plugs and after 4 requests they still hadn't provided. They eventually directed me to the hardware shop just down the road.
One restaurant in house which doesn't open till 6am with no room service before that. They will make a bag breakfast of a bad sandwich & piece of fruit to go. We left the hotel at 6am each day because we traveled to the office and the traffic can be a nightmare. Staff friendly but not really helpful, the 5 doorman and security staff watched me struggle with my luggage. The staff at reception who seem to stand around (security maybe) dont offer to help either.
At the pool you have to go to them and order a drink or lunch - not like other hotels in asia where service is interested and attentive.
No info about what to do in town and when I asked for a info & a map they printed a street map in black and white off the internet which had not landmarks etc
I think this hotel is really on suited for people staying longer term but it is VERY expensive and there are much better options all around. Dont expect 5 star service

Coming to Manila for work, Ascot is a perfect long stay residence... Right in the heart of the city has the most happening hangout all around... The staff is friendly and always willing to help... The taxi services are good and everyone recognizes the hotel... Starbucks, cafe Havana, Hard rock, etc all are a walking distance...
Also has easy access to grocery stores and other merchandise

Overall a good experience for leisure and business...

Great location and friendly staff, the breakfast provides a good range of options which change most days. The pool is a nice spot for for a bit of R & R. Also Bo's cafe across the road is ok for coffee 24/7

Without a doubt, this is one of the best locations. Easy access to the most popular malls in Makati the area is well secured. In addition to public security, the area has their own security throughout the day and one can feel safe to walk out any time without any fear. Large rooms and ample space. The Bath rooms are bit older but kept clean and tidy. The guest supplies are great. Without a doubt we will stay in this hotel again and recommend to others.
