“Pleasure to stay at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2011

Nice small INN..If you are looking for a large hotel, this isnt it...Not exactly in the heart of Makati business district, but located on a side street close to Cinema square mall and Walter Mart Mall, 2 really old and smaller malls, but both malls are a great place to walk to in order to get something to eat.....Check in was simple, booked online....Rooms were simple, adequate to be in....air condition was available in the room, and a 7-11 was a block away in order to buy water and small stuff...If your room is on the 3rd floor, there are no elevators so be sure to where your climbing shoes. The stairs are quite simple to climb...They also have a property one block away, which can be seen once you step outside...
People at the INN were nice, especially Marie, she was nice to talk to, and pleasant to deal with...She seems to have been there awhile...
I needed a taxi the day i was leaving and they were more than helpful in getting me one which i greatly appreciated...Under $3 to get to Mall of Asia by taxi, i believe one of the biggest malls in all of asia. And about maybe 2$ to get to downtown makati and the greenbelt area where hardrock cafe and TGIFridays are located...Most of the tourists seem to be in the makati area....

Dear Tkt2travel,

Many thanks for your "impartial" but highly favorable review! Everything you said is a very objective and fair assessment of our little inn. I only wish other people would be as realistic as you in your expectations for the excellent value of your money spent on staying with us.

Also you mention our Front Desk Rep-- Marie. Yes she indeed has been with us since the beginning and she was elated that a guest took the time to mention her in an actual review.

I hope you got your permanent 20% discount card that has no expiry for returning guests. Please do come stay with us again soon and experience the new renovations we are currently undertaking to further improve guest comfort.

Cheers and many, many thanks again!

The place to stay if one is looking for reasonable rates & excellent service in the Makati area. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Located in quiet neighborhood & near commercial areas. Definitely recommended!

Dear Maorag44,

Thank you very much for your praise! We recently renovated all guest rooms and are even now increasing the "value for money" which you mention. All rooms now have personal refs at no additional charge. While this may seem a standard amenity and one not to brag about, please know that our room rates are the lowest in Makati, so every bit of extra amenity is truly a cut in our net profit because these do cost money.

We have heard suggestions about giving free toiletries and we are glad to tell you that we are now including free toothpaste, shampoo and of course the free bath soap. For each day of stay we replenish these items at no cost.

Then too, we now give welcome drinks to guests-- you may even choose what you want for your welcome drink-- including beer too if this is what you prefer. We do not include iced coffee products like our Mocca Frappe for example, but everything else can be chosen as your free welcome drink-- even the 1 liter bottle of Alkaline water. Yes Alkaline water. We sell only healthy water for you.

New linen, fresh paint in all rooms and halls, bathroom tile upgraded, and minute other details increased like hair dryers to be installed this coming April in all rooms without increasing our prices. In fact -- you may have received your Loyalty Discount Card entitling you to 20% discount on all room rates. This card is free to departing customers and has no expiry.

Hope to see you again soon!

Ps. If you did not receive your discount card as we just launched it first week of March, please remind us upon your next check in and we will gladly give you the discounted rate on your next stay and of course be sure to hand you your discount card for subsequent stays. Cheers!!
