“fantastic buffet!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights with a friend. The room included minor items that are sometimes crucial when traveling: converter, office supplies, etc. The bathroom was a good size, strong shower. You can tell that the place is a little worn/older but the amenities and service are still five star. The rate we got also included breakfast and it was amazing! Anything you could ever want: juicebar, pastries (the croissants are good), classic filippino breakfast, cheese, lox, asian, indian type foods, meat stations, etc.

This hotel is walking distance to Gloriettta (shops) / Landmark (shops) / Greenbelt (movies, shops) and the rest of the Makati restaurants. There are numerous and various types of restaurants/bars nearby. Safe to walk around at night.

Makati Shangri La is a Magnificent Hotel in the Heart of a Beautiful and Modern City. We arranged for their Private, Mercedes Limo, to Pick us up fro the Airport and Return us for our Departure.
Everything was top notch and worth every Peso. The room was excellent and the staff Professional and Polite. They have a wonderful Large Pool with Poolside Bar and Grill.
The Hotel is centrally located and walking distance from many attractions.

Stayed three nights during business trip. Wasn't particularly impressed. Not that there was anything wrong. For the brand and price you pay, you get the friendly service and quality room that you'd expect. It just feels like very stiff and rehearsed. People are friendly because they are paid to be, you don't feel the genuine warmth and friendliness.

There is a pretty decent gym with weights and cardio machines. There are trainers on hand if you need a spotter.

The food at the japanese restaurant was very good on the first night. The quality dropped a little on the second night when the restaurant was packed.

Quality of in-room dining was inconsistent. Somedays the breakfast serving was smaller than usual.

Location of hotel is good. Some major shopping malls/areas close by - Landmark, Green Belt and Glorietta.

Tip: You can get the popular 7D dried mango at Landmark supermarket situated at Basement level.

Fantastic stay over New Year. Pickup from the airport was a great experience, very efficient service. In room check in is a great touch. Tour organized by the travel desk was good. Fantastic museum just across the road and close proximity to a great Shopping Mall. Food and service in the Horizon Club were excellent. Security staff were very friendly and even let me pet the sniffer dogs.
All in all definitely a hotel to have on your list in Manilla.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a view. We had a fantastic view over the New Year celebrations and firework...

Stayed here on business for 3 nights. Excellent hotel start to finish. Pick up at airport was good and someone was there to meet me as soon as I got out of the car with an iPad and I was able to skip the check-in process completely. Didn't go to the bar or any restaurants on site as there are plenty of wonderful options in Makati - right outside the hotel is Greenbelt with tons of great places - People's Palace (Thai) and Chateau 1771 are highly recommended. Spa was fantastic, staff was great even if the prices are very expensive for the Philippines, but that's to be expected. Overall fantastic property and would definitely return if in Manila.

I've stayed at the Shangri-La in Manila a couple of times for business. It is in the most convenient location and staff are always at your service. I recommend this hotel for anyone who stays in Manila.

A long time favourite from the room accommodation to the Circles breakfast to the afternoon tea classical performances in the lobby

Good value, walking distance to city centre restaurants and shopping

A warm and welcoming hotel in the metro
