We stayed at the Somerset Olympia in Dec 07 for a week. The facilities here were ok and the staff was generally friendly. Our unit was not facing the Makati Avenue, hence it was quiet.
The location was convenient as the Glorientta Malls were only a 10 to 15 minutes walk away, and there you can find all varieties of food, including the excellent Crispy Patta! The hotel is well-located in that places like SM Mall of Asia, Intramuros and Megamall are all only a short taxi ride away.
Security in the hotel is good and gave us a good peace of mind. Breakfast is adequate and you have it at 2 different locations.
My major complaint about the place is on the blling upon checkout. I booked online in USD under the Citibank World Privelege discount. On check-out, they insisted on converting USD to PHP at a rate which is way above the normal exchange rate. In fact, the hotel had 2 exchange rates, one for over the counter cash exchange and another (a higher one) for payment of hotel bills! Furthermore, they refused to accept cash payment in USD. Reluctantly, I had to settle my bills in PHP at the higher conversion rate. My advise now to others is to book in the local currency if possible to avoid this sort of unfair practice by certain hotels.
