“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed January 6, 2008

Had a lovely stay at the oxford from 24/12/07 to 02/01/08 had great company with my fiancee Angel llauderes i realy love you with all my heart can't wait till april when we marry. Opp's sorry the hoterl is in the red light district not my cup of tea but was ok. Staff in the hotel were all friendly, food was ok great room service would i stay there again yes but the only thing putting me off was the road noise could here it from room 2101 thats on the 21st floor. Apart from that great hotel plus great company.

  • Liked — Room was cosy but a little dated
  • Disliked — traffic noise from room 2101 on the 21st floor
  • Stayed December 2007, traveled as a couple

I recently stayed in the Oxford Suites Hotel, (not for the first time), which is situated slap bang in the middle of P. Burgos St, Makati, Manila. For those that don't know, this is the bar area - and, by extension, the "red-light" area.

This is not a cheap hotel, but it is clean and very centrally located for those who are enjoying the unique "culture" for which P. Burgos St is famous!

Rooms are large, clean (as mentioned) and the bathroom was good. Cable TV was excellent but the buffet breakfast I would only describe as adequate. Staff very helpful and friendly, although do be careful to check your bill when you check out. I found that I had been charged for items from the well-stocked room mini-bar which I had not consumed - unfortunately too late to do anything about it.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Ok, so it's situated in one of the seediest parts of Makati - P. Burgos - but that lends the place a bit of charm if you're into that kind of thing. Anyway, I'll cut to the chase. The room I was in - a junior suite - was excellent value. It was spacious, clean and had great views (I was on the 20th floor) of the rest of Makati. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was ok. Tip: Don't bother with the buying the internet cards. It was 300 pesos for an hour! Internet cafe just around the corner for a fraction of the price. There is a good Middle Eastern restaurant less than 5 mins away (Al Hussein). Not sure what the other rooms are like but the junior suite was really rather nice.

We stayed at the Oxford Suites in Makati for a week in June of '06. The rooms are large and well kept, and service is generally quite good. Beds and linen are clean and comfortable. However, visitors should be aware that the Oxford is located in the heart of Makati's red light district, and thus, gets a lot of traffic from the kind of people (workers and clients) from this scene. The Oxford is currently running specials which run about half their published rates, but even better rates can be found at a popular online agency. Also, save your money on the in-room internet; an internet cafe is available down the street at a fraction of the price. Make sure you try the cooconut juice and chicken stew vendors across the street too! (Don't worry, it's clean and safe). Overall, I would rate the Oxford as a pretty good stay, very good if you're looking for a VERY comfortable budget hotel and don't mind the neighborhood.

I did a few research by checking internet for reviews before deciding which hotel to stay at. I should say the reviews that i have read about this hotel, some said noisy, bad place to stay, not recommended but there are good reviews about this hotel too. By looking at the pictures, it looks nice to me for such a pricing. So i decided to go it a try, but to be frank, i am prepared for the worst. When i was there, the lobby looks presentable even though it was small. Me and my two other colleagues start wandering how would the room look like. When we first open the door, we are so surprise to see that the room are actually looking fantastic. The bed is comfortable and the decor is cosy. I had american breakfast in the morning, that is pretty alright. Even though it is within red light district, but for a lady like me, it is pretty safe to walk around. But not recommended for a lady to go into the pubs within that area. Also, i am staying on 17th floor, so it is not noisy at all. I had a wonderful stay in the hotel. I am so glad that i made the right choice. I will visit again next time soon.
