The most important thing to remember when you book a hotel in Makati is that this is an entertainment district. That means it may be noisy at night.
The Oxford Suites is very well located for all the major attractions on offer in the area, there are bars and restaurants on the doorstep offering good value and reasonable quality food and beverage.
During the day the area is beset by young kids looking for a few peso, but better to buy some food and offer this. I guess no matter how much we dislike beggars as an individual you will not be able to stop it.
Rooms at the Oxford are comfortable, very clean and the staff generally very helpful. Reception staff for my check in were all called the same name 'Trainee'. As expected that meant they were all constantly referring to the senior member of staff and check in took a very......very....very long time. Oh and so did check out! However it was all done with a thousand smiles and a hundred 'so sorry'. Did it spoil the break? Not at all. Would I stay again? Definitely.More
