Have bought my voucher thru Ensogo for only P588, inclusive of overnight stay in Double Room with their cozy package (includes 12hr A/C, 24 Cable TV and Wifi, Towel and Toiletries) and it was ALL WORTH IT. I think regular price of this whole package is worth P1008.00, so i merely saved P420.00 and that's a big smile for me. :)
Reservation - Check In - Check Out :
After buying the voucher at Ensogo, I didnt book immediately as I and my BF got to decide first when to use it. After 2 months (it is valid from 3 months upon purchase), we have decided to send their reservation office an email and it just took as less than 30 minutes to get their reply and confirmation to our date reservation. Checking in got less than 10 minutes and it was really convenient. Lobby staffs are courageous and approachable. Checking out took less than 5 minutes, we just handed the E-card key and the TV remote to the lobby staff and viola! were officially checked out. - no questions, no room inspections and no guest waiting inconveniently before leaving (just like other hotel did). :))
Location - nice and wise. Located just behind Oxford Suites and St. Giles Hotel, 2 streets away from busy street of makati ave which make it not too congested and noisy even outside the Hotel, which gives you a peaceful sleep especially at dawn.
Food - We actually didn't able to savor their food in the hotel as we are gone a few hours in the nearby mall (glorieta) for a cine date and thus have eaten our dinner there before heading back to the hotel. Though having said that, you wont be able to experience difficulty in finding a good dining experience as the location itself is full of different restaurants to choose from and present just along makati avenue including coffee shops, fine dining of all races, fast food restos, bars, videoke's, supermarket, convenience stores,everything... even a simple Tapsilogan / Carinderia is just a few walks away from the hotel.
Room - Our room is located at 3rd floor. As I noticed, the whole floor itself was very peaceful and quiet as if other rooms have no visitors in it (but is really has, haha! I knew it as I mind to asked one of their staff just because of my curiosity). For our whole stay we did not experience ANY disturbance, even a simple noise coming from other rooms or outside the hotel, nothing. :) Room space is enough, presentable, well lighted, very modern. I like most was the bed- very comfortable especially the warm and cozy feeling the comforter have given even if our A/C was at its coldest temperature point. :)
Bathroom and everything in it - Love it. The way it was simply designed and structured. It was modern. No tub though, have hair blower. Water pressure was great. Very Clean and smelled really nice.
What I really love in this hotel is its "just buy what you need" policy. Their standard room rate is P588 for an overnight stay- and you yourself can control your add-on purchases of everything you need within a very affordable rate. A/C for 12 hours is just P200, P350 for 24hours, 24Hour TV for P130. Toiletries and Towel for P90, wifi for i think P200. For my personal view, this is really a true budget hotel because you can actually control your expenses. If we go back there again with a regular rate, we would just probably be getting the 24hour Cable TV access for some entertainment and the 12 hour A/C that you can manage to use for your 24 hour stay (yes you can! :) ofcourse with the help of their ceiling fan) No need for wifi, simply because we have lots of things to spend our time other than net surfing and the toiletries and towel can be brought from home.
I will definitely go back to this Hotel again, and will surely recommend this to other backpacking friends and travelers.
