It's always a nice experience staying at Makati Prime Tower. It's conveniently located in the heart of Makati City, where the action is. It's just a few minutes away by cab from the city's shopping malls, cinema houses, restaurants and even hospitals. I first discovered about this place when a close friend recommended this place for a shower party. This is where we organized the memorable event around three years ago, and, the place was just perfect. There even even a suite, where the kitchen is quite nice and you can cook and prepare your food. Great for parties too!
It's got everything that you need at an affordable price.
nice and well run 60-room place to stay with helpful staff.

right across the street from greenbelt mall, posh establishment with first class restaurants and shopping. an affordable place to stay right beside makati's high-end district.
arnaiz ave. is along a public transportation (jeepney) route.
the service is regular...nothing special
the location is good...within walking distance to shopping malls
the room is big...pantry complete with kitchen utensils, private toilet/bath
i've tried to transfer to another room but there are roaches there too.
would not check-in that hotel ever again :0(
I don't know if I should put this on my off the beaten path list or hotel accomodations, but since it's a hotel, I'd rather place it here. Sometimes, when one gets too tired to go home and the traffic is horrific, it is best just to stay overnight...since you didn't plan it, you would choose a place that's clean, but is very, very affordable. It's a good thing to find this place.

stayed at the intercon makati last dec and couldn't be more please. the hotel lobby is very posh. the bar has san miguel; a little overpriced. the hotel is situated in a great location; only minutes from the train station and glorietta mall. the rooms are a little bland but spacious. i stayed in a jr suite which allowed club lounge access. that in itself almost paid for the room. there is free coffee and tea in the afternoon, a breakfast buffett in the morning and free cocktails/beers/snacks in the evening. all this as you enjoy the view of the city from the top floor. the staff of the hotel were very helpful and accomadating. great stay overall.
Mandarin Oriental is a business man's hotel as executives and expatriates from corporate offices in Buendia (Sen Gil Puyat) Ave., Paseo de Roxas, and Ayala Ave., stay here. More often than not, these expats stay for several weeks and maybe months.
Captain's Bar has interesting lounge acts - classic singers, comedy bar acts.
Book this place during Chinese New Year and they have feng shui advisors and dragon dances.
It does not have a spacious lobby commonly found in 5-star hotels.
I was surprised that I got a nice enough room in this hotel. Nothing fancy about the interior design, but it is clean and medium-sized - not too small and not that spacious, either. The bathroom was also clean and well-maintained.
Would recommend this particularly to those travelling on a budget, whether for business or leisure.
Low price and good enough rooms
Generally the Hotel is kinda 4 star type. Service are ok. The hotel enviroment are busy with lot people coming in & out here actually especially the locals for some particular reason.
The room are comfortably decorated with cool comfortable beds. The sheets are great. Rooms facilities are quite standard like air cond, water heaters, TV and internet access are avaiable. Most rooms are facing the city. Not a great sight though and can be pretty nosy in the early mornings. Just right infront of the hotel are a public stop for you to move around. Other than that the hotel it's alright. I would stay there again if I ever go Makati again.
I've had relatives stay at Gilarmi before. I slept over once when my sister was booked there. The best feature would be accessibility. It's just across the Glorietta Mall in Makati, a lot of food and shopping choices. The place is rather old (old charm), but it will do if you are looking for a good enough place to rest.
Walking distance from Glorietta and Greenbelt, as well as MRT.
Finding a good 3 star hotel in Makati can be quite a pain. With a Php 2000 bdget per night, I have tried a few and so far this one is the most decent with regards to room cleanliness and staff service.
Please be careful with the toiletry base in the bathroom though. The glass base was placed just above the basin and I was very nervous whenever I used it. Very unsafe. I reported it to the front desk the last time I checked in but I don't know if they did something about it now. Better be forewarned than sorry.

Before I got married, I liked the Mandarin for its good food and elegant surroundings. Aside from that, the company I was working for previously was associated with one of the services in this hotel. So I was quite familiar with the restaurants and other offerings here except for the rooms.
My husband and I decided to book a suite there for our wedding night. I had the impression that establishments which have titles such as best business hotel, etc. were at least efficient in service as they have to keep up with the crazy schedule and requirements of business people. Was so disappointed, though.
Check-in time, just like in most hotels around the globe, was at 2:00 pm. Other hotels even make the effort of letting you in your room a couple of hours before the check-in time, especially if you have booked a suite and they know you are celebrating a special day. Well, it was not so at the Mandarin. Our suite was not ready until past 4:00 pm. I still had to have my makeup and hairstyle done and the wedding was at 7:00 pm! The stylists were already waiting for about an hour!
I was a bride who was sitting pretty till the big day because all my wedding suppliers, from the caterer to the couturier, did their jobs well and on time. I just couldn't believe that the glitch would come from an established hotel like Mandarin.
Sure, they allowed us to check out at past 4:00 pm the next day. But I think they should have even given us a free extra night accommodation.
Of course, the room was great. I loved the clean and luxurious bathroom. But would I recommend this to anyone? There are other hotels with much better service in the Makati area. Try the Shangri-La, the Peninsula or New World Renaissance.
Located in Makati, OakWood is a serviced apartment. But you probably don't know that you can actually stay there for a day . For almost the same rate as a de luxe room of a 4 star hotel, you get a 1 bedroom suite (there are others) fully furnished. Please refer to my manila pages under Oakwood Premier Ayala Center.
It has several things I like including a swimming pool that doesn't get too much sun. Manila is a tropical country and therefore tends to be really hot during the months of late feb to mid may.
The Pen as it is commonly known is situated right at the corner of Ayala (the main road in Makati City) and Makati Avenue. Just from the driveway, you'd feel the grandeur that the hotel is accustomed to. It is very close to the business district so it is perfect for the travellers who are here to do business. Rooms are huge and clean.
What I do remember is the hotel's lobby. This is the typical 5 star hotel with a huge lobby where you normally don't hear anybody talk yet you see them socialize anyway. We love the half gallon ice cream served in a huge bowl complete with fruits, nuts and cream.
It's so nice to lounge about in this place especially when you're there to just while away the time while music plays in the background.
The room is ok. the toilet and bath were just the right size, not so fancy. I just feel that the TV was a little too close to the bed that it reminds me of a motel. Or was it the angle at which it was placed in relation to the bed? anyhow, they're having the hotel renovated now so I hope they consider that.
Has a pool, several restaurants, a bar, spa, great view, business center, star bucks is at walking distance (just across actually), and a few meters away from some of the best malls in the Philippines. I love the breakfast buffet at Nielsen's.
A real 5 star hotel, The Shang (as it is more popularly called) is right at the heart of the Makati Central Business district. Here you'll find that everything is just a stone's throw away. The Islands cafe has a buffet that will make your mouth water. We had a chance to stay at the junior suite and man it really is something. it has a magnificent view of the makati skyline plus you'll feel like a royalty with all that interior. My daughter didn't want to leave the place.
The other rooms are very good too. It practically has everything you'd want in a hotel. This hotel is a favorite of celebrities from here and around the world.
It's huge but can be cozy when you go to restaurants.
