Saint Illians Inn: You Can Get Dizzy on this Staircase

The second staircase was a spiral staircase to all floors. I thought it was very artistic but would not be convenient if you were carrying luggage.

The Manila Peninsula: The Pen

Another picture of the upper lobby within the Peninsula hotel. In the evening they play from here very entertaining string and piano music.

The sound is beautiful and so relaxing after a busy day.

Centrally located in the business district of Manila, ample parking space, many nice stores, excellent bakery and a very good barber shop in the basement.

The service inside the lobby is attentive as I know from way back in 1975.

This year July 2005 I can recommend this hotel as I did when I was a resident in Makati

Shangrila Hotel, The Oakwood,...

Shangrila Hotel, The Oakwood, The Mandarin Hotel, The Manila Peninsula. Those are the five star hotels but for the economical traveler, you can City Gardens and the other one infront of Greenbelt...(hold on please,i'll check on the name)

Excellent relaxing ambiance and good hospitable service. Besides that, they also serve sumptious food in their own creative way. Mandarin serves mosly chinese stuff, the Shang a variety, and the Pen is good with pastries.

Manila Shangrila Hotel: Luxury Hotel of Makati Part (new pics)

This is Again A Review of Mankati Shangrila Hotel Manila albeit with newer pictures on a revisit in 2012. They now have LCD tv's in the rooms.

The Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is a World Renowned International hotel chain based in Hong Kong. It is the largest Asian-based deluxe hotel group in the region.The group started in 1971 with its first and flagship hotel in Singapore, and now has 49 deluxe hotels and resorts located in key Asian, Australian and Middle East cities with hotel room inventory of over 23,000. The hotel group also has a sister brand called Traders Hotel, established in 1989 to cater mostly to business travellers. In the philippines it has 3 Shangrila Hotels and 1 traders hotel. I stayed in two of the shangrila hotels called Shangrila Hotel Manila which is located in Ayala Avenue corner Makati Avenue.

Shangrila Manila has one of the best locations for a hotel in Manila and it has spacious and elegant rooms with tasteful decor and a superb bathroom with an extension phone and glass showers. But it gets terribly busy and you don't get your first choice of room type. they provide a great breakfast with a huge choice for the buffet and also still have wonderful service. Plus is is the most prestigous hotel address in the Philippines and is walking distance to the Upscale shopping Meccas of Glorietta and Greenbelt.

GIC Tourist Inn: Budget Bed and Breakfast

This is a 3 story B&B that's clean and very accomodating. I was also told that for a certain number of stay, you will be entitled to a free 12-hour stay. I am fuzzy about toilets so that's what I will discuss about first :) It's the usual hot water shower, curtains, tiled all around, and small soap. You'll find a sofa and table set, window or split airconditioning unit, TEMPUR-type pillows, a complimentary pitcher/glasses set filled with cold powder Tang-type orange juice, cotton blankets and in-room phone(local calls are free).

Breakfast service will depend on when you want it delivered t your room. Regular breakfast fare consist of: 2 sets per room: Fried hotdogs/fried tapa/ham slice, toasted bread, butter and coffee.

What is nice about this place is that you can ask the roomboys to buy stuff for you in the nearby local stores. Stuff like noodle soup cup, sanitary napkins, shampoo sachet, toothpaste, etc. Tipping is very appreciated. They can also wash your car for about PHP50 = US$1.

Rate for 12 hour stay is PHP1,190 = US$26. Check in time: from 8pm.

I prefer the room just below the spiral staircase since it has the biggest bathroom. Quirky :)

Very accomodating. Friendly staff.

PENINSULA HOTEL: Recommendable Hotel

This stay at Peninsula hotel was a comlimentary given by a relative. Personally it has an excellent location as the main shopping district is within walking distance. Hotel rooms at a five star hotel are about all the same, internet access, service is well performed and gracefully and etc. What we like and enjoyed best is the restaurant which we shall be downloading some photos how we enjoyed the food and the service at the restaurant. Their staff works over and above expectation and how we would love to return and stay a bit longer the next time around.

The service is excellent, staff are trained to be very attentive. Location is very centralized! Tipping the works even $5.00 per service is something we did not mind at all, as they deserve for the hard work for little pay.

Makati Palace Hotel: Great Place to stay

Ive stayed at Makati Palace both times i went to the Philippines. This is a nice hotel. Its not equivalent to the Peninsula or Shangri La, but for the price, you really cant complain. When you first arrive the doormen and security help with the luggage and assist you with whatever you need. The front desk staff are courteous and very helpful as well. The lobby is medium sized but has nice architecture. The first time i stayed here my room was pretty big, alot bigger than expected. I believe it was on the 27th floor. The Second it was about average size, but its still good enough. Some of the floors have been recently renovated. I think the first 9 floors have central AC now and the other rooms have individual AC. They both work the same so it didnt really matter to me. The rooms are nice and cleaned everyday. The pool is on the 28th floor. its a pretty nice pool and there is a cafe there too, so its a great place to chill. I like the location of the hotel. Its not right next to the malls but its a short taxi ride away. It costs around 60Php to get to greenbelt / glorietta and Rockwell Powerplant. Its on P burgos street which is a nightlife street. There are a few bars, a 24 hour restaurant, 24 hour internet cafe, a hookah cafe, laundry all on the street or less than a block away. Its also a short drive away from the fort. This Hotel has Safety deposit boxes, ive used them both times, its safe. There is also a Spa on one of the top floors, a KTV bar on the top level and a great japanese restaurant on the 2nd floor. I really have nothing bad to say about Makati Palace.

Mandarin Oriental: An Aged Beauty

I'm a fan of MO. Everything ran smoothly as my expectance, probably the same to you.
*Hollywood Twin beds in room
*East meets West
*Personalize greeting and answer from high level, after dropping back the in-room survey
*Gentle touch Interactive from staff
Yes, it's Mandarin Oriental.

For U from Wstern Countries:
U must visit "Tin Hua", the Chinese Restaurent. for its charming decoration and food. It's a shortcut to learn more about Orient.

Prince Plaza II: Hotel with Best Location in Makati

I chose this hotel because it is near Greenbelt in Makati. Now I've never stayed in Makati area before so I did some research online about hotels and shopping areas in Makati. Prince Plaza II offered reasonable prices and great location.

I stayed in this hotel with a friend on Aug 7-11 2009. the price online (www.asiatravel.com) was good $53/P2500 a night for a standard room, but they didn't have that available so we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite for P3550/night. Not to disappoint, the room was clean and had good furnishings including a queen size bed, stove, fridge, and cable TV with premium channels. The room even had 2 bathrooms! It was very spacious and had a good view (we were on the 19th floor).

My only gripes were that the bed was a bit hard and the wood trim on the furnishings are a little old. Not a big deal coz we were mostly out and about shopping in Greenbelt and Glorietta. Prince Plaza II is right around the corner (literally) from Greenbelt 5. The staff was very friendly and security is good.

Excellent location within shopping district

Somerset: Somerset Olympia Sericed Apt. Makati

One of the problems with accomodations in PI is it's either really cheap, or really expensive. One of the better places I found for the money is the Somerset Olympia. Maybe a bit more than you were looking pay for but security is good, good locations, lots of restuarants near by, about 2 blocks or less from the mall, good staff, rooms are clean and decent size and you get breakfast with the room and price. I've gone both ways in Makati before, really cheap (dirty, bad neighborhood and noisy) and really expensive (not worth the price). The Somerset seemed to be OK for the money and accommodations. Actually I was surprised at how good the stay was there. I think you'd be happy there. Oh and you are only about 2 blocks away from the MRT should you need transpo.
Should you end up there I would like to hear back to see how you liked it.
Have fun! and good luck
pertty good rate at this site, but I didn't shop around as you should, and I don't know when you are traveling.
https://www2.somerset.com/philippines/manila/somerset_olympia_makati.html

There are lots of different web sites that offer differing price ranges so shop around, not sure where you are from but you should be able to enter Somerset Olympia and get some responses to search. There are three Somersets in this area, I liked this one for location and price.
