Hotel Celeste.: Very cosy hotel in a perfect locaton.
Hotel Celeste is located in Makati and is a perfect choice for those looking for a good hotel without breaking the bank with one of the very expensive 5 star hotels. It´s a really nice hotel kept in old fashioned style with big furniture and rooms that has a bit of a colonial touch to it. They have both regular rooms and suites and both types of rooms are realy fine in my opinion. Hotel Celeste is located right across the road from Greenbelt and that gives it the perfect location in Manla in my opinion. When i was there the staff was very helpful and polite and i can only recomend this hotel.
Veryt nice and perfectly located.

Excellent woodwork in hotel, good food
This is a convenient location between Quezon City and Makati, and so is perfect for "balikbayans"/Filipino overseas workers who have relatives at both sides of the long Edsa Avenue. But the most enduring thing you will remember with this hotel is the woodwork, specially at the dining area which offers excellent Filipino dishes (including lunch and dinner buffets). The effort in bringing such aesthetic woodwork together is great. We got a unit which had 2 floors, the only problem being that the stairs are somewaht small and too steep inside. Not really good for the disabled. But the hotel has very good security and you can park your car inside the complex. The price is also very reasonable compared to the other high rise luxury hotels.
Close to shopping complexes.

Durban Inn: Decent bargain in a clean facility
The Durban Inn has become my "home" in Manila, and I'm not alone. The place is almost always full and that's because it's got a low price point and a very clean environment. The daily sheet and towel and disinfecting routine guarantees there's nothing in the way of bugs or pests that are so prevalent.
It's at the edge of the business area of Makati, so very convenient for my needs and it's only a short 50 peso cab ride to the shopping centers of Greenbelt/Glorietta and about 120 peso half hour trip to the airport.
Overall, a very solid choice, but book in advance!
Super clean and the nice price.

Citadel Inn Makati: Rude and irresponsible
AVOID THIS DUMP!
I had trouble with my reservation with Citadel due to a breakdown in communication between them and the website discounter I use. The reception staff had no interest in solving the problem and foisted me off to a house phone where I spent a painful hour working out a too-expensive solution with the reservation agent located somewhere in the bowels of the place.
When I finally got the reservation squared away, I had to wait several minutes for the ancient, slow elevators to make their way to the lobby. The bell staff couldn’t be bothered to even offer to help with my bag and when I got to my room, I was incredibly disappointed. The lobby was beautiful. The room was underwhelming. There was one ragged towel and a tiny TV and to top it off, this idiocy: the labels on the hot and cold water in the shower were reversed… and the hot never really got above a tepid warm
Notably poor service ethic and overall uncaring attitude

Oxford Suites Makati: Seen better days
I stayed at the Oxford Suites twice. The first time, I found the staff warm, the room congenial and the price fair. They offer a not-too-bad breakfast with the room fare. It was a pretty good value.
The second time, however, something happened. The staff seemed to stop caring. New management? And this was not my own experience. A good friend who always stayed there finally got fed up with the deteriorating service and a business colleague has now decided to book visiting clients in Makati Palace. Most recently, a friend said that construction noise disturbed his sleep in the early morning.
To top it off, Oxford raised their rates significantly. Surely, they are skating on an old reputation.

The Contemporary Hotel: Manila's Best Deal
Nice cozy hotel with clean rooms and complete amenities such as a swimming pool, function/meeting rooms, laundry and dry-cleaning services, FREE local calls, safety deposit boxes, Lobby bistro and poolside bar, lobby shop, a beauty salon and spa, and even a first-rate dental clinic. And of course, 24-hour security.
Room rates are probably the lowest available for this type of hotel. And the rate is the same for single and double-occupancy! Breakfast included. Food is good and reasonably-priced. Great for the budget-hunters who still want quality amenities and service. A shoo-in consideration for businessmen, students, and backpackers. And tourists and balikbayans, of course. Hotel staff very courteous and efficient.

Best Western's LaCorona Hotel: Boutique hotel in old Manila
Manila has a dizzying array of places to stay at for the visitor from B&Bs or Pensionne as they are called in the Philippines, to motels, standard hotels that run up the scale from the basic to the very luxurious rated 5 stars. And like elsewhere, standard can vary widely of course even within each class. But one thing I can say and this from my own experience is that service especially personal touches extended by management overall is of high quality among most Philippine hotels. To give an example, breakfasts provided by hotels of all kinds are simply astonishingly enormous. And they're given free buffet style included in one's room stay. Nowhere else in the world would a visitor ever see/experience morning dining as festive and generous as this! Tho this assessment may sound patronizing and biased because of my background having been born and spent early years of my life in that country, but I'm at the same time a fairly well travelled person to many different countries which sort of equipped me with a certain knowledge and discernment about comparative situations.
The city of Manila has boomed and expanded sadly not in economic progress nor leap in standard of living but in latitude into such unimaginable limitless boundaries. Progress in terms of modernity is well exhibited in the posh and gleaming Miami-like metropolis of Makati which clearly has now become the "in" spot equated to modern living, finance center, entertainment, shopping and the place to hang around and stay. And as well the resulting high prices of everything here is understood to be part of the status. So, as far as accommodation goes, Makati, tho conveniently close to both the international NAIA (Ninoy Aquino Int'l Airport) and the domestic airports, tend to be on the expensive side.
As far as real charm, native interest and that certain adventurousness real travellers go out of the way looking for, Old Manila to me is still a better draw. But be warned this area tho hemmed-in by all the historic sights of this much-devastated, much-maligned and impoverished city which very much reminds one of Calcutta in all her poverty, neglect and raggedness, can seem very overwhelming certainly after awhile. But if the visitor's true interest as befits his/her ideal travels always looking for the gritty soulful down to earth authenticity, then Old Manila is a giver of raw haunting sad but rich-in-fighting-spirit offerings.
In Old Manila therefore I chose to stay around at in September 2010 when I went home to visit ancestral family after a long absence. I found the boutique hotel La Corona, of the Best Western hotel chain right in the Ermita district where so many little hotels can be found, an area rather of convenient proximity to the main sights of Luneta Park, the bay walk of Roxas Boulevard, the presidential palace of Malacanan, city hall, selective traditional museums and also a short jeepney ride away the veritable Chinatown and the bustling folk-art bargain shopping district of Quiapo.
La Corona is a medium-size recently renovated hotel of about two dozen rooms of varying sizes and comfort. I stayed in a single suite with a huge circular bed. All rooms are well maintained and very clean with all the modern amenities to them: small refrigerator well stacked with essentials, air-conditioning and hot water definitely, free tea and coffee maker, bathrobe, tv and piped-in music, high-speed internet service, daily complimentary bottled water, airport shuttle (w/ surcharge) among many others and a free breakfast fit for a wedding banquet! It was a well worth find and most comfortable stay.

New World Renaissance Hotel: Simple Pleasures
Not a lavish hotel but most of what you need are either available or accessible. New World is right at the heart of the Makati Commercial Business District (or plainly Makati Commercial) and is a favorite among business tourists. It is just right beside one of the best malls in the country, Greenbelt, and is walking distance to the Ayala Museum and 3 other malls: Landmark, Glorietta, ShoeMart (aka SM). There are numerous restaurants around of different types and for different budgets.

VIP Suite Hotel: Close to Manila airport and Mall of Asia
We want to be close to the airport of Manila, because we have our flight early in the morning. The location of this hotel is very convenient there are shops around and the biggest shopping mall of Manila, Mall of Asia is just 15 minutes away. After coming back from Tagaytay by bus where Provincial bus terminal is also in the same area we took a taxi from bus terminal which was a very short ride to this hotel. Pasay is very close to Manila airport a convenient place to stay if you have an early flight
The hotel lies in Evangelista street in Pasay don't be confused especially taking taxi always mentioned to taxi driver Evangelista street Pasay because there is also Evangelista street in Quiapo. This hotel is affordable and for the price I admire the cleanliness of the place. When we arrived the hotel burgher was immediately came to help our luggage. The hotel reception is upstair when we enter at the front door we thought we were in the hotel reception but is was not. The hotel has also a massage salon and that is downstair. Check-in is upstair they have only staircase there is no elevator that is why there were always young boys around to help carry the suitcase.
While taking step upstairs I was admiring on interior of the hotel this was very fancy. I can follow myself to a huge mirror on the hall way, so neat and clean some of materials are made from marble such as the table infront of hotel lobby. When we enter I was impressed!. The room was spacious which has attractive interior, a wooden floor very nice furniture with side table and a round mirror above, and the tv hang next to it. Mini bar is present in room, and a coffee maker. The bathroom is absolutely well worth the price the same rating of the room, very,very clean. The sink is made by marble with special faucet, during our stay in Manila this is the best place we ever had. The hall way between the rooms are so nice and well decorated
The surrounding outside the hotel is not to compare to any other places in Manila. Pasay has nightlife but in the street where the hotel is located there were not too many pubs. Here is only good to have a night rest especially if you have an early flight. Next door there is a mini stop supermarket which is open 24 hour. For the price of 2500 peso a night we have free wifi and also breakfast included this is woth of the price. We are not taking the breakfast we will be at the airport very early, the breakfast serve downstair next to the massage salon and they start serve breakfast at 7 am. Higly recommended place to stay near the airport
The hotel is super clean, especially the bathroom

Great Eastern Hotel: Terrible Makati Hotel
Nothing GREAT about this hotel. In fact, quite the opposite is true. The staff is rude and needs to be taught the basics of customer service. I booked a business associate here for two days and everything from check in to check out was horrible. The aggravation we experienced here isn't even worth the $30/night that I paid. That price seems inexpensive but when service is terrible, that is way too much more than what I'd want to spend.
Anyone will be better off staying at any other hotel in the Makati Ave. area where the staff is more pleasant and responsive.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE if you don't like rude front office and restaurant waitstaff.

Jupiter Suites: Close to everything very central location
This hotel is closed to everything, I really made a good choice this time. There are dozen of hotels in Makati, is hard to choice one. I have made all my bookings for accommodation during our trip in Philippines, this one I booked a few month before our trip. I normally book different hotel in Makati and just few weeks before our trip I cancel the other one and change to this hotel. I saw they were on discounted price.
However, we're more central to this place and the biggest shopping mall Greenbelt is just a 10-15 minutes away. This affordable hotel is just across the street of P.Burgos where the nightlife in Makati
Next door there are plenty of restaurants and the Greenbelt shopping mall is nearby. The hotel is located between Sen.Gil Puyat Avenue a very busy street. A very convenient place to stay and everything you need is just downstairs. KFC, MacDO, and so many more
The hotel entrance is quiet small but is okay, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Once we get off the taxi the hotel burgher meet us and took care of our luggage. There was another guy who help us for check-in, very accommodating person. Our room is on the fourth floor and the elevator goes to third floor only. The rest we carry our luggage through a staircase
When we get into our room my first impression is a WOW! what a huge room unbelievable. Very satisfied with our spacious room and for the price was more than worth it. We have a big double bed, modern television furniture the interior is pretty good combination with light color wall. Free wifi and a fridge, somehow the bathroom is not a wow as the room itself but is spacious. We have a little balcony facing to the busy street, even though we staying in the busiest street but we hardly hear noise from outside
Exterior photo of the hotel it doesn't seem big it looked small. But the size of rooms are huge! Hotel staff were very helpful, I asked an information of the timetable bus bound to Northern Luzon he made some phone calls for me. They have 24 hours security and receptionist. There were no breakfast include in the price, but next door there are many restaurants cafes , KFC, MACDO which open 24 hours.
This hotel is highly recommended for travelers who want to stay near the nightlife area of Makati. Walking outside the hotel at night we feel very at ease, never worried of being hold up, Makati is the safest area in Manila. Is a three star hotel which has an affordable price, the very spacious room were so amazing! this is the biggest room we ever had in the Philippines.
Makati is just a short ride by taxi from international airport, we bought a coupon taxi outside the arrival which is 400 peso only. The ride was about 20-30 minutes depending on traffic
The very large room was incredibly nice very airy
The interior of the room was excellent
The balcony facing to the main road where we can see everything

the town house hostel manila: why many people stay here
drunk staff and uneducated staff and fatty sleepy man are working here ,all staff here are not at all trained ,but for me this 3 are very memorable person.room starts from 300peso this hotel (without dormitory ),its only 6dollar .but I thought even pig live better room than us ,actually dog house in my country in my house is far more clean than this room.
and you must know u can not go to toilet in night time if you stay one of the 2 house of the hostel .because you must walk about one minute to other house to do toilet and shower,because one of the house of them do not have water supply.in that room some single room and dormitory are,dormitory is only 4dollar,but thinking about no water supply and price of the country ,its veryvvery expensive.
thinkin about the staff of the hostel and owner who do not carte about the management of the hostel ,I can say u had better stay at nadividad pension or malate pension in malate or some unfamous hotels with aircorn from 700peso cleaner fan room from 400 peso in malate ermita area ,or christine guest house (look my page )in laspinas city with good manager and cheaper price almost near of airport .or if u can pay more ,kabayan hotel in pasay are also nice choice,this is star class hotel not hostel or piggy house unlike townhouse hotel .but they have also dormitory room from 400peso including breakfast .
I still wonder why many person choose the hostel only because its cheap .if u like cheap ,its also nice idea to slepp in luneta park.its free ,its nice .
and ....townhousehostel boast about airport convinient ,but of course u can not walk to airport from the hostel and kabayan hotel and christine guesthouse also just 20 minutes from airport by car ,and even ermita and malate ustay ,its only 25minutes or like that and taxi costs very cheap in manila .
and food of the hostel also not cheap at all and u must walk 5minutes to restaurant if u want to eat standard food .

icon hotel north edsa: poor health, safety &customer assistance standards
Many points of concerns: I audited the room and services. The room comes with one key card only for two people ,the lift works on the keycard that means the person in the room is left with no power. In room there is no drinking glass or to wash your teeth, no kettle or complimantary coffee. There is no welcome pack with information about the room and services or how to operate the safe.
I had to call to get the safe repaired and to get instruction to work it. The door peephole was almost falling out.Major concern; pull the bed you will find bare conducting circuit board and power supply to the mains going under bed can cause electrocution or fire. Other defects included Broken fixture in the room obvious patch up jobs, peeling ceiling water damage. They advertise free wifi in rooms it doesn't work or drops out after connecting. You will have to go down to the lobby to connect.the showerhead above is not adjustable, not sure what the deal is with their bathroom poor design so it floods . Installed is a flimsy plastic divider so it sticks to you. Tv is too small it has no menu to see what program and times are showing. Remote control is tied to the back of the bed unfortunately to read on-screen details you have to pull the remote to stretching point even then it's still behind you.the bed is two single matress put together they slide apart at night if you move too much. The bed sheet is undersized by morning bedsheets are on the floor.
Return calls from service desk go unreturned, my bedroom wasn't done until 6PM that was after I had called and finally gone to the lobby to tell them to get it done now. Had to call several times for toilet paper and for soap and toothbrush.
Complaint process is stonewalled, can't speak to a manager. Asking to leave early due to complaints, you won't get the unused credit of your stay refunded they will pocket one days pay. They give empty apologies and don't even try to give anything to mend bridges with their customers.
Buffet breakfast isn't one, it's basic choice of 5 hot food ,coffee ,juice ,toast ,butter swimming in water. I got complimentary cracked cup (health hazard).some tables are really coffee tables so you have to hunch down to eat breakfast.
Nights are noisy same as day due to traffic and constant car horns.
service is slow, lift is pot luck stopping to your floor. take a seat could be waiting a while.
I've been to a lot of hotels, it's the first time I asked to leave early.
The only thing it has going for it is location to nearest sm mall of Asia 5 min away by foot.
