    an average hotel in Makati city

    by

    The room & bathroom

    Spacious room with comfortable king size bed-clean, three pillows and firm mattress. Reasonable sized bathroom with full-sized bath tub. Hot water was only warm & shower wasn't that strong. Rubber mat was slippery and slimy-I didn't use it! Soap and shampoo provided.

    Came with cable tv, old style cupboard space, two comfortable armchairs-upholstery was in fabric & clean, minibar, small work desk, coffee & tea making facilities (except that there was only 1 sachet of coffee, 1 tea-bag, 1 creamer & 1 sachet of sugar-which the housekeeping did not bother to top up!). The safe in my room did not work.

    Expensive Internet
    There is wireless internet at a very high price-you purchase cards at the reception. I paid 480 pesons for 4 hours (valid for 36 hours from start time). However, the internet speed was good.
    (If you walk out of the hotel, turn right onto Magulay street & left onto Chino Roches Avenue (towards the large McDonalds), you will come to a place where you pay only 20 pesos for 1 hour for Games on the internet. For some reason, this place is also a notary public - I didn't check it out-but it has a big "Yahoo" sign on the window.)

    Noisy air-conditioning & an even noisier fridge
    There was an adjustable air-condition system with came with and on-off button & temperature control, which was rather noisy so mostly I turned it off at night. The fridge had the tendency to come alive at certain times, then turn itself off into some kind of vibrating mode, and then kick to live again! It was quite disconcerting.

    Unique Quality: Nothing to shout about or to write home about but....
    it is in a good location if you want to be in Makati district. I didn't have a sense of where it was until my second night at the hotel, when the taxi took this route.
    If you are at the entrance of the hotel, facing outwards onto the street, turn left and after a few hundred meters, you'll get to Ayala Avenue.
    Turn right onto Ayala Avenue & you'll come to RBC on your left and a number of highrise office towers replete with Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf outlets, ubiquitous Starbucks outlets and numerous other fast-food joints. BDO & Mercury Drugstores are also ever present here.

    It cost me 50 pesos (slightly over US$1) using a metered taxi to get to the famous Ayala Center for shopping and dining. Using an unmetered taxi (there was a meter but the driver refused to turn it on), it cost me 100 pesos (slightly over US$2).

    The Room rate comes with Breakfast: You have a choice of American or Filipino. Both come with 2 eggs, Glass of iced water and Coffee or tea. The Filipino breakfast has a choice of fried rice or plain rice and some stewed beef or other meat. The Coffee was delicious, and other fare was nothing to write home about.

    Directions: The taxi driver may not always know this place-it is quite close to Kings Court Building, Chino Roches Avenue.

    I've seen an internet rate of $35 or P1,800 inclusive of breakfast. To book a room, I suggest booking through www.asiatravel.com.

    Unique Quality: It's a first class hotel in Makati although you need to take a short cab ride to hit the malls or dining places. The hotel is in a quiet street behind one of Makati's busiest streets, Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. The price is very reasonable for the quality of rooms and the amenities.
