This hotel is right where you want to be! It's just across the street from the Greenbelt 1, and so convenient.

The hotel staff were friendlly and immediately helpful when we needed something like tissue or a newspaper.

Every morning there was a free breakfast delivered from a local restaurant. You could get eggs, bacon and toast, or cereal, or fresh fruit, etc.

The room was huge! There was a living/dining room, a small kitchen, and a separate bedroom with a good view of the greenbelt--very pretty!

Some items were a bit old in the room and the mirror was cracked. It's not a 5 star hotel, but it was clean, well serviced and had the best location of the 4 hotels I've stayed in while in Makati.

Unique Qualities: Pool on the top floor (didn't visit)

Restaurants are right across the street (Chili's, Pizza Hut, Cheesecake and Coffee, Pancake House, etc).

I saw 2 internet cafes within 1 min. of the hotel

The Greenbelt and Glorietta are right nextdoor (you have to walk through the greenbelt shopping area to get to the Glorietta mall)

A great Spa is across the street (aaah! about $12 for an hour massage and it's a VERY classy place)

Try asiahotels.com for a cheap internet rate.
We stayed in the 1-bedroom suite for $40 USD a night. If you wait until you get to the hotel to pay, it's $120/night!

Ah, I'll just list what facilities that have:
