This was my first time staying at this property, though I frequently stay in other nearby hotels when in Makati. I had high expectations for this hotel, based on the photos displayed on the website and the reviews. I was a bit disappointed. I would like to note that it is in a great location, right on the corner of P. Burgos St. and Durban and that everything you could want/need (restaurants, clubs, bars, 7-11, etc.) is close at hand. The Filling Station restaurant, accessed via the hotel elevator on the 2nd floor is a consistent and reliable, though not inspired, choice and the Cubana Cafe on the first floor had live music every night. The photos on the website do not accurately depict the hotel. The room I had, though a corner unit with 2 sets of windows, was rather dark and drab. Walls are painted an odd, and somewhat unsettling shade of green, and the dark furniture contrasts poorly. It should be noted that there is NO in-room safe. The shower head had a mind of its own and sprayed water everywhere, resulting in a flooded floor every time I showered. Limited channel line-up and a very small flat screen TV. The cable/satellite was intermittent and I had to have hotel staff come to the room at least once during the 3 nights that I stayed there to reprogram the system. Though I did not use it, and in fact didn't even touch it because I have a full beard, the hotel staff insisted on charging me for the disposable razor provided. Annoying and I won't book again.
