Makati is one of the famous cities in Metro Manila. It is widely known for its Skyscrapers and a variety of shopping malls.
Introducing one of the recommended 3.5-star hotels “V. I. P. Suite” for your staycation in Makati.
V.I.P. Suite｜Feature Reference
V.I.P. Suite is suitable for travelers going to Manila specifically in Makati. It has a total of 26 rooms and dormitory style rooms with 10 beds.
It offers elegance and comfort in one ad it is quite impressive how this hotel managed to provide a grand stairway minus the elevator.
The hotel is not surrounded with tourist spots though you can still enjoy going to your preferred destinations here in Makati in just one ride.
Access from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)
It’s about 3.5 kilometers away from the airport or 16 – 20 minutes by car/taxi/grab service.
24-hour airport shuttle service is available but make sure to contact the hotel prior to the check-in date.
The room has 1 queen size bed and 4 pillows, a desk at the corner, cabinet, and a not-so-spacious balcony covered with fitted (immovable) curtains.
A not-so-wide balcony space but still good enough to witness the view outside.
Impressive couch/sofa good for relaxing while watching movies on the flat-screen.
This is the hotel’s restaurant that is usually open only in the morning. Not so spacious but obviously well-maintained.
What I love most is the detes that you can find here. There are a lot of wall decors and the sculpture of the elephant looks so cute.
How to book V.I.P. Suite
Booking for the hotel is available online via booking.com, expedia, agoda and hotel’s website. Mostly, the cheapest rate that you can find is with agoda.
Cons of V.I.P. Suite
Sanitation and Facilities
The room smelled like cigarette smoke. I don’t know why it smelled as if someone just finished smoking because our room is a non-smoking(area). Also, the flat-screen tv wasn’t working during our 1-day stay.
Although the place is in the metro, it’s still one ride away from restaurants and malls especially on a rainy season or when you are not used to having long walks.
Even when the doors are closed, it is still undeniably especially the noise coming from the balcony.
The overall experience was great given that we were treated nicely and the staff attended to our needs accordingly.
Kudos to all of the friendly staff who greeted us warmly and the security guard who took an extra effort in finding a good taxi for us on a rainy evening!
