Great food in Spices Restaurant. Staff is very nice. Room is large with comfortable king bed. Pool area has a bar. Live classical music in the main lobby is a real treat and makes for a very relaxing place to chill and enjoy dinner or just drinks (or both). I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Manila looking for a nice upscale and comfortable visit.
"JASON FROM SPICES"
I had a meeting in Spices way back March 15, 2017 and experienced some minor shoe problem. My mind is already thinking of ways trying to figure out what to do since I am already in the middle of the meeting. As I excused myself for a break, I asked Jason if he could help me locate the nearest convenience store so that I could purchase a super glue as a temporary remedy to my problem. To my surprise, instead of buying and walking to where the store was, Jason offered his own super glue that was just in his locker. Extending a helping hand beyond expectation, I thank this man for saving my business day. I commend him for his care and wonderful service.
"Luxury Hotel at the heart of Makati CBD"
We stayed at a Superior Deluxe Room for a sudden mid week stress reliever. The value for money is okay because I get to experience luxury without going far from my home and workplace. We have a complimentary fruit basket in our room composed of apple, orange and banana. I enjoyed the complimentary coffee and tea making facilities because of the TWG tea because usually, the tea that is usually being served in the hotels are Lipton and Dilmah. I was given access to the pool and fitness gym, but its sad that we were not able to try the pool and the gym because of time constraint. I love the bedside table because from there, you get to control everything, from the lights, TV and to the room temperature. I was able to have my sought after relaxation because of the hot tub. Toiletries are way more than the ordinary. You get to experience luxury even in their small bottle.
"Not Peninsula quality"
I stayed here after being at the Peninsula Bangkok for three nights. The difference is big. This is not the same quality as the Bangkok brand. Its a massive hotel but does not have anything special. The room was very very old. It did not even looked as a 5 star hotel. The breakfast was delicious. A huge variety, it was fantastic. I think this hotel needs a big upgrade
Highlights: a. Grand and exquisite lobby. Ambience is classic and elegant. The decors esp. on the ceilings are worth taking a look at. b. The buffet breakfast is similar to Sofitel's, there are a lot of selections. c. Room amenities and toiletries are way more than the basics. They are with class and quality. d. Pool area is resort-like. I like the greenery surrounding the area. I cannot think of any lowlights. I hope that Manila Pen can sustain its beauty despite a lot of hotels flourishing in Makati. We don't want another Intercon or Mandarin happening to them :)
