The room was very clean and fresh smelling. Great view in my balcony and nice and relaxing place to stay and laze overlooking Manila bay by nightime. Superb service and friendly staff. Dan gave us a very warm welcome and service by the poolside. Highly recommended. This is our second time to come here.

It's a huge building near the very ugly and run down CCP Complex. Your business appointment in Makati is far away, especially in rush hours (almost all day).

Negative: we checked in to Sofitel so we can be at the airport for an early flight, bad idea. What's the point of being near the airport if u can't sleep at night.
