Location:

Good for walking – The apartment is centrally located in the heart of Makati. A major shopping centre Greenbelt-Glorietta is less than a minutes walk away while Ayala Avenue, the Philippines's equivalent of Wall Street, is a 5 minute walk away. Major Banks such as HSBC and Citibank are a 5 and 10 min. walk away, respectively. Ayala Museum is less than a 5 minute walk away. For your food needs, there is a 24 hour convenience store located in the building, while a regular supermarket is less than a 10 minute walk away.

Great for getting a car or mass transport- Given the apartment's central, location hailing a cab is easy while the nearest Mass Transit Station (MRT- Ayala Avenue Station) is around a 15 minute walk away.

Great as a base for visiting other sites in Manila- Makati lies roughly in the middle of all the action in Manila. Historic Intramuros (the walled city of the Spaniards) and Chinatown are around 30-45 minutes by car. Ermita / Malate (a cultural and artistic centre for centuries) is around 30 minutes away by car. Newly minted shopping and entertainment zone, Fort Bonifacio, is around 15 minutes away by car. The International Airport is around 30-40 minutes away by car. (As you can tell from the travel times, Makati is close to everything. What delays most car trips is the inevitable traffic.)

Note: This apartment is NOT AFFILIATED with the BSA TOWER HOTEL which runs in the same building (this has had some abysmal ratings on tripadvisor [pls check for yourselves]) This apartment is owned and leased by two brothers.

Q: I am new to the Philippines! What is the difference between Makati and Manila?

A: Manila is a hodgepodge of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one of these cities. An apt analogy is that Manila is like New York. New York is made out of different burrows while Manila is composed of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one such city and would, continuing the analogy, be comparable to New York's Manhattan district.

Safety:

Given the nature of the unit's surroundings (financial and shopping districts) it is not an exaggeration to say that the area is one of the safest in the entire country. One can walk around at night without any fear of anything untoward happening. Moreover, the building itself has round the clock security with roving security checks.

Honest Assessment by Owner:

Frankly, if the unit were a hotel, it would rank only around 3 ½ stars. However, considering the size and amenities of the apartment, coupled with its location, we sincerely believe that a stay with us is excellent value for your money. Some minor annoyances to the unit (this is after all an honest assessment): a) You have a view of Greenbelt and the buildings of Ayala Avenue but these are obstructed views and not much to write home about; b) bathrooms could use more counter-space.

Other available services:

We try to offer our guests the convenience of everything. Some are free and some are for a small fee:

a. City Guide (free): Our suggestions on where to visit in the Philippines as well as local hot spots.

b. Foreign Exchange at competitive rates: So you don't need to worry about finding a reputable money exchanger or running out of pesos.

c. Advise on other destinations in the PH (Free): Manila is a great jumping off point to other local destinations. Some examples are sunning yourself in world famous Boracay Island, swimming with Whale Sharks in Dunsol, relaxing in the mountain atmosphere of Tagaytay, scuba diving in Batangas, or island hopping in Coron. Wherever you want to go in the Philippines, we can offer advice on where to stay.

d. Keep your bags while you are away (Free): If you do decide to go out of town you don't want to be lugging all your stuff with you. You can leave your other luggage with us until your return to Manila.

e. Translation Services (Subject to Availability: Not everyone has English as their lingua franca. We offer translators who can communicate in Chinese (Mandarin or Hokkien) and Korean.

f. Event Photography: Let our photographers worry about the pictures so you can focus on enjoying yourself.

The Luzon region

Manila is the capital of the Philippines with a plethora of holiday options available, including: historical sites, shopping, nightlife, cultural exhibits, local color and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Moreover, Manila serves as a great jumping off point for other Philippine destinations such as scuba diving spots, beach outings, mountain hikes and the like.
