Bad experience
Kept me in d lobby from 1030 to 1430 hrs. Same time guests from Europe, Korea, China, USA were attended and given rooms immediately. Why ? Coz I am an Indian ? This hotel is not new to me I have checked in many times, but his time it was horrible. The room was pretty congested with no good view from room. Will never again look for this hotel. Thank you.

Overpriced Hotel
Staff were friendly. Smoking Area on the roofdeck. Accommodating service driver to the airport.
The Cons: 1. Overpriced. 724$CAD for 2 deluxe queen rooms for 3 nights. 2. Nickel and diming. Everything in the room and services were extra charges, including hotel service to the airport and even ordering delivery from jollibee. 3. Outdated rooms. Drawers inside the armoire can't be used as they can't be fully pulled out, you get 2 pillows. Room lightswitch positions do not make sense, if they work at all. 4. Card system for electrical use. Can't charge electronics once you leave the room. No dedicated 24/7 outlets for personal gadgets. 5. Restaurant food overpriced and NOT fresh. Milkfish tasted like worn-out socks, rice were dry and cold, and juices comes from a can. 6. Elevator system. Two elevators used by both guests and hotel staff. Waiting for elevator for 10 minutes is horrible. 20th button does not work. 7. Location. Heavy traffic. Faster to get anywhere walking. 8. Wake up calls. I asked for wake up calls for my friend's room and myself. Instead I get 2 phone calls to my room only. Pros: Friendly staff, service driver awesome. Nothing else stands out to mention. In conclusion, the hotel rates themselves at 4 stars. It felt more like 2.5 stars. I have stayed in dozens of hotels, micro-hotels, B&Bs, and hostels all over the world: from 0.5 star to 5 diamond. This was one of the most overrated hotel. No part of the hotel experience stood out as going above and beyond. If it weren't for the staff, This would feel like a 2 star. Not only was it overpriced, the nickel and diming of everything is definitely not a 4-star hotel experience.

Value-for-money hotel in the middle of Makati Ave
Location, friendly staff, big rooms
We were actually upgraded to their newer branch just across the street, and it was nice! The room was much bigger with 2 double beds compared to the old City Garden. All the staff we encountered were friendly also and the rooftop dining had fantastic views of the city. Worth checking in to if you're in this part of Makati.
