    Excellent”

    I had booked a one bedroom apt but from experience the ones that face the front are too noisy and impossible to get a good nights rest. The staff on duty was very helpful and as I frequent Aruga they upgraded me to a one bedroom premier for my 3 nights stay. It was super convenient, comfortable and quiet. I highly recommend the place for location at Rockwell and the size of the rooms!

    Pros Location next to power plant mall Exceptionally well designed suites. The layout was perfect. Machines at the gym made for some very good workouts Cons A slight stench. I suspect it's from the hvac. Find the same issue in most properties around in Makati. Barring that this property would beat most expectations in and around the area. Excellent

    Generally a very enjoyable stay. Great interiors, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, great location. This was a Holy Week long weekend stay for us and was a good escape from the noise and congestion of the city. Thanks for the snacks for guests in the 3rd floor lounge! The Aruga Cafe food was good and I loved the interior design and soothing color scheme of the lobby and the Cafe. Here is feedback for improvement: since this was a long weekend and more guests than the usual were surely anticipated by mgmt, the staff at Aruga Cafe could have been augmented so that service speed could be better. We waited for 20 minutes (and this was only because we had to follow up our orders at least twice) for simple dishes like scrambled eggs, arroz caldo, and toast to be served. The quantity certainly wasn't something that takes 20 min to cook and plate! The waiters also were not consistent with instructions on what could also be ordered from the menu for breakfast.

    Aruga by Rockwell is a good place to stay in as an alternative to big hotels. It’s our 3rd or 4th time to stay here. Their staff are always very welcoming, warm and always helpful. We booked the one bedroom suite this time. I like the fact that it has a 6-seater dining table and a kitchen where we can prepare meals. If you don’t plan to cook, there are so many restaurants around the area—you won’t run out of options. Aruga is also close to Poblacion which is a booming area where you can hang, drink and dine with your friends and loved ones.
