This is my second time staying here, the hotel is due for some renovation/”

I’ve also stayed at the BSA Twin Towers location and although that place has better features and in my opinion cleaner and fresher feeling, this place is excellent for those looking to eat, shop, or relax with business to attend to in Makati. The price is well worth the value. I do prefer the higher room types rather than simple studio like I took this time but it was still a good useful room. Security out front seems well managed and the rest of the staff was always helpful and courteous. I’ve already verbally recommended this place to friends for our upcoming stay.

6 Very Disappointed Ladies”

BSA Towers rank as excellent as far as location and staff are concerned. But, I was truly disappointed with our 4-day stay. First, I was pretty impressed with the photos and reviews of BSA Towers online. That said, I immediately booked 2 separate rooms with extra bed in each room. To my surprise, I was charged soon as my reservations went through while our arrival was 7 months away. That's perfectly fine since I was pretty sure I made the best choice of a place in Makati. Upon arrival, we were given 2 older units but didn't complain until we found cockroaches in both rooms separately. The older units also had filthy a/c units, drapes, windows, and balconies. Ugh! I challenged the manager to personally visit each unit and tell me that I'm lying. We were eventually moved to a newer unit--one of those on the photos online. Well and good! But, the toilet in one of the newer units continued to get clogged and had fixed several times a day. Enough said! Thanks for the cake, though!

Cleanliness and Facilities”

Regular residents/tenants simply leave their rubbish outside the hallway. Special collection should be organised during the day or a facility made available to dispose of extra garbage. Better way to extract unpleasant smell , particularly on the hallway between Tower A and Tower B of BSA Mandaluyong. It is highly possible that waste liquid/water is staying stagnant in the sewage system underneath and must be cleared for continuous flow.

Same great location, dated building”

This is my third time having stayed here, I stayed here several years ago I believe in 2015. As of today July 2018, the hotel has been a decent place to sleep in a great location. It’s right across greenbelt, there are many nearby restaurants, a couple spas as well as various gyms including a boxing gym, crossfit gym, and traditional gym. The downside however is that there are opportunities not too far away of elsewhere to stay with the same opportunities but without the dated feel. For a few more dollars per night here on Agoda one could book a more updated cleaner feeling place. BSA has been very reliable and easy to use. They have a good helpful staff. They also have made a few small updates such as changing from traditional punch cards to RF cards for rooms. The overall feel of the building however does need renovation. I have had several problems with different rooms’ toilets which I was able to resolve but nonetheless frustrating. A great budget hotel but exactly that.

Great location, price and staff. Pressing issues need to be resolved to encourage return customers ”

There was no WiFi and phone service at the time we were checked which made it difficult to maintain communication with my family overseas. I had to rely on borrowed cellphones to communicate with the front desk from my room. There was also one day when I arrived with the bed unmade and I had to request the staff to clean the bathroom and provide fresh towels. The iron and hair dryer had to be requested from the office as well rather than being in the room. The Agoda app allowed me to choose options for beds. I chose two twin beds but the BSA staff informed me that they don’t have rooms that allowed for the options offered by Agoda. I would consider both Agoda and BSA for my future travels and for arranging accommodations for my family in the Philippines if such issues would be addressed.

Great location”

My mom love that it was right across Greenbelt 5 where her favorite shops were located. The only hassle was during my check in. I grab a car going to the building, when I arrived my grab driver was asked to turn around because the check in was at the back and mind you it was raining cats and dogs. When I arrived to the said check in behind the building which looks sketchy if not for the guy that told us awhile ago infront of the building to go around. When I checked in, I figured that I could've just use the front entrance and not hassle the driver. I mean they could give me a leway since it was pouring rain. But aside from that everything was great. WIFI was strong, room was clean and they cleaned it everyday. They made sure we cross the road safely. Convenient location since there was 7eleven, ministop beside the building and salons too. We needed massage the night before we fly back home and they send us good masseuse. Water and ammenities were replenished everyday as well.

Very Roomy. The seam on couch cushion was torn. The water pressure in shower was great except it would empty the approximate 6 gallon hot water tank located under the kitchen sink in just a minute .
