The perfect location and place in Manila!”
I have booked Guijo Suites way back in March for a stay in July. There were not too many comments for Guijo Situes. My friends advised me that the location is good for Makati, so I did decide to book the hotel, as the deal was just very affordable for our 3 nights in Manila. A week prior to my flights I have checked and reviewed the comments of guests who stayed before in Guijo, and there were much more available on comments than before. I got not scared, but I got the feeling that I should probably be aware.. Heading to Manila with a bit stomach ache, as having too of my cousins with me, german nationals never been in Asia before. As we arrived at the hotel, I was very much surprised and pleased by the ambience of the hotel. It is so elegant but yet cozy and very welcoming staff. The rooms were very clean, very nice and just perfect stuffed with the best of the best. You have all you need, and you are totally safe. My cousins stayed a level below.. and they have the same opinion of mine. So I am sharing their opinion as well. We felt very safe as security was around all the time. The staff very accomodating and smiling all the time. I have now found a place, where I will be staying anytime again when I come home to Manila. I just loved the stay, from the first very moment. You have all you need just around the corner. 3 minutes walk, you have a "SEVEN ELEVEN", "MC DO", "SHAKEY'S" just like everything is nearby.. so no need to worry about the location, even it is on a narrow street as commented before by others on here.. The location is safe, and we never felt unsafe at all! PERFECT PLACE AT THE PERFECT LOCATION!
Best kept secret in Makati. Great hotel/staff.”
This was my first stay at the Guijo Suites in Makati, booked through Agoda due to its good reviews. While I have stayed previously at the Marriott, Intercontinental, Shangri-La, etc., and all of them are quite good and well located, the Guijo Suites in Makati was, however, the best hotel I have stayed at in Makati/Manila, and the absolute best value that is available. The hotel, while located in a somewhat difficult to find location, is actually quite close to Glorietta / Greenbelt, and somewhat off the beaten path, although taxi drivers knew it once you gave them the cross streets for the hotels location. The room size is quite good (by US Standards), bathroom had a good shower, room service was excellent and very quick, breakfast buffet was decent. The hotel itself is a couple of years old and does not have a lot of rooms (I think I was told just 23 or so), and excellent value for the money. I will stay there again (despite some noise during the day due to construction across the street which was quiet at night). Excellent hotel, excellent value for money! Recommend it highly!
Exzellent Hotel with a professional service”
the stay in guijo suites makati was great! we rent the junior suite. the style of the room was excellent. everything was new and in function. the staff is nice, speaks good english and is always helpful and polite. the area is not the best, but within a short ride you are in the middle of makati. a special thing happened to me, i forgot my watch at the hotel. the watch was quite pricy and when i have realized my lost i thought i will never get it back. i have called the hotel and they found the watch in my room. they send me my watch per express back to my home. i must really say, you will not find a lot of hotels in which the staff and the management is so helpful and honest. i can just recommend this hotel to everybody and for sure if i will stay again in manila i will stay in the guijo suites makati. thank you for the nice stay.
"Excellent value and superb service"”
This was my second stay at the Guijo Suites and returned since I was fairly impressed during my first stay. By the time I was ready to check out, I was convinced I made the right choice. I'm not a fan of the large hotels and so Guijo Suites suited my need for an alternative smaller niche hotel. Although a little out of the way in Makati and the neighborhood not looking all that appealing with some industrial type neighborhood buildings, it is a relatively safe area of town. We had a first floor room, although on the small side was appealing to the eye. There was a window, upon opening found a ornamental bamboo garden outside the window. This bamboo was placed onto the outside wall so you're not staring at an ugly wall. It was tastefully done and added to the ambience of the room. The furniture was modern and the double bed was comfortably large enough for the two of us. Plus the bedding was pleasing to the skin. My guess is the hotel is newer and they seem to do a good job of upkeep. WiFi was free and ran quite fast. The hot and cold water in the shower was consistent. One question did pop up, the same question I had the first time I was there. In the shower, there is only a half shower door rather than a full enclosing door. The only irritation being that some water from the shower will inevitably end up on the floor of the bathroom. Never understood the design. The breakfast buffet was first rate for the price of the hotel. I ate there for lunch and found my chicken club sandwich and fries to be quite tasty. Surprising for "hotel" food. This is a terrific, quiet and peaceful hotel and great value for the money. The staff is very attentive. Couldn't ask for much more unless you are paying twice the price.
Great Stay in Makati”
This was our second time staying here -- 2 night stay. The location is much more quiet than other areas so easy to relax and sleep. Several good places to eat within walking distance. The hotel is gated and has guards so very safe. Very clean and comfortable rooms and bed. The breakfast buffet was included in the rate which included fruits, salad, scrambled eggs, meat, cereals, toast and pandesal and a few other choices. Not extravagant but certainly plenty of good food to start the day. They offer a small minibar in the room although we only drank water. The staff are kind and responsive with quick check-in and check-out. If your looking for a clean and comfortable stay in a quiet area of Manila -- no jeepneys -- Guijo Suites Makati is more than worth the $40 USD a night and we upgraded to the Jr Suite for $52 USD a night which included breakfast. Will definitely stay here again!
Guijo Suites good value in makati...”
There are very few good-value 3-star hotels in makati, manila - guijo suites is about the best I've found. The rooms are a bit small, but clean and functional - the air conditioner works well and is quiet. The included buffet breakfast is good (if repetitive)and about the best I've found in makati in a 3-star. I recommend Guijo suites....
Quiet, Clean and Near the City Center”
I've been staying at various affordable hotels in Makati, but Guijo Suites is one of the hotels that is in a kinda gated area. It is quiet, safe and easy access to the city. The hotel room is clean with free perks like toothbrush, shampoo, shaver, Qtips, etc. Sufficient hot breakfast is included (scrambled eggs, sausages, ham, toast, rice, fresh fruit, salad bar, coffee, etc). The people are friendly and helpful. The best experience I had is ordering a masseuse to your room. The masseuse is one of the kind. She does know how to relax your tensed muscles...I fell asleep during the entire massage. I will definetely stay at this hotel again. The room assigned to me had a queen sized bed and a single bed. It's worth a buck if you are staying as a couple or with a child.
Very satisfied for the amount of money we paid. ”
Our stay at Guijo Suites was very good. We have stayed there several times before and will continue to do so while they still offer good quality rooms at a very attractive price. We find it located well and close to our favorite spots in Manila. Its not right in the close to the main parts of Makati but I think that makes it alot quieter and we like that. The staff are very helpful and accommodating to any requests we have made. We have seen the hotel grow and hope this doesnt change the things we like about the hotel.
Great Accommodation! Excellent!”
Guijo Suites is situated near the central district Makati. Very accessible to all the hustle and bustle. Getting Grab wouldn't also be such a problem in this area. Also far from the main roads so you won't really hear a lot of unnecessary noises. The staff are excellent! It's really nice to find a place like this that also provides breakfast. The breakfast is alright for its price. Would recommend to anyone here for staycation or a business trip. The room is very spacious. The bathroom is nice and clean and will provide you with just simple bathroom essentials like toothbrush and soaps. Would go back here again!
Favourite hotel in Manila ”
I love staying at Guijo Suites. The staff are super friendly and accommodating and the food is delicious at the restaurant. Getting taxis aren't an issue as the hotel happily organises über or a taxi driver. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the mini bar is affordable prices instead of the ridiculous prices other hotels have. The only con would be the location as it is not exactly walking to distance to the malls but the taxis are frequent and organised by the hotel. Will stay here on my next visit to Manila
Nice stay in Guijo Suites”
I really enjoyed the two nights at Guijo Suites - it's great value for what you get. A good modern clean room, very close to the airport, and if you like indie-alternative rock music it's very close to the best small rock venue in Manila, SaGuijo. (SaGuijo is really cool place - great bands play there!). It's a 70 peso taxi drive away from Greenbelt, but Guijo Suites is a little hard to find - so make sure you have a map or google maps on your phone!
I have really enjoyed my stay at Guijo Suites Makati. The only complaint that I have is that there were constant disturbances of their TV channels on the TV and I was not able to watch any thing on TV or relax in front of the TV. I hope that they can sort out that problem. Otherwise I will definitely stay over with them again. They are very near to the express way to the airport and Ayala Street with good places, restaurants and malls to go to.
Lovely Hotel with a perfect Location!”
Please find the opinion stated of on the previous comments. We are his cousins, German Tourists and we stayed the very first time in Asia and we were just pleased with our experience at this hotel. We had the best stay in the loving city of Manila, and we will always recommend Guijo Suites again, as it is so valuable for the price we paid, and we will always come back to see you again! My cousin was guiding as, as he is a half filipino. He was our tourist guide, and we were on our honeymoon.
New hotel in isolated spot of Makati”
We enjoyed the stay at the new Guijo Suites because of the friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is unfortunately located in a neighborhood that secures both ends of its blocks at 10 p.m. at night with heavy locked gates. Only taxis and registered vehicles are allowed to enter. Because the Guijo Suites is a relatively new hotel, most taxi drivers are not familiar with the location as it is in a small street with only residential homes nearby. If you come into the neighborhood after 10 p.lm. at night you must find the side of the block with a manned security to open the locked gate for you. Greenbelt/Glorietta mall complex is about 2 km away.
Great place to stay in Manila”
The stay was great. We spent three nights in Guijo and can recommend this place to our friends. The price and quality combination rocks for this place. It is safe, less than a mile from Makati busy Ayala street that looks like Orchid street in Singapore. It is save, surrounded by banks, food places, and nice bars. Breakfast was a top notch. Service was quick and professional. They open the door for you when you enter and have answers for all your questions. Taxi call and taxi arrives within 5 minutes. We recommend taxi to go to Makati center, it cost less than 100 pesos to get to Greenbelt. A lot of foreigners. We are highly recommend this place. I put 10 stars for the quality and price and believe that the place is true 4 star hotel, not 3 stars that they state. Have a great stay.
Very nice small hotel in a quiet area of Makati”
we enjoyed staying in guijo suites makati for a few nights. the room was good, with all the comfort we wanted, and spacious enough. the hotel is very clean, staff is friendly and helpful. one minor negative aspect of our room is the fact that there's only a small window looking out on a small concrete courtyard where the fans for ac are located. but for just an overnight stay or for only a couple of nights this is not really a problem. we didn't stay inside anyway breakfast is included but the choice for complimentary breakfast is somewhat limited. in general i would recommend guijo suites to other travellers.
I had a good experience staying at the Guijo Suites last year (Feb 2014). This year I am returning again and had the same experience. Excellent! I stayed at the new wing which is new and clean. I like the location where I can go to the Makati Med and Gloritta within minutes. The staffs have shown professionalism. Special thanks to Ms Rosini, Sara, Tin Tin & Samantha who have provided me grab taxi and direction advices. Thank you and see you again soon. Yours Sincerely, Eric Tye (from Singapore)
Best value for money in Makati!”
Guijo is a small hotel tucked at not so busy side of Makati. Getting there would either have to be by private car or taxi since it isn't near a main road. Nevertheless, the place was cleverly built as every inch of space was maximized yet guests don't feel that they are cramped. I liked the way our room was set up in terms of having enough space for our baggage, toiletries & gadgets (loved the loooong table before the tv on the wall & in front of our bed), the water heater being cleverly tucked underneath the sink, and the availability of our own WiFi router inside the room. One downside though was that the glass enclosure was not long enough to shield the water from seeping through the rest of the bathroom. Hence, it was flooded by the time my friend and I finished with our own showers. On the other hand, I was too happy with the buffet breakfast complete with fruit, salad, bread, cereal, various kinds of meat, egg, rice, juice & coffee! I seriously expected a plated breakfast because of the low rate of the room we purchased. I didn't mind the small dining area at all! The waiters were very courteous & quick to address our needs, too. Lastly, I'd like to address the parking area of Guijo. I brought my own vehicle and the guards told me that I could either park along the street for the night, or bring it to a walled lot about 15-20 meters away from the hotel. I went for the latter due to security concerns. The opening to the lot was so narrow that only 4-5 inches allowance on both sides of my car were left as I entered. The lot was also not clean, and had lots of junk (wood, old clothes, steel). The area was full of rocks, too, and the whole lot wasn't cemented.
wonderful suite room, spacious and comfortable”
Had a wonderful time at guijo suites, the rooms were large, spacious and modern, in room Wi-Fi worked perfectly as each room had it's own router, bed was large and comfortable, booked the junior suite and loved the condo feel. Private balcony allowed for fresh air or for smoking, windows opened, twin split air con and two television units both independent with cable, a wonderful place to stay for long term or short. Fantastic prices, super safe street and area and many eateries and shops within walking distance.
Good stay (except for smokey room)”
Had pleasant stay at Guijo Suites Makati for more than a week. Staff was helpful, friendly, and efficient. Breakfast was good and substantial. Room was nice and bathroom is clean. Everything was OK, except for blurry TV (could be improved), microscopic fridge (could be improved). My biggest complain was that the room smelt of cigarette smoke despite the hotel's strict regulations. We had room changed but didn't make any difference because the ventilation system of the building would distribute the smoke to the other rooms. So: Smokers, the next time you want to lit a cigarette in a hotel room that clearly tells you that it is a non-smoking building, please DON'T. There is a reason why you are NOT supposed to do it. Don't let your selfishness affect the innocents, i.e. the sick ones and those with infants and young babies!
