World class hotel with very spacious rooms!!!”
Our stay is one of the best stays we had in all hotels! I've been to luxurious hotels all over Asia and this is definitely one of the top! Spacious rooms and I mean really spacious! We used our 2 bedroom suite for my bridal preparation and all my suppliers and families fit very comfortably! The room is so charming, the photographer takes a picture of us and wedding materials in any and all corners of the hotel! The hotel is so luxurious, all TV are huge and there's even a flat screen in the bathroom! lovely lovely place to stay at when you're in ortigas, manila! My wedding is soo beautiful and one is because we chose Oakwood Premier Joy Nostalg Manila!
Family with Dog and Child”
This hotel was perfect for our needs: a view of the city during the New Year's Eve fireworks without the noise and smoke. The studio deluxe was more than enough space for our golden retriever and our young daughter. Oakwood Joy Nostalg is one of the very, very, very few pet-friendly hotels in Metro Manila. There is a higher room deposit and a separate pet fee which I think is fair. Though they can differentiate themselves even more by providing a small kit or goodie bag for the dog. Guests thinking of staying here and ordering food in should bring their own cleaning and washing provisions such as dishwashing liquid and a sponge. (I wish they would provide this; they can partner with eco-friendly suppliers such as Human Heart Nature, etc.)
Home away from home”
Always a "joy." Well, I've stayed in your hotel 3x-and so far, I haven't been disappointed. We always enjoy the full-service kitchen, spacious room (even for the smaller suites), ample storage areas for longer stays.My 7yr old son especially enjoys the TV in the bathtub in the 1BR suite.We never see these features in any of the 5-star hotels (&other similar hotels w/ kitchen features) we've tried.Definitely a "family" hotel with a design and lay-out that are well-thought of, it offers a lot of room features (love the tile details and shower that converts to a sauna!) that are understably more difficult for the hotel mgt & staff to maintain, but surprisingly, Oakwood has kept each unit as fresh-smelling & clean as can be expected of a 5-star hotel. I can't also ignore the friendly and obviously well-trained staff (having worked as an Events Mgr for a big Pharma company for many years,and having stayed in EDSA Shang/Sofitel numerous times I can safely say I'm in a good position to assess how well the Oakwood staff are trained-though I have yet to experience working with them for an actual function/event).And all this for a price that is within reason.Other family hotels in the same category have somehow "failed" to measure up in terms of cleanliness/ updated room standards over the years, so we stopped going back. Hope you will be able to keep the good job up (cleanliness+updated room features+reasonable price+friendly & well-trained staff), so we will keep coming back.;)
Favorite Staycation Hotel”
We keep coming back to Joy Nostalg Hotel. It is our favorite staycation hotel because our furbaby is welcome here. Their rooms are luxurious and huge. The bathroom is glorious. I love the bathtub. We will definitely be back!
stayed here for the 3rd time”
my wife and two kids (with ASD) stayed here for the 3rd time. We really love the one bedroom suite. (haven't tried the 2BR yet). my kids loves the big open space in the room. as usual the staff were very nice and accomodating. we celebrated my son's 6th birthday there and it was great. my kids enjoyed the bathtub and the pool. i was able to get my workout done in their gym which is well equiped. my wife liked cooking in the kitchen and having a dishwasher was really a plus. We highly recommend Joy Nostalg especially if you have kids. keep up the good work! will definitely stay here again.
Best Birthday Celebration”
We are "experienced" hotel staycation travelers & Oakwood really met our standards. I was celebrating my 45th birthday & I chose Oakwood because of the spacious 1-Bedroom suite with kitchen, living room & dining area. But mainly I chose it because of the luxurious bath tub. I loved the bath gel, it had the most bubbles that I've ever had & I only used up half a bottle. Plus the indoor heated pool & jacuzzi was great because my toddler loves to swim so we had a good time. The water could be a little hotter though. I was really surprised that the kitchen was well equipped complete with a dishwasher and washer/dryer. They also had kitchen tools, pots & pans etc. The lasagna we brought from home we ended up baking in the hotel room because the oven was so nice. The full size ref was also great. One thing I noticed that set Oakwood apart from the other hotels we've stayed in was the courteous staff. Sometimes i would ride with them in the elevator & they would always greet me. They were very helpful and offered to carry for me the food I had delivered to the hotel for my birthday. Security was also good because they don't allow the delivery guys to enter the premises. I always had to go out the door to pay them & get the food delivery. Having a Mini Stop convenience store nearby was also beneficial for guests for the items we forgot or need during our stay. Improvement suggestions: The Kiddy Play Room could be improved by adding more play equipment for the kids. They only had 1 slide so when other kids started coming in, my son had to give way to playing with it. Plus a ball pit would be better than having the balls roll around on the floor. It could prove dangerous if kids slip on them. I also noticed that they charge P50 for a bucket of ice. Other hotels I stayed in don't charge for it. For the amount we pay for the room, maybe they can waive this additional charge just for ice.
Joy Nostalg is perfect for family staycation. The hotel is strategically located in the CBD of Ortigas close to malls, spacious rooms with perfect amenities plus you will have the convenience of preparing your home-cooked meals for the family.
Great birthday staycation!”
First time to try this hotel for my birthday staycation. Booked last minute and lucky that I still got a good room at a good rate. CHECKING IN was a breeze. Just presented by Agoda voucher and gave an accidental deposit of Php 2k and I'm done. I must say they have HUGE ROOMS! This is so far the biggest 1 bedroom hotel that I have ever seen. The room has complete FACILITIES- washing machine, induction coooker, a dishwasher, microwave and even a complete set of kitchen ware. I requested for a double twin bed so me and my folks can sleep in separate beds. The BATHROOM is amazing! I enjoyed the bubble bath! They have television everywhere- living room, main bedroom and even in the bathroom. Though these are smart TVs, I tried to hook it up to the internet but to no avail. Prolly I wasn't doing it right but yeah the sound system is good. Bluetooth speakers and high speed internet is a good combo. :) The only thing that I think they can improve is maximizing their room space. The rooms are huge but there are so much "empty corners". The 1-bedroom can still be converted to a 2 bedroom unit. The furniture is a little "antique" and "bulky"making the modern room look a little old. Maybe they can include more sofas instead of wooden tables that are not really useful. The lighting is also a little too dark/gloomy for the room. Thank you to the wonderful STAFF as well for the mini cake they gave during the stay. I would definitely like to stay here again for another birthday staycation and small family gatherings. Hope they can maintain that to attract more people to celebrate with them. Thank you!
Need I say more? Our group of 6 definitely had a relaxing experience staying at the hotel. The room, the location, the amenties are all superb! Not to mention, the super good looking staffs of the hotel are all very accommodating us. Their responses on our quick queries are on point. Would gladly come back and stay again at Oakwood Premier Joy Nostalg Center Manila. Thank you for the Nostalgic experience!
Our brief stay in Oakwood Premier Joy Nostalg Center Manila was awesome. So far the best hotel we've stayed in. A very convenient place to enjoy and celebrate our wedding anniversary with our children. Highyl recommended.
Excellent place to stay”
This was the first time I stayed in the Oakwood Suites. I have stayed in many places in Manila but this is by far the best place I have stayed in for the price paid. The quality of the one bedroom suite I had was superb. Fully fitted kitchen, large lounge with big TV, large king size bedroom with big TV and a fantastic bathroom with a shower that doubled as a steam room and a free standing bath with a 32 inch TV above it. The hotel staff were excellent and very polite. I was so impressed I extended my stay. Being only 2 minutes from both Podium Mall and Robinsons Mall, there is plenty of choice for restaurants and cinema. I will definately stay here again next time.
The best place to stay near Megamall. Staff were warm and so professional”
It's my second time to stay at Oakwood and again I am impressed with everything! Our room was spacious with the view of wacwac golf course. The staff were warm respectful and very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this place if you want to be near Ortigas, Megamall, Greenhills, it's near everywhere. We took a cab from Oakwood to Tomas Morato and spent 4USD. What a bargain! Oakwood Premier Joy Nostalg is the place to stay!
Will definitely come back!”
Not the first time in Joy Nostalg and worth coming back as always! Spacious rooms and amazing bathrooms! Just too bad you have to pay for everything like ice, extra plates and even ice! Had some pesky neighbors but after havingnit reported we did notice they reduced their noise. Rooms should be soundproof! We hear banging and laughing from rooms besides us and above us. But still a good deal since its a cheap hotel
Joy itself is a nice place, the suite is excellent! perfect for a family or a group. I can say it equipped as an apartment hotel suite, parking is limited so you have to park outside, there's a nearby parking area. Parking attendant are not welcoming though, they need a little polish and politness when facing guests. People at the reception are nor welcoming, we can not sense the vibe of hopitality in the Philippines, even the door attendant at the main entrance, They are not helpful at all. If it's just about the hotel suites, no problem but for the people who can really add up to its gloroius name JOY, they need to be welcoming and helpful or else it wont be a nice place to stay in the future... add up those who were on duty at the pool, be polite please...
everything good, especially staff are really nice ”
very good and inexpensive, if next time we go to Manila again, we would love to stay in Oakwood Premier Joy Nostalg Center again. Staff are really nice and helpful.
Excellent standard of accommodation”
I always choose the Oakwood Suites in Ortigas becuase the quality of the rooms is exceptional. Ortigas is a business area and as such is much quieter in the eveings. It is withing 5 minutes walk of 3 shopping malls and there are a number of restaurants to choose from close by. My tip would be not to have breakfast included as part of the room deal, preferring to go over the road to the Podium mall and take breakfast there at a fraction of the cost and with a greater choice. Internet is expensive in the hotel rooms at 600 PhP per day. If you have wifi and enjoy a coffee, again go to the mall where you can sit and drink enjoying free connection to the internet. I highly recommend the Oakwood because what you get for your money is really excellent quality.
What i thought of the Hotel”
The Hotel was Fantastic, I Loved how big it was inside. There was Everything we needed inside from Plates and cup, to even a Washing machine/dryer combo. Which made it great for washing my clothes from my trip out on the town. The Bathtub with a tv was really impressive also. The pool was closed which was a disappointment to us. I thought that they should have given us a discount for Not being able to use the pool which i really wanted to use. The Location was Great, The Staff were Great. They are building a high rise Next door so if you don't want the construction noises you should request a room on the other side of the hotel. Out of all the 5 star Hotels i have stayed in Manila i was Disappointed in the Breakfast Buffet. The Marco Pollo was a lot better and had more choices. But i liked the rooms here better though. So if they improved their breakfast buffet. This would Be My Number One place to stay in Manila for a 5 star hotel.
Luxurious Place for a Staycation”
We were very happy with our stay in a one bedroom suite. The unit was complete with furnishings and kitchen equipment that would ensure a comfortable and relaxed stay in the hotel. The only downside i experienced was that the hotel was rather stingy with providing of bathroom toiletries. We were a family of 4 but the toiletries provided were enough for just 1 person. When i asked for additional supplies, i was told that this would already have extra charge. Another issue i have is the lower rate which i found out is being offered to local residents. In their brochure, we could have booked with the hotel directly for P 7000, this is for a one bedroom suite with buffet breakfast for 2. Therefore, i did not get the best rates from Agoda since i could have gotten a better deal if i booked directly with the hotel.
Joyful & Relaxing”
This is a perfect staycation place for families with young children. We love the heated pool. The room is comfortable with complete amenities. It has the comforts of home but in a 5 star ambiance. Room is very spacious. Location is superb - heart of Ortigas. Easy access to food and shops. Staff were friendly and attentive. I will stay here again on my next visit to Manila. The only negative comment I have is that on our last day I noticed that the drain in the shower area did not drain fast enough which I reported to the staff. I would also like to suggest that they provide kitchen towels to make tiding up easier for guests. Even though I know there's housekeeping I still prefer to keep my room clean. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely come back.
A brilliant find”
This was the first time at the Oakwood Suites in Ortigas. The price of the room is great for the quality of accommodation provided. The beathroom had a steam room and TV over the bath, great for relaxation. The breakfast was expensive for what it was, so eating out was the better choice since the malls are a couple of hundred meters away. I was so impressed I extended my stay. Getting taxis is not easy between 5pm and 8pm so if you need to go somewhere else in manila, give your self plenty of time top get a taxi. The staff in the lobby are the best bet for getting local taxis. I have stayed all over Manila and this will be my preferred choice for the money from now on.
