Take a look at the best value hotels in Makati.
This mid-range hotel offers good value in central Makati, near shopping, dining and nightlife. Rooms are a little bland but homey, with flat-screen, minibars, and free Wi-Fi; some have skyline views. The property features all the amenities expected of an upper-middle-range hotel -- including two restaurants, a small spa, and a fitness center -- plus a rooftop pool with expansive views, and free parking. The location is convenient for business travelers, but those looking to explore the sights in Manila may want to note that they’re all a 15-minute drive away.
Artina Suites Hotel offers competitive prices and a no-frills, homey stay within walking distance of famous restaurants and nightlife spots around Makati Avenue. It features 41 spacious suites with microwaves, mini-fridges, plasma TVs and free Wi-Fi. A small restaurant and a meeting room is all there is in the way of amenities -- but freebies such as breakfast and on-site parking are good perks. Overall, the property offers good value, but light sleepers may want to request a room facing the rear of the building, as East Zobel Street is busy and loud.
The Y2 Residence Hotel is a solid pick for young tourists and families, with striking decor inspired by anime as well as yin and yang. The spacious studios and apartments are equipped with kitchenettes and up to two bedrooms, and notable features include a rooftop pool with panoramic city views and a hip restaurant serving South Asian cuisine. The location in Makati is convenient for business travelers and for those looking to experience the area’s shopping and nightlife scenes -- but historic attractions are a long drive away. Light sleepers may want to note that exterior rooms on lower floors get some traffic noise.
The 61-room Crown Regency Hotel is a small upper-mid-range boutique in central Makati. All rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, electric kettles, and air-conditioning, but most are small and in urgent need of an update. There is a small diner-style restaurant off the lobby, a well-equipped gym, meeting space, and free Wi-Fi throughout. But the highlight is the hotel’s location within walking distance of several renowned malls and varied nightlife. The City Garden Hotel Makati is a little farther away from the shopping area, but has similar rates and many more perks, including a rooftop pool.
