je suis resté 15 jours à l'hotel : le personnel est très serviable, parfaite situation à manille (centrale)nourriture très bonne,les chambres sont très propres mais un peu vieilles quand l'on compare le luxe de l'hotel mais dans l'ensemble cela va, très très bon séjour, je reviendrai petit problème lorsque beaucoup de séminaires et donc augmentation des résidents : la nourriture lors du déjeuner est très vite partie et pas assez vite renouvelée, il faut de se lever tot mais bon c'est un détail...
wonderful classic luxury hotel but with a cut above in professionalism and warmth of staff. lovely! highly recommended--
The staff address you by name and give very personal attention. Hotel is gorgeous and well located.
Lobby, orchestra and staff.
The Peninsula is the best hotel in Manilia as far as I'm concerned
Breakfast was lovely. The variety of food available was good for all meals. The gym is excellent. Room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very nice and there was a nightlight, a nice touch all too often neglected. It's a very nice hotel and I would go back! But.... WIFI access ends the moment you check out. Immediately. Which means that even if you check out at 9am and could have checked out at noon, no wifi for you as of 9am. Hopefully you don't have to call a cab or write a memo. Perhaps you were thinking of a leisurely breakfast in the lobby after checking out while reading the paper online. Nope. In 2015, when you pretty much assume that internet access is available for a reasonable amount of time, that's a pretty strong negative. The staff was far too eager to serve and frankly, a bit overbearing. The first day, I had two members of staff burst into my room while I was in the bathroom (pretty bad luck, I suppose), one without knocking, the other with just a cursory knock and a half second wait. I learned to lock and chain the door and put on the DND light right away. Once I forgot the DND light but locked the door... Ooops! So while I was taking a nap, I got someone knocking at the door for 2 minutes till I got up so they could give me bottles of water. Eating in one of the restaurants requires that you keep a tight grip on your plate or glass if you are having a leisurely meal... a waiter is likely to swoop down and take it away before you can say a word, if they feel you are done, whether at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. While eating, one waiter after another will come over to ensue that you are enjoying your meal, interrupting a quiet evening, over and over again. The service has good intentions, but really needs to back off a bit.
1. Location in bustling Makati 2. Festive and Grand Lobby 3. Breakfast Buffet was top notch 4. Responsive and Pleasent Service 1. Room was old, small and not super comfortable 2. Weak Wi-fi in rooms 3. Expensive room service, restaurants and laundry options
The lobby is very nice. Nice room and room service, it's up to a 5 star standard. Why the staff cannot get me a taxi when I need to go to airport ? Asked me to use Uber and which I did. However, I am from United States and Philippines not accepting my form of payment and not able to request one. The staff suggest we just stand there and wait until a taxi come by.. end up I followed up myself after 20 minutes of wait; going back to concierge and ask them to grab me a local Uber... waited for another 20 minutes to catch one...cannot believed peninsula is so behind at this area !!
I loved the amenities, the buffet, the pool, and the extremely courteous staff.
I had a great overall experience. The only thing I didnt like was hidden cost,they ask me to pay way to much for breakfast buffet which was suppose to be include with the room. Since I didnt go directly through the free breakfast buffet didnt count I had to pay
Top things about this hotel in order: Location (you cant find any better), Staff, The Bed, Bathroom, Minibar, Spa, The Cityview, and Security. The rates are too exaggerated, You can find other much cheaper hotels with similar qualities, nothing very special about it for such a price
The reason I bought this hotel is because it said free Wi-Fi when I got up to my room and I wanted to use the Wi-Fi they told me I would have to sit in the office for the Wi-Fi to be free or I could buy some expensive Internet package. There were no blankets on the bed whatsoever just a sheet that you could unfold and put on top of you and the air conditioning was not adequate the room was hot when I entered the room and it never cooled off not even a fan to circulate the air. The morning breakfast was fine they made me pay a 1000 pesos deposit on the key and would not return until they had someone fully inspect the room never been treated like that interesting place. The air conditioner was not adequate to cool the room down. The Internet is only free in the lobby and it didn't work. You have to buy an expensive Internet card to use the hotel room Internet and the bed was very uncomfortable with only a sheet.
The room is very quiet and I was able to sleep well. Everything else is ok.
L'Atmosphère et le personnel sont toujours trés agréable. Le bar dans le lobby est trés agréable Les chambres méritent une rénovation. le layout du buffet pour le breakfast est un peu confusing
Le personnel est sympathique et serviable. Il se mettent en quatre pour vous aider. Les chambres sont superbes et très propres. Nous y avons séjourné 7 fois et je vais revenir. J'adore l'emplacement. Il n'y a rien à dire.
J'ai apprécié l'hôtel. C'était très agréable. La nourriture était excellente. J'ai eu l'un des meilleurs petits déjeuners que j'ai eu depuis des années. Le restaurant japonais est l'un des meilleurs. Ma première chambre sentait tant la peinture que j'ai eu un mal de tête en moins de 15 minutes. La deuxième chambre puait, mais était tolérable. On m'a dit que le problème venait de la construction.
Bon rapport qualité/prix
Le personnel était des plus énergiques, chaleureux et accueillant. Le buffet du petit déjeuner a besoin de changer le menu tous les jours ou au moins deux fois par semaine.
great. No complaints. Highly recommend this place. Top quality Nothing. Perfect. I will stay here again.
The friendly staff that are ever helpful.
I liked the behavior of the personnel and the trade off value for money. I had bad surprise to detect on the invoice that in one day the breakfast was charged twice!
Staff were very professional and very alert to all my needs.
The staff service was excellent and beat all the hotels that I stayed in Guangzdong South China, Hongkong, and Singapore. Rooms were very neat and tidy and comfortable to stay with free internet connection. Food served needs to give a bit more variation and choise. Inhouse movies could be shown free like what they do in HKong and Taiwan.
nice hotel in terms of the apartment that has everything one need ,quit and clean, near major shopping center and various restaurante. hotel entrance and general design is not suitable for familyes or desable person with trollys , to many stairs and the only access to the hotel is from the garage on back door which is dangours of cause of cars. also the breakfast was not that good and coffee taste like break oil
The location was excellent, easy access for taxis, and walking distance from main shopping complexe. Hotel staff where more than helpful and efficient at Check-in and Check-out. No complaints.
felt like i was in the basement with no view of makati
Security and security staff was great On departure I was stuffed around with the hotel transport to the airport.
fast house keeper not fair in the payment i paid, because i pay more than i had from booking.com
It's located by Greenvelt 1 which has everything you need re: stores, food, shopping. The room was spacious and nice. It was very relaxing and the staff were very friendly. The thing I didn't like was I had to pay for a half day for 1 hour. I was waiting for a ride and they came at 1pm, 12pm was checkout. l mentioned it to them just to see how they handle situations like that. They said,"sorry sir." They were polite but don't do anything. In fairness, it wasn't about the money, I would have liked to see something beyond words. I won't miss the 1200 pesos, I was just missing a good faith gesture. A voucher for free coffee would have at least showed an effort.
The service and security level provided by the Ascott's was excellent and to 5 stars international standards. Honesty and responsiveness of front desk personnel is commendable. Bathroom furnishing needs to be enhanced in order to improve averall staying experince.
service, facility, location, rates
The space of the apartment was excelent... Front desk friendlyness might need to be improved.
One word - ataraxis.
The floors were extremely dirty. Always had to keep shoes on otherwise feet were black on bottoms. We were even in the penthouse suite where you would think they take more care.
I liked the location, cleaness of the hotel..beautiful spacious room i think the taxes were too high
Location Ascott could not locate my reservation even when given my confirmation number and booking agents number. Front desk did not know what to do, they wanted to charge me double my original paid reservation and credit my paid reservation when it came through.....WHAAAAAT! Very late and tired, no one offered to make it right, front desk seem to have attitude. I finally called Kayak and had them locate original reservation which was faxed to front desk. Front desk calls me to tell me they have fixed it and I clearly told them... I FIXED IT BY CALLING KAYAK...which is something they should've done in the first place!!!!!
The location is near tourist attractions and the price is right for budget travelers The staff had an attitude. It was as if they wanted me to leave. The rooms are small. No safe in room. They required a deposit for some reason. I wouldn't stay here again. Better hotels for similar prices.
We liked the location, very convenient to atm, food, stores. But after dark there are homeless around. View out window was good. Room size was good. Buffet was best in restaurant. (See the bad parts of this review because they FAR outweigh the good). Bad: A/C was noisy and leaked on the floor, smelled of mildew, carpet was filthy & stained, shower burnt us, hot in elevators & lobby, welcome drink so small it's a joke, room service menu missing items advertised, they charge ALOT for free local
not good at all, they are poor in hosptility.. they cliam i steel a pack of Cigrate!!!! Stupid hotel check out...you must count every thing before you enter..
Great location, staff was wonderful, clean big rooms!
Location Every stay at Oxford I have had issues with the hot water being hot .
the hotel is good for a traveller who like to enjoy nightlife and is very good location(shooping mall)-power plant,greenbelt,global city by using taxi cozt u abt (80peso-15peso) depend on traffic...is not good recomment for family to stay this hotel. the TV and the bed is old....
No hot water. Breakfast was poor.
Location good, very close to Makati Avenue Breakfast too much Filipino, nothing suitable for international. When you check-in, they ask you to sign the in-print for guarantee, which is never done in other countries. And when you check-out, they ask you if you had something from the minibar, and after your negative answer, they tell you to sit down and wait until they receive the answer from the floor if you said the truth or if you're trying to cheat them. I told them that this is very impolite and that they should process the check-out immediately, because the reception can receive the result of the room-check in the meantime the check-out is being processed. But they seem not to understand.
Great location; friendly with guests and visitors Lack of maintenance of room; needs to be repainted and refreshed.Balcony door badly leaking air
The service and comfort was would you can expect in a 5* hotel. The actual rate charged was higher than initially confirmed, due to local taxes and service charges.
Awesome customer service! Rooms were cold, no heaters
Staff were exceptionally friendly & helpful Location, though central, was adjacent to mix of the destitute/slums & consequently much begging. That said, old Manila is mostly a mix of this no matter where u go.
The location. The non managerial staff were very courteous and helpful. The. Reservations made was not I wanted, I wanted two beds. They gave me a? Queen bed and a trundle bed
I like themost How they r Friendly and the Hospitality is just great Overall, I would say it was really excellent time I have spent there.
Hotel staff were very courteous, responsive and helpful, no hidden fees all upfront, amenities are excellent and location is very convenient. Breakfast was always sumptuous and lounge has breathtaking views. Simply a welcome retreat after office hours with really beautiful views of the city. Beds were always well prepared. Hotel offered free parking for one car (not valet). Room came with free papers daily. Hotel's location is also in the red light district with lots of beggars and street urchins, street is a main thoroughfare and can be at times difficult for those who drive. Hotel is a bit old with carpets needing a complete overhaul or detailed steaming, beware of short shorts in the lounge; they will turned you away if you're Filipino. Hate to say it but feels like a bit of a whorehouse at times with local girls swarming a bit older foreign male. I could be wrong of course but you be the judge.
Staff was very friendly. Rooms are nice and clean. My stay was very comfortable.
Good staff Dirty room - stained carpets and furniture, cracked marble. I reserved an upper floor room but they lied saying no upper floors were available. This hotel is run by scammers. All the things inside the hotel are extremely expensive. They charge US$10-15 for mini bar drinks plus VAT etc. Internet was $27 for 24 hours -- even 4 seasons doesn't charge that! They rip you off every chance they get.
The friendly staff and the nice view over the town at the breakfast room. (top floor / 23rd level.) The unfortunate thing is the area the hotel is situated. Walking outside the hotel brings you right in the middel of the "red-light" district.
Friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. If you're lucky, you get a room with a nice view of the bay like we did. Also, nice pool area and gym. The breakfast was wonderful! Diverse international food to satisfy all cravings. The view from the dining room was great. There's even a garden area should you prefer to dine al fresco. Convenient location. Relatively close to the airport and to many tourist sites. Only a block away from Robinsons mall. Although the immediate area around the hotel seemed pretty safe, a little further afield and you get to see the nitty gritty of Manila. I still felt safe, but you have to be smart.
The location. I was the only one in the front desk - and the gentleman did not even ask me if I need anything. I had to ask him if he can help me to check-in - very unprofessional. We checked in to room 726 - kept coughing and sneezing in the middle of the night due to the a/c filter was so filthy. Finally turned it off and the coughing and sneezing stopped. Went to frontdesk, and had maintenance check it out - I even took a picture of the filter. He kept insisting that it's clean even you can see how filthy it is with your naked eye. He won't admit that it's so dirty - I did not bother to argue. I do not recommend this hotel at all!
Thank you vayama Noghing
The staff compensates for the poor faciliy. The only up side in this hotel is the desire of their staff to make up for the poor hotel condition. I would rate their staff A. However, the rooms have really disturbing issues. 1. Chairs and beds are worn out and the carpet have evidence of molds growing in them. The toilet pluming is old and often have the danger of clogging up. 2. The corridor carpets have evidence of molds growing in them as well. 3. The management of this hotel clearly must have serious capital issues as their hotel needs serious renovation ,not to mention,major cleaning up operation to make their hotel safe for guest. 4. This hotel will not pass under US standards and will most likely be shut down for health hazard conditions. Definitely not recommended for ASTHMATIC,COPD or people taking immuno suppressant drugs.
Proximity to embassy. Restaurant downstairs was good and room service was prompt. Location was less than 5 minutes to embassy and with traffic one hour from international airport. Cleanliness, seemed tone lacking in general it's needing better upkeep and detailing. Near the road so you hear a bit of traffic at all hours. Walls are thin so if your a light sleeper you could be woke up from the knocking next door.
Nice and peaceful I told front desk to change blankets on the bed and they didn't change it, very disappointed on there service
Elevator..it easy to go up to the room...clean..free breakfast..the room and toilet clean..
clean room, friendly staff, nearness to coffee shops and 7-11 drink prices in mini fridges, but most hotels charge that. 7-11 right around the corner open 24
I like the vicinity to the embassy Everything was fine for the money
Courteous staff, clean room and facilities, trustworthy parking attendants, very reasonable prices, location close to U.S. Embassy, reasonable "hotel service car" prices to the airport (600 pesos). Slow elevator service, tinted window in rooms is old and distorted, which ruins the view of the ocean front.
too long to check out other than that nice stay for the price also they charged too much money for transfer to airport
