Overview

About the property

Apartment in Makati City, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

Description:

A 36 square meter studio distinguished by its clean and relaxing design aesthetic. The unit also features high speed broadband WIFI a flat screen TV with cable as well as a fully furnished and equipped kitchen. The cherry on top of this comfortable ensemble is a balcony form where one can relax and soak in the view of the city as well as catch the stunning vista of sunset over Manila bay.

The apartment is cleaned every other day of your stay - free of charge. The quoted rate includes all other fees, taxes, utilities and the like, so you don't need to worry about paying anything else!

Location:

Good for walking The apartment is centrally located in the heart of Makati. A major shopping centre Greenbelt-Glorietta is less than a 5 minute walk away while Ayala Avenue, the Philippiness equivalent of Wall Street, is a 10 minute walk away. Major Banks such as HSBC and Citibank are a 10 and 15 min. walk away, respectively. Ayala Museum is less than a 5 minute walk away. For your food needs, there is a 24 hour convenience store located across the building, while a regular supermarket is less than a 5 minute walk away.

Great for getting a car or mass transport- Given the apartments central, location hailing a cab is easy while the nearest Mass Transit Station (MRT- Ayala Avenue Station) is around a 15 minute walk away.

Great as a base for visiting other sites in Manila- Makati lies roughly in the middle of all the action in Manila. Historic Intramuros (the walled city of the Spaniards) and Chinatown are around 30-45 minutes by car. Ermita / Malate (a cultural and artistic centre for centuries) is around 30 minutes away by car. Newly minted shopping and entertainment zone, Fort Bonifacio, is around 15 minutes away by car. The International Airport is around 30-40 minutes away by car. (As you can tell from the travel times, Makati is close to everything. What delays most car trips is the inevitable traffic.)

Q: I am new to the Philippines! What is the difference between Makati and Manila?

A: Manila is a hodgepodge of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one of these cities. An apt analogy is that Manila is like New York. New York is made out of different boroughs while Manila is composed of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one such city and would, continuing the analogy, be comparable to New Yorks Manhattan district.

Safety:

Given the nature of the units surroundings (financial and shopping districts) it is not an exaggeration to say that the area is one of the safest in the entire country. One can walk around at night without any fear of anything untoward happening. Moreover, the building itself has round the clock security with roving security checks.

Other available services:

We try to offer our guests the convenience of everything. Some are free and some are for a small fee:

a. City Guide (free): Our suggestions on where to visit in the Philippines as well as local hot spots.

b. Foreign Exchange at competitive rates: So you dont need to worry about finding a reputable money exchanger or running out of pesos.

Wherever you want to go in the Philippines, we can offer advice on where to stay.

d. Keep your bags while you are away (Free): If you do decide to go out of town you dont want to be lugging all your stuff with you. You can leave your other luggage with us until your return to Manila.

This has been the 2nd time that we were hosted by the Alcoves. Although this time it was onlyy parents who stayed with them but I wa the one who arranged everything and I am very pleased with the outcome. My parents did not have any problem at all as everything went smoothly. They were both pleased with the place.

Everytime we have a trip to manila I always look at the Alcoves' place automatically for availability before I opt for other places.

I highly recommend them as a host. Their listings have very good locations as well.
