Old run down hotel, great location

2 out of 5
by from Singapore
Posted Feb 18, 2017
We checked in late in the night, the room should have been ready for twin beds, but it was not. We had to wait for a while, before we got the room. The room was old, with smell of mould, the shower would flood, during a bath and one ended up standing in dirty water. At our request the staff accommodated a change in room. We moved from A32 to A43, the room was the same category. This was a smoking room and it was full of foul smell. The shower never gave any hot water as was the case with the other room too. The TV stopped working for the last couple of days. Our room was not cleaned when we got back from work at 4:30 pm. All in all, great location, good staff, run down facilities, depressing rooms, dim lighting, poor plumbing. For that price, there are other hotels around that are more modern.

Nice Surprise

Posted Dec 1, 2016
Pros: the staff are friendly, the hotel is clean and close to everything i needed
Cons: n/a
Location: Did not go out much, but when i needed to all i was looking for was close by which is convenient
I traveled with a 30 month old child. When I arrived at the hotel i was surprised to find out that because I had a young child with my, my grandchild in fact, the hotel had upgraded our room, this was not only a surprise but it was also accommodating as i have received many guests and the larger room was a welcome to all of them

Nice hotel close to the heart of Makati CBD

Pros: Location!
Location: Everything is close! Malls, Banks, public vehicle stops, a park, restaurants
Our stay at Somerset Olympia Makati was pleasant. It was near my husband's place of work, so he just walked to the office. It was close to the shopping district, so I was able to walk to my errands.

Excellent place to stay in Makati, in the middle of everything. If you there for business, vacation, bring your family. Very low key. The staff was great except for the front desk. Here is your key and have a nice stay. They need to talk more.....I would recommend this hotel.

Nice Alternative to Pricier Hotels

4 out of 5
by from Beijing and Everywhere Else
Posted Jul 28, 2014
This is a good hotel - well situated in the Makati area. Hotel rooms are functional, reasonably updated and comfortable, WIFI works well for business purposes. Breakfast facilities are OK, not great, but are good enough - if you are a business traveller, you just need to work your way through the tourist packages. Room care is good, but somewhat sporadic - not all amenities were refreshed on a daily basis - requiring a few phone calls to the front desk. Overall, this is a bargain for the Makati area, but it comes at a price. You need to push the staff just a little, and push your way through the breakfast line. But the hotel itself is great and the rooms are good - just as good as any other hotel in the area at twice the price.

Hotel is ok because it is very close to Manila Pen

3 out of 5
by from Makati, PH
Posted Jan 9, 2014
Pros: Location. Somerset's closeness to Peninsula Makati makes good food and excellent ambiance very accessible while paying for a cheaper hotel room.
Cons: Reception area is not too pleasant. Facade needs refurbishing. The parking area is dirty.
Location: It is very near 2 five star hotels Peninsula Makati and the Makati Shangri-la, lets you enjoy these 2 hotels. Glorieta is also near.
This is our second consecutive new year's eve at Somerset and we still enjoyed it primarily because of its closeness to the Makati CBD which has almost everything. The kiddie pool is lousy, don't expect your kid to like it specially if he is a swimming addict. The gym is equipped with the machine and equipment necessary to kick-off burning unwanted fats from the Christmas holiday. I wish their restaurant, Old Swiss Inn, brings back its old glory. It is like being served by a lazy maid in your own house with very limited food choices. The guard that raises the barrier going down the parking is rude but the guard in-charge of parking who writes down your in-and-out is very courteous and more than made up for his colleague's unpleasant attitude.
