El Cielito Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was large clean with bath tub but old.There were 2 large beds but no view. The food was ok the staff were accommodating. It is walking distance to malls at Makati. Close to NAIA 3 when you use the skyway.

It is nearer the super highway so no problem to be trapped in traffic on your way to the airport. Choose the room with large window, it great to have a window, however, there are rooms without window. There is these small cafe in the lobby, the graham fruit cake is the best, i am a cake lover and tried several cake items in the cafe, however, the graham fruit melts in your mouth, the sweetness is just very enough. The staff had a large smile despite its 1 am in the morning.

I had lunch and a meeting at El Cielito's coffee shop that goes by the name Kaffenena. We ordered Filipino favorites -- pork sinigang, bangus belly sinigang, pansit, pork binagoongan and adobong pusit. All dishes were delicious. Would recommend this place to anyone hankering for good, home-cooked family favorites.

The hotel is an old and tired property, located adjacent to several seedy night clubs. The place seems to be frequented by Japanese guys who enjoy bringing back girls from these clubs. Further, the rooms are NOT as the are shown on the website - the deluxe double room I paid for was in fact two double beds, no balconey - which is not what was shown. When I complained, they then put us into an even worse room. A delayed check out was advised as being 4800 pesos (more expensive than a 5 star hotel). It was only when I advised that I would call the police did the receptionist agree to 1600pesos for a 5pm check out. This place is an absolute disaster for any traveler and I would strongly recommend making alternative arrangements

Worth the price you paid for. Good location, clean room, nice staff, breakfast buffet choices was excellent for the cheap price... would book another stay here if i had the chance to go to this place.

On Arnaiz Ave., El Cielito Inn is a good economy hotel, with a view of Arnaiz Ave. and neighboring Amorsolo St., Makati. ... This ist, in the route of Pasay Road- Pio del Pilar Pasay City jeepneys. ...

On my first day, they served the breakfast from a list of limited menu to choose whether it's Asian, Western, etc. and was not allowed to mix the food choices which gave me a very limited variety. On the second day, I was surprised by the buffet breakfast that was served and I found out from the staff that if the total hotel guests reached 30, then they would serve the buffet breakfast. The room was not soundproof at all you could hear your neighbor clearly. The rest of my experience are pleasant- friendly staff, comfortable stay and good wifi.

During my 3-night stay, i experienced sprained of my right foot when we go to Greenbelt and at the Landmark. The Roomboy extended help by providing pail and ice as cold compress. There's a water dispenser along the corridor during our stay. Food served fit for Filipino taste since all participants came from different region all over the Philippines. The road where the hotel situated is not congested with traffic and i was able to go shopping at the nearest mart just two blocks away inspite of my sprained right foot. I really appreciate the location, the simpleness of the hotel and the food. I wish I could go back to this place again.

Staying at El Cielito Inn in Makati City PH is a mess. They have relatively small rooms and poor service. It's soo small -- small corridors, small rooms, small place to stay. Not recommended if you hate small places. I am sure you have other better options within the area. There are better hotels at cheaper prices nearby.

Me and my girlfriend live in the North which is 2 hrs away from Makati where our office is located and since we had an 8am meeting in Batangas on October 14, we decided to check in at El Cielito Inn so we could be well rested for our meeting. We checked in on october 14 at 7PM. The lobby was not impressive at all, staff was not as accommodating as what one would expect from hotel staff. We were given room 110 which was located at the far end of the hotel. To get there, we were led to a hallway so narrow that only 1 person can pass through, which to me was risky in case of fire. The ceiling had holes and the door leading to rooms 100 and up was popped open by a fire extinguisher. The room was a standard room. No hot water, the pillows smelled like someone just recently used them, they even had strand of hair on the pillow and the bed itself is just an ordinary hard foam. We requested to be transferred to a deluxe room and when shown, the only difference is that it had a fridge and the room as expected is slightly bigger than the standard. We were about to get it when i saw a cockroach on the desk. The roomboy tried to get it thinking it was dead but when it moved, the roomboy startled and walked out of the room to probably get something to kill the coackroach. Since it was already late and we were tired and wanted to rest, We decided to take the standard room. My girlfriend was in the bathroom when she saw another cockroach creeping out of the toilet bowl. When i took a shower, there was no hot water. Even the next day before we left, there was still no hot water. I was just thankful that we would only stay until 6AM or more or less 12 hours because i dont think i could last in that hotel for 24 hours. You know that feeling of excitement and awe you get when in a hotel that you wanted to stay longer and dont want to leave at all? You wont get that in this hotel. Upon check out, i told the front desk about the hot water and the cockroach and she acted as if she did not hear anything. The only nice thing I noticed about this hotel is that they have cable tv and they have decent breakfast selections. The taste and cleanliness, i did not dare to check. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone unless youre not after the cleanliness and comfortability of a hotel. For the same rate, one can find other hotels that can offer better service and amenities.
