We shared another Anniversary here at Robinson place condo homes, We ask for a different room this time just because the offer different types , being acquainted with personal , they welcomed us once again with open arms , thanks Gals . I ask for a studio condo this time , and loved it especially when the told us we would be staying on floor # 35 [ WOW ] we loved our previous room just above the pool and spa area , but loved this room , [ want it for my own ] the views were spectacular .
My wife and I have stayed at the 5 star hotels , 4 star and loved those hotels , but we enjoyed this Condo the most for all around best value . My wife and I just love the convenience of having one of the best malls 7 stories under us , the beauty of the pool and the city right out our patio , the room is great and we loved that the cleaning took place every 3 to 4 days at our convenience , more alone time for us. I enjoyed cooking for my wife , with the super market so close , we enjoyed are time here , also we ate out all most every day with so many restaurants all in one place , this is are favorite way to stat in Manila once a year for are Anniversary.
This hotel is a dozen or so apartments in one of the high rise towers in the city centre - so not really your traditional hotel. Thanks to this, it feels more like you are part of the city plus you get much more living space compared to a hotel room. The price is also very attractive for Manila. I enjoyed my stay in Manila largely because of the location of this property. It is really in the very heart of the city with plenty of restaurants and transport options, and easy access to key sights. In fact I walked almost everywhere. There is also a big mall downstairs - where you can get all you need to eat, read, wear, pharmacy, you name it. The view from the balcony is really nice - both by day and by night. The apartment is relatively basic, but has all you need: kitchen with pots, plates and cutlery, a kettle and toaster, cooker and microwave (no coffee machine though). The bed is comfortable. The place is clean, although they do not clean every day (I stayed three nights and one cleaning was included, they asked me when I wanted it). There is no traditional reception, but you can call them and they are very responsive. As an added bonus, there is a small gym with basic equipment and weights and a swimming pool for the residents. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.
this is my second time staying in this condo & feel very comfortable,first i use to stay at studio, this time i try the 1 bedroom but they don't have AC in the dining area, so if i have a visitor ,i had to open my room to feel that AC.aside from this, everything is perfect. a special mention to Annie & Irene they are very accomodating. maybe next time around i can meet Ms. Odette.,
This is the 2nd time staying here. Odette, the owner is great like always, She really goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable. The room is fully furnished, with microwave, stove top, dishes, refrigerator, rice cooker, toaster, etc. They will clean your room and bring clean towels every day if you ask. I had no problem with the room, but I did have a big problem with the security. Upon trying to go swimming with my girlfriend, I was told that only condo owners could swim there. Although they have a swim team come every Monday night to swim, and I see large groups of friends swimming there daily. I really think they have a prejudice to foreigners here. I told Odette, the owner, what I was told and apparently she straightened it out with them, but I wouldn't know, i did not return to a place where I am not welcome. Another time, I was coming there late at night going to my room, and the desk guy starts hassling me about who I am, and which room I am staying in? I lost it on this guy, I don't expect to be babysat for a room I paid for, or being shut out of places I thought I had paid for already. Even upon arriving at the room, they never asked me for Identification, or anything regarding who I was since I am renting the room from the owner, not their front desk. As soon as my girlfriend got there, they are acting like she cannot stay there unless she provides identification (She thought she forgot it but found it the next day), then asking us to make a copy of it for them? Excuse me, you are asking for it, you make the copy! Upon telling Odette everything that was going on, she explained they have a newer, stricter security. Apparently that means they will chose whom to block from the pool, or hassle late at night. I am very saddened by this as I really liked the room, the owner and her staff, but if things do not change, I will not return to a place I paid hard earned money for to be treated as an welcomed guest. Odette truly deserves better than the Mickey mouse security they have working there, it will cost her business in the long run. One time the internet went out due to a failed payment, and she even bought us red wine to make up for it. She did everything in her power to make us feel at home, unfortunately, the staff is just not up to par. I could just imagine if I would like to invite guests to my room-forget about it.
Advantage: 1. Perfect Location (Malate/Ermita), it is like in the middle of Manila. Easy access to different places. 2. Robinsons Mall located just exactly besides the condominium. Perfect for groceries and shopping. 3. A lot of bars outside (I mean those bars who have special offers lol) 4. Smalls streets and local people around. (if you want to feel the city by walking). 5. Swimming pool. If you want to swim after a long day. (we enjoyed it) 6. Room is quite big enough for 3 persons with sofa, kitchen and toilet. Disadvantage: 1. Traffic is always your worst enemy. EVERYWHERE. 2. Be careful when you go around in the mall even in the streets, scammers go around also. 3. Bars are not good for kids.
This apartment is set in the heart of Manila it is on the 17th floors of very secure building,the apartment has 2 large well furnished bedrooms with 2 full size bathrooms the whole unit is fully air conditioned. It has everything one requires for a stay of 1 day to 1 month. The owner of this apartment checked us in at 10pm and spent a long time explaining the apartment. It rates better than some motels I stayed in Australia. There is access to Robinson's Mall which has everything you will need and eat. I would thoroughly recommend this unit to any traveler. I will return.
I cannot say enough about Odette, the owner of the condo I stayed at. I came during the APEC meeting and the airline delayed my flight which pushed me into the next day to arrive. Hotwire did not want to credit me for the day I was going to not be there, so I had to keep bothering them until I found the right person to fix it. They emailed Odette to see if it would be ok with her and it was which saved me $107. She allowed me to do an early check in without a fee at 2am! There was NO deposit which was a surprise. The room was clean and spacious (I got the one bedroom w/ balcony} And had all the comforts of home, big refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, pots, pans, dishes etc, not to mention cable tv and DVD player. The next day I realized the A/C was not working properly so I called Odette, she sent someone immediately to look at it, turns out it was frozen up and needed to be replaced. The very next day she bought a brand new one for us! I had a couple ordeals with the staff that were taken care of by Odette immediately as well. They will come and clean every 3 days which is plenty if your not a slob. The tow gals that clean were so friendly, I had them help celebrate my b-day with ice cream and cake with my girlfriend and I. I always try to leave a tip for them and they go above and beyond expectation. The only bad thing I can say about the place is the neighborhood. A lot of beggers and weirdoes at night which can be expected. But you are close to everything, they give you a key card to go directly into the mall and not mess with security, Robinsons has the supermarket to get things and food to cook, or eat there too. MOA and Starcity are 10 minutes away or so. LRT is a 10 minute walk to Taft ave. They have a ministop just outside for 24-hour needs. I would highly recommend staying here to my friends, the main reason being Odette, She was very patient and understanding with all of our needs, and dealt with them immediately and professionally. I will definitely be back.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at MCH Suites at Robinson's Place. We found the studio room to be reasonably spacious and comfortable. The air conditioning was superb, the best we have found in any Manila accommodation in the $50-$90/night price range. In addition, it was very quiet with no loud night clubs, discos, or other things coming into the room. It also was one of the quietest accommodations we have stayed in at that price range in Manila. There was access to a nice pool and basic fitness room within the compound. The access to the mall was superb and provided easy access to a supermarket, shopping, and a variety of restaurant food choices at a variety of price levels. The convenience was significant. When we finished our stay, we said it was our new first choice place to stay in Manila. However, a few weeks later one of us stayed at the BSA Tower in Makati. We found that place to be even better, slightly cheaper, and easily double the size in terms of spaciousness for the same "studio" room. The air conditioning was slightly worse, but still quite good. The proximity to Greenbelt Mall was great, although there were fewer "budget" food options nearby than when we stayed at MCH Suites. In addition, there was no nearby supermarket. It also had a more full-time reception and more "hotel-like" staff. Overall, we enjoyed MCH Suites at Robinson's Place and we also enjoyed the BSA Tower in Makati. All things being equal, we would llean towards the BSA Tower for future stays, but if price suddenly became significantly different between the two, we would probably book the cheaper since they are both good.
This one bedroom unit on the 7th floor has a trendy and a well equipped kitchen. Bedroom has a southwest feel to it ( I am from Southern California). 7th floor is where the pool, gym and veranda park are also located. Down at the lobby, is a convenient private entrance to Rob's mall.This super clean unit, over 500 square feet, made it airy and relaxing. Overall my 8 days stay at this unit was superb and would recommend it to anyone. A big plus also is the customer service oriented owner, who without hesitation, forwarded the items I left, to my hotel in Davao. I received them the following day. Overall my experience at this property exceeded my expectations and will stay here again on my yearly trips. Great Job!
