We travel frequently to Manila (Makati City) on business and during my last to visits in Sept 2011 and Nov 2011, we choose this hotel / serviced apartment. We were booked on floor 16th & 17th each time and at Somerset Salcedo Makati, the rooms are significantly bigger than most service apartments at Manila. As it is rather old requiring a renovation, it was not overly expensive and relatively large. It has a complete kitchenette which works with gas but not much use for me. It also had a Microwave and fridge but it was old and dated. The rooms do not have a option of TV in bedrooms, they only have one old set of TV (not LCD) in the living area which was big let down too.
I had some major issues with this service apartment with internet connection, Daily buffet breakfast and the hotel elevators. For a premium service apartment in a business area like Makati city and business travellers like me, it makes a NO Sense living without Internet service at all. Secondly, the shortage of elevators, there are only 02 lifts for 30 floors with each floor holding from 5-7 rooms. Each time i wanted use the lift to either move up or down, i had to wait not more than a 5 – 10 mins and that was frustrating. This building doesn’t even have service elevators, hence all the service providers like housekeeping and others also use the same lifts.
Thirdly the daily buffet breakfast is disappointing as well as internet and other services. The spread for this breakfast option is very very limited and has no options at all. Also during both my stay, we found same or repeated options for breakfast, the choice for hot food in breakfast is highly limited. They do have an option of GYM / workout and indoor pool, but the indoor pool area is stinky and small.
