Reviewed 14 July 2012

This is one of the best mid-priced boutique hotels in the prime area of Makati. The rooms are very spacious and well-appointed, the staff are sensational and I appreciate the smaller size of the hotel as it means that the hotel never seems crowded.
It is a great option for business travellers looking for a decent mid-priced option.

Room Tip: some rooms seem to have larger bathrooms and is worth asking for these.

My 16 year old daughter and I were really happy with our choice to stay at Hotel Celeste for two days of shopping in Manila. It was only a short walk from Greenbelt and Glorietta and even late at night we felt completely safe walking to and from the hotel. We loved the quirky decor. The included breakfast was more than adequate with several choices (although I wouldn’t say amazing). Our room and the staff where fantastic...nothing was too much trouble. They let us check in several hours early and even had a packed breakfast ready for us when we had to catch an early flight.

This is one boutique hotel that is a cut above the rest not just among boutique hotels but also among 4 and 5 star hotels. The romantic and Victorian inspired rooms are unique and excellent. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is sumptuous and great. We had our wedding here and during the numerous visits before the wedding for planning and preparation the staff were always attentive and prompt to our needs. Carl and Irene catered to our needs before, during and after the wedding with precision. On the day of the wedding we had a little situation with the wedding gown, the mannequin we rented was too small and it couldn't hold up as the gown was too heavy. One of the Front Office staff, Ryan, had the initiative to think of a speaker stand they had that might be able to do the trick. Thankfully the speaker stand held up and we were able to photograph the wedding gown. We stayed here for two nights and we would have extended for a couple more if not for post wedding plans we had in place for the family and friends who flew in for the wedding. The initiative and excitement and passion by Carl, Irene and Ryan were exhibited by just about every staff at the hotel from the security, bellmen, waiters, housekeeping, engineering, front office, F&B Manager & Executive Chef. The owners even lent us this magnificent and beautiful church kneeler that we used for the wedding. We frequently stay for a night or two at hotels and serviced residences in Makati and Hotel Celeste has the best staff. It maybe small but it packs quite a punch. You have got to experience this Victorian themed hotel to be able to savor what it has to offer.

We stayed here for our last night in the Philippines, we chose this hotel because of the photos and it's location. The checkin was efficient and friendly, the porters were very attentive and even came to greet us from our car with large umbrellas as it was raining when we arrived. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the bed was large and comfy and had wonderful bedding. The bathroom was equally impressive with L'Occitane bath products. The hotel is conveniently located just a short walk to the major shopping malls and greenbelt shopping strip.
The only thing that I would fault with this hotel is the cigarette smell that hits you as soon as you enter the room (we are non-smokers), my mum who is a smoker didn't even notice it. We got used to the smell so we didn't ask to be moved to another room but the hotel should have sprayed the room with odour removing air freshener spray when cleaning the room. The hotel is non-smoking, it's a pity that there are other travellers with complete disregard for rules or comfort of others.

I found myself very disappointed with a large hotel nearby and moved to this.
Rooms are just as good as the far more expensive hotel nearby and service is far better.

The staff are helpful and humourous. Very pleasant and give a real feeling of a comfortable bolthole from the city.

Very helpful and good-natured. Reception staff went to a lot of trouble to assist us.



Close to the Greenbelt /Ayala Malls, it's location is excellent. This is an area of town that you'll feel at ease.

The restaurant food is high quality well cooked and well presented. Attentive service - s attentive it may have been annoying except for the very pleasant staff.

A real gem in this area. Use it for business or leisure; it caters for both with style and efficiency.
