Accommodation In Makati
Five from five
Known for being one of the Philippines' most upmarket cities, there's little to no shock at finding a collection of staggering 5-star hotels that blindside you with their services and added touches of luxury. In the heart of Makati City, The Peninsula carries its proud and legendary status with grand architecture and a style that allows you to relax from arrival to departure.
With plenty of large shopping malls selling designer and boutique brands, Makati is a great place to splurge. The same attitude can be adopted when choosing a hotel. The Makati Shangri-La, Fairmont, Raffles and the New World Makati Hotel all exceed expectations and leave guests wishing they could stay for longer.
Park your keister
Makati may first appear as a quilt of various skyscrapers and metallic landmarks, but it's possible to find slices of green within the city. The Ayala Triangle Park is one of the city's better greenscapes, made up of colourful gardens and those types of trees that promote a monastery-esque peace throughout the area.
Scattered around the park are various hotels, shops and restaurants, making this a very convenient area to stay. This includes the Somerset Olympia Makati, where you can revel in stylish apartments complete with kitchens and dining areas. When you've finished enjoying your sumptuous accommodation, you might want to wander down to Triangle Park to simply kick back on the grass.
Affordable living in Makati
Checking yourself into one of Makati's budget-friendly hotels will potentially mean saving a few dollars that are better spent on the various attractions around town. You don't want to miss out on the Yuchengco Museum or the numerous shopping opportunities that are presented throughout the city.
If you're not too fussy and more inclined to spend money of food, drinks or souvenirs, you may want to stay at the Tune Hotel, Franchise One Hotel or the Charter House. You'll be able to enjoy comfortable lodgings without suffering an excessive bill.
