Being in Metro Manila’s business district, Makati, has it ups and downs. One of the ups is having access to major things that one can ask for, like restaurants, banks, hospitals and stores to name a few. Downside is that things can be a bit more expensive.
Well, if you want to stay in the city for a day or longer, and budget is on top of your considerations in finding the hotel in Makati, then, Hop Inn Hotel might fit the bill.
Hop Inn Hotel is one of the newest hotels in Makati City. With it being on a wallet-friendly side, without compromising comfort and acess to the city.
Located along Makati Avenue, one of the busiest areas in the city, Hop Inn Hotel is just stonethrow’s away from the city’s attractions and business centers.
At Php 1,200 for two persons (around USD 23.50) introductory price, until it October 31, 2017, it is a no-brainer deal if you’re looking for a place to stay in Makati City.
After October 31, Hop Inn Hotel’s regular rate for a standard will be Php 1,500 (weekdays) to Php 1,650 (around USD 30 to 33).
I stayed in a Standard Double Room with queen-sized bed. The room has its own window facing a street in the area.
It also has an LCD TV with cable for local and foreign channels. The room also has a personal safe box. It is also equipped with a remote-controlled split-type aircon.
The room also has WIFI coverage. Access to internet covers the whole hotel.
The room has enough space for two traveles whether going with just backpacks or with luggages.
The bathroom is surprisingly spacious. Honestly, I didn’t consider at first that it will be that type, considering the rate of the hotel. I am guessing the 1/3 of the whole room area is the bathroom.
The bathroom has its own heater for the shower, blowdryer and towels.
It also has a liquid soap dispenser. A big plus for me. 👌
I find the bed really comfortable even for long sleep or movie marathons hahaha.
Also, the space-saver immovable table top by the window is big plus for any guests to use it as a dining area or storage for things. Really simple yet cool thing to have. I even used it for photo with a good natural light thru the window.
Another great thing about Hop Inn Hotel is that aside from it offering budget-friendly room rates, they are also selling bottled drinking water and toiletries at VERY affordable rate. So, if ever you forgot yours, and do not wish to go out of the hotel, they have the basic stuff you need for a fraction of cost.
And of course, with Hop Inn Hotel being along Makati Avenue, you are a few steps away from many selections of restaurants and stores. So, even if Hop Inn Hotel does not have (yet) its own restaurant, you can just walk your way to the numerous local and foreign choices in the area.
If I’d be equating the value and service that got from the rate that Hop Inn Hotel, I say I got more for less.
Hotel Hop Inn, for one, is new, so along its rooms and equipment in it.
On top of that, the rate of the hotel for the place it is located, is a BIG PLUS Factor.
My only concern is that the room doesn’t have a phone line. So whatevet the case may be, I have to go down to the desk to ask something. Not really for local or international calls, but primarily access to the operator or receptionists of the hotel.
But, overall Hop Inn Hotel is definitely a great deal of value for money. Whether you want to stay tucked under the sheets on your whole stay or just use the room for sleeping the night/s and head to business or leisure all day, Hop Inn Hotel is a practical choice if you’re staying in the city and wanting to maximize your money without compromising comfort and accessibility to the Makati and nearby areas.
