Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was first given a very small room (room #202) which is 1 step out of the lift. Then looking into the raw room condition, it was plainly a bed, an old table and a miserably narrow toilet which I don't think you could move around with a structural pillar blocking the way.

The hotel made a modern impression to me. I tried the economy room and the double suite. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. The beds give a good sleeping comfort. The economy room is a bit small, so I changed. The double suite was spacious and furnished in a modern way. Because I only booked one day in advance...

This hotel use to be an just an Inn. Located near an expat area in Makati. The alleys bring you to a variety of food eats. The hotel rooms are quite modern but a tight squeeze, good for couples. Food at the hotels resto is ok quite modern but not there yet. If you want a modern tourist in sock...

The front facade of the hotel gives an impression of a 5 star accomodation. The double bedroom which I booked was clean, modern and airconditioned. Wifi was strong in the room. The toilet and the adjoining bathroom were newly refurbished and clean. The bed was spacious and comfortable. The staff were courteous and helpful. I requested for drinking water and...

Receptionists and doormen were really really kind and helpful. Our room's at the 1st floor, but not noisy. Accommodation's good, clean and nice bathroom. The hotel's quite close to shopping malls, museums, it's quite easy to get to some other main attractions in the city. Wifi works super well.

Hotel Durban was a great hotel in central Makati although they were undergoing renovations when we were there to install a lift. The noise didn't bother us much though as we were out during the day. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We only ate at the hotel one evening although the food was delicious. My only negative is...

It is our policy to do a service recovery for our guests, when there is a shortcoming on our side, and to protect the hotel's best interest at the same time.

Recently stayed again in Durban for almost a week as a solo female traveler. They are a few on going renovations and they now have an elevator. Some rooms still have no windows. But for it's price, service and cleanliness still at a great value. For a female solo traveler this hotel is comfortable, safe and stylish to boot. They...
