Two bedroom 80 square meter unit with 2 ½ bathrooms and complete kitchen. Complimentary use of high speed broadband wifi. A 32 inch flat screen TV with cable rounds out the apartment’s entertainment options. The apartment is cleaned, free of charge, every other day of your stay.
Good for walking – The apartment is centrally located in the heart of Makati. A major shopping centre Greenbelt-Glorietta is less than a minutes walk away while Ayala Avenue, the Philippines’s equivalent of Wall Street, is a 5 minute walk away. Major Banks such as HSBC and Citibank are a 5 and 10 min. walk away, respectively. Ayala Museum is less than a 5 minute walk away. For your food needs, there is a 24 hour convenience store located in the building, while a regular supermarket is less than a 10 minute walk away.
Great for getting a car or mass transport- Given the apartment’s central, location hailing a cab is easy while the nearest Mass Transit Station (MRT- Ayala Avenue Station) is around a 15 minute walk away.
Great as a base for visiting other sites in Manila- Makati lies roughly in the middle of all the action in Manila. Historic Intramuros (the walled city of the Spaniards) and Chinatown are around 30-45 minutes by car. Ermita / Malate (a cultural and artistic centre for centuries) is around 30 minutes away by car. Newly minted shopping and entertainment zone, Fort Bonifacio, is around 15 minutes away by car. The International Airport is around 30-40 minutes away by car. (As you can tell from the travel times, Makati is close to everything. What delays most car trips is the inevitable traffic.)
Q: I am new to the Philippines! What is the difference between Makati and Manila?
A: Manila is a hodgepodge of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one of these cities. An apt analogy is that Manila is like New York. New York is made out of different burrows while Manila is composed of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one such city and would, continuing the analogy, be comparable to New York’s Manhattan district.
Given the nature of the unit’s surroundings (financial and shopping districts) it is not an exaggeration to say that the area is one of the safest in the entire country. One can walk around at night without any fear of anything untoward happening. Moreover, the building itself has round the clock security with roving security checks.
Honest Assessment by Owner:
Frankly, if the unit were a hotel, it would rank only around 3 ½ stars. However, considering the size and amenities of the apartment, coupled with its location, we sincerely believe that a stay with us is excellent value for your money. Some minor annoyances to the unit (this is after all an honest assessment): a) You have a view of Greenbelt and the buildings of Ayala Avenue but these are obstructed views and not much to write home about; b) bathrooms could use more counter-space.
Other available services:
We try to offer our guests the convenience of everything. Some are free and some are for a small fee:
a. City Guide (free): Our suggestions on where to visit in the Philippines as well as local hot spots.
b. Foreign Exchange at competitive rates: So you don’t need to worry about finding a reputable money exchanger or running out of pesos.
c. Advise on other destinations in the PH (Free): Manila is a great jumping off point to other local destinations. Some examples are sunning yourself in world famous Boracay Island, swimming with Whale Sharks in Dunsol, relaxing in the mountain atmosphere of Tagaytay, scuba diving in Batangas, or island hopping in Coron. Wherever you want to go in the Philippines, we can offer advice on where to stay.
d. Keep your bags while you are away (Free): If you do decide to go out of town you don’t want to be lugging all your stuff with you. You can leave your other luggage with us until your return to Manila.
e. Translation Services (Subject to Availability: Not everyone has English as their lingua franca. We offer translators who can communicate in Chinese (Mandarin or Hokkien) and Korean.
f. Event Photography: Let our photographers worry about the pictures so you can focus on enjoying yourself.

My friends and i are very happy to stay here. Host is very accommodating and friendly. The place is clean and near to greenbelt, where it is easy to find foods,shopping and entertainments. There a file showing helpful information around the area. We might be staying here again if we're in manila. Thumbs up Rafael.

Although the unit was a bit dated, it was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Great, great, great location!! You can walk to almost everywhere to shop and dine. The host was very accommodating. He came over to welcome us and stopped before we checked out. We stayed for 9 nights. We will definitely be back.

To the hosts Rafael and Anton: Thank you so much. We so loved the place. We asked for additional cooking pots and they provided the following day. They're easy to contact since they reply immediately. The place is perfect, felt like home but this time in the heart of Makati. We will be staying again.

The place was great and very accessible to anything you might need. It was right in front of Greenbelt and all you had left to do was choose where you want to eat, drink, and shop. The apartment was very homely, clean, spacious, and the only negative was the broken small window that needs to be at least patched so the rain doesn't get in when it's too windy. I would consider booking the place again the next time I'm in the city.

If you want a place where you can chill even if you're on a business trip, seriously consider this 2BR with all the mod cons. For this price, you won't find a hotel room that's as clean, conveniently located and has wifi. I want to make a confession, though; I found that I went home with one adaptor! I promise to return when I'm in that area!

The unit owner assessed this unit as 3 ½ stars in terms of hotel ranking. But I considered the size (huge!) and amenities of the apartment (sweet!) coupled with its location (perfect!), I totally agree that this place is excellent value for your money. Or at the very least, it will exceed most of your expectations. Full review here: http://www.wearesolesisters.com/2012/03/best-place-for-staycation-in-manila.html

Alcovesph was very accomodating during my whole stay in the appartment, we had a mini tour first and showed me how all the appliances work and some important things to do and what not. It was a very good experience, i enjoyed my stay and i was very comfortable with the place, everything you need is in the appartment, they a have complete set of utensils that you could use if you want to cook. They have this amazing television where you can plug in your game consoles or just an usb device if you want to watch your own movie, you can even invite your friends over and they wont charge you extra, that was the most excelent part of it. I invited my friends over and we just had a very great time! No one bothered us during the whole party, eventhough we were so loud, no one complained about the noise. Everything was a breeze also with regards to the payment, and the renting process. Good job! Keep it up! I may visit again soon :-)
