Last May 26, 2010 was my second time to visit Manila. If memory serves me well, the last time I was there was 16 years ago. I still can remember the places the first time me and my family visited Manila. We went to Manila Zoo and Landmark and even passed by the Skyway. My family and I stayed at my aunt’s house in Cavite that time.
Now, 16 years later I finally set foot for the second time in Manila, but this time I’m not with my family but with my friend Jorich and six other netizens. We spent our 2 days, 1 night at Jupiter Suites Hotel in Makati City Deluxe Suite. We were actually surprised because it's a large room with two beds, a table for three, ref, a closet, a cable television and T&B and it’s only for P 3,580 per night.
What I like about the hotel is that it’s just a few minutes drive away from government buildings, schools, parks, etc. and most of all a Makati hotel with free internet. Just don’t hesitate to ask the person assigned at the front desk about their free internet. Furthermore, their personnel’s are very accommodating and never fail to flaunt their smiles, especially the guard who never get tired of flashing that smile and opening the door of the van and the hotel for us. I know it’s a tough job but seeing that smile made me think that he’s enjoying his job.
I also love their well lit hallways. Unlike other hotels that give you goosebumps while walking through their hallway on your way to your room.
What I also like about the Jupiter Suites Hotel is their Hot and Cold shower for I was kinda bummed at first because I thought there was no water, but heck I don’t know how to turn that faucet on not until Jorich taught me. It was an embarrassing moment for me, but no one’s more embarrassed than Jorich who taught me how to turn on the faucet. He himself doesn’t know how to turn on the shower. All he did is crouched and took a bath under the faucet. Hahaha.
Well, I guess the next time I’ll visit MNL and plans to have a budget travel in Makati City I will book myself a room at Jupiter Suites Hotel.
