Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue and a must do in Poblacion, Philippines

Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue, the second Metro Manila hotel of Thailand-based Hop Inn Hotel, is finally open. This means budget-conscious business travelers are right next door to the country’s premier Central Business District. Meanwhile, budget-conscious leisure travelers are a few hops away from experiencing the best dining, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife of Makati City. And, most importantly, Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue guests can readily explore Poblacion which is the Philippines’ budding arts and gastronomic hub.

 

 

Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue

I, together with other bloggers, recently had the opportunity to sleep at Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue for one night.

Just in case you’re looking for Lloyd as you read this post, he couldn’t join because he was busy with work. Our usual chaperone (my mom) was also out of town. Thus, it is all the more a reason for him not to sleep over.

 

Moving on, check-in to Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue was a breeze and hassle-free. Their welcoming professional staff was quick to respond.

I learned that the check-in counter is open 24 hours to ensure that travelers have an enjoyable and worry-free stay.

With a total of 144 air-conditioned rooms and ten floors, Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue has two elevators.

The aforementioned elevators can only be accessed with a secure key card access. This assures me that only registered guests and their staff are the only ones who can use the elevators. Additionally, knowing that the hotel has around-the-clock security and CCTV operations made me feel much safer.

 

Room Access

Similar to the elevator, registered guests can only enter their room using the hotel key card issued to them.

Upon entering the room, I unconsciously inserted my hotel key card in the wall slot for the electricity to work.

With an area of 16 s.q.m., the minimalist white and light blue-colored room has more than enough space to accommodate two persons.

Crisp white sheets, soft pillows, and a comforter make the bed truly inviting.

I hurriedly went to the window to check the view as I stay on the seventh floor. The cityscape view may not be stunning but I still find it nice that I have such view.

Lounging on the bed, an LCD/ Plasma screen TV is mounted on the wall for entertainment.

The room doesn’t have an in-room cabinet but it gives ample space for clothes, bags, and even luggage. It also has a desk that is great for those who may need to work.

Don’t forget to use the hotel’s door hanger.

 

Bathroom
Bathroom

Although the bathroom photos that I took look cramp, Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue’s bathrooms are actually spacious. Three people can easily do bathroom activities together at a time. Due to its space, I honestly like their bathroom better than the other budget hotel brand I recently stayed at.

The bathroom also has a shower with water heater, hair dryer, and bidet aside from the usual toilet, sink, and trash can.

Toiletries aren’t free at this hotel. However, it can be bought for cheap prices. A toothbrush, for instance, just costs PHP 30 (or 0.59 USD).

What I also noticed about their bathroom is its window is open but has a screen. When you’re about to sleep, make sure to close the bathroom door to reduce city noise.

 

Other Room Amenities
In Room Amenities

The room has a safety box for important belongings. I just think they will need to add instructions for those who don’t know how to operate it.

Of course, part of the hotel’s amenity is FREE WiFi because it is very important for travelers.

Those who live in Metro Manila may also find staying in Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue to be convenient with its free secured parking.

 

Breakfast is not included.
Breakfast

The hotel doesn’t offer breakfast yet as their cafe is still under construction. However, a typical Filipino breakfast can be delivered from Rufo’s Famous Tapa. What I had for breakfast is Rufo’s Tocino, PHP 123 (or USD 2.4).

 

Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue Experience

While working in the middle of the night, I heard a creaking noise emanating from the other side of the wall. I then pressed my ear on the wall out of curiosity. Lo and behold! There was a loud moaning of a woman and a man grunting. uh oh… I no longer want to think about what they’re doing on the other side.

That is how I discovered that their walls aren’t very soundproof. As I was about to sleep, I could also faintly hear city noise as well. These issues though are quite negligible for exhausted travelers. I still decided to include this information for the sake of those who are particular of sounds.

I found it difficult to leave my bed as I overall enjoyed my stay in Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue. Their spick and span room has all the basic things I may need, ample electric sockets, and a spacious bathroom to boot. Their bed is of good quality and has a nice bedding. Plus, the hotel is very secure and is located in a good area.

For an introductory rate of PHP 1500 net (USD 30) per room per night, I highly recommend travelers with companion/s to choose Hop Inn Hotel Makati over a hostel. Not only is it more affordable but it offers better comfort, privacy, and security.

Finally, non-fussy business and leisure travelers are sure to get their money’s worth at Hop Inn Hotel Makati Avenue.

  1. Idk about others but I find that info about the creaking sound at night funny! I mean, didn’t the hotel people check if their walls were thick enough to separate the rooms pretty well so as not to hear anything in between rooms. It’s really affordable to check in this hotel. Just convenient for people, who work away from the metro, who need to attend meetings in the city. The bed really looks enticing to sleep on! I may not just leave that bed too if I’m there. 😛

  2. Nice, for around Php 2,000/room/night with toiletries and food (US$40) [roughly] then you get a decent plus spacious room in Makati, that’s a pretty good deal if you ask me. It’s perfect for business travellers on a budget. It would appeal to travellers who would want to have a staycation too, however, do they have a pool or fitness area? Btw, I also find the creaking sound annoying too.

  3. It seems like a pretty decent hotel.It’s nice if the hotel can provide the breakfast.Hope they will provide this facility soon.
    I am not particular about those small noises coming from outside the hotel rooms.But,when I check hotel reviews I always see comments about noise from other travelers.Anyway,these days we travel with our kid who is really excited to stay in hotels.At the time we step into any hotel,he starts laughing shouting and sharing all his excitement freely.So,we are always worry about our noise thinking we are disturbing others.. 🙂 🙂

  4. I like the desk’s position near the window. Very conducive to work and the natural light is readily available.

    I am quite particular re total silence when in a hotel plus the buffet, too. I guess most as well . I hope Hop inn will look more into these details.

  5. The hotel looks minimalist for me. Too much that I feel there’s no contrast even just a little. The only one that caught my attention on the photo is the working desk on the window. Lakas maksenti. I hope they put even just a little pop of something like a good painting or the curtain. Something that’s eye-catching and that won’t hurt their concept.

  6. Wow this is a really nice place for such a location and for a truly affordable price. I don’t really care a lot about the design of the hotel as long as the bed is comfortable. 😀 Those thin walls worry me a bit but I usually get so tired that nothing can break my sleep. Although I usually skip breakfast it makes me happy to hear that they can provide it, if I change my mind. Altogether, this hotel is a good enoug for my taste and needs.

  7. The hotel looks good for its price! 1500 for that kind of room?!! I think its sulit. I love the minimalist theme and the table overlooking the city. And I would mind the noise especially from the adjacent rooms as long as I can only hear it when I put my ears on the wall. 🙂

  8. The bed looks very big even if the room is not so large. It’s nice that it has a window through, as I don’t like hotels with no view at all, just walls. The card access only makes it very safe in my opinion. I do like elevators that only go if you swipe your card, this means that non guests can’t go up to the rooms.

  9. I love that they offer free wifi + free parking. That’s a must for travellers and bloggers alike. Since you mentioned that the check in counter is open 24hours, what’s their check out time? Or is it like other hostels where you pay 1,500 for 24hours stay?

    Reply
    • Oh… right! I forgot to include the check in and check out time. Their check-in time and check out time is the same as usual Philippine hotels. They’re just open for 24 hours since they recognize that they’re accommodating travelers from around the world who may check in around dawn because of their flight. Also, since Poblacion is just near, a lot of foreign guests may return to the hotel late. So, at least, they can accommodate their needs as well.

  10. I really love the name.. it’s very catchy! I also love the blue scheme not just because blue is my favorite color but because it makes the room look so relaxing and comforting. The place and the space reminds me of rooms in Go Hotels, small yet neat and complete with all the amenities you need. 1500 is absolutely a great deal huh.. considering all these features (with free parking) , this is really ideal for travelers! I personally love the working area where you are sitting in front of that window.
    hahaha I don’t know how will I response with those moaning sound from the other room either.. i might just put my headset on and enjoy some music lols

  11. Good for families, not so good for honeymooners who want a budget staycation. LOL nakakaloka yung soundproofing nila hahahaha damn I’m here in a shop buying cpu and I suddenly burst out laughing while reading THAT part of your review hahahaha LOL

    Anyways the bed looks inviting, i like the minimalist vibe going on and I would love to stay here sometime soon… with my family and not just my hubby. HAHAHAHA

  12. Oh nice! Rooms in Makati are often pricey, so it’s good to have an alternative like this and at a cheap price too. I love my peace and quiet though, so if I do plan on staying here, I *might* have to ask the front desk if I’m beside couples to avoid hearing what you did (though that doesn’t always happen I assume). Love the table by the window! Perfect for flatlay shoots and doing a little lettering work while I stay. At least there’s a decent place for travelers to rest without spending too much. 🙂

  13. Looks airy and cozy! For the price I think it would be a great option for an overnight stay if it’s for work or maybe when you just need a place to stay. I note the bare essentials and no toiletries so I guess that’s a contributing factor for it being more affordable. I’ve never stayed in a hotel by myself. I’d get creeped out too!
