Overall stay was OK, really didn't use all the facilities there, the hotel is starting to show it's age a little, the white hall ways are starting to get a bit scuffed up with all the traffic through the years.
Fifty years ago, the Prince Plaza II must have been an elegant place. Some of that is still evident in skylights, tilework, elevators and an occasional panel. These days, however, the Prince Plaza II is just a big, dowdy, affordably priced hotel in Manila's swankiest sector. A staff member confirmed our guess that the roughly 400 units in the PP II have been condo-ized -- that is, they've been sold to investors; hotel management sees to their rental and maintenance (such as it is). Our room for two nights (#1807) was bright and comfortable. The included breakfast, served in a biggish top floor room, was OK. A rooftop pool was clean and clear. The staff was mostly eager to please.
I booked 1night stay last Dec 12 and Dec 18, 2019 because my work required me to extend long hours. Though, away from home, this hotel managed to make my stay very relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. It isn’t pricey but the accommodation is top notch. Rooms are sparking clean and neat.
First the positives: great location right next to Greenbelt in Makati. Very affordable accommodation considering the central location. Then the negatives: the property is dated and old, and although kept clean, still doesn't look nearly as good as the photos on the booking sites. With 25 floors, the wait for the lift can be quite long, and apparently many units are residential as well. There is an automated message in the lifts that apologises for the long wait. The cable didn't work properly so only a few English-speaking channels were available. I asked several times for this to be fixed but nothing happened during the 4 days I stayed. One morning I was asked what time I wanted cleaning, and by the time I came back from lunch, it still had not been done. If you call…
This is my second time staying here, and have had a great experience both times. The staff are friendly and very responsive. The location is awesome and I think Prince Plaza II is a great value for the money. They also have some different selections on the breakfast buffet every morning, so we really enjoy the breakfast there.
