The experience we had staying at Aruga Rockwell was beyond exceptional. From check in to check out, the entire staff handled our stay in the most efficient and professional manner. After a long flight and late check in, Front Desk arranged to have food delivered to us. During our stay, the staff met all our needs and requests promptly. Food options were expansive as we were able to order food from a variety of restaurants at Power Plant Mall. Our food concierge made sure that our food was always delivered per our request. Our room was very clean and adequately supplied with all the toiletries. Bottled water was provided without limit and at no extra charge. The staff truly made our quarantine stay pleasant.

Hotel's Favorite
We have stayed at The Aruga several times when in Manila, the staff are always very kind, polite and helpful. It has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable The apartments are clean, spacious and comfortable, the breakfast menu is excellent and the location is ideal for shopping in The Powerplant opposite , there are also plenty of good restaurants nearby. Sadly this year we had to cut our visit to The Philipinnes short due to the Coronavirus, but we will return again hopefully next year Keep up the good work Aruga and stay safe

All the staffs are very friendly and accommodating. Always very helpful when you needed them. Their service very personalized. Their housekeeping Christopher and Vince were very helpful. Another staff (forgot his name), does my fruit buying. Never delayed. Their rooms were very clean as we checked in. Since my flight arrived early in the morning, you can straight away check in. Unlike most hotel policy, check in time is 3:00 pm, leaving the visitors forced to book a day before. The rate is very reasonable and competitive. Aruga made our quarantine stay very pleasant. The surroundings are quiet. You can nurse jet lag easily. I strongly recommend Aruga …

I stayed at Aruga for the mandatory 5 day quarantine upon arriving in the Philippines in January 2022. The hotel has exceeded my expectations in most areas: - the professionalism and warmth of the staff - the cleanliness and comfort of the apartment style room that includes a balcony (for 1 bedroom suite), kitchen and washing machine - the wide selection of food from Rockwell Club and Pancake House. The hotel can also help you buy almost anything from the Powerplant Mall This all helped make a quarantine stay feel almost like a vacation!

This is the second time that we stayed in Aruga and we chose to stay here again because I knew (based on our first stay) that their rooms are clean, well maintained and the amenities inside are up to date. We even had a surprise goodies from them for the New Year’s Eve celebration 😊. The staff are great too! Very welcoming, courteous, attentive and friendly. They really lived up to their name “Aruga” which means “care” in English. They will really take care of you and your needs. I highly recommend them.👌🏼
