Months ago I received this email from Jupiter Suite management inviting me to visit the place for an overnight accommodation stay for a hotel review. Since I am a bit far from Makati the area of the hotel, I did not commit right away. When I saw the chance and a perfect date we confirmed the stay.
With our overnight backpack we traveled by bus on a Saturday morning for a 3 hour trip to Manila, just in time for the check-in time around 2pm... with a side light of stopping by Tivoli Gardens to visit Ate Amy. Headed to the mall for some pampering and proceeded to Jupiter Suites.
I will walk you through photos of the hotel; the facade, reception area, the stairs and the room we stayed for the night.
facade/ front door of Jupiter Suites
left side facing Jupiter Suites Hotel
below the pizza house
The hallway leading to the front desk area, after entering the main door.
The inside of the building smells so nice! A plus point for me in a hotel.
The inside of the hotel is not that big, and by the time we reached the hotel a guest couple with a child was in the reception area waiting for their room. It was not a busy day that day.
I asked Ate Amy (thedesignatedtraveller) for this picture while Mr. Henry contacts the staff for the room we will be staying.
After I field up the guest form the room key was handed to me, Mr.Henry mentioned to me the breakfast is available on the 2nd floor starting at 6:30 am the following day also the Wi-fi password was given to us. And, directed us on the elevator just behind us in the photo.
Time for some photo snaps of the hotel lobby.
View from the front desk facing the main door entrance. On the right side was the elevator that can accommodate up to 5 people. The hotel is a 4-story building but the elevator can only bring you up to the 3rd floor. Take the next plight up through the stairs.
If you wish to take the stairs it is just beside the elevator side.
Newspapers, magazines and restaurants and fast-food fliers were available too.
While we wait for our room we stayed and took a snap at the lounge area, below the stairs going up to the rooms.
The room that was given to us was located at the 4th floor, on the other side of the building.
I'm surprised how huge and spacious the room that was given to us for the night.
This one is the family suite room. This room can accommodate four and it is perfect for barkada traveler or a family of four.
The room lighting was cozy and homey.
A 32 in television with cable, an extra dresser which we placed our backpacks can be found inside the room.
Also, a mini-ref below a built-in cabinet drawer which is located on the right side is available. No mini-bar or any supplies inside the ref.
Clean sheets, comfy mattress and it was properly fixed for the next guest to enjoy. A telephone with the beside table with lamp divides the two double-queen size beds.
The bed runner, tube pillow cover and curtains had this matchy-matchy design which complements with the wood head board and white colored concrete walls. This room is equipped with wi-fi access too, no worries for guests who needs to go online 24/7, giving the wi-fi speed a thumbs-up!
Double curtain window, a window type air condition unit, a working desk with drawer, some printed guidelines for tourist that can come handy, a lamp, a wall mirror, trash can, a comfy chair and the hair blow dried can be found in the far end of the room upon entering.
Let's go to the one of the most important part of a hotel room... the bath and comfort room.
The bathroom is huge!
The towels are not that new but it smells nice.
They have hot and cold lavatory faucet and in shower.
Thought there were some issues I had with the bathroom like there's no bidet faucet and the shower holder lost a screw that made the shower holder unsturdy when it was in use.
The things the hotel management can work on for some improvements.
We left the hotel to grab some late afternoon lunch and we took the stairs on our way down.
The hotel is situated where everything is accessible. From transportation of public and private vehicles, to fast food chains, malls and even a jazz club just a few steps away from Jupiter Suites in which we spend the night away and got back to our room around 1am.
The next morning, we got up before 7am to get breakfast which was included in the room package.
Just before we left our room, a couple set of local newspapers greeted us in front of our doorstep which we brought along.
We went to the 2nd floor where the kitchen cafeteria was located.
A plated breakfast of garlic rice, eggs and coffee in a combination of bacon and sardines were our choices.
The breakfast was tummy-filling. It will serves you well before you head outside for another busy business day.
To sum up our Jupiter Suites hotel stay. After a busy and tiring day we had the hours we stayed inside our room was relaxing. I had a good 6 hours of sleep away from my house, which we all look for and want in a hotel room.
The staff and security are nice and friendly.
Though, the building of the hotel is not that new and amenities are limited this one can be included in the list if you are looking for a place to stay consider Jupiter Suites, the budget hotel in Makati!
