Upon arrival at the hotel, we went straight to the reception area to check-in. We were hospitably welcomed by the hotel staff and greeted us with a warm smile. Their newly renovated lobby is quite impressive. It is spacious, well-lit, and very neat. It also has huge and spacious sitting areas were guests can lounge while checking-in or checking-out. I loved it!

Since we already have a reservation, we just gave our name and were asked for an identification card. Checking-in was fast and efficient, it only took us about 5 minutes and we're done. We were then handed the electronic access key cards to our room and were ushered to the room by their friendly staff.

Deluxe Room


The most striking aspect that I love about City Garden Suites Manila is that it offer guests a "feel-like-home ambiance". The room that was given to us is truly awesome. I was at awe when I saw how lovely and organized it is. It is a well-appointed Deluxe Room that is minimally decorated and not cluttered. Everything is so well-organized!

It has one double bed and one single bed that are both soft and comfy. The beds were joined to one side by a tiny bed table with a telephone and an alarm clock, it has fresh clean white sheets, huge fluffy pillows and blankets that compliment it. The bed really feels comfortable as I tried it. It smells fresh and clean! This deluxe room is spacious enough to comfortably fit (2) two adults, or a small family with one kid.

I was also quite impressed by some of the much needed amenities equipped inside the room such as cable-ready flat screen LED television, a personal refrigerator, an electronic safe, coffee & tea making sets, luggage rack, a cabinet and a spacious work desk. The room has an individually-controlled air-conditioning unit, so adjusting it to your preferred temperature is not a problem. WIFI connectivity is also available inside the room, and it's for FREE!

As I sneaked into the toilet and bath, I was also impressed! For me, it is very important to have a toilet and bath that is clean and well-organized. The hotel did not disappoint. From the sink to the water closet, to the shower area with bathtub and hot & cold shower, everything were clean and well-maintained. Toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, vanity and dental care kits were also provided. The body and hand towels all smell fresh! Everything we need are here! Awesome! I couldn't ask for more!
