A cozy second home in Makati

When I was in the big city last week for WordCamp Philippines 2009, my organizing team and I stayed at a delightful little hotel in Makati, Jupiter Suites. Honestly, I had never heard of it before (even though my mother’s family hails from Bel-Air Village in Makati), but I’m certainly glad I know about them now!

Situated right smack in the center of things in the country’s premier financial district, Jupiter Suites will be appreciated by businessmen and transients as it is surrounded by all kinds of food establishments (from fast-food joints to the more high-end restaurants), a convenience store, a bookstore, a pharmacy, and more! Glorietta and Greenbelt are a short hop away, and so are parks and churches.

Jupiter Suites, formerly known as the Jupiter Arms Hotel, is not a big, posh property; in fact, it’s only three floors, with less than 20 rooms, in my estimation. However, their accommodation facilities are good, the rooms are spacious, and the place is well-maintained. What I appreciated the most — apart from its strategic location — is their brand of customer service. During our whole stay, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and several times went out of their way to make our stay in Makati more pleasant. We were there for a major international bloggers’ event as organizers, so, as much as it was exciting for us, it was also quite stressful. Staying at Jupiter Suites definitely helped ease the transition.

One more thing that made my stay in Makati productive was their free Internet service. All rooms are equipped with LAN cables for you to hook up your laptop to, and the bandwidth was impressive during my entire stay. I was able to keep up with my Web-based activities, thanks to Jupiter Suites’ free & fast Internet connectivity. (I just wish they provided wifi access instead, so I could’ve moved around the room with my iPod touch… but then again, the LAN connection was pretty decent.)

Next time I find myself in the nation’s capital, it’s going to be Jupiter Suites for me!

They are located on 102 Jupiter Street (near the corner of Makati Avenue), Bel-Air, Makati City. Their landline number is +63(2)890-5050. Click here to jump to their website.
