Please do and if you could, start a thread so others may gain the knowledge in the future.

@  ₱20 Bill : (20 June 2018 - 03:25 AM)

Thanks, @statusquo @bill44ca @hey you. Looks like a second trip to SM may be unavoidable. Will report back if I learn differently.

@  hey you : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

i live in the province dont check anything in never had a problem maybe because they know me on sight

@  statusquo : (19 June 2018 - 11:47 PM)

@bill44ca you are correct. I said size is a concern but they might put it off to the side and that is the only place I know of in SM that does this. Never know until u ask. @hey you not a bad idea but cumbersome cheers!

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 09:13 PM)

SM grocery will not let you in with bags/packages. Purses only no backpacks. My girl had a very small backpack and they made her check it. This guy was talking about luggage.

@  hey you : (19 June 2018 - 03:37 PM)

sm problem simple dont check your bags if they think your stealing let security stop you at the door on your way out

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 05:17 AM)

@p20bill if you take the Southern Cross bus they drop you off at your hotel

The Royal Bellagio hotel, Is located on P.Burgos Street in the Makati district of Manila.


Im guessing its around a 20-25 minute ride from the airport, but I wouldn't know that, as it took over 1 hour and 45 min for me to get there, as I got stuck in the Chinese New Year traffic slowly moving through he city.


Entrance to the hotel is actually located on the 1st floor, so you have to enter the Cubana café, and take the lift up. There is always someone operating the lift, I suppose so no hookers/unwanted guests get up to the rooms. At the end of the day, it is your usual bog standard hotel, receptionists that don't really have any time or patience to deal with you, and just go through he motions to get rid of you as soon as possible.


The room itself (Rm 4001 in these photos) was ok, a fair sized room, old style TV but with 100's of channels, all the usual movie channels and everything else. Wifi was a bit of a mission to get to work, and involved 3 trips to reception to get the girl to re-boot the system, but eventually, when it did work, it worked ok.


Apparently has a good Tex-mex(style??) restaurant on the 1st floor, but I never got to try it, but did try the floor downstairs in the Cubana cafe;, and it wasn't to bad actually.


I was warned ( by another member on here) that it would take some time to check out, and that rumour was true. Tried to check out, 2 girls behind the counter, one on her phone texting or surfing, and another on facebook on her laptop. After getting their attention, it took over 12 mins just for them to look in the room and say everything ok, I can go. Not sure would really use this hotel again. Not because of the room or hotel, but its damn expensive on this street for girls(3900 peso barfine, and 4000 for the girl. 390 peso for a ladydrink. Well expensive compared to the only other place in the Phlippines that ive been to, Angeles City).


They operate a private taxi to the airport cost for that is 800 peso. The Bell boy manage to get me a taxi off the street, and with meter used to Terminal 2, cost was only 148 peso. Very cheap and reasonable I thought.


The cost for one night was £35, booked through Booking.com. No breakfast included.


The entrance way......

There is also a good café underneath the hotel on the ground floor, called the Cubana café. Their band is also pretty good too!!..............

good report firth..

 

I stayed at the Durban hotel for 3 days, side street right off of Burgos..nice and clean but a strange layout with only 3 rooms that had windows..they were able to change me to a window room the next day cause I felt like I was in a coffin in the first room..

only 40 usd so you get what you pay for..

the TV in your room cracked me up..ya don't see those in to many hotels these days..

 

I had many girls running up to me asking " sir massage"..ended up choosing 3, one each day and all were very nice and spent the night..you just have to be street savvy and know the ropes..fuk the bars, total rip-off..

love the sign..

you have be a total idiot to walk around with a wallet and credit card..only keep pocket change..keep everything in hotel safe..

I don't own a cellphone or have jewelry..no problem..

always use a rubber..

I stayed a couple of times for 4 days, on the last time checking out they checked the room and said I had used a packet of cigarettes about 120peso. told them me and the gf don't smoke, but they would not believe me that I hadn't taken them, no manager as usual available to speak to, so after about 10 minutes of argueing with them and I did call the girl a fcukin useless etc, I didn't care see would not believe me so I tore into her, to the point she threatened to call the police, but it did make the payment of 120peso feel better.

Typical filapino business attitude, they lose a customer spending 10,000peso a month for 120 peso.

 

 

The rooms are ok, but the lift is so small you sometimes have to wait for it 2nd/3rd time because its full when going down

The best thing you can do when this kind of thing happens is write a review of them on TripAdvisor. hotels dread nothing more than bad reviews on TripAdvisor because it seriously damages their reputation and customers book elsewhere if they see several guests have had problems there.

I stayed for a night at both the Durban and bellagio over the past week and can only say good things about them..... Stayed for a night at the bellagio when landing from Australia, no booking superior room for 2500 with free breakfast at the filling station, room was clean, Internet great and no problems with the staff, even a free newspaper in the morning..... Check out took maybe 10 minutes while they checked out just how much I or should I say the girl with me had taken from the mini bar! All in all a good experience..... You might wanna check out all the bars before spending so much on LD and bf as they're much cheaper elsewhere than the bars immediately around the bellagio
Durban hotel I always enjoy, very modern looking and comfy beds, no elevators but only 4 floors, nice showers..... No windows as mentioned before but what do you really wanna look at, the back of another building? Attentive staff and good food down stairs, 1900 pesos here but don't get the extras I got at bellagio and no mini bar, there is a fridge you can fill yourself.
I would definitely recommend both hotels if you're staying around the area

Good info for me as I'm staying at the Royal Bellagio this August. I hope my experience is better than the OP!

 

Thanks for the tips about going further away from the immediate hotel area Puki Monster. I was planning to in any case, but still...

Just stayed there 3 nights about 2 weeks ago. 

Had no problems except for the internet. When they did get it on it worked great.

No need to put much in the fridge even. The 7 11 is right next door.

Do it sounds like Royal Belagio is not girl-friendly. Is that correct?

I used to love this place, stayed there for all my trips. but on my recent trip they spoiled it for me.

The girl on the front desk told one of the regular girls I "knew"  about the girls coming over to my room and at what times.

I have stayed here once and never will again

 

Has a nightclub/bar downstairs called Bronx, bass is ridiculously high and found it hard to sleep on off days such as Monday to Wednesday night

 

Food is great though

 

Would rather stay at Hotel Durban
