Christmas 2016; Copacabana Apartment Hotel Review

If you have been a reader for the past years, it has been a tradition in my small family that we get to celebrate holidays outside our home. That way, we inhale a different ambiance during the holidays and a practice eversince my eldest was born. 

Last Christmas 2016, my mom, my siblings and nephews got to celebrate with us last Christmas so I booked a hotel within Metro Manila. Honestly, I have been eyeing this one for quite sometime because it is near SM Moa where we can watch fireworks display but unfortunately, it is always fully booked during New Year's eve. So instead of waiting for New Year's eve, I booked it on Christmas. 

For hassle free booking, I book our hotels at Agoda site and get discounts as well as rebates for our next booking. I booked a two bedroom apartment hotel, without breakfast. I wouldn't mind not having breakfast included in our hotel because my kids always wake up late and we always miss breakfast offered by hotels! 

The apartment hotel has perfect location since it is near the airport and most of the big shopping malls. If you are visiting Manila, this is a good choice for you and your family. The building is quite old but I must say they were able to maintain its interiors. Their bathrooms has new and clean tiles, their cabinets under the sink are newly painted as well without a trace of any water leak to it. I was quite impressed really. 

The hospitality of their hotel staff is excellent and they are also quite strict when it comes to implementation of rules (ie number of persons allowed per room and swimming outfit). 

The two bedroom we got was actually enough for 5 adults and 5 kids in it. It has a total of three rooms--one Master's, second one has two single beds and third room is Maid's room with a double sized bed. It has two bathrooms, one bathroom with hot and cold shower which is not bad at all. It has a big living room, dining area and kitchen area all complete with cooking and eating utensils. All you have to bring is food and the best thing is, no extra fee! 

They also have parking space which is at the back of the hotel but I am not sure how many cars can it accommodate. 

The only downside to it is that, because it is in EDSA, you can hear the sound of the cars and the what nots. Also, the pool is not as baby friendly and looks old as well. Honestly, my feet hurts walking around near the pool because of the extremely rough flooring as well as in the pool. 

Overall, I would still recommend this apartment hotel for the above reasons. But if you are to use their pool, I strongly suggest otherwise. Also, they do not offer free wifi but if you want, they charge wifi per hour and pretty hefty IMO.
