HOTEL REVIEW: Y2 Residence Hotel - Makati

Image may contain: one or more people, pool and outdoor

Looking for an affordable yet a nice place to stay in Makati City? Check this hotel I found in the city.



Located in the middle of urbanized Brgy. Poblacion, Y2 Residence Hotel is one of the best options when you are planning to stay in Makati. Just a few minutes away from NAIA (Philippine's prime airport), it's very convenient to book a stay in the hotel since you can access nearby attractions in the metro.

WHAT'S INSIDE

Image may contain: screen and indoor
We booked a two-bedroom unit for one night stay. We traveled via Grab from Taguig City. It only took us roughly 30 minutes although we passed a traffic jam along C5 Northbound (Market-Market). Someone already checked in when we get there so we just head straight the lobby and elevator to get to our unit.

SECURITY
I noticed that when we get in to the elevator, the security electronic badge isn't working (we weren't even fetched by our relatives who already inside our unit). Although there are security guards and other staff roaming the hotel and CCTVs, anyone can actually get inside the hotel.

On the good side, each rooms are locked everytime they are closed and you have to tap their card to get in. I feel secure with that at least.

THE UNIT

Image may contain: 1 person, phoneDiscover Zen-like tranquility and a blissfully warm and inviting feeling in any Y2 Residence Hotel room, where dramatic black-and-white touches, hand-painted walls, and vivid artworks are the norm, whether it’s studio-type for the individual traveler or the one- or two-bedroom unit for a family or a large group. And while you may have left the frantic pace of the city outside, you can stay connected inside the hotel through social media, watch your favorite show, or simply listen to your playlist as you relax.

My review:

  • Cleanliness is very important. I give it two thumbs up for the neat rooms we witness upon our entrance through the doorstep.
  • The aircondition is very good.
  • The beds are soft and clean.
  • I also love the design and lighting.
  • WiFi is available. Password is given upon check in.
  • There's a telephone where you can use to make a call in and out the hotel.
  • There's also a handy phone that is connected

THE ROOFDECK

This is one of the amenities you can enjoy when you stay here. This rooftop offers a 360-degree view of Makati and nearby cities such as Taguig (BGC skyline) and Mandaluyong. Don't forget to take a sunset shot when you get there!

Both are not that wide but you can still enjoy a short swimming strokes. We went there twice and there are only a few people who use it. Just made it perfect for my photo-ops!

I noticed the warmness (not really hot and not that cold) of the waters. So I chilled and relaxed a bit just enjoying the good day by the pool.

You may also want to take some pictures with there benches and nice wall draft. Very Instagrammy! See mine on www.instagram.com/morefunwithjuan
