Luxuriate in Alcoves's 4BDR Penthouse unit. Relax in the living room with the provided 50 inch TV with cable TV access while surfing the internet over the high speed WIFI.
The apartment is composed of 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are loft type (you will need to climb stairs - don't worry though, it's an easy climb of exactly 10 steps). There are a total of 3 queen sized beds, 2 twin beds (in bunk bed format) and a sofa bed.
There's a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need for cooking (and eating!).
Finally there are 2 full bathrooms (toilet and shower) as well as a 1/2 bath (toilet only).
Good for walking The apartment is centrally located in the heart of Makati. A major shopping centre Greenbelt-Glorietta is less than a minutes walk away while Ayala Avenue, the Philippiness equivalent of Wall Street, is a 5 minute walk away. Major Banks such as HSBC and Citibank are a 5 and 10 min. walk away, respectively. Ayala Museum is less than a 5 minute walk away. For your food needs, there is a 24 hour convenience store located in the building, while a regular supermarket is less than a 10 minute walk away.
Great for getting a car or mass transport- Given the apartments central, location hailing a cab is easy while the nearest Mass Transit Station (MRT- Ayala Avenue Station) is around a 15 minute walk away.
Great as a base for visiting other sites in Manila- Makati lies roughly in the middle of all the action in Manila. Historic Intramuros (the walled city of the Spaniards) and Chinatown are around 30-45 minutes by car. Ermita / Malate (a cultural and artistic centre for centuries) is around 30 minutes away by car. Newly minted shopping and entertainment zone, Fort Bonifacio, is around 15 minutes away by car. The International Airport is around 30-40 minutes away by car. (As you can tell from the travel times, Makati is close to everything. What delays most car trips is the inevitable traffic.)
Q: I am new to the Philippines! What is the difference between Makati and Manila?
A: Manila is a hodgepodge of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one of these cities. An apt analogy is that Manila is like New York. New York is made out of different boroughs while Manila is composed of different cities and municipalities. Makati is one such city and would, continuing the analogy, be comparable to New Yorks Manhattan district.
Given the nature of the units surroundings (financial and shopping districts) it is not an exaggeration to say that the area is one of the safest in the entire country. One can walk around at night without any fear of anything untoward happening. Moreover, the building itself has round the clock security with roving security checks.
