“Good for business”

ManuMaudgal New Delhi, India


I stayed for 6 nights, in first week of June 2016 on a business trip.

Why?

Firstly it came recommended by office colleagues who have stayed there in previous years;

Secondly it is just across the road from ADB where I had work and

Thirdly, as a vegetarian I wanted to stay in a service apartment with kitchenette just incase…

The rooms are big with separate spaces for writing desk, sitting area, closet, wash room and the kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with cutlery for two.

However, don’t expect any provisions like sugar/ salt / pepper/ washing liquid etc. If you really intend to cook better bring your own provisions or order these separately.

I however, did not feel the need to do any of this and got the time to spend at the well-equipped gym and the swimming pool.

In terms of location, the hotel is ideally located within 5-10 minutes walking distance of two malls and just across the ADB.

Just 10 minutes from MRT station (Ortigas) as well as the bus station, thus should you wish to catch up on tourist attractions--travel to BFC, Spanish quarters is possible within 1-1.5 hours. Uber cabs are available too.

So all in all a good business hotel, with all amenities, far from tourist zones and yet within reach.

Room Tip: I stayed on 9th floor and traffic noise was negligible, thanks to insulated windows

“Five stars”

josephpalmer Bristol, United Kingdom


The rooms at Oakwood are excellent. Every appliance you could ask for, spacious, modern and comfortable. There are a lot of hotels in the area, but none that I know of provide quite as much. I've stayed twice for 13 and 24 nights and haven't once needed something that wasn't either already there or a quick phone call away.

But what makes Oakwood stand out the most are the staff. Everyone is polite, courteous and helpful. They go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect, right down to details like brushing the tassels of the rug straight. I'd made a request before my second stay to be booked into the same room as my first, which seemed not to be possible, but on arrival I was told that it had been freed up. One of the porters said he recognised me from my stay two years earlier. The reservations officer came to meet with me personally regarding my stay. All touches that made me feel welcomed and valued.

I also had to ask several times for the wifi router to be rebooted as my phone was having issues, an awkward request but one that was handled excellently and the problems were resolved in minutes, even late on Christmas night. Thanks especially to Omar, who had to deal with me most of the times.

I really can't recommend Oakwood enough. I've tried others in the area but will always come back to Oakwood.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. The views are mostly blocked by other offices, but it's still nice

“Excellent Hotel - Large rooms, super gym and lovely staff”

GreenYellow Copenhagen, Denmark


The room i stayed in on the 20th floor was big and tastefully furnished. It was actually a studio "apartment" room and so came with an equipped kitchenette.

The restaurant breakfast was of a high standard with enough variety to suit different tastes. Dinner is also served at the restaurant and service is quick.

Another thing that I really like about this hotel is the very well equipped gym and clean swimming pool. Top notch!

However, the main reason for rating this hotel so high is the staff. From the reception to the restaurant, everyone was helpful and ready to serve (with a smile). I must specially mention Glesie who was a great hostess. in addition to managing the meeting room we utilized for our seminar and ensuring it met our requirements, she assisted in organizing a private and secure vehicle to take me and my colleague to visit the Taal volcano down at Tagaytay. She is such a pleasant lady and so are the other staff.

I recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Manila. I will definitely lodge at the Oakwood again whenever I am in Manila.

Room Tip: The rooms have large blue-tooth sound bars. No need to bring your blue-tooth speaker.

“Stayed in Oakwood last week”

Visited Manila last week for business and stayed in Oakwood for 5 nights. The hotel and facilities is out of this world. Its advisable to book one of the suites/service apartment. To start with the temperature controlled swimming pool is apt for doing a few laps in the evening. Food served at the Nostalg restaurant is awesome, specially the desert "choco lava cake". Location wise the hotel is well accessible to one of the happening place in Pasig city, the Metrowalk.

Stayed August 2016, traveled on business
