Review: Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila

Review: Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila

After a week of hectic schedule, it is great to have a little treat and stay (apparently spontaneously) at one of the prime hotels in Bonifacio Global City.

Just a few steps from my work building, Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila is one of the known upscale service apartments that provides an amazing experience of hospitality.

Update October 20, 2019: Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila just recently awarded as the Philippines' Leading Serviced Apartment 2019 by World Travel Awards Asia & Oceania, for the 4th-year.

Although I only spent an overnight at this place, it was a breathtaking experience and never regret spending a spontaneous expense because I got a good sleep and rest. I never got a chance to roam around its other amenities as I am already feeling very comfortable in my 1-bedroom executive that makes me want to just enjoy my slumber while watching the new episode of Lucifer Morningstar (gosh that dude is sexy!).




This room is indeed impressive. Floors are fully carpeted like walking in a cloud without hearing your own shoes. Well spacious lounge and a window with a good view overlooking the beauty of The Fort at night.

And I wouldn’t mind inviting someone for a cooking session with this all equipped kitchen available. And if you are staying here for a week for business, you wouldn’t worry where to send your laundry because this unit got its own impressive washer.

Another thing that I am impressed with is the spacious bathroom of my own. Equipped with this amazing deep-soaking bath, ready to make me feel relax in an hour of warm bubble bath, while listening to old melody of Henry Mancini (yup I love classic), and a glass of champagne – I knew it is one of the best relaxing night I had. Those L’Occitane toiletries are really good… so good that I didn’t use the extras and decided to take them home. You see, I don’t like wasting good stuffs!

Even taking a selfie for my adorable boyfriend is good with these dim lights on.

By the way, morning is quite nice with this free coffee and tea. Did I mention these are Nespresso?!



Breakfast at ALTA Restaurant

Review: Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila
My overnight stay comes with a free buffet breakfast at ALTA by the famous Chef Margarita Fore located at the 2nd floor. If you have a habit of waking up early in the morning and enjoy a good breakfast, you should do that too when you stayed here at Ascott BGC. They’ve got good selection of food during that day. It’s been awhile since I dined with them, but I heard this place is now called Scotts.




Review: Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila
Whether it is (still) ALTA or Scotts, I will dine again in this restaurant. Maybe my next dinner date will be here.






Other Amenities:

Aside from a good valet service that they have on the ground floor, they also have this eye-catchy swimming pool – it was just a shame I don’t have a time to enjoy it.



They also have a fully airconditioned fitness centre, so no need to squeeze on other gym nearby.

You can also host your own party or business meetings with Ascott, as they have an impressive meeting rooms and function halls, fully equipped with all your needs that feels like you have your own office.



After all, you can’t deny the good feeling of sitting on a good place with a nice view, right?


Verdict


It was an amazing experience even just for an overnight stay. Maybe next time I will make sure my boyfriend is with me so we can enjoy the whole weekend. I’d like to try their sauna!

  6. This is such a beautiful place! Although I like the furniture of the room, the public areas are even more alluring. Maybe it's the height of the ceiling that makes the lobby so majestic.

  38. I don't blame you. I would fall asleep too once I get to the room. It looks neat and quiet, and the bathtub is so inviting. Too bad you didn't have time to swim on that eye-catchy pool. So, you're right, you must come back for a weekend.

    1. I will! I missed that pool and I must try it once, even just for the pool.

  39. I just love staycations like this as you really get to appreciate having a 'power break' in a place you would not normally have the need to be. And your choice of hotel looks to be really fabulous with its modern, clean and classy look. I don't blame you for wanting to return for a weekend with your boyfriend to enjoy the rest of the facilities - the standard of the place speaks for itself from your photos!

  42. This is exactly the type of hotel I adore. Having a beautiful room with all the amenities like this one makes me want to stay in and just lavish in the luxury...and that deep-soaking tub? Heavenly. It would be hard to leave after just one night. Ascott Bonifacio would definitely be my first choice for a stay in Global City Manila. I don't need any further persuasion than what I see here. Thanks for the recommendation!

  46. I like living in service apartments because it feels like home and gives the comfort of hotel too. The kitchen is the high point because thats where you can cook whatever you want.
