Hotel Review: Y2 Residence Hotel

We love staycation! In fact, we make sure to stay at the hotel once every quarter because our kids love to swim. Yes! Nag staycation lang kami dahil sa pool. Anyway, every New Year countdown our family stay at hotel which serves as our home away from home because my mom has asthma and afraid of fireworks. Our initial plan is to stay at Antel Hotel but already fully booked when we inquire, so I look for other hotels near Makati and luckily I stumbled on Y2 Residence Hotel promo on their Facebook account. I called their reservation office and booked 2BR for 3 days 2 nights stay from Dec 31st to Jan 2, 2018.

Our check-in process was definitely smooth however the reception area was jam-packed that time, grabe ang daming nag check-in sa hotel so we were asked to wait at the lobby while processing our reservation. After few minutes, we’re off to our unit. Oh by the way, I booked non-smoking room but since they are fully booked we were transfer to smoking area but they assured us that no one use the cigarettes on that floor since all the visitors are composed of family with kids. They also put humidifier at the corridor just to make sure.

The moment we step inside the hotel, I was amazed with the artistic and minimalist design of the lobby with dramatic use of black and white touches throughout the wall and furnishings. There are hand-painted walls around the area and you can easily notice the concept of two opposing but equal forces in a tight embrace to produce balance and harmony which immediately catches our eyes. Ang ganda nya promise.

Look at the ceiling, simply beautiful
Our 2BR is located on the 17th floor of the building, the only down side of this hotel is that the two elevators were small and we have to wait on queue to get to the floor/room. I hope they improve as most of the guests are excited to see and relax on their room. Parang 48 years ka pang maghihintay para makasakay ng elevator. Hayz.

Anyway, moving forward let’s go to our room. Since we booked for 2BR Deluxe, I expect our room to be spacious as we have three kids in tow. We were surprised how big our room was, it was HUGE and it feels like home concept, really home-away-from home comfort.  The room is clean with complete necessary complimentary amenities such as toiletries, refreshments (bottled water), fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, induction cooker, coffee maker and dinnerware. It has a living room with amenities such as cable LED television, Wi-Fi access, Telephone facility and minimal furniture.

Now let’s proceed with the rooms. There are two comfort rooms; one is located in the masters’ bedroom while the other is in the common area. Each room has a queen sized bed, pillows and comforter. All are clean and comfy. Gusto ko na nga syang iuwi eh. Haha. The masters’ bedroom has a cable television and study table. The cabinets are huge with safety deposit box and complimentary slippers which we used during our stay. They also provides laundry bag just in case you need it. The bathrooms are clean with complete toiletries. You may request for additional supplies for FREE just in case you consumed it. Well, we request for another toilet tissue and they immediate responds to our request.

The rooftop swimming pool is located at the penthouse which gives you a spectacular 360-degree view of the city; however you need to use stairs from 20th floor. Another disappointment for me as my mom has a problem with her legs, hirap na syang maglakad and umakyat ng stairs kaya di tuloy sya nakapag swimming though my kids enjoyed the pool.

The gym on the other hand is located at the upper Penthouse. They have advanced fitness machines such as stationary bikes, treadmills, weight loss and muscled-toning equipment. They also provide towels and water dispenser. Ang saya lang kasi may isang beses na nasolo ko yung buong gym. Hehe. 

Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay here because everything went well. We really had a great time celebrating New Year’s Day at Y2 Hotel. The rooms are nice and comfortable to stay, living room was spacious, everything is just neat and clean, facilities are okay, the ambiance is chic and homey. I’m so glad I was able to check their facebook page for the promo. So if you’re looking for staycation in Makati, try checking out their facebook page for monthly promos.
