sweet nothings at the linden suites

the linden suites is found along san miguel avenue in ortigas, pasig city.  like at richmonde, i also did not make an online reservation when i checked-in at this hotel.

A singular blend of hotel luxury and the warmth of home! At the Linden Suites Manila, we boast more than 160 serviced rooms and suites that promise the space, elegance and functionality that every traveler deserves. 

i chose their one-bedroom suite that has a living room and a dining room.  i got a room at the tenth floor, 1001.  there is a home theater system, a fully serviced kitchen and a dining table then a working desk with an ergonomic chair is also included in the room. internet access is available upon request – as usual with an extra charge.

the bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, another television and a second working desk.  linden suites is highly recommended for business travellers.

who does not love a spotless bathroom?  lindens’ is one of the cleanest i’ve ever seen!  i can actually sleep on the floor, lol!

buffet breakfast is at azzurro bistro, situated at the second floor of the hotel.  their buffet was satisfying because it offered a lot of choices wherein they even have this delish vegetarian pasta (shown in the picture).

the linden suites also has its business center, a gym, sauna, swimming pool and jacuzzi.  for a balikbayan like me, a night’s stay at the linden suites is just purr.. fect.

distinctly richmonde

in san miguel avenue, richmonde hotel is another choice of good hotels around ortigas center.  i checked-in at this hotel as a walk-in guest, at first i thought there will be no available room for me but good thing there was.  richmonde is a few steps to reach the edsa plaza, the shangri-la plaza mall and sm megamall.

With The Richmonde Hotel’s extraordinary way of pampering, you’ll hardly feel away from home. With every stay at the Richmonde, experience a distinctly indulgent and comforting atmosphere where your every need is personally met. With our efficient and friendly concierge, professional housekeeping services and other special courtesies, we make you feel the extra attention that touches you from the start to the end of the day… the Richmonde way.

i got one of their superior rooms which has the basic amenities one needs for a night’s stay. 

a breakfast buffet is inclusive as well as free access to their health club.  wi-fi is available upon request with a separate charge (unfortunately, there are few hotels in manila which offers free wi-fi.).

now this was my desperate attempt to take a picture from the hotel window!  can you see the curtains? lol!
