My friends from Dumaguete constantly ask me, “What’s the hotel you could recommend in Manila which is just a few minutes from the airport?” I often have to think hard before I could give them a definite answer for their query before but now I have one.
I decided to try AurumOne with a friend since it is just roughly 10 minutes from the Domestic Airport and she needed to attend some business in Manila for the weekend. From its lobby to the rooms, I noticed how new, clean, and spacious the place is. There was actually a wedding shoot during my stay and no wonder because the place has an architecture and aura suitable for such. I also love the modern and cozy feel of our room which exudes elegance and class. Our room has an LCD television, refrigerator, coffee table set, cabinet, and working desk perfect for both business and leisure travelers. The key take away of the place, for me, is the high quality of service and excellent rooms at a reasonable price.

Since I have to catch up with favorite TV Series, Game of Thrones, I was very delighted to know that they have a free WIFI and the connection is very stable. I was able to have a re-cap of the previous episodes I have watched and continued the ones I have missed. We bought a stash of food, from the area, ahead so we would be able to stay in our comfy beds and not be disturbed with our series marathon.
Around 7pm, we decided to take a pause and visit the roof deck area of the building since I have developed a love for night skies and city lights. The dining area at the roof deck, where the breakfast buffet is also located, has a pretty night view with the glow of Makati skyline at a distance.
Apart from it being near the airport, it also is just minutes away from the Makati Central Business District, Ayala Center, Mall of Asia and the Entertainment City Complex in the adjoining City of Pasay.
AurumOne Makati has a total of 63 guestrooms which comprises of 42 deluxe rooms, 9 suites, 11 lofts, and 1 premier suite. The lofts are actually available for long term use to meet the needs of different kinds of travelers.
Furthermore, AurumOne Makati is actually a social enterprise that provides investment, job generating and reintegration opportunities to OFWs. It is a joint collaboration between a private equity group and the Kapatiran Sa Kasaganaan Cooperative (KsKCoop), an investment-focused cooperative of OFWs.
