Citadines Hotel is an amazing suite my family and I stayed in on November 8 to 10, 2018. It’s a wonderful hotel with great staff with such welcoming arms and friendly attitude. Despite the fact that we only went back to Citadines due to some rather unforeseen consequences and issues with the Linden Suites hotel. Citadines however, was the very first choice we made when looking for a hotel to stay in. Despite the fact that we always stayed in Linden Suites and have only heard about Citadines just recently, we decided to stay in Citadines due to a not-so-good experience in Linden Suites. Citadines Millennium Hotel is located at Ortigas close to SM Megamall. The hotel is owned by Ascott and is also part condo or apartment.
Very good-looking and cozy, the Citadines room I stayed in was nice, although a little bit cold as you go in for the first time. The kitchen is complete with everything you need just waiting on the counter and cabinets. You have a rice cooker, a set of utensils, a frying pan and so much more. The master bedroom is so big that it has a cozy chair, a nice view and a bathroom with a safe, a closet and laundry basket in it. Since Citadines is a courtesy of Ascott, the room also has a washing machine. The washing machine can be at most a bit annoying because 1 minute takes so very long when it’s suppose to end after 1 minute.
Citadines’ breakfast buffet is not all at fancy for me. They do have the most desirable coffee machine for those who wish to get as much coffee as they like. There buffet table consists of Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Beef Tapa, Buttered Vegetables, Fried Fish Sticks, Arroz Caldo, Cereals, Bread and utterly so much carbs. Although, the Bacon and Tapa take shifts. Every morning, they replace Bacon with Beef Tapa or vice versa.
The Pool was amazing despite the fact that the sun never shone on it. For the whole duration of our trip, no one swam with us on the pool except the last day which apparently the day I visited the DC Super Heroes Café I will post the link to that below. The pool was cold at first when we arrived and took our first swim because our bodies took in so much heat that it counteracted with the cold frost of the water. Also, it was pretty simple, all you had to do was sign your name, and room number on a paper get some towels and you’re ready to go. Don’t forget to take a shower though.
The environment around the building was awesome. We had many places to go and many different restaurants to eat from. They even had a backdoor which will lead you to the Coffee Bean which is just a few steps away from the back door. The building is close to a Robinson’s mall which had many restaurants cafés as well as a supermarket It even had its own food court.
