De La Salle–College of Saint Benilde Manila is one of the top institutions in the country for its The School of Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management.  What many do not know however, is that it also has its own four-star hotel:  Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle.

The hotel is strategically located that it is only a few minutes away from:
  • Malate - tourist center of Manila
  • Makati - Philippine's central business district
  • Airport - NAIA terminal 1, 2 and 3

Although it is a big building with many floors, the hotel area only occupies the 1st, 11th, 12th and roof deck.  The rest is dedicated for labs.

All rooms are equipped with an advance proximity card door lock system, electronic doorbell, DO not disturb (DND) and make-up room indicator.   For added security, the proximity card is also required for elevator use.

As you can see the room is very nice.  The queen size bed comes with a soft duvet bed linen, two super soft pillows and two extra pillows.  There is an extra loft which is even softer than the bed.  The carpeted floors are clean.  There are multiple lamps with appropriate switches.  There is even a minimal night light which I really appreciate.

There's a work desk with lamp, telephone, tea and coffee with electric kettle.  For laptop use and gadget charging, their electric socket is compatible for 110v and 220v so no need for adapters.

I find the TV as an important aspect of a hotel stay.  I like turning it on just for a more comfortable vibe especially when I'm alone so it doesn't feel too quiet.   The 40-inch LED TV gives a superb viewing experience.

There's a fridge, more than adequate drawers, a huge closet with an electronic safe and iron with ironing board and hangers.

bathroom
The bathroom is also spacious.  I found the sliding door with mirror to be innovative and functional.

bathroom
The towel rack has a complete set of hand, face and body towels for two.

toiletries
There is also a complete set of toiletries.

Roof Deck

One of the best hotel facility you can avail is the swimming pool at the roof deck.  It has a scenic view of the sun set and Makati City.

vatel restaurant
Also located at the roof deck is Vatel Restaurant - a French restaurant run by students.  This is required by Institut Vatel since it has a tie up with De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management.

Complimentary Breakfast
cafe romancon
At Cafe Romancon located at the ground floor of Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle is where you can claim your welcome drinks and the sumptuous complimentary breakfast buffet.  It also provides a free daily news paper so I did my morning routine of reading the newspaper after breakfast.

Although choices are limited, they are filling and satisfying.  There's the usual Filipino breakfast fare like hotdog, other items including a soup dish, fresh fruits, pastries and cheese.

Cereal lovers especially kids will be delighted with their cereal selection.

Dorm Room

One thing I found unique is the dormitory.  For as low as 1,500, dorm guests can enjoy in this bed with work space and also avail of the complimentary breakfast.  This is the female dormitory.  I found the male dormitory to be a bit spacious.  To avail, it requires a minimum of 8.

bathroom
For this 64 sqm. room specially made for groups there's a twin toilet and shower area.
