Discovery Primea

Another hotel along the busy district of Makati’s business center is Discovery Primea. The hotel is across beside the Ritz Tower and across the block of Glorietta.

Discovery Primea offers a  business flat and three suites: Business, Executive and Primea. The rooms differ in sizes but contain the same amenities and features. Each room has a Nespresso machine and LED TV, allowing you catch up on your favorite show or presentation. Besides these features, the hotel uses hypoallergenic goose feather mattress and offers a selection of pillows from their menu.

A Primea suite is entirely different. It includes a furnished kitchen with induction cooking range, full-sized refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven and glassware. It also has a washer and dryer. The suite boasts luxurious yet comfortable living.

Guests who enjoy European cuisine can find their fix at the 16th floor. The floor houses Flame, a restaurant that applies contemporary European meal preparation with Asian flavors. The restaurant caters to power lunches and intimate dinners in a lavish setting with a casual ambiance.


Hostels are becoming popular destinations in Makati for its low price, ambiance, and quality of service. Backpackers enjoy staying in these establishments because of the setup. Hostels provide the basics (place to sleep, store their things and unwind) while getting to know fellow travelers.

When considering a hostel, it’s important to think of the location and the services that it can offer. Checking the hostel’s user ratings before placing a booking helps guests look for the one that fits their needs.

Some hostels are found in the unpleasant parts of the neighborhood. Photos on the Internet won’t provide this information. At the same time, it can be far from the places you plan to visit. A short walk can mean traversing through the river or half the city.
