Emerald Suites CDO: Urban Comfort in a Budget

Emerald Suites CDO: Urban Comfort at a Budget

Emerald Suites CDO, a budget-friendly hotel in the city of golden friendship was recognized as the Best Affordable Hotel Inn by Golden GLobe Annual Awards for Business Excellence (GGAABE) in 2016. Sold by this idea, I booked online to secure my room reservation all the while enjoying member's benefits - discounts and redeemable points.

I showed up at the reception with my better half on the scheduled date. Check-in was swift and smooth. After a short orientation of the hotel's rules breakfast time, we then took the stairs to our assigned room.

Emerald Suites' guest kits is a plus!
I was swept off when I entered the room. It was very spacious and in my mind I was like, " shall I do my workouts here or just roll on the floor?" 😂

Rooms and Amenities

Emerald Suites CDO has 30 spacious, comfortable rooms equipped with the following:
  • Fully air-conditioned
  • Cable LED TV
  • Hot and cold head shower
  • WiFi access
  • Toiletries and personal hygiene kit
  • Bath towels
  • Large cabinet
  • Dresser
  • A pair of room slippers

We chose the deluxe room for ourselves with a promo price of ₱1,280.00, but since I booked online, we end up paying less instead. More than the price mark down, I loved everything about the room - large space, comfortably soft bed and pillows, chic bath and toilet in blue and white combination, and the cleanliness in general. Another bonus was the hygiene kit provided, which included soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste. Other hotels usually provide soap and shampoo only. WiFi connection was also stable.

Breakfast for two was included in the net amount paid at the reception and can be ordered from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM at the hotel's cafe located at the ground floor.


The hotel is located in Jose Agudo St - just a stone throw away from the city’s major malls namely: SM Premier CDO, Ayala Centrio Mall, Gaisano Mall and LimKetKai Mall. It would not be hard to get around downtown city given its strategic location. Public transportation were easily accessible too.


Aside from the location, I also admired how the well-trained staff of Emerald Suites would greet you with their smiles from the moment they will see you approaching or just passing by the reception desk. Room service was quick as well. When the TV inside our room went dead, one of the staff immediately knocked on the door and offered assistance.

  1. No elevator not suitable for PWD and Senior Citizen .
    Maliit at walang bidet ang cr. Kung wla kang sasakyan kailangan mo mag lakad patungo main road sa saide ng Sm or Centrio. Ok lang mag lakad kung di umuulan or hindi mainit ang araw. Sa staff wala akong masabi mababait.
    Pero sobra sila maka singil nag exceed lang ng 30 minutes sa checkout time penalty ng 100. Agad samantalang 5pm naman ako nag check in.walang konsedirasyon. Maliit ang room para sa 1.2k hindi worth ang stay.Ayaw ko na bumalik jan.

    1. Hi, Jojo! I'm sorry to hear about the inconvenience it caused you, but I think every hotels have their own respective charges for excess hours of stay and 12nn is their checkout time the next day regardless of how late you checked in. Nevertheless, it would have been okay if they informed you ahead about the fee. Talking about convenience, it would depend as well about your purpose. Yes, I would have to agree with having your own car to get around but only if on a business trip.
