Zyrst Pension House Makati

by Kent & Victoria Davis
(CA, US)

We are a couple from CA, were in the Philippines for a few days. We ran across this quaint but rather comfortable and of course, cheap pension house in Makati.

Well, we chose the place because of its proximity to most of the establishments in the Makati area where we had to do business for the few days that we were there.

Rates are really low, starting at P795.00 a day, roughly 15 dollars (?). It has Wifi, a/con, all that sort of stuff.

The downside, is that there is no distinct signage outside the Pension house. The name of the place is ZYRST pension house and can be located at:

7521 Santillan St Makati

All the local cabs knows the address though. Security is okay as well.

Zyrst Pension House Makati: A Waste of Time and Money
by: Anonymous

First off, the pics they post with their ads, TOTALLY INACCURATE. The room I got didn't look ANYTHING like the ones in the ads.

It was run-down, there was no water in the bathroom sink's tap. There was only ONE working electrical socket, and that was the one above the bathroom sink. The matress was an old spring matress which was SO old and worn that you SANK into it PLUS it looked like it had a million fleas in between the sheets.

Second, HARD TO LOCATE. NUFF SAID.

When I got down from the cab for my late check in, I was greeted by a bunch of shady-looking guys having beers and cigarettes in what looked like a run-down garage.

I got the heck out after staying there for only 1.5 hours. They still charged me the full rate of 895php.

Even for a cheap place, IT'S A DUMP. STAY AWAY FROM IT.

very bad experience
by: Prex

I discovered about the place through sulit.com. It was my first time and it was very cheap with their offered "discounted" rooms. When I got there, I was shocked, I was given a room different from what I had previously booked. It was so small and had a common comfort room, and all the amenities of their advertised room where not present in the room that they gave me.

I was able to talk to Miss Jazz about the predicament and things got heated up. First because she did not apologized for the false advertisement, which could have been a result of a hacked account, secondly, when I told her that it was false advertising, she answered even without thinking ?everybody is doing it?. Wow, the morals that woman has. Have mercy on the Philippines, do not support this corrupt business woman.

The room that they gave me was very small, about the size of a double bed, with a fan and TV.There was a window opening to the main hallway, it was so low that somebody can peak into it. So for 585 pesos, I didn't get any value from it.

not that bad
by: Anonymous

Well, maybe these pips have not been there at all and just want to make nasty comments for who knows what and why.

But we've been there and yes, wifi is a little slow on some rooms but otherwise the place is ok and relatively comfy.

They need a cafeteria btw - Duerolitz

I don't recommend this place for travelers. So messy at di maayos kausap. To anyone interested, punatahan niyo ang lugar ng mapagod lang kayo.

zyrst ka
by: Anonymous

The place was quiet but one thing bothers me..

Is it a pension house or a gay's den? hahaha I think 70% of the costumers there are gays.

They are not showy, but the fact that you know the gesture of a gay makes you uncomfortable. haha!

Not good at all.
by: Anonymous

My husband and I was been in Zyrst pension for how many times...

At first they are very accommodating, but the second time around they treat us badly...

While my husband and I was in a hotel somewhere in Pasay, we decided to transfer in Zyrst, but then we used to call and call them to asked if they still have available room, coz at 12nn we need to check out of that hotel, until they informed us very late that they dont have a vacant room...

And then lastly when we were there, they gave us the most awful room..Sink that is about to fall and with a mirror that you could only seen half of your face..

This pension is always putting us in compromised.
They dont even inform us early if they still a vacant room or not...You cant even rely on their contact numbers and if you can, they don't even send any replies...

Well I preferred AMAX IN MAKATI. Its 5 minutes walk from Zyrst...Even the rate is a bit high, but then you will find your self comfy there...

OWNER VERY RUDE! ! ! ! ! ! !
by: Miss Mae

I called, texted and emailed Miss Jazz (the owner and the contact person for this pension house) because me and my boyfriend were planning to go to Manila on November 14-16, 2009. I asked her if there's an available room and then she was asking me terrible things like where was I located and she even accused me that I WAS THE MISTRESS OF HER HUSBAND!!!! oh my god!!! it was very rude of her.

We don't even know her and her husband personally and we just got her number here on the internet. She even kept on texting me that I was the mistress of her husband and that I should leave her alone. DUH!!! I was a possible customer, however we just canceled our plan to book in their pension since Miss Jazz was so RUDE!!!!! it's not the right way you should entertain your guests. you should not make accusations because you don't even know the person yet!

TO MISS JAZZ - You should be a professional!!!! You're such a rude lady!!!! PEOPLE SHOULD NOT COME IN YOUR PENSION BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT CUSTOMER SERVICE MEANS!!!!

another jewel
by: Anonymous

I stayed at another pension house called Makati Apartelle. The rate is 900 pesos a day for a room with bath, kitchen and furnished with aircon, big cable tv, ref, telephone, wifi, etc.

Seemed more like a condominium unit than a room in a pension. Very clean, a lot of Asian art and decor scattered around the building. Sweet all-girl staff. I got them thru their website.
Address is 4411 Montojo Street but forgot their telephone number.

Price is Ok
by: Anonymous

Me and My wife stayed there for 2 days the place is Ok.

The price is very affordable and to think its in the heart of Makati. I recommend the place for those taking the nclex. Cables blurry though, but the important thing is the place is clean.

Not comfortable
by: Anonymous

Rate is affordable, but its not worth the price. Wifi, yes but in limited areas.

Aircon is not that cold unless its midnight.

Hope management improves the condition of each room.
