“Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.”
We spent an overnight at Y2 Residence Hotel to do a review of this hotel and we can say that it was beyond our expectations. This newest boutique hotel, that is right at the center of the busy area of Makati Avenue – a 21-storey building, is a gem that is just waiting to be spotted by frequent travelers in the city. The ambiance is chic and just perfect for locals and foreigners alike.
For travelers who have little time to spend, Y2 Residence Hotel is a perfect location that is very much accessible to food, shopping and entertainment spots along the Makati Avenue. It also well sited just a few walks away from the newly opened Century City, a hip mall in Makati. And if you’re planning to stroll, Ayala Center and Rockwell Power Plant are few minutes drive away from Y2. The hotel is at the corner of Valdez and Santiago streets near Kalayaan, Makati Avenue.

Staying at Y2 Residence Hotel will give you comfort and ease. You will experience a relaxing stay with amenities and facilities like the gym and Amare Spa. You can enjoy a swim at the roof deck pool area where you can have a skyline view of the Makati district from where your eyes can see. Pool opens from 6 AM until 12 MN.
Y2 Residence Hotel houses the newest Southeast Asian Diner called Pink Panda – an Asian-inspired restaurant located at the right wing side of the hotel lobby. We had breakfast buffet of Daing na Bangus, Corned Beef, Pork Luncheon Meat partnered with garlic rice at Pink Panda the morning after. Pink Panda is open for walk-ins from 11 AM to 12 MN.
The room that we stayed at, is a One Bedroom Deluxe that was just marvelous. It’s a big room that has a feel like home concept where you would not even think of leaving out of the room anymore. There’s the LED TV, a comfy bed, refrigerator, kitchen, cool air-conditioning unit, complimentary Wi-Fi access, and a clean bathroom packed with toiletries essentials.
Y2 Residence Hotel is 100% within the budget range. Think of it as an affordable five-star hotel. Room rates goes from Php 3,769 net (max. of 2 persons) to Php 12,750 net (max. of 6 persons), based on overnight accommodation and type of rooms. Our room, a One Bedroom Deluxe, rates at Php 5,100 net good for 2 persons.
It’s conveniently affordable that even the snacks and drinks on their mini bar are easy on the pocket. We couldn’t resist that we had to open a can of Pringles because we can! Normally, you would not dare touch the mini bar unless you have that extra money.
But if you’re really tight on the budget, there are several convenience stores located near the hotel area. Affordable fast-food stores like Jollibee, KFC, Mang Inasal, Andok’s, and the likes are just a walking distance from the hotel. Not to mention also that the commercial hub A Venue is just a few steps outside Y2.
If you’re looking for Persian dishes, you might want to visit Benny’s Falafel, just beside the hotel.
The area is full packed with bars and if you’re the night owl type of person, there are lots of places to check out.
Public rides are easy accessible from the hotel lobby or from across the street. Taxi cabs and jeepneys are available, 24/7.
Hotel staff are friendly as per our experience and they will readily answer on details when you ask for information of the hotel.
We were very satisfied during our overnight stay. Glad that we chose to reserved that booking for this review since we had a lot of events in Makati area and Y2 Residence Hotel was very convenient for us during that time. The fact that the hotel is situated in a busy area, we never experienced any noise or disturbance especially when we slept that night. The only thing that was missing that we did not try was the Amare Spa clinic.
