When my parents visited the city for Christmas last year, I wanted to book a two-bedroom suite for our family at the Makati Diamond Residences, a full-serviced residence at the heart of the Makati Central Business District, appointed with 433 spacious and modern guestrooms.
Unfortunately, when I decided to book a suite, there was no availability on Christmas Eve anymore. We can stay after Christmas but the prices were outrageously high, even for a luxurious hotel, since it was holiday season!
I decided to pass up on this hotel then but fast forward to February of this year, not only was I able to book a room but I got a great deal too, saving more than Php3,500! No, I was not sponsored or given a media discount by the property but a fellow blogger introduced me to the Traveloka mobile app!
