Staycation Diaries: Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences (Makati City)


A couple of months back, Mark and I had the luxury to stay at Picasso Boutique Serviced ResidencesΒ in Makati for their feature at WheninManila.com (Read the article here: The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences: An Artsy Staycation in the City). Mark and I are very fond of staying in, but we never really considered ‘staycations’ as much, since we always opt for cheaper alternatives (aka staying at home, cooking, and binge watching movies). It was a different kind of experience for us, but it was sure a pleasurable one, as we are the type of couple who likes to eat and just be lazy.

What to expect?

 

PICASSO BOUTIQUE HOTEL

As the name suggests, Picasso is a very artsy place to stay, with displays of paintings on every floor, and a hint of well thought art on every single piece placed inside the hotel. There are various facilities available for guests, such as a gym on the 5th and 6th floors, a Wifi Lounge on the 2nd floor, a salon (Studio 119) and a wellness spa (QI Wellness Spa) both located at the ground floor, and an alluring art gallery (operated and curated byΒ Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea) on the 4th floor. They also have Pablo, a bistro / restaurant that serves a variety of dishes mostly inspired by European and Western Dishes.

 

 

Where did we stay?

Mark and I stayed at their Montparnasse Suite, located at the 7th floor. It’s an 88 square meter room, intricately designed with red highlights and mini paintings. According to them, the room was named after Montparnasse in Paris, which is a usual place for artists like Picasso.

The room has a king bed set-up, a dining area, a couch, a kitchenette, a bath tub, and a beautiful balcony area, which was perfect place for a quick night cap and some heart to heart talk (LOL). We definitely fell in love with the balcony and stayed there for a long time. We also enjoyed the tub a lot, that we kind of fought over who’s turn it is (ha ha).

We mostly cuddled in bed, bought a bunch of junk food, and talked a lot about our life. Our room also has a nice ipod dock, and we kind of danced around stupidly over pop songs and different spotify playlists. It’s pretty much our usual stay ins, only fancier and much more comfortable.

 

Side note: Plus points to their fast wifi!

The place is conveniently located at the heart of Makati. It took us a couple of blocks to reach Century City Mall and Makati Avenue, where a flock of restaurants are ready to welcome you with open arms. We ended up having a take out burger, bought a tub of ice cream, and some chips. We love our room that much, that we never wanted to leave. Ha ha! Plus it’s always fun to stay on your PJs.

 

Side note: If you check in on a weekend, you may also want to check Salcedo Market, it’s just a couple of minutes away from the hotel!

We had a complimentary breakfast in the morning, care of Pablo. Food was A+, definitely loved their buffet selection, that ranges from baguettes to delicious and generous serving of eggs and other dishes.

 

What did we like about Picasso?

Aside from the super nice rooms, I also fell in love with the art scattered through out the building. There were really beautiful pieces that you can easily spot while walking on the hallways, or while waiting for your turn in the lobby. They also have a small nook that’s super colorful and cute, I’d love to have one myself at home!

 

All in all, the stay was really wonderful, and we’d definitely like to go back! Such a treat after a very toxic week, I must say. πŸ™‚

    In fairness, bet ko yung bed nila sa room. I wouldn't mind staying in kung ganyan din lang kaganda ang room. And breakfast buffets at hotels are <3! Was there any bacon? Hehe.
