What They Charge for In-room Broadband @ Makati Shangri-La

What they charge for broadband at Makati Shangri-La

So checked into Makati Shangri-La for four days, both business and pleasure.  The hotel sure looks great given its five-star status, but so are the charges for in-room broadband.  Figure this one out, US$1=PHP43 or HK$1=PHP5.  Ouch. Can’t believe people are still making money off this.

Now I’m blogging from the Lobby Lounge where they are charging a bit less for the WiFi, PHP250 per hour.  The good thing is that if I consume more than that amount on my food and beverage bill (by the hour), it’s free.
