Question-   Introductio to Azumi Boutique Hotel in Muntinlupa, Manila

Solution-

Functionality, Versatility, Practicality and Convenience

Strong Points:

  • The extra sofa next to the queen-sized bed is an excellent addition for providing guests to sit or relax that isn’t on the bed. A simple, comfy chair or cozy couch creates the perfect spot for reading, relaxing, and/or enjoying your morning coffee.
  • The television is located near the bed, which is more comfortable for the guests to reach. The sink is near the refrigerator, so you don’t need to move around to get and put what you want.
  • Azumi Boutique Hotel is conveniently located in Manila and is a perfect base from which to discover the vibrant city. This 4-star hotel is just 17 km away and can be easily reached from the airport. The hotel is convenient, access to the numerous attractions and landmarks of the area, such as Alabang Medical Center, Alabang Town Center, and Festival Supermall.

Weak Points:

  • The television cannot be seen on the sofa.
  • There’s no lamp to use during night time.

Course of Action:

  • There's an extra sofa, so the television needs to be in the middle. They should reduce the size of the cabinet and refrigerator to rearrange and adjust the position of the television.
  • The light comes from the floor-to-ceiling glass door so no need to use too much light in the morning, but since the ceiling is too high the light wasn’t clear enough. It should be better if there’s atleast one lamp to use during the night.

 

Use of Space

Strong Points:

  • The room is spacious enough for 2-3 people, the use of mirrors and floor-to-ceiling glass door makes the room look more spacious.
  • The hotel room uses a 2-in-1 table cabinet, making it more functional and extend its use. The TV and other things can be placed on top which minimize the cost of buying new furniture.

 

Weak Points:

  • The cabinet is too big that it takes a lot of space. Usually, a lot of guests would go out and experience the city, or if they are too tired, they will not bother to unpack.
  • The refrigerator is also unnecessarily big; if someone stays in a hotel, they will order from room service or buy their food outside.

Course of action:

  • Reduce the size of the cabinet, and design a partially open closet. The partially open closet allows guests to see clothes hanging, which avoid the items getting left behind.
  • Choose smaller refrigerator to maximize space and put it under or beside the sink.  

 

 

 

Integration of Design for Physically Challenged Persons

Strong Point:

  • The bed height is easily accessible to transfer into the bed from a wheelchair.

 

Weak Points:

  • The pathway to the bathroom is too narrow, there’s not enough clear floor space for a wheelchair to turn around.
  • There is no equipment for the people with hearing and/or sight impairments.
  • The cabinet is too high to reach.
  • There’s no ramp on the floor to the balcony.

 

Course of Action:

  • Remove unnecessary furniture to widen the space and arrange furniture so it does not block access to power outlets, temperature controls, or curtain handles.
  • Hotels must offer guest rooms: audible and visible alarms, as well as visible notification devices to alert guests of incoming telephone calls and door knocks or bells.
  • Put mid-height cabinets, light switches, and power outlets.
  • Putting a ramp on the floor to the balcony for the physically challenged persons to be able to enjoy the view.

 

Safety and Security

Strong Points:

  • The balcony has railings out of reach of children.
  • There is a smoke detector in the ceiling.
  • The key card is a great security measure because the elevator automatically limits the access of the guests to the floor where their assigned room is located. The same key card is also used as an electronic key to open the door to the guest's designated room.

 

Weak Points:

  • There is no evacuation plan that is usually located behind the door or table beside the bed, and has no visible sprinklers in the ceiling in case of emergency.

 

Course of Action:

  • It's essential for the hotel management to organize Hotel fire evacuation procedures and an ordered and timely evacuation in such circumstances. By preparing a Hotel fire evacuation procedures or fire escape diagram, sticking or hanging it on visible places, providing hotel emergency procedures manual in every room with fire sprinkler systems in place hotel guests will feel more secure.

 

 

Concern for the Environment

Strong Points:

  • It has floor-to-ceiling window, which allow more light to stream through the room.
  • The hotel also makes use of Ecocarat tiles, which absorb humidity and foul odors, minimizing energy consumption throughout the hotel.
  • The key card has power-saving features as it acts as a power-switch to the room, activating power when the card is placed inside the wall slot, and cutting off power when removed.

 

Weak Point:

  • The hotel is using non-biodegradable water bottles as a complimentary.

 

Course of Action:

  • Stock the room with reusable coffee mugs and glasses rather than plasticware.

 

 

 

 

Aesthetic Elements

Strong Points:

  • The walls are colored grey while accents of orange pillows and chair are incorporated into the design. The wooden panels on the floor and cabinets give a warm and cozy feel inside the room.
  • The door on the balcony is made of glass covered with heavy drapes curtains which helps deaden the sound that is entering or leaving the room.
  • The beautiful view can be seen through the large balcony, on daytime as well as city lights on night time.

 

Weak Point:

  • There are no amenities and accessories that can boost the ambiance of the room.

 

Course of Action:

  • Placement of amenities and accessories such as free coffee and tea, plants/flowers, jars, vases, artworks and/or wall hangings.

 

 

 

 

Workflow of Staff and Guest

Strong Points:

  • The space is easy to clean because the floor is not carpeted.
  • The staff and guests are able to move easily and allow them to move in and out.

 

Weak Points:

  • Cleaning the mirrors and glass door may be difficult because it is too high to reach. The mirror is also above the bed, which means the sofa and the bed must be move by the attendant every time they clean.

 

Course of Action:

  • Use a stick when cleaning high mirrors to avoid shoulder and back sprain/injury.
  • Get a help when moving large and heavy objects.
