  • Casa Manila is the perfect place if you want to feel Spanish spirit from the ancient times. Architecture is breath taking.  more »
  • Beautiful building, it seems like all new. The wooden floors, wood carvings of the furniture, there seems to be no end to arrive. The living spaces are so pure and correctly as possible. The kitchen, bathroom and toilet were the stunning climax. The only sad thing is that photos are banned.

  • Very nice old colonial House, fully furnished with old furniture. The only downside is that you can take any photos inside.

  • Super pretty, looks like a miniature set from Game of Thrones. Pity it's surrounded by stores and restaurants, but that's Intramuros for you.
  • Entering the place is like going through a time machine back to the spanish occupation of the Philippines. The atmosphere, the houses and the architecture is beautiful.
  • So beautiful. Cute cafe. Nice restaurant. Well laid out reproduction house and museum that gives a great feel for old colonial times. All set in cute little alleyways and through archways and tiny courtyards.
  • Enjoy the music, dance and their buffet food. Reservations is recommended.
  • It is beautiful place for capture the photo. I like it very much.
