  • It's a great place to spend with family and friends. You can tour your visitors here. It is rich with historical background. Usually crowded on a weekend. You can go to intramuros after where more historical establishments can be found. Book a tourist guide to help you navigate the place easily. There's a lot of multi language tour guide in the area.
  • My 3 nights and 4 days stay here made as feel like we're home. The complimentary breakfast was very delicious. So relaxing and would stay here again soon.

Where to stay in Manila

Manila has the full spectrum of hospitality options, from highly affordable hostels you can book on the spot to luxury four- and five-star resorts. Opt to stay in mid-range and upscale hotels clustered around the central business district, or score sea views at the resorts facing Manila Bay. If you choose to go for the budget-friendlier hostel, note that many have large dorm rooms with many bunk beds, catering primarily to job-seekers, while others are designed for young backpackers looking to make new friends.
