Oasis Paco Park Hotel
Well removed from the hustle and bustle of Malate and Ermita you’ll find this friendly neighbourhood hotel...
If you’re looking for a classic hotel with a little Old-Manila flavour that won’t break the bank, look no further than this 1930s Art Deco masterpiece. Rooms are smartly furnished and although fully modern still have some pre-war charm...
Chill Out Guesthouse
Boldly challenging Friendly’s turf, this newish hostel passes the eye test, with blissfully air-conditioned dorms plus an OK hangout/kitchen area where smoking is allowed. One drawback is the location, on one of Ermita’s louder and dodgier blocks.
New Camelot Hotel
Even if you’re not a big fan of renaissance fairs, you’ll likely find this King Arthur–themed hotel unusually fascinating...
Mandarin Oriental Manila
As with any of the world’s Mandarin Orientals, the level of service here will simply astonish those who’ve not experienced it before. The rooms are freshly renovated and the spa is arguably Manila’s finest.
The only selling points of the creaky Townhouse are that it’s cheap and it’s close to the airport. Luckily for Townhouse, those are strong selling points.
Our Melting Pot
Rarely can a humble hostel claim such a swanky address as A Venue Suites. Occupying an apartment within the revered hotel/residence, OMP delivers on minimalist style (lovely beds), yet remains down-to-earth...
As the Mandarin Oriental is to Bangkok and Raffles is to Singapore, so is the Manila Hotel to Manila. This is one of Asia’s grand and regal hotels, where everyone from General MacArthur to the Beatles to JFK has spent the night...
Dusit Thani Manila
Recent renovations have brought this closer to the big boys.
The Peninsula Manila
With rooms that highlight the best of Filipino design, the Peninsula is a Makati veteran that nevertheless appears brand new. The cafe in the soaring lobby has a fine Sunday brunch and is a 24-hour destination for the city’s business elite...
Orchid Garden Suites
An elegant choice that’s also convenient to Malate. Guests stay in a 1980s tower block in huge rooms that have been nicely maintained...
Riviera Mansion Hotel
A sleek lobby and great bathrooms, but rooms don’t quite follow suit – standard rooms have too much fabric and small beds. Wi-fi is P100 per hour.
Casa Bocobo Hotel
This is it: Metro Manila’s best midrange hotel. Classy black-and-white photos and mounted flat-screen TVs adorn meticulously painted walls, and attractive lamps flank beds draped in soft white linens...
Imperial Palace Suites
Well-kept if slightly dated rooms with kitchenettes and plenty of amenities, overlooking the Boy Scouts Monument. Scout the promo rates here.
Pearl Garden Hotel
This is the most modern and stylish of Malate’s midrange hotels. Unfortunately, many rooms stink of smoke...
City Garden Suites
This huge three-star hotel is an OK fit for business travellers on a budget. Wi-fi isn’t free. Standard rooms are motel basic but well equipped, while pricier rooms boast Italian-inspired accents.
The Legend Villas
Popular with Filipino businessmen, the Legend boasts a creative and individualistic design: think polished wood detailing, wrought-iron chandeliers and an elegant Spanish influence. Wi-fi costs extra.
Ralph Anthony Suites
It’s primarily long-term accommodation but it provides good value for short-term guests. One-bedroom suites have kitchenettes.
Las Palmas Hotel
This recently renovated 1970s veteran still shows its age in spots, but you won’t get cheated on the well-appointed rooms, which are sizeable and dominated by king-sized beds. Wi-fi costs extra. ‘Deluxe’ rooms are well worth the modest extra splurge.
Pearl Lane Hotel
Just a small step down from its larger sister, Pearl Garden, with the same strengths and (smoky) weaknesses.
Manila International Youth Hostel
This hostel near the airport has one gargantuan men’s dorm (36 beds) and more manageable women’s dorms (12 beds).
Lotus Garden Hotel
An impressive midranger with a glamorous curved staircase and the busy (and smoky) Cilantro Restaurant Bar commanding attention in the lobby. As you rise through the price range you gain light and amenities such as a kitchen. Extras include a gym.
