The Manila Hotel

Top choice hotel in Manila
Image by

One of Asia’s grand and regal hotels, where everyone from General MacArthur to the Beatles to JFK has spent the night. It’s more than 100 years old, yet has kept up with the times brilliantly, adding elegant Filipino touches like capiz-shell dividers and two-poster beds to rooms that include every modern convenience imaginable, such as a flat-screen panel in the bath.

Depending on your tastes, you can choose between the modern business rooms in the new wing, or period-style rooms in the old wing. Online rates creep as low as P5000 for last-minute bookings – the steal of the century. Sumptuous buffet meals in the glorious lobby include weekend brunch.
