Town and Country Hotel: Good place to stay

Highly recommended.

They have affordable, clean and comfortable rooms.
As of May 2008 - rooms rates range from PHP600 (USD10-15) to PHP1200 (USD20-25) for 12 hours. You get a hundred off if you stay for 24 hours. No check in time. Time meter will start at anytime you checked in.

Friendly staffs. They have a restaurant and videoke at the lobby. Good food for reasonable prices but you can bring your own food inside or have it delivered.

Spacious rooms. Homey ambience.
Good place for families and friends.
Often has a birthday/wedding party celebration at the lobby.

No advance reservations. First come first serve.
Is usually fully booked on weekends and holidays.

One ride to SM Megamall, Shangrila Mall. Ortigas and Pasig Area.

Roman Suites: Makati's small hotel

I used to stay here for overnight just before my early morning flight...its convenient and affordable, right smack in the middle of Makati I used to run errands, always on a rush, last minute shopping and meetings. This way, I save gasoline, no problem parking, I can finish my meetings and not harrassed before I fly. I just damp all my things in the hotel and do what I have to do. Wake up early and take a taxi outside the hotel to the airport. Try it!

To update Roman Suites already closed and was bought by another hotel....still trying to get the name and contacts.

The bathrooms are clean which is very important for me and the location is perfect. 15mins w/o traffic to the intl and domestic airports!

Rennaissance: Makati just around the block

It was not part of the plan but no regrets coz I enjoyed my stay alone in the hotel. I would recommend it to tourists who are in Manila for business/pleasure. As long as it fits your budget, try it!

I spent most of my day at the poolside with my I-pod and a book. The poolside is nice and they have a grill resto around the corner so you dont have to go outside the hotel plus they offer different kind of drinks w/ or w/o alcohol.

Lemuria Inn: Oasis in the city

Lemuria was an ancient civilization which existed prior to and during the time of Atlantis. At its peak of civilization, the Lemurian people were both highly evolved and very spiritual. Staying in this hideaway in the heart of Pasay bridges the time between that ancient society and today.

A virtual landmark for artists and musicians, many a boheme have stayed here, played music, pounded drums, painted stories, cooked fantastic meals, danced with abandon, and shared their lives.

Lemuria Inn is located in Pasay City, just a few minutes away from the Domestic and International airports, and sits in a friendly, pre-war and tree laden compound 10 minutes away from the major southbound and northbound bus terminals and 5 minutes away from the Metro Rail and Light Rail Transit.

Renaissance Makati City Hotel (Part 2)

Personally, I enjoyed my stay at the Renaissance Makati City Hotel and would recommend to anyone who wants to stay at a good hotel in the Makati area. I paid about US$105 (excluding taxes) per night because I attended a meeting at the hotel.

Another thing you need to take note is that the security guards are rather strict about taking photos of the hotel lobby. They will allow you to take if you are inside the photo, but you cannot take photos without anyone in it (I managed to take a few photos before the security approach me).

Renaissance Makati City Hotel (Part 1)

The Renaissance Makati City Hotel is a very good 5-star hotel located at the heart of the Makati shopping area. In fact, the Greenbelts shopping area is just next to the hotel, and the big Glorietta shopping complex and Landmark shopping centre are just across the road. The Ayala Museum is also very near.

The rooms are very cosy and the upper floors have great views of the skycrapers of the Makati area. The breakfast is great with lots of variety, including the smoked salmon (and other smoked fishes) which are very delicious. Most important of all, the staff of this hotel are very courteous and helpful. They will make it a point to greet you when they see you, and are extremely helpful.

The only downside with hotels in the Makati area is that security is very tight. Whenever you enter the hotel main door, they need to scan you and your belongings. Please go to part 2 of this tip.

Tower Inn: The best location

The rooms here weren't as spacious as Hotel Kimberly in Malate, the breakfast wasn't quite as nice, the showers weren't always hot and it was a little more expensive BUT the location here is fantastic. It's a 2 minute walk to Glorietta Mall and across the street from Greenbelt so shopping/restaurants/bars/banks are literally right on your doorstep!

There aren't many hotels in this price range in this location.

Hotel Kimberly: In the heart of Malate

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Kimberly. The service was good, the rooms were clean and spacious and the breakfast was plentiful. We had aircon, hotshowers and it was quiet. What more can you ask for your first 2 nights in Manila?!

The location is particularly good, 2 minutes from Robinsons Place and plenty of bars and restaurants are nearby.

Joy Hotel: Comfort and Affordable Experience

We wanted to go to Wonder Island and hot springs in Pansol, Laguna. We stayed in Joy Hotel in Calamba City since the Wonder Island has a one day reservation. The stay at the hotel was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and the rooms are clean. The price was very affordable at $20 a night.

The hotel is very accessible. You can walk to a Jollibee fast food chain and ride a jeep for 8 minutes and to go Walter Mart McDonald. You can also ride a jeep for 7 minutes southwards to eat at DingHao (chinese cuisine) and Tia Eli (noted for its lechon).

Astoria Hotel: Comfortable Service Apartment

Since I was unable to get a room at the conference hotel, I was assigned to Astoria Hotel, which is a service apartment. Besides cheaper than the conference hotel, the apartment is very spacious (for one person) and very comfortable. The staff were helpful in arranging the hotel shuttle to send me to the conference hotel and to get taxis whenever required.

Breakfast is included in the room rate.

As a satisfied customer, this is highly recommended.

As I did not make use of the amenities, I am unable to comment on this.

Vivere Suites: mid way between airport and Makati

I was on business trip staying in Makati but had a short notice change in my plans and could not stay in Makati. However, 20' drive from Makati and 15' away from the airport, I found the Vivere Suites hotel, cheaper and very nice for its top class room comfort, its SPA and it very scenic pool/restaurant located at the top of the hotel.

Diamond Hotel Manila: My Wedding Venue

Diamond Hotel served as our Wedding Venue and Reception last October 2006. I personally chose this hotel because of its great food and its picturesque grand staircase =)

I had buffet lunch and dinner couple of times at their palm court resto and it has never been a disappointment.

The view of the Manila Bay is really amazing and to add the famous Manila Bay sunset.

Their room and service are good. the room designs may not be as modern and lvish compared to Hyatt Casino still this 5 star hotel was able to maintain its title as one of the best hotels in Manila.
