    Ermita Accomodation


    This is a new hotel which has only been open for a short while.All furnishings are new including flat screen televisions on walls and a modern aircon.Prices are
    Family Room 2500 ph
    Suite Room 2599 ph
    Deluxe Room1999 ph
    Superior Room1500 ph
    Easy bed 799ph
    On my first visit i stayed in the "easy bed room".This is a tiny room with no window and only enough room to stand up.It has a single bed,tv. aircon and small table.I was happy for the price i paid as this was a very inexpensive room in a hotel in the centre of the nightlife area.On my 2nd visit i stayed in the standard room which also was decent.There are few services with this hotel although they have internet in the lobby and a cafe on the 7th floor that also has live music.I asked one of the attendants about a laundry and he was able to take it to a local place for a few peso's.

    Directions: Across from Calle 5 Food court

Budget is between 7k to 10k.

Re: Furnished room for rent Malate/Makati.

by SirHalberd

When you say "rent" a room - do you mean you want a hotel recommendation or are you looking for a serviced apartment? There are lots of hotels available in the Manila area.

Are you talking about around 5 weeks and you only want to pay a maximum of 10,000 pesos total for that 5 weeks? Plus you want a room with private toilet too - right?

How many days total in your holiday trip? How much per day do you want to spend on a room?

You might get this price in a hostel sharing a bunk in a dorm-like some of the links below:

Maybe I am reading your post wrong, if so - sorry!

Re: Furnished room for rent Malate/Makati.

by SirHalberd

If the two of you means 2 women I have the address and telephone number of a "safe" place for women only in the Ermita area if you are interested. This place I am thinking about is a lady's dorm real close to the Robinson Mall on Padre Faura. Google up "ladies dormitory Manila" and you get some samples.

Good luck.

Thank you for your reply SirHalberd. :)

You have read my inquiry correctly. I have checked the sites you recommended and we might go with Friendly's. :)

Travel Tips for Manila

Manila has a few sites to...

by dutch-tulips

Manila has a few sites to visit, some must sees are Luneta Park, Fort Santiago, and Manila Bay. The Philippines was under Spanish rule for 500 years and then after the Spanish/American war, was under the US. So there are lots of old churches and historic places to visit and a lot of newer ones too. A lot of things have changed from my last visit here. I almost didn't recognize it. Nothing looked familiar anymore. So to me it was like seeing Manila for the first time again.

The Spanish

by mlt_t

The Spanish, who replaced the wooden buildings with stone, rebuilt the original Chinese settlement on this site as a fort in 1590. Gradually the area was expanded until it became a walled city containing 15 churches and six monasteries. The walls are 3km (1.8mi) long and 6m (20ft) high, and are about all that remains after WWII finished off what General Douglas MacArthur had started. MacArthur used Intramuros as his base, tearing down old buildings and widening the roads.

Unconventional Bass Player

by AlbuqRay

The Philippine people love music and singing. Videoke is very popular. There was free entertainment at the festival inside Intramuros. I not sure everyone in the Philippines plays the bass like this though. He is not standing on a chair behind the bass but on the instrument itself! It is pretty impressive to be able to play while balancing like that.

Kakanin-Native Rice Cakes

by machomikemd

Assorted Kakanin or native cakes.

In the Philippines, glutinous rice is known as malagkit (literally "sticky" in Tagalog), glutinous rice flour is known as galapong. The rice grains are treated with a solution of lye and then dried, then the grains are poured into a banana leaf cone or cocount leaf wrapper and steamed. It may be mixed with sugar, coconut milk, or other grains such as millet. Glutinous rice cooked in coconut leaf or banana leaves wrappers are steamed to produce "suman," of which there are many varieties depending on the region. Some of the common toppings are "bukayo", grated mature coconut cooked in sugar, coconut jam, and freshly grated coconut. Some regions eat suman as a snack with ripe mangoes or bananas.

A general term for sweet rice cake, "bibingka" mainly consists of glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk. Another traditional Filipino snack very similar to Japanese mochi is called "palitao."
Puto alone boggles the mind with its variety. It comes in all shapes—small round, big round, huge round, square, oval, tube, etc. Some puto are called by the place where they are made, among them Marilao, Biñan and Manapla. Suman is another general name for a kind of kakanin, more elongated in shape and wrapped in an assortment of leaves. All over the country, suman sa ibos is known by that name. It is made of steamed glutinous rice, wrapped in strips of nipa leaves that turn yellowish in color when cooked. Sapin sapin, bibingka, kalamay, biko, espasol, Bud Bud, Latik, Maja Blanca and a lot more!

Filipinos have a Sweet Tooth that is why there is a dizzying variety of sweet ricke cakes. you can but them anywhere in Manila specially at the food courts of department stores and supermarket. Price starts from
