    Value for money in Manila


    This is a fantastic hotel for location in Ermita area. The hotel is huge but service is very good and nice and clean. Breakfast spread is excellent.

    Best attraction is the pubs - all walking distance and you can come back to the hotel walking at any hour of the night -quite safe. My choice is G point / Southern cross/ Slouch Hat. I heard LA cafe is great but never had time. Beer is cheap and they serve good food too. Slouch Hut boasts of internet connection - so you can sip your beer while you surf and chat and email.People are so friendly and nice. Road side sales of fruits and snacks plenty and cheap. You got to buy them during the day.
    I booked on internet and had no hassles. The duty managers are most helpful so are the bell boys. You can get the bell boy to give you all the newspapers you want to read though sad to say i found mostly english papers are the tabloid variety. Manila times is good but print is so bad.

    Unique Quality: Main attraction is location. All your odd shopping you can do in Robinson Mall v close by. Plenty of eating joints. ATMs Money changers no problem.If you step out you can get cabs or the local transport of any range. The sea front and the boulevard is hardly a kilometre away.

    Due to rain i couldnt enjoy the Rizal Park so close by. I did manage a few trips towards the end and found the park so well laid out and beautiful. If you like hot and sultry climate this is best.

    Intramuros is walking distance so to speak though on a hot day a horse cart ride or a bicycle ride is best.

    Directions: You cant miss - is too well known

    Money's worth


    I would recommend this to anyone - is located great. Shopping mall, restaurants, proximate to central business district ie Ermita, The hotel has a casino not that i used it ! Just across the road is a massage centre called INCENSE which gives full body massage one hour for just 500 peso. You can add a tip as i did. The women work so hard and deserve it.
    For shopping you got Robinson Mall just a 300 metres to your right.
    Rizal park the prime location is nearby walking distance
    Rooms are good clean and well serviced and staff extremely nice

    Unique Quality: Great views - very good location

    Directions: it is a 30 mt ride from airport terminal one. If you book cab from hotel will cost you 1100 peso but a metred cab shows around 160 peso

    Newly Refurbished


    New Management, Newly Refurbished. Since 2006, the Manila Pavilion Hotel is under the Management of the Waterfront Group of Hotels. The hotel is historic and also strategic. It is histtoric since it was one of the oldest hotels in Manila and strategic since it is near the tourist attractions like Luneta Park, Intramuros, Quiapo, Rizal Park. The Manila Pavilion Casino was also renovated from the then smoke filled, crowded 2 floor area to a 3 floor modern and spacious area offering lots of entertainment.

    Unique Quality: Besides the Casino (Gambler heaven!), nearby Seasons Cafe serves eastern and western cuisine Buffets for you to feast on especially after a win on the Casino!. Guests can also relish sumptuous Continental cuisine like Prime Rib Steak and Chateaubriand Steak and Steak Tartare (hey I'm a steak man see!) in an elegant setting of the Rotisserie Restaurant. The Boulvar offers a diverse range of local and international dishes, which includes appetizers, desserts, beverages and cocktails for you to enjoy. The expensive Chinese Peony Garden at the second floor also offer elegant chinese specialties. Pavilion has 549 rooms all with mini-ref, mini bar, cable tv and broadband internet connection.

    Directions: United Nations Ave, Corner Maria Orosa Street, Manila, 1000, Philippines

    Not so bad...


    Staff service was average. Be prepared to wait for about 20 minutes to be given attention, especially in the morning! It was not that bad when we checked in (it was about 1 am), it took about 15 minutes to sort out our reservation. But they did help us with our luggage.

    Our room was more than enough for two people, it was clean, however, the carpet and bed cover needed replacing. We had cable channels on telly so that was good. Bathroom was okay, not that huge but good enough. The view from our room was not splendid, we could see the pool below and the offices on the other side of the road and that's about it.

    On our first night, we found out that we didn't have any towels, so we requested a couple and after half an hour they gave us our towels. We also had a problem with our telly and they sorted that out for us, after about two phone calls.

    They've got a locker where you can leave all your important stuff but sometimes you have to prepare to wait to access it as there are a number of guests who use it.
    They also have an internet station, but the connection was not that fast. It's only open during office hours though.
    Their pool is not massive but clean. They have some sort of a cafe there but for some reason, I think it was close so we were not able to order anything.

    We didn't try their restaurant, bar and casino, as we preferred to eat out and check the scene in Bay Walk and Malate area. They have live entertainment though, in their bar, during the night.

    The hotel is about 5 minute walk to Robinsons Mall so that's handy. It is also close to a number of fast food chains so there's no problem in getting any food. It was easy to get a taxi and the staff on the lobby will help you in flagging one.

    If asked if I would stay again, I probably wouldn't. It was okay that we tried it out for three nights. We didn't have any bad experience but I was not impressed with the service and facilities, at all.

Hotel walking distance from Luneta Grandstand

by atebing

Here's another question ...

What's the closest hotel to the Luneta Grandstand? Preferably someplace that's walking distance. We're set to attend the CFC 25th Anniversary there and didn't want to drive down that morning since we want to avoid the traffic.

Again many thanks :-)

Manila Hotel, the grand old luxury that it still is! Ever!

On the opposite side (but just about the same walking distance to the grandstand is the Manila Pavillion Hotel. Also fine, just less luxurious than the former but near a lot of establishments.

Anything else is either far to walk from or of a lesser kind than the those above.

Enjoy your stay!

Bayview Park Hotel is also close to the grandstand. It is across the street from the US Embassy.

there's a hotel near Chowking/HOT! restaurant. Hotel Mirabella i think. Also, for a short block of luneta, you might want to consider Holiday Inn Manila Pavillo and Corporate Inn along UN/Kalaw

RE: Hotel walking distance from Luneta Grandstand

by ManilaMan

depends on what you mean by walking distance

taxi would be no more than a buck or 2 dollars at the most anyway to anywhere in ermita or malate

you would prob not want to stay in the area bordering luneta park anyway, a bit seedy

I would stay at City Garden, Cherry Blossums, both very close to that area, I have stayed in both of them, each very reasonable, I think Cherry blossums is 30 dollars, city garden is 40 dollars

Best Western La Corona is about 35 , not as nice as city garden but still a comfortable safe roomy room.

Also Executive Plaza is right there in that neighborhood, always gets glowing reviews, very reasonable

do not stay at Bayview, its old run down, not well maintained, do not stay at city state towers, or any of the mansion properties, mabini mansion, boulevard mansion etc, too run down

by cHeLLe28


i have stayed in lotus garden hotel in mabini area... the rooms with kitchenette wuz really great... but im not that sure if its within your "walking distance" categories... never really tried walking from there to the grandstand...

about bayview hotel... its definitely nearer than the previous one i mentioned... i've also stayed here and the room that we got was quite OK... but that was like 2 years ago... since somebody mentioned that it was old and run down... i just dont know if its that way already @ the present.
