As long as you know friends in...

As long as you know friends in the Philippines, staying in a hotel will not be necessary. Relatives and friends would always open their home to you. Don't forget to bring a nice 'pasalubong' (special gift), of course, as a sign of appreciation for their hospitality. But, if you're a total stranger, most of the hotels have 5-star quality and service...no need to worry. I can recommend hotels in the Makati area while staying in Manila (such as the Intercontinental Hotel or check out the Manila Peninsula or Manila Hotel which is close to the Luneta Park area. This is a classy place).

The hotels I have recommended continue to be a favourite among travellers to Metro Manila. .

Las Palmas Hotel: Leisure Hotel

Las Palmas is located near the entertainment district of manila- MALATE. Strips of bars, restaurants, clubs and stores...all gathered up here in malate.

Prices of these hotels are affordable but has no facilities like swimming pool or gym. Its location is in the center of leisure activities and very near the famous manila bay.

Mary's Cottages in Sabang. On...

Mary's Cottages in Sabang. On the island of Palawan. Very relaxed. I don't know if its even still there. When I went we had to just take a jeepney (kinda like a bus) across the island and just show up. They had no phone. Food was excellent, especially considering they cooked everything on a wood stove.

Very cheap, very unpretentious. Small bamboo houses on stilts. We did have private bathrooms though.

Holiday Inn Manila

On one of his visits to Manila, when tourists had cancelled en masse after Ninoy Aquino had been assassinated at the airport, old Cliffie walked into the Holiday Inn and asked the price of a room. The desk clerk smiled hopefully and quoted 95 dollars. Old Cliffie smiled knowingly and got the rate down to 30 dollars a night for three nights. Manila tends to be dusty, chaotic and hot. The Holiday Inn offers an air-conditioned haven of peace and quiet.

Leyte Park Hotel

Old Cliffie spent the first couple of days in Tacloban at the Leyte Park Hotel, a luxury establishment built in the 1970s by Imelda Marcos. Old Cliffie was the only guest apart from an American missionary family, relaxing from the rigour of an upcountry assignment, and a few Filipino fatcats, down from Manila to 'supervise' an upcoming election. The food was good, the pool was cool, and the San Miguel beer went down like nectar at the end of a long, hot day.

Baguio City is a tourist place...

Baguio City is a tourist place so accommodations are not a problem. You can find a number of three star hotels around which are priced around the PhP 1,000.00 ($25) range. Of course you could find accommodations that are lower priced but you sacrifice cleanliness and you could also find top of the line rates of Php 4,000.00 ($100.00) for the large suites.

The last 5 Star hotel (Hyatt Terraces) and the Pines Hotel were both damaged by calamities, one was the big 1991 earth quake and the latter a fire in late 1980's. A few startups have sprung up to satisfy the market for good accommodations and they are not too far behind getting good grades as far as ratings are concerned.
In Manila you will have no trouble finding the familiar hotel chains such as the Hyatt Regency, Holiday Inn, Sheraton, among others. If you have the bucks try out the Manila Hotel.

If you prefer to stay in...



If you prefer to stay in Makati City, lots of hotels can be chosen from. These are Shangri-La Makati, Dusit Hotel Nikko, Inter Continental Hotel and the Manila Peninsula.

These are situated near the Malls such as Makati Cinema Square, Glorietta, Landmark and Rustan.

The world doesn't look bad when your view is from a hammock. At Tina's you'll have your very own hammock, right outside your door on the veranda. Not even the rain will bother you...

The Manila Hotel in Ermita,...

The Manila Hotel in Ermita, near Rizal Park; Century Park and the Citadel in Makati, near many clubs.
The Manila is pretty high. I can't remember what I paid there the last time. The Makati hotels run about US$65-75 or more per night.

The Manila is the Grandaddy and Grande Dame of hotels, with lots of history. The others are nothing special, just that they are near shopping, businesses, and pretty wild night clubs.

Rothman Inn Hotel: Rothman Inn Hotel

Our double was about US $45 in 1997.

This is a comfortable but modest hotel handily located to transport but off the main drags, so it's not so noisy. Nice staff -- and they're honest! That alone makes the place worth staying in. AC, too.
