I loved my overnight stay at this hotel. The rooms were bright, very clean and cozy. The beddings were comfortable, and the aircon worked very well. And for the P2,000 rate, definitely worth every penny! I almost regret having to stay only one night for a business trip. Love the staff's attention to details - they checked in my baggage... More

I've stayed at the Durban often when visiting from "the province" over the last five years. It's always a pleasure. With the prices of lodging in Makati getting close to the out of range, it's nice to still find an affordable place close to it ALL. If you're looking for high-rise: look elsewhere. If you're looking for pampered-luxury: forget it... More

Thanks to 42Leigh for such nice remarks. The review mentions a fact that often surprises many first-time travelers to Makati. By Makati City ordinance, indoor spaces are smoke-free. Our guests who wish to smoke can enjoy a pleasant visit to our terrace to enjoy the city and people walking by. While there may we suggest a cool drink, or one... More

17 years I have been travelling to Manila, and I have never come across any better choices, when deciding where to stay.
