Guest Friendly Hotels Manila
UPDATED November 2022
Manila is the capital city of Philippines as well as the second largest city of the country located on the eastern shore of Manila Bay. While there are sixteen districts in Manila, they are two main areas of Manila known for it’s bargirl and freelance action: The Ermita & Malate district and Makati.
The Ermita & Malate district is the biggest concentration and oldest. You can find loads of freelancers in one of the many lively bars along M.H.Del Pilar and Mabini street such as L.A. Café (now called Manila Bay Cafe), G-spot or Amazonia.
The second, Makati, is located in the more upscale business district, only a short cab ride away from The Ermita & Malate district, around Burgos Street, known to have the best looking entertainers and bikini bars of Manila.

Guest Friendly Hotels in Makati
112 LPL Tower, Legaspi Street, Makati, Manila, Philippines 1229
Location : LPL Suites is a budget hotel in this prime location just opposite to Greenbelt 5, where the neighborhood is safe and clean. So no need a taxi or a driver to get around anywhere in Makati from here. For a budget accommodation in a prime location this is exceptional value for money.

1440 Roxas Boulevard, Ermita, Manila, Philippines
Location : The Boulevard Mansion Hotel is one of my favourite hotels in Ermita as it is very guest friendly and a great location too, just minutes from the Manila Bay Cafe, formerly known as the L.A. Cafe which is the biggest venue for Phillipino freelancers and is open twnety four hours a day. The studios at the hotel are budget apartments but extremely well equipped with a kitchenette that includes cooking wares to dining crockery and cutlery, a small dining area, corner sofa, TV with great selection of English channels, free WiFi which is fast and always works really well and comfortable beds. The are rooms are old and a little tired in appearance but there is a certain charm that has me coming back again and again. Dependent on where your room is located you will be able to see the girls from L.A. Cafe on the second floor up!

5011 P. Burgos Corner Canceres Sts, Makati, Manila, Philippines
Location : The Makati Palace Hotel could not be better located just on the corner of Burgos street and the girle bars, everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. The room I had was spacious with amazing views over Manila, the king size bed was very comfortable and I found that I slept really well despite the heavy traffic noise. The mini bar was extremely expensive however there is the added bonus of a 7-eleven on the corner so you can get everything you might want there at a fraction of the price. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for cheap accommodation, prime location.

Location : The Oxford Suites set in the centre of Makati night life is definitely not for families as it is on the corner of Burgos Street with its go-go bars and all the other goings on.

No in room safe but everything else that you would expect. The staff are very helpful. For location this hotel cannot be better. TIP: Try to get a room higher up to avoid street noise.

Esperanza Street corner Makati Avenue, Ayala Center, Makati, Manila, Philippines 1228
Location : The New World Makati City is just next to Greenbelt in the Makati district in a very secure area where you can be sure not to get bothered. The hotel was perfect from the super comfortable beds to the softest of pillows and everything you could possibly need provided in the room. Great views over the business district from the room. The hotel also offers a great swimming pool and a number of bars and restaurants to choose from and the added extra of spa services. The only disappointment was that there was no WiFi or internet connection and the bath was a little small to use if you are quite tall but this wasn’t really a worry. Lovely stay close to the action.

Spotlessy clean with everything working as one would expect in a five star hotel. The service is as expected in a five star hotel and the highlight is breakfast which is simply outstanding, and a lovely way to wake up.

Guest Friendly Hotels in Ermita & Malate
620 Pablo Ocampo Sr. Street , Malate, Manila, Philippines 2004
Location : The Swagman Hotel is not the Ritz but certainly a good economy style hotel. Room are correct and come with all the basic amenities. A good option for first time visitors as they offer a free pick up and transfer to the airport and bush shuttles to other areas of the country such as Angeles, Subic bay, Puerto Galera, etc.

1630 A. Mabini Street , Malate, Manila, Philippines 1000
Location : The Executive Plaza Hotel has a good location with Robinson’s Mall just two clocks away, the world-famous LA Cafe (renamed Manila Bay Cafe these days) three blocks away and the Bay a simple four block walk. The Hyatt with the big casino is also just across the street if this is your thing. The hotel is not fancy and you won’t get Vegas style opulence or a great array of amenities, however if you are looking for a well looked after hotel with spacious rooms, excellent service from uniformed staff and a safe enviroment then this is the right choice.

1616 A. Mabini Str., Malate, Manila, Philippines 1004
Location : The Las Palmas hotel is set right in the heart of Malate and just a few minutes walk from the night time offerings. The cheaper rooms are compact but reasonably priced with comfortable beds, TV with lots of English channels and fully functioning air conditioning. The bathroom is spotlessly clean with a powerful shower which has plenty of hot water. The only downside to this hotel is that the internet is very expensive, all in all though a good choice with a very good security policy.

Location : The Riviera Mansion Hotel I picked from the reviews of other travellers on Tripadvisor is situated just a couple of minutes from the LA Cafe (now called Manila Bay Cafe) and a couple of dollars taxi ride to Makati, Mall of Asia or Greenbelt.

The air conditioning worked perfectly if a little noisy at times when left on the high setting.

Location : The Pan Pacific in Manila offers good value compared to the other five star hotels available in the area. The check in is fast and there are welcoming drinks on arrival during this time. The standard room is well located with a great view of the Manila Bay. The bathroom was also spacious with a sliding window that seperates the bath (with its own TV!) from the bedroom. The king sized bed was super comfortable bed perfect to relax into with pristine cotton sheets and down feathered pillows. Complimentary internet access and a huge LCD TV. The pool area offers a quiet place to relax with plenty of chairs for soaking up the sun.
