This is my fourth stay at the Clipper. Still great value for money given the popular tourist location and convenience. Restaurants, bars, convenience stores, shopping malls etc. All close by. The staff are very helpful and attentive, just have to ask. Free wifi and desktop computer in lobby for internet use. Very clean and safe, safe boxes in the rooms... More

I took my Mom for her first Philippines adventure and stayed at the Clipper on the advice of several good friends. We started off in the one-person sleepers - rudimentary, but neat, compact and bursting with Pan Am-themed style! - before graduating to the larger rooms on the third floor. The staff were beyond helpful, the pre-War decor and general... More

Clean, comforable, stylish, attentive and friendly staff. Lots of nice restaurants around, Just a few minutes away from Makati's main shopping and entertainment zones, plus short walking distance to Rockwell Power Plant mall. Ask the reception to book you the best messeuse in their roster - it's one of their best kept secrets!

Simple rooms, clean. Outdated tv. Good AC. Good showers. Service is good. Room service and restaurant mostly closed with different excuses. When open... food was 3/5. Service excellent. Ovrall 4/5. Just need to make room service work and improve the rooms more up to date lightingban tv's. Wifi also intermittent but 3/5 on wifi overall.

We stayed here 2 nights in late December and were very happy with the hotel. Staff very helpful, room was spacious and clean and the hotel is within a stone's throw of bars and restaurants. Only real downside is the street noise. In the end earplugs meant this wasn't too bad an issue.

This hotel was an outstanding value in metro Manila. The art deco Pan American Clipper design gave it a great atmosphere among other larger and smaller hotels in Makati. The location was central to everything, the staff particularly Erwin and Sarah went out of their way to make the visit pleasant. With only about a dozen rooms it was peaceful... More

I had really high hopes based on the reviews - TripAdvisor has never let me down! And I'm not a particularly picky traveler - a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom, and good wifi is all I really want. To its credit, Clipper has those three things. My issue though is the noise - even at 10pm the street traffic was... More

We stayed 3 nights - room a good size, clean with a good shower. Reasonably priced for Makati - staff friendly and helpful esp Judy No breakfast but many places nearby inc 7/11. Yes the area was buzzing (people wise!) at night but it all seemed safe and friendly Will stay again

Came back yesterday. Not really my favourite hotel because it was not near to any malls or any descent chill coffee break places. Nah, if you were me, you found the very wrong place to stay. It was too crowded at night because surrounded by bars and there was a junction which lots of cars every time. You bet I... More
