Staying here with a mate who has stayed here many times before. Basic rooms, very very clean very safe as well. Great location for Manila Bar staff are amazingly friendly. If your looking for a basic room at a great price this is perfect, not 5* but 5* service.

blah blah blah "legendary Yorkshire delicacy of mushy peas" blah blah blah... What actually arrives on your plate is Bird's Eye frozen peas... Really hate these "ex-pat" bars that offer you all t'comforts of 'ome and then carelessly serve up a rubbish local expertise

We are truly sorry to hear about your experience and your comment comes as a surprise and we hope you addressed it with the staff right away as Howzat has a very qualified kitchen with few complaints. If you truly do hate expat bars maybe Howzat is not for you. More

For the price you pay there are far better places available. Room worse than average and I have stayed in many worse than average rooms and this is the worst. Difficult to get a taxi from. Just avoid at all cost and go elsewhere. You will thank me for it, trust me.

The accommodation that I recommend to my friends, just near to any important places in Makati expecially Rockwell Center and Ayala,near the bars if you wanna hang out as its just steps away from Burgos St.The cleanliness and silence inside the room is priceless PLUS the amenities inside each room which is already great for the cheap price you pay...

NIce place to stay. Staff very helpful and friendly. Pub is down stairs and has lots of sports TV. The location is a short walk to Makati night life. Shopping centres are a short taxi ride away and the proximity to most of the Business heart of Makati is again a short taxi ride away.

I found this place by walking along Kalayaan St (One block from the infamous Burgos St). Took a photo of their price banner and booked online. The price and location are the main reasons for staying in this Inn but I did find it clean and acceptable. It's quite small and I had to leave before I intended because I... More

Eat and Drink here in the Popular Ex Pats Bar frequently, the food in the bar is excellent and the service is good, however there is a no smoking rule in most of the bars in Makati, a smoking area is normally provided. However Howzat is the exception to the rule by putting the non smoking area in a small... More
