This is a lovely boutique hotel near the central business district. Given its location this is not a hotel for family with small kids. I am not happy with service as they took a lot of time with regards to room service. It also took them quite sometime before where were properly settled in our room. The rooms are clean... More

Thank you for staying at Durban again. We have stayed now for 6 nights. But previously we have stayed for nearly ten times during the last 7 years. We like the closeness to Makati but the main reason for coming back is the very nice staff at Durban. I have stayed at hundreds of hotels all over the world but... More

There are so many hotels in Makati that are too overrated and pricey yet you don't feel the essence of "a home away from home". Hotel Durban, however, is different, it made me feel my home! During my first business trip to Makati, I stayed at a random hotel near the area where Hotel Durban is. Not naming the hotel,... More

If you're looking for a budget-priced hotel in the heart of the entertainment section of Makati, look no further! Hotel Duran is the place to be! This marks my 3rd time staying at Hotel Durban and I am more impressed after each visit. The new and improved cafe is awesome! They serve a decent Western-style breakfast and an equally amazing...

The hotel is furnished with antiques from the owner's collection, as well as pieces of her own design. Our rooms adhere to exacting standards of cleanliness and have many of the amenities expected of a modern hotel, including air-conditioning; flat- screen, cable TV, and complimentary, wireless broadband. Our café serves a choice selection of hot and cold beverages, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. ... more   less
