After seeing the fantastic and comprehensive review by J_David_E I can only agree wholeheartedly. Most of the points I was going to include (and more) have already been covered! Hence I fully concur with those comments and add my own humble thoughts below: The hotel was in an ideal location just off Makati Avenue in the business district for me... More

During February 2014, our family stayed 14 days at the Durban Hotel, occupying four rooms: three street-side second floor, and a fourth on the fourth floor. The boutique hotel has 43 rooms on four floors, located in the Burgos entertainment district, which is convenient to all of Makati and Manila. The hotel is very well appointed with art pictures and... More

A very belated thank-you to the reviewer for this most generous and comprehensive review. We're so glad that we were able to make his stay as comfortable, restful, and wonderful as it turned out. We look forward to hosting him and his family again in a future - hopefully not too distant. In the meantime, safe travels. More

A couple of friends and I were planning to hangout and play poker inside one of their (P2,500-worth) suites which is large enough to fit us without the need to use the bed, but suddenly we were requested to present our IDs. We were also prevented by the front desk to go to the room since they said that their... More

We are sorry for FredV51387's experience at our hotel. Like all hotels in city, we have established protocols that ensure the safety of all our guests and their visitors. This is why we check and accept only government-issued identification, such as passports and drivers' licenses. We do this so we can monitor who is in the hotel at any given... More

I didn't stay here but booked my family from the US here that were on their annual holiday. They were 3 groups in all that arrived on the same dates but had different return reservations.

It's safe secure and clean, management is the best. The staff are courteous and responsive to their guests. They really care if you are happy. I will deffinetly keep them on the top of my list. It is also located in proximity to many resturants with a wide range of cuisine. It's important I felt safe here

We're very glad that CiriacTtrading felt safe and secure at our hotel and commended our management, who work tirelessly to ensure that all our guests are made welcome and comfortable.

My dad and I checked in the hotel on February 12 and left on the 16th. We stayed in Room 304 which was on the 3rd floor. There are no elevators but walking up the flight of stairs wasn't so tiring.

This 42 room chic hotel could be described (without any insult intended) as a 'pooer man's version' of the trendy Cocoon Boutique Hotel in Quezon City, Metro Manila that is ranked so highly on TA. Hotel Durban is next to City Garden Hotel and Suites in Makati Avenue and hence easy to find for taxi and private drivers. It is... More

I can say that the whole place is not that big but it's comfortable enough. The room we stayed at was for two but we had an additional bed for another person. The room itself was not that big, so there was some difficulty moving around and it got worse when the additional bed was placed. The right side of... More
