We stayed at the Hotel Durban for a couple of nights in early September and it was great. The hotel itself is very tidy and the staff were very accommodating and there is plenty going on in the area. They do require cash payment on check in but this isn’t a problem as there are a lot of ATM’s nearby.... More

First time to check in at Hotel Durban. Very accommodating staff. Our room is a bit small but it was okay. Wifi is good because Im using my phone. Hehe. We slept comfortably. Food is a bit pricey. A cab away from Glorietta, Greenbelt or SM. 7eleven is just a 5minute walk or less. We enjoyed our overnight stay. :)

Stayed here for a total of 3 nights when i went to Manila for vacation last month. It's a simple yet it has its distinct flair, and most of all very clean and the staff are very hospitable. The only thing which i think it will not harm the hotel is their reservation part, i have given my specifics on... More

I returned to Hotel Durban this month. Normally when I am in Manila I stay in the fancier hotels, but this time I was with a group of colleagues that did not want to spend the money. I really can't believe how good a deal this place is. It's only a couple blocks from the central business district. The staff... More

Just perfect. Dont mind its being near to the red light area. Thank you for making my stay a pleasant... More

We stayed in this hotel since we have an early morning appointment in makati. This is small but very clean hotel is located just behind the city garden hotel. I picked this because of the excellent reviews from trip advisor. The room was very clean and the rest room was spotlessly clean as well. For the price i have to... More

My family & I truly enjoyed our stay in Durban Hotel. Staff are utmost friendly. We chose the best room in the house - Business Suite w/windows on the 4th floor and it was excellent! We had the privacy we needed, comfort, especially the convenience of walking around Makati CBD anytime we want as Hotel Durban is just situated at... More

Thank you to caryl_dwight and her family for the kind review. We’re happy they had a wonderful and restful stay at our hotel and enjoyed its safe and central location. We’re currently working on a few upgrades – some of them a little noisier than others, unfortunately – but it’s all in the service of making the Hotel Durban experience... More

We’d like to thank German O for taking the time to write his kind review. First, we’d like to apologize for the reservation mix-up. This rarely happens, and we have addressed the issue internally to ensure it does not happen again. Nevertheless, we are happy that our front desk was able to satisfactorily resolve the situation at the time. Our... More

So after spending most of my time in Manila in various 5 star hotels, I decided to listen to my fellow tripadvisorians and go for a well recommended but cheap hotel. What if I could find a hotel that offered what I needed for 50 dollars rather than 200? So much better and Hotel Durban comes very highly recommended. So... More

We’d like to that J_A_1974 for his contribution. We at Hotel Durban are thrilled with the attention that being No.5 in Makati brings us. It is exciting to meet so many new friends and guests who would not have found us before. While it’s exciting as well to be ranked in the company of so many international five-star hotels, we...

We stayed at Room 302, a junior suite. The room looked, smelled and felt clean. It was a non-smoking room and had no smell of cigarette which I appreciate so much. The mattress was firm which is good for the back and I was at peace with the cleanliness of the sheets and the comforter, which had no strong chemical... More
