If you travel on a tight budget but still do not want to compromise cleanliness and good service Hotel Durban is the perfect place to stay.

We arrived in Manila during the height of the typhoon season (August 2012) so needless to say we stayed in a hotel near the airport since the streets to Manila were impassable. We transferred to the Hotel Durban the following day and stayed 2 nights. I found this hotel on line with the help of my concerned family back in... More

We thank TheHappyRetiree for the kind review.

We thank Antoine D for his gracious review and are glad he enjoys our rooms and service. While our suites are, indeed, the largest rooms in the house, we try to make even our smallest rooms as cozy as possible. As part of our planned upgrades for 2013, we will continue addressing the lighting issues throughout the hotel. Some of... More

The reviews in this hotel is a testament that you cannot please everyone. It is a small hotel compared to its counterparts in the area but for 1350, 1550 and so on..in MAKATI, it is the best value.

On our first trip, by accident left 40000 pesos in the room, upon returning, the money had been found and was waiting at the front desk. Honesty goes a long way in my book.

We thank MrColin2012 for his kind review. At Hotel Durban, we take pride in the honesty and integrity of our staff. Nevertheless, as part of our planned upgrades for 2013, we will be installing in-room safes with a digital lock to boost our already robust security. We look forward to hosting MrColin2012 again during his next visit to Manila. More

For that rates there is nothing to complain about. It is in the center of nightlife, (well 1 minute walk). I would not recommend it for business trips, but for a few nights as a night-owl it is great. Rooms are simple with small ref. My aircon was a bit loud, but nothing a SMB could not fix. If it...

For P1,550 a night, the room is tiny, but clean. And it is in Makati City where all living spaces are expensive. The pillows were fluffy, as compared to some budget hotels, it is nice. The hot water is negligible but passable. Sometimes there are noises outside. The ambiance is more of a small condominium rather than a hotel. There... More

We are very sorry for Binx A’s recent experience at our hotel. Like any good hotel, we try to fulfill all room requests. Generally, we ask guests to give us 24-hours to accommodate their inquiries; this is stated on our reservations web-page.
