I like houses with character and I read that this hotel used to be ancestral home and indeed the layout shows it. High ceiling, wooden floors, stairs and the rich mahogany colours. Basic but clean accommodation at reasonable rate all I need to rest to continue my journey the following day. Located at the heart of tourist area, I feel... More

An excellent budget place in Manila. We got our own double with ensuite bathroom. It was decent, simple, but a few small cockroaches. Other than that, the staff were super friendly (they even lent me money when I didn't have any small peso bills for the cab). There are a couple cheap bars close by as well and a free... More

Located in Malate area near the Malate Circle. Malate Pensionne has very basic facilities in the rooms. Some rooms has still an old box TV with cable box while other rooms has LCD TVs. Negative: - WIFI is only available on the ground floor. - Pillows are way too soft. - No douche spray in the bathrooom

So I have been staying with Malate Pensionne for the past years, since my college days in Iloilo actually and been staying here with friends and family so this is like a great capsule of memories for me. Last time I checked in however, I realized that this was not the same hotel I have used to love. The standards... More

My children and I stayed in their large bedroom for 2 weeks. We found the staff very accommodating and helpful. The place was very clean and up to date with enough hot water for showers. With the gate and security guard I was comfortable letting my children run around. The wifi was a nice bonus. The room we stayed in... More

Stayed for a night with my fiance. The premium room was okay for the price. It was a good stay until we realized that the receptionist forgot to give my fiance's card back upon check in. We did not notice that the card was gone until 2 days later. So we called the bank and asked when the last transaction... More

It is a good place for a short stay in Manila. It is near good restaurants, Robinson's place and it was easy to walk to Rizal Park and intramuros. The double room was quite basic. We shared the bathroom which was clean but had very (very!) small toilet cubicules and showers. The staff was nice and it is in the... More

This is best valued accommodations anyone can have (the feel of an "old" Filipino "converted rooming mansion", all that "antique" wood smell) very clean, comfortable & safe (just kinda put up with the low "water pressure".Professional & accommodating "English speaking" staff and if you are ready to tackle the "unique" surroundings that "evolves" around this "pensionne", then this your "home"...

The hotel isn't noisy, but the nightclubs around it sure are. On weekends, you won't get to sleep before 3AM. It's cheap and the service is decent, but the rooms DO NOT have a small fridge in them. If you want a cold drink, you'll have to go out every time you want one. The in-hotel restaurant is VERY slow... More

Stayed here for a few days recently and would stay again as it was safe (inside no theft), clean, quiet-ish, well priced for central Malate/Manila, a good location for the sites though not always safe to walk around at night (but that could be said of most cities), was welcoming with a nice lady manager, has the internet, safety lockers...
