Though I would not recommend staying in Manila for long (2 days MAX) this is defiantly a good place to stay for young travellers that can't afford the luxury places. The bathrooms are newly renovated and the rooms are everything you need. The staff is also very friendly and helpful, and laundry service is great!!

We had a number of issues during our stay at Malate Pensionne, starting with actually getting there. While their website states that they offer airport transfers, this is only very loosely the truth. I emailed twice, once from the booking site I'd booked through, and once through their own website and received no answer. In the end we ended up... More

The location was very convenient - surrounded by a variety of decent restaurants and some (questionable) bars. You could also walk to the intramural area and it was easy & cheap when cabbing around town. Our standard room was very small and had an oscillating fan attached to the ceiling, but you couldn't keep it pointed at you - making... More

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
