“IMHO there's only 1 way to eat curry.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013


There's only 1 way to eat traditional western curry, that's with a group of friends! Reason: if there's 6 of you can order up to 6 different dishes and have a bit of everything that's on offer. Well I've found a curry heaven. The wife and I are sitting here right now. Jut the 2 of us and we have many varieties of curry on our plate because its a buffet. Probably the best value you could ever hope for at 425 peso for all you can eat and all you can drink local beers from 1200-1500 every Friday and Saturday. I won't bore with the details on the curry accept to say I you like the stuff served up in British, Australian, NZ etc, ie western curry then your going to like this too much.

Well back to the drinking and the All Blacks taking on Australia in an hours time. I'll be able to watch the game of 1 of the 10 tv's around the room!

Highly recommend this establishment to all in sundry.

Its reasonably priced, the rooms were old students quarters re-furbished I think smallish rooms, the room was clean tidy the shower water was hot thanks to the zip heater on the wall, aircon good, bed linen etc very good.
The downstairs bar and diner was a great place to stop after the day, good food and cold beer, its close to Makati night club strip etc.
Good restaurants can be found all around within a block or 2 and even a very good barber
I was very happy with the staff, services and amenities, its not a 5 star hotel but a very well run establishment and would stay there again

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Recently stayed here for two weeks. The room is basic, cheap but comfortable. The only complaint I had was the noise of the traffic starting at 6am, but not a lot the hotel can do about that. My room was on the 1st floor and road side, possibly the inner rooms would have been quieter. The bathroom is small but an electric shower supplies enough hot water and sufficient pressure to have a good wash. The room is equipped with a microwave, kettle and fridge. With a decent mini bar also. Downstairs and around the corner (less than a minute walking) is the Howzatt bar. Mostly populated by expats, a must place for any sports enthusiast. The staff are all local girls, all with a smile and very helpful, also very apologetic when your choice from the menu is not available. The menu is varied including dishes from around the world and pricing to suit the pocket. Had one meal at Hard Rock Cafe (10 minutes away by taxi) while I was here, the food at Howzatt far surpassed the HRC.

Only suggestion to improve things would be to provide breakfast, although this is possible on Saturday and Sunday when the bar is open 24hrs.

Yes I will stay here again probably in the coming weeks.

Room Tip: Try and get one off the roadside

I have stayed at Howzat Inn twice. I booked two rooms online and brought my friend straight from the airport.Although I had reserved two standard rooms at P1350,only one was available and the other was a larger room on the ground floor at P1600. Linda graciously reduced the price to the original rate. I felt the aircon could have been a little cooler,there again it was the hottest day of the year in Manila at 36.7c but it wasn't really a major issue

Room Tip: The ground floor room is large with two double sized beds,ideal for a family

This is a decent place at very good value. It;'s not pretentious, but clean, simple, comfortable and as stated, it won't burn a hole through your wallet. There is a well stocked mini bar fridge and the aircon works a treat, although it took me two nights of sweating before I realised I hadn't turned it on correctly!
I have to say that the manager, Jonathon, offers exceptional value for money, in this hotel, and in the Howzat bar where food is good, atmosphere is very welcoming and prices are again very reasonable, as well as in the girlie bar with two great pool tables at the start of P Burgos (can't remember its name).
Compared to other hotels and bars in the area (I've stayed in 5 others!), this one wins hands down.
