I can’t compare Adriatico with other similarly rated accommodation in Manila but it did feel like an oasis in the city and it offered a friendly personal atmosphere, more like a B&B than a hotel.
We stayed an initial two nights at 1775 Adriatico and another night after returning from a road trip to Banaue and Sagada with Manila Stay. The initial booking was through Agoda and entitled us to a simple continental breakfast. The third night was arranged direct and we were given the choice of breakfasts which were superior. The first room was spartan but spacious and clean and comfortable with separate bedroom and kitchen areas. No microwave however. The air-con was loud and we turned it off for a while. The second room was a special deluxe upgrade given to us and was substantially larger and better furnished and decorated.
Adriatico can be hard to find as it located an L junction of two very small lanes off Adriatico and Remedios. There is signage on Remedios but not on Adriatico. Our driver missed the lane in the night and had to reverse against the one-way traffic. This, even though he was booked in advance as an airport transfer. A taxi should be a lot cheaper than the transfer, but will he find 1775? Ah, and the instructions from the hotel to find the Transfer Taxi say turn left after the glass doors from customs but you do have to exit the terminal foyer completely to find the pick-up point. (Later in our trip, I was pleased we bought Globe sim cards at the Airport near where you exit.)
The entrance to Adriatico is unmarked but the friendly security guard kept watch for guests arriving and departing. The area has quite a bit of night life including people sleeping on the streets. We never encountered any trouble though, and the compound felt secure and quiet. The managers were very friendly and chatty allowed me computer access to book and pay for some onward travel plans which we much appreciated. Oh, Wi-Fi was reliable and fast but I did not have my computer…
The location is also good for restaurants and a short walk to the extra - large Robinson’s shopping Mall. We also found it convenient to access other tourist attractions. It is not an upmarket hotel but there are many good reasons to stay at 1775 Adriatico.
