I entered the light, bright, cool reception and was greeted by the polite and charming staff. I asked for a quiet budget fan room and was shown to a clean, spacious room at the rear of the building overlooking a side street. With the window shut I could hear none of the horrendous din of Adriatico St and there was even a desk, chair and mirror. There was no building work occurring and I was not put under any pressure to use the hotel's taxi service which was simply listed on the information sheet. I enquired about the wi-fi access and was told that I could use it for free for 15 minutes; I actually used it for at least 30 minutes but it didn't concern the reception staff. Throughout my stay, all the staff - reception, security, porters etc. were all polite and helpful. I enjoyed blissful sleep during my 3 night stay. At 750P I think this represents very good value and a convenient location close to cafes, shops and easy access to sights. Apart from the rather cramped bathrooms, I have no complaints!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Malate Pensionne is located in the heart of Malate, a district of Manila on Adriatico St. (formerly Dakota St under the US Commonwealth & Calle Nuevo under Spain). Our building was built by Americans who leased the land from our grandfather to house American workers. When the lease ended, our mother turned it into Dakota Apts. Returning from her European trips & learning of how Italians welcomed weary travelers to their home like family members, she turned Dakota Apts into Malate Valero Pensionne, now well know as the Malate Pensionne with the slogan, "Your home away from Home". As far as we know, we are the only hotel in the world with a strict policy of only registered guests can walk our hallways. We are about a mile from the US Embassy & Rizal Park. About 2 miles from Intramuros, the old walled city of Manila, a 5 min. walk to Robinson Mall. 15 min. by car to Mall Of Asia & 11.5km to the upscale Makati City & Bonifacio Global City. Mabuhay, Bienvenido, Welcome to your "home away from home". ... more less
