Coming from Negros Occidental where there are dozens of old houses that are still well preserved, this place is too small and cramped up that it is a disappointment seeing the current state and size of the place. Nothing grand about the place. Visit only if you haven't been to real Spanish ancestral houses in the Philippines.

Casa Manila is right across San Agustin Church in Intramuros. It was an old house in the Spanish Colonization era that was converted into a museum. Entrance fee is P75 per adult, and we spent about an hour here. We're not allowed to take photos, and visitors should only walk within the 'red carpet'. The house was well preserved, and... More

We went to this house as part of a shore excursion from Manilla. It is a reproduction as the original house was probably destroyed during the war. There is a lovely garden and the house is fully furnished and shows how a wealthy family would have lived in the late 1800's to early 1900's. The furniture is heavily carved Jacobean... More

Full of antique artefacts and furniture. Walking around in the house, you can easily imagine how life was in those days. Beautifully restored and well kept.

Colonial home allowing you to step back in time and get as a sense of what some homes may have been like both architecturally and decoratively. Most all finishings and decor are wood. No pictures are allowed to be taken inside. The home overlooks a beautiful courtyard surrounded by a few restaurants and shops.

This museum across from San Agustin church depicts the lifestyle of the Spanish rich in the Phillppines & is definitely worth a look when in the area

While the place has some nice features it didn't feel real, more like a prop. and whatever you do don't get off the red carpets. OK for a visit but only if you have extra time to waste.

If you are interested to see how the rich Spanish merchant class lived, situated outside of Intramuros, but inside the walled city, for a reasonable entrance fee, Adults: 75 PHP; Children: 50 PHP, we were able to see Casa Manila, which gives you a first-hand look at colonial lifestyle during Spanish colonization of the Philippines. It is a true testament... More

The Casa Manila is an old town house, belonging to a rather rich family. There one can peak into the life of the people of the upper class and see what being rich a few hundreds of years ago really meant.
