This lovely hotel is a genuine boutique property with soothing color schemes and a distinctive modernist aesthetic, both in the rooms and the artful common areas, that offers a nice counterpoint to the chaos of the neighborhood. I stayed in a suite on the third floor – 307, I believe – and the room was clean, tastefully decorated, and quiet.... More

Hotel Durban is an oasis of excellent service in Manila, as other hotels have an "overstaffed but underserve" mentality for guests. The security and front door staff rush to open the door when you enter and the waiters anticipate your desire to order. The front desk doubles as a concierge with the same services one would find at a 5-star... More

How can I put this nicely? This is a very well managed boutique (small) hotel located next to the P. Burgos Street part of Makati. What does that mean? P. Burgos Street is full of night clubs, bars, restaurants and a few prostitutes. It's not for everyone. We stayed here for 2 nights at USD$48/night (without breakfast). The hotel is... More

As a regular traveller to the Philippines I always stay at Hotel Durban both on my arrival and again on my leaving Manila. The staff are all so friendly they are no longer people that take care of my stay there, they are also my friends.The rooms are clean and well maintained.

Decided to stay here after our trip in Boracay and found the location to be nice. Room was clean and tidy with the staff ever so helpful. Our room on the ground floor unfortunately didn't have any network reception at all though the wifi is decent but intermittent.

Hotel Durban is even better than I remembered! I stayed here 7 years ago and loved it - just had a lay-over in Manila and stayed again - it is awesome. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

I spend my first 3 nights and last night here, thanks to a tip from a forum member. Super location! No safety issues, love how lively things are, even in the wee hours of the morning and being able to find food then too. Being one street away from Burgos is no big deal. Not too much difference in feel... More
