I have been staying for many times at Hotel Durban's neighbor, St. Giles Hotel, when my friends told me they will be staying at Hotel Durban. I need to join them as we will do something together so I decided to just stay with them.
I was a bit hesitant because it was near the red light district of Makati but when I saw the lobby and the rooms, I was amazed that I could get at a very low price such rooms in Makati. St. Giles Hotel was almost charging 50% more and the staff there are not so nice. If you are in a tight budget, then Hotel Durban is for you.
There was free wifi internet and the signal was satisfactory. The water pressure was strong. Only, they did not have full-body mirrors inside the room. Also the electric sockets were very few. I had to remove the lamp from the socket just to charge my phone. They only have few rooms to better book in advance.
Overall this was an unexpected great stay in this hotel, great in the sense that it was worth more than what we paid for. The staff were courteous and friendly.
