Hotel is clean, with inside mostly made of original & colonial touch pitch-brown hardwood lumber furnishings, reasonably priced, fairly couteous staff. I got over with jetlag & felt rested after two days because i just stayed in the comfort of my room most of the time & also n the ante room to get good internet connections. But outside, the streets are filthy & stinks especially in the morning. This once elegant & popular location where the middle-upper class would come to dine, party & hang around in the 80' & early 90's has now become the haven of beggars, street kids, hawkers, pimps. Walking one evning from Robinsons mall of abt 4 blocks from this hotel, i got ugly invitations &proposals -one after another- from hawkers & pimps along the way. A solo foreigner or foreigner-looking guy (like me, lolz!)can always expect this. It's unfortunate that this decent hotel wd an illustrious history &beautiful beginning has to suffer an ugly neighboorhood. Mayor Erap pls do something!
- 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
