    We upgraded the room to premium since the room we booked is dark and short space. ”

    Our stay is okay since we are in the center of the city. Pension house is old but maintained by the management. We are secured since there is guard in the area. Rooms also have safety box. Cr is okay. But our room is in 4th floor. Overall rate is okay. Thanks!

    Nice historical feel but so are the sheets...”

    AC was in full blast (which is a bit loud) but the room just wouldn't be cool enough for me so I almost didn't even have to use the blanket until it was about 4AM. Woke up around 5AM to use the blanket and felt the roughness of the sheets... Anyway, they have a Tube TV which is really cool although I didn't get to watch anything but it was really nice hearing how it turns on/off. A-okay for the shared bathroom in general considering the water pressure, however, there was no bidet. It is a lovely place but not necessarily my taste.ü

    Very experienced, wise, helpful management and staff!”

    The hotel has a remarkable, comforting interior of narra hardwood: floors and stairs and railings, a very comfortable and pretty courtyard of natural vine shade and purple hanging flowers. Classic! If you enjoy a "home" feeling, available for backpackers, travelers and tourists, a short walk from Robinsons place mall, this is definitely the place! We (2 adults and 1 child) have been happily staying here, from our home in Puerto Princesa, during 12 years of annual visits to Manila.

    Nice Stay”

    Booked this as our accomodation before we got the Friday ferry with 2go over to Coron. Taxi from the airport we paid 250 & were greated by a lovely warm front desk team. We had a double room with A/C & turned out to be nice but if we were to check in again I would want a private room... Not that the shared facilitys are bad just my own choice as didnt actually know until i checked in it was shared facilitys but managed just fine even if hot water was hit or miss. The location was great just dont expect much from Manila but feels quite safe & just about everywhere has security so as long as others are about it's an ok area & would return.

    I like the airport shuttle, the affordable price and the friendly staff. For short stays, this is a great hotel.

    The staff are friendly and attentive. The room is big enough and clean enough. It is an older hotel but it has lovely wood floors. Breakfast is just next door (Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf) but it was just continental breakfast (coffee, toast and jam).

    I like this hotel because it is close enough to the airport. It is close to some really fine restaurants like Cafe Adriatico. There are many shopping malls close by and even Makati isn't far away. The staff were friendly and attentive.

    Nice Old Manila Charm”

    Security, Staff Accomodating and helpful

    After taxes and fees paid per night. Aircon, hot shower, nice ceiling mounted fan and comfortable bed. They have wi-fi but charge and hour to access in your room. Go downstairs to the Coffee Bean and buy a internet access card for 195P good at all Coffee Bean's in the Philippines, plus the Coffee Bean has a nice lounge area. I was able to pickup the Coffee Bean wi-fi in my room which was on the 4th floor....3 flights of stairs up and there is no elevator. Located among the nightlife of Malate and Ermita. However the Pensionne House does not tolerate dragging in your play for pay friends so naughty boys may wish to find other accomodations. Stayed two nights here and enjoyed the accomodations. Rooms have windows, a desk, shower, wardrobe and we had a queen bed. Remember you are in Malate/Ermita and there are plenty of KTV's, girly bars, beggars and hawkers. They are benign and go away if you place them on ignore and do not engage in conversation. Right next door is a an outdoor resto/bar with cheap cold San Mig and very reasonably priced food. The Where 2 Next Guesthouse is across the street and there are also numerous Pensionne Houses up and down Adriatico Street.

    Despicable ”

    Extremely condescending reception. Worst I've ever encountered at a hotel in my life. The person should be fired. She would not speak to me because I was a foreigner. She disrespected my trsvelling partner. Absolutely disgusting. Worse. There were no private bathrooms. The aircon was like a washing machine and the room was like a childs bedroom with a broken TV. I was embarrassed to check in and I recommend to everyone to dtay clear of this dump. No soap, no towels, no nothing.

    Malate Pensionne Manila was a good surprise”

    Dear Readers Malate Pensionne was not what I expected but I decided to stay as the room was safe without any safety deposit boxes, and the staff were quite accommodating in all respect. At first I was uncomfortable but later I saw how safe and well mannered the staff were I decided to stay for the duration of my stay. So for the cost its a good place if you want to stay briefly in Malate Manila.

    No contingency plans for emergencies”

    There was a power failure that resulted to AC's not functioning. According to the staff, they have generators but could only cover fans. I opted to check out and to get a refund but the staff said, that could be arranged since I booked through Agoda. They gave an option to add an additional fan but it couldn't be of help since the room was too hot (even if the fan is working). She blurted out that it is very obvious that the hotel is "old, low-tech" that is why they cannot address the issue. I insisted to have a refund and transfer to another hotel, but eventually, they managed to supply power from their generator to run the ACs in the third floor (they transferred me from 4th to 3rd floor). This hotel is a budget hotel. Your choice if you would want to experience what was shared above, aside from cockroaches are observed, towels are old, etc. Your choice.

    Manila Malate June/july 2018”

    This Pensionne has a beautiful history behind and it was a pleasure to experience for the first time. I would return only thing I found not satisfactory was they did not have a fridge as I do buy some cold drinks and love the fruit packs they have at supermarkets. Otherwise its a safe and secure hotel/motel and most important they have a Coffee Bean Cafe right underneath the building. Nice food as well.
