    My go to place in Makati”
    The Clipper has some character, and a great location. Staff are super friendly and helpful. The hotel has good security, you have to be buzzed in, and walk past the desk when you enter. Clean with some large rooms. The corner rooms have a pretty large footprint. The decor is maybe a little bit dated, but that's sort of the theme, a throwback to the Pan Am Airline days of the 60's and 70's. If I'm back in Manila and they have room, I will stay again.

    The breakfast was excellent. One small "complaint". I had my sister-in-law and her husband come to see me/us for a quick 30 minute chat in our room . They would not allow both of them into our room at once. One had to stay downstairs. Or come into our room when the other one went downstairs. What kind of silly rule is that?

    HI Robert! glad to hear you enjoyed our breakfast lovingly prepared by Ate Eden. We apologise if our rules on visitors posed an inconvenience during your stay. We really ty to limit the number of persons in the room in order not to potentially cause a disturbance to the other guests staying on the floor. However, rest assured that your feedback will be taken up with the owner to possibly review our rules on visitors. Thank you for taking time to write to us.

    Very nice hotel, great staff and service . Rooms were well maintained and the atmosphere was pleasan”
    Very close to restaurants and bars, but the street gets a little noisy. Hotel staff was an excellent example of Filipino hospitality, my wife was on bed rest and I had to travel back to Mindanao and the hotel staff checked in on her. Our rooms were clean(and no bugs!) and very comfortable. Only downside being that they only serve breakfast Mon-Sat. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there on our next trip to Manila!

    Not a value for money.”
    no elevator. very small lobby. very crowded area
    Reviewed September 06, 2018
    We appreciate reviews for it helps us identify areas we can further improve on.We are a small, budget, family owned hotel of 10 rooms.. Our lobby is adequate - it has 3 small tables, 6 chairs. The Bar can also seat another 10 pax comfortably. Our rooms are on the 2nd & 3rd floor and for this small budget hotel - an elevator is something we felt was not needed. You and your companion were placed on the 2nd floor which takes exactly 16 steps up to the 2nd floor. If this is a feedback of someone who has trouble negotiating stairs, we would have appreciated if if you had informed this beforehand. after all, our facilities are clearly listed on our site and it is indicated that we do not have an elevator. We would have recommended you to book elsewhere as we anticipate it may cause difficulties. The area of Poblacion itself is a busy area as it houses the restaurants, bars and residential house but compared to the Burgos strip, our place is relatively quieter.

    Great value in a boutique hotel”
    This boutique hotel is in a building originally constructed befoe the Second World War. Its lobby and bar are supposedto replicate the old Pan Am sailing boats that crossed the Pacific at that time. It has large comfortable air conditioned rooms and it borders on the growing back packer hostels which creates a lively atmosphere of young people with plenty of bars.

    In the center of the action, but noisy”
    The hotel is a classic, colonial style hotel, from the Panamerica airlines before. It is quite old, and simplistic, but comfortable enough. Unfortunately, some of the rooms are quite noisy at night due to the bars in the alley behind. No elevator.
    Reviewed April 27, 2018
    HI Juan, thank you for taking time to put in a review for us. Poblacion has been developing for the past few years, and has now become a hub for nightlife and food district of Makati. This attracts crowds of locals and travelers alike. Being part of this, there are some things beyond our control such as the noise level on a weekend and busyness of the streets. However, rest assured that this is being discussed by management as we try find ways to update the furnishing and finishing of the rooms. Our front desk also provides ear plugs free of charge should you need it. We understand this is less than ideal, and that the same thing which attracts crowds to the area is not appealing to everyone. Thank you.
