The people are attentive to my immediate need for safety, security, cleanliness, and help for things that I may have forgotten or may need along the way. There is no elevator so the management has a man posted on the third floor where I stayed. When I could not find the switch to the bathroom, someone just appeared from nowhere...

My room was cheap for its location. Since I was on a budget, it's okay. It's near everything (city life, especially the night life) which was nice. If you want an A-ok room with bed and an AC, here is just okay. Breakfast was served only at the Guest's Lobby which was small. They had like cafe tables for 2....

I've given this place several chances over the years, but after my most recent stay I'm officially done. It's in a very convenient location and has an interesting history. But the rooms are stuffy and musty, the fumes from the floor polish are nauseating, the internet is weak and does not reach the rooms, the hot water comes out in...

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
