Malate Pensionne

Traveler (102)
Room & Suite (282)

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".

Hello! Thank you for your interest in making Malate Pensionne your "home away from home". I apologize for not responding in a timely manner on the Trip Advisor as we only check this site every so often. All our inquiries generally go through our email and website. Our reception desk is open 24/7 same as our security. If your arrival is the 19th of September at 2 in the morning, you would need to reserve your room for the 18th to ensure that it is available for you when you arrive. That is standard for all hotels around the world. We have 10 room categories ranging from dormitory to family room. We look forward having you as our guest and wish you a pleasant and safe trip to Manila. Best regards, Jay Gutierrez - Gen Mgr.
