#40 of 100 B&Bs / Inns in Manila
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".

House is def old world and Spanish vibe. Was in the 4th flr. It was creepy and quiet when i checked in almost midnight. Room is def small for average height men. Got the 1,800 php one for queen size bed and own tb. Tv is old school small size but clear reception w cable... Cute. Lol. Tb is ok sized for a 5'2'' woman like me. Has hot shower. Sheets feel dusty. Bed is kinda hard. Place is quiet despite night bars next door.breakfast is so so but an old lady staff was nice. Frontdesk women aren't friendly like cebuanos. Lol.i like the aura of the place for breakfast.. Def an old spanish house filled with historical family photos and old manila photos. Has coffee bean on its front area.. Which smelled off sewers at a point and had no ac.

I’ve stayed here on several tips to Manila over the years. I was pleasantly surprised with the new remodel of their reception area. Brighter more modern. In spite of the remodel, the main rooms on the upper levels remained the same. This is why me and most people stay here- the historical and nostalgic charm of old Manila. The location is also ideal- a few steps from Remedios Circle, three blocks from Baywalk, and an easy ten minute (or less) walk to Robinson’s Mall. The staff were always ready and willing to assist with all My needs. Will keep coming back again and again.

I liked the area where we were staying especially the neighboring ramen restaurant. Most of the people working there were very friendly, room with AC was ok, bed was good, there was hot water in the shower, no internet in the room and there were far too many cockroaches in all different sizes.

Got a fan room with a private bathroom. Bed is ok, clean enough despite dust. Some mosquitoes. Stayed for two nights -- on the first night, I had to kill some baby cockroaches in the bathroom. Maybe because the room is hardly used, so they emerged after my first shower in the afternoon. Shower was weak, no hot water. Safety deposit box is in a shared storage room, not privately in your room. It was ok, but dont think the bathroom was worth the added cost.

We booked a fan room which is clean and big for the price we paid, bathroom is located outside in the hallway which is also clean and near to our room. Wifi is available in the common room. Breakfast is served from 6am to 10am at 110 & 130 pesos, coffee shop and restaurant is also available. Very accessible. Near Robinson Manila, P. Gil station and about 30-45mins from the airport. Plenty of bars and restaurants around. They have airport pickup and drop-ofd services. Staffs are polite.
