Bed and Breakfast & Apartment in Manila
The Philippine capital city of Manila is a densely populated metropolis set in the heart of the sprawling urban area of Metro Manila, a collection of sixteen cities. Set on the shores of the Bay of Manila, the city has no defined city centre – it is a collage of many different towns with individual characteristics. The Makati district is what the locals would consider the city centre of modern Manila, a busy commercial area where you can rent an apartment, book a bed & breakfast room, eat, drink and shop till you drop. The district boasts a dynamic atmosphere, created by the many locals whose influence makes this place anything but a generic shopping mall.
Options for bed and breakfast in the Philippines
Choosing where to find hostel or B&B accommodation in the city could lead you on a real adventure. With so many different districts and areas to visit, you could spend a night in each. Rent an apartment near the National Museum of the Philippines or stay at a bed & breakfast hotel in the Spanish colonial area of Santa Cruz. With high humidity and heat, air-con or fans over the bed and local fruits for breakfast are standard across the city. Many hotels and apartments also offer rooftop swimming pools for sunbathing with a view.
Stay in a local apartment in Manila
Most people in Manila live in apartment blocks – the famous 1322 Golden Empire Tower, a 57-storey residential apartment building, being one of the most luxurious. So, if you want to stay somewhere other than a hostel or B&B, why not stay in an apartment? Rent one from a local and get a flavour of the real Manila.
