A Cheap Place To Stay In Manila

Just a short follow up from a previous post during my visit to the Philippines. As promised, here are pictures of the apartelle I stayed in Manila, actually, Quezon City.

Like I posted before, the cheapest airconditioned room is 680 pesos (roughly $15) and is alright in my standards (I’m cheap, don’t know about you).

The room is very small; 1 single bed and about 2 feet by 6 feet wiggle room plus the bathroom approximately 4 by 4 feet square. All dimensions are approximate, just giving you a clue.

The name is Park Villa Apartelle which is located at No. 61 Examiner St. corner Quezon Avenue in Quezon City. The phone numbers are (63-2) 929-8618 or 928-8511 or 928-0035.

There you have it. If you’re interested, their contact information can be found above. I haven’t noticed, though, that my room is painted in pink!

(Update 27Sep2010: According to the last commenter, the price per 24 hour stay is now 750 pesos. It’s just a bit expensive now but still a good deal. Readers may also try another place I stayed in Quezon city which you can read here – Another cheap hotels to stay in Manila. Last time they charged me 750 pesos for 24 hours.)

    Malapit pa sa lahat. Me mabibilhan din ng pagkain na mura lang.I stayed nang mga ten days pay ka lang every day ng 680 pesos.

  6. @melinda – aba, ganun pa din pala ang renta, ha? ayos yun. tama ang sinabi mo, malapit sa lahat – yung mcdo at saka mercury at saka tropical hut walking distance lang. pati national bookstore. di ko lang alam kung anong pangalan nung street.

  7. @ debbie – parang ganun na nga. mga bagay bagay na tipong showbiz lang ang dating. check in ka dun tapos mag observe ka sa bandang madaling araw – ikaw na ang bahala sa conclusion. o baka naman na-swertihan ko lang. LOL

  8. I am looking a room stay for two weeks from July 20, 2009. Ano gamit meron sa room? How much please? Thanks.

  12. Hi! Thanks for the info, now I know where I can stay in QC. Anong attractions ang malapit sa Park Villa Apartelle. Child friendly ba itong place na to? And how about the public transport walking distance ba?

  13. Hi, thx for sharing this info. I’ll be visiting Manila with my son, Ok lang ba na magstay dito with a kid. Your honest opinion will be very much appreciated. Malapit ba and LRT?

  14. @your experience – in manila, no rooms are available for less than 1000 pesos because people usually flock there to look for overseas work.

    @ ruby – attractions na malapit? hmmn, 1 jeepney ride to laugh line? yun ba attraction na hinahanap mo? palagay ko naman pwede bata. tawagan mo na lang sila. thanks.

    kmi ng husband at anak ko…

  18. i once stayed in park villa for a month. they treated
    me very nicely especially edna. it was still 580 pesos before. but even if they increase their room rate, it’s still worth it. i love the scene over the steel bridge and also the trees. and the said controversies are very true!

  19. hello po. Thanks for this info, very helpful. question po, about the laundry and ironing, may service po ba sila na ganito?

    Thanks po ulit.

  20. @Sabel, meron sila pero sayang kung sa kanila mo pa papagawa mas mahal sila. Lakad ka lang papunta sa may bandang National Bookstore, meron dun laundry – mas mura. Ang ginagawa ko para wag ako mangawit magbitbit, nilalagay ko sa carry-on luggage ko yung mga madumi kong damit tapos hahatakin ko lang sya papunta dun sa National Bookstore.

  21. @Sabel – you’re welcome. Buti naman pinakinabangan mo info dito. Tungkol sa laundry sa Honeys West, dun sa bandang Del Monte yata ako nagpapa-laundry pero di ko na matandaan eksakto yung lugar. Alam mo, itanong mo dun sa guard ng apartelle dahil sa kanila ko din tinanong yan nung naghanap ako ng laundry shop. Thanks.

  22. Goodam! Just wana ask re: room? How much per night? We are three me,my baby 1.3 old, and my husband. We need 2 bed. Our preferred dates will start at December 23 – 27, 2011. But it will also depend on my husband if we will stay longer. But meanwhile can I ask for a quote for 1 week only? I am looking forward on your reply. Thanks

  23. @Ira, please contact them direct at this numbers: 929-8618 or 928-8511 or 928-0035 about your question. Last update you can read from above post is on Sep2010 and it is 750pesos per room for 2 people per night. I have not stayed at Park Villa since 2007. Goodluck.

  24. meron po bng png 3 bed also yng pinaka lowest rate lng for 1 month and along manila lng included na din ba lht with water and electric? also cempre much better kung my kitchen din.ty po

  25. @Malen – kung gusto mo ng meron kusina tapos sa Manila lang ang location, punta ka sa Mabuhay Manor (mabuhaymanor.com.ph). Pero hindi mo sila makukuha sa 1,000 PHP per night. Malabo kang makakuha ng ganyang presyo sa Manila. Ang Casa Bocobo (casabocobo.com.ph) mahigit din sa 1,000 PHP per night. Dun sa Mabuhay Manor, up and down ang kwarto sa tabi ng swimming pool, meron sariling kitchen, 2 bed sa upper floor tapos isang sofa bed sa lower floor. Ang Casa Bocobo naman wala silang kwarto katulad sa Mabuhay Manor. Punta ka na lang sa website nila para makita mo rates nila. Goodluck.

    1. ang sabi dun sa last update 750 pesos na since 2010 pa. di ko alam kung meron silang cellphone, sorry. yung phone number nila eto: 929-8618 or 928-8511 or 928-0035, pakitawagan na lang sila.

  26. Nung ako ang nag-check in, hindi naman ako hinanapan ng ID. Ewan ko lang kung mukhang sobrang bata mo, baka nga. Lalo na kung bawal sa batas.

  27. Pare-pareho po ba lahat ng room? At pwede po ba yan sa teenagers? 19 po ako, 18 sya. Gusto lang namin ma try lagi ko kasi nadadaanan pag papasok ako sa school. Haha.

  28. @Anonymous – naku, di ko alam kung pwede mga teenager, eh. Pakitanong na lang, matagal-tagal na din akong di nakakapag-check in dyan. Also, pinalitan ko ng anonymous ung iniwan mong name para di ka makilala ng public – minor ka pa kasi.

    @Kaori – walk in ka lang, basta meron sila available room bibigyan ka nila. Dati tumatanggap sila ng reservation by phone, di ko lang alam na ngayon.

  29. Hi what if nag rent ako ng room for only 2 occupancy pde ba mag sama ng isa pang friend aside from the two of us? Ppayagan kaya sya magstay overnight. or if not kahit visit lng?
