If you depend on the internet, it’s difficult to search for cheap hotels in Manila. Even if you type-in “cheap hotels in Manila” in Google or Yahoo, usually the results are not what you’re looking for.
In my experience as an avid internet researcher for frugal traveling and as a frequent visitor to the Philippines and Southeast Asia, the only way to find a really cheap accommodation in most Asian countries, even if we think internet search results is getting close to what we’re looking for – the best way is to be there and talk to the locals.
Referring to Manila in this post, the cheap hotels I experienced being in are mostly in Quezon city. One of which I already wrote about in my previous post.
In this article, again I’d like to point all you frugal travelers to another cheap hotel in the Philippines I discovered in my latest visit to Manila. Included here are pictures and contact information of the accommodation and again, let me just say again that since this is a budget place, the room is small, similar to the other cheap hotel in Manila post I did way back.

Updated feedback from reader Robert (January 2011):
Cheapest room rental: 800 pesos per day
One time deposit na 150 pesos na makukuha mo ulit upon check-out. (I should have included that pero nawala na sa isip ko. Thank you, Robert). Click this link to go to Robert’s review of Honeys West Apartelle.
Another update from Robert (February 2011):
According to Robert, you may avail of 12 hours stay for 600 pesos. I did not ask for that info or talked with anyone there about it. Salamat kay Robert, nadadagdagan ang mga info dito. Here’s the link to Roberts additional comment: click here
Here’s a video of one of the rooms at Honeys West. This room has 2 single beds. Ok for 2 persons but I think 2 people will also fit in each bed, as long as they’re not too chubby, so that’s 4 persons in the room if that’s the case. Please post your comments. Salamat po.
Updated feedback from reader Marian (April 2012):
Room rental is still 800 pesos per day. She rented a family room which has 1 queen size and 1 twin bed and the rent is 1600 pesos nightly. Extra person is 100 pesos, additional bed 100 pesos. Read Marian’s comment here. Salamat ng marami, Marian.
We have update from reader Ann (March 2013):
Apparently, their rates stayed low at 800 pesos/day and additional person is still 100 pesos. That’s good news to us frugal travelers, at least we have a place to stay at in Metro-Manila that is still below the 1000 peso mark. Go here to read Ann’s comment. Maraming salamat, magandang binibini! Sana nag-enjoy kayo sa Honeys West.
