Accommodation tips

There are a number of accommodation choices for Metro Manila visitors, from hostel types to grand hotels. The Mall of Asia Arena is very close to a number of five-star luxury hotels such as the Sofitel, Hyatt, Solaire, and the City of Dreams Complex. There is also a range of midrange hotels in the area, such as Microtel.

Beyond the Bay City complex, one can find a variety of hotel options in the Malate and Ermita areas, which is a short taxi ride away from the Mall of Asia Arena. Malate is a tourist town with a healthy number of small to midrange inns, as well as a number of three- to four-star hotels.

If you want to stay in a hotel with history, the Manila Hotel is the destination of choice. Newly refurbished, the Manila Hotel bore witness to Manila’s rather colorful past and serves to anchor the city as it heads to the future.
