Guest Friendly Hotels Manila

guest friendly hotels manila

Guest friendly hotels Manila general information: The best guest friendly hotels in Manila are located close to nightlife. The main party areas to find bar girls and freelancers are the Ermita/Malate district and Makati. Makati is a business district with higher prices but the best and safest area for a newbie.

Unlike Angeles, the price for the girl is not included in the bar fine. Most of the hotels in Manila are guest friendly, but not all. (some reports for non-guest friendly hotels – The Manila Hotel) All top guest friendly hotels Manila are 100% guest friendly, close to the action, and have high ratings on Agoda and Tripadvisor. The best option for transportation between Manila airport and Makati or Ermita/Malate areas is Grab taxi.

Guest friendly hotels Manila 2024 update

My best advice for 2024: stay in Makati if you are not Korean. There are KTVs for Korean customers in Ermita/Malate, but nowhere else to go besides LA Cafe and G-Point.

I had a great stay at City Garden Hotel Makati. You can read my latest hotel review below.

There are some new bars on Burgos Street if you don’t mind paying more for girls and many freelancers online for a more reasonable price.

Updates from previous years:

The staff at Hotel Sogo Makati doesn’t care much about IDs, and Raffles Makati officially confirmed that you can bring two visitors at a time free of charge. Hotel La Corona and Oxford Suites are not part of the Best Western group anymore but are still guest friendly.

Cafe Havana near the Greenbelt Mall is closed and LA Cafe is not like before. However, both areas are not completely dead and there are some freelancers in both areas. Palm Hotel near LA Cafe is a nice budget guest friendly accommodation.

If not on a business trip, I would avoid Manila and go directly to Angeles. Manila is not a good value for money city to find girls and has crazy traffic jams.

Manila bar girl prices 2024: The prices are high and similar to last year, so for lady drinks, expect to pay from 320 to 400 pesos in some new go go bars on Burgos Street. The bar fine is from 3000 and up to 3500-4000 pesos in most places, and the girls are happy with 4000-6000 pesos. You can lower the price to 3000, depending on what you are asking for and how long, but some girls don’t go for less.

Most girls at LA Cafe ask for 3000 pesos, but some are happy with 2000. Sadly, not many beautiful girls there.

You can get lucky on some dating apps like Tinder and WeChat and websites like pinalove and find a beautiful girl for 2500+ pesos or even for free. However, the price for massages starts at 1200 for massages only.

List of guest friendly hotels Manila

Top guest friendly hotels Manila – Makati

City Garden Hotel Makati **** $59+

guest friendly hotels manila city garden hotel makati

It’s now my favorite hotel in the area. Perfect mid-range hotel within walking distance to Makati nightlife – Burgos Street. Its location, service, and amenities make it great value for money. It’s less than a two-minute walk to the bars, and the side street is safe. There is a bank with security guards and a few money changers.

I stayed in one of their best executive deluxe rooms. They are large and clean, with comfy beds, desks, and in-room safes. The bathrooms are not huge, but they are clean and have bathtubs. There is also a rooftop pool, lounge, and restaurant with a spectacular city view. Excellent breakfast. Friendly and professional staff.

Oxford Suites Makati *** $36+

A few years ago, a bar girl told me: “Why don’t you book I’m hotel next time? It’s so much better.” Yes, I agree with her. It’s an excellent 5-star guest friendly hotel in a great location, within a 3-minute walk to Burgos Street. All rooms are huge, with sofas, very comfortable beds and smart TVs with movie channels. However, they don’t have smoking rooms, so if you are a smoker, you better book a suite room with a balcony. There are also nice facilities like a pool, spa, gym, and rooftop bar, which are already open.

Raffles Makati ***** $298+

It’s probably the best guest friendly hotel in Manila if you can afford it. Moreover, not many hotels officially confirm that you can bring two visitors at the same time free of charge. Raffles is located right opposite Greenbelt Mall, a great spot to meet your online dates or even find some freelancers. It’s not very close to bars on Burgos Street (20 min. walk), but you can use Grab for cheap and secure transportation. The smallest room is a huge, stylish suite with a comfortable bed, seating area, and desk. There is also a nice swimming pool, gym, and rooftop bar.

Hotel Sogo – Makati Ave. ** $39+

The hotel has a great location, as P Burgos Street and the go go bars are just around the corner. Moreover, they have recently renovated rooms, and unlike most other hotels in the area, they don’t check visitor IDs and vaccination certificates. However, the rooms are small but you get what you pay for. It’s a basic hotel with clean rooms and bathrooms.
