Four Boutique Hotels in Metro Manila for a Quick Getaway
by: The Beat Asia
There is no shortage of hotels in Metro Manila, indeed. From luxury hotels and chain hotels to resorts, micro hotels, and casino hotels, among others, you will never run out of staycation options when in the capital region.
When searching for an accommodation for a family vacation or a quick getaway during the weekend, you should also consider boutique hotels. What sets a boutique hotel from, say, a chain hotel is its size, often small and intimate, and the personalized services it offers. It is usually more affordable, too! For your next quick getaway within the metro, we recommend you check out these boutique hotels.

Located in P. Burgos corner Kalayaan Avenue in trendy Poblacion, Makati, 1898 Hotel Colonia En Las Filipinas is one hotel that incorporates the shared heritage among the country's Filipino, Spanish, and American ancestries. This can be seen through the hotel's interiors, with hallways filled with memorabilia that hark back to the landscapes and scenery of 1900s Philippines. Apart from its world-class rooms, you'll also find excellent facilities in this hotel, such as the Fez Spa, La Piscina Pool, a fitness center, and a business center.
We advise you to contact the hotel before planning any visits for the latest information and guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In its update in May 2021, the hotel is open and accepting customers at its al fresco area.
