Take a look at the best value hotels in Pasay.
The Kabayan is a decent budget option in Pasay, near the airport and public transport. Rooms are tiny and barebones, but rates are some of the most affordable around, and freebies such as Wi-Fi and a hearty Filipino breakfast add value. Probably the most outstanding feature here are the Japanese-style Kapsule Rooms, which offer more privacy than dorms and a unique experience (yet not one for claustrophobic travelers!). A cheap cafe serving up traditional Filipino cuisine, on-site parking, and airport transfer service (for a fee) is all there is in the way of amenities.
For travelers interested in shopping at the SM City Mall of Asia, the mid-range Golden Phoenix Hotel Manila fits the bill, as it’s just across the street. It’s a modern hotel with 281 contemporary rooms that cover all the amenity basics from minibars to kettles, as well as plenty of hotel features like an outdoor pool and small gym. While the hotel provides most things any traveler might need, it feels a bit average in terms of style. The breakfast buffet offers Western and Asian cuisine, but it costs a fee, and the restaurant doesn’t receive rave reviews. There are also reports of slow Wi-Fi and cleanliness issues throughout. If a location closer to the city center is of importance, Ramada Manila Central is a good alternative with similar amenities (minus the pool).
The Mabuhay Manor is a small, no-frills property offering good value in Pasay, near the airport and the Mall of Asia. Families on a budget would do well here, as the hotel offers an array of large rooms for up to six guests, a kiddy pool, and a selection of games for children. Rooms are basic, with old technologies, dated decor, and little natural light -- but clean and overall adequate for the price. Perks include a pleasant outdoor pool, a small fitness center, and a traditional Filipino restaurant, plus a few great freebies, such as Wi-Fi, one-way airport transfer, on-site parking, and breakfast buffet.
