Old Manila Meets Chic Art Deco at this Boutique Hotel

by Anna Duque

Somewhere in busy Malate is an unassuming boutique hotel that tugs at your curious self to come in and take a peek.

The glass wall panels that greet you at the lobby are artistic representations of Old Manila—look closely and you'll realize they actually form a map. That’s when it hits you: Amelie Hotel Manila is a guesthouse where the old and modern entwine so exclusively, you can’t help but feel right at home.

And if you're wondering about the hotel's name and whether or not it was derived from the French movie Amelie, here's a fun fact: The guest house was named after the owner’s daughter, and even before the boutique hotel came to life, in its place stood a home. It's a fitting way to give other people the chance to experience the delights of comfortable living without having to worry about an expensive stay.

The 70-room boutique has three different accommodation spaces for you to choose from, each one just as enticing as the last. Deluxe 1 is a 24sqm room, with one comfortable queen size bed you can sink into. Its red and black interiors give the space that hip, retro vibe both young and old alike will find appealing.

Deluxe 2 is more spacious than the first, with two queen size beds and the same room amenities. If you’re the type who can’t live without wi-fi, you can breathe a sigh of relief as the internet connection here is pretty reliable. The room layout is cozy and homey enough to tempt you to stay in all day, and the artsy but uncontrived feel of the hotel gives the interiors just the hint of modern ambience it needs to stand out in Manila.

Make this artsy space your home when you buy this deal for a Deluxe 2 Queen Room Stay for 4 here.

For those who like their rooms with a dash of class, the Executive Suite is the perfect choice. The sofas provide ample seating room, and there’s a consumable mini-bar, too. Great for those who like to stay in their rooms the whole day and binge-watch their favorite movies and TV shows.

The pool and the gym located at the roof deck are enough reason to venture out of the rooms. The pool location allows you to watch the gorgeous Manila Bay sunset while you lounge and sip on your margarita, and it's a quiet enough area to let you enjoy a lazy afternoon. If you're catching up with friends, there are several tables available where you can hang out.

If you’re thinking of hosting an intimate event, Cityscape in Amelie is the ideal space. It has fantastic views of the Manila skyline, especially at night, and the function room can fit as many as a hundred guests.

At the lobby, you'll find Amelie’s in-house restaurant Braska, a spot that serves comfort Filipino dishes. Don’t let the chic ambience fool you—this resto may look and feel modern, but the menu will remind you of Sunday lunches at home and mom’s awesome cooking.

If you’re looking for quiet time with friends or family, Amelie is the perfect staycation venue. You get a comfortable, familiar vibe along with the guarantee that your short break gives you great value for money. Amelie Hotel Manila can easily be your home away from home.
