If you are looking for a hotel in Metro Manila, close to shopping, restaurants, and a bit of nightlife than we would highly recommend the Linden Suites Manila.
It’s a short walk from the SM Mall, Shangri-la Plaza, and St Francis square mall. So there is no shortage of choice of international brands and designer options.
The hotel is also really well connected through the MRT line to other parts of Manila if you’d like to explore the city.
It’s located in Ortigas which is one of the best places to stay as a tourist. We found plenty of great international and Asian restaurants to choose from near the hotel.
Check-in hotel in Metro Manila, Philippines
When we arrived at this 4* hotel in Metro Manila we were instantly impressed by the level of security. There was a metal detector and a police guard at the entrance which helped to make us feel safe.
The lobby was large and modern and felt very clean.
We were greeted by the friendly staff who checked us in efficiently and asked us if they could assist us with anything at all.
They also let us know that there is a smoking room so you don’t have to leave the hotel if you want to have a cigarette.
Our room was a Two Bedroom Deluxe in Tower 1 and had great views over the SM Mega Mall.
The main bedroom was spacious with a huge wardrobe, a comfortable queen bed and a large flat screen TV.
All the rooms have quiet air conditioning, a safe, free Wifi, tea and coffee making facilities.
The suites have kitchens and large dining rooms as well so you don’t have to eat out every day.
In the kitchen they have a fridge, microwave, stove top and plenty of pots and pans in the cupboard. We liked that it felt more like a home than a hotel room. The bathroom had a large bathtub with a shower. The second bedroom was a little smaller but it still had a comfortable bed.
The buffet breakfast at the hotel was really tasty.
There was a mixture of the normal continental items and some Asian dishes to choose from. Furthermore, the staff were really helpful and friendly at the buffet.
If you’re a fussy eater though, there is a 7-11, Starbucks and supermarkets nearby. That way you can always make breakfast in your kitchen instead.
We also got to try out the pool while we were there, which is a large indoor pool which is heated all year.
It’s very large and open until 10 pm, so perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring or shopping. There is also a large heated Jacuzzi with windows overlooking Ortigas.
The hotel has a gym with a sauna that opens from 6 am, which we didn’t use while we were there.
But it’s well equipped for people who like to continue their workouts whilst on holiday.
There is also a spa onsite which is open until midnight!
Linden suites In a nutshell
Staying at the Linden Suites Hotel in Metro Manila was a very positive experience and we would recommend it to everyone.
They have two and three bedroom suites which are perfect if you are travelling as a family or a group of friends, or if you simply want a bit of extra space.
All of the staff that we met from the security guard, to the front desk staff and the waiters at breakfast were very friendly and happy to assist us in anyway necessary.
The best thing about this hotel is the location. Within a ten minute walk we had all the shops, bars and restaurants we could ever want and we enjoyed trying all the different foods.
It’s not really necessary to leave the Ortigas area.
But, if you wanted to explore Makati the MRT stop is just a 5 minute walk from the Linden Suites.
