The modestly-priced and basic Manila Chinatown Hotel has just about the best possible location for those wanting to explore Binondo, Manila’s “Chinatown”.
A double room at Manila Chinatown will cost P1,350, (as of early 2012). The rooms are quite basic. Previously we reviewed another Binondo hotel, the Peace Hotel on Soler Street. We feel the rooms at the Peace Hotel are more upscale and only slightly more expensive. However, he location of the Peace Hotel, at least for the tourist, is not as good. Although the two hotels are not far apart, we feel that the Manila Chinatown is in a safer part of Binondo and is closer to the shopping and sights of interest to tourists. Just keep in mind that these are both economy hotels. If you’d like something more upscale, take a look at the new Ramada in Binondo. Last time we looked they were offering some good promo rates.
The Manila Chinatown Hotels appears to have previously been called the Fortune Hotel.
