Another Affordable Hotel in Makati - Saint Illians Inn

After our staycation last New Year's Eve at Herald Suites Makati, I was looking for a much affordable hotel that can accommodate my relatives coming from the province and they were looking for a homey type of hotel but for an affordable price that accommodates 3 persons in 1 room. Beside Herald Suites is Franchise One Hotel and the reception of Franchise One suggested me to go to their sister hotel Saint Illian's Inn which is just about 5-7 minutes walk from their hotel. On the same street of Franchise One Hotel, I found Saint Illian's Inn.   

If you look outside the building it looks an old dormitory/apartment building with vines all over the facade. Beside the hotel are residential houses and apartments. Upon entering the hotel, you will immediately see their cafeteria and the lobby. I find the hotel staff really friendly and accommodating. I asked the receptionist if they have a room good for 3 pax which is under 3,000 pesos per night with breakfast and luckily they have rooms for that. 

They showed me their family room with 3 single beds, a LED tv, ensuite bathroom and at the corner of the room is a coffee table. The room is pretty small, I mean if you are traveling and staying with kids who are very playful and hyper this room is not gonna be a playground for them, lol. 

Saint Illian's Inn, Franchise One Hotel and Makati International Hotel has all DVD for free to borrow. They have tons of choices from a Romantic movie to drama, action packed film and even cartoons for our kids. 

One thing I loved about this hotel is that they over a promo for longer stays, I am booking a family room for 2 nights and they offered me to pay only 3,800 PHP / 77.55 USD. Now that is a HUGE discount. I have a family of three who will stay at the hotel and they only have to shell out 1,300 PHP / 25.85 USD for 2 nights stay!

It pays huge savings if you really check on all hotels in the area and asked for a discount.

  1. That is just a beautiful hotel, when staff is friendly it's very soothing and you enjoy sharing the world how amazing they are. My family and I when we travel we always make sure we stay at the hotel who knows how to treat their customers.

  2. I like the idea of having the vines crawled up in their terrace. Your virtual photos is so cool and a very helpful guide.

  3. Cool. This is budget friendly and has a typical home like feel to it!

  4. This is near our place. This would be a good and affordable option once the family is around.

  5. Nice DVD collection they have, I won't mind staying over to watch something. I hope they are not "dibidi, dibidi" though, hehe.

  6. Always so fun to look around places using 360 viewers! The inn looks cozy from the outside, but the rooms are pretty small as you said! XD
