Bedbugs and lots of bits for one night

I stayed here in 2009 they were rude and I had to climb around concrete blocks and they were also doing building work, woke up in the morning to find i had been attacked all night by bedbugs, I had a bucket to fill to flush the loo and no loo rolls no curtains in the room and when i complained they brought me a t towel was a big one but no way big enough to cover the window where people on the street were able to view me. glad i didnt pay for the week and left at first light.



'If any of you have any tips on HOW we can make guests' SMILE in the future please share it with us?' This was a question asked by owners Bill & Lorna. I REPLIED ... Yes, you might try to make the STAFF smile. What a miserable bunch! Also impress on them that the TV is for the guests, not for them and their friends. Also the room was too basic even for the price and never cleaned, Bed linen was also not clean and keep the room free from cockroaches. I made friends with some of the guests and we all agreed that the staff was sullen and unfriendly. The proximity of the place to the airport was its only saving grace. In brief my stay was an experience not to be repeated.

Great experience for such affordable price

the place is so homey. real people are around, the staff and owners are great, helpful. the staffs even play with my 2yr old kid. the place is very accessible to malls, strolling areas, airport and transport. so great for Php1000 per night. cable tv, aircon, hold/cold shower. just great.


Cheapest little home from home

theres nowhere in manila including the provinces thats better and cheaper than this place. its close to airport, coastal mall, you have the bus stops outside the taxis -- all you want on a shoestring is here. im just an old soldier who knows the value of a good little hotel that tries hard to be a home from home.


New Staff, Restaurant, Good Service, and Friendly plus safe place

I stayed here for two nights. I found the rooms to be basic as other hostels but the service was friendly and the food was well prepared and reasonable for budget travelers like me. Real non-erotic massage therapy was great for after a long day of walking or from my long flight back to Asia for holiday then back to work in China.


Workers were okay but bad security has meant a number of robberies

This place has no security where other hotels all have armed guards. In manila you must have armed guards to be safe. The result is a spate of robberies and attacks on guests and staff. The place is not recommended.


More reviews...


The Townhouse Hotel is the only place in Manila that provides such a friendly, comfortable place for "world travelers" to meet with safe, clean rooms with the lowest rates in Manila. We have welcomed world traveler guests from 78 countries and Filipinos from all over the world and most of the provinces since 1986. Bill and Lorna, their relatives and staff enjoy meeting people and help you feel "at Home" as soon as you arrive. So relax, have a drink, take a look at the latest travel information & Bill's Travel Tips posted on our walls! Browse our magazine rack or our growing book shop ( paperbacks U$1 and under, hardbacks U$3 and under )and feel free to ask our staff to open the bookcases or ask to borrow an older edition of a Philippine guidebook or travel guides to other countries in Asia.
