Manila may be one of the best places on earth to book a gay-friendly 5-star hotel room. Here, luxury hotels are available for similar prices to a budget hotel in a major European city, so this is your chance to go all out. The city’s luxury hotels range from classic grandeur to more modern, designer options, and are mostly concentrated in Makati and on the waterfront. Whichever one you choose, you are guaranteed ultimate comfort, top-notch facilities, and unmatchable Filipino hospitality and a gay-friendly reception.
Manila may be known for its exceptionally good value luxury hotels, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of great budget gay-friendly hotels. If you don’t really need the frills, you can get a clean, modern, and comfortable room in a great central location for an excellent price. That said, many 3-star gay-friendly hotels in Manila have great facilities like swimming pools and gyms. If you’re in town to party, look out for hotels that are near gay bars and venues in Malate and Quezon.
