November, 2015 Update! Postal / Google Maps Address: Villa Carolina Townhouse 31 Bayview Drive, Paranaque City 1700 Metro-Manila Philippines

2015 Update Take Note: A massive elevated bypass system is under construction and although I applaud their speedy progress it took 1-1/2 hours for me to drive home from NAIA 1; we can walk it in 30 minutes! Now flight arrivals at all 4 Manila airports are more confusing than ever with each terminal providing service to both domestic and international airlines.
Take Note: Use GrabTaxi with GPS and to Avoid being Over Charged. Our 24 Hour Airport Service in Blue Delica Van Temporarily Not Available due to our former driver, Robert has not returned from his province since the last major typhoon.

Today I walked and found out I could ride "MIA Airport Road Baclaran" jeepneys 24 hours round the clock from NAIA 1,NAIA2 and NAIA 4 to the corner of Quirino & Bayview Drive, only 300 meters or 2 blocks away from our Townhouse Hotel / Hostel Manila in 18 minutes for ONLY P7.50 ( 16 cents U$ / 14 cents Euro$ ) and the air-conditioned Airport Loop Shuttle Bus from NAIA 1 & 2 all the way to both NAIA 4 and NAIA 3 for only P20 ( 43 cents U$ & 39 cents Euro$ ) from 5:30AM to 11:30PM, 18 hours a day.

Manila has 4 Ninoy Aquino International Airports commonly referred to as, NAIA ( pronounced Nah EE AH ) NAIA 1( mostly Foreign International Airlines / Taxi Meter Fare P100 to P110), NAIA 2( mostly Philippine Airlines Taxi Fare 115 to P125 ), NAIA 3 (mostly Cebu Pacific Airlines & Discount airlines booked on-line / Taxi Fare P130 to P150 ) and NAIA 4 ( mostly AirAsia & Tiger Airlines) / Taxi Meter fare only P75 to P85) The Towhouse airport service when we hire a new driver is P180 / 1,2 or 3 persons, P250 /4, 5 or 6 persons from 6AM to 12 PM Midnight. Add P50 for our driver waking up between 12:01AM Midnight and 5:59AM.

Please Take Note: do not expect Manila taxi drivers to know where you are going as maybe 50% are from the provinces and the other 50% are from 1 of Metro-Manila's 16 cities so have little or no idea about the landmarks in the other 15 cities. Try to avoid taking parked taxis as they tend to waiting for a victim to over charge so take taxis in motion who tend to be more honest and too busy working honoring the taxi meter fare. Take my wife's advice: If taxi driver attempts to over charge you, upon arrival walk through our Townhouse hotel / Hostel Manila front entrance gate, lock it then hand the right payment listed above so the taxi can get angry instead of you and instruct him to go file a barangay complaint or to the police; what do you think the consequences will be when he complains saying I tried to over charge them for P500 and they refused to pay?


From all 4 airports, you tell the taxi driver to Roxas ( pronounced RO Hoss ) Blvd Bayview International Towers ,you're 1 minute away! Continue straight on Roxas 150 meters. Turn right on the first small street to #31 Bayview Drive. Look for our Townhouse Sign.

24 / 7 Check-in and Airport Service. Between 6AM to 12 Midnight P180 / 1, 2 or 3 persons, P250/ 4 to 7 pax in our Blue Delica Van( soon to be sold an dreplaced )Add P50 for our Driver between Midnight to 6AM

24 Hour Airport PickUP Service PLEASE CALL FIRST from P1 Coin Pay Phone 854-1435, 854-3826,854-1436, ( use prefix 02 if using local cell phone ) to remind our counter staff, Beryl, Raquel, Elena or Mercy and driver, Robert which of Manila's 4 Airport terminals, NAIA 1( Most foreign international airlines) NAIA 2 Philippine Airlines), NAIA 3 (Cebu Pacific Airlines & Discounted PAL & international airline flights booked on-line)& NAIA 4 ( AirAsia & Tiger Airlines ) you arrived and need picked up. P180 / 1,2 or 3 persons, P180 / 3 or 4 persons and P250 / 5,6 or 7 persons from 6AM to 12Midnight. After midnight to 5:59AM add P50 for our driver for waking up.

Hostelworld's Budget Hotels and Hostels Around the World

We maintain the lowest room rates near the 4 Manila airport terminals and wish each and every guest to make The Townhouse Hotel Manila their "Home Away from Home" on their way to other island destinations. But we are more than happy to refer you to a number of other hotels in Metro-Manila in case you prefer another location. If you want 3 to 5 Star comforts and services and price is no object then please FEEL FREE to ask us where to stay. Also if you want a different location but with similiar budget room rates we can also recommend several other small hotels although seldom as friendly as ours. During our 1999 to 2000 round the world trip we were reminded just how cold, unfriendly and professional the hospitality industry has become regardless whether you are traveling in the USA, Thailand, Egypt or Europe so realized how special our place is by maintaining a friendly, family atmosphere. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will return the favor of recommending our place near the Manila airports should someone ask you
