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?
 

Option 1 ) Manila has 4 Ninoy Aquino International Airports commonly referred to as, NAIA ( pronounced Nah EE AH ) TAXIS from: NAIA 1( mostly Foreign International Airlines / Taxi Meter Fare P95), NAIA 2( mostly Philippine Airlines( Taxi P100), NAIA 3 (mostly Cebu Pacific Airlines & Discount airlines booked on-line / Taxi Fare P120 ) and NAIA 4 ( mostly AirAsia & Tiger Airlines) / Taxi Meter fare only P80) 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.

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
 
 I'm 61 years young and timed myself in the afternoon, it took me 18 minutes for P7.50 ( 16 cents U$ and 14 cents Euro$ ) from NAIA1 but of course I didn't have baggage or a backpack. You will see a group of Townhouses to the right, our Unit 11 with 6 fan cooled private rooms and our 6 bed dormitory with flags and our healthy mango tree in front, then 65 meters, half minute walk our main building's entrance in #31 where our check-in counter reception and 26 more private rooms and wi-fi access are located. if nobody opens the front gate when arriving late past midnight Ring the Door Bell to the upper right side of our front gate / entrance door.
 
Option 2 ) Walk outside NAIA 1 terminal to the right down the ramp to the small Roofed "Bus" Stop or from NAIA 2 walk to the left and ask guards where to take the Jeepney "MIA Terminal 1-2" sign on windshield or signage on side of the jeepney body "Baclaran NAIA Domestic MIA" which also passes by NAIA 4 in front of termninal exit on "Domestic Road" ( no signage ). the jeepney will turn left on Airport Road's round-a-bout go straight to first stoplight at Quirino Ave, turn left , go straight, pass a Petron Gas Station on the right ( get out on 2nd street to the right, Bayview Drive but no signage )and the former Pearl Plaza Mini-Mall large building to the left, then knock on jeepney ceiling say "Para" meaning "stop, I want out" at JB Store on corner with big CAMEL Sign, walk straight 2 blocks ( 300+ meters withOUT paying attention to the locals .FROM NAIA 3, walk out the Exit Door to the left straight ahead maybe 6 minutes and look for a Jeepney that Says Baclaran MRT LRT at left side of round-a-bout and get out at Stoplights Roxas Blvd & Airport Road, walk less than 1 km maybe 10 minutes up Roxas Blvd to your left to Villa Carolina Townhouse #31, passing Petron &Shell gas station on your left and City of Dreams Casino on the right It took me 36 minutes with a light daypack and I paid P7. There is also an air-conditioned AIRPORT LOOP BUS for only P20 which can drop you at the same spot in Baclaran on intersection/ stoplights of Airport Road & Roxas Blvd less than a km away.

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

2011 UPDATE New Manila Immigration Satellite Office 30 Walk between Townhouse Hotel and USA Embassy!,On the  same right side Roxas Blvd  just before Buendia Road. Picture Coming Soon!
