So you and your boo need some privacy after a romantic date. But you’ve got a horde of visiting relatives at home, and car sex just isn’t working out. Don’t worry, the night isn’t ruined. Throughout the city, you can check motels round the clock. Many have both hourly and full-night options. Some even serve breakfast! Here’s a list of accommodations where you can let loose without overspending.
In the heart of the Malate district, Orange Nest Hotel is a clean, comfortable place to get cozy with your partner. In fact, this isn’t budget motel. But because they’re offering a massive discount on Metrodeal, the cash you save on your stay can be spent indulging on the roof deck bar or in-house bistro.
A favorite for travellers on a budget, Stone House Hotel has the safe, quaint feel of a bed and breakfast (they fold their towels like swans!). So it’s perfect for couples who want an affordable staycation. Usually, rooms go for about P1,500, but you can book one at a 30 percent discount on Agoda.
This place knows what lovers need. Not only does their food menu offer aphrodisiacs to help get you in the mood, but they’ve also let guests rent a room by the hour. That way, if you only have time for a quickie, you don’t need to be stuck with a hefty bill. Just keep in mind that booking the shortest package, and paying a fee for each additional hour will be more expensive than just booking a 12-hour package. Plan ahead!
Despite having the word budget in its name, the Ortigas Budget Hotel is one of the more expensive accommodations on this list. But what’s great about this beautiful hotel, with free WiFi, and sleek furnishings—is that it’s also in a fun neighborhood with tons of things to do. And if you don’t plan on leaving the room at all, there 24-hour room service. Private rooms start at about P1,500.
For picky couples, the Manila Manor Hotel offers an Old World charm at an affordable price. Their rooms have television sets, a minibar, and round-the-clock security. Still, you can have all that for less than P900 on Agoda.
Hot and cold showers, a complimentary breakfast, and excellent service. These are just a few reasons your romantic getaway at Royale Parc Inn & Suites will be a major upgrade from the backseat of the car. And even those without cars will find it convenient to get to their branches via public transport. You can book a room for about P1,000 on Hotels.com.
This well-reviewed hotel offers a variety of rooms hovering around the P1,000-mark. Located on a relatively isolated corner of SLEX and EDSA, this is a great spot for a discreet rendezvous. Plus, the other guests are mostly travelers waiting for their morning flight, so you and your partner are safe to be as open as you want to be.
Eurotel caters to business travelers who want to blend pleasure into their trip. But who says locals can’t enjoy the cozy rooms with a distinct European flare? It’ll be like a foreign vacation, right at home. Before booking, do a quick search for promos. For a limited time, at the Makati branch, you can book a 12-hour stay for just P999.
This international chain offers fully-equipped rooms for less than P1,000. But for even more savings, download their app. Booking through it will be much cheaper than going through other channels. Also, follow them on Facebook or Instagram for promo codes, which they post regularly.
For a kinky retreat, book a room at one of Halina Hotel’s multiple branches. Be sure to book a room with mirrors installed around the bed, so you don’t miss any of the good stuff. It costs less than P900 for a standard room if you book through Agoda.
