Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Hotels Near Manila Airport (NAIA Terminal 1, 2, 3, 4): Cheap Room Rate and Travel Time

    To answer questions from people looking for accommodations and budget hotels near Manila Airport (officially Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)) to stay at for those who who have to wait for connecting flights or just to be comfortable striking distance from NAIA.

    Note that the word "near" is relative and needs to be defined first for it to be used in this post and will not answer questions on "how far is this hotel" from the airport kind of thing. Tutubi will just use approximate travel time, not absolute distance from the airport terminals as reference.

    Guide to Sleeping at Airports or near them?

    The nearest hotel to NAIA Terminal 1 (International Airport) is located inside the airport terminal, on the fourth floor Terminal 1 beside Sampaguita lounge. Each of the twelve air-conditioned hotel rooms measures 3x3 meters, with double beds and private shower and toilet and can be had a room rate of US$19.00 (about PhP840.00) for 24 hours stay.

    The nearest hotels to NAIA Terminal 3 are luxury Marriott Hotel, Maxim's Hotel, Remington Hotel and Belmont condotel and the planned Hamilton Hotel inside the spanking Newport City opposite the terminal on Andrew's Avenue. It's also very near to the other airport terminals.

    The nearest hotel to NAIA Terminal 2 used to be the government-owned Philippine Village Hotel but is closed indefinitely.

    UPDATED: June 2014

    List of hotels in "nearness order" from the airport:

    Hotels and (seedy) Motels in Pasay at the corner of EDSA and F.B. Harrisson St. not recommended for tourists unless you're looking for some "action" and hassles
    Kabayan Hotel Pasay on EDSA near Corner Taft Avenue, walking distance from MRT and LRT Stations (remarks: accessible by public transportation)

    30 minutes to an hour from Manila Airport:

    List mostly on five star, four star or three star hotel accommodations, even budget hotels
    No information on the cheapest room rates available.
    Please visit official websites for inquiries and reservations.
    Travel time is based on taxi travel from the airport and will be much less on lean times i.e. late night, dawn and early mornings.

    A typical dawn trip of Tutubi from Quezon City to the airport takes about an hour via EDSA and costs PhP300.00 on the taxi meter fare. Metered taxi fare from the airport to Makati CBD is just around PhP150.00 (a little over US$3)

    This site does not offer online booking nor promo room rates, it's just a rough guide to hotels near Manila airport for your reference so as not to be misled by other websites on the distance of your chosen hotel from your airport disregarding practical travel times and normal traffic situations.

    I thought this site is about backpacking ? What about economic places to stay like Malate Penisone, maybe Tropicana etc ? Don't think Shangri La Makati is a place for backpackers.

    anonymous, yeah for backpacking but I sometimes digress ;P besides the post says hotels near the airport, not cheap backpacker accommodations nor pension houses near the airport so why complain? Pension houses are not hotels :P

    One of the better, cheaper hotels is located in metropolitan Avenue called the El Rico. I have stayed there twice and when i return I shall stay there again. The rooms are reasonable in price, usually about 1,400 php per night for a double, that is large clean and very tidy, We have a large bedroom, a lounge and shower/ toilet combined. There was a CTV with usual cable channels, as well as free wifi in the hotel Lobby. There is an armed guard on the door 24hours a day and theye are very helpful. The taxi fare to and from the hotel to the port and also the the airport is no more than 250 php. The hotel will organise a good taxi driver when you check out or if you are travelling around. There is lots to do, go round the corner and ask for " Nido " the tricycle driver. he will take you on an informative tour for 100 pesos. there are num,erous eating houses in the region, But the best by far is the Bacolod chicken Express, right by the Tricyle stand ! Enjoy the stay I always do !!!!
