If you are in the vicinity of Ortigas looking for a decent hotel to stay in that is not as expensive as the posh Shangri-la, there’s Malayan Plaza that you may want to try. It is along ADB Avenue, right across Podium and a walking distance to Megamall and St. Francis Square as well as to upscale coffeeshops.
Last December, while in Manila for a week, we stayed in Malayan for a few nights. The room is comfortable enough for a family of 4. However, during our brief stay, it was sorta tricky trying to fit in 2 adults and 3 kids (3-13 years old) on 2 double beds put together.
Their reasonable rate includes buffet breakfast for two. So while there, Matt and Kyle had the buffet breakfast while Jerry and I bought from outside. We felt we’d get more value for the buffet if we let those two “matakaw” boys avail of it. It absolutely delighted them.
Grabbed from their site, these are some of Malayan’s features/amenities:
* Fully furnished apartment complete with living, dining and kitchen facilities
* Fully equipped kitchen facilities include cooking equipment, crockery, cutleries, glassware, and oven toaster. Rice cooker and microwave oven is also available upon request.
* Hot and cold water
* Cable Network Television
* Outdoor Swimming Pool
* Open-air whirl pool
* Kiddie pool
* Fully equipped fitness center
* Mini Golf putting green
* Children’s Playroom
* Jogging Path
* Garden Deck
