I've stayed at a number of hotels in Makati, and would return to the Durban for a short stay. The rooms are basic, but they have all you expect from a budget hotel. Slightly unusual in our room was that it had a safe, but no hair dryer. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel, but had dinner in the...

Fell in love with the simple beauty that Hotel Durban exudes. The room is simple but functional. The bed is sturdy and promotes a good night sleep. Toilet is well spaced and the inclusion of a sofa lounger makes the room more cozy. Could not understand the green bottles though but that is just me. Wifi is strong and getting...

This is my nth time staying in Hotel Durban. Restaurant serves mouthwatering food and excellent for dinning The newly renovated room assigned to me is excellent and cozy. Probably one (1) area management should take a look is the WiFi connection. I notice inside the room the signal drops from time to time.
