Hotel Review: Discovery Suites Manila, Ortigas Centre Pasig

For most of my trip to Manila, I stayed over at the boyfie’s house, but we also spent a night with his fam on a staycation at Discovery Suites Manila in Ortigas Centre, Pasig. This was one of the places I looked up while searching for hotels but decided to skimp on to save money.

Located at the heart of the Ortigas business/commercial district and just steps away from SM Megamall, the 4-star serviced suites cuts an impressive figure and spans more than a dozen floors, with various facilities such as a swimming pool and a coffee house. The whole place exudes a cosy ambience, thanks to the warm yellow lighting. Since it was Christmas, the lobby boasted a giant Christmas tree and decorations which gave it a festive atmosphere.

There are different configurations to suit your needs, from junior (studio) to three-room configurations. Since N has a big family, we stayed at the three-room suite, which measures 140 square metres. I was impressed. Spacious and nicely furnished, it looked like an expensive but homely apartment. Polished wooden floors, soft fluffy rugs and sofas, TV and a large study desk made up the living room, while a huge wooden dining table with matching chairs were placed near the entrance.

N and I took the third room which had two super-single beds. The duvets were soooo fluffy and soft, I literally sank into them. โค They also gave us plenty of pillows. Also in the room was a closet and our very own TV. The adjoining bathroom didn’t have a bathtub but came with a shower and glass partition. I think the overall setup is ideal for families and business travelers who want the feel of a private residence coupled with hotel amenities.

Welcome cookies/cakes!

N and I went to the swimming pool (no pix though). It wasn’t that big but sufficient to have a dip. Also enjoyed the jacuzzi pool although it was small and people kept hogging it. .__.

All in all I enjoyed my stay! I loved the unit we stayed in. I hope to have a nice apartment like that some day ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. About 5-6 people. Accommodation in Manila is quite pricey compared to KL. Based on experience. Coz if it’s too cheap people use it as a love hotel haha. Clean, basic ones cost about RM150 on average.
