The Clipper Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The clipper is a great central hotel for the Makati area, if you’re looking for a budget hotel of 2/3 star quality then this is the one.

Very handy for bars and restaurants, the room and bedding was clean with a small fridge (no mini bar), safe, air conditioning, it even has a hair dryer if needed.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room on the higher floor if you want it a little quieter.

The hotel reminded me of the art decco style famous in Miami. The staff were very attentive and would do anything to help. As was the owner. The rooms were good size clean and comfortable.
The wi-fi was accessible through out the hotel.

Anything you need shops, restaurants, bars are all located with in just a few minutes walk from the hotel.

I will definitely go back on my next trip

This was my 2nd time at the Clipper, still a great place. Very good customer service and attentive staff. They regularly check if you're enjoying your stay and if you need anything. The owner Sir Jon is also very personable and shares plenty of good travel tips. Its the customer service that attracted me back here.
I stayed in the Deluxe Room on the 3rd floor this time. I've tried all the rooms, and Deluxe was well worth it. You get a proper double bed (instead of 2 singles pushed together), kettle and cups, and a small refrigerator. Very clean, comfortable, spacious, and safe. Good location in Makati Manila, commercial and tourist area. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shopping malls, and markets near by. Free WiFi internet and desktop computer in the lobby. Even though its a hotel, the place feels like a home away from home.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good value for money, just depends on how big you want.

First up, I cannot believe how cheap this place is. I paid triple the price the week before in Hong Kong. So it was a gamble for me coming to The Clipper but I too read the reviews on here beforehand.

Very nice building, actually whilst I was in Manila I didn't see any hotel with more character. The aviation theme is quirky and cute too. I arrived, was quickly and courteously checked in to my room, it was large and spotless. What more could one ask for.

I didn't try the breakfast, but the laundry service was good and economical.

Most of all a hat tip to the wonderful and friendly staff. It was simply a lovely place to be.

It was my first visit to Manila and I had no idea at all about the geography, as others point out, it is really in the thick of the action but I didn't notice any street noise. It is also an easy and nice walk to Ayala Center with its malls and eateries.

Thanks The Clipper Hotel. I look forward to coming back one day

I have sent people to stay at this boutique hotel many times. Jon and his staff go out of their way to help any traveler out. The rooms are very clean, and everything works! Why pay for an expensive hotel nearby when for under 2,500 pesos you will get a very large room. Smaller rooms run for 1300 pesos.

Booked thr Clipper on the recommendation of two different friends as well as Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Clean spacious room with aircon and fan. Comfy bed and good shower. Would have liked to have had a fridge but for this price what you get is good value. Only downside was street noise and ligh coming through the window blinds in room 203.
