RAMADA MANILA CENTRAL Hotel along Ongpin Binondo Opens Today!

RAMADA MANILA CENTRAL Hotel  opens today.If at any rate you haven't heard of it, don't blame yourself. As I said, today will be the first time it will be open to the public. What is Ramada Manila Central? It's the newest and most strategically located hotel in the historic street of Ongpin in Binondo Manila.

I was invited in the hotel the other day for a peek into what they have to offer and I am very excited to show it to you.First of all, I would like to say that the location of this new hotel is its prime advantage. We all love Binondo area right?And for those who haven't been to the place, you sure are missing something. Binondo is the oldest Chinatown in the world.That said, there's a lot of economic activity and history in the area.

I remember having my first photowalk here a few years ago and most newbie photographers surely know this.It has become a tradition for wannabe photographers to try street photography here as it offers a glimpse into the continuing metamorphosis of the old Chinatown , dynamic in its renewal while trying to maintain a legacy which dates back hundreds of years.

This new hotel, RAMADA MANILA CENTRAL  is a reflection of what is Binondo today--- "a fusion of history and contemporary"

 The hotel is professionally managed by Hospitality International, Inc. It will have 114 rooms and suites once it reaches full operation. Shops. News Cafe. Roofdeck Bar and Multipurpose Hall. An HSBC bank beside it. Beside Binondo Church. Near 168 and Divisoria .La Resurreccion, Eng Bee Tin, Wai Ying and Sincerity restaurants are withing WOKing distance. 
So wonder no more when you hear their tagline "Everything you need. Leave the rest to us." DSC_7296

WONDER about how the rooms are at your dream hotels?As a travel blogger, I get to check in to some of the best hotels and accommodations in the country---from budget to high end.And if the finances restricts, I get the privilege to peek inside the rooms by request. The thing is, we get curious at what to expect inside the rooms and the photos provided in the official websites of some hotels/resorts are not enough to satisfy that curiosity. Here in my PEEK INSIDE SERIES, you get to see more photos of the accommodations you are eying for on your next travel destination..........

Here's a peek a peek inside RAMADA MANILA CENTRAL Hotel

starts at 5,500php 

25 sq. meter of  fresh interiors.Asian inspired rooms.nice furnitures.Centralized air-conditioning.High speed internet.Direct dial phone.32 inches plasma tv with cable channels.Overhead shower and tub.

I heard that they are near accreditation for a 4-star hotel category so I was really surprised at how low their introductory prices are.Yeah, their SUITES are priced at 9,000php nett and that's 48 sq.meters. Good deal!

32 inches Samsung tv
a work station 
 Binondo history on the walls

25-27 sq.m -- 6,500php ++

The hotel targets Chinese Businessmen who frequent Binondo for commerce but that doesn't mean they are neglecting the domestic market. According to Ms. Luisa Bernabe, the Marketing Director of Ramada Manila Central, they also recognize the value of domestic clients.

One testament to that is the free shuttle service from SM-MOA to the Hotel, with drop off points in Divisoria and Luneta Park.


 27-33 sq.m --- 7,800 php ++

This is the best fit for me. Executive rooms and Suites have bath tub. I looove bath tubs!!! :)


48sq.meter ---9,000php ++

A room this BIG for only 9,000 pesos? Some condominium units are even smaller!It's so spacious you can play hide and seek with your family.hahaha. The room has two (2) 42 inches LG plasma tv's. Nice!

the work desk

 Public Transportation: LRT, MRT, FX, buses, jeepneys, tricycle, ferry, kuliglig and horse drawn carriages!!! Cutting it shortly: ALL modes of transportation.


Part of the room leading to the beds have wooden floors.I find that a plus for sanitation.I love carpets but we have to admit it, they get easily dirty and some hotels have problems maintaining its cleanliness. I see the classic feel of the wooden floor a welcome thing.



 Aside from the well-appointed rooms and world-class amenities such as a ballroom, Premiere Lounge, recreational facilities and restaurants. Ramada Manila Central is sure to fulfill the needs of every business and leisure traveler.



We all know that Binondo is the place where most of our fire volunteers are located ayt? That means a lot for the safety wary traveler like me. :)

Finally! A hotel located at the heart and soul of old Manila!

RAMADA MANILA CENTRAL Hotel will definitely be the place for our next hotel staycation and I am so excited as early as now. I already have a lot in my list of  the food and places to try in the area. Binondo food walk, Binondo Church.the walled streets of Intramuros to name a few, and my list is getting longer and longer.My wife even added that she wants to go to Divisoria again. Perfect because I heard of this new mall that Megaworld developed---- the high end LUCKY CHINATOWN MALL.
 I can't wait!!!!
