Seeing the area of Malate and Ermita decay a few years back saddened me. But if you visit the place now, you notice businesses flourish again. Pubs, retail spaces and dining spots abound. The night streets are alive again. Add to this, a handful of new hotels have opened in recent years cashing in on the increased tourist arrival in what is the historical core of the Philippine capital.
One of these accommodations is Amelie Hotel--- a boutique hotel with a character that is true to the rich heritage of the city of Manila. A hotel that both backpackers and business travelers will love.
It is located just a few blocks from Robinsons Ermita so it is easy to spot.
The hotel offers 70 rooms designed not just for aesthetics but for utmost convenience.
Intimate, stylish and warm
First, the lobby. Intimate, stylish and warm. One can easily notice the unique furniture that match the modern yet classy vibe of the hotel. The reception area is small but beautifully lit with a touch of simplicity. The receptionists calm, collected and quick on the job. One can also easily notice the local vibe at the lobby elevator entrance with an image of Manila City Hall as well as old colonial buildings incorporated on the wall design. The hallways are clean, carpeted and well lighted.
Amelie Hotel offers three room types ---deluxe 1, deluxe 2 and executive.

Iron / Ironing Board
Baby Bath Tub
The bathroom, classy. Black dominates the tone. Complete with toiletries and a hair dryer fixed on the wall. I wished for a power shower but didn't get one. Ok enough though because it is easy to set the water heater. Would have been lovely if they have bath tub too.
by Mario's Kitchen
GALLEON by Mario’s Kitchen, the restaurant wing of Amelie Hotel, got its inspiration from the fact that Manila (specifically port of Manila nearby) used to be the global trade connection of the Philippines through Galleon Trade during the Spanish occupation. Not only the interior of the restaurant with maps and portraits hanged on a wood accented wall and the overall feel of the place is consistent with this theme but also with the food choices. Galleon by Mario's Kitchen offers both Philippine, Spanish and International dishes.
The good food, ambiance, the comfortable chairs, the watchful eye of the staff will make you enjoy this place.
