pension-natividad-007.jpgPension Natividad – Malate, Manila

Gabby and Lea welcome you with a comfortable place to stay during your visit to Manila.The Pension Natividad up the street from the Malate Church is a favorite of US Peace Corps volunteers.

There is a shaded patio that offers protection from the sun if you want to eat outdoors. It’s really nice on hot days!

img_3547.jpgGuys that have filipina girlfriends are not encouraged to stay here because there is a strong Catholic influence in the management and they do not want to be a short time place for people that have just left the bars in the area.

Manila is not a budget destination anymore unless you choose to stay at the low end local pension houses which often refuse foreigners just to avoid the hassle.

img_3554.jpgGabby seems to be a down to earth type of guy and has an accommodating style.

His staff has gotten more efficient over the years and they speak fairly good English.

There is a basketball court and off street parking available but check with Gabby for availability.

Dorm room – 400 peso
Rooms with fan – outside cr are 900 pesos.
Rooms with fan – inside cr are 1,000 pesos
AC Rooms – 1,400 pesos

pension-natividad-011.jpgThe patio gets a cool breeze and is a great place to relax with a cup of coffee. The kitchen has a good menu and it’s reasonably priced.

  5. Hello me and my partner be coming over in July and have had suggestions we should stay at pention natividad Malate Manila. Just writing to ask how much is it poor night. Looking at staying in manila for atles 5 days???????????

    Thank You

  6. hi i will be arriving on march 01,2009 in manila , to be able to stay at your place should i call first or just drop by and ask for the room?..

  7. hello i’ve been researching about Pension Natividad thats why I got to this site. Read good reviews about this place. Im going to the US embassy, can u tell me how near it is or how far it is from the US embassy? where exacty is it? is it walkable to the embassy or do we have to ride transpo? in some sites it says Pension Natividad is in Ermita but here you say its in Malate? (theres a big difference you know Malate is a little far from the embassy). Is Pension Natividad the same street as Ermita Church (the church near US embassy)? can you give me landmarks as to where it is? I hope that you could help me answer my questions, coz I’ll be bringing a 2 yr old child, I read that Pension Natividad is a decent place. I’ve stayed before in Hotel Juliano its very very near the US emabssy though but I dont wana stay there this time coz it doesnt seem like a family-oriented place and I dont want my child to be in a place like that….

  8. thank you very much for your reply. the infos you gave are very helpful. i’ll keep your advises in mind. im gona buy a map of Ermita to get me familiarize w/ the streets. geee i hate all cabs/taxis in Manila (whether moving or not) coz they have the tendency to take you in circles and even if its so near they charge you w/ a fix price. anyway, I’ve already made up my mind, were gona stay in Pension Natividad. thanks again.

    Kind regards,

  17. -I will stay here again as I always do in Manila. I feel safe, it is clean & friendly.
    -It does have a christian blessing & attitude which is why I purposefully stay there.
    -I know God honors a hotel owner who does not want to be a place who willfully supports fornication / adultery / sexual sin.
    -I was once at the front desk & saw them turn away business when a man with a lady friend tried to book a room but could not prove they were married ( it was obvious to me too !) I say Right On !!! That man offered to double the price but compromise for cash/sin was not acceptable to front desk. That is so cool !!
    -When I was leaving Philippines to get married on our 1st day of arrival in hawaii, my fiancee stayed in one room with (her Auntie) & I in another room. We did this in hawaii for 1 st night too. The hotel staff in waikiki was amazed but pleased to see that some people still think that this is honorable; wait until marriage. It is a sign of respect for both people & their families.
    Okay I will always send business is quiet too.
    I will callin my reservation this week for my in /out manila stays as I enter &leave Philippine during April & May ’09
    I always recommend this Pension for budget travellers who are willing to respect their house rules.
    God is Good people.
    Enjoy the friendly people of Philippine. Show respect.
