Amelie Hotel’s management was very accommodating and helpful to us. They even let us have ocular visit on each of their room categories. We were also supposed to book a room to secure a room review but they gave us for free with breakfast for 2!! (complimentary). I just couldn’t be more grateful!

The Century Park Hotel opened its doors in September 1976 and recently gone under renovations in 2018. Although we didn’t get to have an ocular visit in other room categories, we still had fun checking-out their amenities. This is by far my favorite pick amongst all the Manila Hotels we went to.
