Henry Hotel Manila is more than a hotel…it’s a true cultural gem. Many of Manila’s Spanish (16th – 19th century) and American (19th-early 20th century) colonial era buildings were destroyed in WW2 or in systematic razing common in the 1960s. This said, the Henry Hotel Manila is a treat; a refreshing throwback to an earlier era of the Philippines. All building materials are apparently original, coming from old heritage houses.
The rustic architecture breathes life into the gorgeous, green hotel grounds.
Food and drink at the Henry Hotel Manila are also superb. The in-house restaurant “Apartment 1B” has other locations in Manila and at the Henry, serves breakfast from 7 am to 3 pm.
There’s a lot of selection on their breakfast menu – organic waffles, omelettes, croque madames, and so forth. Their “Egg White Scramble” (below) is spot on and includes grilled veggies, a mixed green salad, and home fries.
Below is their “Fruit Plate”, which comes with a side of cottage cheese.
For lunch and dinner, they have everything from Mac and Cheese to Whole Wheat Spaghetti.
All pictures below are from one of their Suites.
In the Suite, there’s one TV in the living room and another in the bedroom.
The bathroom includes an old-school acrylic clawfoot bathtub. The bedroom TV can be seen from the bathtub…it doesn’t get any better than this.
