LOOK: Simple, old-world charm + convenience at Amelie Hotel in Malate, Manila

Amelie. The word reminded me of the spirited and charming French woman in the movie with the same title. Indeed, I saw that simple style and charm at Amelie Hotel Manila, where my friends and I stayed for a weekend. Its interiors are art deco-inspired, too, fitting enough as this style originated from France, and Amelie, after all, is French.

The rooms are simple and charming, too, and usually offers views of the city.

Later, I found out that the hotel is named after the owner’s granddaughter, who is also said to be charming and adorable.

I love the vibrant red accents in the hotel design.

What I personally like is also Amelies’s rooftop pool. It is a perfect place to swim or simply relax, while enjoying the Manila skyline. That was what we did when we stayed for a while on the roof deck.

The rooftop is also a nice place to just hang out and chill.

More reds at the rooftop. There is also a gym at the rooftop for those who want to keep their fitness routine while staying at Amelie, though I was not able to take a look at it.

For its charm, Amelie has quite a reasonable price, too.  Via booking sites, a room starts at over P2,000, close to P3,000 with buffet breakfast. P3,000 up is quite the common price, though.

The hotel has a convenient location, too, being just a less than ten-minute walk away from the train station, particularly the LRT. The mall Robinson’s Place is also accessible by walking.

Below are other photos of our relaxing stay to give you an idea what you can anticipate when you stay there, too.

People at the front desk were quite responsive during our stay.

Encased in glass at the lobby is a crowd-stopping carved balangay. Cool! I checked this out for a while.

Reds again at the room! Not complaining, though. Red is a vibrant color for a theme.

Love the art deco-inspired map posters on the walls of Amelie’s rooms, too. Tourists, especially foreigners, can actually refer to this map.

At the lobby, computers are provided for free use to guests. Perfect feature especially if guests are staying on business.

We had breakfast at Braska, a restaurant adjoining Amelie’s lobby. Will talk about the experience there in one of my future blog posts.

Like Amelie Hotel, Braska has charming interiors, too!
