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.
Later, I found out that the hotel is named after the owner’s granddaughter, who is also said to be charming and adorable.
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.
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.
We had breakfast at Braska, a restaurant adjoining Amelie’s lobby. Will talk about the experience there in one of my future blog posts.
Experience Amelie’s understated charm for yourself, too, to understand what I mean. Below are the hotel’s details:
