Description - Guesthouse

The Townhouse hotel is located 1. 5 miles (2. 5 km) from All four Manila Airports, NAIA 1, Centennial 2, domestic and NAIA on Manila Bay's palm tree lined Roxas Blvd. The Townhouse hotel is the only place in Manila that provides the blend of a warm, friendly meeting place for 'world travellers' in safe, clean, tourist style comfort at the lowest rates in Manila. We are happy to continue helping our guests really feel like they are 'home'. Welcome to the family of world travellers!!

Their first guests were five Swedish young men Bill met in Hong Kong who had met on the trans-Siberian railway and were heading to the Philippines; since then travellers from 93 countries have stayed at The Townhouse. After a few years, guests had written to Lonely Planet, Jens Peters' Publication and other travel guides recommending The Townhouse as a low budget, safe, clean and friendly place to stay in Manila. Now, after continuous improvements and expansion projects their guesthouse provides a warm, family atmosphere where travellers meet, exchange travel stories and enjoy the "magic" energy of world travel in a safe, comfortable setting with 32 unique bedrooms ( no two rooms the same ) with fan cooled and air-conditioned rooms and with private baths and share bathrooms and a newly relocated dormitory with 6 bedspaces in our unit 11.

We are recommended in Jens Peters' Philippines Guidebook, both in English and Deutsch, Lonely Planet's S. E. Asia on a Shoestring and their Philippines guidebooks among others.

Manila arrival: After immigration and customs, pass through the first set of sliding glass doors before going outside look for small taxi / transport booths,(one is Nissan taxi.) Give them our address, stress 'Tambo' so they know we're close by the airports and will not overcharge you which is common. When you arrive at our place you will be asked to sign the taxi receipt. Welcome home!!

Serving world travellers since 1986 - Guests from 93 Countries have been welcomed by Bill, Lorna and their Manila staff. Your “home away from home" and home base in the Philippines!

How to get there

MANILA ARRIVAL: Usually we advise our guests to take one of the Taxi / Transport services which is after immigration and customs and just outside the Ninoy Aquino International Airport ( NAIA ), line / queue up on the Taxi "island in front of the Domestic Airport, catch a taxi in front of Centennial Airport Terminal 2 or in front to the right at NAIA3 Airport Terminal . Recently our old friend Jerry living half the year in Sardinia arrived late at the NEW NAIA to find brand new yellow colored taxis waiting to pick up passengers charging only by their taxi meters but so far none of the other guests have mentioned that option.

1. Outside of Ninoy Aquino International Airport Road( NAIA Road ), after the second set of sliding glass doors, look to the LEFT for a transport booth. Last time I arrived I paid ONLY P108 so I paid the young driver P140.

At the METERED Taxi Counter to the left, give our address:

Villa Carolina Townhouse, 31 Bayview Drive & Roxas Blvd ( pronounced RO HOSS) TAMBO, Paranque, Metro-Manila, Philippines. This is 10 minutes from all 4 airport terminals and near Bayview Towers.

Stress "Tambo" so they know the location is near the airport. You will be given a receipt which you must sign when you arrive at The Townhouse Hotel!

or From all FOUR airports, you tell the taxi driver to follow NAIA Road & turn RIGHT on ROXAS BLVD until Bayview Towers is on your right. You're 1 minute away!

Continue straight on Roxas 150 meters. Turn RIGHT on the FIRST small street, BAYVIEW DRIVE. The Townhouse is 30 meters ahead on your left. WELCOME "HOME" !!

We are more than happy to pick you up at the ground floor ARRIVAL EXTENSION AREA across from the parking lot at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Of if you arrive at either the Centennial Terminal 2( Philippine Airlines ), the NEW Terminal 3 or at the Domestic airport just wait in front of the arrival area. Please call our land line Tel #s, if using local Cell / Mobile Prefix ( 02 ) if using pay phone then the # to request our driver, Cerilo to pick you up with either our medium blue Honda Civic or our blue Delica 7 passenger Van or please follow the directions above.
Townhouse Airport Service Rates from 6AM to Midnight
1 or 2 Persons P120
3 or 4 Persons P140
5 or 6 Persons P160

From Midnight to 6AM add P50 which goes directly to our driver for staying up or waking up early.

1. Change a little money inside the airport be sure and ask for small change in P1 peso coins for the phone. Okay?

2. When you first go outside the airport you can NOT see this area. You go through the second set of sliding glass doors and see a 4+ lane road with a dividing island. Whether you exit on the right or the left move toward the center and walk across the 4 lanes , proceed downward, turn left or right continue downward on the sloping ramp.

3. Call us from P1 coin pay phones. If using a local cell phone dial Prefix ( 02 ) We're only 1-1/2 miles ( 2. 7 KM ) away but with the traffic it should take 10 to 20 minutes. Look for a Medium Blue Honda Civic or Van with roof rack. We charge P130 for 1 or 2 persons & P150 for 3 or 4 persons & P200 for passengers with large pieces of luggage or Balikbayan boxes too large for our Honda Civic or 5, 6 or 7 persons in our Van.

Nearest airport: 1-1/2 Miles from NAIA 1, Centennial 2 & Domestic Airports, 2-1/2 miles NAIA 3 Airport Terminal
