A new year means new beginnings. And for a lovely boutique hotel located in the old-world neighborhood of Malate, the Chinese New Year signals the start of a prosperous life right in the heart of the city. Opening its doors to guests who value a well-rounded city experience is Amélie Hotel Manila.
Amélie Hotel Manila enjoys a great location in the bohemian district of Malate, Manila, surrounded by a neighborhood rich in culture, historical landmarks, a major shopping mall (Robinsons Manila), restaurants, and a colorful nightlife. The business districts of Makati and Fort Bonifacio are a short drive away as well as both domestic and international airports. Numerous transport options – from public commutes to private vehicles – are mere steps from the hotel’s beautifully-designed glass entrance.
After taking in the sights and experiences of the city, settling down for the night at Amélie Hotel is its own reward with guest rooms promising an enriching stay. Choose from Deluxe or Executive rooms with all the amenities of a comfortable accommodation. Simple, yet striking, each room and hallway is designed to reflect the old-world aesthetic of Manila, its rich cultural texture, and charm.
With the handiwork of noted interior stylist Anton Barretto, rooms are designed in a modern minimalist style with chic furniture, and art deco inspired accents, framed photos or visual representations of fascinating facets of Manila’s culture, and an oversized map of Metro Manila to act as decorative elements. The map that is a design element in all rooms will also serve as an actual guide to help tourists navigate the streets of Malate and landmark the sites of Metro Manila.
The rooms also feature an interesting design motif: a stylized, linear canopy that sets the bed apart and gives the room more depth and dimension. All rooms come with large and comfortable queen-sized beds and are equipped with essential amenities such as a 32-inch flat screen LED TV and Wi-Fi.
Inspired by the bohemian spirit of old Malate, Amélie Hotel Manila incorporates works by contemporary artists in Manila today. “We wanted to bring something new to the Malate scene by giving our guests a sampling of Manila’s local contemporary and hip culture. We will be collaborating with the new wave of artists – painters, photographers, graphic designers, fashion designers and musicians in Manila – and give them a venue to showcase their art. By doing so, we will be able to give our guests a well-rounded experience of Manila, Malate in particular,” says Amélie Hotel Manila brand director Mark Abellon.
Serving as the hotel’s official food and beverage concessionaire is Galleon by Mario’s Kitchen. Serving Filipino and international cuisine, Galleon has a wide array of familiar dishes cooked and prepared in ingenious ways. The restaurant welcomes in-house and walk-in guests and is open from 7am to 12 midnight.
Managed by Paramount Hotels & Facilities Management Co. Inc, service will be an important aspect of the Amélie Hotel Manila experience. “There are many structures like Amélie Hotel Manila in the Malate area, but none offers the kind of service we will give. We are a boutique hotel giving four-star service to our guests. This will be carried out through our professional, efficient, but extremely warm service. It is the small details and gestures given with sincerity that will set Amélie Hotel Manila apart,” stresses Amélie Hotel Manila general manager Jose Antonio Sacluti.
