F1 Hotel Manila Staycation and Review

F1 Hotel Manila Staycation and Review



If you are looking for another place to stay in Manila, I have another place that you might find it convenient and relaxing.

I did stayed for couple of times at F1 Hotel Manila in Bonifacio Global City.


The hotel is just a few minutes’ drive from my place in the heart of the busy district. Whenever I feel bored and needs to relax and regain my energy, I opt to stay in different place, and F1 Hotel Manila is one of my choice.

During my first stay, I’ve got this deluxe room for myself.

I used Expedia in booking of all my hotel accommodation because I find it more convenient, plus gives me amazing rebates for every stay (I will share the story on a separate post). But for my F1 Hotel stay, my boyfriend booked this place for me! He is using Expedia Italia and both of us are using the Expedia app.




The Deluxe Room with 1 bedroom have all the amenities that I need for my 3-days stay. I’ve got an amazing receiving area for where I could rest, and not directly to my room, which is pretty awesome.

The layout and designs are quite minimalist in gray and brown combination, with a cozy lighting which is cool. That couch is good too, where I enjoyed watching lots of HBO movies. I’ve also got a working table where I spent a lot of time, writing and editing my drafts and photos for my blog. My room is also equipped with telephone, and free wifi connection which is very convenient.

And here’s my bed!

Very spacious for someone like me and I love it!

But if my boyfriend is around, definitely this bed is quite small for us.

I like how clean the duvet are and they regular change it upon my request. At the bedside also has an available telephone plus directory, some writing pads and pencil.

The minimalist layout is quite impressive and those lights setting are good that makes this room so inviting to sleep in.

The bathroom is also nice and super clean, and also equipped with generous amount of toiletries and clean white towels, and hot-and-cold shower. But no bathtub.. Ah am pretty disappointed about it.

My room also got a mini-fridge and small bar! It is also equipped with coffee makers and complimentary tea, coffee and bottled water.




A total of 240-rooms are available in F1 Hotel Manila, all with free wifi access and iPod docks. Also got a 24-hour room service, televisions (my room got two televisions) and free local newspapers.
It also comes with free breakfast, which I also love and free wifi access to all their public areas. They also have a bar/lounge, a poolside bar and a coffee shop/café but I didn’t visit them during the course of my stay.

My first stay here at F1 Hotel Manila was a very memorable and relaxing weekend, and no wonder after few months, I’ve stayed here for my second staycation!

But this time, I’ve got this studio-type room that is much smaller than my previous room. It also have a receiving area, a minibar equipped with coffeemaker and complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water, a space for my luggage and cabinet to hang my clothes, they even have an iron rack inside.

My sofa is much smaller than my previous room, however the room is brighter than my first room. I’ve also got a small working table next to my twin beds.

And here’s my twin bed. This is the only available room during that time, so I decided to grab it anyway. But if you are staying here with your family, you can moved these bed together to form a bigger bed.

My bathroom was quite smaller than my first room, and also doesn’t have a bathtub. They also provide me clean towels and toiletries and tissue papers, and at least they have a functional hot-and-cold shower.

Having a staycation in F1 Hotel Manila also got me an opportunity to gain my energy and got inspired to create more content for my website. Sometimes I need a change of environment to get inspired. Though my apartment is also comfortable, my inner personal treat it as very mundane place so most of the time, inspiration flies out of my window (LOL).




During my staycation, I also got time to watch my favorite shows on nearby cinema (yeah I rarely watch movies) and also visit the new stores in the city. It is important that I should know these places because my website/blog is becoming a city guide! And that’s awesome.

However, I didn't bother visiting its restaurant, swimming pool and the gym because these places are not my cup of tea during that time. Not only I was focused on my writing, but also I've seen these amenities prior of my staycation and I don't find them appealing at all. So why bother?

Besides there are many awesome restaurants surrounding the hotel, so it's a great opportunity to hop in!

How much is the average cost of room at F1 Hotel Manila?

The average cost ranges from Php6,000 to 8,000 depending on the type of room available. Do check availability via Expedia for updated pricing.

If you will ask if you can bring your furry best-friend around, then the answer is NO. Though the city per se is pet-friendly, there are many hotels, including F1 Hotel Manila that doesn’t allowed pets to check-in. Sad but true, you have to leave your pets at home with their nannies or let them have their own staycation at the nearby pet lounging house.

All staffs are very polite and very accommodation. If you need a meeting room for you suddenly client meetings, they also have available room for you, fully equipped with supplies and technical facilities like projectors, lights and sound, etc. You just ask them and they will provide.

They also offer a long-stay term. Contact them for this offer and you can avail a discount rate for long-stay.

  4. The room, while it might have been smaller than the one you were allotted the first time you were there, does still look quite comfortable. The look on your face also conveys that you were quite relaxed and happy. :)

  8. This hotel definitely looks and sounds quite chic. The rooms look comfortable and luxurious enough. Definitely worth a stay for a weekend or 3-4 days.

  9. Staycations are definitely a great way to relax and unwind in a familiar environment. Nevertheless, I'd rather spend the money travelling to another part of the world as I'd be able to experience local cultures and traditions better and be able to try out new things that aren't available in my home country.

  10. The idea of the 'staycation' has really taken off over the past decade. You certainly have found a lovely hotel to take a break and relax in. While I understand you are disappointed about not having a bath, the rooms you stayed in definitely look comfortable, modern and clean...plus free wifi and breakfast is pretty good!

  14. I've read a lot of good reviews about the hotel, in fact they ranked #4 (Taguig City Hotels) in TripAdvisor. Their rooms are very spacious and well appointed. I think now they have offers for as low as Php3,800/night including breakfast for 2 persons.

    1. Yeah sometimes they have that, but it wasn't as nice as this room. Nowadays, they are offering a bit lower price because of higher competition. Many new hotels are popping now in her Taguig.
