Getting to your Hotel

FROM NINOY AQUINO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

The most common means of going to your accommodation from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) would be by taxi. However, we also recommend other means depending on your needs. Below are some ways on how you would reach your hotel or inn from the airport.

 Airport Taxi (Yellow)

The most convenient transportation as you arrive in Manila would be the yellow airport taxis. You can immediately hail one right when you step out of the arrival area. Take note, though, that the convenience is off-set by their steep metered price.

Rate:

  • ₱70.00 for flag-down and first 500 meters
  • ₱4.00 per next 300 meters
  • ₱4.00 every 2 minutes standing in traffic

Common Taxi (White)

A cheaper alternative to yellow airport taxis would be the white common taxis.

Rate:

  • ₱40.00 for flag-down and first 300 meters
  • ₱3.50 per next 300 meters
  • ₱3.50 every 2 minutes standing in traffic

Grab

Nowadays, e-hailing applications have become in demand due to the relatively greater sense of efficiency and safety they provide than common taxis. One of the most popular in the Philippines, and in many parts of Southeast Asia, is Grab (previously GrabTaxi and MyTeksi). Other than in Metro Manila, Grab also operates in Baguio, Cebu, Iloilo and Davao.

  • Reliable internet connection
