  • A bed and breakfast is usually just that: a place to sleep for the night and have breakfast in the morning. La Casita Mercedes offers more than just your average bed and breakfast: it gives you a mini blast-in-the-past from the moment you check-in.

    THROWBACK. You’ll get a dose of pre-war times at La Casita Mercedes in Poblacion.

     

    La Casita Mercedes started off as a family residence in 1939, back when Makati wasn’t the Makati we know today. It underwent renovations back in mid-2012, and was reopened to the public in 2015. It’s probably the only place in Makati where you can get a sense of what it would’ve felt like to live in the Philippines pre-WWII, with a few modern niceties.

    Located in the heart of Poblacion, La Casita is perfect for anyone looking to explore Makati and its neighboring cities. Century City and Rockwell Center, two of the posh shopping centers in Makati, are only 10-15 minutes away on foot. The row of restaurants and bars along Burgos and Polaris Streets are less than 5 minutes away, while Makati’s Central Business District is no more than 10 minutes away on wheels.

    PATIO. A must-visit when you’re at La Casita Mercedes.

     

    La Casita feels more like a home than a hotel: perfect for people who are tired of the same look every time they travel. Where else can you find rooms that both transport you back to pre-WWII times while still having modern amenities like air conditioning and WiFi? Oh, and did we mention they serve good breakfast?
