Pasig City is just 17 kilometers from the international airport in Metro Manila which makes it more tourist-friendly than neighboring cities like San Juan, Mandaluyong, and Quezon City. On a good day without traffic, the drive from the airport to the city proper of Pasig can only be 30 minutes. However, this becomes an hour or so since traffic has recently been unbearable. As it is, the city is accessible from the airport which has led districts of it to open hotels that range from budget to luxury. The number of such establishments have increased in the past decade so much so that even residents have learned to appreciate their presence by booking them for weekend staycation or special events.

Most of the luxury hotels can be found in Ortigas Center while the boutique and budget hotel brands have decided to take the vantage points near the city proper where most residents are. From unobstructed city views, swimming pool, to cozy restaurants, the hotel experience can vary depending on the type of room and the hotel location.

Check out the following hotels that you can book in Pasig City for your next getaway, layover or long stay:
