Orion Hotel in Manila - Location
3rd Floor Primeblock Building
Tutuban Center, CM Recto Avenue
Orion Hotel in Manila, Philippines is located right in the heart of Tutuban, one of the city's top commercial centers that have been in existence for more than a century. Found on the 3rd floor of the Primeblock Building, it is connected to the Tutuban Cluster Mall on the same floor, and is just across the historic Tutuban Centermall.
A few minutes' walk from the commercial center is the terminus station of the Philippine National Railway (PNR) system. Trains from the Tutuban Station currently offer nightly trips to Naga City, Camarines Sur and Ligao, Albay. Moreover, a provincial bus terminal is also in the vicinity. Hence, it is not only the ideal accommodation in Manila for shoppers, but also for travelers bound south as well.
Originally a railway hub for the city of Manila, Tutuban got its name from 2 things — the “toot-toot” sound of the colonial-era locomotives and tuba, a local alcoholic beverage. Today, it is more known among Filipinos as a bargain shopping paradise, especially for the vast range of textiles and garments sold in the area. With the 19th-century railway station restored and converted into the Tutuban Centermall, plus the expansive night market on its streets, the name Tutuban has now become synonymous with great value.
Orion Hotel's location is also near the following places of interest:
- Tutuban Centermall
- Binondo – the oldest Chinatown in the world
- Escolta Museum – inside Calvo Building, along Escolta St.
- Rizal Park and Quirino Grandstand
- 168 Mall, Manila Textile Market, and Divisoria – all ideal for bargain-hunting
- Lucky Chinatown Mall
- 30 minutes away from NAIA
With its unique location, other Manila hotels will find it hard to compete with Orion Hotel.
