gwapotel

Gwapotel is a portmanteau of Guapo a Spanish or Filipino term which mean goodlooking and Hotel. Gwapotel Inn is run by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) under the leadership of Chairman Bayani F. Fernando, and was put up in order to provide safe, decent lodgings for out-of-towners or Metro Manila workers on a frugal budget.

For only P25 ( P20 for a night’s stay, P5 for a bath) you can have a place to stay for the night. a place for transients... if only i'm a boy i'll try this gwapotel :) This Gwapotel is located at Abad Santos, a 3-story lodging house at Tondo, Manila, in the abandoned 2,800-sq.m. Emmanuel Hospital. The first Gwapotel Inn is a 4-story “hotel” on Bonifacio Drive, Port Area, Manila.

OMG! He's just all over the place! And that horrid pink and blue! I just took a photo of some poor community's houses along Katipunan that he painted — AUGHHHHHHHHH!

Sigh. This project is good, but it's not really new. Illac Diaz first set up a place for transient seamen in Intramuros almost a decade ago but ran into problems with the landowner. Ah well.
