Amidst the high-rise and modern buildings at the heart of Makati, there lie a few preserved buildings that showcase architectural elements from yesteryears. One of these buildings is La Casita Mercedes, a pre-colonial home in the Poblacion area built in the 1930s and has now been transformed into a bed-and-breakfast place.
It took owner Juan Ramos two years to bring the once-beat house back to its former glory, doing a few modifications in order to make it fit as a staycation destination boasting of nine rooms that will give you a feel of old Manila living.
