This is a hotel for you to reminiscent the old RP of the sixties. Traditional, grand, somewhat arrogant feel, aristocratic. Was assigned a room near the lift; noisy. However the room is very spacious. Chose this hotel instead of others opposite and in the vicinity because I had wanted to try to grand dame. Staff was helpful, par excellence; gave... More

Definitely not the flagship property for Intercontinental in the region, but there is something to it that at the end made a pleasant stay. The hotel itself is in great need of a refresher, the 70s look and feel is still very pleasant despite what looks like a "soft" re-do in the early 90s. Public areas a re nice, lighted... More

Yes, it is an Intercontinental Hotel: conveniently located, with the amenities you expect, with friendly service, ok restaurants and not so ok other facilities...but it does not live up to the standard of other hotels of the brand. Everything in the room was tired, used, outdated and in serious need of a renovation plus a design overhaul to give the... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for letting us know of your feedback. Please allow me to apologize for your dissatisfaction with the overall ambiance of InterContinental Manila.

The hotel is centrally located in the heart of the city and it's surrounded by 3 or 4 malls. The staff are very friendly and always ready to assist you. They have delicious food for breakfast and a lot of choices too. We will definitely stay again here.

The staff are, by far, the best thing about this hotel - always smiling, friendly and ready to assist. The breakfast and food and drinks in the Club lounge are also excellent. However, the hotel is let down by the quality of its rooms, which are badly in need of a facelift. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which... More
