At first glance the room is good, but it had a certain smell. The food the hotel offers is very average in quality but the price one pays is quite high. I personally do not like the carpets inside the room. Also the room we had, had only one sink. I think it should come with two sinks because our... More

The Manila Peninsula is a wonderful place to stay! The spa is very nice, the lobby is like a photo from a postcard, the servicing of the room is second to none (with fresh fruit every day), wonderful restaurants and a very nice shop. On top of it all, walking distance to the mall and restaurants. I love this A... More

Peninsula hotel in Manila is a beautiful hotel. Its design especially in the hall area is great. You can enjoy a live band playing classical music / evergreens in the evening time. It is truly wonderful. Peninsula drivers when they pick you up from the airport inform the hotel of incoming passengers providing the name and time when the guests... More

Elegant expansive lobby which evokes old World grandeur and staffed accordingly by diverse uniformed young women and men who seem to be quite focus on their individual assignments including the uniformed staff whose only function is to open and greet the guests. Music plays nightly starting early evening on, at the lobby which also provides informal meals and drinks. A... More

I often visit the Philippines and have exclusively stayed at Shangri-La Makati. This time was my first time at Peninsula and have some helpful salient points. 1. Rooms more modern at Peninsula. I liked them better. I'm a Manhattanite. Bathrooms are equal. 2. Breakfast buffet is SPADES better at Shangri-La. The buffet at the Shangri La is like an attraction... More

I came to the peninsula Manila for six nights on business. I booked through my platinum Amex to receive extra services. Yes I did get an upgrade and breakfast but really don't feel there was much more benefit. The staff generally were "matter a fact" not what you expect from Asia and especially the Philippines. One staff member shone out... More

Stayed for business at this hotel for 4 days and really enjoyed using their gym and pool. The gym is open early, from at least 6:00am and the pool is 22 metres long so you can do some decent laps if you like swimming. Accommodation was clean and rooms very large. Buffet Breakfast had a good selection of food and... More

This is a beautiful hotel. It is easy to get to from the airport. Do book a hotel car, as the airport taxi line was CRAZY! They were nice enough to accommodate our last minute request for a car at the airport once we realized our mistake. Only weird thing was that a hotel staff person knocked on the door... More

I was staying in the Peninsula for business for one night. Checked out in the morning at 8:00 am. By 8:45 am I had discovered that I had left my Mont Blanc pencil in my room. I called the front office who instead of trying to really deal with my problem passed me onto the security office. The security office... More

The hotel is a little old but renovated. Room is spacious. Fresh mango and banana replenished daily. Breakfast buffet offered varieties of international dish, sashimi is fresh, and juice is freshly squeezed. The location is away from city center but cab is easily accessible. Pool is small, gym facilities is adequate.
