All the good reviews, raves, about this hotel is indeed true. I think what makes it special is the nice surprise as admittedly, from the outside, the hotel is not impressive. However, from the lobby (clean, well-lit, courteous staff) to the rooms (we got the Teal room on the 7th floor, facing the golf course), everything was just... pleasant. They... More

My wife and I decided to spend one weekend in Bayleaf Hotel and take the opportunity to visit Intramuros including Fort Santiago. The hotel facilities are excellent, the service is very good and the staff is so accomodating. The only "sore" spot is that there are many informal settlers around. Having said that, value for money, the hotel is excellent.... More

With just a day to spend in Manila following a week of meetings, Intramuros is the place to unwind. And The Bayleaf is THE place to stay! Right in the heart of the walled city, away from the maddening traffic, it is an oasis of modernity and comfort with excellent service, and even better views. You are within easy walking... More

Now with Bayleaf, I now believe my blogger friend when he said that this hotel is one of the cleanest. The reception smelled... More

I stayed 7 nights at the Bayleaf Intramuros. The hotel is modern and clean with friendly helpful staff. Very good beds. great food and you can order whatever you want for room service. Good woodfired pizzas too. Intramoros itself can be done in a couple of days but the staff at reception can organise a wide range of tours which... More

My basic room was very simple and modern with a comfy bed and a nice view. The bathroom was very spacious and the toiletries were great. The 360 view you can get on the rooftop restaurant is mind-blowing and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The included breakfast was top-notch. The staff was very friendly and made sure I... More

Rafaelle's restaurant on the third floor is great and well worth a visit. Roof bar too is lovely, not the busiest but I was there on a Tuesday. Staff were v helpful in directing taxi driver to the bus depo for my evening's journey to Banaue. Otherwise the depo is quite hard to find, especially if you happen to find... More
