Stayed here for 3 nights at end of my trip to Philippines. Gorgeous hotel with nice rooms. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast buffet had good variety. Had dinner in both restaurants while here- reasonable price and tasty (pizza and pasta). Easy 10 min walk to Rizal Park. Hotel airport shuttle cost 800Ps and was fast and easy. Roof top... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times already and it's just fantastic. Great hotel staff, nice and clean rooms. The Sky Deck is an amazing place to relax, it offers an excellent view of Manila and the walls of Intramuros. I will definitely go back here again and will highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Perfect located. You are in the center of Intramuros. And Quality Standards from the Hotel are High (after our trip in Philipines, you realize that Hotels in this country tend to be poor and without a good service) but Bayleaf was perfect. If I would go again to Manila, I would stay again there. Staff was very friendly and helpful,... More

Everything you need and more. Rooms are clean and trendy. Service is helpful and friendly. Location is right in intramuros with a shopping mall right outside the walls. Parks are nearby for exercise. Breakfast is included and really good. Wifi works everywhere. Don't look any farther, stay here.

I've stayed in several 5 star hotels in manila, but none offered the charm, peacefulness, location, and value of this hotel. No wonder it is ranked #1. I will stay here whenever the situation permits without a doubt.

The Hotel itself was nice and the staff was really helpful. It was relaxing and i actually enjoyed it with my Girlfriend, a nice view of intramuros. The weather at that time was not right so we weren't able to experience the skydeck. Maybe next time :) all in all it was very good :) i'd recommend going there overnight... More

We only stayed here one nigh, but that was more than enough to make a great impression. Given the rates they charge, this place is tough to beat in value. Yes, it's not exactly backpacker affordable, but that's not whom it caters to. The included breakfast is buffet style and is quite generous. I also found the coffee to be... More

Stated in Bayleaf overnight last 07/12 to 07/13. This is my 2nd stay here. Francis from reservations was very helpful and I was able to pull off my surprise by the help of him, front desk and one of the bell boys (forgot his name). The staff were all courteous and welcoming and checking in was hassle free! Thank you... More
