A great place to stay if you dont like the city hassle.. They dont allow many vehicles inside Intramuros so theres less noise from cars.. Rooms are decent and clean.. Buffet is good and staff are nice.. The only downfall was i could not extend for 1 more night.. Highly reccomended

Had to wait a little while before getting a room as the manager ensured that i get the room with best view, as i requested when booking. My partner spent more time admiring the view than looking at me. Hahaha.... Every staff was friendly and approachable. Location is not bad, walking distance to SM mall too. My p

It was my 2nd stay in the Bayleaf and they never failed my expectation. It is still my choice of hotel whenever I am in Manila. On my 3rd stay I would book the same room that I had. The view of the golf course and Manila City Hall is superb.

I have been to the bayleaf because one of my classmate conduct their report presentation at one of the hotel's conference room. I must say the hotel is clean, and their staff is very accommodating and attentive. We even requested for an impromtu hotel occular and they gladly allowed us. They've shown us their executive suite, which is spacious and... More

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

This is the second time I will write a review. I don't really write one unless I was really satisfied with my experience. My first review was for the Cocoon Boutique Hotel which I find ao amazing. 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
