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

I specifically requested a double bed when I booked well in advance. I was given two singles when I arrived and when I query about it was told they are full and nothing that they can do. To top if off the fridge doesn't work. Is this really the best in Manila?

Stayed in Bayleaf overnight on 07/06 - 07/07. This is probably our 3rd stay there. We booked online and indicated that we will be arriving by 12nn (their usual check in time is 2pm) and asked to be informed if we can check in earlier. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call on the day of reservation that we... More

When I go to manila, I always stay at the Bayleaf for one reason ...... this place is fantastic ! They do everything right. The physical building is beautiful and located in the historical district of Intramuros. The decor is vibrant and tastefully appointed. The art is interesting and thought provoking. But, all these nice things are nothing compared to... More

I travel a lot, and (thanks to Trip Advisor) stay in many good hotels. This one was special in a number of ways: 1. The price is very reasonable 2. The rooms modern and ultra clean 3. The location perfect for exploring Intramuros and central Manila by foot 4. The restaurants were excellent, and I am normally very wary of... More

It was a great stay of 2 nights at The Bayleaf, room was nice, and we were given a room with great view of the walls. Very impressive service from staff, from reception to House keeping. Staff were helpful at the reception with showing you where to walk with a map provided. Requested for extra pillows and bottle opener from... More
