The location, staff, and value are all on full display here. Located inside Intramuros, and central to other amenities in Manila, this would be our first choice every time in Manila. While the bedroom is no more than appropriate in size, the bath is large and well appointed. Each room has a color scheme (1st stay was dark turquoise/brilliant white,... More

I loved the Bayleaf. The staff here was exceptional and very friendly, and the rooms were modern and freshly updated--very, very nice. The room was immaculate. Mine had a separate living area away from the bedroom, and a very large bathroom with a big shower and separate toilet area. Just fantastic. There's also a rooftop bar that has a nice... More

Everyone is accommodating and polite. I don't recall encountering a grumpy staff during our stay. Bed is comfortable. In room safe is easy to use. Bathroom is spacious. Loved the overhead shower. Made reservations at the Skydeck for dinner. TIP: Make sure to have reservations because they're always fully booked on weekends. I saw a lot of walk in customers... More

We stayed here one night in April of 2014. It was a wonderful hotel, and it's located in a great spot. You get a lot for your money too.You can easily access the wall around Intramuros for a walk around this historic part of Manila. I also enjoyed a nice meal and drinks on the rooftop restaurant. I would definitely... More

This is the second time that we come to Manila, and we already consider The Bayleaf as our home here. As many of the other customers, the first time (almost 2 years ago) we chose it due to its location and value for money, compared to other hotels in Manila. The experience was good and we decided to repeat this... More

Originally I chose The Bayleaf twice just because it is close to the Bureau of Immigration, where I had to do some business. I witnessed the sunset from the roof top, enjoyed a good service there. I dined the "9 Spoons" restaurant and was very happy with the service & quality of food there. Prior to my last stay I... More

Great location for access to Old Manila. Beautiful roof top deck/restaurant. Great breakfast selection, it changed everyday. Rooms where clean and had the most comfortable bed and pillows! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Great hotel with super competent staff and a superb rooftop view of the city. They were sufficiently attentive that they emailed me after my stay to tell me I had accidentally dropped a medicine bottle in the lobby on my way out; the thing is, the bottle didn't even have my name on it so they were really piecing things...

Stayed here for a weekend break with my family. I requested for a room for triple occupancy set up, and i liked the way my reservation was handled. When we arrived, there was no one willing to help me with our luggage, it was a good thing that the always smiling attitude of the front desk personnel somehow compensated for... More
