Would have been better if they have an indoor pool considering that this is 4.5 star. The room was smaller than I expected and the extra bed was not ready when we arrived. Skyview was great but it took a while before me and my friends were accommodated. We adked for an extra keycard at the frontdesk but we were... More

I only stayed one night there. The room was clean and nice. The location is superb for sightseeing. The service is among the best I've experienced. They are very considerate and make us very comfortable. I'll certainly consider this hotel next time visiting Manila. Besides, it's great value.

Very good service from straff, very nice view and good food at the restaurant at the rooftop. Comfortable beds, cool design of the room and delicious breakfast. I surprised my husband since it was his birthday and the Hotel arranged flowers and a bit of cake and they even sang for him!

I m staying at the bay leaf hotel in Manila ,and I can't say enough about how wonderful it is here. I follow trip advisor routinely on travel,trust me the hotel they recommend will not disappoint. Small negative no pool but location in the older part of Manila makes up for it.

This was our 2nd stay at Bayleaf since last year. Last year was more memorable since we spent the eve of the Chinese New Year at the SkyDeck lounge. I booked this year but was a day short and missed the NY. Check-in was fast as usual. Since the place was fully booked for the long weekend, I found out... More

Only had the one night here but the staff were excellent, very focused on providing excellent customer service. The room was very comfortable and had a bonus of a view over the intramuros. The rooftop bar gives amazing views and I'd recommend booking the smaller sky deck for the higher elevation. All in all a lovely stay and would certainly... More

The rooms are A-ok, not big but just right. It is homey, very good wifi connection, nice t&b, love the lighting and super like the security access on the elevators. But what makes this boutique hotel extra ordinary aside from its sky deck (with overlooking view of manila, roxas blvd and a glance of makati....which is super nice too.) is... More

We had to attend an affair at the Bayleaf and we decided to stay overnight afterwards. I tried to book online but all the booking sites said no room available. I called the hotel and was able to get a room. Francis of Reservations was very helpful. Upon his suggestion, I availed of their privilege card which entitled the bearer... More

We stayed at the Bayleaf for 3 nights in Manila prior to leaving for Boracay for our Honeymoon. First impressions were great, with a clean and open foyer area with 24 hour concierge. The reception and check in process was smooth and the staff were fantastic. We stayed on the 5th level and our room was clean and well presented.... More
