The instant you step into this prominent hotel, you are unexpectedly taken back to its glorious past. While its architecture reveals the richness of its history, its Christmas display is that of the contemporary era. Since its location is a stone’s throw away from numerous must-see spots like Rizal Park, my family did not hesitate to pick this venue when... More

I availed of the Christmas Package for 12.5k and I'd say our stay was just "so-so". First, they moved us to a room where the window view was ugly. wasn't facing the Manila Bay and the room was too far from the elevator. And the Xmas package came with a gift for the kids and fruit basket and free sodas... More

I will start off with the only positive review I have for this hotel. There is this one waiter who was really accommodating and really tended to our needs. To show our appreciation, we gave this waiter a generous tip. As for the negative reviews; 1. Parking attendant. I parked outside the hotel since the parking inside the hotel vicinity... More

We spent 3 nights in a suite in early December. There were plenty of parties, weddings, conventions going on, and thousands of people were populating the lobby and the access to the hotel. Many of them also stayed in the hotel and dined in the restaurant. Plenty of 2 star people for a so called 5 star hotel! It seemed... More

As a first-class hotel, the Manila Hotel is OK, but it's not the world-class hotel that some of the guidebooks would have you believe, and its location has some serious drawbacks. I stayed there for a week on a business trip in December 2012, with a room in the old wing, facing Rizal Park (supposedly the choice location of the... More

I believe this used to be a very good hotel. I've read the history of it and it did have its share of prestigious events and notable guests. Unfortunately, it has seen its glory days and now. It needs some good sprucing up. For example, the facade looks old and tired. They really can do something about the entrance drive... More

My wife and I used the Manila as a base for a two week tour of the Philippines. We stayed three nights, one night and two nights in between tours north to Banaue and then south to Palawan, Cebu and Bohol. We booked our room through the same agency that arranged our tour. Our room was in the older front... More
