Definitely a place to see and have a few cocktails. A beautiful space and a definite must see while in Manila.

As a business traveler, I am always looking for the total package and this is it. Not rushed service, beautiful spaces and reasonable prices. Must go see place in Manila!

After having our sumptuous dinner at Spices Restaurant, we had our desert at The Lobby with our favorite "The Pen Pals" with grand Symphony of Ice Cream! enough for the whole family. The live string band makes it more enjoying and relaxing. Hot Cafe Americano concluded our happy evening.

Before or after a long business day, their variety of service and meals is great, I'm particularly fond of their choice of herbal infusions

The place is totally classy and the staff is really friendly but having to wait for 30+ minutes just for a giant bowl of ice cream is too much. So please do a better job next time 'cause I still intend to come back after that sugar high!

We stopped in for lunch. The atmosphere is great, the food so-so, overpriced, and the service extremely slow. It wasn't even busy! Would not go back!

The Lobby of the Pen is a place to be seen and to see at almost any time of the day or evening. It features a respectable menu for afternoon tea and is great for drinks at almost anytime. But be warned, the prices are world class, i.e. not cheap. But the atmosphere, especially with live music, makes the visit... More

I got off an international flight at dawn, arrived at 5:30 am for a 10 am presidential event. The bellhop were kind enough to store my luggage allowing me to "retrieve formal attire" for the event. (yes, I changed in the "ladies powder room", shall we say?) And I was able to order breakfast here, then promptly fell asleep at... More

I love Manila Peninsula, precisely because of its lobby. It's cozy, but at the same time, very elegant. I appreciate that they have added healthy meals into their menu. I think they collaborated with The Farm to come up with organic, vegetarian meals. One thing I really didn't like during my last visit was the bad service. I had to... More

Gorgeous lobby, went there for high tea. Food was yummy and tea excellent, the staff treated us wonderfully even though we stayed there for hours. We even stayed after high tea because they had a live orchestra playing classical music on the balcony, the orchestra played two songs that I requested which was so lovely! They had a manager in...
