“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights at end of my trip to Philippines. Gorgeous hotel with nice rooms. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast buffet had good variety. Had dinner in both restaurants while here- reasonable price and tasty (pizza and pasta). Easy 10 min walk to Rizal Park. Hotel airport shuttle cost 800Ps and was fast and easy. Roof top bar gorgeous views. Aircon in room quiet. Amazing showers. Only thing missing was a pool but not a big deal. Would definitely book here again next time I'm in Manila.

I have stayed in this hotel several times already and it's just fantastic. Great hotel staff, nice and clean rooms. The Sky Deck is an amazing place to relax, it offers an excellent view of Manila and the walls of Intramuros. I will definitely go back here again and will highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Perfect located. You are in the center of Intramuros. And Quality Standards from the Hotel are High (after our trip in Philipines, you realize that Hotels in this country tend to be poor and without a good service) but Bayleaf was perfect. If I would go again to Manila, I would stay again there.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, Rooms was perfect, clean, new.
Restaurants may be a bit expensive compare to prices you can get in Manila's restaurants, but worth to visit too.

Room Tip: We took the standard room and everything was perfect.

It was hard to find and the aircon is very low. I like the room, its clean and comportable but i just hate the aircon because its very hot in there. I dont recommend the restaurant at the top floor, although the view is nice the food sucks. We ordered pizza and kare kare. It taste awful amd the meat is very hard. We didnt finish eating because of it. But we really like the view, i hope they will improve their food. Well if you want to experience the view then just order drinks then just eat outside

Everything you need and more. Rooms are clean and trendy. Service is helpful and friendly. Location is right in intramuros with a shopping mall right outside the walls. Parks are nearby for exercise. Breakfast is included and really good. Wifi works everywhere.

Don't look any farther, stay here.

I've stayed in several 5 star hotels in manila, but none offered the charm, peacefulness, location, and value of this hotel. No wonder it is ranked #1.

I will stay here whenever the situation permits without a doubt.

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 to just relax but if you like walking around at night, not so because it is quite dangerous and there are no good places at night that are walking distance.
