“WOW!!! Exceeded My Expectations!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2010

After reading the many negative reviews of this hotel, I began to second guess my choice of this hotel when I booked my package. However, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. From the moment I checked in, I was impressed. The hotel lobby is quite nice and the desk staff was especially friendly and helpful. I requested a room with a view of Manila Bay and I got an absolutely gorgeous room. Thought the furnishings were a bit outdated, the room was clean, recently renovated, and a beautiful bathroom. The staff was even more helpful...my regular housekeeping attendant was quite respectful and went above and beyond his duties and fulfilled the many requests I had. The best part of this hotel was the price....I got 5 star service for a budget minded price for a person like myself. If you're looking a a nice place to stay, convenient location. This is your place. I give this hotel a SOLID 3 STARS for accommodations and a SOLID 5 Stars for service.

We stayed two nights one arriving in the Philippines and one going back home. We booked by mistake as we thought it was the former Hayat, but it was not so. The first night we had a ordinary room...old, smelling and quite ugly. The second time we had a suite (the hotel were full and we were upgraded)..better but nothing special. The hotel is located in front of a road with heavy traffic all the night and the air is simply well well polluted. One good point: a Starbucks inside the hotel! Ask the hotel to provide the taxi from the airtport! Cheap a reliable. Restaurant quite bad..they have (or better..they declare to have) a choice of italian food but as usual this is a fake orrible italian-copy.
Another mystery: you pay at the reception and then you walk to the door, just 6-7 meters away and there is another person asking you for the receipt before letting you to go out! simply incredible!
At the end...cheap but I would not recommend, though the personell at the reception and in general in the hotel was quite friendly.

Just got back from our stay there for a trip yesterday evening and these are all the things that we've noticed...
>Staff do not greet guests coming in the front door nor sometimes open the door for you, unprofessional imagine them serving you breakfast talking about something else not thinking that guest are present and then joking around, the front desk answered a call unsure of how he would greet like "..uhm... hello...?" the other one was we would want to ask for the number of a restaurant just right across the street for we were not permitted to go out of the hotel being students by the teachers for safety they would not heed our plea just to get the number for just a little 1minute walk to see the big sign and answered us "...check the yellow pages" like whatever! we were hungry and called a branch of that resto just to get its number disappointing!
except for one good janitor whom of which helped us in exploring the hotel and gladly assisted us through the elevator...
> Air conditioning is really old idk how old it shows cracks at the side then the air it blows is not quite cool even at the highest temp...
> the we stayed at had a bath tub which was okay but talk about the toilet sit when we came back from the day tour it was already hanging with one screw off before we left it was in place just imagine but they fixed the room well
>the windows have locks and heavily tinted can't see a thing
>breakfast food was not good eggs had no taste at all meat was salty...
>the pool area looks creepy

there are good points about this hotel not the service
1. It faces the Manila Bay; seeing the sunset it amazing
2. It is in front of the US embassy if your processing papers
3. It is conveniently located at the city are where shops are nearby to eat, shop etc...

overall i do not recommend this place to anyone*

On another business trip to Manila in early Feb, I decided to stay at the Bayview Park Hotel (Roxas/UN Ave). I need access to the internet while I travel to keep in contact for my biz.
Despite the Bayview's own website claiming to have internet access in all guest rooms - this is simply not true.
The hotel itself is in a great location, but from my previous visits to Manila (over 10), I know that US$60+/night usually includes internet. All of my previous visits have been at hotels in this price range, including internet in the guest rooms.
NO NO NO NO NO - do not believe the claims. THis is nothing more than an upmarket youth hostel, with NO INTERNET in the rooms. There are 4 outdated PCs located next to the reception (for a fee) for the internet - 2 of them were broken. The staff told me there was wifi in the ground floor area - didn't work for me or 3 other guests that I met with at breakfast that day.
I booked another hotel same day - same price, 2 blocks away - and guess what - with internet.

Bayview is an "ok" quality hotel - rooms were "ok" - and it is fine if you're staying in Manila and do not need internet access. But if you do - then DO NOT BELIEVE their own website. THere is no net access.

I am a current guest in Bayview Park Hotel. Though I am already in my country I still felt discriminated. The people at the gate of this hotel greet my husband only as we walk in and out of the hotel, ignoring me as a guest. I noticed that they only greet the white people and set aside the ones that they think are locals. More courtesy will be appreciated, especially to women. Do not assume that all women with men of other nationalities are escort girls. But I don’t think that can be an excuse, our 5-year-old child is always with us. On the other hand, I am happy on the services at the reception. Receptionists, especially the man that seems to be the manager (night duty), are very accommodating (except for a lady- looks like the day manager, who seems not happy serving their guests, not smiling).

If you are looking for a safe, convenient, and safe place to stay, this is the hotel for you. It is right across from the US Embassy, along the Manila Bay on roxas Boulevard. The staff is efficient and friendly. Buffet breakfast offers a wide selection, and the rooms are equipped with wireless connection for your laptops. It is also moderately priced; near the Robinson Plaza shopping mall, and many restaurants around. The airport is accessible from this hotel due to its location. I requested for a standard double bed room. It was spacious, clean, and it had a view of Manila Bay. The second time I checked-in on my way back to Europe, I was given an upgrade, and the room was even bigger, with bigger double beds. You can have a hotel car service for $12 to the airport or anywhere; or the hotel guard/bellboy can flag a cab for you. Feel safe because the guard always takes down the cab plate number. If you don't have your laptop with you, there are computers with internet access to the lobby at $2 an hour. They also have a business center where you can print documents.

This hotel is inexpensive, but is not as nice and clean as it looks in the pictures. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but I would compare the rooms and their cleanliness to a Super 8. The rooms are no frills and are not updated. The hotel is not too far from the airport and is also only a couple $$ taxi ride from the Mall of Asia.
