For the past two years that I have visited Manila, I stayed at your hotel for its elegance within the Walled City, cleanliness and proximity to places I wanted to go and visit. This year, my wife and I, visited Manila and again we stayed at your hotel for a total of nine nights, four in April and five this...

Booked the Bayleaf for a tad bit of Relaxation following the positive reviews on TA as we had only one night in Manila before heading off on a few weeks of trekking. To be honest was a little disappointed, the service was brilliant and staff very friendly, the roof top bar/restaurant great location food was ok. But the room itself...

great view of Manila at night. Dinner at the sky deck was indeed a romantic experience for a couple like us. And we got so lucky our accommodation was upgraded from superior to premium room! great savings for a wonderful hotel experience. We felt like it wasn't Manila because it was tranquil up the sky deck, and good thing that...

I stayed as part of an extended business trip. The room was comfortable and clean, and the bathroom looked newly appointed. A word of warning though: when they mean a room with "no view" they mean literally no view... or window. I had assumed I'd be looked out at the building next door, but instead of a window I had...

Right from our arrival when Pauline checked us in we were made to feel special. We had two birthdays during our stay and on each of those days the reception staff came to our room with a cake and a birthday balloon. The outside temperatures were extremely hot and when we returned on one day to the hotel from walking...

Nice Hotel. Staff were great. Breakfast buffet was a little disappointing. The rooftop restaurant was not. Not much to do in the area after the sun goes down. The biggest problem I had was inconsistent WIFI. Since I am a software Engineer with a need for connectivity, that was a bigger problem than most will experience. All in all, I...

My parents, my husband and I planned to stay at the Bayleaf for the first two nights of our 3 week trip, and we ended up staying for five extra nights because we had such a wonderful experience. Although this isn't a 5-star hotel, it's still a very nicely appointed hotel and fantastic value for the price which is why...

The hotel room was nice and clean. I was expecting the breakfast buffet to be better than other hotels of same caliber but failed terribly in terms of food quality, selection, presentation, etc. Hopefully they will improve it and make it appetizing.

Great service good food will come back. I stay at lot of places where trip advisor recommends and it always turns out to be great. So I will come back and stay here, when I am on this part of the world. Room service was prompt and always on time and courtesy.

Bed was nice. Food was great. Overall, a night to remember and I would recommend the place to my friends. The staff were accommodating and were helpful. The place we had has a beautiful sight of the Intramuros. Top area serves a good spot to hang out with someone and the view was spectacular as well
