My second time in that hotel was very disappointing. Even got upgraded to a Suite(214) I would rather keep the original room booking. I had requested a room in higher floor with sea view to avoid noise from the street. What I got was a room in 2/F above the supplier/staff entrance with trucks and motorbikes running sometimes at night.... More

The Sofitel Manila continues to deliver excellence in friendliness and customer service while maintaining all the hallmarks of a quality hotel. A special mention goes to the lounge staff under the supervision of Friscian who make us feel at home each time we visit. This is my favourite hotel.

Check in: quick, very accommodating staff, our travel agent forgot to make minor arrangements, the foreigner male frontdesk officer immediately corrected the minor mishaps. Staff: super well trained staff, I haven't seen a similar service at any other hotel. Attentive, sensitive, and efficient. Except on the 3 occasions. We arrived after a whole month of toxic work so we decided... More

We loved our stay here. The hotel is absolutely lovely inside, and the staff is amazing! When we checked in, our room was upgraded to a king suite because we were on our honeymoon.

I know genuine customer service when I experience one, and Sofitel is no exception.

Quite near from Mall of Asia, but still need to take taxi to reach there. Breakfast is quite nice but it is also quite pricy. Free wifi is quite nice. Room is with view of the sunset. Welcome drink in front of reception is quite good.
