“The grand old dame of Manila always delivers”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

This is our hotel of choice when staying in Manila. This is the reason that you travel to enjoy luxury and to be treated to service at a five star standard.
Stayed many times and have never been disappointed. We love the lobby, Spices, the rooms, the breakfast buffet but most of all the staff !

I stayed here for a short business trip and was really impressed with every aspect of the hotel. The room was large, comfortable, nicely designed and clean. The lobby is great with always something going on and the orchestra they have playing every night creates a great ambience. The food in the main restaurant is fresh and tasty, as is the breakfast. The staff are genuinely friendly and professional with exceptionally good English. I really recommend this hotel because the location is also great.

Always stay here when I travel to the Philippines on business.

The hotel never fails to impress, with a grand entrance, attentive staff and comfortable and spacious rooms.

Right in the centre of the main business and shopping distract there is never anything NOT to do!

Manila Peninsula is a great introduction to what Manila has to offer. Just right smack in the heart of the busiest metropolis. There is a wide variety of restaurants and malls around. The hotel restaurants have a wide variety of food options. The rooms are amazingly comfortable. It is actually the only hotel I've stayed at so far which has an audio system in the bathroom where you can still hear what is being aired on TV in your room. You can also select to just tune into a radio station. It has separate but adjacent toilet and shower rooms. The bathtub is huge. This might easily translate to say that the bathroom is my favorite section.

I really enjoy staying at Peninsula Makati. The hotel (built in 1976) has its nice "historic" charm within it. The building is obviously not new but is still beautiful and well maintained. The lobby is impressive, nice and warm. The room is also kept very well.

The fitness center is of decent size -- not too big but it has complete set of equipment.

The breakfast in Escolta is excellent.

Also, the location is perfect as it is located in the heart of Makati (one of Manila's better spots) and is close to greenbelt shopping malls

The Peninsula does it right. I was so impressed with the mango, the pancakes, the freshness of the fruits, the quality of all the ingredient, the personable nature of all the front office and dining staff and the absolutely incredible range of food items on display. I apologize for the superlatives but it is just that good. The hotel is also in a fantastic location, its a bit dated for the comparable options you have like the Shangri la (which I did prefer with regards to the rooms and amenities) but the Peninsula just dominates in the buffet category without question.
