Reviewed February 16, 2014

Love the location, in Intramuros, where everything historical in Manila is around. Breakfast is good, and the hotel staffs are vwry helpful. You get different newspaper every morning. Hotel taxi is expensive though, and it will great if there is a swimming pool

Room Tip: ask for rooms on higher floors

If you have business to attend intra muros this is the best place. Nice room. Large bathroom. Great restaurant and amazing sky lounge with breath taking views of Mnl. Make reservation for dinner for the sky bar as it gets very busy. The surrounding are interesting. Old manila, very Spanish . Not the safest place to walk around so always be en garde. The bayleaf staff is amazing. The chef very friendly. Everyone remembers your name . Overall a great stay. Will return if business needed intra muros.

Room Tip: Ask for a room of the muros Amazing.

The hotel locate near the historic site. With the price we paid, we found it is very valuable considering breakfast friendly staff, very clean room and restaurant with 360 degree view on the roof top.

We stayed here for only a night. Service is good but the room was smaller than we expected. Buffet breakfast (which my kids enjoyed) was observed that, compared to the hotel we checked-in a week before, the choice of food is few. They also do not serve hot chocolate (for my kid) but the calamansi juice was divine. We ordered for scrambled eggs but I think the cook forgot our order so when we were about to return to our room, maybe he remembered our order but then, we just cancelled it. Too bad, even if there was few choice of food, we could have been satisfied, but were disappointed otherwise. They also do not have a mini bar so we had to go out to buy some night drinks. (It's a good thing there was a convenience store nearby). Wi-fi is ok. Rooms are clean. Staff are all friendly and accomodating. In totality, stay was ok.

Would have been better if they have an indoor pool considering that this is 4.5 star. The room was smaller than I expected and the extra bed was not ready when we arrived. Skyview was great but it took a while before me and my friends were accommodated. We adked for an extra keycard at the frontdesk but we were told that no one is available to deliver it to our room so we had to get it ourselves. Overall, it was an okay stay.

I only stayed one night there. The room was clean and nice. The location is superb for sightseeing. The service is among the best I've experienced. They are very considerate and make us very comfortable. I'll certainly consider this hotel next time visiting Manila. Besides, it's great value.

Very good service from straff, very nice view and good food at the restaurant at the rooftop. Comfortable beds, cool design of the room and delicious breakfast. I surprised my husband since it was his birthday and the Hotel arranged flowers and a bit of cake and they even sang for him!
