We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. An excellent location in Intramuros, Manila, a walking distance to SM, and Manila City Hall. It is also nearby San Agustin Church or Manila Cathedral. Rizal park is just a walking distance also if you would like to have a bit of an exercise. An LRT transport can be used when it...

An excellent location within walking distance of all the sights in Intramuros. The room was classy and well appointed. All staff were pleasant and efficient. The breakfast buffet was excellent and restaurant prices very reasonable. The Skydeck restaurant has fantastic views - check out the sunsets!

I wanted to take my fiancée down memory lane, to know our heritage and see historical sites. First thing I thought of was Intramuros. But where in intramuros will we stay? So I went to Agoda and found The Bayleaf and was surprised to see a good overall rating for a very fair and reasonable price. And true enough, when...

We booked this hotel after searching endlessly online for a district - in huge Manila - that would be safe and have some sights we could get in relatively easy in less than 48 hours. Our room was a little bit small, however when we booked this hotel it was almost sold out during the time period so availability was...

Great hotel but every time we have gone upstairs to get some drinks they deny us due to not having reservations. Mostly locals. We should have priority since we are staying here. I think they should leave a couple tables open for walk ins if you have a room here. No one ever told us we would need reservations to...

Manila (at least the parts we visited) was not ours. The Bayleaf however was a great retreat into a bit of serenity. Good comfort standard, very kind staff, and everything we needed organized was well taken care if. Breakfast buffet was very good, dinner was up to Philippine standards.

The streets of Manila are filled with the excitement of many, many people, but when you enter the Bayleaf, a sense of quiet and peace prevails. I enjoyed both of those experiences very much. Breakfast was also a treat that I looked forward every morning. Great stay!!
