The best thing I liked is its location as we attended a wedding in San Agustin Church (5-10 mins walk), the well mannered staff who are always happy to assist you, the rainfall shower and the lovely view from our room. Overall, we had a great time staying here for 3 nights.

We stayed here on a 24 hr stopover on our way from Sydney to London. It was pleasant with very courteous and helpful staff on the reception desk. Rooms were a little small but clean. We had a kingsize bed which was comfortable and gave us a restful night's sleep. The room was also quiet. The shower was great -...

I can not recommend this hotel highly enough. It was an absolute haven from the mayhem outside. Staff from reception, security, restaurants, housekeeping all demonstrated outstanding customer service. There is nothing they won't do to help you enjoy your stay. From the moment you check in, you are greeted with friendliness and treated as a genuine guest throughout your stay....

I always stay at The Bayleaf when I'm in Manila. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Michelle and the rest of the front desk always know me by name and treat me with respect and a friendly smile. I've been upgraded to nicer rooms and suites on many occasions and that always makes me feel good. The hotel is...

Warm and welcoming this Hotel deserves all the plaudits it receives for the quality of its service.Well designed with the charm of its location overlooking the walls of old time Manilla and a sense of vibrancy and youth engendered by the fact that it's owned by the local University,s catering and tourism faculty and seemingly staffed by many of its...

Really nice location (inside intramuros) with a very good restaurant on the rooftop. Stayed there for just one night before going to Bohol. It is a little too far from the airport if you are looking for a stopover like me, but if you want to experience a little bit of Manila is a good option, since it is in...
