Life is truly magnifique with Sofitel Philippine plaza manila. What could be more comforting than having a stay in one of the most luxurious hotels in manila. Waking up to a breakfast buffet that's the largest and baddest in town. Your luxurious stay at Sofitel is something to be passed on and kept at heart.

The room and it's amenities were all great, plus the view. The beds are comfortable but not that big we stayed in the twin rooms, just big enough for 1 adult and maybe a small kid. Bathroom is nice also.
