Your choices are unlimited when you eat here and the food is terrific. The staff is very helpful and as a tourist I love to try new foods and specifically the foods of the area and I was not disappointed.

Very impressive spread! Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, South American... there's even Halal certified. So much food to choose, I wasn't even able to try half of their offerings! The coconut...

great ambience plus great company and good food is just pure heaven! it,s even better if you stay overnight just to enjoy all the amenities such as swimming, using the gym, or just listening to the music at the the hotel lobby. Dont forget the breakfast! Cafe Ilang Ilang serves the best breakfast.

Food was on the low average side for a Hotel service, overall our dining experience was good, offset by the good ambiance compared to years back. For me Manila Hotel is a must visit in Manila.
