My husband and I stayed at the Bayleaf and after a long day of traveling from US and Japan, it was a relief to arrive that evening. The front desk staff were professional and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless with Arni. They presented us with a little treat to welcome us and congratulate us on our honeymoon, too! My...

We stayed here for 6 nights and we noticed the great customer service of the whole staff, including the staff of the restaurants. The restaurants serve good food. We loved the Raffaele. Their woodfire pizza and pasta are really good. The 9 spoons food are good as well although their buffet breakfast is average. The Sky deck bar is the...

Great location and all the sights easily accessible on foot. The service was impeccable. The room was good. Rooftop restaurant very good. One recommendation - open the bar on the roof during the day with comfy chairs.

We decided to stay since it's walkable to Intramuros. When we checked-in, the front desk agents seemed to be huddling up on one computer together with the person checking us in. It was quite awkward, but at the same time, I had the impression that they were run by students, so I ignored it. One of the agents walked us...

The surrounding historic places add value to these hotel though short of some amenities (pool, gym) but the rooms are clean & big. The breakfast buffet was good & filling but can still be improved for more delightful breakfast experiences. The staff were great & accommodating as well. Had a restful weekend prior to my son's games in said area....

Very nice hotel located in the Intramurals. In addition to the restaurants on-site, there many in the local area to choose from. Many within a convenient walking distance. My room was nice. I had a very nice view of the city. Very friendly and helpful staff at reception.
