Nice and comfortable room, excellent location, superb rooftop bar and great staff made my experience delightful. The view from the top is fantastic and the location, right in Intramuros, gives you the opportunity to visit the old town without getting into the city's traffic. Highly recommended.

I have stayed in City Garden in Makati a couple of times before but this time I thought I'll try a different hotel and found The Bayleaf and that was a great decision. I took my girlfriend to Philippines for her first visit and we both love the hotel. We stayed here on our first night and last night of...

Adequate-sized room and bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff. Within walking distance of interesting attractions in Intramuros. Good selection at the buffet breakfast. 9 Spoons restaurant at the hotel also has a good range of reasonably-priced and tasty food. The Sky Deck can get very packed but offers a 360-degree views of the Manila.

Superb! Bayleaf Boutique hotel is accessible to famous tourist spots and restaurants. Adjacent to Bayleaf are McDonalds, a not so well-known fastfood resto and Chocolatier, known for their churros. Checking in and out is just a breeze. The lady at the front desk informed me that my room was upgraded to superior de luxe at no extra charge. Gave me...

We stayed at the BIH for a few nights before heading out to Coron. Our room was small but very quiet and clean, with a safe, very comfortable bed and pillows and a floor-to-ceiling window over the Muralla (Old City Wall) and the golf course. The bathroom had a large shower room and lots of hot water. Every morning we...

This is a tremendous, stylish hotel with efficient, courteous and friendly staff. We were upgraded to their largest room which was impeccably clean with gorgeous bright orange features. The skybar was a terrific introduction to Manila city with its 360 degree views.
