The staff were really friendly and helpful, food was also great. The rooms were average and wi-fi doesn't work. The only thing I didn't like was the attentiveness of the servers. They missed two of our orders and I also overheard a foreigner beside our table following up on his appetizer that did not arrive. But overall, the stay was...

Stayed here for 2 weeks in November, 2013. Came back to Manila last month and stayed for 12 days. We'll book with The Bayleaf again when we come back, hopefully soon. The Bayleaf Hotel made us feel at home! This is how we love this hotel; the management team and the passionate employees that they put together. The hotel reservation,...

I stayed here only for a night but I was very well taken care of by the hotel's staff. I loved that employees were smiling and were extremely attentive to the needs of their customers. Their rooms were crisp and clean. Food was okay, lacked "zing" but okay. They know personalized customer service and that's AMAZING! :) Loads of thanks...

We booked a room that has a view of the Intramuros Wall and the golf course outside the wall. The windows are big... runs all the way from the ceiling to the floor, which is really nice. The Sky Deck bar is superb. Guests have a 360 degree view of the surroundings, including old Manila and the Bay.

Quiet little weekend getaway, from the signs and sounds of the bust and bustling metro life in Makati, into the walled-city steeped in history! The overlooking view of the golf course below adds to t he charm. University life on the streets (Mapusa University...?) takes one back memory lane. More than the stay within the confines of a very small...

I have stayed in a lot of hotels in Manila, all the top ones, and almost always for business. This trip was for showing some family this city and I picked Bayleaf as it seemed to be the best option in Intramuros. I am glad I did as It exceeds my expectations. The quick and dirty: Though highly renovated, this...

I love this hotel! Located in a historic district of Manila, where local law forbids architecture that deviates from the Spanish colonial look, The Bayleaf blends its Spanish colonial exterior with a quirky and spunky modern interior. The service is impeccable-not surprising in Manila. The rooftop restaurant affords a 360-degree view of Manila, and when the weather is good, the...
