This hotel is centrel to all attractions. In a cab it will cost you 100 paso to get to most things. Rooms are of a great size. Pool is nice and cool. Staff are so friendly. The nightly turn down with a chocolate left for you was a nice touch.

I stayed in this hotel for a conference. Although the venue was on the other place, my accomodation was in this hotel. The usual ambiance of filipino culture type of thing like the elegant terno gowns of the female receptionist, the filipiniana top matched with an old fashioned hat for males added mystic to the place. Our lunch was served...

The Manila Hotel has a nice "colonial" taste and is located by the sea, just within walking distance on "Intramuros", becoming a perfect choice for a tourist visit to Manila. Although it is a bit "decayed", it still is a very good Hotel and you can usually find good offers make it a "good deal". Breakfast is huge and there...

I've used to dining at the hotel's Ilang Ilang restaurant but this my first time staying overnight. The room is fine, not too big compared to other hotels I've stayed. It was an conservative looking room but I love the furniture in the room. View from our room was not so nice, but not an issue. Single beds were really...

This is my second time to stay at this hotel and one thing I can say is that the custoner service has improved. The receptionists have become more kind and accommodating. The place however is an old hotel so the walls are thin and we can hear other guests from other rooms from our room. The beds are kind of...

Since my college days, it is my dream to stay in this historical hotel. We love the room but it needs renovation. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. The pool and bar was great.
