Got a good price of about 127 per night from Orbitz. Great location close to airport, convenient for my early AM flight. Hotel chauffer is not overpriced like other hotels. Club and casino seemed cool. The pool can put any resort pool to shame, its a nice relic from the Marcos era (as is the architecture of the building and the grand lobby). The rooms are modern, big, with very comfortable beds. Perfect for business or romance. Also, next to mall of Asia - thrid largest mall in the world, so you have plenty to do . Bars and nightclubs nearby.
Oh, and next to the convention center and 10 minutes to airport, thats nice in manila!

STAYED there to enjoy the summer since we didn't have the time to go to provinces and other beaches in the philippines, when we checked in the front desk was very rude, seems that they don't even know hat they are doing. as well as their manager joel. if it was not for the nice manager darwin we would have left the hotel, the place is really nice specially if your there on holidays, to go swimming and the food was great too, a bit pricey, but really good, only thing is that they lack training in customer service. was thingking of oging back since we had fun but when you think of the hassle with annoying staff, makes you change your mind. by the way if somebody pays for your hotel, like used a credit card not under your name, you have to fax the front and back of the card that was used to book the room, talk about inconvinience!

Not central but beautiful location overlooking the bay. Close to the airport - only about 20mins and there are some good nightspots, restaurants and shopping close by.
Downstairs bar is great , although perspective may be swayed by the fact they were hosting a Playboy anniversary one evening and the outdoor bar is also a nice place to start, or finish, the night. Food good quality and the rooms are pretty comfortable. Minor gripes- pool was too small and crowded- nice for splashing but not for laps, and the gym was squeezed into a couple of rooms while regular gym was under renovation.
Will stay in Makati next time but this was a nice change.

I stayed at the Sofitel last year in September, and found it so wonderful I returned! Its vicinity to the Mall of Asia (a very confusing and time consuming to find anywhere type place) also gives it a plus.

The attention to detail is superb, it's the little things that count. I love the bathroom provisions, it was complete.

The rooms have a balcony, which is a plus, as you can take in the view of the bay.

The beds at the Sofitel are great, no lumps or hard places. It definitely gives one a good night's sleep!

The front desk can be improved a little. There isn't much staff available for such a big hotel.

When you drive to the Sofitel Manila, you see a very big and huge building. It did not inspire me.......But when you are getting out of your taxi, and feel and see how welcome you are then you will forget this first feeling.
My room: very big bed, nice bathroom. The management has decided to remove the bath from the bathroom and that was a good idea. Now I had a so called rainshower. Enough bahtroom amenities. Nice balcony, but no chair on the balcony. Tv, and desk to work on.
In the hotel you have a very good 24/7 beatyparlor. The treatment was professional done. The gym was in a temporarely part of the hotel, cause they are working on a new gym. Very pleasant was that the member of the gym explaned the use of the treadmills, and other equipment.
The lobby in the hotel is beautifull. With escolators you go downstairs to one of the restaurants. And there it happens at 18.30 hrs each evening: The buffet.
You have choises of: Indian, Japanese, European, Korean food. and a big Grand dessert corner. Everything is well prepared and the staff is making your plate on the spot. show cooking at all the counters. Friendly and advising. A real pleasure. The staff is helpfull, and care taking.
I enjoyed every minute.
The swimmingpool is a very nice area to be during the stay.
Reception also friendly and helpfull. In short a very pleasant stay in this Sofitel hotel. Much better than the Sofitel Karnak Luxor, on which I also wrote a review.
