Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The whole experience was just wonderful and beyond high quality service. From the moment we came, guards and all their staff accommodated us well with smile on their faces making us feel really welcomed. Everyone was very polite and attentive with our concern and needs but actually, the whole place are complete so you won’t be needing anything. PLUS it is very budget-friendly especially for big groups since you can have access on all their amenities. They have free water, a big TV screen for presentation & meetings, LOTS of sockets, good lighting and air conditioning! They also have free parking and a very CLEAN comfort room. Grateful that we experienced this one of a kind service and accommodation. Will definitely recommend this to my co-baristas and management teams! Thank you, Lyf! <3 We will comeback for our upcoming meetings soon.

A new hotel, whose concept is like an out of the box idea. Liked the visuals , the hip design , the freshness of the place. Booked a 2 bedroom unit at a quite reasonable price. Liked the huge servings of complimentary water ( typical of Ascott property) , the amenities , the functionality. The AC temp was relatively cool , but seems to fluctuate every now and then . It has auto function as they note it. The 2nd level has many things to do as communal . They have good music , the visceral can be felt. Even a coffee kiosk is there to open at 10am . I only discovered it , no one in the staff oriented me of its many facets.
Drawbacks although a little still come out. Location wise , it is a 10-15 minute walk to a nearby huge mall depending on your pace. But literally outside you don’t see any 24 hour convenience store or any fast food joint. F&B , it is also wanting. No breakfast options. No restaurant, coffee shop or even room service. Anyway , there is food delivery and Grab in this timeline. Regarding staff service, some are friendly, but others seem indifferent. Would rather not specify considering I know they have time to improve on that aspect.
Bottom line : good for friend bonding , gimmicks, review course , teenagers. However for family breaks if there are kids , it is not for a staycation type .. but that’s just my subjective opinion.

Very affordable and no-frills hotel stay concept.

Brand new and well designed.

No food service though so use Grab etc. Located in Malate where you need to be very familiar with (in terms of safety etc)

The room itself was very clean and design elements are more leaning on being functional.

We really had a fun and great stay here! We booked 1 All Together and 1 Side by side studio. I really like the All Together suite with its 4 bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms. It has everything you need! And I also love how they support sustainability — they provide water dispenser instead of water bottles. My friends also liked the place and they kept on asking how I find this hidden gem🥰 Plus their staffs are very accommodating! Would definitely recommend this! Thanks, lyf!

This was a last minute booking and we were so glad we booked with Lyf. We booked the ‘one of a kind’ room, and it’s pretty spacious for 2 (i’ve stayed in lyf in singapore and those were tiny compared to the rooms here). Located in a less busy street but lots of convenience store and restaurants around, and very close to robinsons manila. The beds are comfy, the aircon was quiet and powerul, water pressure was strong despite staying at the 20th floor, and the shower heats up really fast. Lots of outlet inside the room and pretty fast internet connection which is perfect for getting some work done. All the staff are corteous and greeted us merrily 😅 We would like to thank Jalen and Jimson from the front desk for being understanding of our situation (we havent had a wink of sleep from our flight) and they were able to check us in early. Thank you so much lyf. Overall this was a very pleasurable stay. Definitely recommended!

The rooms were large and tidy, with lovely furnishings and crisp bed sheets. The social kitchen and hangout were a real deal. The staff was attentive and went above and beyond to make us feel at ease. Nothing was too much of a hassle.

Newest Hotel in the Malate Manila area block. Property has hip design and nice, fun communal work spaces and rooms varying from studio, 2 bedroom and apartmsbt units that can accommodate max of 6 to 8 people.
Very reasonable price point and bang for the buck.
Consider this property when your looking for accommodations in the area.

The employees are so nice and friendly, from the security to the RM. Lyf Hotel gives you a new-atmosphere type of hotel. It's not traditional. They have a common living room, laundry area, shared kitchen, and roof deck, where they usually organize most of their events. It costs less than other hotels, but the quality of service is superb.

Thank you to Ms. Lyn for introducing the Lyf Hotel to us. It is our new favorite place to go.

Lyf was the hotel I stayed in before when I visited Bangkok so I was glad to find out that it has opened here in Manila. I was also looking for an affordable hotel where I can stay in as I was in a 3-day conference.

The location is nice. It’s near Robinsons Manila and it’s safe to walk around the hotel as the streets are all well-lit and there are a lot of establishments around.

The staff members are very welcoming, all were very helpful and accommodating. I’d like to commend Ms. Belle from the front desk for being very gracious and helpful to me all throughout my stay!

The room has a good size for people traveling alone or in pairs. It has good amenities and the TV inside the room is very nice because it’s already a Smart TV. The bed and pillows are really comfy and the air conditioning works well.

There are shared spaces in the hotel- like a dining area, kitchen, laundry area and a gym. All these shared spaces are very well designed. It looks very modern and cool but still has greatly infused a touch of Pinoy culture to it.

I’d definitely return to Lyf Malate Manila!
