There are many, many things that are really nice, like - the location close to harbour (if you succeed to get a room towards sea) - the location is close to the huge Rizal Park and close to the old town as well - the lobby that is really nice - the breakfast that offers really a wide selection of...

Arriving on a late Saturday afternoon after a long journey from the southern part of the Philippines, I expected to be able to have a good meal and to relax in classy and quiet surroundings in this renowned, historic 5-star hotel. However, the reality turned out to be quite different. From the moment I stepped into the huge and grandiose...

When one talks about the Manila hotel, the grandeur and history of the century old property comes to mind. We were fortunate enough to be invited to celebrate our achievements by our company and upon arrival, the lobby welcomes you with the old world charm. I didn't have much to do before the affair and I was pleasantly surprised to...

Arrived at the hotel mid evening, to be welcomed by a quintet of musicians playing light classical music in the magnificent entrance hall with beautiful chandeliers. There was a lovely friendly buzz, and the female staff in their tradrional dress and friendly attitude reminded me how service was in the past. All staff ( and there were many) were always...

I stayed in the Manila hotel el several times in the 70s and 80 during the Marcos era. Having gone to have lunch in the Laing Laing restaurant I was very disappointed. The staff couldn't supply a plain vodka soda with lime. They could not figure out what that was although the vodka tonic on the menu. The meal was...

One of the first and oldest hotel in Manila.. General Douglas MacArthur stayed here of along time before the war.. Located near luneta park and Manila bay.. The entrance is like going back in time.. Give me goose bumps. The place is elegantly preserved. Old and new design are well incorporated. The rooms have either the view of Manila bay...

The key feature of this hotel is that it's historic. One of the first hotels in Manila. The lobby was wonderful and rooms were cozy. However, I deducted two stars because of the staff, especially the ones at breakfast. I was traveling with a friend who suffers depression and since it was his birthday, I asked the hotel to surprise...
