“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

I trusted the reviews of Russian tourists to this hotel and not wrong. Great location, very clean, excellent service. Good price. The hotel is located in the best part of Manila, Intramuros district. Quite nearby mall with nice shops and restaurants.On the top floor there is an outdoor bar with stunning panoramic views of the city. Very polite and helpful staff, we are very happy with their stay there.

It was an awesome experience! Everyone is polite and helpful! Thanks to the staff Alfie and his partner which i forgot her name. I checked in late because my flight got delayed. They waited for me and made sure everything is taken cared of! Breakfast is the best! I would recommend this hotel to my friends!

I recently stayed at the Bayleaf for two four night stretches, before and after a dive trip to Dumaguete. It was great! The accommodations are clean and generous. The restaurant has an extensive menu, with delicious food. And most importantly, the service, at all levels, was exemplary!
There are lots of things to do in the surrounding area. And Manila Collectibles, with its interesting and unusual souvenirs, at very reasonable prices, is a pleasant walk, or pedicab, away.
An oasis in Manila!

I look forward to returning to the Bayleaf. it is sited in a great area of Manila with good views of the wall and golf course in the foreground, with the city as a backdrop. Nice clean rooms and all the staff were kind and very helpful. Great breakfasts, delicious food in 9 Spoons Restaurant and the Sky Deck a fun place to hang out in the evenings. I forgot 4 shirts I'd put in a draw. When I sent a mail 24 hours later they had them in Lost Property awaiting instructions: Full Marks!!
A Lap pool or Spa would be a bonus.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the golf course

My first time in Manila and chose this hotel because of the location in the "historical" area of Intramouros. It's a stone throw from the beautiful par 3 Intramouros golf course too :) u are not really far from the entertainment of Malati but expect to be charged more late at night to get home because Intramouros is dead after dark and taxis probably won't get a fare out. During the day, Intramouros is fine to walk about but at night I felt very exposed and wouldn't recommend it. Now, the hotel. It was well run and modern. The rooftop restaurant was a highlight, not necessarily the food, which was just average, but the view and ambience was lovely. My partner and i chose the deluxe room with a view and it was small, I must say. I was a bit disappointed in the amount of space when escaping the midday heat, there is no pool and you tend to spend afternoons in the room until it cools down. I would suggest a larger room option for extended stays. The service at the resto was excellent, the room service was quick, Randy the manager always had time for a chat and offered some good advice. Mel, the waitress made my day every morning with her beaming smile and warm welcome. My room door lock was defective and the door did not close automatically without a gentle pull of assistance and I noted it to the reception staff but it was not fixed during my week there, which was disappointing as this was a security issue. Air con took a while to get the right setting as the dial seemed not to correlate with the correct temperature but..... All in all, pretty good hotel for the Phillippines :)

I really enjoyed my stay at the Bayleaf. Extremely friendly staff, good food, really nice room and nice view.
What I had not checked but would have expected was either a pool and/or a gym.
The Skydeck is obviously the man attraction but not much use when there is a typhoon overhead, another bar is needed really since Manila has so many rainy days.9Spoons was nice. Nice views, good and friendly service and nice food.
From my week in Maila, which was overall a disaster, the Bayleaf was a bright spot

We stayed here just for one night October 2013 and absolutely loved the place. Beautiful hotel, staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We got upgraded with our room and it was stunning. Food was also good. I highly recommend this hotel.
