“lovely hotel, awesome team running it!!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Staying at The Bayleaf Intramuros was really a good decision. The hotel is situated within the walled city, so going to all the historical sights was really easy. There's also a rooftop restaurant and bar that offers stunning views of the manila skyline.

The location of the hotel is in the old part of town so there was the problem of dealing with the many street kids running around within the walled city. But the staff there really helped us out a lot. They even went out of their way in helping us organize tours and travel plans (we went out of manila as well). they made sure we had a pleasant stay..

Really appreciated all the help, so thumbs up for me!!

Room Tip: try and get the rooms facing the golf course. nicer view!!

Transport is much cheaper and easy to organise at the airport rather than through the hotel. Room was good and clean but we were on the 5th floor and there was a loud party on the 6th floor in the penthouse function room so maybe request a room lower down if there is a function on. Really nice rooftop bar but food and cocktails not great. Breakfast and coffee both not to our taste more along the lines of a Filipino breakfast of rice, eggs and meat/fish. All staff were really nice with excellent service.

My wife and I stayed here from 12/15-19/13. The Hotel itself was fine. We had no complaints about the hotel itself. The main drawback about this hotel is its location. It is far from just about everything and is not in the best area. The internet connection was awfully slow as well.

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the top and facing the bay.

I wonder what is it that the other reviewers saw at this property which I didn't. All along I kept wondering what makes this hotel rank #1 in Manila. I'm sure there was something that I was missing. Yes, the prices are fairly reasonable and service is good. However, the room in itself looked quite dated and it isn't exactly located in the center of the city as most reviewers would have you believe. Internet connectivity was quite patchy and not really stable. This is an important requirement for business travel and I'd say I was inconvenienced by this. I'd stay here for leisure when I only have to come in during the nights and leave early morning. However, this isn't exactly the best choice from a business travel perspective.

The rooms are very well maintained and are comfortable. The staff are also accommodating and helpful. The location is unbeatable if you want to tour the intramurros area.

However, for such a nice hotel, internet access requires a login and only 1 person can log in at a time per user ID. Even then, the connection is intermittent. Be sure to ask for 2 key cards as you will need to use the keycard in the lift to get to your room. we were given only 1 keycard which inconvenienced us when 1 of us wanted to go to the sky deck and the other preferred to stay in the room.

The sky deck resto bar is very cool and you must go up for a drink if you are staying at this hotel.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel as the price is still very good for the quality of the room.

I stayed in this hotel for a night and was greeted by a really nice and friendly staff, especially the one who showed me the room. The room was very good, spacious bathroom and super comfy bed. I also enjoyed the meal in the rooftop restaurant!

Will definitely come back at the Bayleaf! The colored rooms and the overlooking view is just right for the younger patrons. The sky deck bar was one of a kind. Very relaxing especially during the cold January weather. And their breakfast buffet, was
good too! Their food is a little pricey but they have generous servings.
