The Bayleaf Intramuros
Ranked #4 of 110 Hotels in Manila
Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

Modern hotel in a great location, only a short walk to the sights of Intramuros and Rizal Park, with Chinatown also within walking distance. Rooms are a good size. A very good selection of breakfast options. Rooftop bar and restaurant with great views of Manila.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled solo

Room: view of the golf course and Manila City Hall. Room with WiFi internet, safety deposit box, ref with complimentary water, tea and coffee, Sharp LCD TV. Clean, well lit room. Not too happy with the cable tv reception.

Washroom: strong water. Has "rain shower" shower mixer and hand shower, no hand towel, no shaving kit. Spacious shower area.

Service: Very good service. Feel very welcomed the moment we stepped in the hotel.

Lobby: Well lit, clean and warm reception

Parking: Limited basement parking.

Location: McDonald's adjacent to the hotel. Located within the historic Intramuros, one of the favorite tourist attraction in Manila. Although SM Manila is not too far, it's not really convenient walking to that mall. Also close proximity to Manila City Hall and Roxas Boulevard.

Rooftop: 360 degree view of Manila.

Price: Not that cheap

Overall: Highly recommended

Great location in the old town but close walk to Rizal park and harbour. Fantastic service with really friendly and helpful staff. Lovely rooftop restaurant with very tasty food. Seemed pretty good value.

The hotel and service by all the staff was superb, it also has a great rooftop bar. The only problem is the location - there is very little around the hotel so you will need to get a taxi to find shops or bars/ restaurants.

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.
