“Good Hotel and Great Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

I stayed 7 nights at the Bayleaf Intramuros. The hotel is modern and clean with friendly helpful staff. Very good beds. great food and you can order whatever you want for room service. Good woodfired pizzas too. Intramoros itself can be done in a couple of days but the staff at reception can organise a wide range of tours which are good. I did a couple and the tour guides were friendly and trustworthy. Just myself and my girlfriend too so value for money.
I felt safe walking around intramoros day and night. Not many forigners do though so you stand out and get some looks.
I would stay here again.

My basic room was very simple and modern with a comfy bed and a nice view. The bathroom was very spacious and the toiletries were great.

The 360 view you can get on the rooftop restaurant is mind-blowing and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The included breakfast was top-notch.

The staff was very friendly and made sure I had everything needed at my disposition.

The location is perfect to get in/out of Intramuros easily.

I can't wait to go back and try the gold course around the wall !

-Were here at Manila is just for the Historical famous tourist spot called intramuros, And Bayleaf is the nearest hotel so were decided to spent one night in. Our Vacation is more enjoyable, we didnt expect that the food in raffaele is really great specially the woodfire pizza, the good service is there and very accomodating attendant like darsy, you feel his enthusiasm in his work so i ask his name. thank you for making us more happy and Satisfied :)

Rafaelle's restaurant on the third floor is great and well worth a visit. Roof bar too is lovely, not the busiest but I was there on a Tuesday.
Staff were v helpful in directing taxi driver to the bus depo for my evening's journey to Banaue. Otherwise the depo is quite hard to find, especially if you happen to find a taxi driver who likes to drive in circles just to get a bigger fare! But still only cost 120 pesos compared to 75 for the return journey so hardly a disaster.
Bayleaf is a great hotel. Keep it up guys:)

This may seem like high praise for a hotel I only spent one night in, but I am giving it my highest recommendation for several reasons. #1 location is terrific and not too far from the airport, where I was heading the following morning. (Please keep in mind that even a short distance in Manila traffic can take an irritatingly long time!) #2 the value is awesome when you consider the comfort and stylishness of the hotel. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave it! #3 super clean and, as I said, stylish. #4 the staff is super friendly and helpful and finally #5 they have a rooftop restaurant with amazing views. I highly recommend you eat up there as we did. AND, as if that isn't enough, breakfast is included with the room rate.

We were lucky enough to have our room upgraded so that got us off to a good start. The room was spacious, clean and modern. Food was good and reasonably priced for a good hotel. Staff were always courteous and helpful whenever we required their help. Very convenient location for exploring the historical district of Manila. If we are ever back in Manila we will be sure to stay here again.
