25th Anniversary

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Dec 2019
I spent my 25th anniversary at the Bayleaf earlier this month, with great friends, who are like family to me.
I feel I should explain.
It was my 25th anniversary because it was my 25th time of staying at The Bayleaf !
Thanks for the room upgrade guys, and thanks also for the cold beers on ice waiting for me in my room on arrival.
There's nowhere else i'd want to stay at in Manila !!

Me and my colleagues went to check-in at the Bayleaf in preparationg for a wedding. A night's stay here is a bit expensive, just like most accommodations in Intramuros. Food inside the hotel is expensive as well, especially their roofdeck bar. Although I'm sure that if you dine at the roofdeck bar, you'll see a Intramuros and parts of Manila in a better light in the evening. The staff were hospitable and courteous though. As for the amenities, they are complete so you don't need to worry about that. But for our room, the bathroom floor doesn't have a stopper or breaker so basically, the water on the floor would slowly creep in towards the main room. Good thing we only stayed for a night.

...if anyone is planning as long as I did....PLEASE reconisder it again.
Manila is NOT the place to stay longer as you must. - Not that there is nothing to see - but you cant get there. Traffic is horrendours.
So you may end up staying in the Hotel - as I did.
The Bayleaf has seen his best times years ago.
The Managment is poor.
The place is not clean.
Service Standard is poorly.
Best thing is the Rooftop - Bar!!!
This is a must. Spectacular view! - Poor Drinks....- Never try the Long Island! Worst I´ve had in my Life ... and I have had a few...
Food is totaly overrated....
Resume: Don´t go there to stay ... may be for the view...

Too far away from the airpiort.

Had a stopover in Manila and spent the afternoon / night in Intramuros at the Bayleaf.
It was an interesting part of town with Plaza Roma, St Augustine’s and the excellent Fort Santiago close by. We were lucky enough to see the Grand Parade of Marians also by chance.
The hotel is fine - friendly staff, good rooms and the Skydeck restaurant is pleasant enough. Breakfast was pretty solid too.
There’s no pool or gym, but that’s just the way it is - would recommend for the type of stopover where you have a bit of time to kill.
