Located behind the walls with a short taxi ride to the main area. Rooms compact but clean and functional. The staff are really friendly, the in house Italian restaurant is excellent, good breakfast, the rooftop bar is a must visit.

Rizal park is just a walking distance also if you would like to have a bit of an exercise. An LRT transport can be used when it...

An excellent location within walking distance of all the sights in Intramuros. The room was classy and well appointed. All staff were pleasant and efficient. The breakfast buffet was excellent and restaurant prices very reasonable. The Skydeck restaurant has fantastic views - check out the sunsets!

I wanted to take my fiancée down memory lane, to know our heritage and see historical sites. First thing I thought of was Intramuros. But where in intramuros will we stay? So I went to Agoda and found The Bayleaf and was surprised to see a good overall rating for a very fair and reasonable price. And true enough, when...

We booked this hotel after searching endlessly online for a district - in huge Manila - that would be safe and have some sights we could get in relatively easy in less than 48 hours. Our room was a little bit small, however when we booked this hotel it was almost sold out during the time period so availability was...

Great hotel but every time we have gone upstairs to get some drinks they deny us due to not having reservations. Mostly locals. We should have priority since we are staying here. I think they should leave a couple tables open for walk ins if you have a room here. No one ever told us we would need reservations to...

Manila (at least the parts we visited) was not ours. The Bayleaf however was a great retreat into a bit of serenity. Good comfort standard, very kind staff, and everything we needed organized was well taken care if. Breakfast buffet was very good, dinner was up to Philippine standards.
