The staff was great, Internet worked. We walked all over the area. Lots to see. Went to dinner show at Barbara's and enjoyed it. Breakfast was good. Be sure to communicate with taxi costs. We had to fight about it every time. The room was quiet, penthouse bar fabulous. Felt safe always

We stayed in the Bayleaf hotel only for one night due to a stop-over for Boracay. The hotel was very elegantly decorated and really surpassed our expectations in regards to the rates. Rooms were clean and front desk was friendly. All in all we were pleased but I would not give this hotel a 5 simply because the taxi service...

I tagged along with my husband for his convention in Manila & have decided to stay overnight in the area to avoid traffic. I surveyed several hotels before booking & I must say this is the best value hotel from the bunch. No wonder they are fully-booked all the time. Pros: Parking is easily available. Check-in & check-out were quick...

I was on a short trip, and was a speaker in a two day conference at the Bayleaf. Firstly, the accommodation, which is very comfortable, and everything works exactly as it should. The room cleaning is done without you even noticing, and the welcome tray is well stocked. The breakfast is perfect - in fact the restaurants are all very...

Located at the busy street of Intramuros area, this modern looking hotel (luxurious almost) is a hotel with excellent service. The staff are nice and very helpful. One big plus about this hotel is the parking area. They have a big parking area for their guests. The design of the room interiors are very modern-looking. The bathroom/toilet is immaculate. The...

To introduce the young US-based kids of a favorite nephew to the country of their father, an outdoor merienda cena seemed to be a good idea. I picked only among Ilustrado (not what it used to be), The Manila Hotel (ditto), and the Skydeck View of The Bayleaf. Well, at least this hotel has no pretensions towards antiquity... and it...

After reading many reviews I couldn't wait for our stay at the Bayleaf. After my visit I have a hard time believing that Trip Advisor guests rate this hotel so highly. The biggest disappointment when arriving is the quality of the room. These rooms are old and in need of some renovation. The room we stayed in was painted with...
