Love the ambience of the Pen Lobby! The menu has good variety of choices and it hosts buffet afternoon tea even!

All the staff at The Peninsula were extremely friendly and helpful, especially Joey Edang, who went out of his way. He was at the front desk, after being promoted from bus boy to front desk. He made an appointment for my husband to see a dentist and also help us find a hospital for treatment. Thanks Joey for your help... More

The lobby is made mostly of marble and well secured. There was a live jazz band the two nights I was there. Try the Halo-Halo!

The lobby is certainly not managed like before. Understaffed (as admitted by one of the waitresses), it takes forever to get the attention of a waiter. The silverware is full of smudge marks like they didn't care to wipe the knives properly. I don't know what happened here but this is very disappointing for such an establishment.

We had High Tea and were very pleased with everything, from the food to the service. Great for entertaining guests from out of town. The Halo-Halo is to die for.

Very beautiful ambiance. Nice drink menu. Dinner was average, but nice variety of Asian and American/European options. Come for the view and a quiet place to relax in very hectic city.

Lobby area is great for relaxing, a light meal, or meeting up with friends and family. The lobby area has an all-day restaurant as well as bar and drinks. The lobby area is also great if you just want a large area to relax and stretch out away from your room. The lobby area is also adjacent to the concierge... More

If you enjoy good cocktails or drinks of any kind or music at night to accompany you in a lush setting, its a great place! If you don't really care about the food then eat here. Its not worth the ridiculous prices they ask for their under par dishes, clearly suffering the big hotel syndrome, as they seem to have... More

Great location in Makati, Manila. The rooms are very nice and well designed and equipped. The breakfast is very good and a large variety of food to choose from. The Lobby is very well designed, with live performances of music. The service has been excellent

I've always loved the Pen lobby. I like how there's always live music playing. The sunburst at the lobby's ceiling is very interesting too. My son who joined the Peninsula explorers counted 21 rays of this artwork. I love their ice cream with real frozen fruits!!! I can never get enough!
