If you want to visit Intramuros or Binondo in Manila this is definitely the best hotel. Very confortable, clean, good breakfast and everyone is very nice. Truly recommend to stay here to visit Manila (it's "far" from the airport and malls but that's nor relevant to us).

Perfect getaway place to stay within the huge metropolis of Manila. The hotel is ideally situated to walk to Fort Santiago and other locations. Roof top offers a great view. Excellent service and clean from top to bottom. Wonderful front desk staff! Would love to stay there again.

We stayed here one night as a family, as we wanted to see the old Manila. The hotel has been recently renovated and the restaurant was still in process of renovation. The staff and interior are nice and welcoming. The rooms are fine, with nice views of the old walls. We had a tour of the old Manila that evening...

We had a room with nice views of the muralla with all you need. The hotel is very safe. It has a roofterrace with nice views. Personal it is very helpfull. They make the favour of dry the clothes from the beach as we had to take the flight the day after.

It was our first stay in Manila and we had a lovely stay at Bayleaf, it is perfectly located in intramuros and the rooftop had a stunning view on all the city and is refreshing in the evening to get a beer. The staff is very professional and always looks after you. We even had a upgrade to an executive...

Food has generous serving yet the quality of taste isn't compromised. Since it is located in Manila there are plenty of places to go to for more activities like movies and/or more restaurants. It's close to malls and if you'd rather find a peaceful yet informative place with quite a bit of history, you can always stroll around intramuros maybe...

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we regretted as soon as we got into the room. Let me tell you why. The rooms, just like the great part of the hotel areas, are dirty. Plain and simply put, it is a poor job by management and the cleaning crew. We could literally see what...

PROS: 1) When you book a room that is described as "NO VIEW", it actually means "NO WINDOW" (just a huge mirror on the wall to make it look brighter, but it didn't have the desired effect). I complained to the staff about it because had i known that the room was without a window, i would have not booked...
