The Peninsula is situated right in Manila's business district Makati, it looks like a palace, white marble, high halls, helpful and friendly concierges in peninsula uniforms, nice flower bouquets... simply a top hotel beyond star level paired with priceless Phillipine hospitality, friendliness and competence. I was very impressed by the Spices restaurant which serves delicious Indian food and the extravagantly... More

I remember how elegant this Hotel was back in the early 80s and i am glad it still is! Timeless Elegance is how i would describe the feel of walking in the lobby with the big Christmas tree by the door, the string quartet that plays in the mezzanine, and the overall look and feel of this place.

Thirty years since I last visited and it must still be one of the very best hotels in Makati Manila. Beautiful themed lobby and tastefully decorated throughout. Breakfast is good but I can't help thinking it should be a bit less international and a bit more exciting. The staff are all so very polite etc, a little too subservient to... More

Stayed for one night at the hotel at Premier Suite room that contains one bed room, one hall and two bathrooms. The Suite is very spacious. It is a bit old hotel but it was renovated and well maintained. I stayed for only night only as a transit from Boracay then back home. Check in and check out were very... More

The Pen is one of the very few hotels in Manila one can call timelessly elegant. The experience starts with one's entrance to the grand lobby, the quality of staff that greet and assist you. The rooms aren't as updated in some small aspects (eg no USB charging ports bedside, no bidets), but the stay is always flawless in ambiance... More

The Peninsula offers efficient and friendly service, a convenient location, and a quiet haven from Manila's infamous traffic and chaos. The included breakfast is terrific, and the vast lobby is a great meeting place.

I used to use this hotel when visiting with work but this time I came on my own to visit friends locally as a holiday. I am a massive gym addict and I love coming here as the gym is first class; amazing equipment, friendly staff and spotlessly clean. This time I used the spa facilities and the treatments were...

This is my family's second time to visit this hotel because of their buffet restaurant called Escolta. We very much enjoyed our first time dining experience here. The restaurant staff were very professional and gave us great service. With this second visit we decided to celebrate my birthday here. The staff sang the birthday song and gave me a delicious...

We just arrived here for 1 night. The hotel is spacious and very comfortable. The rooms are clean and impressive but not as luxury as expected. A little dated we have to say. The service is great but we can only enjoy the hotel for a couple of hours and than have to go. Will definitely come here again.

For anyone passing through Manila, I'd highly recommend giving yourself one great night sleep at the Peninsula. After traveling for nearly 24 hours we landed in Manila and went straight to the Peninsula and were instantly blown away by the pure class of the resort and staff. My one regret was not spending more nights here.
