This is a great 4 star hotel located within the surrounds of the city wall in Intramuros. It is about 40 minutes from the international airport (by taxi) and 10 minutes from the sights of the modern city centre (museums, shopping mall, train station, parks). The entire hotel staff were very friendly and attentive and all spoke immaculate English. All...

located in quiet nice Intramuros Area, perfect for a stroll through the area. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are nicely decorated and have a great view over town. Unbeatable the Skydeck Restaurant on the rooftop for a chilled out sunset with amazing food

As part of our honeymoon we spent one night at the Bayleaf. The staff was very nice and helpful (ordering taxis for us and even upgrading our room free of charge). If you are looking for a good starting point in Manila, then this is the place for you!

Very clean room and accommodating staff esp at the Front Desk, 3rd floor restaurant and at the Basement parking area. We were served nicely and very friendly with pleasant smile and very hospitable team members. Even though we had a worrying experience because of the shake and roll of the earthquake last Saturday afternoon, immediately after we've checked-in, we were...

Friendly staff, good sized rooms,great views, and daily buffet breakfasts Our only small negatives would be the lack of a really comfy chair in the room, failure of house keeping to ensure a full toilet roll and spare was always in the...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Bayleaf in March 2017. Bayleaf is tucked into Intramuros away from the chaos of Manila but conveniently close to the activity. This hotel is absolutely spotless, from the lobby to the rooms. The room we were given was on the 6th floor and afforded a great view of the walls of Fort Santiago below...

If you want to stay in Intramuros, this is easily the best place to stay. Nice quiet rooms, nicely designed lobby, feels safe and of course the rooftop views. Intramuros is a good location for a couple days to begin exploring Manila, so this is where I spend a night and 2 days. Its safe in the day, but I...

The Bayleaf stands in deep contrast to the rest of the Intramuros part of Manila. It is a beautiful luxury hotel situated inside the Intramuros, which is swamped in collapsing buildings. But not The Bayleaf! The staff are nice, the rooms were very good, with excellent beds, the breakfast was top notch (with an astounding view to accompany it), and...
