At some point in time you would like to enter the lobby with an expectation of fresh smell. But what happen to us was that the awful smell of lobby , when we went to the 2nd fl. We knew what was smelling, it was the carpet......whew...

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights and have no complaints. The service is unbeatable and all of the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us- including a super late check out due to our late flight time back home. While perhaps more expensive than other places, the Sky Deck boasts beautiful views of all of Manila- I...

I had a very pleasant stay at the Bayleaf Hotel. The location is central and convenient, particularly for Intramuros and Chinatown. The room was stylish and comfortable. There were good lamps for reading in bed. The staff was always polite and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent with many choices. The rooftop bar was great. Highly recommended

Excellent service, great food, well appointed rooms, a superb location and wonderful views summarize the experience at The Bayleaf. I enjoyed evenings spent on the rooftop deck/lounge/restaurant after spending the days exploring Intermuros. The location is perfect.

Bayleaf hotel a high-rising hotel structure at the heart of the walled streets of Intramuros. We got a chance to experience it by attending a reception held in their function room. The receptionists was good and alert to assist me in finding the reception area. Their function room was good to accommodate us, the sound and the ambiance. The Food...

We stayed here for 3 nights during Holy Week. The location of the hotel is fantastic for any and all the touristy things you want to do. The area has zero night life but you can get a 20 minute cab for £2-£3 so it's ideal if you're looking for a relaxing stay! The skydeck views are stunning and the...

Stayed there using a GC (from their SR9 membership) for an overnight stay at a superior room. Good service, I would say. We used other GCs for their outlet and they were all willing to deliver it to our room. I would recommend getting their SR9 membership as it is worth it

While the aesthetics and the food were impressive, some details of the service and amenities weren't. Internet is frustratingly slow and I constantly heard thuds from the rooms next door (I stayed in a 7th floor premier room) from the afternoon I checked in to the morning I checked out. Members of the restaurant staff also need a bit more...

Our trip is primarily a visit to the religious sites (the UNESCO heritage site San Agustin Church & Manila Cathedral which is the main bastion of Roman Catholicism in the Philippines) & partly historical as it is inside the famed Walled City & Fort Santiago. Bayleaf is very near those sites & perfect place to stay. Location is superb. Sky...

From the time you enter your feet into their sublime foyer you will be welcome by the genuine receptionists. The room that we stayed was clean and comfy but not spacious and having a lack of room amenities such as slippers, and shaving kit. The room accommodation includes breakfast buffet at 9 spoon and I love their Iced Choco. The...
