I had heard that tipping is essential to get anything in Manila, and perhaps I fell foul of that. Our group (business trip) had to wait almost 45 minutes for the check-in procedure sue to the histrionics at the desk. It seemed many levels of managers and subalterns all needing to get recognition for their chores. Meanwhile the hotel, which...

Sofitel Pasay is located about 20 mins off Manila international airport. The hotel buffet is PHENOMENAL - probably the best i have had in years, across many luxury hotels. The hotel rooms are well appointed, clean and up to date - the only down side to the hotel is the exterior and the grounds. The hotel needs a desperate exterior...

But we didn't have a bath tub in our room. A little disappointing. The hotel wasn't as opulent-looking as expected. We did have Lanvin toiletry, and wifi in our room. Helpful, friendly, and polite staff.
