I chose to stay at the Manila Hotel for my quarantine stay which is required by the Philippine government upon my arrival from the US. Obviously, this new requirement is quite nerve racking with the thought that I have to be confined in a single space for almost a week, but I’m relieved I chose the Manila Hotel. First off, their reservation service is very responsive with the numerous emails I sent. I chose to include an airport transfer with my reservation and I was picked up right away from the airport. I felt safe as a female traveling alone. Their personnel are in uniform bearing the hotel’s name so I’m assured that it’s not some random person picking me up. My request for dinner to be served on my arrival was done. I was given a suite upgrade which is a plus!…I didn’t feel claustrophobic even if I’m confined in my room for 6 days and I have a beautiful view of the Manila Bay sunset each night. I’m given a menu so food is not redundant each day and I’m given a choice of what to eat everyday. Their quarantine food serving is also abundant. Yes, their rooms need upgrades considering how old the hotel is. And internet is slow that it is hard to complete a Netflix movie. But overall, I’m satisfied with my stay and I hope to stay with them next time in a much better circumstances.

This hotel needs renovation, needs to improve the WIFI and decent TV channels. Saturday night and no English Premier League coverage. The food is served cold...I wish I had booked elsewhere. This hotel may be OK for locals but not for expats.

Dear Valued Guest, We are saddened to hear about your experience, and we have noted all your concerns to ensure that the pertinent departments continue working on improvements. For the other items, we do have providers that sometimes make it challenging for us to maintain a level of service that we see fit for our guests, but rest assured we are working with them and seeking improved service as well. The food situation is brought about by the guidelines we must follow during this pandemic, exacerbated by servicing a big number of guests with packed items during one mealtime. We understand your sentiment, and we appreciate and thank you for your feedback as it will help us serve people better. All the best and stay safe.

Since our work is nearby the Hotel, We Usually go here to Eat Lunch Buffet in Cafe Ilang Ilang, Today we held our Year End Party in Cafe Ilang Ilang, after the Party we decided to wait for our sundo in the Couch at the Lobby, there are a few people in the area since it was Wednesday . To our Surprise we are approached by this Super Bastos and rudest employee in the hotel lobby named BONG😡 , to vacate the couch if we are not going to order anything, he really said that to my face... I was never embarassed in my whole life, i was never approached by an hotel employee locally or even overseas to vacate a hotel lobby, Super Bastos. Everything in Manila Hotel was nice, except for that bastos employee, next time be careful in hiring a person... Tsk tsk...

Been here as our flight was cancelled. Crowded hotel lounge but staff are accommodating. Breakfast was exquisite! Room is tidy, spacious enough and you can also request for a crib for your tod’s safety as beds are high( if i remember it right). One downside for this hotel is the pool. It is small but def i will go back there! Thanks Manila Hotel!
