Positive Reviews


Step into iconic glamor

With dark wood, sparkling chandeliers and period-inspired staff uniforms, you may feel that you've stepped back into an era of bygone glamor as soon as you enter the lobby. Indeed, for many guests, this first impression was hard to beat and the historical prestige of the Manila makes it a by-word for luxury for those staying in the heart of this bustling metropolis. For the most part, the service appeared to match the glamor and the majority of guests reported that their stays were extremely comfortable affairs.


Well-suited for business travelers

Despite its old-world glamor, it appears that the Manila is more than capable of meeting the modern needs of today's business travelers. The feedback here was that they found this hotel well-equipped for business meetings and conferences. Many found that the hotel's wide range of food options were more than enough to keep a diversity of clients content.


Breakfast is bountiful

When it comes to eating, for many, the hotel's breakfast buffet is applauded not only for quantity, but for quality. Regardless of your diet or tastes, it seems that everyone is well catered for here.

Negative Reviews


Not central enough

While this hotel overlooks Rizal Park and the colonial fortification of Intramuros, for some, it was too far removed from the center of Manila. A few guests commented that they resigned themselves to using taxis quite a lot during their stay.


Strange smells

The building has recently been refurbished, but some guests - particularly those staying on upper floors - reported rather unpleasant dusty, musty odors in their rooms.


Morning Let the vhaos begin

As far as eating and drinking here goes, breakfast is extremely popular among guests. However, some found this morning crush to be unbearable and chaotic.
