It is only good for night life, adult guests. It was clean and staffs are friendly. Location wise is great for travelling via air. It was close to the airport and they have a shuttle free of charge. I wasn't happy with their centralized A/C. It was so cold and it was hard for my young kids. Their room phone is useless, no one answers from the front desk. There was really nothing for the kids to do in there. Price is expensive. the Rbar breakfast don't have much to offer.
The hotel is located at convenient location (close to a shopping mall and McDonald's). There are shuttles between the airport and the hotel every hour. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Free shuttle bus to airport and back. Too many to list. no wifi in room.
Convenient to Airport - free shuttle.
Cleanliness No thermostat adjustment
It was good. The hotel was clean and staff were very attending. They need to work in the water that comes to the shower. One moment it was hot and the next very cold.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous, but the rooms were lacking a little in cleanliness and comfort. Nice for a one night stay. Great location for shopping at the mall, just a short walk across the street. There was a crazy amount of street construction going on. It took 1.5 hours to get from airport to hotel. You must use an experienced Philippino taxi driver!!
Location Have to walk thru traffic and rain for breakfast .and with the traffic officer the driver does not yield to the pedestrian very disrespectful to the pedestrian.it seems like the pedestrian must obey the drivers way
no bath tube just shower shower in bad shape
The rooms were OK. The shuttle service provided along with the resorts world manila was great. Resorts World Manila and Remington seems to have a coordinated efforts to charge as much money to tourist while you're are at their facilities. Resorts World Manila and Remington Hotel have promotions they advertised online that was a waste of time trying to get because of a coordinated effort to send you back and forth for requirements they needed for the promotions. The hotel will give you a blank look when you ask about the promotions, and the Resorts World Manila will change their requirement based on who you speak with at the membership counter. They will things like "We don't accept online booking reservation anymore", "We don't accept the hotel print out anymore", "This is not the hotel print out that we need. You have to go back to Remington and just ask for a print out. They should know", "All you have to do is show them the booking reservation", "We don't accept booking reservations anymore." It was a frustrating first night for a tourist. The free internet service they advertised is only good for checking e-mail. It's not good enough to surf anywhere. The internet speed is super slow, and I only get internet reception while I'm in the room when I stand by the doorway. Forget using it while in bed.
proximity to resorts world a plus! shuttle from airport is most important. Staff in front desk were very helpful and efficient. Only thing, staff who assisted in breakfast at late part f morning was not flexible with requests at all but staff for early morning shift was great1
Employees goes extra mile to give a good customer service , definitely my 25 th anniversarry we will stay in Dusit Manila, and everytime a family or friend will visit Philippines I will recommend Dusit hotel I really enjoy staying in that hotel.not to mention I came 14 hours ahead of my flight and Dusit was fully book but they still find a way to accommodate me that was 12 midnight and they just want to make sure I can rest that night after 20 hours flight . N/A
The old rooms are very bad. The moldy carpeting and musty smell will make you sick. The new rooms are nice. But they are also carpeted, and even though the carpet is new, it still smells. Stay away if you have allergies. I was initially sent to the dungeon upon arrival (old room), but was then upgraded to a new room after insisting AND paying extra. The Thai restaurant excellent. The Japanese restaurant should add traditional western wines to its menu - i.e. French, Italian, Spanish wines. The sushi is mediocre. Carpet is not a sustainable building material. Carpet accumulates dirt, allergens and mites deep within its fibers. Moreover, carpet is made of petrochemicals, it does not decompose in landfills and is generally not recycled. The room's flooring material should be tile.
Breakfast was very good and staff pleasant It's an older hotel! Way over priced! This hotel should be a $60-80 hotel! Unless they have newer rooms I haven't seen, mine was old but hot water was great for Philippines!
great service. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. Not modern but very comfortable. perfume fragrance in the lobby
Every thing about this hotel such as cleanliness , facilities,comfort , location and the friendly staff Actually nothing
It was a room. Hotel is old and needs renovation. I'm sure there are leaks in the bathroom behind the shower walls. Convenient to the airport at 5am.
the staff was warming and very polite,felt like family from the start.would stay again.location was walking distance from all needs.loved my stay nothing
Lobby with art gallery and orchestra was outstanding. Fitness facility was one of the best. Location is ideal. Strange ardor from the hallway (carpets?) was immediately noticeable and did not fade during our stay. Apparently was on other floors as well. Check in staff member was borderline discourteous.
Value for money
The staff is very friendly and they always remember my name. The location is excellent for shopping, dining and doing business. Great buffet breakfast.
I asked for them for a cab and was charged 40 dollars for a 4 dollars ride to the airport. When I said I was not paying I was promptly told it was already charged. At this point I didn't have a lot of time to argue since I had to go to the airport.
Staff is beyond friendly and helpful. Go out of their way to help. Great rooms and very clean. Stayed here 7 times and will come back. Love the location. Nothing to say.
The tennis court, the pool, newer building, everything seemd to work well. Live band at night. You cant walk into metro manila like at other hotels, this can be good or bad depending on what you want to do. This is a non factor i think if you were with a family. Hot water took a long time to get hot.
I liked the rooms, restaurants, pool area. Service in the pool area, difficulties in payments with foreign credit cards, miss information in front desk, communication between the workers from shift to shift was poor, airplane noise time to time was too loud.
for some reason, the bathroom shower was not designed to stop the water from spilling out. hard to keep the floor dry.
Everything was fine. A very nice location and pleasant rooms. the staff were very friendly and accomodating No complaints
classy hotel nice pool beautiful sunsets and view quiet beautiful grounds lots of service people around car service central location pharmacy clinic lots of security 110 and 220v power outlets in room food samples brought to the pool at certain times complimentary bottled water hammocks lounge chairs have cushions common space air conditioning is very cold, had to leave the sports bar because it was so cold (wearing jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt) buffet is ridiculously overpriced for the quality $65 USD per person dinner Thursdays sports bar is overpriced $35 USD for 2 hot chocolates, a small crappy pizza, and mozza sticks mozza sticks were not breaded but wrapped in spring roll wrappers and greasy pizza ordered was not good and the order was wrong sports bar took 10 mins to order and 30 mins to make pizza and mozza sticks does not allow outside food to be delivered to the hotel pool is freezing cold water slides were under maintenance reception does not respond to email entirely, whenever I emailed them before arriving they would respond to part of the email but I would have to email again to get a response for the rest cannot control balcony light no chairs on balcony shower cold water would cut out every few minutes so the water was scalding hot flowers on balcony not watered, dying mold in shower grout needs to be scrubbed/bleached bathrooms are too dark, need a lighted mirror
As an experienced traveller, the minute I stepped foot in Sofitel Plaza hotel, another chapter was added to my worldly experience. The lovely flowers display at the foyer added an elegant touch to the entrance. The spacious and comfortable room has a delightful view and room service was impeccable. The breakfast offered a wide selection of international cuisines which were both tempting and delicious. Last but not least, the comfortable chairs in the garden which pampered the guests to no end. A job well done and I thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
the view of the bay and the pool from the room was gorgeous. the bed was super comfortable. nice sheets. no line of regular taxis waiting outside because of the non-central location. i was very, very disturbed by the dirty sides of the toilet when we arrived. for such an expensive room, no ipod dock and no flat screen tv.
The service at the 10th floor. They did not keep the standard of the food service the same in their buffet . I would rate them at most a 3.5 Also when I was upgraded my room they told me and gave me a sheet of paper telling me I can stay until 4pm. Next day ,but they reneged and extended my stay until 1 pm.
swimming pool was fantastic, food, buffet breakfast, stunning view for the bay of sunset, staff were great, rooms were comfortable its just too expensive to stay for long length of time....
The staffs at the front desk are attentive and they will go the extra mile to make the guest feel very welcomed.
Sunset at Manila Bay is awesome, you don't need to get out of the place to experience. Staff very friendly and attentive. Will stay again.
The service was beyond attentive. As an example, we didn't just lie bedside the excellent pool... We were constantly served besides this pool, and often with freebies.
We stayed for 1 night so we could be closer to the airport for the following day's early flight. Location is great and the amenities are great. Love that we were entertained at the casino.
Great casino ambiance and professional staff, nice, safe and comfortable rooms and amenities. Convenient free enter net wi fi and free shuttle service from and to the mall and other destinations The SPA is nice but massage service is way over priced . The TV channels had a problem which was not fixed during my 2 stays in a period of 6 days then my other stay for 2 days 12 days later
The room was spacious ,very clean ,the service was impeccable ,everything in the hotel was well done . Nothing.
Staff were great. Room was in need of updating. Busy with children around the pool. Room needed updating
Beautiful lobby on the 8th floor, friendly and helpful staff. Good location Certain things in the room like the desk chair and the headboard were clearly beat/worn, should have been replaced, not something you'd expect to see in a 4/5 star hotel.
Convenience w Wi-fi is weak
Great place to stay. No problems
No early check-in. No late check out. Breakfast for 1 despite it being a double room. Room requests for double beds not accommodated. Overall, pleasant staff, albeit highly ineffective.
Location; positive attitude of staff. Way over priced. Dusit Thani is much better for less money.
Location to restaurants and shopping was excellent. The newly renovated room was equipped with modern furnishings. I really enjoyed strong water pressure of the shower! The staff was attentive and courteous to your needs. The room's electrical power outlets weren't working properly. The light dimming switches were confusing to use. I had just a "lemon room" of all rooms. The sound of construction due to the hotel's room renovation project can be heard throughout the day.
Location, location, location Rooms need to be updated
I had forgotten to pack my running T-shirt and shorts when i checked out. I only realised when i was already in a cab to another city. I called the hotel and told them that I had forgotten the T-shirt and shorts and if they could kindly keep it for me as I was coming back to Makati a few days later. When I went to collect my T-shirt and shorts, they were washed and nicely folded and packed for me. This was definitely a gesture that was not expected and a welcome surprise. Thank you New World Makati!
Closeness to all shops and places to eat Noisy day construction after a late night event I wanted to sleep but couldn't because of heavy noises next door. Although it's posted I did not realize how bad it was. Pool was closed too
Excellent service and very well maintained hotel. Great location next to shopping and restaurants at Greenbelt and Glorietta malls. Minor quibble, but noticed that the showers did not seem quite scrubbed down at the creases. so you can start to see the age. Not quite mildew, but the only thing that keeps it from being perfect.
Very clean room and the location is great for shopping, dinning and nightlife.
This hotel had everything the location was perfect about a 20 min drive to the mall of asia but also right across from greenbelt mall. Ab
Continental Club buffet was excellent. The view from rm 4216 was bad -- the side of the next building. The hallway was dim and the light switch didn't work. The bathroom floor had pee stains around the toilet. The speakers in the bathroom were loud and could not be modulated. The room temperature was cold and The AC controls were not intuitive. It's like they just dump you into the room and left you to figure out how to work things out. I thought of asking for another room but it was too much of a bother for a one night stay.
Brand new hotel
I was able to do early check in and late check out with no hassle. Also, left my baggage for a couple of days with no problem as well. Hotel amenities were great. Great location if your want to be near the airport and MOA.
really nice breakfast small pool than in the picture
Everything is highly appreciated. From the satff, toom ambiance and entertainment( casino) Lucky day for us!
place had good ambience . some of the staff were not as helpful as other similar hotels in area
Staff at check-in and at the Market cafe not highly professional, making mistake in billing on breakfast.
location-view front desk staff need more traning
Courteous staff who are always ready to attend to your needs with a big smile. Great location to reach different points in Metro Manila if you hate traffic. It's a great deal for the money. You can't beat the variety of excellent Chinese food offerings at Li Li. The Market Place Restaurant has the most extensive menu for brunch from Pilipino, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, European or continental fare. Non that I could think off.
nice hotel but very expensive ....... to expensive and bad location....
the location and casino are what makes this hotel interesting to me. booking took ages to come through. Prices are exaggerated during peaks.
I liked the pool view I liked the dinning facilities and breakfast Like the lounge and casino I like the security staff was king and helpful and understanding The children running the streets and dirty begging
Room is clean, Gym is decent., food good. In spite of booking and being given a "non-smoking room", the room still smelled smoked in. I think it is their ventilation system. If you are a smoker, the hotel is fine. If the smell of smoke bothers you then I would not recommend it.
No, I don't like it. It was a little bit old and looks a bit dirty for vacation.
about the nicest rooms and facilities you're going to find in Manila The swimming pool area was noisy due to nearby air conditioning motors. It was a significant distration
The lobby is very nice. Nice room and room service, it's up to a 5 star standard. Why the staff cannot get me a taxi when I need to go to airport ? Asked me to use Uber and which I did. However, I am from United States and Philippines not accepting my form of payment and not able to request one. The staff suggest we just stand there and wait until a taxi come by.. end up I followed up myself after 20 minutes of wait; going back to concierge and ask them to grab me a local Uber... waited for another 20 minutes to catch one...cannot believed peninsula is so behind at this area !!
Breakfast was lovely. The variety of food available was good for all meals. The gym is excellent. Room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very nice and there was a nightlight, a nice touch all too often neglected. It's a very nice hotel and I would go back! But.... WIFI access ends the moment you check out. Immediately. Which means that even if you check out at 9am and could have checked out at noon, no wifi for you as of 9am. Hopefully you don't have to call a cab or write a memo. Perhaps you were thinking of a leisurely breakfast in the lobby after checking out while reading the paper online. Nope. In 2015, when you pretty much assume that internet access is available for a reasonable amount of time, that's a pretty strong negative. The staff was far too eager to serve and frankly, a bit overbearing. The first day, I had two members of staff burst into my room while I was in the bathroom (pretty bad luck, I suppose), one without knocking, the other with just a cursory knock and a half second wait. I learned to lock and chain the door and put on the DND light right away. Once I forgot the DND light but locked the door... Ooops! So while I was taking a nap, I got someone knocking at the door for 2 minutes till I got up so they could give me bottles of water. Eating in one of the restaurants requires that you keep a tight grip on your plate or glass if you are having a leisurely meal... a waiter is likely to swoop down and take it away before you can say a word, if they feel you are done, whether at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. While eating, one waiter after another will come over to ensue that you are enjoying your meal, interrupting a quiet evening, over and over again. The service has good intentions, but really needs to back off a bit.
The Peninsula is the best hotel in Manilia as far as I'm concerned
wonderful classic luxury hotel but with a cut above in professionalism and warmth of staff. lovely! highly recommended--
The staff address you by name and give very personal attention. Hotel is gorgeous and well located.
Lobby, orchestra and staff.
1. Location in bustling Makati 2. Festive and Grand Lobby 3. Breakfast Buffet was top notch 4. Responsive and Pleasent Service 1. Room was old, small and not super comfortable 2. Weak Wi-fi in rooms 3. Expensive room service, restaurants and laundry options
Hotel lobby and restaurant interior is impeccable. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive to my needs. Location is not quite convenient for shopping. Hotel is located across the shopping centers, but crossing the busy streets of Manila. is not for the faint of heart. I ended up writing a cab. The taxi drivers were fine with the short distance.
Nice clean newer hotel! Like most hotels in Manila Area , they are starting to charge a premium like they are New York or Paris ect! It's still the Philippines but poeple are coming and paying these prices so I really can't blame them! I just don't see it, coming here the last 15yrs! the traffic is impossible, so plan on walking!
The service and comfort was would you can expect in a 5* hotel. The actual rate charged was higher than initially confirmed, due to local taxes and service charges.
Staff was very friendly. Rooms are nice and clean. My stay was very comfortable.
Staff were exceptionally friendly & helpful Location, though central, was adjacent to mix of the destitute/slums & consequently much begging. That said, old Manila is mostly a mix of this no matter where u go.
The friendly staff and the nice view over the town at the breakfast room. (top floor / 23rd level.) The unfortunate thing is the area the hotel is situated. Walking outside the hotel brings you right in the middel of the "red-light" district.
The location. The non managerial staff were very courteous and helpful. The. Reservations made was not I wanted, I wanted two beds. They gave me a? Queen bed and a trundle bed
I like themost How they r Friendly and the Hospitality is just great Overall, I would say it was really excellent time I have spent there.
Hotel staff were very courteous, responsive and helpful, no hidden fees all upfront, amenities are excellent and location is very convenient. Breakfast was always sumptuous and lounge has breathtaking views. Simply a welcome retreat after office hours with really beautiful views of the city. Beds were always well prepared. Hotel offered free parking for one car (not valet). Room came with free papers daily. Hotel's location is also in the red light district with lots of beggars and street urchins, street is a main thoroughfare and can be at times difficult for those who drive. Hotel is a bit old with carpets needing a complete overhaul or detailed steaming, beware of short shorts in the lounge; they will turned you away if you're Filipino. Hate to say it but feels like a bit of a whorehouse at times with local girls swarming a bit older foreign male. I could be wrong of course but you be the judge.
Awesome customer service! Rooms were cold, no heaters
Friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. If you're lucky, you get a room with a nice view of the bay like we did. Also, nice pool area and gym. The breakfast was wonderful! Diverse international food to satisfy all cravings. The view from the dining room was great. There's even a garden area should you prefer to dine al fresco. Convenient location. Relatively close to the airport and to many tourist sites. Only a block away from Robinsons mall. Although the immediate area around the hotel seemed pretty safe, a little further afield and you get to see the nitty gritty of Manila. I still felt safe, but you have to be smart.
Good staff Dirty room - stained carpets and furniture, cracked marble. I reserved an upper floor room but they lied saying no upper floors were available. This hotel is run by scammers. All the things inside the hotel are extremely expensive. They charge US$10-15 for mini bar drinks plus VAT etc. Internet was $27 for 24 hours -- even 4 seasons doesn't charge that! They rip you off every chance they get.
Not much The carpets are dirty and needs replacements. The lights are uneven. The old charm of the hotel has vanished. It looks old rather than historic. It looks tired and at time tacky.
Breakfast buffet was great. Many selections.
A portal into old Manila with all the classic immunities one would need in any 5 star hotel.
The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. The bedding is excellent and the furnishings are all nice. The bathrooms are very nice too. Didn't have meals other than the breakfast buffet, which was the nicest I have ever had, in any hotel (previous stays U.S., Canada and Europe). Had never been to the Philippines and wasn't sure what to expect in accommodations. Manila Hotel surpassed my expectations by a significant margin. Has a feel of true luxury. Some of the surrounding areas seem like they could be a little unsafe. This is not a criticism of the hotel, which is over 100 years old and has probably seen much change in the city. The hotel takes safety and security of its guest very seriously. Just ask them if you have questions about the surrounding areas. We did venture out for dinner and were careful. Keep most of your money in the hotel safe and don't be alone if possible. Bottom line is I will still look to stay here when in Manila.
Location. Near shopping malls and landmarks Parking
Lobby was fabulous. Breakfast was fantastic. Ambiance seems like a blast from the old manila The check in counter was a bit slow in processing transactions. Bathtub draining does not work on our room. Single bed is a bit small and requires limited sleeping movement
Historic look, reflects Philippines culture Breakfast buffet had good variety but quite salty
The buffet breakfast was really good. Ms. Cruz was very helpful. When you booked online, you need to know how their rooms really look like. They place me in the worst rooms (which was on the side of the hotel building). I have been in Manila Hotel a lot of times and I was very upset when I entered the room (smelly, dusty, old) does not look like what I saw in their website. you can asked for the manager and have her (ms.mcruz) fixed the problem.
customer service is superb! breakfast unbeatable!
Stayed at Manila Hotel 35 years ago and it was luxurious and elegant then and it still is! Breakfast buffet was more like a brunch! It was excellent, delicious but sinful ! The second time we were there it was very crowded but then considering it was a weekend, it's understandable !
staff is very kind and professional. Lobby is graceful and beautiful. room is good for 5 star common. If you didn't want to stay in central Manila, It is good choice to stay this hotel. 1.There is not a guide map. only small one-post card is a map. Swimming pool is some small. but It is good for child and adult also.
Elegant hotel Friendly staff Breakfast buffett had numerous selections Very clean room had, no problem with hot water None so far, I stay at Manila Hotel a few days per year on my vacation and business trips
Value is excellent for 5 star hotel internet could be little better
The price was not too bad, but can also get similar price of similar hotels nearby with better service. The staff in the Restaurant is not up to the task. They prefer to chat and joke among themselves instead of taking care of the customers. The fare to the airport is a rip-off, as you cannot get a taxi easily (anywhere). Pool and elevator out of service.
I like their shower room. The water pressure is excellent. The breakfast buffet is good. Staff are friendly. The location is not convenient to the shopping center although it's not that far.
For the price and quality it is good value. The service and staff are Ritz Carleton level. Room was a tad on the small side. It is a little bit out of the way which entails high taxi and airport shuttle costs which should be factored in the room cost.
Charming staff and full five star services. Location location location. We ordered and punched in on the internet for an AIRPORT hotel..........This was over 45 minutes drive without traffic far far away. Taxi cost is expensive.......at times. 3 and a half hours is not long enough to get to y
Spacious and rooms are nice and clean Staff is terrible, they don't care for your time and are an unfriendly as it gets. Avoid!
Location Ascott could not locate my reservation even when given my confirmation number and booking agents number. Front desk did not know what to do, they wanted to charge me double my original paid reservation and credit my paid reservation when it came through.....WHAAAAAT! Very late and tired, no one offered to make it right, front desk seem to have attitude. I finally called Kayak and had them locate original reservation which was faxed to front desk. Front desk calls me to tell me they have fixed it and I clearly told them... I FIXED IT BY CALLING KAYAK...which is something they should've done in the first place!!!!!
The floors were extremely dirty. Always had to keep shoes on otherwise feet were black on bottoms. We were even in the penthouse suite where you would think they take more care.
service, facility, location, rates
The space of the apartment was excelent... Front desk friendlyness might need to be improved.
I liked the location, cleaness of the hotel..beautiful spacious room i think the taxes were too high
One word - ataraxis.
We stayed here only because we missed our flight and the Holiday Inn was full. We wanted to stay near the popular shopping areas (Glorietta and Greenbelt). The location was excellent and they upgraded our room so we had a washer/dryer, kitchen and separate bedroom. This was perfect because we desperately needed to do laundry and didn't want to spend extra money on laundry service. It was also nice that we could cook our own meals and didn't have to spend a ton eating out and the Landmark grocery store was only a short walk away. We will probably not stay here again because they allow smoking in the rooms so once we made it home, all of our clothes that we just washed smelled like cigarette smoke. The worse part was the little ants that crawled around the whole room even the dining room table. We noticed it the second day there and had all of our luggage on the floor so we were paranoid that ants got into our luggage. We even found some crawling in bed with us. We were very ready to leave.
The service and security level provided by the Ascott's was excellent and to 5 stars international standards. Honesty and responsiveness of front desk personnel is commendable. Bathroom furnishing needs to be enhanced in order to improve averall staying experince.
The folks at the Ascott were super friendly, from the front door, to check in on the 6th floor, the restaurant was very good, staff attending to the room all were outstanding. Have been coming to PI for 10 years 20 plus trips. 1st stays were at New World, last 6 years have been at the Dusit...price/value was better in comparison than both of those hotels...we were in the old wing, rooms were spacious, we did check out the newly remodeled wing and it is newer for sure...the location next to Glorietta was great and only a 12 minute walk thru the mall to get to the Greenbelt Mall and theaters. We will be staying at the Ascott from now on. PS loved the pool area and the Jacuzzi There was nothing to complain about at all
