Pros: 5 adults, 1 child.
Even though the hotel was about 40 yrs old, it was wonderful to stay here. The staff was nice and professional. Rooms were very comfortable. The amenities were great. The ambience was great, made me feel welcomed. They even added extra bed to a 2-bed deluxe room for us... I don't remember asking for one. Thank you Peninsula.
Cons: Shower area in the bathroom made me feel cramp and enclosed.
Pros: Hotel lobby and restaurant interior is impeccable. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive to my needs.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 1. Location in bustling Makati
2. Festive and Grand Lobby
3. Breakfast Buffet was top notch
4. Responsive and Pleasent Service
Cons: 1. Room was old, small and not super comfortable
2. Weak Wi-fi in rooms
3. Expensive room service, restaurants and laundry options
Pros: The Peninsula is the best hotel in Manilia as far as I'm concerned
Pros: The lobby is very nice. Nice room and room service, it's up to a 5 star standard.
Cons: 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 !!
Pros: The staff address you by name and give very personal attention. Hotel is gorgeous and well located.
Pros: wonderful classic luxury hotel but with a cut above in professionalism and warmth of staff. lovely! highly recommended--
Pros: 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....
Cons: 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.
Pros: Lobby, orchestra and staff.

Cons: 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.

Pros: The hotel amenities were above average. The suite we stayed in was clean although I had to ask a 2nd time for a non smoking room. The hotel pool was a big hit with the kids but the buffet was priced a little high for the selections available. The staff was really friendly especially the front desk (kudos to Jen).
Cons: We originally had three room reservations the first week we arrived. Three adults got sick and therefore we're unable to make the trip with us so we had to cancel/rebook the third room. Paid cash to upgrade to the deluxe sky tower suite for us to check in the day before our flight which was a week after our first stay. When we got home, there was a charge for the 2nd stay. Called my sister in the Philippines and we had to be on 3way conversation with the manager who swears that there were no charges but just a "hold" for the incidentals. Right now we are waiting for a resolution from them which could take 7-14 days according to the manager on duty.
Pros: The room was spacious ,very clean ,the service was impeccable ,everything in the hotel was well done .
Pros: 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.
Pros: 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
Cons: 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
Situated on the waterfront, this luxury hotel is 0.8 mi (1.3 km) from Mall of Asia Arena and 1.8 mi (2.9 km) from SM Mall of Asia. SMX Convention Center and Baclaran Church are also within 2 mi (3 km).
Cons: All the rooms are non smoking rooms as of now. I think I was given a room which was once a smoking room because there was a tinge of an odor in the room

Pros: I booked two rooms for my friends and I. After the the unfortunate incident occurred with the unpleasant poker player setting fires inside resorts world my friends decided to stay in another hotel. Marriott was very accommodating with allowing me to use the credit to upgrade my room and not lose the credit I had already paid for. I took advantage of the hotel's services and everything was great. Room service, concierge service, restaurants, bellboys, etc. 99% of our stay was above and beyond what we expected.
Cons: The only small caveat was that they lost one of my g/f pieces of laundry but it was no big deal. It was a pair of sports shorts that were very old, so not much loss for us
Pros: The room is nice and cold.
Shuttle to airport is perfect!
Cons: Elevator card does not work always. I will need to call the security to fix and insert card in the elevator.
Reception desk not attentive, disorganized

Pros: We stayed 3 different times within 3 weeks in this hotel (we went out of town twice between stays). First of all, the service is impecabble. The staff is very warm and welcoming. The location next to 2 huge malls means the availability of many restaurants and retail shops and services. Being a fairly new hotel, the interiors are very nice and clean, yet it feels homey. I totally felt comfortable here and would go back and highly recommend this hotel to others.
Pros: Rooms are great, we love the great big windows giving us a great view of the city and the pool.
Pros: Great service
Excellent breakfast buffet
Nice atmosphere at Long Bar.
Cons: 2700 php for car to airport?
Must be a compromise between this and a local taxi at 200 php.

Pros: We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, in two separate stays. It was a reasonable distance from the airport and it was a nice hotel. The location was great - the neighborhood was very safe. It was walking distance from quite a few restaurants, coffeeshops, a nice bar, the Glorietta and Greenbelt malls, and the Saturday Salcedo Market. The staff was very nice, the rooms were updated and clean. Overall, a really nice stay. If I visit Manila again, I will definitely consider this hotel.
When we were there the restaurant/bar had not yet opened for dinner/evening hours. Thus, we didn't get a chance to taste the food. However, if it's good, it would be a good addition to our stay. It would be nice to just walk downstairs and grab a drink.
Cons: The laundry service was quite expensive. If we weren't completely out of clean clothes, we would not have used it. However, it was efficient and they didn't end up charging us for the "express service" additional fee.

Pros: The room at the tower good. Breakfast has lots of choices and good service too.
Cons: When i was online trying to select a room. From the website, the room grade i select was suppose to be the newly renovated rooms with rain shower, marble bathroom counter, tv in bathroom and etc...
But when i check in, i was assigned to a older room at the main building without all as described. I call the loddy and they told me that my room grade was not the newly renovated rooms, it is available at the next higher grade room. I was not too happy about this as i feel that i was misleaded to book at this hotel because of the renovation. But not so.
I talk to the manager and she allow me to change room, but keep reminding me that this is only a courtesy upgrade, next time please book the higher grade room.
My point is that the hotel are giving miskeading into on website to customers and the staff should be aware of the room class and provide the correct room to customer.
Pros: Breakfast buffet, pool, comfortable room, friendly staff, beautiful lobby and wonderful musicians, elegantly dressed staff
Cons: Attitude toward guests not up to European standards
The required deposit is unnecessary if a credit card is used to book room
Pros: Location. Near shopping malls and landmarks
Pros: Historic look, reflects Philippines culture
Cons: Breakfast buffet had good variety but quite salty
Pros: 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 !
Cons: The second time we were there it was very crowded but then considering it was a weekend, it's understandable !
Pros: A portal into old Manila with all the classic immunities one would need in any 5 star hotel.
Pros: Not much
Cons: 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.
Pros: Elegant hotel
Breakfast buffett had numerous selections
Very clean room had, no problem with hot water
Cons: None so far, I stay at Manila Hotel a few days per year on my vacation and business trips
Pros: Breakfast buffet was great. Many selections.
Pros: The buffet breakfast was really good. Ms. Cruz was very helpful.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Lobby was fabulous. Breakfast was fantastic. Ambiance seems like a blast from the old manila
Cons: 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

Pros: Very clean room and the location is great for shopping, dinning and nightlife.
Pros: Excellent service and very well maintained hotel. Great location next to shopping and restaurants at Greenbelt and Glorietta malls.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 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!
Pros: 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.
Pros: Great place to stay.
Cons: No problems
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 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
Pros: Closeness to all shops and places to eat
Cons: 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
Pros: Location, location, location
Cons: Rooms need to be updated

Pros: The location. The non managerial staff were very courteous and helpful.
Cons: The. Reservations made was not I wanted, I wanted two beds. They gave me a? Queen bed and a trundle bed
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Awesome customer service!
Cons: Rooms were cold, no heaters

Cons: I was checked in to a room with multiple problems namely: lighting was not working, AC was not working, the bathroom and the room itself have foul stench, carpet was dirty and the balcony has not been swept for a while.
I had to call at least 7x to speak with the manager and wait 3 hours to be moved to a new room. When I asked if I was given a deluxe room the response I received was more infuriating, it was a blunt NO. I was given a standard room and my deluxe room was given to someone else. When the manager realized that she could not convince me to stay in a dirty room she finally decided to change my room.
I am a frequent stayer since 2013 but due to this unforgettable experience I will not be coming back.
Cons: for some reason, the bathroom shower was not designed to stop the water from spilling out. hard to keep the floor dry.
Pros: The service at the 10th floor.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 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.
Pros: classy hotel
beautiful sunsets and view
lots of service people around
lots of security
110 and 220v power outlets in room
food samples brought to the pool at certain times
complimentary bottled water
lounge chairs have cushions
Cons: 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

Pros: The tennis court, the pool, newer building, everything seemd to work well. Live band at night.
Cons: 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.
Pros: 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.
Pros: 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.
Pros: I liked the rooms, restaurants, pool area.
Cons: 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.

I liked the dinning facilities and breakfast
Like the lounge and casino
I like the security staff was king and helpful and understanding
Cons: The children running the streets and dirty begging
Pros: 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.
Cons: Non that I could think off.
Cons: front desk staff need more traning
Pros: Room is clean, Gym is decent., food good.
Cons: 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.
Pros: about the nicest rooms and facilities you're going to find in Manila
Cons: The swimming pool area was noisy due to nearby air conditioning motors. It was a significant distration
Pros: nice hotel but very expensive .......
Cons: to expensive and bad location....
