Don't miss this! A chance to experience the opulent luxury from a century ago. The Manila Hotel has been wonderfully maintained and updated over the years. Just walk through the main door and soak in the ambiance of the Grand Lobby. The rooms are as luxurious as the lobby. The grounds include an inviting spa, a beautiful swimming pool with...

We celebrated my birthday in this hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a certain charm because of it's historical background.

The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful - in fact, it seems to be one of the most stunning hotels in the country I've laid my eyes on. It certainly is an elegant and historical establishment. It's no wonder it's been a favorite among foreign dignitaries and celebrities. I wasn't able to visit the famous champagne room but the tap room...

Celebrated our wedding anniversary in this hotel. Really liked our room with the uniquely Filipino design and very comfy bed. We also had a nice view of the harbour from our hotel room.

The Manila Hotle is well situated for business meetings around the port area, but due to Manila's appauling traffic is not the best place if you are in need of getting quickly to the airport or night life. The hotel itself is very luxurious and the historic champagne room restaurant and lobby make you feel very special. The hotel staff...

I had an overnight stay in Manila as I was transiting to London from Sydney. They had a special offer for half price rooms as I believe their was some refurbishment going on. So £80 seemed a reasonable price for a 5 star hotel, with the only downside being that it's a little isolated from town and the airport. In...

When the hubby told me that he booked a surprise staycation at the Manila Hotel--I was dismayed. I was afraid that we would just be wasting a lot of money for a dated and poorly maintained hotel. Boy was I wrong and misinformed. The hotel (infrastructure wise) was an absolute pleasure to stay in. Buffet was the best (hotel) buffet...

This 5-star hotel is well located in town and offers all the comforts without the big brand names of international chains. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. All the expected amenities are included. Staff are very helpful and courteous. Good pool, gym and massage. They arranged a great takeaway breakfast for my 3am departure. Would stay here again.
