"One of the best hotels I have ever been to.."
Stayed in the Peninsula over Christmas 2016 / 2017 for 14 nights . I cannot fault it. I can only praise it. Everything was right. The room, the staff, the breakfast, and most of all the general feel of the place. If I were a millionaire I would live there..
"Excellent location in Makati"
This was my second stay at the Peninsula Manila. I observed a greater security presence throughout the hotel (including the restaurant). The room was smaller than expected, but adequate. I enjoyed beverages and the live entertainment in the opulent lobby every evening. Breakfast at the restaurant, Escolta, offers a wide variety of regional and international fare. To avoid waiting for a table, I suggest arriving before 8am. Their espresso is excellent. The pool and fitness center are well maintained. The hotel is within walking distance to Greenbelt Mall. One minor complaint: I know some rooms have a 110V outlet, but mine did not. I requested a transformer and received an adapter. My second request was successful.
"Elegance in the city "
My partner and I spent two nights in the Peninsula hotel and were very pleased with it. The staff are excellent, catering to your every needs even before you realize you are in need of something, the entrance lobby is a beautiful sight and they take their security measures very seriously. We stayed in a Deluxe room with a king size bed and it was a fabulous room, though the bathroom was something to write home about. We had a walk in shower, a large bath tub, his and her sinks and the chance to create our very own mood lighting. Overall it was the perfect stopover before we flew on to Boracay, easy walking distance to the Greenbelt shopping area where there are multiple restaurants and attractions and close enough to the airport that we only needed to leave an hour and thirty minutes before our domestic flight. Definitely somewhere I would be happy to stay again.
I stayed in The Peninsula for four nights after relocating from another hotel at City of Dreams which I didn't like, mostly due to the location. The Peninsula was exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for a quiet, elegant hotel with professional staff. This hotel delivered. Security appears to be top notch and they are located throughout the hotel and at every entrance. This hotel is over 20 years old and it is very well kept. My room was well maintained. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning. The cappuccinos were excellent. I've seen larger selections at breakfast buffets in hotels in Manila but the buffet at The Peninsula is definitely adequate. I had drinks at The Bar one day after work, great staff. I also had lunch and a couple of beers poolside. Staff were always on top of everything. I never had to search for assistance. Another plus is it's location in comparison to Greenbelt. There are a number of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The area is very safe with great sidewalks and elevated walkways.
"Everything was excellent, their reputation is well-deserved!"
From the concierge to the front desk, to the room amenities, the restaurant staff, and of course, the food, we have only the highest praises. The hotel may be 40 years old but the age doesn't show anywhere at all. The pool also looked very refreshing and clean. However, we did not get a chance to take a dip. We had our wedding reception at the hotel 30 years ago and one can only wax nostalgic upon seeing everything again, looking unchanged after 30 years. We are already planning for our next staycation, this time with our children.
