I arrived in Manila very late on Wednesday 10th May. The flight was quite " choppy" so, I was worse for wear and not feeling great however, the peninsula staff seemed to bring a smile to my face... The room I was given was 630 which is farthest away from the lifts on a corner plot overlooking the green tree tops of Makati. The room was larger than most hotel rooms I've seen in Manila. It had a separate closet off the hallway and a large restroom with bath tub and separate shower. I'm pleased to say that the flow from the shower was very powerful. One of my pet hates is a weak shower. The room had a large selection of fruit and candy sweets and four complimentary beers Which, was nice. The hotel has a number of restaurants however, breakfast is served in Escolta. The food is served buffet style. The choice of good is excellent and caters for all tastes. Other than breakfast my other meals. We're out of the hotel so, I can't give you a opinion on the other restaurants. I did however, spend a couple of evenings in the bar called Salon de Ning. The hotel group has four salon de Ning bars all of which are very different but, with the commonality of great music and atmosphere. The band on the first evening comprised of three vocalists. Two female/ one male. They all had very different voices. One of the females was very much like Sade and the male vocalist could certainly compete with Michael Buble. Everyday various boxes of treats were left in the room including chocolates and candies which is a nice touch. My room was left for two days as I travelled down to Davao to see a old friend. Everything was in place on my return and Escolta staff approached me and said that I had been missed... On check out there was a slight delay. This was because the GM Mark Choon had insisted on meeting me. This was unexpected but, again a nice touch. He spent a few minutes with me asking about my stay etc.. My answer to the question " would you stay again"' Is a without doubt and without hesitation... Quality never goes out of fashion and in my mind The peninsula hotel group are fashionistas. Remember quality is the result of a carefully constructed cultural environment. It has to be the fabric of the organisation,not part of the fabric...
"Special occasion "
Place to spend time with friends. Ideal for meetings or just hang around with friends and enjoy the food they offer specially their high tea. Hotel is located in the heart of makati business district in Metro Manila, Philippines. One of the oldest hotel in town with lots of history. A must place to visit in Makati.
Great classic 5 star hotel in a good location in Manila. Service is very friendly and professional. Lobby is very impressive with a nice atmosphere. Rooms are a bit tired and need renovation. Gym is not open 24/7.
It's a classic in Manila but super! The staff is wonderful, the location very good, in the middle of Makati which is full of shops nd walking distance to go round wich is very important coz manila is crazy when it comes to traffic.
"The Peninsula Manila is first class elegance!"
The Peninsula hotel is beautiful inside from lobby to room. It has an old world feel to it. The staff are professional and polite. The rooms are big enough to sort any tastes although do not expect a good view!. The hotel is good for relaxing and enjoying the delious food that is served inside the hotel. However, it is not walking distance to most of the attractions in Manila such as the Mall of Asia and bay walk. A factor to consider in booking a hotel in Manila is the heat and traffic always!
