"All expectations of a 5 Star hotel are met! "
First Note: there is tight, yet quick security check (complete with sniffing dog) at the entrance gate and front hotel entrance) The bell hops look fantastic in their beautiful white Peninsula signature "throwback" uniforms - almost like being in the Grande Budapest Hotel movie! Gorgeous lobby entrance - yet not surprising for this 5 star hotel chain Excellent & efficient front desk service. Super friendly & efficient housekeeping staff. Well appointed rooms with modern furnishings. The only negative is the slow to "slow-ish" wifi service. Live entertainment by talented musicians on the upper floor serenade guests as they dine or lounge on the main floor. Made me feel as though I entered the dining room of a luxury cruise ship! I truly enjoy their breakfast buffet which I had many mornings. I really appreciate the filipino food fare & unique juice concoctions! Average expected cost for 5 star hotels (but expensive for locals). Its always a pleasure to stay here & I will do so every time I am in Manila (Makati). Thank you! XOXO p.s.

"Beautiful Old Hotel"
Only major negative first, AVOID the rooms that have connections to next door room. You can hear every word being said next door and you might not get any sleep. I had to change rooms after noisy neighbors laughing and talking all night. Stayed here a few times now for business and its a beautiful old hotel. They have the most stunning lobby with giant ceilings and palm trees with often live classical music played by a small orchestra from the Mezzanine. The breakfast restaurant has a huge huge buffet of lots of different types of food, I could spend a few hundred words describing the choice. The rooms are a little plain I feel but the bathrooms are gigantic with a bath, a separate shower room and a separate toilet room. The pool area is very nice indeed and you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Makati. Some words for foreign visitors not used to Manila, you taxi will get searched in the trunk by security on the way in and you need to go through an airport style metal detector every time you come back to the hotel, they also have security dogs. They are doing their best to keep you safe but it might seem a little jarring if you are not used to it in a hotel.
"Great hotel, arguably the best in Manila."
Great hotel, arguably the best in Manila. The place has a pleasant ambiance. The rooms are spacious and well equipped though are beginning to show their age. The staff are mostly courteous, efficient and professional without being obsequious. Pool is very nice but small niggle; the gym should be available 24-hrs.
Stayed two nights during a business trip and I must say that most things about this hotel was perfect. The majestic entrance, the pool area, the breakfast buffet etc. I given choice if you're traveling to Manilla.
"A grand style of hotel that is good value"
The lobby is a stunning introduction to the hotel. My room was expansive as got upgraded to a suite. Thank you😊 Furniture a little tired but very comfy and spacious. Room was incredibly quiet. Breakfast buffet is a wonderful option with choices to suit everyone. Staff very attentive and hotel car service worked well.
