Set in the heart of the Makati Central Business Center, Peninsula Manila is full of five-star comfort, with easy access to the Stock Exchange, Ayala Center and other area attractions. Rooms offer panoramic city views and are outfitted in sleek, contemporary furnishings in a nod to the modern design sensibilities of the Philippines. Four restaurants, including Old Manila and The Lobby, the hotel’s flagship venue, offer sumptuous settings for lunch or dinner, while 24-hour room service ensures you won’t go hungry between meals. Outside, the hotel fountain is a landmark in its own right, making an iconic Manila photo-op.
In the Area
The property’s enviable location puts the city’s best restaurant and retail venues within easy walking distance. But the Peninsula Spa is worth setting aside a full day for, thanks to its full treatment menu, luxury spa amenities by Simply Peninsula and traditional hilot healing services. Nearby, Ayala Center offers brand-name swag at a deep discount, including Bvlgari, Armani Exchange, Guess and an assortment of cosmetic outfits, like Sisley and Shiseido. And the hotel concierge is available around the clock to coordinate excursions, city tours and other family-friendly fun.
How to Get There
When Entering the hotel. You are greeted with the grand foyer of the hotel. Nicely greeted at the entrance by door staff.
Check in was very swift. The quickest I have know, this can also be said about checking out.
It was quite late and raining on arrival. so as not to get wet we ate in the vast Foyer Café. The choices were good and the portion of food was excellent.
The room was spacious and well equipped.
The next morning going for Breakfast. Very good section of foods from the buffet. Catered for all food styles.
The hotel was also very near to all the main shopping malls for shopping.
Booked this hotel for a staycation. The deciding factor was the grand lobby and it did not disappoint.
When we arrive all the staff were pleasant and greeting us. That is a plus factor! Customer service is superb!
Buffet breakfast has wide variety of choices.
Basic room is small.
Overall love the place and will go back if there is a chance.
First time to visit manila and I had a great time when I check in at this hotel. I checked out last June 1 and I had a very smooth check out. Highlights during my stay were I had my meal at the beautiful lobby with mr.atienza. Everyone at the lobby were fantastic. They did a great service. Planned to have massage but did not had a time to get one with my busy schedule but I must say that the staff were very accomodating. I had a tour at the gym with Ryan. The gym was big and clean. I admire one of the staff named Kath. She is one of the beautiful ladies at the fitness center desk and really tried her best to sell a massage with me. She represented the 5 star hotel at Peninsula. I hope she can read this comment because I really wanna thanked her and next time that I will visit, I will surely try the massage. Please tell to her that. Keep it up Peninsula Manila!
I will agree with some previous reviews stating that it’s going down hill. Pretty disappointed by the staff, their attitude, training or whatever comes into play when serving you, in what should be a 5 Star Hotel. The facilities are nice (getting old though) but it’s the service that is all wrong. Wrong charges, staff not trained properly, public bathrooms dirty, bad attitude... and I won’t go into all details about a trip that went wrong the moment I checked in, all the way to my check out (I am not exaggerating or making things up here).
If you want a 5 Star Hotel and service, cross the street and go to the Shangri-la.
To the Peninsula: there is no need to get a reply from you here. Please spare me the blabla.
Very good ambiance, service, and wide selection of food. Highly recommend to calmly meet friends in a busy area. Accessible to transportation. Reasonable price. Reservations preferred for good seating.
