Bayview Park Hotel Review - Facts and Fiction
Large Rooms, Near Embassy and Mall of Asia, Food Accessible, Good Aircon, Starbucks in the Lobby, Good Price, etc
I am an American who lives a pretty good life in the Philippines, used to nice hotels and great food. I read many reviews about the Bayview Park Hotel, many of which were negative left by foreigners. I am going to attempt to set the record straight from a foreigners perspective. 1. If you are thinking that the Bayview is a 5 star hotel, expecting a 5 star experience, then you are going to be severely disappointed. 2. If you are expecting a very nice hotel for $50 a night with everything you need, then you will be very happy. Lies and Rumors: 1. #706 on the Superior Room Rate without Breakfast. 2. The Staff are wonderful. The people who said that they were rude must not have grumpy because they were extremely nice to us and everyone else. 3. The Hotel does NOT smell, it smell just fine. 4. The rooms are NOT small, they are very large. 5. The bed was a little hard but not too hard. Nice bed. 6. Additional comforters and pillow are available on request for free. 7. The rooms are older but newly updated. They have a fridge, a nice bed, newly painted walls, a really nice bathroom and everything you can want. 8. The AIRCON / Air works GREAT. We had to turn it down because it was so powerful. 9. The location is perfect. We were going to the embassy which is literally steps away from the hotel, but it is also central to everything. 10. Starbucks is in the same building. 11. Chowking, 7/11 and Yellow Cab are about 75 steps away 12. WIFI is available in more expensive rooms but ours was turned on for free. Typically 350 per day. 13. Breakfast was not included in our room because we got the $60 after taxes rate but typically 450 per person in the morning. It seems like a bit steep for the selection so I would NOT get the breakfast package.

very clean, but extras very expensive
clean, well maintained, very hot shower
the hotel is very well located, near the embassy and lots of places to eat. the staff was friendly, but not very helpful, but they were probably just following the management line, which appears to be to squeeze every dollar or peso out of the guest that's possible. i've never been in a hotel of this quality that charges for wifi, this hotel charges the equivelant of per day or an hour for internet access. they charge per person for a very limited and somewhat tasteless breakfast buffet. had i looked at the buffet before i sat, i would have definately gone to another eatery...oh well...live and learn.

"roaches everywhere"
very convenient location, walking distance to restaurants and food shops
disgusted with the # of roaches. At least the Bathroom is nicely updated, very spacious. We only stayed for a night but booked for 3 rooms. We frequent this place with every of our travels.This is first time i've seen roaches. My daughter keep screaming.

old hotel but worth the pay
very clean, close to good spots, near malls and national museums
i had a good time...though the reception area really needs a sala set or a sofa or just chairs where the customers lining up on queue can sit a while with their heavy bags.

Lovely Hotel
Rooms were clean and updated
It is in a not bad area, but not the greatest. Outside the hotel it is a little rough but never felt unsafe. The hotel has been remodeled and the rooms are good. The noise is quiet and seemed to be at a minimum given the location. The free breakfast is a plus. Also free WiFi.
