Large Rooms - Modern and Quiet Air Con

Close to pier, Nice view from 15th floor
Quite good hotel. A little updating needed which i think they have started to do floor by floor. We asked for a bottle opener instead of providing one they said "bring the bottle down to us we will open it for you" - haha kind of funny if you are planning on drinking a few beers, instead we walked to seven 11 and bought our own. In other words proper customer/ guest service is lacking.

Classy hotel for interracial couples

beautiful lobby, good location, accommodating staff
we checked in for 2 rooms and found out that they were located on different floors but it didn't bother us. the hotel was 19 floors high, i think and there's no way to get to your room without using the elevator, unless you enjoy taking the stairs. the staff were accommodating and friendly but an incident occurred in which my brother and his friend were inappropriately (not exactly, disrepectfully) addressed by one of the staff. they did not have fancy clothes on and were definitely filipinos, not foreigners so one of the staff asked them in a sort of accusing manner where they are going. my brother said they were going to wait in the lobby while waiting for the elevator at which point the staff realized that they were actually checked-in to the hotel. there was also a mix up for the free breakfast buffet stub so we had to pay extra. other than those incidents, our stay was fairly pleasant.
Hotel Feature Tip: The hotel has a free wifi zone, a pool, and a gym which you can all access for free so I suggest you take advantage of that. The pool is not that wide but not too small either, I didn't get the chance to use it coz I didn't want to damage my hair but it looked good. The gym, I heard from my brother was a good place for body-builders, since they didn't have much low-intensity work-out equipments. I believe most of the rooms are non-smoking areas but there are smoking areas for each floor near the elevator.

Lovely staff, especially girls!!!

Everything mostly was fine
i did really enjoy my time in pearl manila hotel. food was fantastic, very delicious. hotel staff was very friendly, especially girls (maricel and nenith) working in the lift were so helpfull. they did give me a lot of information about manila, where to go what to see.. i'm really happy and i think to come back again. i wish these girls best of luck, hopefully they will be promoted one day..many thanks mostly to all staff!!!
Nightlife Tip: Is not far from Mabini if somebody interested in the nightlife.

Well located hotel

Swimming pool, close to tourist attractions
This hotel, just off Taft Avenue,is well located for public travel services and nearby tourist attractions in Ermita and Malate. Rooms are a good size and comfirtable and the open air swimming pool on the 9th Floor is a rarity for a Manila hotel in this category. Breakfast was acceptable but not as good as previous stays and staff, while willing to help, proved slow to act on simple requests. Staff were also unsure concerning simple requests for information (such as the airport exit tax for international flights).

Staff not professionnal, but cheap price

Price, food, gym, spa
Bad Points : - Staff is not professionnal, do not count too much on them. - Installation and materials are old. - Housekeepers tried to make me pay 2550php (50€) for a mark on our bed sheet, but they canceled when I showed my anger... - Swiming pool is very little and not deeper than 4 feet. - No internet in rooms (must to go to the restaurant and eat/drink). - Cold shower. Good Points : - Restaurant is not bad compared to the Philippines's performances. - Gym is just okay. - Massages are 24/7. - Price is good.
Shopping Tip: Rockwell mall : little but quiet for foreigners.

Comfortable hotel and wonderful service staff

Outdoor swimming pool and breakfast buffet plus fitness center
The pool provides a chance to get a suntan. Manila is a busy place and I saw not many opportunities for the price range of the Pearl Manila. The breakfast buffet has a good selection that often varies. The go out of their way to please.

Nice hotel,services are great, it can be improved

Free breakfast and lovely staff
wife and i always stay in makati the last 5 visits to philippines. this is the first time we stayed in manila. manila pearl is an ok hotel. not great, or at least, i wouldn't say it's a 4-star hotel but the service are great. breakfast in the morning is only up to 10am. not good for sleeping in. lots of choices though. restaurants can be improved especially the smokers using the other side of the restaurants and at times, smokes coming to the other side due to open floor plan. so, don't stay in this hotel if you have kids with ashtma as cigarette smokes are overwhelming most times. it has free internet but it's very slow most times and you can only use it in their smoke filled level 9 area and the too-hot level 8. this internet is as slow as their elevator due to so many staff using it and elevator ladies pushing almost every floors that they think people will get in, thus making it more slower than it's already is. cable tv is ok but screen is too small and it's ctr. not a flatscreen you'll see in 3-star hotel. gym visit is by a voucher and gym is only open limited time. it's a waste of time really going to get a voucher instead of just signing in.
Restaurant Tip: This is a walking distance to Robinson's Galleria at Padre Faura/Malate area. It has a lot of nice restaurant. If you don't want to spend 10mins walk. Catch a jeepney for PHP8.00 per person and you'll get there in 2minutes.
