Staying at Sofitel is always the best experience. We keep coming back and the service never changed over the years, their staff are well trained to provide the you the best service and they make sure you have a pleasant stay. We got the 1 Bedroom Suite and room was big and clean. Spiral Buffet is the best! I highly recommend choosing Sofitel if you are staying in Manila.

This ADA (HC) Room was a slight disappointment BUT the food never ever lets me down!!”
Let me start by saying i often stay at Sofitel when i am in Manila. I attempted to contact the guest service manager upon my checkout but he/or she wasnt available. So i am a disabled business and vacation traveler to Southeast Asia. Im a very independent paraplegic so i rarely travel with anyone. This visit i was booked in room 801 which is supposed to be a handicap or wheelchair room. The most glaring problem was a grab bar setup that was literally on top of the toilet so when i transferred onto the toilet seat i had to sit sideways. Second, when i tried to access the closets in the hallway i couldnt open the door to the closet because it would hit my wheelchair and i constantly had to reposition myself to try to accomplish this task. these are very fixable problems but i suggest a consultation with a firm who specializes in this area or a consultant who actually is disabled and perhaps also has a law degree to insure local Manila code compliance as well. BTW, food is awesome

Went for the location, will come back for the royal treatment (and food)”
We stayed here for 2 nights - the night before and after my oath taking in CCP. I chose it first because of it's proximity (it is right behind CCP) and I did not want my parents to have to walk far for the venue. I did not expect that we will be given the royal treatment. My mom and my brother did not want to leave the hotel and instead just wanted to lounge in the room and around the hotel. They particularly enjoyed the buffet. Spirale is amazing, as per usual. They also attended to every single request efficiently. Kudos to the staff and management! Keep up the amazing work. We will most definitely be back. :)

Good location but tired rooms.”
This was my second time staying in Sofitel because of event in their ballrooms. This time I got the standard room on the 4th floor, instead of the premier rooms on the 10th floor. Some of my group had the better rooms so those were slightly more appealing but relatively the same. The rooms in my group were clean and well kept but couldn't help but notice the outdated feel and tiredness of the room. The bed had depression in the middle so I rolled in slightly. I don't understand how this hotel has so many VIPs staying here but the rooms are average if not below compared to the newer hotels. Atleast the front desk and special check-in did not piss me off this trip, they were very helpful and patient helping us check in several rooms. I only stay here if theres a party, my family has already had 3 events in their ballrooms. In that regard, they have nice ballrooms with a fast responding team for events.

Booked my parents for their 40th wedding anniversary. Messaged them in advance asking for early booking which was not available. This is ok with me but what was not ok was for my parents to wait way beyond the promised check-in time. They did however do a recovery by giving my parents complimentary late checkout.

The only big hotel I know that does not have a reception area. People are either standing or lining up to check in which is kinda funny because even a small size hotel could afford a decent reception area. After check in, we requested to fix our bed as we go to dinner. When we went back, it's still a mess even though the operator guaranteed our bed will be made up by the staff. Rooms are old, the atmosphere is like going to an old public library. Buffet breakfast is a dud. They had 21 stations but not really that impressive. Japanese food, they don't have as basic as tempura. Pinoy breakfast, they don't have a longganisa. Even a lowly carinderia has a longganisa. Their wait staff are very friendly and ensures we had a good time. But good service could not make up for a bland food. Overall, a bearable disappointment.

Tried to catch some food after my arrival, but their restaurant was close down around 10pm?! A bit too early perhaps. There is sports bar, but I do not like the environment. End up with room service.

Tired rooms but very nice hotel”
The hotel and grounds were fantastic. The sunset on Manila Bay was gorgeous. The hotel breakfast was AMAZING - definitely worth having, despite the cost, although we couldn't eat our moneys worth. The rooms are very tired and are in need of a face-lift but the bed was comfy and that's all we needed. The hotel is a great location for a quick trip to the airport but it is a bit out of the way of the other areas in Manila ie Makati. Having said that, we walked to Intramurous in the day and it was fine, and it isn't too far from Rizal Park. This hotel is perfect for those who want to enjoy Manila and return to a nice pool in the afternoon after a day of walking and exploring. There are plenty of Chinese and seafood restaurants 30 minutes walk from the hotel.

Great place to watch the Pyrotechnic display”
We booked at Sofitel to watch the Pyrolympics at MOA. We paid extra for a Bayview room, and was given a poolside view! They obliged us when we asked to change rooms for a view of MOA but did not refund the bayview guarantee fee. We loved the views of both. The room is as expected of a luxuru hotel. Great bed, a picturesque balcony, hot showers... strange though that there was no bidet in the room toilets but the common toilets downstairs have them. We asked for a pitcher of water as their provided bottled water was tiny. There was also a charge for such a request. They offered to give more bottles water instead. Appreciated, but felt like a huge step backward with regard to their so-called environmental efforts (they supposedly contribute tobtree planting). We've been to 2 resorts/hotels just recently that provided a big bottle of water in either Kleen Kanteens or a glass bottle. I hope big chains, such as Sofitel, will follow suit and make greater strides to reduce their environmental

Facilities are all so clean. The staff has the best customer service, very accommodating and attentive to the needs. The approach is very personal. We were given an upgrade of the room with no charge which allow us to enjoy and relax more. Outside of the hotel is intagramable. The swimming pool is very nice. My kids enjoyed it. But we were placed inside Boracay room during breakfast instead of the Spiral resto area since it was filled-out (according to the staff) but we saw some vacant areas still but the area was not given not us despite of my request.
