The Peninsula Manila is a landmark hotel that has been a destination in its own right since opening in 1976. Their classic lobby, an architectural gem that best exemplifies the city’s glamorous side. Along with extraordinary service and legendary hospitality, the hotel features elegant public areas that complement its 351 freshly renovated, spacious guestrooms and suites that complement the timeless Filipino character. The Peninsula Manila enhances the natural color palettes of blues, grays, and greens, creating an airy space that reflects a light tropical style. The finest linens and softest pillows promise a stay of calm and tranquility, further enhanced by Filipino warmth and personalized service.
Relax in the new, bespoke space The Gallery Club Lounge with a view overlooking the hotel’s iconic lobby and monumental “Sunburst” sculpture, a specially commissioned piece by National Artist for Sculpture Napoleon “Billy” Abueva. Original commissioned artwork by Filipino Figurative Expressionist master Ang Kiukok and beloved cartoonist and humorist Larry Alcala – both acclaimed National Artists for Visual Arts and prints by Filipino-Spanish contemporary photographer Francisco “Paco” Guerrero adorn the walls. The 18-foot-high (7 meters) floor-to-ceiling glass windows that run the length of the gallery and let in bright, tropical sunlight will transform the space into an “Art Gallery in the Sky".

The Peninsula Hotel Makati .... Perfect for all reasons.”
You can stay at the Shangri La and pay a lot more money, and you can enjoy the aging plumbing and lights in your room. Or you can stay at the Peninsula, and enjoy being treated as a visiting family member. The location is as good as you can have in Makati. The hotel is across the street from everything. The stock exchange, the beautiful park, all the malls, Glorietta, Greenbelt, Rustans, Landmark. The view of the Manila skyline is enough to keep you looking out the window in your room for a long time. The hotel and all facilities are immaculate. Not just clean. Spotless, polished, cared for with such pride. The housekeeping staff is friendly and efficient. If you want to go out for only a few minutes, they will have your room clean and cozy when you get back. The wonderful people on the staff make every effort to do their services on your schedule, so you can enjoy your time uninterrupted. The staff at the Peninsula is by far the best asset. Every staff member makes an obvious effort to make the guest feel welcomed, appreciated, and cared for during their stay at the Peninsula. All the facilities are wonderful. The food is some of the best you can find in Makati, and and will be pleasing to all palates, no matter where you come from. The Peninsula hotel is my home in Manila. I have stayed at most of the better hotels in Makati, all of which are very good. I must say though, that the Peninsula makes me feel like I am home, and so comfortable and relaxed. My fiance and I sat outside the driveway at the entrance at 4 am, and sang songs to each other. It was quiet, peaceful, and though there were many security guards close by, they left us alone and allowed us our romantic moments. Thank you Peninsula staff !! You're all the best and most professional in the business.

My favorite five star hotel in Manial”
Unless it is on an expense account a rarely stay in 5 star hotels. I make the Pen in Manila an exception, especially when there is a good price on Agoda. There are several newer 5 Stars in Makati but The Pen remains my top choice. Everything you would want in a top hotel but it has a charm and comfort I do not find in many the others. I had to only rate it a 4 on location for one reason and that has to do with the difficultly in managing Makati traffic. Unlike the other 5 Stars in Makati The Pen is on the opposite side of Ayala Ave. form the shopping and dinning in Greenbelt and Glorietta. There is no street level crosswalk at Makati Ave & Ayalia making it necessary to walk extra distance and use the under passes or to take a taxi. Taxis are cheap in Manila but at times in this area hard to find and the traffic can be bad, turning what should be a 10 minute walk across the street into 30 or 40 minute. Walking using the under-passes is a bit longer (20 minutes) but on a hot muggy Manila day that can seem a long time. You can often find me in the Peninsula Lobby Bar enjoying the ambiance of a grand hotel even when I am not a guest.
Dear Stuart, Thank you very much for taking time and providing feedback regarding your stay with us. While I am pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay with us, I understand your concerns regarding traveling around the city. I would like to let you know that we do provide coasters for in-house guests which will take you to and from the neighboring malls. Please be assured that I have raised your review with our management team will continue to strive for the highest service standards. Warm regards, Patrick Behrens Hotel Manager The Peninsula Manila
The best location in Makati City, Philippines”
The price is a bit too high but since I want my parents to experience the finest hotel in Manila, we booked in Manila Peninsula. The hotel is located at the heart of Makati City but the rooms are small. What I love best is their lobby, it is well decorated during Christmas season. The staffs are really friendly (they offered late check out) and they accompanied us to our room and taught us how to operate the things inside the room. I also love the hotel restaurant inside the hotel because it serves great food and many varieties. The pool area is also a good place in the hotel. All in all, I can say that it is worth the price. I will stay here again.
Very beautiful hotel. Staff is warm, friendly, and attentive from the moment you step into the hotel. I booked three rooms and all three were very comfortable and clean. Bathrooms have strong water pressure and Oscar De La Renta toiletries. Guests are provided with two complimentary bottles of water each day in their rooms. I dined in the lobby and at the Escolta. Food is excellent. If you have the buffet breakfast at the Escolta, give yourself enough time to eat and don't rush, or you will not get your money's worth and enjoy the wonderful selection of food available. Fitness center is open 24 hours, and has complimentary towels and bottled water at every station. I worked out at 5:00 am everyday that I was there. If you wish, they will provide you with a complimentary personal trainer to coach you during your workouts. Located across the Makati Commercial Center, you can easily walk to the various malls and many restaurants. I highly recommend the Peninsula Manila.

A true five star property”
We arrived to Manila late from Hong Kong after a delayed flight for just one night en route to Palawan. Camille from The Peninsula had been in touch with us saying that their staff would be tracking our flight and ensured us that a driver would be there to transport us safely to the hotel (as per our request), no matter what time. She was right. Upon landing (late), we were immediately whisked into a car and driven to The Peninsula, which looked impressive - even at almost midnight. Walking in, the Peninsula's lobby almost takes your breath away. Grandiose. The woman checking us in was exceptionally warm and welcoming and got us into our rooms quickly and efficiently, calling to confirm our departure time/driver reservation for the following morning. Our room was clean and the bed was so cozy that we both uttered an "Ooooohhh my Gooooddd," as we sunk in after a day of travel. We slept like babies in the beautiful bed with help of black-out curtains. Breakfast the next morning was something out of 5-star Dubai brunch. Although there was a wait to get seated, the line moved quickly and the breakfast spread was jaw-dropping. Salad stations, western breakfast foods like bacon/omelets/potatoes/baked goods, yogurt/granola, fresh fruit a plenty, juice shooters, phillipine traditional breakfast foods, etc. WOW. We left feeling satisfyingly full and toured the outdoor pool area, which was peaceful and beautiful - we wished we had more time to stay and explore, but our flight to Palawan beckoned. Thank you, Peninsula for delivering 5-star service and facilities. We enjoyed ourselves!! Well done.
Excellent five star hotel”
The Peninsula Manila is certainly my favourite hotel in Manila.. Excellent location at the centre of Makati, 10 minutes walking distance from Greenbelt. Lovely rooms, helpful and friendly staff, big delicious buffet breakfast. Not the cheapest hotel in Makati, but certainly worth the extra price

Anniversary Staycation - Preggy Friendly”
My husband and I had the best staycation in Makati with The Peninsula Manila. Requested for something special since it's our anniversary and they surprised us with a cake in the room when we checked in. I would like to commend Benjie from front desk for being extra nice and accommodating, he even assisted us to our room which was near the elevator so I wouldn't get tired walking down the hallway. Requested also for extra pillows for me to get comfy during my sleep and they didn't hesitate to give us extra. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The vibe of the place is really pinoy! Would love to have my foreign friends check in here.

Excellent Facilities and Service”
I would strongly recommend the Peninsula Manila Hotel for its location, facilities and for its service excellence. I have known the so called Manila Pen for over 30 years and I am so glad that it has continued to keep its 5 star quality rating. The moment we have entered the lobby we were greeted by courteous staff, check in was easy and wow! The ambience is really a 5 star!!! As we have entered our room, we have smelled the scent of cleanliness and it’s the only hotel I’ve known to do two housekeeping (morning and night) housekeeping by very nice, cheerful and helpful housekeepers. It has all the facilities that one needs under one roof! The food was superb with a selection on where to dine. My husband and I enjoyed most the Salon de Ning with the live band which also allowed its guests

The stay was excellent. ”
5 adults, 1 child. 2 deluxe rooms (king & 2-bed) Our stay at the Peninsula Manila was near perfect. Rooms were spacious and accommodating. Facilities and the breakfast was great. Staff was courteous and professional. The ambience had a welcoming feel to it. Even the 2-bed room came with an extra bed where I don't remember paying for one... Sweet! However, I wish that shower area was a little bigger, I felt enclosed while showering. I also wished the gym was 24-hrs. Overall, we had a wonderful time there (for one day, the kids didn't want to leave the room). Thank you Peninsula Manila. I would definitely come back.
The Pen is the best”
I could not believe the price being charged for an overnight stay at The Peninsula in Agoda. I thought it was a mistake because The Pen was probably the most expensive hotel in Makati because it was the oldest yet the most prestigious. When I saw the price, I immediately booked it and was ecstatic that it came with free buffet breakfast which on its own, already covered the cost of Agoda. I will continue to look out for more deals in Agoda because it certainly made my kids so happy. We truly enjoyed our room, the super friendly staff who looked like they would do almost anything to grant you your wish. Loved it!

Stayed at the Peninsula Hotel Manila from August 26 to September 3, 2018, was very satisfied with the overall service given to me, special thanks to Ms. Johana and Ms. Queenie room attendants of Room 807 who did a wonderful job cleaning and tidying the room each and every single day of my stay, special thanks to eveyone at the Escolta Restaurant where I take my daily breakfast buffet as part of my room package each morning specially to the hostesses/greeters at the door who bring you to the table of your choice and the restaurant staffs who make sure you are well taken cared during the duration of the breakfast, and fast and efficient front desk check in and check out with very pleasant and hospitable services, nothing negative about this hotel at all except 👍👍👍, will recommend it to friends if visiting Manila.

Great Location, Awesome Property”
The Peninsula Manila is everything and beyond what you would expect from a Peninsula property. It is exceptionally maintained and the staff are some of the most courteous that I have come across, ANYWHERE. The atmosphere is one of total luxury, where you know you're staying where everyone else wants to stay (every visitor I hosted stated exactly this). The restaurants and lifestyle venues are top, as are the hotel's other facilities. The gym makes some full membership gyms look like a joke. :) Overall, full marks to The Peninsula Manila, its GM, and her amazing staff.
Very nice and comfortable hotel”
super happy that i chose peninsula hotel, the experience there was actually way beyond my expectation. even though it was built pretty earlier, one of the oldest 5 star hotels in makati city area, it's still very good. high ceiling, clean and big room, nice swimming pool and awesome restaurant at the lobby. but the internet connection was ok, actually not good enough, but i guess that's pretty common in manila, where internet speed was usually not fast enough.
It was our 5th anniversary. We merely mentioned it when booking the room. Manila is a very crowded city and we had a very stressful trip there and within the city to the hotel. When we entered the foyer of the Peninsula there was a huge change of atmosphere like an oasis in the desert. Everyone was cordial and friendly. The reception clerk actually escorted us to our room and there we found a bottle of wine, a luscious dessert, a cheese and wine platter, as well as a bed decorated with red rose petals. There was even a greeting card wishing us a happy 5th anniversary. I don't know how the administration creates such a hotel but EVERY employee we had contact with was friendly, professional, and courteous. If I was rich, I would live there. Great job, Peninsula!
great location , nice hotel staff , luxury room”
i have stayed in the peninsula manila for 3 nights during july 14-17 ,2014. i am here to say thank you all ,especially the concierge one who named CARLO. Due to the typhoon GLENDA , my flight on july-16-14 ,from manila to taipei , had been cancelled. He assisted me so nicely and friendly to rebook my flight for taipei immediately. I felt so safe and security because of CARLO's favor. I am here to say thank you again to the peninsula manila all and CARLO. the best experience in my manila business tour i ever have.
Great staff and Amazing hotel”
We are returning guests at The Peninsula Manila and we celebrated my mom's birthday this time. We requested for a simple birthday surprise for my mom and the hotel successfully surprised my mom after the breakfast buffet. My mom was very pleased and I was happy that the cake was meant for sharing and not just a simple sliced cake. I would like to commend the Escolta staff for attending to our request. Special mention to the manager who led us to our room and even offered a complimentary bed for our mom as the room was paid for 3 persons. Our room had a small issue on the leaking electric kettle and it was immediately resolved accordingly. Thank you for another wonderful and comfortable experience :)

Luxurious, oldfashioned hotel”
We enjoyed our stay at the Peninsula, one of the first luxury hotels in Manila. Although some might consider this hotel somewhat outdated, it still exudes grandeur and style. I loved the grand lobby, the comfy beds, the marbled bathrooms, and the pool. It is centrally located in Makati, very near the shopping malls. The buffet breakfast cannot be missed. Staff was always very friendly and accomodating.
Elegant hotel with great service”
We had a wonderful stay at the Peninsula Hotel in Makati. The rooms were in excellent condition and recently refurbished. The bathrooms were excellent. The service was professional and genuinely friendly and helpful. It was a little oasis for us after a rewarding but challenging visit to Laguna Province. The food was ok, but not great. The waffles at breakfast were the best. The pasta in room service did not have much flavour. We've found that room service food quality has improved a lot all over the world, but the room service and buffet food here was more of the "standard international hotel" kind. The pool is small, but with lovely landscaping. We did enjoy the food here more - the tuna tataki is really superb, especially the ponzu jelly. And when you order, they bring you chips and a kind of okashi. The chips were great, but the okashi were a bit stale. The only thing with the pool was that the drinks weren't great. Again, they were a little watered down and flavourless. They do bring out complimentary shots (no liquor) of fruit granita type drinks regularly, and this was a lovely surprise. The young coconuts were great but very expensive. Suggestions for improvement: - more shade in the pool area - more dishes like the tuna tataki with the ponzu jelly - more soaps in the bathroom, so you don't have to keep transferring the soap from tub to shower to sink
Amazing, memorable, and relaxing stay...”
We had an amazing, memorable and relaxing stay at The Peninsula Manila, thanks to the 5-star hotel service, excellent ambiance, caring staff, great food/breakfast and amenities. We really felt special and well-taken cared of during our 2-night stay to celebrate our anniversary, as we received complimentary treats and surprise amenities which made our stay even more memorable. It was overall a great experience at the Peninsula Manila and we'll make sure to come back again next time.
