Close to Manila Bay and great view of the city

Pros: The breakfast buffets and the bathroom
Cons: Modernize the rooms
Location: Mall of Asia is close by
The staff were helpful and polite, the breakfast buffet was great and lots of options. The room is big enough and the WiFi works. The shuttle service was a little bit expensive.

Amazing stay in Manila

Pros: Pool area and the breakfast buffet was amazing. Food at the pool restaurant was very good.
Cons: Taxi service. Not sure why the Hotel offered car service needs to be so much more expensive than the local taxi service.
Location: Not much to do nearby as the hotel is located away form the city. But the property has restaurant and bar and shops available.
Stayed at this hotel after a wonderful week in Lagen Island Resort in Palawan. Hotel is beautiful and all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is amazing and so many choices. Loved it. Did not like the fact that the hotel could not call on Taxis to pick up at hotel. Had to wait for taxi's when they drop off someone.

Manilia at its Best

We had a special and beautiful stay there while we were in Manilia. The hotel and staff were exceptional and the rooms exceeded our expectations. We will always remember our special moments that we experienced during our visit. We are ready to return.

I was so impressed with Sofitel in everyway. I just have no complaints at all.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I elected for the upgrade at check in and that was well worth the money. When I return to Manila I will be staying at Sofitel. Even the extras that are not included are reasonably priced. Hotel cabs, on site restaurants, spa and other amenities. The hotel, pool area and view of the bay are outstanding. It's away from the congestion of the heart of the city and less intimdating more enjoyable.

Great hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, amazing staff
This hotel was a great find. I did not find many "tourist" activitys that I would return to Manila for, but my husband and I agreed we would return if for nothing More than to retun to this hotel. Before staying here some of the reviews claimed this hotel was overpriced I also read complaints about the price of their taxi service, while I agree the items sold in the Hotel and there taxi service are more than similar services off the property they are by no means outrageously priced. We had taken a taxi back from a local mall and the driver wanted three times the going rate and the staff happy steped In and made sure we paid only a fair price. We upgraded to a room with lounge access and it was amazing food nd drinks all day, I would defiantly suggest the upgrade. We also had an Amazing time at the spa. Like I said yes some things at this hotel cost more than others in Manila but it is 5 star quality. A vacation with this kind of treatment back in the US would have easily been 2x what we paid here, for the people who think its to much stay at the best western they had OK rooms but if you want to be treated like a king head to the Sofitel.

Classy hotel

Pros: Free Internet
This hotel is not in the middle of Makati, but is one of the best hotels available in this location. Very close to Mall of Asia, and view from the hotel room was excellent. People in the hotel are friendly. If you are familiar with the philippines, you would like the comfort.
