Peninsula is a group of 6 Asian and 3 American hotels of the highest standard. Their cheapest property is located in Manilas Makati area and is a great hotel. I stayed here for two night in a Grand Deluxe Room, their 5th highest room category and it was very comfortable. The room is a bit outdated, but the hotel is aware of that, but they are instead focusing on delivering great service, and they deliver at this point. I’ve met the many Philippines working in other Asian countries, and almost all speak excellent English which is a great benefit in providing professional service. I was very satisfied with the service, and it was on Mandarin Oriental level, and it made up the average room. I also liked the complimentary wireless internet. An unusual thing was the price level of room service. Extremely low for a top class hotel and good. The facilities is acceptable, and the swimming pool is nice although often crowded.
Overall an excellent choice in Manila and up to Peninsula’s standards.
My opinion: Great experience.
