Manila Hotel represents the country of the Philippines very well. It welcomes everybody with a true and binding Filipino trait. And that’s why it becomes extra special this Christmas 2017.

The staff exude warmth and hospitality right at the moment you step outside your car. They make sure their guests are welcomed straight away by making sure you are guided to where you plan to go in terms of checking or dining in. Comfort for you is their aim and so they will free your hands of heavy luggage straight up. 

For Christmas 2017, they decorated their lobby outrageously with red, gold and glitter. The kubo houses the souvenirs you could take home with you as you check out and there are good rice cakes and dessert treats too. Jump in with me in taking a glimpse what it looks like from the inside.


In 2015, Trip Advisor had awarded them the Certificate of Excellence. In 2016, it is Top Choice’s one of the bests. They became the best restaurant in 2017! With their fabulously themed nights, Cafe Ilang Ilang had won many Filipino hearts on top of the tourists it had amazed. Cafe Ilang Ilang offers fusion of foods and viands from different continents to cater to the versatile tongue of travellers and guests that visit the hotel. The spacious restaurant is open daily from 6:30am ’til 10:30pm. Seating capacity is at 150 guests at a time. Starting from Php1,500++ up, breakfast buffet, brunch, lunch and dinner may be availed. A la carte menu is available too.


Many balikbayans opt for Manila Hotel to visit because of its outstanding service, world-class amenities and of course the hospitality it incomparably gives. Just like in any Filipino home, The Manila Hotel aims to bring comfort. It nurtures your needs. I believe there’s 5 people who actually told me, Cafe Ilang Ilang got the best buffet deal and that it’s their favourite. May your experience be same as mine. Most especially how the waiters and waitresses at Ilang Ilang made my mom’s day special.


I have a deep regard for your time. It's when I write and cook that time becomes non-existent. I love learning and while you think I am the kind of lady who has a lot of things to say, just take it that I was sharing what I had learned with full impact over a cup of Joe.
