Pros: Location and excellent service
Cons: The grounds are a little bit dated and need some cleaning
Location: Free shuttle to Mall of Asia
The service is excellent. Requests were given promptly and with a smile. The hotel is located along Manila De Bay. Don't forget to watch the fabulous Manila Bay sunset. Try the Spirals Buffet- the best buffet in the world although it is a little bit expensive.

Isolated and Overpriced, but we enjoyed it

3 out of 5
by from Bay Area, California
Posted Jan 20, 2017
Pros: Safe. Elegant. Nice place to entertain friends and family because of the beach view and swimming pool.
Cons: They can't do anything about their isolated location. The staff was very helpful.
Location: Nothing nearby - taxi ride to Mall of Asia, and other attractions.
We had two experiences at this hotel. The first was a week in a "deluxe room" and the second was a night in a "Superior Room" (Superior being lower than Deluxe). The deluxe room had a view of a parking lot and some nearby construction. The doors on the closet did not work, the light switches were wired weirdly (for example two switches in a single cover one turns on to the right the other turns on to the left), and one of the switches was actually hanging out of the wall. The worst thing was that it was located right in front of the elevator so we heard a lot of noise from people waiting for or coming out of the elevators. The superior room was cheaper but had a view of the pool and the beach and everything worked properly. It was also in the middle of a hall where we didn't hear any noise from elevator traffic. Our main disappointment with the hotel was its isolation. Nothing is walking distance so you have to take a taxi (70pp by metered taxi to the Mall of Asia for example, although the hotel shuttle will take you there for 300pp). There is usually not a taxi standing by, so you have to wait on a taxi. We were somewhat disappointed with the pool, which was uncomfortably cold and the circular design was not conducive to getting exercise or swimming laps. We ate at the hotel a number of times, but several times the meals were fixed price at about $60 per person, which was not in our budget, so our alternative was eating in the bar with the cigarette smokers.

Beautiful facility / Outdated rooms

The facility and grounds are beautiful. The restaurant is amazing and staff is world class. The rooms are outdated for the price they are asking. Not sure if we got a room that happen to be a bad one but the carpets were stained.

My 5 days stay at Sofitel

3 out of 5
by from Lesterjohnny
Posted Dec 22, 2016
I'm real disappointed with my room condition. The room carpet is old and the bathroom floor has old rusty stains. The furnitures in the room are old and scratches are visible everywhere. The cheap old chairs were uncomfy to sit on. I would rate the hotel staff 10 out 10 however. They were all nice and enthusiastic with their services, absolutely and categorically very well versed with hospitality no question about it.
