So, we made it to Manila. It was dark when we arrived and since your truly thought the plane was at 8, not at 10. We headed back to the airport in the dark. I wish I could say I love the Manila airport... You have to wait in a general holding section after security (screening number 1) and watch a board that resembles a train station schedule board …
... Manila began as a settlement on the banks of the Pasig River, and its name originates from "Maynilad," referring to the mangrove plant known as Nilad, which was abundant in the area. Prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, Manila was home to Muslim-Malays, who were descended from the Arabs, Indians, East Asians and other Southeast Asians. In 1571, 50 years after ...
... for the Spanish. The Philippinos and Chinese lived outside of the city walls. There were seven gates into the walled city. Overlooking the mouth of the Pasig River the Spanish built a huge fort to protect the city called Fort Santiago. This was built on the site of the original Malay settlement. The fort has been used to house Philippino and American prisoners during WWII as well as Philippino revolutionaries the most famous of which was ...
... friends at United and our luggage was checked all the way through to MNL and while we spent the night in LA we didn't have to drag our bags with us and we had all we needed in our carry-on for the night and then boarding passes to expedite us through security the next morning.

... of them. Same can be said for Phnom penn. Seen some very sexy pimped out cars since we've been here. Nicest looking was a honda here day 1, dragon decals and a spolier that could have decapitated a flock a pteradactyls. Might have had a lawn mower under the hood though. Even saw a taxi yesterday with neon green illuminating everything around it, same deal. My days of racing stripes are 15 years past, my car looks positively beaten up. Sexiest car was an Evo in Beijing. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bayview Park Hotel Manila
The hotel does not look like what they have in their website. Very run down and seems like whoever own it does not have any interest in renovating it. They put us in a room with molds and when we told the front desk they do not know what to do and have no interest in moving us in any other room. The room was so old it got cracks all over the wall. Fridge does not work and yup! They charge us twice for 1 drink we took out of the fridge! The place smells so old and so moldy. Phone does not work and towels are so old that the towel I use to dry my dog looks better! They have rip on their old bedsheets they use. The restaurant was terrible! One time we ate breakfast the food that suppose to be hot was so cold! We did not stay the whole duration of our stays that we paid through Expedia and move out. Of course, Expedia refuses to re-imburse for the rest of our money. There is nothing good I can say about this hotel. It is not a 3 star hotel like they say they are. I will not even give them a star for that matter!
For $40.00/night, OK (Good for Short Stays Only)
For the $40.00 I paid for one night, I think I got I paid for. The room was small but comfortable. The carpet in the hallway needs to be replaced, 'twas faded and stained. There were some renovations going on. Some areas looked newly painted. I think they need to fast-track these renovations because the hotel and its premises could use a major overhaul. The breakfast buffet was ok. The Starbucks coffee shop next to the dining area was one good thing about this hotel. The front desk staff could be more generous of their smiles. That can make up for a lot of shortcomings. The bell boy was very helpful. Would recommend for short stays only.
Scariest Shower I've ever had
The price I paid for the Bayview was reasonable, one of the most inexpensive I could find in the area. I stayed with my wife and daughter for about a week and found the room to be of average cleanliness but very small. Smaller than most 3 star hotel rooms(days inn, holiday inn, etc.) The thing that sticks out in my mind the most about my stay was the electrical outlet they had IN THE SHOWER. No, I'm not talking about a outlet BY the shower for use while shaving at the sink, but literally IN the shower wall. Needless to say this was a little unnerving trying to keep water away from the outlet while showering at the same time.
My family and I were suppose to "celebrate" our new year's eve...we ended up wishing that we stayed home!
Rats and Roaches in my room
My brother and I checked in this hotel and we found big ben (rats) inside the room after few days. We were moved to another room and presence of small roaches all over the bathroom noted. Not only that, early in the morning you'll hear loud music played in the function room which is the top level of our room. Also, we were charged of drinks from the mini bar twice.
I personally do not recommend this hotel to any of my relatives or friends not even my dog. I'm very much disgusted.
We stayed at the Bayview Park Hotel for two nights in December.
when my family and I stayed in this hotel they made us pay for drinks from the mini bar which we didn't consume! imagine paying for something you didn't even get a taste of! grrrrrr. we were out the whole day then arrived at around 9 pm to get a quick shower before taking off to meet with friends again for dinner. then we came back around 2 am totally exhausted and right away slept the night off. when we checked out the next day we were told we consumed a soda and mineral water! how could this be? we were out almost the whole day! i asked to see the cleaners after we left coz they were the ones who told the front desk bout the consumed bottles in our room, they were all gone! the staff keft pointing fingers as to whom i'll talk to! this aint good folks! with no one to talk to, i paid it all! darn i won't stay in this hotel again!
the service was terrible. we asked for baby cot upon reservation at 2pm. then when we checked in at 6pm the same day, we reminded them about it. we went out for dinner and came back at 10pm, asked for the cot again. at 12mn, we called the desk to ask about the cot and then someone said they forgot about it. the cot arrived minutes after that call. by that time, the baby was fast asleep on the bed. was i supposed to say get the crib here in 10 minutes and you get a tip?!
I travel all over the world and I was very dissatisfied with your hotel. I paid for a superior room and it did not have any refridgerator stock. The shower had no hot water even after running it for 15 mins to get it hot, the sink was missing the control rod for the plug and the room was far below what I have had in hundereds of other 4 star hotels around the world.
