My 3 week stay in Mandaluyong turned into one month. This was not a problem for the owner. I rented this Condo as it was a 3 minute drive to my friends Condo in Wack Wack. It was perfect for me as a single W female first timer to the Philippines. The area is close to 3 shopping malls. With supermarkets. The Pool was very well maintained. The food in the Hotel quite was quiite good. If you have never been to Manila and can't speak Tagalog this the staff are very helpful. The manager of the Condo, and the owner are availbale to help if you have any problems.

Myself being a Filipino, I Stayed there til the 19th of September for 2 weeks and was definately a great location to stay at! The hotel staff were great! Close to malls and amenities. a 10 minute walk would get you to Megamall!

Being in the apartment made me feel like a star living in a busy city. Was definately worth the money you spend! I miss this apartment already! I would definately recommend this to anyone going back to Manila for a week or 2!

There's also a massaging parlor at Starmall which is a 5minute walk for less than 300 pesos (1Hr) definately great place to go for a relaxing massage.

Again, thanks for letting us stay here! We'll be back!

I can't say enough about the experience of staying in the condo, I enjoyed the location, the hotel staff were outstanding, I would recommend it to everyone I know. the owners are super people, and really take an interest in seeing everything goes well with your stay. I would like to say thank you to Abert and Edna for allowing me and my new bride the opportunity to share their condo. I look forward to this again soon. thank you again so much from the bottom of our hearts.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I just spent two weeks there and will be re-booking soon as I am planning my winter vacation. I was amazed that it is so well equiped.and close to the nearby shopping centers. Laundry was picked up and returned in 24 hours. Appliance are in excellent condition with a flat screen tv. The airconditioners are adequate and silent. The unit overlooks Shaw Bvld but no traffic noise.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Used Albert's Manila apartment as my home base. Stayed on and off for 2 weeks without a problem. Everything was as he said it was and his manager Nalia was very easy to work with. In addition the staff at the Lancaster Hotel were wonderful. I was always treated as if I were a hotel guest.
