Be careful dealing with this individual. I initially booked for 30 days and informed the host I may need to extend and was told it was 'no problem. When I tried to extend my stay the host informed that it would be a new booking at almost double the price despite the fact the extension would have my stay to six weeks. The room is also not as it looks in the photos. It was also not that clean especially under the bed. The wifi was also cut off three days before I was due to check-out.
A+++ Good Location , tidy apartment, friendly host.
Apartment is close to Cash and Carry and jeepney/buses. Host was accommodating and friendly, responses were quick.
Amazing room and excellent service. Wonderful owners, who waited for me till 3am to check in. The I now have a standard place to stay in when in Manila.
The unit was spotlessly clean. Danna the owner/manager was super polite and very responsive. I sent her e-mails prior to arrival and she was always very quick in getting back to me. Once I arrived, I sent her a text message for fresh towels and I had them within 15 min. The flat screen TV is mounted in a perfect location for watching TV while in bed. The Wifi worked well. The furniture is reasonably nice. It is way too hot to walk anyplace, but catching a taxi is super easy. The location was as the description said convenient to most things. The swimming pool was very nice. The building security was competent and made me feel relatively safe.
The problems I had with the unit, I booked this condo based on the pictures which clearly show a stove and mentions all cooking utensils. What I got was one tin pan and one small tin pot & a table top two burner hot plate. I passed up on many other condos for similar price because a stove was important to me. Second the size, while the size is listed, in my opinion the pictures are a bit miss leading. It looks a lot bigger than it is. As an American I really had no concept of just how small 24 sq. meters really is. For your information, two king size beds fit side by side in about 20 square meters. This condo is basically a small bedroom with a sink and kitchenette against one wall (separate bathroom / CR). Third and final, the shower is super small and must be held by hand only (at the time of this review). The mount for the shower head was broken and made taking a shower a chore.
I like to cook so I probably wouldn't stay there again. But If you can get past the lack of a stove, “real” pots and pans, the size of the unit, and tiny shower, it's a very cute unit, and not bad for one or two people for the price.
