The condo was exactly as it appears in the photos; a simple open studio layout, with very clean and neat modern decor. Unlike many apartments in Manila, and studios specifically, this unit was quite roomy and comfortable. It accommodated two people easily. Large, flat screen HD television with cable channels, air conditioning, queen size bed, and super fast wifi made the nights in very easy. The building is in Legaspi Village, located off of 2 main streets, so getting a taxi is never a problem. It's also a short walk to MRT, and only about five or six blocks to Greenbelt. The mid-block location also makes for quieter nights, due to less traffic noise.
May, the host, was great. She was very accommodating and made herself available around the clock, in case there was ever a need or question.
When I travel, I appreciate staying somewhere that is comfortable and functional; a place that is easy to get rest/sleep and spend time in, and that makes it easy to move about the city. This place does both very well, and the rate was awesome.
This will be my first place to check on for my next trip to Manila. You will not find a place with the same style, room, amenities, and optimal Makati location, at a better rate, that is for sure.
