Spacious 2 bedroom condo
April 26, 2013
Stayed here with my family for 5 days and was impressed compared to a condo we stayed at previously. We are in the market for a 2 bedroom condo and really want one with this space and layout. There is a maid's room with their own bathroom that is not in use but you could use the room as storage for your luggage if you need the space. The building is very old, but the condo itself is updated. The condo is beautifully decorated with art pieces and really felt like home. The aircon in the living room never got cold so don't think keeping it on while you're out will make the temp cooler, you will just rack up your electric bill. Brenda is very nice and accommodating. She was not expecting us because of miscommunication but she quickly set up the room for us. I do advise giving her a call on the day you're coming. You need to bring your own toiletries and towels. I would suggest that the condo needs a teapot/water kettle, blow dryer, and clothes iron. The laundry service in the garage takes 3 days so may not be advisable if your stay is short. There isn't a gym in the building and Trader's hotel wouldn't let me use their gym unless we were a guest. It was a nice surprise to see morning joggers/walkers on Manila Bay and CCP. I would also suggest a map of the area and key points of interest. We found a map of Chicago and the Transit system which we found amusing because that's where we're from. Your safety here is NOT comprised. We felt very safe here, there weren’t any vendors or random people standing outside of the entrances of the building. The security guards did their job well. Whenever we are looking for a place to stay in the Malate area we will always look up Ipat's place!
