-Kitchen with Nespresso machine & refrigerator
-Bed linen and towels, toilet paper, Shampoo
-Bathroom with strong hot shower
-Size: 30 m2
Airport to condo: Yellow taxi for PHP (phone number hidden) USD)
Meter taxis to go out or to airport – cheap & can be easily hailed in front of the building.
The pool does cannot be recommanded. Better use the pool of Century Plaza Hotel beside, which is clean and nice and accesable with a entrance fee.
Interaction with Guests
I am very open to any kind of questions & requests. Welcome to the Philippines!
Balagtas Royal Mansion is behind Pablo Ocampo Ave., very near to LRT Station Vito Cruz and University of La Salle. Short distance to the Airport, Mall of Asia, Mabini and Makati.

Other Things to Note
The Appartment is fully furnished in a European way and allows a great City Life! The surrounding gives you a touch of Manila.
Smoking not allowed
Extensive Cooking not possible, no exhaust
It's a lovely apartment with many nice little provisions, from power adapters to a vanity mirror to a digital safe. The price was right. Stefan was very responsive to any queries of mine. The proximity to Harrison plaza was convenient.
My only caveat is to single guys hoping to date. While not a bad neighborhood, it's very "raw" and you may have a hard time getting people to visit as opposed to a more central location.
Alleine der Blick aus dem Fenster dieser Studio-Wohnung ist super. Hier erwartet den Gast ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis und Stefan ist ein durch und durch netter, sympathischer Typ, auf den man sich einfach verlassen kann. Jedes Lob, das hier schon mal geschrieben wurde hat seine Berechtigung.
The host had a young woman meet me in the lobby to escort me to my room and give me a quick overview. The photos are very accurate. But you must keep in mind that the building and surrounding area is completely populated with locals. Which is not a bad thing, but it is run down, and a little dirty. Only 2 of the 4 elevators work, and with the condo being on the 23 floor taking the stairs is not the best option.
The condo is clean and well (website hidden), cable TV, WIFI, and hot shower all work just fine. The small kitchen has all the items that you will need, with the exception of a small stove. That should only be an issue if you stay more than a few weeks like I did. Eating out every meal adds up by week 4.
When taking a taxi anywhere take a quick screen shot of a map of the area to help the drive get you back to your location. Or just tell them the name of the large hotel near by.
There are 2 small stores on the 3d floor. Where you can buy all of the food items that you need. Also on the 3rd floor is a laundry. turn around is about 24 hours.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and would book it again in a heart beat. As long as I am traveling alone. Great value for the money.
Very easy host to deal with. Had a concern about the internet, and he fixed it the same day.
Nothing bad only good whords about the disponibility of stefan and his peoples around like miss linda and miss airtel that help me to move in and out from the appartment.i appreciated everything expecially the education and the service, the appartament was perfect with all the essential staff and more else you need inside an apparent for rent.the place was very clean and comfortable and the price also special,if I must consider the house,the central location easy to move around specially with train,the price compare to the other house around it's very good,I am luky to found a place and person like this in manila so I can tell to everybody if you need a good place to stay and spend small money if you choice Stefan you don't make mistake
Stefan always responds quickly and gives the information you need. His place is pleasant with nice hot shower, tv, and internet. This condo is comfortable and the people in and around the building are friendly. I really enjoyed staying here for 1 week. I would definitely come again.
