“The perfect home away from home. Five star luxury without the hefty cost”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

When my partner and I were looking to take our first trip together in Manila, we started looking into vacation rentals as a very cost-effective solution to accomodation. We were amazed at the places that were on offer, and most of all, at the price. Why would anyone stay at a five star hotel when you can hire a vacation rental that had just as as great, if even better, facilities?

From the moment we saw pictures of this rental, we were impressed. It stood out as having the best facilities, the cleanest room, and the most ideal location. Other rentals listed here and other sites were vague, but Erica, our contact, gave us everything we needed to know from the get-go. It's always a great sign when the owner has nothing to hide about the rental you're about to stay in.

When it came time to stay at the Gramercy Residences, it became apparent that we struck gold. My partner and I were impressed from the moment we stepped into the lobby. Being from Sydney, Australia, where real estate isn't exactly easy to come by, we're not exactly used to big, open spaces for hotel lobbies. The huge waterfall greeting you at the entrance and the friendly staff at reception made sure our first impression was a grand and welcoming one.

When we texted Erica that we had arrived, she stepped up our experience even more. I failed to mention that we were delayed by the infamous Manila traffic from the airport, but I had told Erica that we would be arriving there at a given hour. She was very patient and stayed in the premises until we actually arrived. She is also personally, one of the friendliest, warmest people I've ever met. We were obviously hoping our host was very gracious, but she would go above and beyond for us for the remainder of our stay.

The property itself was amazing. It was the perfect size for us, and we were glad to know that our host placed hygiene at the utmost importance. My partner and I place a high priority on the cleanliness of any place we stay. Needless to say, our expectations were exceeded. Everything was spotless.

The feeling and environment of the property was also fantastic. There was a coziness to the condo, while retaining its 'five star' feeling. It had an abundance of natural light from the view outside. It is well furnished, from the kitchen, living / dining area, and the bedroom. There are two air-conditioners, one in the bedroom and one in the living room area, so you'll never get hot (which is important given the usual humidity of Manila). It was a great feeling, staying at such a luxurious place while feeling like it was our home at the same time.

After our initial meet up in the property, our host Erica gave us a warm welcome and a pleasant stroll around the facilities once we had put our bags down. Nothing could prepare us for the beauty of the facilities. Since the Gramercy Residences only opened a year or two before our stay, everything had that 'brand new' and cutting edge feeling.

Highlights of the Gramercy include the swimming and spa area, which is one whole floor in the building dedicated to swimming pools (which also has a nice cafe), the games rooms, and the gym at the level above the swimming pool area.

The swimming pool area itself has to be experienced. This is a large, outdoor area with three swimming pools - one for general amusement, a lap pool, and a kids pool. Throughout this space are a sort of 'hanging garden' full of greenery, giving the space a lively and natural atmosphere. We spent a lot of time in this area during our stay, especially by the main pool, as there are comfortable day couches that you can relax in. These day couches even had a little 'hood' on it, so if you want a little bit of privacy or shade, you had that option.

There are also steam rooms in each respective change room, which is something I personally enjoy as a way to cleanse out the sweat and relax. The pool area overall became our usual hang out, particularly the cafe, where we became regulars. The only negative I can mention is that once you start hanging out here, you lose the motivation to go outside and see the rest of what this amazing, colourful city has to offer. Why brave the traffic and smoke to grab a bite when you can just go to the cafe and chill out at the pool?

Having a gym nearby or at the facilities of the property was important for us. We did not want to succumb to the weight we'd no doubt put on in a country famous for delicious treats that aren't particularly healthy. The gym was similar to the condo, in that it was very clean and ordered. It was also not very busy, which is great if you want first dibs on the squat rack and the bench when you step inside. It had everything we needed to keep fit, from the weights, to the running machines, and a nice stretching area. The stereotype of hotel or residence gyms is that it's nothing but a corner of room with a rowing machine here and there if you're lucky, but the Gramercy's gym was honestly a lot nicer than the gym I pay for back home.

The games room was great too, and hugely recommended if you're travelling with little ones with fickle entertainment tastes. It was also a great place to hang out if you have friends over, as there is a pool table area as well as videogames in another room.

Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better stay in this amazing country. The room was perfect, the facilities kept us relaxed and entertained, and our host had amazing customer service. In fact, after our stay, we were going to Boracay and Cebu for a week and a half, before going back to Manila. We had planned to just improvise where we would stay after the Boracay/Cebu trip, but Erica offered us the property again at the same rate that we had paid for, for the remainder of our stay in Manila. Our second stay here was of course, exactly the same - of the highest standard.

The Gramercy Residences is a wonderful place to stay in Manila. The perfect blend of amazing facilities, comfort, and luxury. When I hear that one of my friends is staying in Manila, this property will always be the first recommendation I give.

“An interesting experience”

For those who haven't tried condo living, this is well worth a try. If anything, it is an interesting and novel experience that differs from the usual hotel or serviced residence option.

Everything that has been advertised by the owner is true. In other words, you can look forward to the various features & amenities as advertised.

The owner herself is easily contactable and ever-ready to solve problems relating to the condo as and when they arise.

On the whole, the unit is tastefully furnished and decorated with simple touches that give it a 'homely' feel.

A note of caution - It's good to read through the information folders provided by the owner on the Dos & Don'ts of the unit as you're probably have to exercise more responsibility here than staying in a hotel.
