Myself being a Filipino, I Stayed there til the 19th of September for 2 weeks and was definately a great location to stay at! The hotel staff were great! Close to malls and amenities. a 10 minute walk would get you to Megamall! Being in the apartment made me feel like a star living in a busy city. Was definately worth the money you spend! I miss this apartment already! I would definately recommend this to anyone going back to Manila for a week or 2! There's also a massaging parlor at Starmall which is a 5minute walk for less than 300 pesos (1Hr) definately great place to go for a relaxing massage. Again, thanks for letting us stay here! We'll be back!

I just spent two weeks there and will be re-booking soon as I am planning my winter vacation. I was amazed that it is so well equiped.and close to the nearby shopping centers. Laundry was picked up and returned in 24 hours. Appliance are in excellent condition with a flat screen tv. The airconditioners are adequate and silent. The unit overlooks Shaw Bvld but no traffic noise.

Used Albert's Manila apartment as my home base. Stayed on and off for 2 weeks without a problem. Everything was as he said it was and his manager Nalia was very easy to work with. In addition the staff at the Lancaster Hotel were wonderful. I was always treated as if I were a hotel guest.

EXCELLENT CHOICE WILL STAY AGAIN
EXCELLENT CHOICE WILL STAY AGAIN
Wife & I stayed for 2 weeks through December 1, 2010. Very comfortable and clean. Everything supplied. Central location-close MRT, StarMall SM Mega Mall, Shangri-La Plaza. The local manager, Naila is absolutely fantastic. Met us on arrival at Hotel after midnight and could not do enough for us. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Manila and don't want to be right in the city, this is for you. Safe area walked everywhere, night & day - shops for all you need so close. Pool and restaurant in hotel.Great price too! Highly recommended - Thank you Albert and Naila for a great and hassle free stay.
