Would not return
Ron the host was ok ,Aircon only in bedroom, black in grout on bathroom shower, needs to be steam cleaned.
Electric fan in kitchen area only.
I stayed 13 nights,reported no water in kitchen sink, upon leaving, still not repaired.
Had to use bathroom water to fill kettle,,yuck.
I previously stayed in better condos for cheaper rate,extremely disappointed.
I am sorry you're the only one who are not satisfied!
But here are my comments with you and your partner:
You are not reading the listing details, it is explicitly stated in my listing that only the bedroom is air-conditioned.
You are not reading my communications and not responding to my messages.
You damaged the kitchen faucet without reporting to us what really had happened, you just said no water in the kitchen. My co-host called your partner and she was told that the water supply is okay already, thus did not come to fix it. Now we are confused with you both, you don’t know what you are saying. The faucet is working well when you checked-in, you damaged it.
You put the rug on a pail with water and left it behind when you checked-out.
There is one plate missing, without reporting to us whether you have broken it during your stay or what, and you didn’t even mention it to us.
I am so glad that there is only one like you who stayed in my condo. I am just giving you consideration, that is why in my review to you I put 4* and said that I recommend you because I am NOT rude enough to put down someone who gave me business for 13 nights.
It is a very spacious condo! Double of the space of most condo out there. The separate en-suite master bedroom is great for extra privacy. The SM saveamore just across the street is a huge bonus too! Overall Great!
Thanks for staying @ One Manhattan Parkview 18 EF.
Two Thumbs Up!
It is a repeat stay in Ron’s condo and as before, it offers the comfort, convenience, and value that are hard to beat in this centrally-located high-rise in Cubao. Bright, wide windows that offer a nice view to the outside from this 18th Flr condo are a bonus. Add to that the ease in contacting hosts Ron and Claire for any questions that you might have. Two thumbs up!
Thanks Art for staying once again in our condo and also for giving a wonderful review!
Clean & Spacious
Felt safe with the coded key lock. Clean and spacious.
Amazing Host and Place!
Ron is very responsive, he respond very quick for all my questions. The place is conveniently located in the middle of Amanita Center, Cubao, QC, which is walking distance to the malls & restaurants. The picture say it all, the place is very cozy & clean. Thanks to Ron, very welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend his place!
Convenient & Comfortable!
Walking distance to all activities you could imagine while on vacation...bars, restaurants, shopping, movies, laundry facility close by, grocery across the street, street foods, I can go on and on. Pool is decent size, you can swim laps, gym can use updated equipments but beyond control of the host
