FilNaija at Shell Residences
Great property, lousy management
The room was very nice, well furnished and stocked with plenty of comfort items. The staff however, isnt responsive and doesnt even have an office on the property... it takes hours to get a live person there if there is a problem or whatever. The pool is wonderful but EVEN paid guests must pay for each swimmer, every day! I found this to be very misleading as it was not mentioned in the expedia description. After staying 3 days and entertaining several guests I found it would have been cheaper to stay in a more expensive property that didnt charge for the swimming pool use... I'll not stay here again.
Close to Mall of Asia and airport.
Small room but it was nice, but not as nice as the pictures show. Room was not stocked with towels or bedding, had to ask for them. Water heater for shower did not work, had to take a cold shower.
An OK apartment for one person
I chose the Shell apartments because it was close to the Mall of Asia, within walking distance, and it was basically around the same price as a nicer hotel. If you've walked around the MOA you've probably received countless flyers on purchasing condo's/apartments in this area. This room is an excellent example of what you get. To start with, the actual condo is very small. It does seem to have everything you need though to include a washing machine, all necessary dishes, a microwave (although it didn't work), wireless internet access in the room, satellite TV (minimal channels), and air conditioning that works. The disappointing thing was parking. Online it states that parking only costs PHP 300 per stay. However, this is NOT true and you are advised to park out in the paid parking because it is safer. Unfortunately, the paid parking cost close to PHP 1000 a day (or $20). So if you rent a car for your visit and need parking, this is probably not the place you want to stay as it is very expensive unless you take your car out and park it at the mall for PHP 30 a day and bring it back at night. Just not worth the trouble since parking was advertised at 300 pesos a stay.
nice hotel close to MOA and close airport
Room is dirty and front dek is not helpfull. Guard don't have clue in customer service. staff are avoiding guest for services.
No Service, no Wifi!
Positive: View inside the Residence with Pools and some amenities. Close to the big "Mall of Asia" and to the Airport.
Negative: The Stuff wasnt interested and left fast. As we tried to use WiFi it didnt work - so we called all the numbers on the "Rules" to ask about but all numbers out of service! The Residence Receptionist gave us another number which worked, but i couldnt understand, what the Stuff talked to me and she hang up after a few seconds!
Back in the room we found out, that there was no soap, toothbrush, shampoo or toilet paper inside!
남의 집에 신세진 느낌
첫째가 접근성이어서 SM몰 근처로 잡느라 선택하였는데 은근 먼 느낌이었다.
차라리 조금 더 멀고 셔틀 운행하는 곳으로 잡았으면 하고 후회되었다.
또한 청소를 안 했는지 씽크대 선반에는 마늘과 소금이 들어 있었다.
휴지나 비누도 비치되어있지 않고 슬리퍼도 누가 버리고 간듯 한짝만 굴러 다니고 있었다.
샤워부스는 유리문으로 되어있었는데 좁아서 드나들기 불편하였고 변기는 앉기가 불안하도록 불안정했다.
규모는 커서 건물 1층에는 마사지샵, 편의점, 길건너에는 졸리비가 있어서 주변 편의 좋은 편이었으나
위의 이유로 이 곳을 다시 이용하고 싶지 않다.
가격도 저렴하지도 않고.
