It's cheap! :D That's why I booked a room here. Centrally located and within a walking distance to here and there. There's McD, banks, 7E, laundry, bla bla below the apartment. But mind you. This apartment consists of a few blocks. The counter is at block 3. So I stayed at other block, needed to walk quite a distance to... More

Actually is a huge condo, terrible by the way where some of the apartments are from this company, it is a dangerous place and the apartment itself it is old and forget about kitchen or fridge. The only good thing is the location...............

I've stayed at this service apartment many times. Why? The staff are friendly. It's very cheap and the place is centrally located, so we walked everywhere - to the jetty, Philippines market, to the very delicious Welcome Seafood Restaurant across the road at Asia City etc. However, don't expect anything more than this. Almost each time I stayed, I got... More

My wife and I stayed at this location for 9 nights. There is lots of space, we stayed in a Studio apartment. It has a small kitchen area, fridge, stove, sofa, desk, night stands, tv, balcony, washroom with standing shower. It was great for our stay as we could reheat food (stove friendly only) and also stock up the fridge... More

When we booked the service apartments we knew it was low cost but we never expected the standard to be this low. We only just got here and we are already looking for a new place to stay. The corridors look like a place you get killed, the smell is unbearable and the room is crawling with bugs and the... More

I had stayed in many hotels from 4-5 stars to luxury villas and services apartments for work & leisure. This is by far the BEST service rendered apartment as the service crew would appear at your doorsteps in less than 15mins. Francis, the Resident Manager is an amazing guy. Thank you for taking care of us (including our trainers). Also... More

Rooms here are big but not clean. The management should spend more attention on cleanliness. Travelers always look for clean place to spend their nights. Good location, water front is just a short walk away, near lots of eateries.

I don't complain much.. What i pay is what i get.. Well, i stayed here many times.. Mostly for a short trip or maybe just for sleep before going to the place that i wanted to go. Anyhow, i can say its a good place where everything is just a walk away. Don't complain much. If you wanted to stay... More

We are a family of 4 and was extremely disappointed with our stay. What we see on the net wasnt what we received. The passage way was filthy, stinking smelly and our rooms had crocoches running all over the kitchen bench at night. We try to get out of it but Expedia was absolutely hopeless. We will never book through... More
