The location of the hotel is very good, if you like staying in Malate, which is the liveliest part of Manila, two steps from the Bay, with plenty of shops, restaurants, bars, and located right on top of the Robisons mall, the largest in Malate.

It is kind of a serviced apartment, not a hotel. The way it works is that a group of Egyptians own or rent a number of apartments in the tower, hire some cleaners and an office lady and then rent the rooms on a daily basis. The elevators are slow and there is a lot of traffic. The rooms are nicely renovated and very spacious, but service is not too good. The first day no one came no clean the room nor even change the towels.

There is a swimming pool in the 6th floor, but it only has 3 lounge chairs, so there is pretty much no place to lay down.

Apart from that, the price is not too expensive and the value for money is adequate.

OCTOBER 2012
DON'T STAY. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!
JMM Apartments Didn't honour our booking - gave room away.
After arriving from a flight from Melbourne to Manila the JMM apartments driver didn't arrive and upon arrival to the apartments and awaitinga further 1/2 hour we are advised that they have given our room away. The room was booked on booking.com. Our arrival was also confirmed via email the day before with the manager.
Incompetent security and staff attempted to shift us across the road to a 3 star sister hotel. We rejected the offer (it's now 1:00am) and stayed at the MIDAS which was wonderful. Nice room, pleasant staff.
Booking.com followed up our complaint and JMM manager provided incorrect / misleading info saying that we arrived with 9 guests and they couldn' accommodate - FACT= there was 2 of us!
Enough said - TERRIBLE, DON'T STAY!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay at JMM apartments. - Alternatively stay at the MIDAS hotel was wonderful!

I had to wait to check in as the 36 apartments (which are on the 28th to 30th floors of this well located Tower 1 Robinsons complex next to Robinsons Place Mall in Ermita) were full. Apparently the Saudi Arabian owner has nine cleaning staff but it is insufficient, although some guests stay for a few nights.

To get up into the apartment area, one has to wait until a staff member comes down: this took 10 minutes. There is a room on the 28th floor that is used for checkin.

There is an inadequate four lifts: at times I was waiting three or four minutes.

The apartment had a lovely parquetry floor. The kitchen was quite a reasonable size: utensils and some crockery as well as a few items of cooking equipment (which I did not use) were supplied. The range is gas, while there was a good size modern refrigerator.

The kitchen bench (Ceasar stone or similar) was covered with a hard plastic above it (gap of some millimetres). Above it were cupboards: a great way to bump one's head.

The lounge room was small but had a modern plasma TV, along with two transverse extremly cheap pine sofas (more like bench seats) with horrible vinyl. There was a large pillar near the room's entrance which had to be squeezed past: a second hazard.

The bedroom had a comfortable bed and a small table with two chairs. The curtains were cheap.

The bathroom had an adequate shower but no toilet roll holder! Water was little more than tepid.

Upon checkout at 0700 on a Sunday morning, the door to the checkin room was open but noone was to be seen. From the ground floor lobby, security called up with a very grumpy Filipina appearing to give me back my P1000 security deposit: no thanks, no smile.

Overall at P2800 through www.booking.com this was reasonable vaklue but I prefer an hotel room. The JMM individual apartments are each furnished differently. Despite asking, I had a view of Robinsons Place Mall's cooloing toweers not one of Manila Bay.

The owner needs to train his staff to be courteous: one wasn't (the others were pleasant). Signs in Arabic are also offputting to the many Western guests.The noise from an adjacent karaoke bar until perhaps 0100 was also very offputting, 30 floors uop, although this is no fault of JMM.

Positive:
> wooden floor (not shined, though)
> with DVD player
> with coffee table
> big fridge
> nice view ( Manila Bay)
> fast check-in
> helpful guards outside the building
> tight security as there were many guards guarding not only the apartment but the whole tower
> good internet (wifi) connection (internet router inside the room - room 21-K)
> with electric fan (for those who don't like the aircon)
> with a safety deposit box (but very small, the smallest I've seen)
> good service
> very good location. The mall is just in the same building! And the supermarket a stone's throw away.
> close to the airport. I only paid Php135 by taxi (meter) to get there. It took me 22 minutes with the traffic.
> pool was ok

Negative:
- no working table (dining table functioned as a working table during my stay)
- smallest gym I have ever been. For the 3 towers sharing all that, I think that just need to stretchhhh. I couldn't even stretch my hand so confidently as I was afraid to hit someone. There were very few exercise equipment and some of them were out of order. With the so many people exercising, your personal space would surely be taken. Also, the gym smelled so foul-smelling of sweat and perspiration of the people inside which was very disgusting. I always love to go to the gym and that's one reason why I had chosen this apartment but after that experience, I never came back to work out.
- no sofa as advertized in Booking.com. They only have 2 sofa chairs in my room.
- verrry small TV
- no good cable channel selection
- stuck-up sink
- water pressure and heater were very poor
- noisy aircon even when set to "quiet cool'
- the staff addressed me during check-in so casually. But as the days passed by there was a change.
- no telephone. I had to send the staff an sms for my requests to be met/answered. They answer text messages quickly though, most of the time.
- everytime I pay, the staff had to get inside my room to make the receipt which a bit was uncomfortable.
- dusty closet
- amateur housekeeping staff.
- no rice cooker
- old kitchen utensils. knives so dull. stove takes forever to cook the food.
- staff still needs a big room for improvement. They forget things like giving me the internet security key and the room key. Anyhow, they apologized for that and immediately acted upon my request/complaint.
- thin mattress
- SLOWEST check out. I had to wait for 20 minutes for the staff to go gown even after advising her through sms ahead of time. As a consequence, I almost missed my flight! Such a very stressful morning I can remember. Everything was ready except that I had to wait for the staff to refund me my deposit and do the check out stuff. The good service they did was all spoiled because of that and I think that's something for me to consider whether to stay there again or not. I miss so much the very good service of Jupiter Suites!

* If you don't like to be awakened from your sleep in the morning, put a do not disturb sign. The housekeeping staff woke me up at 9:30am and rang the very loud doorbell 3 times.

* Maybe using the gym earlier would spare you from the crowd and the smell. Before students come, hit the gym.

* Just mention to the driver that you are going to Robinson's Place Tower 1 in Malate as that's famous. The taxi driver toured me around. I don't know if it was on purpose or what but with me giving him the apartment name and the address was enough reason for him to do so. And when you're in Tower 1, just ask the front desk for JMM Suites staff.
