Stayed for 9 days with 22- & 19 yr-old children. Great security in the building. Very accessible to the LRT2 line since the South entrance of the Gilmore Station is right next to the lobby doors of the condo. The entrance is right along Aurora Blvd. on the southwest corner of Gilmore Ave. (the street that leads straight to the Greenhills Shopping Area).
Very easy to pick-up the key to the unit since we were met at the lobby and brought up to the unit on the 27th floor. The view of Quezon City was breathtaking from the 27th Floor and even from the 8th Floor swimming pool area (access to very clean 25-m swimming pool included with rental). We swam at night since there were very few to no people there at that time not to mention that it was cooler/ more breezy and with a great view over the city lights.
The studio/bachelor unit was very clean, complete with kitchen utensils, fridge, 2-burner induction stove and microwave. Cleaning supllies and tools were provided and garbage pick-up was 2x a day. Truly very convenient for travellers who would like to be able to cook their own meals to save $$. Cable TV and free WIFI (signal was strong) were pluses. I had to request bed linens (for the futton bed), pillow & towel for the 3rd person in advance since I saw provisions for 2 people only in the pictures although it was advertised that the unit can accomodate 3 persons max. Very near the Quezon City & Greeenhills areas but can take a while to get to Makati Business District and Manila Historical areas with the traffic situation.
Price was very affordable due to the included amenities and location is great.
CONS (only 2): the very clean bathroom had a musty smell even when the exhaust automatically turned on when the light is on. We solved this by keeping the bathroom door open when not in use to air it. The other one is the presence of some small insects when we close the lights and blinds when we go out. Easily solved by swatting them; they disappear anyway when the lights and aircon/fan are turned on. Very good value for the price.
