We stayed during Easter week and had an enjoyable holiday in Manila, made better by this new, safe apartment. The reception area staff were helpful, communication with the owner was quick and professional and the description of the apartment was accurate. The Gramercy is a great building which features a cinema, gym, a fantastic pool and great location. The rental price was reasonable and the transaction was faultless. Note that taxi drivers weren't clear where the Gramercy was, so mention the nearby St Giles Hotel as a reference point. Wifi wasn't available generally, but sometimes you can connect to the shopping centre next door.
Note well that Manila isn't really tourist friendly so do your research beforehand - print maps - you'll need them in the taxis, and stand your ground with the taxi drivers WRT meter use, and be aware that they'll drive you around if you appear not to know where you're headed. more
