The location of the St. Francis Shangri-La Place, the larger size of studio units (compared to other developments), and the globally-known brand name Shangri-La are one of the many reasons why we invested in this property. The unit is also an end-unit and is situated on a higher floor level, so there is no obstruction to the city view and the view of Antipolo Hills and Laguna Bay. Guests will be glad to know that you do not need a car to roam around the city. The condominium is just steps away from groceries, shopping malls, entertainment, and public transportation abound.
"I always stay in hotels every time I'm in Manila just because I want to have the same amenities back home. The VRBO website made it easy for me to find and book the right condo I need. Payment for the accommodations was really easy via PayPal and the owner really took care of all my needs. The unit was a lot bigger than most hotel suites and have all the amenities you can think of, plus it is connected to a nice shopping mall. Security was top notch and all personnel were friendly and courteous. Location in the Ortigas area is perfect since it is close to lots of great places to dine and shop. I'll definitely rent from this condo at The St Francis Shangri-La Place again on my next visit to Manila." - Jun DV (University Place, WA)
The last few years that we've visited my folks in Manila, we stayed at Sofitel along the bay becuase of the amenities it offers but the drawback is you have to have a car to get to places. We were so glad we decided to lease this Condo. Awesome location and so convenient to shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and most of all the security and amenties were top notch. You can walk from the unit and within few minutes you are right inside the mall. My two young boys (5 and 7) loved the pool and probably used it almost everyday during our stay. My wife and I worked out at the gym and the equipments were well maintained and up to date. They even provided filtered water for you. So cool...It's pretty much the same equipment that you see here in the states and some are even more up to date. The unit itself has a fantastic view of the city. On a clear day, you see the coastal bay from a distance. The owner Ruby made sure that we were taken care of from check in and check out. I would highly recommend this place and foresure our next trip to Manila we will be checking this place out again. Thank you for your hospitality again and Mabuhay.
This place is great!!! it was the best decision I've made to stay here rather than staying at the hotel. The place is clean just like a 5 star hotel, the ammenities is also superb! everything is close to proximity i.e. malls, hospital, transpo etc. The most important is the security, they log everything from visitors, taxi that goes in and out. The owner (Ms. Ruby) is very professional,kind and very accomodating it was a pleasure doing business with her. If you planning to visit the Philippines and stay in manila. I highly recommend this place you can't go wrong....I will definetly rent this place again. Thank you.
This was my second time to stay at the condo in the last 8 months and I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled when I found out the condo was available during my stay in Manila. Compared to the size of other condo units I have seen, this studio unit is quite roomy with an excellent view of the city. Safety has always been an issue for me when travelling to Manila and I feel absolutely safe because of its location. I recently discovered "Watering Hole" restaurant which a friend of mine had been recommending for me to visit for the last couple of years. I did not realize it was part of the Shangrila Mall, except that it is situated on one end of the building. Stay at the condo and not only can you shop all day long, watch a movie at the mall, but you can also listen to some great bands at the Watering Hole at night 4x weekly. It's also a great place for a meal, open 24/7. It is totally safe to walk back to the condo even after the band stops playing at 02:00 a.m. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, this is a great place to stay...conveniently situated, large room, clean, and owners are very accommodating. I am hoping the condo will be available during each of my future visits to the Philippines. Thanks to Ruby and Roderick for their hospitality.
After looking at the pictures of the room, I realized this is the condo I stayed in September 2010 for about a week. I am returning to Manila soon and hoping it is available when I return next month. I highly recommend this condo when vacationing in P.I. Personally, for the price, location, convenience to two great shopping malls (Shangrila Plaza & SM MegaMall), and safety, this condo will always be my 1st choice whenever I go to Manila.
Across the street is Edsa Shangrila Hotel if you want to go enjoy fine dining or their great buffet, but for much lesser price, there are many good restaurants and movie theaters at the Shangrila Mall which is connected to the hotel.
The condo unit is clean and spacious with a nice view of the city.
Ruby and the other staff I dealt with were extremely accomodating, helpful, and flexible in taking care of my needs.
Stayed for a week at this place in May 2010 with my Cebuano girlfriend. An excellent experience all the way around. I've been traveling to asia for ten years now and this is about the best you can get in this range. Arraignments were handled in a competent professional manner which is very refreshing.
Two thumbs up!
We recently got back from our trip to the Philippines. Staying in this luxurious and centrally-located property was just another reason we enjoyed our vacation so much. We used the amenities on the 8th floor: the pool, the sauna and steam bath, and the fitness room, etc. My son enjoyed playing in the spacious and updated Children's Playroom. The staff was polite and I did not feel like my safety would be compromised. The atmosphere and surroundings were very upscale and the furnishings of the building were very much up-to-date and in line with Shangrila property standards. We loved that the building was attached to Shangrila Mall and a very short walking distance to Megamall!
The listing description of the unit was accurate. I enjoyed the pleasant surprise of two shower heads in the bathroom: a traditional and a rainforest shower. I loved how the unit had wireless internet and all the modern appliances that we would be needing for our stay. The view is fantastic!!
The owner, Ruby, and the other caretakers, were very helpful in answering any questions or concerns I had. They answered my concerns promptly.
I have already recommended this property to friends and relatives and will continue to do so! It was a wonderful stay and we will be back next year! Thank you!!
