This apartment on the 21st floor of Le Mirage de Malate, for me was a disappointing experience. Largely because of the very slow, almost unusable Wi-Fi Internet
It is a small and outdated apartment. Although it has a separate bedroom, you can say it’s a studio because the living room is so small.
The facilities are present, but so old-fashioned that they certainly do not meet the standard requirements that an average tourist, especially businessman nowadays needs.
Some things just do not work well, the toilet flushes only half. There is only one air conditioner in the bedroom. Which, incidentally, makes such a noise that the name of the building Le Mirage de Malate be very appropriate (Mirage is the name of the French fighter jets). The living room has a fan.
But the very worst of this apartment is that, although there is a WiFi internet connection, it only has abominably very bad download speed of 0.18 Mbps and an upload speed that could not even be measured with www.speedtest.net, because of its slowness.
You can barely surf at this rate. I could not use my bank account app and was not be able to call my clients with Skype.
I have rebooted the router, but that did no help: it remained an awful affair.
At my own home I might be spoiled with a down speed of 200 Mbps, but with such extremely poorly speed you can’t fob off a well-paying tenant. Really totally wrong cost cut by the landlord.
This makes this apartment for many people utterly useless
The bedroom has an old analog TV set (not flat screen). The bed is so short that it is only suitable for small Filipino dwarves up 5”5’. If you are taller, your legs dangling all night out of bed.
The hot water supply is provided by an electric boiler. It works. The bathroom is acceptable.
The service is good. It is cleaned every 3 days, including the changing of towels and bed linen.
All in all, definitely not recommended. It does not give value for money. I'll never should rent this apartment again.
Stayed at this 1BR fully-furnished apartment for a week in April 2015 (a week ago).
Since I made the inquiry through the site about the interest of this apartment for my stay, Ms Odette was responding promptly giving all the necessary information and clarifications which was a very good host quality response required by all interested customers.
Within a day the booking was confirmed thanks to her quick feedback and since the location suited my holiday perfectly and very reasonable price for an apartment near the Manila Bay.
Even after the booking confirmation it was very easy to communicate and get the apartment address, cost and method of transport from airport etc etc from Ms Odette.
When I arrived her staff was at the lobby to welcome and showed the apartment utilities and key handover.
The apartment was as perfect as the pictures shown in the site and very neat and clean with good hot-water, TV with many channels of choice and free Wi-Fi internet.
All necessary cutlery, crockery, cooking pans, gas cooker, microwave oven etc etc available for our own cooking and a feel of home away from home.
The apartment being in a higher floor, made it very cool and comfortable and peaceful with no noise from the busy highway traffic even though we see it all and Manila Bay from the apartment balcony.
Restaurants, super-markets, transport is just outside the apartment building or few minute walk.
Mall of Asia was just 10 to 15 minutes by taxi, where most of our time was spent shopping, dining, watching movies.
Ms. Odette was coordinating with us even after our check-in and arranged the cleaning of the apartment with her staff and made our 4am check-out an ease by arranging her staff to arrive and check the apartment utilities and do the refund of damage deposit money on-time.
I would recommend this 1BR apartment for any couple or 2pax group as a wonderful, conveniently located, value for money, very clean and comfortable home-away-from-home.
We will definitely stay at this 1BR apartment on our next visits to Manila because we loved the stay.
Nice facility and clean. The host changed linens and towels after day 3 and cleaned up the unit. The pool and pool's view were nice. The unit is priced appropriately and is located less than a 5 minute walk to the zoo. Very interesting bars on the street also. The kitchenette worked out great and the air conditioner was super cooling.
When I first got into the building of Le Mirage, a lady named Annie, welcomed me with a very nice smile and showed me the unit. She was very nice and accomodating. It was already quite cold when I entered the unit, which is a big plus. The unit is well maintained and the design is beautiful. A bottle of red wine wrapped in a gorgeous blue wrapper with a slver ribbon on top of the table caught my attention, it was a welcome wine from the owner, Odette. Thank u so much Odette for the delicious wine. The bathroom's design is modern with a very good water pressure, hot and cold shower. The bedroom is so cozy, I slept like a log during my stay there. Everything was just beautiful. The lady cleaner named Lyn, was also very nice and courteous. I highly recommend this place to balikbayans/travellers alike.
