The advantages of this apartment are it’s centrality in metro Pasig, close to everything you need if you have business here. The apartment was very clean, well appointed with a portable cooktop, electric jug, fridge, and thoughtful touches such as slippers at the front door, an umbrella and fast wi-fi. The apartment is small but I imagine they all are at this price, this is only my second ABNB experience and my first in Manila. The only downside was the overwhelming stench of naphthalene (moth balls) which I am told is popular for deterring insects in the Philippines. I have requested that the host try more natural means of deterrence because I almost left due to this powerful chemical smell. I found the old trick of half a dozen onions cut in half helped to absorb the worst of it, and after an 11 day stay the naphthalene was minimally detectable. The television has seen better days but I don’t watch it anyway. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.
