Staycation at The Gramercy Residences

Most of the time, I spend my rest day travelling outside Manila. I feel like mountains and oceans are always calling me. But last week, I decided to stay in Metro Manila and booked a room at The Gramercy Residences.

One of my travel bucket list is to have a staycation in a high-rise building with an overlooking view of the city. I heard a lot of good things about The Gramercy Residences, also known as The Gramercy Residences at Century City. Some of my friends told me that they had a great stay in this building. So, I decided to look online to find the cheapest room.

With the help of Staycation Suites Philippines, we're able to book an affordable room at one of the grandest condominium in the country. You can contact them via Facebook Page for the fast transaction. We're given a fully furnished room at the 6th floor. Ms. Yale, our contact person gave us a key and access card for the elevator. Every time you press the number at the elevator, you need to tap first the card on the block box, located at the lower part of the numbers. Once you see a red light from the box, you're good to go.

The room is spacious and has around 9-foot ceilings, and glass door and window on its balcony area. It's a fully furnished room equipped with 2 beds, TV with cable channels, couch, closet, glass table and chairs and bathroom with hot and cold shower. The kitchen has wooden cabinet, a refrigerator, a electric range, a microwave, a dishwasher and some kitchenware and dining utensils.

One of the main attractions of the building is its Skypark. It gave us an exceptional panoramas of the city, 36 floor above the ground. The breathtaking view was better at night. The place had multi-level infinity edge pools and a special pool for swimmers and non swimmers who want to practice their swimming drill or exercises. The level of the water is just 4 feet. There's also a gym on the 37th floor which I tried for an hour.
