This studio apartment is located on the 18th floor of the Mabolo Garden Flats building, a relatively upscale residence near Ayala Center. The best feature is the great view westward, encompassing the western part of the city, the Waterfront Hotel and the more distant mountains. The studio itself is very airy and well-lit with natural light. The bed is comfortable and the air conditioning works well. Big limitation is that there is no bathroom sink at all, just the kitchen sink and a faucet near the floor of the shower, draining directly into the floor. The kitchen has no stove, just a hot plate and a microwave and is very poorly equipped with hardly enough dishes for two, very few cooking utensils and no pantry items, so cooking is a bit of a joke. The management is also skimpy with towels and providing a change of bed linens on site. There were some problems in trying to extend my stay but things were finally worked out at the last minute. The landlord does not live in Cebu so emergency situations cannot readily be taken care of.
