Serviced apartments have come a long way. It used to be that travelers, businessmen and tourists were limited to hotels and budget inns that usually offer only a place for the night. While there were already serviced apartments before, these were limited and the options are dismal.

Another thing that worries travelers is this, availability of hotel accommodations not only in the main business districts in various cities of Metro Manila but also at new business hubs that have been sprouting in many sections of the metropolis.

Sunshine 100 City Plaza in Pioneer St., Mandaluyong City is trying to answer these concerns. Located in one of the fastest growing BPO hub in the metropolis, Sunshine 100 City Plaza is positioned to cater to businessmen and travelers who need to be nearer these companies.

The building is impressive. It has a modern and contemporary design, clean lines. The location itself is tops with a mall, various corporate offices, nightspots and a burgeoning foodie haven in Kapitolyo in Pasig, all in about a kilometer or less.

One enters into a beautiful lobby that is more akin to a high end condo. It’s not happenstance that this is such a case as Sunshine 100 City Plaza has units both for long and short term lease. There are daily, weekly, monthly and yearly rates. Step into one of the rooms and you will be impressed at the amenities and the views!

I got invited by the company to try out their services and, staying at one of the middle floors of the tall building, I was in awe. I used to stay at a serviced apartment when I was still with my former company but that was a decade ago. It was decrepit with a small floor area with nary a good view of the surroundings.

Here at Sunshine 100 City Plaza? I was spoilt! I stepped into a very spacious room with well designed, tastefully done interiors. It has a queen sized and very comfortable bed near the big windows. Near the entrance is the pantry with a small refrigerator, a microwave oven and other amenities that, will give you food preparation options and convenience. The toilet and bath is also well designed.

At night, the beautiful city lights really come into play and its an attraction in itself. As I was at the Pasig River side, I enjoyed the vista of Guadalupe, the lighted buildings of Rockwell as well as the zooming vehicles along EDSA. Come morning, breakfast is also served.

Beautiful city view at night!

Sunshine 100 City Plaza as a serviced apartment is a good alternative to the usual hotel. It is cozier and has a homier feel. Compared to its sister property, Dian Suites in Makati City, this has a bigger floor space and more luxurious.

Do check this out.
