First, the positives....the unit is provided with a decent amount of items useful for an extended stay (kitchenware, water dispenser, washer machine), TV//DVD, wifi (about 4mbps) and ample towels. The Jazz Residences themselves turned out to exceed my expectations. Huge pool , well-kitted gym and ease of access to food/groceries makes the Jazz an optimal location. Also, the on-site person is responsive and helpful.
Unfortunately, for this Host (and my Stay overall), the cons far outweigh the positives. In my search for an appropriate Listing, it was imperative that it included a reliable internet/wifi connection for my ability to work remotely (which, sadly, in the Philippines, still lags behind the rest of the world for broadband). As such, I asked *explicitly* (and multiple times) about the internet *prior* to booking and was told it was 4mbps with no data limit. This turned out not to be true as once the undisclosed data limit was reached, speed dropped by more than half. This happened about 22 days into my 35 day Stay. When I wrote the Host about this, I was lied to about it being a "local service issue" (that was the first lie, than more followed). Only after much back/forth did the Host finally disclose the terms of the contract. In addition, the Host (actually, it is a local contact serving as an intermediary) was very rude, putting the blame on my "unreasonable expectations." This is especially frustrating as the Listing is marketed towards "business men." I am a Host myself and would never lie to a Guest, nor mislead them in any way. This was very disappointing and this type of behaviour unacceptable and ought not be tolerated within the airbnb community.
Another disappointment was despite the cleaning charge, no mid-Stay cleaning is offered. This is pretty standard for long-term Stays, in my extensive experience using airbnb.
Overall, being lied to about something crucial to my work was terribly disappointing and a first in all my years using airbnb. It cannot be tolerated and, as such, I cannot recommend this Listing nor any of the others offered by this Host. This may be an acceptable Listing for those doing a short stay, but definitely NOT for a long-term Stay. There are ample better choices within Jazz Residences. Best to pass on this one.
