Full Review: Siglo Suites at The Acqua Private Residences, Mandaluyong

For starters, this mega-structure is located less than 10km from Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and less than 3km away from the nearest MRT Station (Boni). Accessible to all modes of transportation, The Acqua Private Residences rises at a point where two cities meet – Makati & Mandaluyong.

This is my first staycation in a leased unit, and I’m excited to share with you all how it feels and looks like inside (and outside) The Acqua Private Residences – in partnership with Siglo Suites.

As soon as you make your way to the entrance of the property, head over to the Siglo Suites Front Desk/Lobby at SUTHERLAND Tower. As soon as you make your first right from the entrance, you’ll immediately see this tower to your right.

This is how Sutherland Tower/Siglo Suites’ lobby looks like – Modest and comfortable. After getting your room key, it may happen that your room is not located in Sutherland Tower because Siglo Suites operates on all four (4) working towers at Acqua Private Residences. Which was actually my case. I was given a room at Livingstone Tower, just a few meters away to the right of Sutherland.

Your eyes are not fooling you. Yes, you just saw a ceiling-to-floor lit decor, that’s directly at the entrance of Livingstone Tower. The lobby was full of colors from red, to orange, to gold, to black, and yellow. And like Sutherland Tower, this one also has industrial scent diffuser, which makes the lobby a little fragrant – that to me was very soothing and calming.

My room was on the 41st floor, and I already expected to at least have an awesome view of the metro skyline – and I wasn’t disappointed at all! But first, let me show you around my room, where I spent two nights in:

The Bathroom is also fitted with quality amenities, and water pressure was very good. I just wished the toilet was accompanied by a bidet for more comfort and convenience. Also, the lighting of the room could be improved. The AC unit cooled the room just fine, I didn’t need to adjust the temperature because it was so hot outside, I just set it to the coolest setting.

As for the view from my room:
