Gramercy Pool / Gym Midnight Closing Time
This sucks, both Gramercy Residence’s pool and gym used to be open 24 hours but now it’s 6am – midnight for the gym, and 6am – 23:30 for the pool.
Since mid March. Someone told me about it at the time but I wanted to go see if they reversed that decision or not and they haven’t.
Part of the pool is cordoned off as well.
Seems everywhere in the Philippines something is broken or under construction.
Another way it’s gone downhill is the recent cockroach problem, I checked into an Airbnb room on the 43rd floor and saw some in the bathroom.
But they’re the small ones you see in Asia not the big ones. Pest control are working on it, last time I stayed here 3 months ago they were going from room to room.
Doesn’t seem to have helped though since then.
I guess this eventually happens to all condos in SE Asia when they get old, it’s because some people cook in their rooms. Just luck of the draw if your neighbours do or not.
Or if you’re close to the rubbish bins or not, each floor has a spot to throw rubbish away.
Aim for as high a floor as possible at the end of the corridors. Gramercy has 71 floors (top floor skybar has closed down a year ago, another piece of bad news).
Saw some hotties in Gramercy gym as always.

I still rate Gramercy as one of my favorite condos in Manila though, the BGC condos like Two Serendra are nicer complexes but the Fort area is too boring for me.
The room is nice, $41/night, this Airbnb owner adds a $10 cleaning fee though too. Now to go find a girl…
Nice river view from 43rd floor.
