Stayed here for several days thru Airbnb. The entire residential floor has very bad air flow and ventilation, where there is no window along the corridor. While inside the unit, it felt very stuffy, due to sealed loft windows and lack of fresh air.

The outside looks very high -class but inside looks like cheap low-cost flats! Besides, there is no ground facilities, all entrances are located in the basement.

Everything is good except for the fact that the space at the entrance of the parking is a little too tight for its design. It takes effort for some cars to turn at the corners.

Better security now. Owners who have more than 1 car might need to park outside at the roadside.

Share facilities with the hotel, need to walk a distance..

Nice place, facilities well kept.

Exterior well kept despite its age :)

Location ok, unfriendly guard, swimming pool not well maintained.

1. A lot of defects. Submitting them means nothing to the management. They called me once and that's it, no one will come and fix anything.
2. The finishing - wall paint, bathroom tiles, etc are so bad. There's no quality to it.
3. No CCTV and surveillance in critical areas.
4. They were supposed to build an overhead pedestrian bridge. Well good luck trying to cross the 4 lane road in the morning.

A cozy place to live at. High security building. Only the management sucks never repair gym equipment, only take care of bills and money matters. Technicians always busy never arrive to repair anything. Fix everything on your own.

You'll need your access card to EXIT the building! The emergency button to open the door from the inside doesn't work. This means that in an emergency, if you forget to bring along your access card, you'll DIE in the building!

The lights on the buttons to summon the elevator doesn't work. This means that when you press the button to summon the lift, you'll never know if it's coming / working or not.

Very convinient, bus stand in front of apartment. To LRT & MRT. But facility management should improve.

Used to be many Christian Families here. But since 2016, it started to have many TOC Automotive College students. It has make here a students hostel. They make noises by the swimming pool at night, caused my young kid can't sleep early.

Besides, every month got water piping problems leads to no water supply. Yes, it is on monthly basis!!

This is a quiet comfortable building for young families, couples, retired. There are a variety of sized units to suit even singles.
The small but clean gym and pool are suitable for regular exercise.
Close to the local mall, but far enough away to give peace and quiet.

Management very responsive to residents' feedback. Public transport includes the PJ03 (one of the PJ free bus) and a shuttle bus to the Kelana Jaya LRT station. Very convenient place with basic amenities like bank, food, grocery and so on within walking distance.

Nice neighbours, amazing garden and facilities. There are many equipments to use in the gym. Amazing view at night, plus it's quiet at night. It's also located in SS2 area - at a housing area which makes the road around it less busy (and so quieter) but also within 15 minutes drive to shopping malls (Tropicana mall, One utama, mid valley, paradigm..).

The only thing they seriously need to improve on is the elevator at Block E. It keeps on needing maintenance every few days and the sensor of the elevator door is not good, the door will close even when you're about to get out of the elevator, until it touches you.

It’s a modern living area with sense of harmony with the built environment. The community seems to enjoy the blend of arts, open space and other needs. The downside is the pick up and drop off point wasn’t ideal for Grab or MyCar driver because Waze always show the routes differently. Passenger have to manually instruct them to access through the access road next to the temple and take a picture of it.

Balinese style residence with a true resort style surrounding and landscaping. Despite the occasional morning traffic, it's still a nice serene place to live

The houses have nice design. Double story concept in apartment type of house.
Entrance road is very narrow and many cars park at the roadside

Strict security, which is good. Easy access to park opposite the condo. Good and clean dumpsite. Friendly neighbours and clean common areas. Wheelchair accessible but lift is slightly small. Rather quiet for a condo but nice view facing the park

Strict security, generally safe, but a lot of students and foreigners. That being said, the facilities are well-maintained and JMB is responsible. Just opposite Segi college, and near MRT, about 10 mins walk.

Typical place for students, feels like one big dormitory. Totally not a place for families.

Moderately safe, just very drab in decor and interior. And when the electricity goes for some failure or any reason in the middle of the night, the tenants, for some ungodly reason, start screaming and yelling. Really sets the mood for a Purge scene, or even a zombie outbreak. 5/7

Viewed my apartment today. Finishings were terrible. Gaps everywhere between walls n floorings. Nearly all door handles and hinges were rusting. Walls and doors were chipped. Glass window cracked n window panes loose.
Two aircons not working properly and the water heaters not working at all. Very disappointed.

Good location, good size units, 3 car parks. Finishing sucks but at least most rectified.

Not space efficiently designed making it lack privacy n space.
Jammed everyday along jalan universiti.
Lots of foreigners n homestay units, rowdy when their guests come over.

Stayed here for one year. Quiet good place. Only problem is you dont have restaurants nearby.

Quiet area in the midst of busy PJ. Located at strategic area in PJ. MRT Station in walking distance. Accessible to work and from work. A popular condominium for students and working adults.

I wouldn’t give any stars for this place and we have lived here for two years! Poor fittings, place is infested with Airbnb, poor security, leaking and mold are common occurrences because of poor workmanship and equally maintenance support, unbelievably lazy and incompetent MO supervisor, very rude guards (security companies change every 3 months), letters and packages will go missing unless you scour the desk yourself because concierge guard can’t speak BM, English, Cantonese, Tamil and Mandarin. Better luck if you speak Myanmarese or Nepali. Never again. Don’t waste your money here for own stay.

Stayed here for some time. Great facilities with The Club attached to the residence. Newly added edible garden and badminton court freshly painted. The coffee corner is newly added.

Not easy to get this kind of condo anymore below RM1m. Semi detached house design for all units, low density, 2 parking lots per unit, extra parking with EV charging for rent added, new MRT station at Sunway Nexis approx 1km away at Sunway Giza, Tropicana Golf Club, Thompson's Private Hospital, St Joseph's International School, IKEA and IKANO 5 mins by car, lots of greenery and very well maintained with security regularly patrolling parking and stairs even inside the building at night. Mostly families and feels like home.

Nice condo environment, nice pool also very friendly neighbourhood area..

Super easy accessible to almost every where. Mrt2 is the great highlight. Nice landscape. Cozy environment. Traffic is not bad at all and in fact is the best access to home in Damansara Damai.

Im staying at Sphere Damansara for almost a year now. The apartment unit size is so big and wide, enough for 8 people to stay together, I mean if you have a big family. Every morning and afternoon there are a lot of food stalls will open, but no worries, Mamak restaurant open for 24 hours. Every Tuesday, from 6 p.m to 10 p.m, there will be a night market. Most of the shops are nearby here only, like mini supermarket, Mac D, KFC, 99 speed mart, pizza hut, laundry and etc.

Beautiful place, good neighbourhood, spacious land area and so many facilities for everyone to enjoy.

Block E- A 28 story building that's almost full. Residents are mostly workers. Although overlooking a nice view and cleaned daily, the building is run down and maintenance is almost non-existent. Only two of the four elevators are in operation and are usually very full during rush hours. An extra elevator is also available, but used for service and stops at every second level.
There is a security gate for cars, and a few grocery and local restaurants at the street level.
Summary : it's not a place to be unless necessary.

Overall, recommended to own for own-staying. Great location and
awesome environment to live, great view to oversee the KL view at affordable price range. Its value is definitely worth equivalent to those in DPC if not more than. The only downside is the developer workmanship quality but that can be improved down the road with the right joint committee group.

Low dense family oriented neighbourhood. Equipped with playgrounds, swimming pool, gym, badminton c court and even a convenient store. Block D only concern is facing a highway.

A peaceful life at home....a happening life at ground floor shops....a serene life by the window overlooking lush green golf course....a pampered life at 3A floor of amenities....

One of a kind design in PJ.
Beautiful place, full of greeneries, peaceful and perfect environment for families with young children. Ample facilities, and nice jogging track. Tight security.
But Could use a little paint touch up at the lift areas.
