We recently made a trip to Metro Manila. We stayed for five nights at the cozy and comfortable Stone House Hotel Pasay. Only three kilometers from the SM Mall of Asia, Stone House, doesn’t offer five-star accommodations. But it does give the budget-conscious traveler great budget options for staying in Manila.
The total cost of our five night stay was 6,696 pesos, 140 US Dollars, approximately 1,339 php a night, $28, for my wife and I.
Though our room could barely squeeze in a queen-sized bed, it did have a private Comfort Room, CR, flat screen television and good air con. What more could you want?
We spent most of the day anyway traveling to various shopping centers such as MOA, Mall of Asia, and SM City North EDSA.
MRT AND MCDONALD’S NEAR OUR LOCATION
Stone House Hotel, comfortable and cozy, also has a MRT, Metro Manila Rail Transit System, and McDonald’s nearby. We used taxi cabs the majority of the time and had no problems flagging them down.
Because we didn’t want to pay for a cab, we used the MRT to hang out at the SM City North Edsa Mall one Saturday
FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF
One of the positives of our stay at the Stone House Hotel Pasay, aside from the price, was the staff. Friendly and helpful, they answered any questions we had with a smile.
Grace at the front desk confirmed our reservation with Booking.com without any problem.
We always pay in cash. Because we do not have any credit cards, Booking.com lets you make reservations with hotels that do not require any credit cards.
The housekeeping staff asked us every day if we wanted our room clean and always inquired if we had enough clean towels. I have nothing but praise for the entire staff at Stone House Hotel Pasay.
The Room Service and Cafe staff were always friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend the Stone House Hotel Pasay as a comfortable and cozy place to stay at a great value. Though we overlooked a busy street, the traffic noise did not disturb us during the night. High-speed free Wi-Fi (ignore what the front desk sign says about paying for the Internet) was another big plus.
