I stayed twice in 2012 and on both dates, I occupied what they call the Ruby room - it's a very small room just enough to contain a double bed, a toilet and shower, a small vanity table with no drawer, a small closet, airconditioner, a television with the screen the size of a letter bond paper, and about 1.5 square meters of room to pace. For the price of P1,100 (at a 43 exchange rate, that is roughly US$26), two persons can stay in the room, with breakfast for 2; hence that would be about US$13 each if there's two of you but if you're alone, you still pay US$26 because you pay for the room. I checked in evening and my check out is 12 midnight at the end of my stay - I did a double take and had to clarify midnight or noon - it was midnight.
This is an old apartelle (25 years old according to the guard) and most everything in the room shows its age. The bedcover, the towels, the linens are yellowed with age. They smelled clean, however, and I didn’t get itchy all over (I have very sensitive skin) so based on that, I conclude that the linens are clean. The second time I stayed, in a different Ruby room, the pillow cases were new and pristine white.
The pictures in their website look pretty but the actual look of the rooms is tired.
You can have free Internet (wi-fi) at the restaurant. For a minimal charge, you can have Internet access in your room - PhP200 (US$4.65) for 24 hours and PhP500 (US$11.63) for a one-week unlimited access.
Breakfast is buffet / 'eat all you can' - which boasts of relatively a fair number food choices; but don't expect great taste, they are ordinary at best. For lunch and dinner which are not included in the package, you can likewise order from or eat at the restaurant but the prices of the food are a bit expensive considering the category of the restaurant and the quality of the food.
If you have a car, it's a 5 minute drive to the restaurants lining Tomas Morato, a street perpendicular to the street where Stonehouse is located. If you don't have a car, it's about a 15 minute walk to these restaurants. There are a few convenience stores, laundry, pharmacy, banks, beauty salons, spas, a mini-mall along Tomas Morato but other than those, the street is pretty much a concentration of bars and restaurants from fast food to fine dining. If you want to go to the big malls, it's about a drive or a taxi ride of 20-30 minutes all around. It's about a 5-10 minute drive to St. Luke's Hospital, depending on the traffic.
