I stayed here on March 14, 2017 and was very happy, yes, but I had to delete that review as my second stay on March 18, 2017 was a COMPLETE opposite. At the reception, I was told they only had twin beds available. Ok, fine, I was alone anyway. What was I not told is that the double lock was...

My goal in Cebu was to have my PRC ID renewed, and I would be arriving in the city past 10pm prior to the day I go there. This hotel was convenient in two ways - it's only a walking distance from PRC and they had a walk-in rate of Php550 as long as you check out by 6am. This...

I got what we paid for. Basic room with basic amenities. Wifi does not reach the rooms. Doors not locking properly. Shower room is a bit old. We stayed on their family room and had an extra bed (folding bed). Could hear clearly the noise on the street. Refrigerator not working well and old. Complimentary breakfast is okay though.

Affordable rates and good location for my purpose. However, the bathroom is too small. The lavatory is right beside the door. You have to turn 180 degrees to be able to reach the toilet paper holder. No partition from the shower to the toilet. The whole bathroom becomes wet when you shower. The excuse of the front desk is "the...

Just checked on a few hours ago and everything seemed good until I pulled down the blanket on my bed. I noticed that only the mattress had a sheet covering it. No other sheet on the bed. I called the front desk and the lady who answered said that I would have to pay $2.00 extra per day to have...

Good for a budget hotel. The desk personnel were accommodating and rooms were generally clean. If you are looking for a place just to rest after a long day of touring or shopping (walking distance between two large malls), the hotel is ideal for you. It is not a fancy hotel but a pleasant one.
