Every single website on this place says the entrance fee is 50 Php per person, but they charged 100 per person in our group. They insisted "iT wAs ChAnGeD iN SePtEmBeR lolol" but failed to produce any source - even on their own website, that they themselves directed us to - that mentioned this price change. Then they said "Oh bUt iT wAs aNNouNcEd oN FaCeBoOk" which, after checking out their Facebook, also wasn't true, and again they failed to produce proof that the price was raised to 100 per person.

Foreigners beware, these guys are shady as hell and don't even know how to scam properly

There are animals (e.g. monkey & birds and other ones) chained and treated badly. They look so sad and it is heartbreaking to watch them being there. We regret that we paid entrance fees and therefore supported this as we were not aware of this. The house itself is not too bad but there is really no need for the animals there! Please stop it

This trip was actually a back-up plan because the neighboring museum was closed for renovation. We were so glad we did this. Not only the tour guide was knowledgeable enough but he was also a good choreographer/photographer for our group. He took the time to explain the history of the place and not only that, he shared his talent for photography! The pictures were wonderful! Highly recommend it.

One of the gems of Cebu. Allot 1 to 2.5 hours (1 hour - shortened version) and ask for a Guide. You will learn valuable information and will have lots of laughs, especially with Ariel. Make sure to tip the guide. A 500 or more tip for Guide Ariel is well-deserved.

I really enjoyed a stroll around this house looking at all of the antiques. The staff is friendly and the furniture was lovely. It really does take you back in time. It is only 50 Pesos, so great value for money too. To note, I've seen some reviews from people complaining about the hot and stuffy interior and people should accept that this is the Philippines and there is no aircon inside the venue, so it is very hot and humid inside, as is to be expected.

Think Haw Par Villa rather than National Trust . Costumed room guides and overly packed spaces gave a less than convincing experience of colonial Cebu life. Might keep youngsters more engaged but rather oversold as a city highlite

The ground floor reeked of urine. They had 2 toilets for public use but they stunk and it wafted all though the house. Upstairs was just a collection of crockery and furniture. The displays exhibited no historical significance. Much lace to do about nothing. If you bother to go in that is what you will see, lace adorning the tables, the window frames and the door arches. This is once you dodge the street hawkers that will not accept no for an answer. Not a place that is worth a stop.

Wasn’t expecting much but I have to admit it was fascinating to see such an old house and being able to walk around and they even allow you to sit on furniture and touch some artifacts. Just be respectful as it’s old. The upstairs was cool and the bedroom is there where apparently the owners stay on weekends. An old man was playing an old Harp and beautiful song, Fools Rush In by Elvis.

The house structure is amazing enough but to add to that the house is jam packed with various collectables no doubt gathered by the family over a considerable period of time. The house is still used by the family, apparently. I think it is worth the admission price.

The house is beautiful but the receptionist is so rude. We paid 50 pesos eac but didnt get a tour guide at all. He jusy have us a 5-min briefing. I guess we look young so he thinks we dont have money. He just didnt tour us around while he led others upstairs and stuff. Horrible staffs!!! Bad attitude!!!
