I've been staying here whenever I visit Cebu, for over 10 years and I've accepted the faults of this ailing old hotel up to now but the service has recently declined somewhat. Room service is not too bad, front desk is friendly but the restaurant is poor. The manager (Larry) who just a few months ago was very friendly, recently...

I stopped here with my wife and son, friendly staff, nice little cafe/bar through reception but Breakfast not to my liking although it's free, avoid that sausage thing they call hot dog, it looks like a rude object and taste like c**p. when you check in pray you don't get the middle rooms, very noisy and no Windows to look...

To sum it up our whole 3 nights stay in this hotel is not that bad and is located in in center of cebu city. The toilet needs to be cleaned up all the time. Looks like an old hotel. The staff is accomodating.

Beside the hotel are Fast Food Like Orange Brutus, Mcdonalds, Chowking, Convenience Stores, Money Changers, Travel Agencies, Banks, a Robinsons Mall. Nearby are Restaurants and a kilometer away is the Basilica and other tourist attractions. The area is littered with beggars though and some...

Windows (impossible to completely seal) to an non-carpet hallway and a large percentage of locals who do not respect silence make it very difficult to have a peaceful stay. People walk through the hallways at all time of the day or night talking loudly put every ear piercing decibel straight into your bed as you try to sleep. Front desk...

Its funny experience there, its location is 98% good because its home to center of night life (mango avenue),24/7 restaurant and a mall, but the service is nose bleeding, maybe cos i paid for avoidable room, elevator stop working when the cafe groundfloor is closed around 12pm and i had to use the stairs climbing to 3rd floor or so,...

Always stay at this hotel when in Cebu City due to its clean economy accommodation, friendly and helpful management and staff, central location right across from Robertson Mall and walking distance to Mango Square night life. Those who love a sing with live musicians can join like minded "pseudo" professionals in the hotel's piano sing a long bar or neighbouring...

We stayed here for one night before traveling down to oslob- the hotel was clean and basic and ok. It is quite noisy if busy as you can hear ppl talking in the corridors. Bed still clean and comfy. We were satisfied. It was easy for us to find our way around in the nearby area and found a good...

This hotell has a funny entrance thrue a cafe which also serve as a pay for breakfast place. The location to downtown is ok but not much there to see. We got the junior suite with lookout on a dead grass circle roundabout and the room was big and pretty decent but still not a three star. The price of...
