I am here for more then 2 months and I must say that it's becoming a nightmare to stay in this hotel. Most of the time the hot water doesn't work (sometimes it happens 3 times a week) specially in the evening when you really feel that you want to take a hot shower. Even when the water it's warm...

We stayed there for 3 days and the experience is a total disaster. AMBIANCE. The lobby is just fine. It's average. They gave us room 1 at the ground floor. I was really expecting a very relaxing place. But when we opened the lights, tadah! It not what I was expecting. The room is unclean. I thought maybe someone just... More

it sounds to good to be true, Wifi, warm water and aircon. for 750P, in the end only the aircon works. We had mice in our room and had to remove more than 10 big cockroaches, after that we had to spray our room with cockroache killer spray. The lady behind the desk had just finished her second painting and... More

This pension house is cheaper compared to others in that area. The rooms are very simple. But one thing I like in this place is its central location - near to church, banks, restos, bars, spas, malls, bookstore, hospital, etc. It is also accessible to all destinations in the city. It has also a free wi-fi. Though the bathroom is... More

I stayed at this pension house for 2 months as I needed a place to come home to while I attended summer classes. The pension house suited my basic needs. No apartment rentals can beat the rates. C'est La Vie Pension gave me a full week's discount (almost P5,000) for paying them in advance for the month! SERVICE. I can't... More

We had problems finding decent accommodation in Cebu City, we stayed at this place first for two nights before changing hotels (the staff did change our room at this hotel but it was no better). The A/C worked, and there was hot water, but it was so noisy at night from all the karaoke bars nearby that we couldn't sleep.... More
