I was in Cebu for a single night. Like what a reviewer mentioned, it does have a sad, gloomy atmosphere to it and all the other issues with it. Although I didn't stay when there was a nearby construction site, I still thought the aircon was loud as heck. But I still had a good sleep nonetheless. Poor locking system... More

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

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
