Disgusracful. Complete disaster of a hotel. Provided the wrong key to a room, God forbid someone be in the room. Ants crawling everywhere. Noisy, rooms like I imagine a prison cell would be. No apology, no customer care Be warned, stear clear.

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More
