Great location for a budget hotel if you are going to Cebu for your CFO seminar because its just a few blocks from the CFO Office and walking distance from Pier 1. The hotel is also very very near the Sto. Nino Church and Magellan's cross, La Nueva Supermarket is just 2 blocks away if you have to buy some... More

The hotel is walking distance from the Magellan's Cross, and several other tourist sports. It is also accessible to supermarkets, transportation and restaurants. The room is clean and comfortable. The view is a bit boring and many people are outside but it's fine. The staff are also nice.

Thank you for your comments. We regret to hear about your friend's sad experience but I don't think that that incident did not happen inside the hotel.

I was at first a little confused with the choice of a hotel considering that I hadn't been to Cebu before. However, Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia was nothing short of a perfect choice! It is ideally located literally in the middle of EVERYTHING! It is barely a stone's throw from the Historical and spiritual area that is Basilica del Santo... More

Good for staying the night while touring the city as it's right in the center of Cebu. We paid only P1300 for three persons, that's an aircon room with cable TV (bad reception -- we didn't bother watching). As long as the room and the toilet/shower area is clean, I am happy. They arranged for a transfer to the port... More
