Selected deluxe room at PHP800/night. Room is spacious with hot and cold shower, the downsideisthe strength of the water from the showerhead leaves much to be desired. As mentioned by some reviewers here, jeepneys are just a short walk away from the accommdation and plenty of laundry services at reasonable pricing. Local eateries are aplently so not to worry if...

I was very pleased with my week's stay at Robe's Pension house. Keep in mind this is a pension house, which is a Filipino term for an informal budget hotel similar to what Americans would call a hostel or what many Asian countries would consider a guesthouse. So don't expect your room to look like the luxury suite at Radisson... More

Stayed here with a couple of friends last March (but only reviewing now). Because I got to the hotel much earlier than the check-in time, there were still guests in the room that was reserved for me and my friends (they were arriving much later that day). The staff and the guard were kind enough to let me put my... More

My friends had vacation last month in Cebu and Bohol. We stayed at Robes for 2 nights before we went to Bohol. The place was very accessible to public transportation and near to malls and tourist spots. The staff was kind enough to show us directions and what transportation to take. The room was spacious and clean. They don't have... More

This is the very first pension house that has no black coffee. I need black coffee in the morning to wake up. They have only nescafe 3 in 1. Very strange. Also weird is the fact that there is hardly any personnel, only a receptionist and a guard. The guard does everything, including bringing luggage to the rooms and serving... More

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you are really on a tight budget. Cheap yet a good find for our overnight stay. We just had a problem with the hot shower which didn't work during our stay. Front desk staff looks tired when we arrived. But our overall impression with the room is very good-bed, cr, aircon, tables with glasses, phone, tv, are... More

My friends and i stayed here for one week and we were so glad we found a place that is clean and very nice. The staffs are trustworthy. We had an overnight stay in Bohol and we didnt bring all our luggages. We only brought the carry-ons and the luggage stayed at the pension house. We were praying that no... More

I find the Philippines has high prices for their hotels, so I was very interested to see 700 pesos per night for this pension house. I stayed for 3 nights on the 4th floor for 700 pesos per night with cold shower, the room was small and quite basic, but new and clean, It is also located not so far... More
