If you go to the end of N. Escario Street - a quiet avenue in Kamputhaw, Cebu City - you will find a small hotel called the Escario Central Hotel, and your entry into the hotel will be quietly observed by the Official Dog from his security vantage post under a chair. Tariffs at the Hotel are reasonable. The staff... More

Well, I was there last June of 2014 together with my family. At first, I was hesitant to choose this hotel the fact that I haven't heard yet about their services. However, when we got there, I was really amazed how we were being treated by the staff particularly if I'm not mistaken Miss Cristina, coz she was of great... More

Check in at reception is fast and efficient, the free wifi is weak and only available near the lobby area (can sit at the smoking area or the chair and tables on the lawn area). The taxi fare (white metered, not the yellow fixed fare one) from airport 200-300php depending on traffic. Just walk to the domestic terminal across the... More

Coming from Manila on a late night flight, I called to ask for a room where my family of 5 (4 adults and a kid) could spend just a few hours before heading early the next morning to Malapascua. Colette was kind enough to accommodate my request for just a single room with two double beds. The important thing to... More

While I find the place really good for the price point it was offering, I suppose management should do something about the signal for phones and net. On the week that I stayed there, I had to go to the lobby to get internet connection because the room's was so poor. Further, phone signals in the rooms are so iffy... More

We always choose this hotel because of its location which is near the Ayala Mall and food restaurants. Also, we like the ambiance and how they handle guest. Everything we need is here. Front desks are friendly and accommodating. Good job guys!

My friend and I stayed in this hotel last February 2015 for 4D3N. Truly, this is an excellent choice for a budget hotel. Location is great - it won't take you more than 15 minutes via jeepney to reach Ayala Center on the left and Osmena Circle (heart of Cebu City) on the right. Just outside the hotel are diners...

checked in last March 21 for a night stay. Here's my 2 cents: Pros: 1. You get what you pay for. You can't expect too much amenities though, you're only paying P1,500-P1800.. pretty neat and decent for the rates now this time... clean room, hot shower, wifi (you just need to ask / update the user name and pass word...
