Been before and knew what to expect which is a traditional hotel in a great setting attached to a well presented garden. We had an amazing 2 night bed and breakfast. Yes it was a small twin room on the 2nd floor, but this was clean and well-presented and totally adequate. From our previous visits there are bigger & better... More

I've heard about Montebello on the radio but I didn't expect it was just a couple of steps behind Gaisano Country Mall, which makes this a convenient place. There's no ambient noise from the highway, though. The view and architecture is nice. It's like staying in a villa somewhere in Europe. Bed is comfortable. Bathroom is spacious enough. Took a...

We checked into the room a little before 10:00 PM. The bell man carried our luggage into the room and went to the window and opened the curtain and did something to the window. He turned on the air conditioner and left the room. Sometime between 01:45 and 04:00 AM someone came into to the room through the window while... More

It is like a big villa, and you are a visitor. No elevators needed to go to our room, just the plain old fashioned stairs. There is a garden and a swimming pool that lent it some kind of homey feeling. It is even a bit old, but I still love it. The bathroom in our room was very nice,... More

I frequent the hotel for business trips. It may not be as modern compared to the new hotels in Cebu but it suites me. It has a big garden area and a lap pool.
