Dated hotel but all of the buildings are showing their age in the colon area. Staff are mostly friendly and rooms are mostly clean. Not the best hotel in town but pretty good for downtown/colon. Lots of cheap shopping nearby and the majority of the top sights are in the area.

Ive never been to the Congo in the 60s but id expect my hotel to look like this if I did! The staff were great and there is an upstairs restaurant just 1 min walk away up the street. Mall and pubs just a short taxi ride Ok for the price but general lack of decent accommodation at a decent... More

Stayed here a couple of times in the past as the location is good for us. Always found the Mercedes a bit disappointing so this time we opted for the President Suite with the idea that surely it would be good...Big mistake, if a president ever had to stay there I fear that heads would roll! I see that another... More

First arrived and payed for my first night and the employee at the desk never even offered to give my change. very unfriendly. I told the cab driver to take us to another hotel to start with but he brought us here instead. I am assuming they pay the cab drivers a commission to do this. BEWARE And we got... More

This hotel disappointed me after I returned again. My reservation, made through the services of a third party reservation service was not honoured. Due to the chaos in Cebu following the disruption caused there by Super Typhoon Haiyan, I gave the hotel the benefit of a doubt and stayed anyway in a room which I did not choose. I returned...

We have just left Cebu after a most pleasant weekend stay at the Hotel de Mercedes. We were taking a break from our usual uptown lodgings and opted for a change. H de M was it and a most welcome one it was.It is old, dark and located in an 'interesting' part of the city center, as previous reviewers have... More

We stayed there two nights in July and it was actually ok for the price. Our room had two windows, not all rooms have and the room was what I will call medium sized. It is a very good idea to ask to see the room before accepting it. The location was perfect for exploring Colon Street and the shops... More

I was introduced by a friend who stayed in this hotel when they were in Cebu City. Right now they are living in Canada. Maybe he likes this hotel because his wife's name is also Mercedes lol.
