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... More

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

The room and bed are clean, but then again everything is very old. Location is good if you like it downtown ... The... 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. Anyway I always stay here, every year when I spend my vacation in the Philippines. One time I spend one month here and... More

I stayed at the Hotel De Mercedes in October 2012. This hotel is in the heart of the old part of Cebu City and is starting to show its age! The entrance Lobby is functional and was probably at the cutting edge 20 years ago, but its facilities are in slow decline. Yes, I did see one of the staff... More

Cheap, and worth every peso you should have spent somewhere else. There is nothing to distinguish this hotel other than price. If you can afford more, stay in another hotel. My wife and kids stayed there because we didn't plan ahead and find another place. The sheets had been cleaned but the overall condition was very poor. The garlic fried... More

First time I ever stayed here will be the last time, the rooms are old and it smells of mould. The carpets need to be vacuumed and they need pest control to kill the dust mites and rodents that lurk around. During the day you will see the usual sights of Colon Street, people everywhere and many beggars, kids, adults... More
