Good: Clean enough rooms, mostly helpful staff, centrally located, modestly priced. Fridge outside where you can buy a beer for 80 pesos. Not so good: No breakfast, although Jolibees are nearby. No lifts, if you are over 6 ft tall be very careful, you might bang your head coming down the stairs (like I did, and the staff member blamed... More

The twin room was spartan but relatively clean. Don't expect a window in all the rooms. Air-conditioning came from a split type unit that was a bit too noisy for comfort. The bathroom has an inconvenient design where the shower is in front of the toilet. So everything gets wet when you take a shower. But the water pressure is... More

Clean, centrally located, reasonably priced - its not the Ritz but what do you expect? Aircon worked fine, sheets were clean, only complaint was that the bathroom was the annoying type where there is no separate shower so the whole thing gets soaked when you use the shower. But other than that a reasonable choice for Catbalogan PS No breakfast... More

I can't believe someone said the staff was a anything but fantastic and super friendly. I guess there is no pleasing some people. I loved my stay there. The staff was awesome and the rooms were clean and the A/C worked great. When I come back to Catbalogan I will definitely stay there again.

Rolet Hotel in Catbalogan City was a pleasant experience for my family after a very long flight from New York City. The hotel certainly isn't like NYC's 5-star hotels but It was clean, reasonably priced and its central location in the city was perfect for our needs. The staff was very helpful and surely hospitable (I believe this latter trait... More
