Rooms ate simply overpriced, considering the lack of simple amenities. The hot shower didn't work. Cable tv was out of order. Wifi was on and off. And I still got charged the full rate for a junior suite.

They offerred special price of a vip room at only 999. The f.o. said it's the new room, but in reality, it's the old unrenovated room. Worst, their air conditioning unit is noisy and keeps on shutting down during the night.

I think this hotel has a really really good location. It is very near restaurants, banks, groceries, etc. The hotel is centrally located and every thing is an arm's reach. It is near CDO's Divisoria and the new mall of Ayala, Centrio. The hotel is old but the rooms have been renovated so it's kinda new in some ways. The... More

I think they have refurbished some of their rooms since the rooms we stayed in doesn't match the photos here or in other hotel websites. The rooms we had were quite clean actually though the bathrooms could be cleaner or re-floored with different tiles. The breakfast could be better though since most were preserved meats. And their juices I think... More

VIP Hotel is a typical hotel in the province- homey, service is not crisp but rather congenial, where the differenceis in the seeming willingness to give service rather than professional image. Rooms are comfortable but not luxurious: basic, having seen better days. While rooms are clean, the lamp by the bed seems not to have benefitted from cleaning for a... More

If you are up for healthy and affordable food, this is the right place. They have a restaurant that serves eat-all-you-can fresh/raw vegetables and fruits which you can mix and match to your taste. They also have soups and fresh fruit juices and shakes from 11am to 2pm. The place is not that elegant but it is clean and simple.

An unexpected early arrival around 9 am and straightaway to be given a room, that is what I call service. The hotel looks not great from the outside, but as soon as you walk in, everything changes for the better. I inspected a few rooms, and especially the newly renovated rooms,, bsiness as well as VIP, are great value for... More

If you like old stuffs, and you don’t mind a dusty Bed, dusty furniture, and dusty lampshades. The Sleep Quality is not here. You can also easily find some small insects. During my 3 Day stay in Cagayan de Oro, I only stayed here for a night instead of 3 nights. I’ll check around Divisoria and found a far more... More

I paid $40 a night and they put me in a room where the only window was in the process of being covered up by anotherbuilding being built two inches away outside my window. The hotel meets Philippino standards but not international standards. The lighting in the room was poor, no hot water in the bathroom in the morning, and... More
