Overpriced and expensive food and drinks in a very small kitchen!! They even had the nerve to charge me for 2 extra pillows (50 pesos a night).... Even Motel 6 in the States would never do that!! Wi-Fi signal also very weak!! Also charged me for electricity to keep my very small box of food I brought back from a... More

The other reviews are a good summary: decent value, really loud AC, loud street noise depending on where you are, friendly staff. Unlikely someone would be in Dumaguete for more than a night or two and this place will definitely suffice. After exhaustive research, there's nothing in town by way of "boutique" options, so for a good price, this is... More

We were passing by Dumaguete City and needed a place to stay for the night. The hotel itself in the center of the city and is fairly modern. The small rooms were not bad and it afforded a nice restful night of sleep. The staff was friendly and the free breakfast was good.

Small hotel but a good price, good staff, all very polite and accommodating, no coffee making, but you can bring the thermos jug and fill up hot water, or bring your own bottle and they will refill w water. Rooms may be small, without minibar, but good. Hotel is near all you need.. Shopping mall, restaurants , local 24-hr bakery,... More
