Location would be the biggest mitigating factor for this hotel. Sans Rival is a few steps away as well as the Boulevard. Room is really spacious even considering we were four in our room assignment. This was our first stop and we barely stayed in the room. Sleep quality was ok but no wow factor. Furniture / cabinet was really... More

Room ok, dark and for a city hotel very silent, room rate with 1300 P without breakfast at the upper limit, staff friendly and helpful - but there are also two down-sides: At first there is a "back to school promo" for 550 Peso - but checking for that at the reception revealed that it is only for 4 hours...

perfect location. in the middle of the dumaguete's restaurants and stores. a block away from the famous boulevard where, where you can find other restaurants too. no need to worry to go anywhere within the city if you're staying in hotel nicanor because it's right in the heart of dumaguete….. perfect location indeed! price is just right for the pocket!

The Nicanor is convenient to the ferry pier, waterfront, shopping etc. Yes, our room had a window opening into an airshaft, but at least there was no street noise. Within a block are several supermarkets, fast food and other restaurants, and you are two blocks from the waterfront promenade. The staff was friendly and courteous. Would stay there again.

The room i stayed in was a single room. One disadvantage of the room is that it had no real window so no view of the city. Its dark. Lighting is not good. Bathroom is average. Kinna outdated for my taste. The water supply or pressure is low. The only advantage of the hotel is that its really strategically located... More

Not sure if some of the comments to this hotel are comical or hysterical, it's really a decent hotel with nothing major to complain about. They do have some rooms with a window, so if this is important, ask for it and look at the room first rather than writing bitter reviews later. It's very clean and central, with an... More

Me and my friends planned to spend a nightlife over Dumaguete, we look for a place close enough to some of the night pubs and discos. We found this hotel along the road, it was quite good though its not that spacious. They gave us a room for group and it was just perfect. Cons: The bed was too hard,... More

I've stayed in the Nicanor Suite, the room has A/C, TV, shower, large bed etc. the room was clean to my satisfaction, the shower pressure was very low. The internet was unacceptable, it seems that the router allows only for a certain amount of computers to connect and once that number is reached You cannot connect to the network (which... More

We stayed for several nights in this hotel while visiting the town. This by no means is a resort but really great value if you just need to use it for sleep and storing luggage. The rooms are of adequate size even bigger than some hotel rooms in London or Paris but then again, those cities are mega cities while... More
