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

No windows!!! Claustrophobic? Stay away from this hotel. does not even have the bare bathroom neccessities - shampoo, lotion. There was a small soap and it looked cheap. For the rate of 1,600 pesos? You can go somewhere else better and cheaper. They are centrally located but it wouldn't matter, the city is very small and everything is a 10-min... More

TO ALL MY FELLOW TRAVELERS, PLEASE AVOID THIS ONE JUST SO THAT YOU CAN MAINTAIN YOUR SANITY. Hotel Nicanor simply does NOT deserve to be called a hotel. This one is more of a shanty or a pigsty. The room is dark and dingy. The lights are so dim that the place looks more like a run-down motel. The structure... More

Located in the center of Dumaguete it is at 10 minutes from Robinson mall and a few steps away from the other Mall. It has the big and clean rooms all equipped with aircon. The staff is really nice and they provide also a shuttle service to the airport for 150peso per person. If you book there you can't do... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Highly accessible to almost everything. Walking distance to restaurants, boulevard, malls/shops, Silliman University, the famous Sans Rival, bars, church, park etc. The restaurant do not offer breakast but don't worry, McDonald's, Jollibee, Scooby's and Chowking are just nearby. The restaurant Cafe Laguna located at the ground floor opens late so don't... More

It was a friend that booked me in this hotel. Its main advantage is the location. It is right in the heart of the city; walking distance to the boulevard, the bell tower, ATM machines, mall and restaurants. It is also a short distance to Siliman University, the port, and their Sans Rival cakes and pastry shops. Sans Rival is... More

This hotel is in the middle of Dumaguete city, so you can just walk to the stores, restaurants (especially Jo's Chicken!) and even the church(es). It's surprisingly decent and clean given its affordable rate.
