Rooms are very big. Dont get fooled by the small lobby. We stayed in a family room where a queen size and a twin size bed isplaced. They say its good for 4 but you can fit more. The room has make up counters, footrest at the edge of the bed, your own table and most of all a huge... More

It is very centrally located - walking distance to the city's iconic Rizal Boulevard, the renowned Silliman University, the main streets and avenues, restaurants, souvenir shops, the public market, the imposing St. Cathedral Cathedral, City Hall, and everything else! The front-desk staff (take a bow: Kris, Jenna and Stella) and the housekeeping people are the best. Requests are immediately delivered.... More

It would have been great if the management had spent the money inside the room rather than in the corridors and door entrances. Nice fancy new door surrounds but inside the rooms are featureless. My room looked nothing the inviting photo on Agoda. Huge bed but with some kind of foot surround that meant it was impossible to actually walk... More

The Hotel Nicanor is located just a couple of blocks from the waterfront, in the heart of the city. We found our hotel room clean and comfortable, with a kind and attentive staff and adequate amenities. We stayed for a couple of nights on the fourth floor, and then after a trip to Siquijor, one more night on the fifth... More

We stayed at hotel nicanor for 2 nights from 1st May till 3rd May. we were a big group of 14 but they were able to accomodate us even if we arrived early for check in. They had one room already available for us so we were able to leave all our bags in our room and begin our tour... More

Excellent 3 star rooms which are 2 star because they lack a couple of things such as a fridge. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is the nice bonus of free water in the hallway, hot and cold. Our only issue was that the first room stank of raw sewage, so I refused it. The second room was... More

I had a plan to stay there for couple of days not until I experienced a bad service. I called the housekeeeping many times for water, but they never answered. I asked one of the staffs where I can get water and he told me there's a water dispenser over there but when I got there, it was empty. It... More

The location is perfect because it's near the restaurants and mAlls. The room is okay. I got the standard room. The lighting is a bit dark for me and the aircon takes time for it to cool. The shower area in the bathroom is a bit small. The price is ok

Good location. Nice and clean. Reasonably good service. If you're staying in Dumaguete and want to be close to everything in town, this is your best choice. We had the massive Executive Deluxe room with a refrigerator, big TV, WiFi, a/c, etc. for around $50 a night, so a good value. The only thing the room lacked was a safe,... More
