“Ok for transit only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Normal taxi fare from terminal 3 is 70 php, beware of scam from taxi driver. When I checked in the the girl at receptionis gave me room with shared bathroom although I booked private bathroom via agoda. After complained she gave me the right room. Standard room, don't expect too much because it is a budget hotel. The hotel provide toiletries, clean blankets and towels.

-market and restaurants are very near
-ok price
-Bathroom is ok
-clean!!
-perfect for overnight sleep

Negativ:
-small room
-little bit noisy outside

This is a decent low budget place to stay near to the airport. It is located in the Salem complex which has several restaurants and a convenience store.

The hotel itself is fine but very basic. The rooms are acceptable, the air conditioner was very noisy but it did drown out any external noise. The shared bathrooms are clean and maintained. The hotel offeres a return trip to the airport for very little.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Stayed here during a layover. Working AC in private room and showers, and washrooms seemed to be all in working order. The rooms are spread out throughout the gated group of commercial/residential buildings. 24 hour security at multiple entrances. There is a little convenience store in the complex as well as plenty of restaurants to eat at, and a small bar/club. Though I didn't sleep in a windowed room, If I had, and wanted to sleep early, music or landing plane noise may have been an issue. Bring earplugs or grab a drink. In addition I saw plenty of flight attendants and pilots staying here.

To get to domestic terminal, use the crosswalk in front of complex and walk for a minute north.

It's close, cheap and isn't fancy. If your staying for less than 24 hours it's perfect, if longer, find somewhere in the city and get away from the airport.

Room Tip: No-window rooms are dark and possibly less noisy.

The Hotel's security person helps cab drivers to overcharge foreign guests arriving at the hotel. I was told by the driver the cab fare for a 5 minute ride from the airport would be 242 pesos. The security guard who opened my door confirmed the fare was indeed 242 pesos. I then saw the security person talk to the driver and take a kickback from the overcharge. A normal fare to or from the airport would be under 70 pesos.

Very sleazy

A walking distance to terminal 4. Just across the street of cebu airlines. If it's for catching flight as early as 4 am. & just somewhere to close your eyes & rest for a lil bit, then it's fine. To stay for a few days, no thanks. The room is fine. We came there & the pillow didn't have any pillow case. So, the solution is to give us more bedsheets? What? The shared toilet & washroom is poor, smelly. & at night there seems to be a lot of noise in the corridor. & the scary thing is, someone tried to open our door. We are glad we out of there early morning.
