3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2008

I often visit Cebu twice or three times a year and usually stay in pension houses near the capitol. Last July, my boyfriend and I decided to stay at Villa de Mercedes because of its ideal location, close to almost everything (fastfood, restaurants, laundry shops, ATMs and banks, grocery stores, capitol, etc.), and Ayala mall is just about 10 minutes away by taxi cab.

The pension house is located at a quiet street near NBI office.
I didnt have high expectations about the place. The moment we stepped into the four-storey building, the front desk lady greeted us with a big smile and I immediately felt at ease. We were really tired and headed to our room which was on the 3rd floor. No problem of dragging our bags to our room since the pension house has a small elevator to bring us there. We booked a Regular room instead of a Deluxe room because that was the only available room at that time.

The Regular room was airconditioned, with two single beds, a desk and chair, cable TV, toilet and bath (with NO hot water!!!!). Also, the bed was not very uncomfortable to sleep at. My boyfriend and I had a backache the following morning that we had to go to a spa to have a massage. Well, for a price of Php665 a night, I can't complain any less... hehehe... I forgot to mention that the pension house has different types of room to choose from: semi deluxe, deluxe, superior & family room all have water heater. Also, they offer discounted rates for long staying guests (weekly & monthly rates). Basically, the place was clean. I haven't seen any cockroach or rodent in our room or hallway. Our room was cleaned and trash was collected, new bedsheets and towels everyday.

If you're on a tight budget and only needs a place to sleep, then book in this pension house. You have to call them weeks before since this place gets fully-booked fast.
