“Everything seems to be so old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2011

building is old, rooms are old, towels, linens, everything is old. If you are the type who likes vintage accomodation, here's your place. walking distance from ayala mall, coffee shops etc. when we arrive at 1am after some night out with friends, the lobby is already closed, you had to knock and wake the guard up. they are super strict in terms of visitors. you can find other better pension house/hotel at the same price, for sure.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2009

I was a bit leary about a pension in the Philippines but my friend recommended it as it was near her office. No problem having a friend in the room as long as she/he is registered and shows ID. Good security at hotel but was cautioned to be smart at night when walking around despite being within 500 meters of Ayala Mall. The back streets are dark and apparently my friend had a work colleague robbed one late night(1am). Price for a double(2 people) was 800 pesos without breakfast. Had AC as well as openable windows. Shower with cold water only but everything was neat and tidy. Would stay there again without question if looking for nothing fancy. Easy access to dining and transportation. Took 40 min to airport at 9 am on a Thursday.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2008

We stayed at Pensione La Florentina from October 25-27 and from November 1-2, 2008. They have no airport-hotel transfer service, so you have to take a cab to the hotel. This will cost you around PHP 160.00 (USD 3.25) from Mactan-Cebu International Airport. Just give the driver the address of the hotel.

Location-wise, it's near Ayala Center Cebu, one of the major malls in the city, but it's very quiet at night. It's also a short cab or jeepney ride away from Cebu's tourist attractions and night spots.

A room with a single bed costs PHP 700.00 (USD 14.00) while a double room costs PHP 800.00 (USD 16.00). Extra beds are PHP 150.00 (USD 3.00). All rooms are air-conditioned and have cable TV. No hot shower. They serve breakfast, too. And late check-out is available at 50% surcharge till 6:00 p.m. and 100% surcharge after 6:00 p.m.

They don't allow visitors in the room but you can request them if you have some friends visiting as the lobby where you're supposed to entertain your visitors is hot and has mosquitos at night.

For a pension house under PHP 1,000.00

  • Liked — It was near Ayala Center Cebu.
  • Disliked — They were strict about personal visitors. The toilet & shower was a bit cramped.
