“Just stay inside your room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Pier Cuatro Hotel was recommended to me due to its proximity to Supercat Ferry terminal (about 700 m away) hence the name. My first impression was that the location tho is secluded and rather dingy. Secluded since there are no restos, stores, nor offices near it - just walled warehouses and abandoned offices. I could see SM Mall but need to take taxi to reach it. There is a BPI bank a block away which is great. I will just stay overnight so I took the room.

Night time came - whoa! Right in front of hotel is a strip club. There were throngs of tambays, rows empty taxis waiting, street vendors. I might have been happy if I'm into this kind of fun. I'm not. I just had dinner in hotel then stayed inside my room.

The hotel itself is nice. The lobby is well-lit. The reception staff were efficient. They offer good selection of meals for lunch/dinner. The grilled chicken I ordered was great. The room is compact but clean. The bathroom is spacious but I do not understand why they do not provide shampoo. Don't expect too much on the free breakfast but the danggit are ok.

Good: Proximity to Pier, short taxi ride to SM, clean room, comfy beds, reasonable price, nice restaurant, accepts credit cards, courteous staff
Bad: Unsafe environment, nudie bar right in front, no stores or restaurant around the hotel.

All the "bad" are not because of the hotel itself. I still give the hotel a 4star

Room Tip: elevator is slow and small. better take room on the 2F so you can just take stairs.

Stayed in this hotel last year for our convention. Choose this hotel because of proximity to our convention venue. But found place not safe during night time because its near the pier. On the last day of our stay the main switch of our room broke down. Our room has no windows so its really dark inside. I am in a hurry since i have to go to,the airport for my flight and i haven't taken a bath yet and they have given me an unmade room to take a shower!!! Have to carry my things and clothing to that room....hassle!!!Not a very nice experience....

from the airport a taxi should be 200p.
the staff is great and they will carry your bags to the room, very polite.
rooms are nothing special but clean and good size, with aircon, tv and warm water shower.beds are hard like rocks.
breakfast is included: boiled eggs, rice, veggies, meat, bread, butter and jam and fake juice.
is the best option for those taking a boat to bohol next day, is just 5 minutes walking.

Cebu city is much like Manila. We spent Valentines Day here at Hotel Pier Cuatro from Coron. Upon entering the hotel, we were greeted by the guard and staff who carried our bags. They gave us chocolates and processed our check in fast. From the front desk up to the restaurant staff were all polite and sincere to greet each customer. The rooms are spacious, squeaky clean and good aircon. We tried their fish fillet, salad and chicken and i think its the best fish fillet i tasted!! Its Php 60 taxi drive to SM and its also near the church and everything. We never encountered any snatchers or anything bad here. The guard calls taxi and logs them for your security. Its super cheap for it's good quality and the buffet breakfast everyday..Thank you Hotel Pier Cuatro. We'll stay there again coz i love the fish fillet and everything there!!

Room Tip: choose the super deluxe room

The place is relatively safe. Good choice for those who are going to Bohol eary morning nextday since pier 4 is just 8 minutes walk. Breakfast is better than expected. Strong water with heater. Cheap price. Value for money.

Who says low accommodation rates means lousy service? No, not Hotel Pier Cuatro! Certainly they had placed a higher notch among budget hotels in terms of service.

Had stayed for two days with family last November during our transit to Bohol. Had initially chosen this hotel because it is just a stone throw away from the pier, the gateway to Bohol... Rooms were clean and beds were comfy... Air-conditioning and internet connection worked well..

Accommodation came with daily breakfast which offers decent selection everyday.

Front desk officers are exceptionally helpful in providing information from fastcraft schedules to contact numbers of places of interest in the area...

Noticed that they have appointed a smoking area at the second floor equipped with ventilators to keep the smoke out (a relief to both non smokers like us and those who smoke)...

They also have a reading nook with travel books and magazines... an effort to satisfy their patrons which we really appreciate...

Definitely our choice in our trip back to Cebu!

Room Tip: choose a room not facing the main street... The bar across the street had their sound volume control...

We stayed here for one night in we booked this hotel as it is near Pier 4 which we needed the following day.

The room was basic as was the breakfast but exactly what you would expect from a "budget hotel" that is not to say there was any problems, the staff were helpful and the service curtious.

This is why I give it a Very good as for a low cost option it actually was.

An ok option for one night.
