“Right choice for a budget traveller and near to tourist spots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We stayed here together with my friends for 5 days in Family Executive room.The price is very affordable. The room is okay. The TV is an old school CRT type and has a cable but the quality of the picture in the TV is poor. There is a small fridge which is included in our room type. The shower is good and the heating system is working good. It is located in downtown Cebu. The location is very near to most of the tourists attraction in Cebu. Its just across the Magellans' cross and Basilica Del Sto. Niño and also Cebu City HallRoom package doesn't have complimentary breakfast. We always go to Mcdonadls which is in front of the hotel for our breakfast. Haven't tried their food in the cafeteria. There is small elevator in the hotel. The staff were friendly. Wifi are available only at the lobby. There are supermarket near the hotel if you want to buy your supplies for the rest of your stay. Overall, I will recommend this to my friend. Check in and check out is fast. It's about 30 minutes to 1 hour from Airport depending on the traffic.

Room Tip: Book on higher floors (4th or higher) for a good view.

a stones throw away from Basilica Minore,Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral & Magellan's Cross..very convenient area,there is an Island Souvenir Shop beside the hotel,711 convenience store & Cebu city hall for a short walk..staffs were friendly and helpful,an Ilonggo staff was ever ready to assist & very courteous. the in house restaurant serves delicious meals,very generous too when I ask for an extra cucumber & banana for my breakfast.

Room Tip: choose rooms on the higher floors,Cebu lights during the night is captivating.

The hotel is located close to tourist attractions in Cebu City (Sto Niño Basilica, Fort San Pedro, Magellan's Cross, etc). Also, fast food chains and establishments are just a few blocks away. Room rates are reasonable and the room is clean and well maintained. I got a room with a view of the Basilica and upper Cebu City.

Stayed here last September 2013.

The hotel is just located about 200 steps to the Basilica os Sto. Nino and the cross of Magellan. Very convenient since all restaurants around the church are packed and most establishments do not allow non-patrons to use their restroom or the line is long, you can walk back anytime to your own private room for rest and relaxatoon. One of the best parts is how corteous and helpfull ALL of the staff. Will definitely stay there again for 2015 Sinulog Festival.

Room Tip: Ask the front desk to assist you with regards to tranportation and tour guide for your Cebu tour. Ne...

Had a business meeting in cebu and my client arranged an accomodation in Sampaguita suites, plaza garcia branch, stayed for 3 days and 2 nights.

the location is near Cebus famous spots, Magellan cross, Sto. Nino Church, Capitol. A 7-11 a few meters from the hotel, mc donalds just across the street.

The rooms are pretty neat with basic ameneties like hot and cold shower, cable tv, telephone, and a very comfy pillows and mattress.

elevator with soft touch buttons hehe,

cons, quite far from the airport.

i just like the location of the hotel specially a night, no theres no parteee happening, just love the old feel of the environment, the old structures, the lights, the serenity ( 9 pm onwards ) makes you feel like your in a different city.

the best part is that the rate is affordable if not the most affordable hotel in Cebu, about 18$

i will stay here again thats for sure.

Sampaguita Suites has a perfect location, close to almost all tourist attraction of Cebu. Right beside Sto. Niño Basilica and Magellan's Cross. Few blocks away to other location like Plaza and AA Bbq. Another thing, the price of the room is just right for your budget. :)

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 17/9 to 22/9 at Room 604. We can see the sea from the room. Room is small but sufficient as it has a cabinet with good storage place (unlike most of the budget hotel which doesn't even have a place to hang our clothes). Aircon super cold, water heater and pressure inconsistent. Cabel TV actually has tons of watchable channels. If you asked for any assistance like towel, a flask of hot water , it would happened in a speed of lightning. Not many hotel , even the 5 stars hotel can provide such efficient service.

The staff named Chan is extremely helpful and always cheerful and smiling. He seems to understand our needs and pointed us to all the right place from local eatery, laundry service, internet cafe etc.

The location is simply great as we walked to all the nearby attraction like Magellen Cross, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, Yap Santiago House, Plaza Independence, Fort San Pedro ,Colon Street, City Hall.

24 hours Mc Donald is just across the street. The 7-11 is a stone throw away and Internet Cafe and Laundry service (25 peso per kg, minimum 2 kg) located 3 blocks away. Same roll there is a little eatery called Nito's Lechon that sells great roaster pig (about 60 peso for a serving of pork, rice and coke) . We went to the famous TNT Lechon just opposite SM Mall but we prefer Nito's lechon (Open daily from 10am to 8pm). Another place the staff recommend was the AA BBQ next to Plaza Independence, yummy food at reasonable price, try their Green Mango shake.

The street kids at the corner of the hotel as well as street vendors doesn't really bug us much as they are not persistent.

Overall a very pleasant experience. Very good base for our stay in Cebu.
