“one night stay with no complaints!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

we arrived during a peak period (Nov 2) from bohol to cebu. the location was nothing special, but i must say it is near the points of interests - we only walked going to the port, aa bbq restaurant (must visit!), sto nino church, magellan's cross, ceb u cathedral, shamrock pasalubong center, 2 ancestral homes turned museums (yap-sandiego and casa gorordo) and the heritage monument. it was one jeepney away from fuente circle. rooms were spacious & newly renovated (get 5th floor rooms) and cafeteria had a homey feel. we got 2 double beds, a cable tv, mini-sala, ref, clean bathroom and a/c - for only P1,100 a night - there were 4 of us. hotel also had new elevators. staff were accommodating and helpful, they also allowed us to check out late (3pm!) and leave our luggage until 7pm in their storage area for free (flight was at 10pm so we had time to go around and hear mass after checking out).

Room Tip: get the renovated rooms at the 5th floor

We stayed there for 4 nights for an important event. We found cockroaches on the floor and the dirt particles are on the walls and on the bed, a sign that the room is not well-maintained and cleaned. Every night, the renovation downstairs is scheduled until 11pm causing us not to sleep and rest early because of the noise done by hammering and drilling. When we called the staff to stop the hammering and drilling noises, the staff told us that the management has deadline to finish the renovation and promised us to stop by 10:30 pm, yet it stopped around 11 pm..so, a sign that they do not care about their customers. Although it is a cheap hotel, but management and staff should learn the basic Management and Customer Services 101.

Stayed here for one night, a sunday night in room 309.
Noise from a band playing somewhere downstairs from about 7.30 pm until 3.30 am, so not too much sleep that night.... And I found a bedbug on the bed, and I know what a bedbug looks like!
The room, including the bathroom really look tired and in need of renovation.

The only pro is, it's close to the sights of Cebu.

This hotel is unique. The hotel entrance blends in with the surrounding buildings and only an alert eye will tell you that you have reached your destination. If you are looking for basic, clean, accommodations at a price that go easy on your wallet....look no further. There is more to value than just price. Have stayed here before and was very pleased. This time was no exception. Desk staff are very friendly and accommodating. Rooms...although small....are very well kept and clean. Hotel is in the midst of the busy downtown area...and as such offers the visitor access to numerous restaurants....fast food....and shopping. Short taxi ride from the ferry boat pier.....or approximately half hour ride (depending on traffic) from the airport. You will read good and bad reviews about most any property...but from my personal experience....this hotel should be one you might want to visit. There are numerous inexpensive hotels in Cebu City....but rest assured that you will find your stay at the Cebu Century hotel a pleasant one.

Comfort room is so bad with very dirty shower curtain. Shower and faucet needed to be clean and to be fixed. Please check their towel,it's so dirty. Their towels has so many stain. They need to replace their towel. One more thing, staff in the hotel are very noisy and not friendly. Staff are not friendly and don't know how to smile to everyone coming and out their hotel....This is the most dirtiest hotel that I have ever stayed..

Cebu Century Hotel is located at Colon street; the oldest street in Cebu. There are small malls and many eating outlets near to the hotel.

Check-in is pretty smooth though they have slight difficulty finding my booking. I book a Deluxe room for P700 per night and if you need the access to the TV, you will need to pay a refundable deposit of P500 for the remote control.

The hotel is about 5 storey high. If you want to impress your Filipino friend with your hotel room, this is not the place. Room looks tired and really badly need a renovation. Toilet is not that clean but the toilet bowl looks very clean. Water pressure is good enough but be patient with the hot water. Furnishing is basic and the bed is comfortable enough.

Staff are friendly and there are lots of food outlet for you to choose.

the hotel is located in "downtown" cebu, Some people may not like the area, but I had no problems there. Being centrally located, it was close to all facilities, food, shopping, etc.
The rooms were both a delight and a surprise. they were much larger than I expected, and the bathrooms were larger and just as well equipped than many high end hotels.The bed was large, comfortable and well adorned, clean quality linen and nice pillows. the aircon was more than adequate, cable tv and refrigerator .food and beverages are available in the cafe, or delivered to your room, for a very small extra charge, a nice convieniance.The hotel has 2 elevators, 1 is new, there are boardroom and function facilities if you have business or social engagement needs.There is also an ATM directly outside the front doors, with the hotel guard next to you, if you are a little worried about making a withdrawal. The main cross street closes at 8.00pm each night and a street market with all sorts of goods and food is right there.
I think many hotels could learn from this establishments business model, providing good, clean,quality accommodation at a very reasonable price. I was pleasantly .
Highly recommend this establishment
