“HOME from HOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

When we arrived we were greeted with a cool welcome drink, that was a relief from the scorching heat outside. It set the tone for our stay in this hotel. I was travelling with my brother and young son, whilst the facilities were limited, having only a pool at this time, the service quality shown by all members of staff, makes up for that.

The staff endeavour to know your name and are always friendly, offering assistance when we required it. Even to my young son, when he was asking at the Front Desk for something, they treated him with respect and care.

The restaurant has a good selection of different foods and cater to the International traveller's taste.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better for being quieter

This is a very noisy hotel as it is very above a disco/bar called scrapyard. The location is not really ideal if you are here on a holiday as there is nothing to really do in the area as it is a residential neighborhood. The breakfast is plated and with very limited choices of food, I decided to walk to the french place the next day even though I have paid for breakfast already.

Room Tip: Go to Tymad as they have very good breakfast.

I have been in Cebu for a couple of times now and I am yearning of going back to this beautiful province in Visayas to get to know more about the culture, people, food, places, dialect, and especially on how to ride their jeepneys!

But what made my recent trip to Cebu most memorable is having to spend one of my weekend getaway (3D/2N) in a boutique/art/exhibit hotel in Banilad, that is The Henry Hotel!

The Henry Hotel is mostly 15-20 minutes away from the airport and is located near prime spots of Cebu City.

What sets The Henry Hotel apart from its contemporaries are the fine and masterpieces artworks in every nook and cranny; the warm hotel staff, the good food at Rica's Restaurant, and important of them all - the feel good great ambiance of each hotel rooms that are boasting of uniqueness!

Each room have their own stories to tell and each rooms are different from one another! Great place to spend and chillax Friday, Saturday, and Sundays here! I checked-in at the very X Large room that they reserved for me when I came to Cebu for a leisure visit last June 28-30.

I went out to a gimmick place called Chicken& Beer on a Friday night and spend another round of crisp beer in Cable car on Saturday, and both nights I went home to my fine, warm, fluffy, comfy, pillows and bed at Room 606 of The Henry Hotel! beat that!

Again, and I say this to myself again, it would be better if you are bringing in your special someone whenever on these great vacation places coz The Henry Hotel is very much perfect for couples, honeymooners, and family. But it doesn't mean it won't be applied for single guys like me, huh!

There are lots of words to say for this hotel but it better be you to try them for yourselves to find out!

The Henry Hotel is located at Ma. Luisa Road in Banilad proper. Rates are a bit the ordinary, but hey! If you want to impress your loved ones then it's all worth it!

I am a big fan of the Henry hotel .... love the room so diffrent from other hotels
nice clean big room modern and boutique
staff friendly and kind
small but nice garden and swimming pool

Room Tip: the XL rooms are worth the money if you like plenty of space

Recently my friend and I stayed in Henry. We were completely blown away with their service and friendly hospitality. The simple room was huge. We were completely awed by the room interior design and kept on saying whoever built this hotel was a genius. The lift buttons were touch screen. They have a bar on the 2nd floor called scrapyard which was also designer made. The whole hotel was actually an art gallery. Amazing!! Just beside the hotel they had an amazing italian restuarant called Pizza Michaelangilo. They had amazing pastas to die for. and of coz a popular spa. The only set back was that the hotel was a little bit further from the city. But we will still come back here. We would personally like to thank Han, Stef, Trepon and Mogot. Kudos you guys. Thank you for all your help.

If you will be visiting Cebu just for a daytour or business meeting. This hotel is perfect for you since the hotel is a tourist attraction in itself. The staffs are friendly, the location is 10 minutes away from Ayala IT Park and best of all, the hotel also offers good rates. visit my complete review here - http://outoftownblog.com/the-henry-hotel/

Excellent service. High value for money. Linens, towels and everything are clean. Spacious rooms. Malls, restaurants and supermarkets nearby, just walking distance. Each room has a unique design, learned how to appreciate art. Highly recommended. Will probably stay here every time I visit Cebu :)
