I asked a family-friend (who works in the travel & tourism industry), what's a nice and affordable place to stay in Cebu, and she suggested that my friends and I stay at Summit Circle Hotel during our Cebu trip last January 6, 2013.
Booking and check-in was a breeze (via directwithhotels). We were a party of 4, so we booked two deluxe rooms. When we got to our rooms, we saw that each room could easily fit four, maybe even five people, as there were two double beds plus a couch on the side.
Bathroom was clean. My only qualm is that there is no water heater, coffee mugs, and free coffee/sugar/creamer sachets if you wanted to make coffee.
The hotel's location is quite convenient as it is on top of a shopping mall and grocery. If you need to buy something, you can easily go there. The hotel is also near to some restaurants, a drug store, convenient store, and if you're a true coffee addict, Starbucks is a 5-minute walk away (at the ground floor of Crowne Regency).
Hotel has wifi but a little erratic. Breakfast at C2 was good, the usual continental flair, but would have to loved to see some Filipino breakfast choices as well, like tapa, tocino, longganisa, etc. There was danggit though.
I would have to agree with the other reviews that the best quality of this hotel is their hospitality. Staff was courteous, accommodating, and always smiling.
Overall, our stay at Summit Circle Hotel was pretty good. I would love to stay here again on my next Cebu trip.
