I spent 3 nights here and liked almost eveything about it. My room was on the 10th floor and had a view of Mactan Island and the pool. Check in and checkout was fast and efficient. The room was well appointed with a flat screen,in room safe, and a nice sitting area. The lobby is bright and clean and the tour desk was helpful. I have to disagree with others about the restaraunt. It was poorly managed and was the only negative of the hotel. The food at the breakfast was cold and the boys dressed as waiters were useless. It might have had a good view, but I'll never know because all of the window tables were left dirty from previous diners (as was most of the dining area) and remained that way through the duration of my stay as the "waiters" hovered in the kitchen.

Has been a few years since I stayed at Summit Circle. The lobby has been improved with helpful staff. One reason I stay there is the free off street parking close to the lobby in the Robinson Mall building, Prices were as good as some older not so nice hotels in cebu. Price included breakfast buffet.
Summit is located near the hospitals malls and entertainment areas. Night time the area has some discos and bars but watch out the beggers street walkers and ladyboys. All in all was
good value.

Spent two nights here last April 2013. I have been staying here for the last twelve or so years, usually two to three nights for business trips to Cebu, about two times a year (except for the last three years). It had it's much deserved renovation/facelift about two years ago. So what has changed?
1. The rooms are still cozy as ever, the aircon is cool and silent. The beddings are clean and fresh. Of course you have a choice of smoking or non-smoking rooms.
2. The toilet/bath also has a new look. The old bathtubs were removed. In place now is a rainfall type shower. Wonder of wonders, they even upgraded the quality of bathsoap and shampoo.
3. The hallways are brighter.
4. The restaurant moved to a new location. Of course, the breakfast buffet is as good as ever. But I miss the grand piano. Where did it go?
5. Convenience-wise it is still tops. A department store and supermarket at the lower levels,lots of eating places nearby, and accessibility to downtown Cebu, Ayala Center and Tabuan market hasn't changed.
6. One disappointment is the WIFI. Connections are limited and weak.
7. Getting to the 4th floor lobby by car is still an adventure. You have to try it to know what I mean. Of course for the less adventurous, you can still use the elevators from the ground floor.
8. The great thing is it's tie-up with Cebu Pacific, its sister company. Present your boarding pass and you get a really big discount in room rates.

Room Tip: Choose the side facing Fuente Osmena. It gives you a great view of the city from 6th Floor upwards...

I had spotted the hotel at the SMILE magazine on our way to Dumaguete, the Cebu Pacific discount has been very helpful.... no problem in checking in, the room is big, no smell of cigarettes... basic accommodations one can look for - mini ref, tv, wifi,neat and clean sheets & bathroom....no coffee maker but thats ok since a lot of restaurants can be found around the area.... very small pool but it was enough to satisfy my youngest...staff has been helpful since i arrived from the guard to the reception to the bellboys to those assigned in the swimming pool area...although some of those in the swimming pool area are OJT, they are very friendly....

their soup and salad buffet was simple but it was worth it if your tired of meats.... the OJT told me to try the pasta buffet, but the salad made me full and besides its night time....maybe next time i'll try it as well as the cake and coffee buffet for pm snack...

loved the mixed asian/occidental breakfast. The pool is smaller than expected. perfect location, great service. It was great to have a nice sleep after a few nights in a bungalow. take care ride to the airport can take 45mn at peak time.

This hotel had its glory days in the 80's and 90's. Now, it needs total renovation. We spent 3 nights in this hotel, in December when a good friend from the USA arrived and wanted to visit her relatives from Cebu City. We did not like our room; there was a bad smell ( take note we were in a non-smoking floor) and the twin beds were so lumpy. The toilet looked like it needed thorough cleaning; we complained to the Housekeeping guy to please clean it well and spray some Lysol. We roamed around the hotel; checked the small swimming pool - some tourists there with their girlfriends noisily swimming and sunbathing.
The Cebu Midtown hotel (now Summit Circle) used to be a mid-range business hotel ages ago. I don't know how to classify this hotel now with its sad state. Food at the breakfast buffet was mediocre and it was repeated for two days; we did not eat there anymore on our third day. We also saw on the nights that we were there, " ladies of the night' hanging out in the restaurant maybe waiting for some tourists. This hotel is right above the Robinson's shopping mall and right across Fuente Osmena Circle. This is a busy area in the city and access to the hotel entrance is open to the public, therefore a security hazard . We did not feel safe in Summit Circle.
