“A good hotel with a pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I arrived not sure where to stay in Cebu. Its many years since I was last here and prices have increased dramatically. I noticed by producing Cebu pacific airlines boarding card entitled a 30% discount at this hotel, although if you book on line in advance you can still get it for the price I paid. The hotel was very good. My room was large with multi channel TV, room safe, sofa, king size bed and aircon. Breakfast was included buffet style many choices and Mark the waiter was very helpful helping me with the various dishes. Below the Hotel is a Robinsons dept. store eating places and a Jolly bea Took a trip to Ayala shopping centre which was very impressive especially the garden and fountains in the centre. Spent a day at the beach White sands resort. Very nice apart from the building work going on. Cebu is like manila the traffic I found quite horrendous. would recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Book on line its cheaper. If you are flying Cebu pacific airlines then if you show your boarding ca...

The Summit Circle in downtown Cebu City is a reliable hotel with many conveniences for short- and longer-term visitors. These include easy access to a range of shopping options at the attached shopping mall including grocery store. The city 'center' is no longer really the center as expansion has moved much of the economic activity to reclaimed areas closer to the airport. However, this is the REAL Cebu City and the hotel staff go out of their way to make your experience pleasant. My only consistent issue is with the poor internet connectivity in the rooms. The neighborhood is not suitable for families with small children but is a good business hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in close proximity to the internet routers in the hallways.

This is a hotel that is hard to find anything wrong with. I have stayed there 3 times and found all the staff to be very helpful and WELL TRAINED. Hotel is in a good position in town although a fair way from the airport and nightmare in very traffic. The rooms are good, clean and roomy and the pool area is pleasant

Decent sized, clean room with tile floors, small but new bathroom, loveseat, table, nice tv, safety deposit box, and what seemed like lots of old men and young girl patrons. Be aware if that's an environment you'd rather avoid.

Breakfast buffet was decent and included with the room. Convenient location, connected to Robinsons and 15-20 min taxi ride to Ayala, depending on traffic.



Paid approx $50 booking directly through the webiste. Had no issues with add on costs as others have reported.

Room Tip: One note - most rooms face out to the circle so the noise is semi loud basically all night.

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.
