Dear old Grand we love you for purely sentimental reasons. This place has seen grander days but she is putting on powder and paint and making the best of herself. Seriously this hotel is good value. The rooms are big, the beds are comfortable and the staff like most Filipinos are a delight.
Take a room with 'mountain view' if you want peace from the dreadful Cebu traffic. The bathroom spills water on the floor. What is it with hotel bathrooms? Here we are in the 21st.century surrounded by electronic gizmos, mostly useless and apparently the hotel trade is incapable of providing decent bathrooms with showers that work. The air con is old and noisy but you can live with it.
The breakfast here is a great start to the day. Make sure you have an omelette. If you take an evening meal dont ask for a glass of wine - something most peculiar will arrive. Stick to bottles. Dont ask for champagne though, they bring you Asti - quelle horreur! Actually we prefer Asti. The room service meals are excellent.
If you are seriously starving go to Jovens Grill in Pres. Osmena Blvd. where you can eat all you like for less than £4 or even less. If you take at least two pals, you get a 'bogof' Monday to Thursday evenings.
For a good laugh try the pool on the top floor. It is just a big bath.Two strokes and you have swum a length. Kids love it.
