“nice & confortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

A nice hotel with good service. Close to the airport, in a area not so bussy...clean rooms and good connetions to the city. It was nice to stay in this hotel. I arrived in the airport and with taxi it was only a few minutes...

If you are looking something just for one night - this hotel could be perfect. Quite cheap, nearby the airport, clean and very helpful staff. They advise us about ferry tickets, call a taxi in the morning. Very friendly people. We totaly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Book any room - itll be OK.

The location is not in a very good neigbourhood, lots of ladies of the night nearby, be wary if you go out for a walk after dark, not any good whatsoever for families, difficult to find. The best is that the Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: I would suggest you ask for a room with a window, having one without is claustrophobic.

a good hotel for backpackers and for overnight or short stays. the staff are warm and accommodating especially Ms. Michelle. the place is hard to find because it is in the middle of a remote area. Thanks to Ms. Michelle who willingly help us by giving us the direction to locate their place..the room is clean with comfy bed and cable flat-TV. they honor the señior citizen discounts which instead of paying P1,400 for family room (3 pax w/breakfast) we only paid P1,200+..it is near to the airport (5-10mins (taxi)..affordable, friendly staff and clean..surely, i will return to this place..

place difficult to reach, even the tricycle drivers are not familiar. the hotel is located in a neighborhood which while not dangerous, is not really appealing. ok for overnight or short stays as the rate is cheap and near airport.bed is comfortable and flat tv and international/local channels are nice.

I was stranded due to a typhoon that day and so out of haste I was supposed to book the other branch at Cebu, instead I got this Lapu-Lapu branch. My first consideration was the price, then the rating and reviews too.
The hotel was clean enough, and I was shocked they had good wifi. But what I did not like was the location. Not only was it hard to find but the neighborhood was somewhat unsafe. I'm not going back here if there are better choices.

Room Tip: The room is quite small. I assume all the other rooms are so.

this hotel is very new. rooms are small but clean and all necessary is present although you might get stuck manoeuvring between the bed and the desk/shelf. an lcd tele is provided with many international channels. breakfast is simple, filipino style and plated, but does the trick for a budget place. rate for a double room in this state is very cheap. biggest drawback is that although not far from the highway in lapu lapu most taxis are not familiar with it. getting away a taxi has to be called from the highway as well. the hotel is in the middle of a messy area. although never threatening its not very interesting. the internet was not always working in the room and staff was not very helpful in fixing it. in the restaurant it was flawless.
