“Stay elsewhere.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

This hotel is located in Lapu Lapu, about 15-20 minutes from the airport. This is a "budget hotel" with a nicely presented website. The website was the best part about this place. I took a Standard room and was presented with a dirty looking room with bare walls, a thin bed and a bathroom that had ants crawling all over it. The cable TV that they advertise was nonexistent, the TV has at most, 2-3 channels. They did offer free wifi in the lobby only. The neighborhood did not have much to offer except for a Jollibee across the street that opens late and closes early.

The hotel could do a few simple things to make the rooms more appealing: Hang some stuff on the walls inside the room, get real cable TV and take care of the ant problems in the bathrooms.

Room Tip: Their is not much difference between Standard and Deluxe other than the Deluxe offers a hot water sh...

Check-in: When I arrived, no one was in the front desk. The guard just called the lady on duty. Looked like she just leaves there because she was not in her uniform but rather in her comfortable house clothes. She was polite and courteous in asking me my printed booking confirmation and asked me for a P200.00 deposit, refundable upon check-out. She issued an Official Receipt right away and handed my room key.

The Room: Room assigned to me was in the 3rd floor and there's no lift in the building. I chose a Matrimonial Bed. It was okay but linen was too thin that you can even read what's written in the bed tag. Pillows were good, firm but soft. Floor was dusty. I even scrubbed it with the rag they provided. There was a TV (CRT) but you have to get the remote control from the front desk. A/C worked well. Room has a window with very thin curtain. Made me woke-up early.

Toilet and Bath: Toilet walls, floor tiles, toilet bowl were clean. No hot and cold shower but has great water pressure. It has a dirty, broken pail with a dirty dipper in it. Don't know if someone will have a guts using it. Towel provided was thick and clean. A very small soap and a 1 tissue roll also were free.

Location: Walking distance from Cebu-Mactan Ferry warf. Unitop Supermarket is just beside the building. La Nueva Supermarket and Jollibee are just infront and there are lots of bakeries and stores outside. Nice Restos like AA BBQ, malls like Gaisano and Marina Mall are just 1 jeepney ride away for P8.00 only. Airport is approximately 15 mins. away...depending on traffic situation.

Overall, it was a good choice for a backpacker that's not so picky about hotel amenities. For just P725.00 a night, I can't complain.

I had an overnight stop in Cebu and was looking for a cheap place to stay. GV Hotel is nothing fancy, you get what you pay. I paid only 650 PHP for a double with A/C and cold shower. The room seemed clean, but when I came back from dinner, I saw a mouse in the room. I can highly recommend to NOT leave any food in the room, not even packed ones. I had some bags of peanuts, not opened yet, the mouse was eating trough the package and opened the bag. Disgusting.

The hotel offers free WiFi, the staff was friendly.

If you're looking for a cheap place near the airport, this is a good deal. There is a huge supermarket right in front of it and there are many street food stalls, so don't worry about getting nice food here.

The best thing is, that the place is very conveniently located, you can take a jeepney from the airport, it's only 8 PHP. Go to the departure area at the airport and take the jeepney to the public market. Get off at the public market, the hotel is right there. When you go back to the airport, there is no direct jeepney, you have to take one jeepney to Marina Mall, from there you will see jeepneys going to the airport.

GV was not a fancy place, but I would stay here again if I would have a short layover in Cebu.
