“Great value, close to the airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stayed for one night after flying into Mactan from Iloilo. The hotel is a short taxi ride from the airport. We paid php1,000 which was good value as the room was lovely. The room was very big, brand new, very clean with aircon, wifi, cable tv and a balcony.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The following morning we took a short tricycle ride to take the boat over to Cebu to continue our travels.
Overall this is a great value hotel for a short stay before or after a flight.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Nothing to complain. It's worth than its price of 900 Php Peso per night. Room and bed is super clean. But be aware that hotel do not have food and there is no electric pot in the room while a restaurant next door (pizza) is open at 9.30am without coffee served. There is a convenience store nearby that you can find neccessary stuff and very nice local BBQ restaurant is just 100 meters away. However, hotel is far from eveything and a bid difficult to find taxi. And Taxi is the worst thing of Cebu. Though they use a meter but they just don't give you a change.....make sure you have enough 100 bill to pay because if you give 500 bill....a driver will never give you a change no matter how much it is. Make sure you overestimate your traveling time in Cebu because traffic is surely bad everyday.

Room Tip: not recommend for family with small children

When i arrived the hotel was not yet finished due the recent renovation. But the price was the most interesting for the quality given. Says enough about similar hotels in the region. After some weeks they gradually erased all the flaws what made me decide to stay for one month extra. I know they where some complaints at first : noise from the street,wifi not working everywhere,no drinks available at the hotel itself etc etc. Well they weren't there anymore when i left. They invest very efficient in those problems (new double glass windows,more wifi rooters,several fridges downstairs with all kind of beverages) what made me conclude that they do anything to make it an perfect hotel for their costumers. Always asking/thinking what could improve. The staff is also more than helpfull and are very good in resolving a guest his problem with a warm smile. Overall the experience i had in this hotel was excellent and i have plenty of good memories staying there. Can't wait to be back , thank you Roslyn , Didier and the Staff !

Room Tip: The rooms on the backside of the building are quieter.
