The hotel is at the heart of the city. It is accessible to most commercial establishments--shops, banks, stores, restaurants, churches. It is walking distance to the boulevard where many restaurants are located, to the House of Silvanas which is a very popular bakery and coffee shop and to Silliman University. The hotel offers vehicle service to and from the airport. The hotel premises are clean just like Dumaguete City itself. The rooms are spacious and clean and coffee is available. There is also a minibar and refrigerator. The bathroom is clean and equippped with such amenitiesas hot and cold shower, hair dryer, toilet articles, soap, shampoo, etc. Cold drinking water is available in each floor. We stayed in a room on the seventh floor where one has a view of the city and the sea. The staff are pleasant, courteous and very helpful. The restaurant offers breakfast and a few meal dishes. The hotel may serve as jump-off point to nearby places in Neg. Or. such as Bravo Golf Hotel in Sibulan, Azalea Restaurant (where nature is at its best) in San Jose. I suggest that the restaurant open earlier than 7:00 a.m.to acccommodate travelers going out of town or leaving for an early flight. .And oh yes, they do honor one's senior citizen privilege.
