I booked my room four days in advance. When I came there they told me they don't have a room. A couple just left the hotel due to loud noise from construction work in the hotel, so I asked if I couldn't get their room. I asked three times if they're sure not having a room. Finally I got a... More

Villa de Mercedes is an affordable budget accommodation I had first heard about from Lonely Planet. It has been around awhile. It is centrally located 2 blocks south of the Capitol Building, 3 blocks from Cebu Doctors Hospital, and 10 minutes walk to Osmena Circle and Robinsons Supermarket. There are inexpensive places to eat nearby to suit every budget. There... More

I have stayed many times at Villa de Mercedes pensione house and I like the place very much. And it is located at a safe place in Cebu. It's only walking distance to Robinsons Fuente shopping mall (6-7 min) If you want to go to Ayala shopping mall is it 15 20 min to walk. If you want to use... More

We came to Cebu to attend a friend's wedding. The place wasn't bad at all. Don't expect anything grand but basic essentials are there, rooms & bathrooms are clean. The area was also ideally located, with Ayala Mall just a few minutes away. There is also a Filipino restaurant close to the accommodation. The food there is really amazing, definitely... More

This was our first trip to the Philippines and we had no idea what to expect by way of hotels or the city.The area is not the greatest but actually, for Cebu city, it was pretty good, you just have to keep your wits about you a bit more at night we felt. The hotel staff are really friendly but... More

I often visit Cebu twice or three times a year and usually stay in pension houses near the capitol. Last July, my boyfriend and I decided to stay at Villa de Mercedes because of its ideal location, close to almost everything (fastfood, restaurants, laundry shops, ATMs and banks, grocery stores, capitol, etc.), and Ayala mall is just about 10 minutes...
