Actually with my two stays here. They gave me a good room. Room 39 and Room 40 to be exact. First time I stayed here, room had no towels. Good thing on the second time they already gave me not only one but two. Place is good if your'e really on a very very tight budget and just need someplace... More

I have stayed here twice! The rooms are what they say it is. Its budget! they are clean but old. Some of the taps leaked but not to bad. I have been in a twin room and a double room. It is walking distance to everything. Great coffee house across the road and Robinson mall and restaurants are all close.... More

I was in Cebu for a single night. Like what a reviewer mentioned, it does have a sad, gloomy atmosphere to it and all the other issues with it. Although I didn't stay when there was a nearby construction site, I still thought the aircon was loud as heck. But I still had a good sleep nonetheless. Poor locking system... More

I am here for more then 2 months and I must say that it's becoming a nightmare to stay in this hotel. Most of the time the hot water doesn't work (sometimes it happens 3 times a week) specially in the evening when you really feel that you want to take a hot shower. Even when the water it's warm...

We stayed there for 3 days and the experience is a total disaster. AMBIANCE. The lobby is just fine. It's average. They gave us room 1 at the ground floor. I was really expecting a very relaxing place. But when we opened the lights, tadah! It not what I was expecting. The room is unclean. I thought maybe someone just... More

it sounds to good to be true, Wifi, warm water and aircon. for 750P, in the end only the aircon works. We had mice in our room and had to remove more than 10 big cockroaches, after that we had to spray our room with cockroache killer spray. The lady behind the desk had just finished her second painting and... More

This pension house is cheaper compared to others in that area. The rooms are very simple. But one thing I like in this place is its central location - near to church, banks, restos, bars, spas, malls, bookstore, hospital, etc. It is also accessible to all destinations in the city. It has also a free wi-fi. Though the bathroom is... More
