Most of my meetings would be in the area of Gen. Maxillom Avenue in Cebu Cty. I also knew that my three days would be long and hectic so I had to choose a place that was centrally located and affordable. Pricewise, nothing could beat. For what I paid, the room was far bigger than in some pension houses. Airconditioning... 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

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
