Some good points include its accessibility, the helpful staff, and of course being budget friendly. I'd give a higher rating, but honestly thought the bathroom can be better (not too bad though). It's fine for a short stay.

Wanted to stay at at least two hotels during my stay in Cebu City, and the Stella was the first of two. Had no trouble checking in, the elevator was working just fine, the 'fridge kept things cold, the room had a view, the bathroom was clean, and the staff was courteous and professional. No complaints here whatsoever. It's location... More

Hotel Stella is very accessible from major malls in the city. They provide shuttle service for those who want to tour the whole city. The rooms are clean and smell fresh. However, the comfort room is very small. Staffs are very accomodating. Overall, one of the best hotel in the city for budget travellers.

The room we had on 1st floor was very small and had no window. Air conditioner worked but old and noisy. Staff very friendly and room cleaned daily. Breakfast available and is typical. Location very good with eating places nearby

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was cool. The staff allowed us to have an early check in which I really appreciate since my kids were already tired. The housekeeping take some time to attend our room but it's okay I understand that there's a long queue from this. Overall I am very much satisfied with their service... More

Its was an okay stay, place is near establishments. The room is okay. Small bathroom, not modern looking. I think its a budget hotel. I only texted/pm'd our reservation and we didnt encountered problems. Overall it was okay. You get what you payed for.i would recommend it to budget travellers who want to visit the old yet beautiful cebu :)

This is the only hotel I stayed where they had to change the aircon unit while we were inside room. And they did it twice. Need i say more??? Ok, here is more ... bring your own aircon if you go there. Price is atrociously high for the appalling service. n-e-v-e-r g-o-i-n-g b-a-c-k

We only stayed for two nights, but our stay was completely average. I booked two Deluxe Twin rooms, but upon our arrival only one Twin room was available so they downgraded the other room to a standard matrimonial, without offering a discount on our booking. I think they think I didn't notice the obviously smaller standard room compared to the... More

Comfort, affordability and accesibility to many establishments make it a good choice either for personal and business travel. Rooms are small but not cramped. Cleanliness and courteous staff are definitely a come on.
