This place would have to be one of the most disgusting places my family has ever stayed at. The photos are just of the bathroom. Never again. The smell in the room was that of a dead dog. The bed was so uncomfortable and the bedsheets soiled. We complained at reception to upgrade however was told it could not be... More

The staff are very helpful and the rooms were nice for the price. There is a cafe/restaurant on the 5th floor w/c is open from 6am-1pm and 6pm-9pm. The hotel is locates in the center of the city, very close to eateries and malls.

I recommend this hotel at Cebu for it is cheap (the room accommodation is! But not the food. You have to pay for a service fee of P50 even though the staff just give it to you and walks away. So if you don't wanna pay P50, just eat at the Cafe located at the 5th floor) and clean. The... More

Well me and my partner stayed here and we found it better than the hotel we used to stay in. Some staff needs to smile more though. The ambience is great kind of fancy yet affordable. Well the shower needs to be repaired because the hot and cold water does not work properly. And the cr door's lock is broken(in... More

Staff are very courteous and helpful, good location (city center). Breakfast is okay, except for the coffee which is in 3-1 sachet, they should serve brewed coffee or just plain coffee and not in a sachet.

The room is plain and dry! The rate is expensive! Breakfast buffet is just ordinary! My mom cooks better! The TV model is ancient! No elevators in this hotel, bad especially for Senior Citizens who have hard times in climbing stairs. One good thing about the inn is it's located in the downtown area. It is near Ayala Center. Another... More

Cheap rates. Room cleanup should be done daily. They didn't clean our room during our 3-night stay. They didn't even take out the trash. Poor wifi. Below average breakfast "buffet". Guard was friendly though. Gave us directions on how to get to places.
