I asked a friend to reserve us a room good for 3 for our 3 days stay in Cebu. I chose this one since it's the nearest in USC. I wasn't expecting so much about the place because I somehow didn't like the photo of their facade that I saw over the net. I kinda got my first impression there.... More

The staffs were kind enough to accommodate our needs and questions. They were friendly and always smiling. The family room was nice, clean and very very spacious. No WIFI on the 3rd floor where our room was but the WIFI in the lobby works good. You'll find a laundry service and salon renting a space on the ground floor and... More

The hotel is OK, providing you do not want too many luxuries. Even if you look at the stairs - how massive they are, structure itself and the area. Staff was great, security guy was very helpful, receptionist, cleaning staff. Cannot complain at all and price was very reasonable. At least for me.

Being new, it was for convenience that I used this hotel but later found out there was suitable places that I could have used for less than PHP800 pn. Except for laundry, I did not use the services provided by the hotel. The staff are friendly enough, the most helpful being the security guy.

This is a budget hotel and don't expect much. We stayed on this hotel last on April 25, 2015 for 3 days. We are accommodated early and we are lucky for that. The attendant are very helpful to us and very opposite to those comments which i read. Surely we are coming back on my next vacation.

Dated hotel but all of the buildings are showing their age in the colon area. Staff are mostly friendly and rooms are mostly clean. Not the best hotel in town but pretty good for downtown/colon. Lots of cheap shopping nearby and the majority of the top sights are in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel de Mercedes is a favourite for local tourists and those travelling on business as the establishment is proximate to the South Bus Terminal and Piers. Nestled in a great location of Old Cebu, you are immersed in a Cebuano cultural experience. This is the choice for travellers who like to explore on foot to markets, local shops, cafes, historic sites and churches. It is rather easy to hail a cab. Plus, we have Grab Taxi services at our lobby. The look and feel of the hotel is nostalgic with wood interiors and the sound of typewriters! We have a great staff that has been with us for over 15 years! You will feel right at home. Feel welcome to ask for any tips from our bellhop and reception. Experience budget hotel rates for the smart traveller with boutique hotel service from our amazing staff. You can get rooms below Php 1000.00! Our Superior Rooms and Suites have free breakfast packages that can be served in the comfort of your room. Hands down the best deal in town! Please view our FB Page! ... more   less
