Experience the VIP in its definition of entertaining their guests. Its location makes the hotel more important for billeting while you are in the "City of Golden Friendship". This is one of the bestand pioneer hotel in Cagayan de Oro City.

Food - with same menu every other day. Juices with after taste even you inform them, they just ignore it. And worse, they don't bother to replace your drinks. Room service - poor. Bedsheet cover to be replaced upon check-out by the guest. How about for those who stay for a week? Do it means the guess will bear that... More

Bed smells cigar Room 406 is adjacent to a function room which noise penetrate the walls Guests in other rooms left their doors open, so the noises they generate reverberates around the corridors and penetrates neighboring room walls Room facilities from ref, TV, to bath tub are dilapidated Room size however is large and spacious

Tired old two star hotel. Badly in need of updating. Air conditioner noisy but working. Poor breakfast. Decent sized clean room. Hot water OK for me. In heart of old town. Felt safe here. Good food available nearby.
