I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. I was attending a conference at Silliman, so I wanted something convenient. I had not booked a room when I arrived because none of the hotels seemed good enough based on reviews here. We checked out this hotel before checking Bethel but, since that was fully booked, we decided to stay here.... More

I have traveled worldwide (27+ years) and must report this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. If you ignore my warnings and stay in this hotel... my words will ring in your ears "WORST HOTEL EVER!". We changed rooms 3 times to settle on a room where a spring in the bed did not stickup through the mattress... More

Have always stayed far from Rizal Boulevard whenever I find myself in Dumaguete. For a business trip, we got billeted here in La Residencia. Now I know it was wise to stay far from the boulevard. At night, the noise from the nearby pier can be a major sleep disruption. The rooms have undergone quite a haphazard renovation - wood... More

First room had a busted (really slow cooling) A/C. Water stains on shower divider. Bathroom fixtures were very corroded. Old linen. Dusty room. When I called the front desk to talk to the duty manager, they sent out the chef to talk to me about housekeeping issues; apparently he's the most senior guy at night. This hotel has a great...

Close to Silliman University and downtown Dumaguete, makes this a good location if visiting the university and you enjoy walking around town or along the esplanade. The rooms in the front have balconies with french doors leading out to the balconies. Good views of the harbor from your room in the front. But these rooms are noisy because of the... More

It was just stay over for next day to Dauin and really no other better choice compare this one.... The window is not able to stop any noise from outside, the restroom is poor like 20USD hotel (...

There are few options to stay if popular hotels in Bias city are full. This place is closer to Dumaguete as compared to Bias. It is a small place & was recommended by our customer since there were no rooms available in La Planta which is closer to the URSUMCO sugar mill. The restaurant is trendy & on the opposite... More

We stayed here, as it was recommended by one of our colleagues. My room was located at the city view room, which was bad for me, plus you can hear cars and motorcycles whizz pass by the street. I didn't like my stayed here.
