Reviewed May 14, 2008

My wife and I chose this hotel using the rough guide recommendation which gave it a decent write up,they obviously did not stay in the room that we did. For a kick off there was no window in the room - well, there was but this only opened 2" onto a maintenance shaft ! There was no natural light coming into the room. Add to this the dodgy bed with its smelly top sheet and stained linen, not to mention the bathroom that was as big as a telephone box and this does not make for a comfortable stay! Fortunately we were only staying for the one night as we were passing through.
The staff, however, were very nice and helpful. The beer was cold and the food we did have was worth a try.
Would I recommend this place ? Not from our experience but if you get a room with a window and you are on a budget, maybe as it is affordable, also near to the mall so that is handy.

I turned up at the hotel at around 3am in the morning to find bright happy cheery faced member of staff who looked after me well and efficiently. The facility was not a modern five star hotel, but what it lacked in luxury was certainly made up in character.

I stayed in an executive room on the penultimate floor of which I thought was excellent value for 1,888PHP per night. The room was large and clean, the staff were trustworthy and delivered laundry when they said they would, I was impressed. If you know the Philippines something arriving on time is a real plus.

The hotel describe themselves as a quality economy hotel, that it may be, but everything you might find in a higher star hotel you will find here, with character. The big question is, would I go there again, would I recommend it to others, the answer, I certainly would. I only wish I knew some of the staff members names so I could send a letter of recommendation to management.

Two friends of mine recommended this hotel to me for a few nights stay in Cebu. They said it's quite new, it has good location, with good service, etc.

Good location? yes, it is. It's very accessible, near malls, etc.
NEW? uhm, i dont think so. It looks quite old to me. The bedroom was big and spacious and so was the bathroom. The only thing about the bedroom that really bothered me so much were their bedsheets!! I didnt understand why the bedsheets were so sticky. We informed housekeeping the following day and they were nice to say they would change it soon after. But still, on the 2nd night it was the same thing. Had sleepless nights because of this. I hope they do something about it. It would also be good for them if they update the interiors to make more guests come back. Little things such as broken bathtub drainage, broken closet doors, etc. are petty things that still matter.

Good service? yes it was good because they would gladly accomodate a guest right away. But i did not like it when I was informed during registration that my room rate included breakfast and then when it was time to pay (upon checking out), they would still charge me for breakfast meals. If I knew this, I would have gone somewhere else, somewhere I could have gotten better tasting food for my brekkie. That was really upsetting.

I heard there's another hotel (parklane hotel) that serves much better, nearer Ayala mall. and it's newer. have a nice stay in cebu!

I was picked up by the hotel driver at the airport and the driver was friendly. He engaged in small talk and was helpful in providing information regarding the sights in the city.

Room was clean, airconditioning was good and it has cable tv. The bathroom was clean but small. The shower stall was tooo small.

Breakfast at the cafe was alright. The staff was friendly.

Over-all if youre on a budget...this hotel should be included in your list of choices.
