My friends visited Cebu for the Sinulog festival and we had a wonderful time! The location of Pacific Pensionne was right by the parade and it made it so easy and convenient to walk out to join the mardi gras party outside.

The staff were very nice and even if they were very full, our requests were always met and the staff's happy mood were contagious. Our rooms were clean and fresh towels were also available. We also had hot water in our room although we didn't really need it after the partying in the street - we needed a cold shower!

The lobby was also nicely decorated and they even gave free lunch (love love the lechon - roasted pig on a spit) to all the guests. Such a great deal - don't get me wrong, its not a 5 star hotel, but for the price you are paying - it is such a bargain!

Our friends are looking to our next trip to Cebu and Pacific Pensionne!

Room Tip: The rooms with a back garden view is nice and tranquil..

I book tru agoda.com IN this pensionne for my 11 staffs to stay while taking their board exams IN cebu. at first the front desk name marichel seems very pleasant and accomodating to speak with, but after we register to check in then problems start to arise. if you plan to stay here pls look for some other place to stay since this is a bogus hotel, when you check in they will not tell you what they will extra charge but after you register they will keep on calling you and let you pay 900 for early check in without any issuance of official receipts from thew bir. and also if you look for a van service even if you dont avail it they will insist you will pay for it. The manager irene ty seems to be an arrogant manager without any consideration to hotel guest insisted that you pay her all the bogus charges. i want to file complaints to department of trade & industry about this kind Of modus operandi so other people will not be victimized by this establishment. and also i want to call the attention of the commisioner of bureau of internal revenue re: their non issuance of official receipts upon paymt, only did they issue receipts after i lodged my complaint to them. I hope that responsible gov't agencies will look into this matter right away to avoid further victims of their modus operandi. to all people who wish to stay here, please beware and stay some place safer and honest. not to mention that rooms are very dirty. too many cockroaches and bathrooms stinks. bed has big bugs as big as a popcorn!!!!

Room Tip: lower and higher rooms too dirty and non condusive.

A nice place to stay located at the heart of the city, very near to the malls (Robinsons Malls), just a ride away to SM and Ayala, Foodchains that are open 24 hours, The Crown Regency, and some restobars, and night out spots (The Mango Square).

The place is quite nice, they offer an affordable and safe accommodation, they have their own resto at the entrance, the reception staffs are friendly, they have a lounge area for visitors.
The hotel is a few meters away from the main street, so... you can sleep in comfort without the annoying noise of the traffic outside.

I stayed on one of their non-airconditioned room since all the other air conditioned rooms were fully booked.
The room i got was the lowest on the price list but its worth it. The room was spacious for a single accommodation, it could actually accommodate 3 persons since it was a double bunk bed (as shown on the pic i uploaded). The comfort room and bath was clean and simple, the tv was old and unfortunately doesn't have a remote control, cabinets are also old but will do for the price I payed, shower and faucets got good water pressure, and yeah all the doors are keyless or card access. They also offer wi-fi but unfortunately its not free. Well, overall the place is nice and clean, staff are friendly, location is good, and the rates are affordable.

I have stayed at this hotel almost every year for the past nine years. My last 2 visits were a problem because they no longer clean the room if you stay for a second or more nights. The front desk told me that they only clean 'on request', so I did request before I left the hotel in the morning, for the day. On my return at 10 p.m.the room had not been cleaned and there were no cleaning staff on duty at that time of night. I did manage to get dry towels after pressing the front desk. Fortunately there are many other Pension Houses with same or lower rates in the area. I no longer patronise this hotel.

Pacific Pension is ideally located near Fuente, the roundabout in the center of the city. Robinsons department store is located there and on the opposite end of Osmania boulevard is Colon with smaller department stores favored by locals because of the lower prices that Fuente. This hotel is a favorite with locals and retired foreigners because of its prices and locations. I lacks the luxury and ambiance of many pensionnes but the staff are warm and friendly. The rooms are typical of many budget hotels with a simple open style bathroom, a TV (also with English channels), small table, very small wardrobe cabinet and key card entry. Rooms all have air conditioning and sleeping arrangements vary from rooms for singe persons to family rooms (double bed, plus double bed with a single above). Prices seem to range from 700 to 900 pesos placing it in a favorable price range for budget travellers wanting cost effective accommodation. There is a small cafe attached with modest but tasty meals....home cooked style. Linen is changed only on request and the hotel has a security guard and 24 hour desk service. Do not expect anything spectacular but it is clean and pleasant located away from the main noise of the street.Sometime the linen change is a problem because the hotel seems to have a limited linen supply and towels often arrive later in the day. I would suggest that this hotel seems to have great potential but the upper management seems to lack the on the job direction necessary. I stayed two months in this hotel including the Sinulog festival in January 2012 and really enjoyed the location. Wifi is free in the coffee shop. It just requires a little patience and things get done...eventually. Gettibg towels and toilet paper always seems to take longer than necessary.

Room Tip: Lover floors are the "deluxe" rooms but have easy access. The upper floors require a healt...
