Gran Prix Hotel & Suites Cebu
Ranked #67 of 86 Cebu City B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 8, 2012

I stayed at Gran Prix for only a night. The amenities are very basic but the room (including the restroom) was clean and the wi-fi was working properly.

I got the Deluxe Room. It was small but not dingy. There was no window save for a very small one next to the restroom door so no breath-taking views of the city, naturally.

The staff was accommodating but not memorable.

The location is very near the Fuente Osmena Circle which is not very ideal for those who fancy a more upscale environment. It is very near restaurants and other commercial establishments though. Just across the street is a Robinson’s mall convenient for any basic needs. A few blocks away are bars and clubs but I’m not sure if they’re any good.

There’s nothing special about the place but if you’re on a budget, it would suffice as the property is clean and the room rates are very affordable.

Room Tip: Shamrock, where most tourists buy pasalubong/gifts, is just a stone’s throw away somewhere around th...

We stayed in the 'family room' which is a split level room with a double bed on each floor. They allow 3 adults to stay in this room which has a sink, microwave, fridge and 2 TVs. For the price (only marginally more than the much smaller normal rooms) I think this place is a great deal. Breakfast is a voucher for each guest to go to Jollibees!!!

Room Tip: only book if the family room split level is available. they only take cash btw.

My fiance and I booked a superior room a day before our trip to Cebu but when we got there, their staff told ua that we have been upgraded to a deluxe room which is bigger. During our stay, their staff attended to our needs politely. Their male attendant offered help to carry our stuff and bring it to where we are heading. The staff and services was excellent. The only problem was that you can hear other people talking from the corridor or from the next room since the partitions are of drywall material. Neverthless, it was a comfortable place to stay!

I think this is a relatively new hotel because the finish is a bit fresh. There's an elevator and security cam everywhere. The room is small, with a small bed and clean sheets. The AC is exceptionally cold, the flat tv is small, and there's a small painting as well. Walls are useless because you could hear all noise from the outside of your room. Breakfast is a voucher from Jollibee, just a few blocks away. Location is great and there's free wifi. The staff is nice and accomodating. But beware though, there's a white lady that rings the doorbell at dawn that offers guests an indescent proposal, on which i don't know why they can have access in the hotel in the first place, probably through an insider pimp.

if you want a no frills place to just get your sleep and as a base for a very reasonable price then look no further. my room was clean with an ample size shower room/toilet .the air con was good and bed comfy. the location was good for malls & quite central. ok the breakfast is just a cheap voucher for the jolibee a minute up the road but your not paying for the frills. the security guard was friendly and helpful. again no luxury of in room safe but reception will take your valuables for storage & give you a reciept for it. i stayed at other places here but wished i had just came back here as they were not worth the extra money

Room Tip: if you travel from airport use a proper metered taxi...i paid 800 peso to get here but only cost 300...

The hotel is well placed for the shops, restaurants and bars in Uptown but the standard rooms are windowless and the room is reminiscent of a cell. It has a bed and a bed side table but no other fitting except a wall mounted TV and an aircon. The wifi is reasonable. The walls are paper thin. Breakfast is limited to the two cheapest options in the nearby Jollibee 24 hour cafe. It is not a room to spend time in. I would not stay here ever again.

Room Tip: The cells that run along the main road are aparently more noisy than the remainder. Rooms 301 and 30...

Arrived at this Hotel at around 8am from Mactan-Cebu Airport.
Upon arrival, we asked for early check in since we need to put our things and rest for a bit before going to work. But the Officer said that rooms are fully booked and that we need to wait for 2pm to be able to check in. That's fine. So, we sat down and rest for a while so we have a little energy to get to work and just decided to leave our things at the front desk. But little later around 15mins. the officer said that she already asked someone to clean 2 rooms for us. So for that, we think that hotel is NOT REALLY FULL. because we did not saw anyone checked out.

OVERALL review.
* Very small. All rooms no window!
* Bed sheet, pillow cases and Blanket are all dirty.
* Comfort room's bidet is really dirty and very rusty. EEW!
* Air-condition is not working well. Sometimes it blows very cold and suddenly it stops.
* Shower heater is not working.
* Water for bath is sticky.
* Service is not good.
* for breakfast stub, you need to get it at the front desk in the morning then head to Jollibee for breakfast.

We paid 2 nights at this hotel. But we only used 1 night. Feel depressed. So we need to find another hotel right after breakfast.

Room rate is expensive for the type of rooms they have.

Photos of this hotel from internet is very far from actual. :(
I do not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms are terrible!
