This is a relatively new hotel, right in the heart of uptown Cebu. The location is very good - it's right on the main road, near Fuente, right across Robinson's Mall, and just a block from Mango Square - the nightlife center of Cebu. The rooms are new and very clean. Good interiors. The sheets and towels were just OK. The basic ("superior") room is very small, you'd have to watch your step lest you bump your legs into something. Breakfast? No coffee :( Wifi speed is just OK.
My biggest issue with this hotel is that it's hard to sleep in (especially in the morning) because of the noisy staff. They don't think twice about banging doors and talking with each other and laughing with loud voices across the corridor outside the rooms. They also knock very hard on doors and you can hear them talk to guests in other rooms. I had wanted to wake up late, but the noise made it near impossible.
The hotel is exactly what it calls itself - a bed & breakfast or econotel. You get just a small, but comfortable room to sleep in. So with its excellent location, it is a good value hotel. However if you don't mind going to a not-so-new hotel, with less classier rooms, there are so many other cheaper alternatives around the same area, one of which is Sampaguita Suites right across this hotel. Many others are a block or two from the main road (try J Llorente St.)
