“Very Hot Room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

We stayed in this hotel overnight during our trip to Bohol.We chose it since it was near the Pier where we took the ferry from Cebu to Bohol Islands. When we came back we just walked for a few blocks and we were already at our hotel.When we arrived at the hotel there was a brown out and after a few minutes they turned on their generator.

The room is quite small but just right for the 3 of us.There was a double bed and a single bed. The room aircon however cant make the room cooler. We had turned on the aircon for almost two hours and it was still warm inside our room.

We ate dinner at the restaurant and the food was delicious and was promptly prepared.
The location of the hotel is in a not so nice place surrounded by stores and a nightclub infront of the hotel.

Pros:
Near to Pier, nice food, good bathroom, strong aircon, good wifi, friendly staffs.

Cons:
A bit noisy at night, not much shops/restaurant nearby.

Food seems nice, only tried 1 item, therefore cannot judge on it. Breakfast is normal.

Room Tip: Request for service water instead of bottled water. Both are the same, 1 is FOC, 1 is not.

if you plan to visit Cebu on budget type, Cebu Pier Cuatro is one of the place you'll stay with. The price is cheap and affordable thus offering you a free buffet breakfast. The location is nearby the SM and Robinsons Cebu, so there is no rush for things. The room is just a so-so which is average and fits with the offered price..

We chose based on location, as it was right by the pier for our next morning boat ride. It is opposite a strip club and around us was a construction site. The walls were very thin and we woke up a few times in the night to hear next door arguing! Horrible! The room was also very hot, the temperature was coming from the wall?! The basic-ness of the room was fine but it was the thin walls and the temperature of the room that put us off. Would we stay here and recommend, no I don’t think so. We rather sleep outside!

Hi Sir, thank you for taking time to leave a feedback. We are aware of the thin-ness of our walls and we have already started allocating a budget for sound proofing - which we hope to include in our next major renovation. It is just unfortunate that there were construction works being done by the city right outside of the hotel during your stay that also contributed to the noise. We appreciate your feedback and we will continue to find ways to improve on amenities that are within our control.

We where travelling from Dumaguete to Malapascua and required an overnight stay in Cebu City. Trip adviser recommended the deal by offering the Hotel Pier Cuatro and based on the overall good reviews and price we booked and were not disappointed, The hotel would appear fairly new and built in a developing part of the wharf area therefore close to ferry terminals and only 2 km to the northern bus terminal. We took a white cab taxi from the southern bus terminal for a 25 minute ride at 85 Peso and were cordially greeted at check in, during which, we were handed a welcoming and refreshing icy cold orange drink. Our room was compact, very clean with air-con and wi-fi. We ate in the hotel restaurant and were served efficiently by very attentive staff. The food was also very good and reasonably priced. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was buffet style with sufficient choices to satisfy all tastes. We left at 6:30 a.m. again by white cab which was quickly hailed by the concierge from the nearby main road. Would highly recommend this hotel although at first the location looked a little industrial. We walked to nearby brand new and huge SM hypermarket. We would certainly stay here again. Would also add that we found the Ceres bus liners to be the cheapest, fast!!!! and most efficient service, with air con, wi-fi and even on board movies.

I wasn't planning to stay no more than 1 night on my way back to Panglao. I wound up staying 3 nights and was very pleased with the accommodations and the staff. The morning I arrived I was too late for the buffet breakfast, but they told me to order whatever I wanted for breakfast and comped it.

The SM mall is a very short distance away (maybe 500 too 600 meters) and if there was no taxi out front, the guard would get one for you. Also, there is a BPI bank right next door if you find yourself low on cash.

I plan on returning to Panglao via Cebu and will definitely stay there again.

nice smie, good food, near to SM..youcan even walk there.

1280P for an air-conditioned deluxe room with breakfast is really a budget price.
the breakfast is delicious.
all the staff are nice, greetings and smile.
you can walk to SM, it takes about 10 min to walk there. If youwant to take a taxi,it will cost 50-70P due to road construction.
