“Excellent hotel; but confused management.”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights upon our arrival in Cebu after a LONG trip from the U.S. First 2 negatives. No shuttle from the airport; and the hotel never responded to our e-mail inquiry about this. The front desk staff also confused our type of room reserved with another type. Otherwise, a new, beautiful hotel conveniently situated near the SM shopping mall. The lobby is huge and well decorated. The pool area is simple but very attractive.

Wow, what a hotel! Everything is classy and looks great, which is pretty amazing in a city like Cebu. The pool is wonderful. The staff gets the highest grade from me and the mall next door(sm mall) is THE place to shop.

Got this place on Agoda via Tripadvisor for a great price. A mate booked in advance via a travel agency 2 months prior and got a suite at $130usd/night.

Bottom line is - great deals can be found within this hotel.

What impressed me was because friends were staying in other hotels when the earthquake hit. The Radisson was professional and made announcements to inform guests to evacuate the building or to avoid using lifts etc. Whereas a check at other top ranked hotels showed that they did no such thing and left guests to fend for themselves.

Something I like about the Radisson Blu is the location to the shopping mall. Right next to where you stay you get plenty of choices with regards to food and shopping.

The buffet in the hotel is also regarded as one of the best in Cebu.

However a word of advice for those arriving early like I did - if u want a place to rest , book an extra night for it. Forget about getting an early check in at 6am. The earliest they can check you in is 10am. If you wish to check in at 5am/6am you will have to pay half the walk in rack rate which I did at 4,000pesos. You can pay 4,000pesos for a night with breakfast in advance and save you all the hassle. Don't even try "tipping" front desk - it didn't work.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Smoking floors are noisier than non-smoking wones and consider spending a bit of money on the suites...

Using a popular discount website we got rooms for P5,100 which is very very cheap for such a lovely hotel. It stands practical comparison to any 4/5* start city hotel I've stayed in. Got everything you would expect and the the main buffet restaurant is tremendous and very reasonably priced. I estimate you could fit a 737 in the lobby so it's not short on a bit grandeur too.

It is a no brainer to stay here if the city location suits you.

A great way to top off two weeks of diving. Had a huge corner room with three large windows, several closets and drawers, mini – fridge, TV, central air that works well, WIFI in room that is excellent, desk, walk-in shower, kettle, bathrobes, etc. Ordered room service and it was yummy. Food is same price as what we paid at dive resorts.

Bed is comfy, two pillows each with extra in the closet, nice linens, soap, shampoo, bath gel, hairdryer all there for you to use. Lots of hot water and great water pressure. Had a very quiet night. We opted out of the breakfast buffet but did have the dinner buffet (sushi was delicious) and lunch - food was excellent. Mall is very close and has Starbucks, pharmacy, book store, etc. A first rate hotel with super service.

Came here on business trip and stayed on Executive floor. The staff, in particular Rose and Francis, were truly outstanding. Th hotel is new, modern and clean and excellent value. I would strongly recommend this to anyone travelling on business to Cebu.

In my experience, this is a solid 4-star hotel by international standard and, if comfort and convenience is what you are after, you may consider this place with confidence.

A popular business hotel, we stayed here for a weekend holiday and it worked out pretty well. Location right across the street one of the most-popular mall in town is a plus, with easy access to restaurants and eateries plus a safe place to kill some empty hours. Top sights and other destinations in town are at short taxi drives away.

Only warning, the pool area, at the street level, is adjacent to the highway and the parking lot of the mall, making it hard to find a quite moment in the day due to traffic/street noise.

In short, this is a real 4-star hotel conveniently located in Cebu City. it worked well for us as a tourists and we would consider returning here if back in town.
