I booked 2 Deluxe Rooms at Harold's for my Family's trip to Cebu. They expected us and the Check-In process was a breeze. The staff greets you with warm smiles and are very welcoming. The Hotel seems pretty new, it can't be more than 2 years old. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. With iPod docks and flat-screen televisions. A pleasant surprise was that one of our rooms had a balcony, one of only three in the hotel.
It's located 5-10 minutes from the Ayala Center. Also nearby are a number of well-known Restaurants in Cebu such as AA BBQ, Ching Palace, Chika-an and Golden Cowrie. It's easy getting around by the Jeepneys which pass right outside the Hotel. If you aren't the adventurous type, you should stick to the Cabs. The friendly staff will be glad to assist you with either.
After a long day in the City, you can cap off your night with a few drinks at their Rooftop Bar. It's look and feel would have no problem standing next to the high end, big name Hotel Bars in Makati. They have a good selection of drinks and snacks, all of the food and drinks are very reasonably priced.
The breakfast buffet was good, we stayed for two nights and had a different selection of breakfast items for both days. The best thing about this hotel, other than the Rooftop Bar would have to be the Staff. Very friendly and accomodating, willing to go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable.
Overall a Great Hotel, with only the lack of a Swimming Pool to round up that vacation feel. But, this was made to be a Business Hotel. It's close proximity to the Business Park and Downtown areas is a huge plus.
