Fuente Oro Business Suites
Ranked #32 of 83 Cebu City B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The room had everything that you would expect for this price (clean nice sheets, good bed, a tv and so on), but nothing more. The bathroom was worn and the breakfast was not anything to write home about. They were out of toast. One weird thing was that there were dirty dishes in the hallways. The wifi didn't work much. How ever, our room was very bright with big windows in two directions and the service was okay.

Room Tip: Corner room was bright.

No frills, just a high-quality OK-value hotel in uptown Cebu. Comfy beds, good aircon, flatscreen cable TV. Suite bathrooms could be modernized considering the price. Breakfast was out of toast. Nice views from rooftop.

I was here for 4 nights in late October of 2012. When I first checked in I was a little underwhelmed by the room I must admit. Two very small single beds which at first I thought I could push together.

I decided to ask at the desk about other room options. This room was only $36 a night U.S. but no refer or coffee in room. For another ~$15 I could get a Jr. Suite so I jumped on it. Good move and nice big room (rm 404). Breakfast was included and pretty good food with a western option.

The staff was very nice and helpful. There is a coffee shop in the lobby which was good since that is the WiFi area as well. No wifi in room in other words. Not a deal breaker for me and seemed to be common in the Philippines.

Two guards out front at all times. Easy to get a taxi and after a few days that was my first choice unless I was walking to Mango Square or Robinson Mall (10 minutes away max).

The actual street the Hotel is on would be a bit scary for some but I was never hassled actually.

No safe in rooms if that is important to you. All in all a good experience. Cheers.

Room Tip: I would upgrade to above the standard or even deluxe room if you budget allows. Cheers. Room 404 i...

The whole hotel seems to be made mainly for filipinos or other short people. There isn't a lot of walking area (we had a superior room) and the facilities are small. The bathroom included. The water pressure is okay, but the shower head seems old and worn so it doesn't come out even. You can adjust the temperature to what you prefer with the handles. Toilet flushes ok, toilet paper provided is quite thin and runs out quickly. The sink's drain has a problem, it doesn't drain that quickly and some water remains in the sink for a while.

Our room had a twin and a single bed. If you're over 6ft tall, the single bed is too small, maybe the twin bed is ok. The mattresses are of average thickness, but way too hard. The bed sheets supplied are thin, but we didn't try asking for extra bed sheets.

The AC is a window-type, so it makes a lot of noise. But the thing that really annoyed us is the ticking of water drops on top of the ac, probably from the drain of the ac on the floor above us. It was really annoying at night.

The room we got didn't come with a refrigerator so we requested for one, apparently it costs P200 extra/night. We also heard that if an extra person wants to stay in a room, you have to pay extra for them too.

The breakfast was so-so. The menu in the room isn't updated, so don't expect to order a spanish omelet. For some reason the menu on the way to the restaurant isn't accurate either, they don't have chicken filet as it says on the sign. They also serve this disgusting menu that includes belgian waffles and a burger! Gross! Who eats meat with belgian waffles? Then again, they also serve fish so yeah.

The room comes with a flatscreen lcd tv, but it's mostly filipino channels.

The internet is good, great signal in the room. There's a router for every floor so you can always stay connected.

The location is good, (small) shopping mall and lots of great shops and fastfood restaurants nearby.

Housekeeping is below average because sometimes we have to ask the front desk to clean it, they always provide clean towels, soap and water.

Another plus is a water dispenser in the lobby near the elevator (ours was on the 3rd floor, some floors don't have a water dispenser). Really great if you bought some instant coffee or noodles because it has hot water and of course cold water too.

The staff is really friendly and the guard helped us hail a cab when we needed to go somewhere.

Overall, this hotel wouldn't be my first choice of accommodation because of the total ambiance and the price.

Room Tip: I suppose if you get a room on the fifth floor (the hotel is up to the 6th, but only one room--to my...

The Fuente Oro is a great option for the mid-range traveller in Cebu. Our room had nice soft (but not too soft) foam matresses - and gave us great quality sleep after hard beds so common in Asia. Other than that, the features of the room were unremarkable - but everything was fine and the room gives you what you need. Couldn't get connected to the wifi on our floor (it was available, but wouldn't connect), but no problem getting on wifi in the lobby downstairs. The rooftop is nice - breakfast is served up here or you can bring a beer up here in the evening. Breakfast was great, especially considering it was included in the quite-economical price of the room.

My friend and I were about to lose hope in looking for a room for a night since most of the hotels in the vicinity of Cebu proper were already fully booked until we ran into Fuente Oro Business Suites.


The only available room was their Superior the costs P1,500 a night good for three people with free breakfast for two to be served on the Roof deck.


The room was small but it was all right. The beds were really small but it sufficed. The bathroom was small as well but it was decent even if it looked a little old. Almost all of the stuff inside the room were small in size but what's important was we have a place to spend the night and it was clean.


The following day, our breakfast were served on their roof deck but it was not outside. It was inside that looked like a function room. Their selections were delicious. Simple but complete. I had their Bacon with scrambled egg, garlic rice and coffee. It was good for P1,500 a night. However, it could have been better if they served it outside. I think it with be a pleasurable experience.

Fuente oro business suites is a new, cozy hotel at fuente osmena area. the room is small, but neat and clean and has all basic amenities. the service is also good. wifi is accessible at the lobby. the hotel is ideal for business trips. bath soap and shampoo are rather small; and the room has no personal ref. upgrading these items will surely add value. breakfast is basic, but is okay. Overall a decent hotel for its value.

Room Tip: High floor for quiet room
