Robe"s Pension House
Ranked #10 of 83 Cebu City B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I seldom travel in luxury and this place is what we were really looking for at the time we stayed in Cebu City. It's quite new at that time so it is clean. It is a very basic inn but I did not really expect a lot because we only paid P800.00 per night for a room for two. Good thing it is right in the center of the city and just walking distance to fuente osmena where we tried the Crown Regency's Sky Adventure and edge coaster. We had a good night's sleep here. Definitely a good choice for budget travellers and if you are just looking for a place to spend the night with while touring around Cebu City most of the day.

This is a really nice place to stay in Cebu. Rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. There is a TV, free bottle of water and good aircon. It is in a good location and was quiet. But by far the best bit is the security guard who is cheerful and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend this place.

Firstly this pension house was my second choice coz we always stay @roseate whenever my parents visits Cebu. I already made a reservation there but I forgot to ask about their senior citizen discounts, so I emailed them back w/ regard to the discount and they only gives 10%. And when I asked that isn't it supposed to be a 20% discount? Since we get to avail the 20% discount in legazpi,cdo,bacolod & bora, but roseate just replied that the only give 10%! So I cancelled my reservation there & booked w/ Robe's.

Ok back to review, the booking process was hassle free! A friend of mine in cebu called their office to ask about the senior discount (20% wc they do give) and booked us in the 3rd floor since they were full at the moment but promise to change it to the first floor since my parents are oldies =) When we arrived at the pension house the guard on duty helped us get our bags from the taxi to the lobby and to the room & smiling while doing this! The receptionist inform us that our has been change to the 1st floor (at the back of the lobby) which is a THUMBS UP for me!!! There was a freebie 1bottle of mineral water which is a first for me on a pension house accommodation. Ok for the room, all I could say is it was clean, good lighting, flat screen TV (that i like since i get to watch movies from my usb), clean CR even if it was a bit small but got no problems w/ it, cold aircon, a cabinet rack that have hangers, & a good comfy bed. The location of the pension house is excellent since it's just a walking distance to the main road where jeepney's for SM/Ayala/Sto.Nino/uptown area passes by and there's a lot of TAXI's just outside the pension house which the guard readily hailed for you. There's also a bunch of carenderia's of your choosing if on a budget & a few bakeshop.

Overall this is an excellent choice for a pension house coz its a value for your money. And I'll be staying here again!!

Room Tip: request a room on the lower floors since there's no elevator

My girlfriend and me stayed there together with another couple last january 2013.

The rooms are little bit small, but they were clean. The bathroom was ok also. Service is ok, though i have had better service in other pension house in the same neighbourhood.

One disadvantage is that there is no elevator, so if you have a heavy bag, you need to carry that up. For the rest it is basic but ok value for its price ...

Reservation through emails is a breeze; very comfortable and I even requested to have our rooms at second floor. They do also entertain questions and replies within the day!
Don't just rely on them asking what jeep code to take. They will give you an advice to take a taxi instead 80% of the time.
When we arrived, our toilet is clogged but it was fixed immediately within 30 minutes. Fast and quick turnaround!
Their phone lines might have crosstalks or is not properly designated. I was calling our friends' room but I was lead to a different room; and someone called our room but they were intended for the reception.
Very helpful attendants and receptionists plus the guard greets you and opens the door for you; seems like a hotel.
I think their location and price is truly a winner!
Walking distance from Fuente Osmena Circle (about 20mins), to Colon St (about 20mins), to Cebu South Bus Terminal (about 20mins). Jeeps are everywhere at Osmena Blvd. One ride to SM Cebu and Ayala Center, to Lahug etc.

Clean room. 22" flat screen TV with cable. WIFI on every floor. I took hot shower on ground floor for 800 pesos instead of 700 for cold shower. No restaurant, but they can deliver chemical coffee and noodles to your room. Brewed coffee is available in JL Suites, just across the street. Bakeries and local restaurants in walking distance [24 hours]. Staff very helpful and friendly.

It's a newly built place so the whole building looks great, easy to find and located near a lot of tourist spots in metro Cebu.
Reservation thru email went smoothly, thanks to Ritchie for always replying promptly! :)
the whole building is clean, starting from the reception, to the stairs and hallways up to the rooms, we booked two rooms and bothvare spotless! Aircons are great, TV's kinda small but hey it's great too, they even have channels like cinemax, syfy, hbo and crime & investigation! We can hear noises from othe next room or from the hallway but nothing that could have atopped us from getting a good night sleep!
If you order, it can take at least 30 mins though just to have pancakes so make sure you order ahead of time, nothing fancy for the food.. but it's also not expensive!
Staff are attentive but they could use more smiles.. the guard they call chief is the best, always out there to open our car doors and to carry our bags!
All in all, I give this place a thumbs up and will stay here for my future trips in cebu.. for 900php/night, I've got more than what i paid for! :))
