Check-in: When I arrived, no one was in the front desk. The guard just called the lady on duty. Looked like she just leaves there because she was not in her uniform but rather in her comfortable house clothes. She was polite and courteous in asking me my printed booking confirmation and asked me for a P200.00 deposit, refundable upon check-out. She issued an Official Receipt right away and handed my room key.
The Room: Room assigned to me was in the 3rd floor and there's no lift in the building. I chose a Matrimonial Bed. It was okay but linen was too thin that you can even read what's written in the bed tag. Pillows were good, firm but soft. Floor was dusty. I even scrubbed it with the rag they provided. There was a TV (CRT) but you have to get the remote control from the front desk. A/C worked well. Room has a window with very thin curtain. Made me woke-up early.
Toilet and Bath: Toilet walls, floor tiles, toilet bowl were clean. No hot and cold shower but has great water pressure. It has a dirty, broken pail with a dirty dipper in it. Don't know if someone will have a guts using it. Towel provided was thick and clean. A very small soap and a 1 tissue roll also were free.
Location: Walking distance from Cebu-Mactan Ferry warf. Unitop Supermarket is just beside the building. La Nueva Supermarket and Jollibee are just infront and there are lots of bakeries and stores outside. Nice Restos like AA BBQ, malls like Gaisano and Marina Mall are just 1 jeepney ride away for P8.00 only. Airport is approximately 15 mins. away...depending on traffic situation.
Overall, it was a good choice for a backpacker that's not so picky about hotel amenities. For just P725.00 a night, I can't complain.
