“Healthy Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

If you are up for healthy and affordable food, this is the right place. They have a restaurant that serves eat-all-you-can fresh/raw vegetables and fruits which you can mix and match to your taste. They also have soups and fresh fruit juices and shakes from 11am to 2pm. The place is not that elegant but it is clean and simple.

An unexpected early arrival around 9 am and straightaway to be given a room, that is what I call service. The hotel looks not great from the outside, but as soon as you walk in, everything changes for the better. I inspected a few rooms, and especially the newly renovated rooms,, bsiness as well as VIP, are great value for money. I choose for the VIP, a spacious room with TV, free wifi and phone, coffee maker. Clean bathroom, well equipped, very friendly staff. Good location in centre of town. The breakfast buffet is simple, yet adequate. In short, nice place to stay.

Room Tip: Preferrably choose a newly renovated room, by the way, I have not seen the ones that are not renovat...

If you like old stuffs, and you don’t mind a dusty Bed, dusty furniture, and dusty lampshades. The Sleep Quality is not here. You can also easily find some small insects. During my 3 Day stay in Cagayan de Oro, I only stayed here for a night instead of 3 nights. I’ll check around Divisoria and found a far more better place at lower cost. While the staff here are wonderful, friendly, helpful and courteous.

I paid $40 a night and they put me in a room where the only window was in the process of being covered up by anotherbuilding being built two inches away outside my window. The hotel meets Philippino standards but not international standards. The lighting in the room was poor, no hot water in the bathroom in the morning, and the restaurant downstairs is very expensive for what little they offer. There was a party going in the middle of the hallway on my floor where my room was, and people were talking loud until past midnight. The place is a tourist trap for the international travelor.

I speak that dialect of the place that makes it easy to really communicate with the hotel staff.
Mornings are always pleasant as they greet you Maayong Aga or good morning. Food excellent. In fact I learn one recipe and that is SINIGANG NA CORNED BEEF. The staff and hotel manager are very accommodating - there i no problem I got that they were not able to provide with appropriate solutions.
By and large, their service, as far as am concern, is first class. Though the hotel is quite old, cleanliness to them is the order of the day.

Come and find it out for yourself.
