Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

Its great. Rooms are comfortable, hotel is nearby a coffee shop, a convenience store and an atm machine. Location is what I like most about the hotel since the entertainment centers are just 5 mns away by taxi. Guards are corteous to even hail you a cab everytime you go out.

We stayed at the Dohera for 3 nights, visiting friends who live in Mandaue City. It is a decent hotel, good for a short visit, with helpful staff and comfortable beds. We did not try the pool, as it looked small and was just under the building/next to the car park. The breakfast buffet was good, the service was fast, and our only complaint would be that the shower only had hot water in the morning--unfortunate, as after a day in the sticky heat a solid shower would have been nice!

Immediately smelled of cigarette smoke once stepped in hotel hallway. Toilet is a bit weird because there's no proper door, only has a glass door to shower and toilet, but the sink is open. TV is tiny, channels are okay. There's 7-11 outside. 24-hour restaurant downstairs, don't try the carbonara, it was so-so.

Check-in was speedy and our room on the 4th floor was clean and spacious but the bathroom area was a little oddly arranged - the glass door made it a little awkward getting to the toilet. The whole floor and our room smelled very smoky - I wish we'd asked to change it - assuming there are non-smoking floors.The room had a kettle and cups but no coffee but did have a couple of bottles of water. The walls were a bit thin as we could hear the TV in the room next door. The advertised hi-speed wi-fi was only usable in the hotel foyer/restaurant. We ate dinner and breakfast in the hotel - both were only OK. We were asking reception about getting a meter taxi to the airport and they offered us a free transfer because their shuttle was just about to leave to do an airport pick-up - excellent service!

Room Tip: If you don't smoke, ask if there are non-smoking floors

The hotel is actually more than decent and the rooms are very clean and spacious. The hotel lobby was nice and the staff were very accommodating too. Checking in didn't take so long and the receptionists were very polite in answering our queries.

The food was okay, more than average I should say. The taste was fine and tolerable.

The location is a bit far from the CBD of Cebu City. A half an hour ride to the airport, same with the big malls in the city. There were various modes of transportation just outside the hotel. Taxis and jeepneys pass by the area.

I would say that this is an okay hotel. Not luxurious nor cheap. It would be good enough for tourists travelling who just wants a decent and nice place to stay.

My flight to Siargao was cancelled and I was accommodated in this hotel to stay the night. I heard Siargao flight cancellations are a regular occurence, because the airline cannot fill the whole plane with passengers and it would be cheaper to put them in a hotel than continue with the flight. My point with this statement is that Dohera, being the defualt hotel of the airline in such incidents, is pretty decent. Jeepneys and cabs going to major points of Cebu City are available just along the hotel frontage. I tried food room service; it was fast but average in taste. The staff are friendly and accommodating (willing to answer any question, even those related to our cancelled flight).

Flight got cancelled and the airline booked us into this hotel for 3 nights including complimentary meals. We were a large group so we got to stay in two presidential rooms. The size of the rooms were pretty impressive with dining and living areas plus two ensuite bedrooms. The bath design however in the masters was pretty bad as when taking a shower the water would run along the tiles and unto the floor outside the bath. There were no door stoppers between the wall and the door. This led to the door knob touching the wall and locking itself. This was a big concern since we have kids with us. Meals were ok but ate out at times as they were serving the same food. They said they had a gym but when my boyfriend went there he said it wasn't really a gym. Pool was a plus for the kids. Staff were nice. It's a 20-30 minute cab ride to SM and the airport. Overall it was a fine place to stay while waiting for our flight or maybe an overnight stay but not a place I would choose to stay longer.
