Honeycomb Tourist Inn
Ranked #25 of 35 Hotels in Dumaguete City
Reviewed November 24, 2011

this hotel has historical background, so it looks like an old mansion from outside with a touch of modern design inside, but the old structure remains the same.the old door the old staircase, the old floor, all adding up to the beauty of the hotel.The staff specially Gerlyn is very nice to talk to.and knows the city very well.The coffee shop serves good breakfast specially the local chorizo.is a must try.the room is spacious for 2 and at a budget price,altho there's some noise from nearby club in the early evening, it still provides good quality sleep because of the cold aircon.the place is just across the boulevard where early in the morning people are walking and jogging, and watch the beautiful sun rise.It's also near shopping mall like lee mall,and all the eateries around the area.and silliman university museum.It's 15 minutes to the airport by tricycle.very nice place indeed.

This was my second time to stay at this hotel. The location is great because you are facing the sea. But dont get me wrong because you wont see the view from your room, instead you have to go out to see it. It's a nice place to stay as staff are very accomodating. But one negative experience i had was when i got back from my room, they tidied my room which is great. But when i looked at the sheets i saw droppings of insects! And its near the pillow! It really gave me a bad impression of the hotel but what can i say, its just an old house converted to a hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights and wished we could stay longer. The location is perfect, just along the dreamy boulevard. We did not have any idea where to go around so we asked the staff. They were very helpful and accommodating.

Wifi is free! TV could use an upgrade. And there are spots where mobile network is not available (not sure if it's a good thing or not)

Overall, I'd stay here again. Worth every peso paid if not more.

We stayed in this hotel as our based in dumaguete as we are going to Apo Island for snorkling. The hotel is an old house renovated into a hotel, so hotel rooms are of different sizes and cut. I feel the location is excellent but the rooms needs improvement, bathroom, mosquitoes and cleanliness. The room gets noisy too as u can hear the music from the bars outside. The only thing good is front desk service same with the restaurant staff.

Honeycomb has the amenities of a hotel and the coziness of home. What's interesting about the place is that it used to be the mansion of a rich family before it was converted into a tourist inn. The location is perfect for romantic souls who want a fabulous view of the sea and the boulevard. The restaurant is the ideal spot at night, where you can unwind while the sea breeze cools you. Although the room we occupied is not in top shape, it's cozy and reasonably priced. Some amenities such as the shower and television could stand a little improvement. What was so nice about the hotel was the courteous front desk staff, notably Marlyn. She made our stay so memorable! What I didn't like was the way we were treated at the restaurant. It's apparent that the restaurant staff practice 'selective courtesy'. When we walked into the restaurant, the restaurant crew didn't even bother to greet us; but when an American couple came, they were just too eager to greet the foreign guests with the most welcoming greetings and a smile. I wish they would be more consistent with the way they treat their guests--regardless of race or perceived economic status. In addition, if you're a foodie, look elsewhere if you want great-tasting meals.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms fronting the sea, although they are a bit costlier.

We stayed in the family room and it was okay. The room was rather small being a family room and the bathroom could do with a refurb. The bathroom did not enticed me to have a shower. The breakfast was okay, but they allowed people to smoke in the restaurant. Also, we did not get told the correct information about the ferries and this made us wait for a ferry for 3 hours.

We are spending 4 days at the Honeycomb Inn. Nice and clean rms, The staff make u feel at home. Perfect location, on the Boulevard close too many restaurants and beautiful to walk on Promenade and take many pictures. This is the place we will stay at whenever we visit Dumaguete.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor very quiet and comfortable room.
