Near the airport and malls like BQ, Altura etc. Cheap price with breakfast na which i like coz it's so yummy. Kahit roadside yung location it doesn't matter kasi comfy yung bed, makakasleep ka parin ng maayos.

The attraction for me were the claims of super-fast internet (it was good, not super) and transfers for the ferry or airport (close to both, but you only get one transfer). Wifi was usually strong in my room. Good breakfast, nice lobby and dinning area. Looks to be a reasonably new property, plain and simple, clean. The only complaints about... More

The staff was extremely helpful and kind. They were doing the best they could. We booked a motobike through them so it made things easier and our laundry was done perfectly. The beds were ok and the room fine to sleep. Bathroom small and old.

It's a budget hotel, but a perfectly decent option if you need to stay in the city. The immediate area isn't great (not many restaurant or shopping options very close) but it's conveniently near to airport and ferry port. Breakfast is included and good value (Western or Filipino) but service can be a bit slow to arrive. Rooms are simple... More

I stayed here just for a night and all I can say is that you get what you paid for. The place is near the airport, near malls, near the main road, and it is very accessible to churches. For just 900, I got a decent place to stay, a hearty plated breakfast, and an accomodating staff. If your looking... More

The staff was really nice and accommodating. Plus points for being near to the pier & airport. However, there's no enough wall sockets to charge your gadgets especially if there's two people in the room.
