We needed a place to have a short rest before our flight the next morning, thus, we booked this hotel which is just 3-5min to the airport via the taxi. Very convenient ; near to the airport and there are restaurants nearby across the street. The room is clean and comfortable.

I had read some other reviews about this hotel and thought the extra savings would be nice as we saved about 200 pesos difference from another hotel a block away. I should have coughed up the extra money. The other reviewers were right about the check in time. Me and my wife got there about 12PM and weren't allowed the...

We stayed at Island Stay for 2 nights while we visited Cebu City. It's a good value as far as hotels in Cebu go, but it is a no frills hotel. The rooms are very simple but clean, the amenities are minimal (wifi works and there is a TV but not even an iron in the room). The staff is...

Good for short-staying travelers whose purpose is to be at the middle of city. Closed to Ayala Center where we found everything from dining to shopping. 7/11 convenient store few steps away at the left and Cafe Namoo and Fat Cow Restaurant at the right. The theme of this hotel is cute and simple. Nothing special but you get what...

The room is small and there is no small table to put your things to but if you're looking for a night to sleep in, this is a good choice since this is close to restaurants and a big mall — very convenient. The wifi is okay but sometimes, it can't reach the room.

My wife and I attended the IEC 2016 in Cebu . I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the congress venue. This is also the cheapest I can get on that area. I was a little bit disappointed when we arrived at this hotel. The hotel is actually located on the second floor of a commercial building surrounded...

There is really nothing extraordinary about this hotel. The staff is ok and it is very near Ayala Center in Cebu but aside from that there is not much going on here. The rooms are really small even for a budget hotel and have exceptionally thin walls so it's not conducive to a relaxing stay. If you're staying in Cebu...

We stayed here last Oct 6. We originally reserved the medium which is suppose to be good for two but the bed was a bit small for us. We upgraded to a bigger room which is more spacious and more convenient. What I love about this place is the location. This is near a lot of restaurants, malls and spa....
