Good for a budget hotel. The desk personnel were accommodating and rooms were generally clean. If you are looking for a place just to rest after a long day of touring or shopping (walking distance between two large malls), the hotel is ideal for you. It is not a fancy hotel but a pleasant one.

Room small and not so cozy. Fan was very loud. There was no window in room. If you are there only for short stay it can be ok, but for longer stay it would be not so comfortable. It was my first night on Philipines.

Good location, clean room. Staff was friendly. Just for those who would inquire for early check-in but there would be no room available they don't have a comfort room to freshen up. I hope the management can do something about it. But anyways thank you for the comfortable sleep.

This hotel stay was after a 4.5 hour van ride from Toledo in the rain. My first gripe was that I was asked for my passport as a form of ID and they would photo copy it....provided another ID instead. Second is common, but you have to pull your electricity card/key from the room every time you leave. So I...

The Front Desk staffs are like robots. They DON'T smile. One guest after the other saying their phraseology. The room is clean but the bed is hard that could give you back pain. Wifi is disappointing. Toilet is bad. No shower curtain or rags. Breakfast was poor. There are only three choices. I approached the guy in the bar and...

Not worth to recommend. The Beds are hard that can give you a back pain. It is not relaxing but your paying too much. They turn off their service elevator during midnight. I woke up to go down to buy a water, Im staying at the fifth floor for 12 hrs on a premium room. You cannot imagine if I...

After reading some of the other reviews of budget hotels in Cebu City, I was not really expecting much, but the price was right at 1,380 pesos ($29.94 US). I made my reservation online and showed up the next day. I really like the fact that the room rates include breakfast. I also found the room to be surprisingly clean....
