I booked this room because it's very near the airport just about 5 mins, staff are accommodating & attentive, if ever that I'll come back to cebu, I'll look for another place. Surprisingly the toilet is clean but the bed, pillows & bedsheets are old and not washed well. It's a cheap inn however if you have other options, don't... More

Stayed here for few hours only before taking our flight the next day. We arrived about 12 midnight and I would have walked out if only not for minor children who were so tired already. The room is very dirty, unsafe with foul smell. There was no point to complain about the state of the room because I knew they... More

We stayed here overnight to catch an early flight out to manila the following day. The place is spartan, no frills, in and out motel. Very near the airport, walking distance to restos and malls. Very quiet place considering the proximity to a busy highway. Nothing special, just a place to rest your head for the night.

We had flight cancelled with Cebu Pacific and had to stay somewhere nearby to come back in the airport next morning, that's why we chose ISH in Mactan. They only had an extra large room available which is pretty expensive even for the Philippines city hostel standards (2000 php or ~38€). So we checked in only because we didn't know... More
