Got the small room which is good for four people but they allowed me to rent it for 500 pesos only. Stayed here for over night. They have a restaurant at the ground floor. The place is accessible and close to the bus terminal and the city proper.

I am back in the hotel again! It's always a pleasure to write reviews for this establishment. I won't make this review long as my flight is due in the next 4 hours.

the room was small but good enough for two. Rate during our stay was Php 900/night for two persons excluding breakfast. If you're planning to buy Durian fruit, they are not allowing the fruit to be taken inside your room because of the smell. The pension house is located along the highway where tricycles are available. They have a restaurant... More

We stayed at Wayfarer for one night before our family reunion. The room was very small, as well as the bathroom. It was very hard to navigate in there. That being said, the price we paid was well worth the cost! The staff were great, and the restaurant attached was also good.

Staff were courteous, gentle and very helpful. They endeavor as much as they can to help their customers in ways they can especially in transportation, as transportation in Butuan could be difficult without knowledge on the specific routes public vehicles take on a regular basis. What can I say, apart from the staff, it's the food that ultimately caught my... More

Cons : Cockroaches came out of the aircon vent . Water pressure is low and the water has a rusty and metallic smell. Lights are dimmer than when we stayed here several years ago. No complimentary bottled water. Few outlets for charging gadgets

My first choice of accommodation every time I'm in Butuan, and that is every 1 to 2 months. The rooms are not spacious but not too cramped up either. However, the single beds are too narrow, so you'd be better off in the rooms with bigger beds. The room and bathroom are clean. What I love here is you don't... More
