Friendly staff, clean rooms. Decent place to stay for the price. Centrally located on Mango Avenue in downtown Cebu City. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars. The entire surrounding area is very busy and noisy.

I spent quite a bit of time here. Roughly 2 weeks. The hotel itself is a 3 star in the physical sense. That being said, the staff are painting, cleaning all the time. What makes it a 5 star are the staff. Friendly people that go out of the way to help. I must have asked dozens of questions and...

The hallway is boring and dark, be prepared to walk upstairs because they don't have elevator, the front desk and staff are accommodating though. The food is boring, and overpriced. Lacks presentation. They need to provide bigger soaps and vday!

Stayed there at room 204. Checked in pass 7 in the evening. My house is just a ride away but I need to stay there for a night just to change mode after a very long and tiring week. I would comment as a former hotelier, First and foremost I didn't like the guy who send us upstairs for the...

This hotel is only good for one to two night stay-in my opinion. The price is less than a thousand per night, but I have stayed in a hotel in dumaguete with the same price and it is way better than this. Here in sampaguita, the room is small, the tv isn't flat screen and the pillow case and linen...

Those who are traveling in a tight budget, this place will fit your need. You can get a night stay at PHP 699. A deposit of PHP 500 is required like any other hotels. But you might want to request that your room is not the ones facing the road coz you might not be able to sleep well because...

Thank you for your kind review. The hotel is located in the busy street of Cebu, so there are restaurants, bars, malls and hospital near us. We are happy that you had a good stay in our hotel. God bless!

The room was clean and the staff were very attentive to our needs. It was our first time in Cebu and were very thankful for their hospitality. The location is close to a lot of place to dine with. I highly recommend Sampaguita suite if your going for a quick vacation in Cebu on a tight budget.

Stayed here for a night with friends before heading to Oslob. Booked via agoda and the rate we got was cheap. Cheap rate but the value we get is beyond expectation. The room is clean and what we loved most is the bed linen. Very soft and clean making our sleep much comfortable. Wifi in the room is fantastic, fast...

Visiting on a budget this is the perfect place to stay. Clean rooms Exceptional staff. Always with a smile and "Good morning or evening sir". Even joking with Jerry that one day I would get inside w/o him beating me to the door. I feel staff goes above and beyond all expectations.

Thank you for your review. We take every review seriously and investigate every comment made. All our rooms have towels. When you checked-in, the towels were not yet delivered, but the staff put them inside your rooms. For the soap and shampoo, those are really not included, but we have a shop at the restaurant area where you can buy...
