The location is near some cafés a d restaurant. The room be booked is a triple room. It was kinda big and spacious. The room is clean and the AC was able to cool the room up. The CR was disappointing. The water pressure is low. The shower head is busted and the flush is not working. *some hookers are...

Most of my meetings would be in the area of Gen. Maxillom Avenue in Cebu Cty. I also knew that my three days would be long and hectic so I had to choose a place that was centrally located and affordable. Pricewise, nothing could beat. For what I paid, the room was far bigger than in some pension houses. Airconditioning...

I have stayed here twice! The rooms are what they say it is. Its budget! they are clean but old. Some of the taps leaked but not to bad. I have been in a twin room and a double room. It is walking distance to everything. Great coffee house across the road and Robinson mall and restaurants are all close....

I was in Cebu for a single night. Like what a reviewer mentioned, it does have a sad, gloomy atmosphere to it and all the other issues with it. Although I didn't stay when there was a nearby construction site, I still thought the aircon was loud as heck. But I still had a good sleep nonetheless. Poor locking system...

I am here for more then 2 months and I must say that it's becoming a nightmare to stay in this hotel. Most of the time the hot water doesn't work (sometimes it happens 3 times a week) specially in the evening when you really feel that you want to take a hot shower. Even when the water it's warm...

We stayed there for 3 days and the experience is a total disaster. AMBIANCE. The lobby is just fine. It's average. They gave us room 1 at the ground floor. I was really expecting a very relaxing place. But when we opened the lights, tadah! It not what I was expecting. The room is unclean. I thought maybe someone just...

it sounds to good to be true, Wifi, warm water and aircon. for 750P, in the end only the aircon works. We had mice in our room and had to remove more than 10 big cockroaches, after that we had to spray our room with cockroache killer spray.
