I booked this hotel for our Cebu trip because of a friend's recommendation. Though the price is a little high compared to some budget hotels, we decided to give it a try.
Price: We got a family room that can accommodate 3 people. The price is Php 2,380 with buffet breakfast. There are more affordable hotels in Mandaue but since its a recommendation and apparently a new one, my husband agreed to book it.
Location: No complains at all. Its 7kms only away from the airport and it took us roughly 10 minutes to reach our destination. We travelled on a Sunday so there was no traffic. And its infront of a mall with several restaurants around.
Room: The room is quite big. They followed an industrial/rugged theme so the walls are not painted or if they are, the color is similar to cement (grayish) but it gives a nice vibe to the room. They only have the basic: beds, a table and a chair, a flat screen tv with cable, an aircon, a landline phone, reading lamp, a coffee area without any coffee offered. They also have complimentary water. The family room is facing the highway, so if you are sensitive to sound, better get the standard one as you can still hear the cars from the road.
Comfort Room: The comfort room is nice as they separated the shower area from the toilet. My only concern: the towels are no longer white. The color is already off white. Im not sure though if the original color is like that but I would prefer to have bright white colored towels.
Bed: Just the way I wanted it. Not too soft,not to hard. With comforter and soft pillows. I had a good night sleep.
I will have another post about the buffet breakfast.
