This hotel is located very near the airport (our taxi fare to the airport was only Php 62). It is next to 2 malls for last minute pasalubong shopping, and plenty of places to dine. We were given a room on the 2nd floor with no view. The room is claustrophobic (very, very small), with 2 double beds, with basic...

We have been in Island Stay Hotel in Puerto Princesa and it was ok but here in Cebu never again. Too much expensive for one night. The place is horrible nothing around only a lot of caos. Wifi only at the lobby, no breakfast, nothing at all. We have been much better in the big hotel, nice room, cheaper and...

Couldn't sleep for a minute! We took a night at this "hotel" cause i was very near the airport. very dirty noisy and smelly. The staff would not take you seriously. They placed us i a non smoking room which appeared to be a very smoked one.

We needed a hotel near the airport for an early flight. It was a bit like overnighting in a lock-up garage. Very basic. Only redeeming feature was that the shower worked well and produced a temperature other than freezing ... a rare event in the Philippines

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...

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...

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.

So many hotels in Mactan Cebu, never have problem finding one. Prices are competing. Searching for the best price and quality would not be a problem. Cebu Island is became popular for visitors lately not only close to the airport also is much safer than in Cebu City I choose this hotel because is just 50 meters away from my...

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...
