Place to be when you want to stay close to the airport. Otherwise, this is not the hotel I would like to stay in. I'm not the kind of customer who demands 5-star treatment, but I found their service was not as good compared to other hotels I've stayed in . We had to make 2 follow-up calls just to...

Imagine sleeping at night then a cockroach lands on your pillow. That's what happened to me last night I stayed here. I hunted the creeper down, smashed it, and left it on the floor for the hotel management to see (if they care). I stayed in this hotel few years back when it was still fresh. It was so nice....

I don't think they deserved to be called "hotel" in the first place. They don't even give the basics. Their small travel kit includes sachet shampoo, soap and cotton buds. You have to bring therefore your toothpaste and toothbrush. They don't have complimentary slippers and rags. You heard it right, RAGS! So from the bathroom after taking a shower, your...

This hostel is the most worst hostel in Cebu. I booked for 2 days. I was not able to get a decent sleep because you could hear the noise of public vehicles from the main highway. Free WIFI? it's so slowwww and hard to connect. You have to go down to the lobby to get a better connection. The service...

I booked 3 rooms... 2 large and one extra large. The difference is that the XL was supposed to have a kitchenette. To my surprise, the "kitchenette" was just a sink (see picture). The room was ok. They give you towel, soap, cotton buds and shampoo as your toiletry kit. But we ran out of water. The next day, electricity...

Close to airport, near a supermarket, accessible to taxi and other PUVs- just the right place for you for a quick layover. To set expectations straight, this property looks more like an American motel than a regular hotel. Bonus: Zubochon in-house dining open 24/7. If you have spare time, the Cebu Yacht Club is a stroll away.

I'm sure this hotel was great when it opened but nothing has been done to it since. It's dirty, my room had broken fixtures and the linen didn't seem clean, AC was noisy and the street noise made it impossible to rest. I also booked a pick up from the airport which didn't show. The price is great but I...

the hotel is pretty old, rooms are not very clean, no windows. if i had to stay there for more than 1 night i would definetely reconsider. it is close to airport, just 3 minutes by car. considering the condition of the rooms and amenities the place is well overpriced.
