Im very satisfied with my stay at Grand City Hotel because the room is spacious and clean. The comfort room and shower room is clean as well. The attendants are very friendly and they are always available to accommodate our needs.

This hotel is affordable and the staff are friendly and very accomodating. The rooms are quite dark and old with old beddings but still comfortable. Its location is also noce because it is near many restaurants you can choose from to dine.

The only bad thing I can think of was the tiny sugar ants in the room, but then they were in every hotel I stayed in all over the PI during my trip. Other than that, it was a nice room at a very low price. I had a car while I was there, and they have a private secured...

This place is old. The wirings inside the room is exposed and just hidden behind the side table. The faucets and showers are leaking. The elevators are also faulty. The best thing about this place though is the location. Its located at the heart of the city and has great access to just about anything from malls, restos, schools, stores...

The place was at the heart of CDO. It is surrounded by all kinds of stores. Xavier University is located at the back of the hotel and you can visit their museum aside from the other one just around the other block. A very good club is also just around the area for easier travel to and fro especially if...

Staff is outstanding, friendly and help you wherever they can. I stayed here already 7 or 8 times and always go back. Their buffet breakfast is a good start for the day - eat all you can at a very reasonable price. Ok, rooms need some refreshing and sometimes the fridge is more a freezer than a fridge. But this...

“Not really any tips. Room was much better than a Motel 6, but not quite a Holiday Inn Express. It was somewhere in between, but for around $20 a night, you cannot go wrong.”
