We like the area & the theme of the hotel. Its quaint & intimate. The problem is it needs cleaning since dust accumulates inside the room.

The room we stayed has a complicated aircon. It was so hot & we were sweating. The room we were occupying is facing the bay.

you can have breakfast at sunrise at this hotel facing the shore that is if you are able to wake up the staff to serve you a cup of coffee. the front desk is okay and they will help you with your luggage up the stairs. didnt see any elevator and luckily i just had an overnight bag. the room is small and cramped and my view from the window is some other house's backwall. there is this damp smell admixed with a hint of "was it sewage, i hope not). dont have an area to place my laptop and connect to an outlet at the same time. not good for business travelers. It's probably just a safe place to stay but i wouldnt hole up in my room because of the smell. it's just a place to store my things if my intention is to stroll along the boulevard and visit the Siliman university to attend a seminar there.

Room Tip: get a room fronting the boulevard otherwise you will get claustrophobia

This is an old, small, 2-storey hotel right smack in the middle of Rizal Boulevard. I found it charming, I stayed here about 6 years ago and it hasn't changed much. Wooden plank floors, We got a family room with 2 beds. The sleeping area was sufficient for 2 adults and 2 kids. But the bed was not enough so we ordered and paid for an additional bed. Beware, they only give you a mattress on the floor, we found out that the lining of the banket was a white shower curtain. I know, it had holes where you attach it to the curtain rod.
A/c was good enough for a hot day. The room had a balcony that opens and you can sip coffee looking at the boulevard. Nice!

The bathroom was small. We were given the really tiny, thin bath soaps and shampoo was in a dispenser. We asked for toothbrush, but they have none. But hairdryer is available. Good thing 7-11 is just stone's throw away if you wish better toiletries.

The room did not come with breakfast so we went to their cafe, Don Atilano, for ours. There were 2-3 other families being served and there was only 1 waiter taking and serving orders. It took a long time for breakfast (just fried items) to be served. Turns out that only one cooks. One couple had to back out. I even had time to grab pictures at the nearby Silliman University, and breakfast hasn't even arrived!

Parking is scarce so if you're taking a car, it's first come, first served.
Location is excellent. Staff are friendly enough.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with views of th boulevard or even the one with balcony. Get room 201

There's no room available at this time since they're celebrating at the moment the Sandurot Festival from November 18 to 27, and I just showed up to inquire of their availability. The room that was offered to me was the Ocean View for Php2,600.00. I stayed for one night. The linens were soft as well as the pillows, I had a good night sleep and they have friendly, cheerful and accommodating staff. The room is of contemporary design. The mattress, pillows and linens were soft. I feel really comfortable in this hotel. I had a good night sleep.

This hotel is across the Rizal Boulevard. If you go left, it's a 2-minute walk to the I ❤️DUMAGUETE spot for picture taking. It's a 3-minute walk going to Silliman University. A good 5 to 10-minute walk going to the Dumaguete Port that goes to Siquijor. And best of all, this hotel is conveniently sorrounded with restaurants that caters to different taste buds and budget.

My comments for this hotel:

1. Breakfast NOT included.

2. The only free in the toilet is the soap (a cheap soap that dries your skin, I only use this to wash my hand). You have to provide your shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste. I always carry my own toiletries but for the price they charge per night, I was expecting they have these usual stuff.

3. The aircon needs to be fixed. You have to turn on and off the remote a few times before cold air comes out from the aircon.

4. The bathroom looks old (but it was clean), it just has that nasty (but not disturbing) smell. The exhaust fan was noisy.

Anyways, my overall stay was very good.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. I was attending a conference at Silliman, so I wanted something convenient. I had not booked a room when I arrived because none of the hotels seemed good enough based on reviews here. We checked out this hotel before checking Bethel but, since that was fully booked, we decided to stay here. They first offered us the family room (saying it was what was available), which I believe is the most expensive room and has a bay view. When I asked about a more quiet room, they then showed me a side room that still had a window (I think some of the middle rooms have no windows?) but, since that was smaller (and I'd been traveling for 3 weeks and I wanted breathing room), I picked the family room.

The room was spacious -- 2 double beds, but no desk. I didn't have a problem with the beds (could have used better linens) or the a/c (though it didn't work as well on our final night, and I couldn't sleep). It's definitely noisy with the traffic from the road. I normally have trouble sleeping when it's noisy, but I think I was too tired from my trip to care at this point. It was also balanced by the view and the opportunity to people watch. (As I didn't have time to go around, this was my only chance to really see the town doing its thing.)

The bathroom is awful. It looks awful & is in need of a renovation. Water stains everywhere -- in the shower, in the toilet bowl. It doesn't have a shower door or curtain (just a half wall), so the floor will get wet after you shower -- I hate wet floors. The water never got hot. When we asked for help late at night, there was only the guard and one other guy left & he said to give it 10 minutes. Coming from California, where we have a drought, I was appalled at that suggestion. Also, I don't exactly have 10 spare minutes when I have to get to a conference early. The water came out tepid at best. I asked them again the next day to check it out but still the same.

I can't say much about the cleanliness either. Walking on the wood floor, my feet were definitely collecting dust. I asked them to clean it the first morning, but I don't think they did a good job.

The internet sucked. Not at all helpful for business travelers.

I paid about $60-$70, which is definitely on the high end for hotels in the city proper, and it didn't even include breakfast.

This hotel has potential, if the owners would only do something about it. I doubt they will. If you're looking for a cheap hotel, there are lots of other options. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't it either.

Room Tip: Bay view rooms are noisy, but it's big.
