First thing you notice is a big nice lobby, which really is a great one. The staff is also wonderful, kind and helpful. There is a nice restaurant in the lobby where the food is ok. Breakfast didn't impress any of us though. If you want to eat at another restaurant you will have to take a taxi, because of unsafe neighbourhood.
Our first impression of the rooms was actually quite nice. It's clean and fresh. Even though our room was small and had no view. There is a window, but it's facing some kind of hole in the building from where the aircon is based and also were the shower air goes out. Observe that only the superior room has window, none of the standard/deluxe rooms. The walls are as thin as paper. We could hear our neighbours talk, move, watching TV as it was in our own room. The aircondition was really loud and was blowing directly to our faces in the bed.
They offer laundry to the guests, but you have to pay a lot for EACH item (40-160php), when laundry service at for example SM costs 35php/kg.
We've been warned about cars with fixed prices and the guard insisted that we should take one of them, even though they were twice as expensive as a regular one. This has not happened in any of the other hotels that we've stayed at.
I really wanted to rate this hotel higher because of the travler's choice and we tried it for three nights, but it didn't impress. Worth to mention is that my boyfriend was more ok with the hotel than me. We have tried 5 hotels in Cebu city and all of the others were better than this and most of them cheaper as well. If you're looking for a budget hotel for just sleeping, near SM and the pier this might be it, but otherwise I would say that are better alternatives in this price range.
