Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 17/9 to 22/9 at Room 604. We can see the sea from the room. Room is small but sufficient as it has a cabinet with good storage place (unlike most of the budget hotel which doesn't even have a place to hang our clothes). Aircon super cold, water heater and pressure inconsistent. Cabel TV actually has tons of watchable channels. If you asked for any assistance like towel, a flask of hot water , it would happened in a speed of lightning. Not many hotel , even the 5 stars hotel can provide such efficient service.
The staff named Chan is extremely helpful and always cheerful and smiling. He seems to understand our needs and pointed us to all the right place from local eatery, laundry service, internet cafe etc.
The location is simply great as we walked to all the nearby attraction like Magellen Cross, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, Yap Santiago House, Plaza Independence, Fort San Pedro ,Colon Street, City Hall.
24 hours Mc Donald is just across the street. The 7-11 is a stone throw away and Internet Cafe and Laundry service (25 peso per kg, minimum 2 kg) located 3 blocks away. Same roll there is a little eatery called Nito's Lechon that sells great roaster pig (about 60 peso for a serving of pork, rice and coke) . We went to the famous TNT Lechon just opposite SM Mall but we prefer Nito's lechon (Open daily from 10am to 8pm). Another place the staff recommend was the AA BBQ next to Plaza Independence, yummy food at reasonable price, try their Green Mango shake.
The street kids at the corner of the hotel as well as street vendors doesn't really bug us much as they are not persistent.
Overall a very pleasant experience. Very good base for our stay in Cebu.
