Stayed at this hotel from 25-27 May 2014 at room 511 facing the entrance road to Maria Luisa Subd. Chose this hotel based on previous reviews in tripadvisor. Exceeded my expectations. The room was large, with large bathroom. I found the room clean and uniquely-designed. I understand from reviews on the net that it is owned by a European couple who placed their travel collection as accents. The bed linens were better than the sheets you get from known brands abroad. The room had a large TV and a DVD player. The room aircon was a match for the summer heat. Access to the elevator and to the room is through a key card.
Check-in was smooth even though I arrived a bit late in the evening. Had breakfast each day at the hotel restaurant Rica. Breakfast spread was simple but filling and delicious. Each day was different. As I passed by on my first evening, I saw that the restaurant was full of patrons. However, I chose to have dinner in an Italian restaurant outside the hotel but within the same compound. Check out the VW beetle displayed on the second floor, as you enter the bar.
The hotel is located next to the main road so getting a taxi is not difficult. Gaisano Country Mall is a short walk away. If you're headed for the city center, there appears to be a public transport service to Colon but I have not tried it. Banilad, the district where the hotel is located has several interesting shops (The Spa, etc) and bars (Cablecar, etc). Further into the city is Ayala Center and SM malls. There's also a Korean resto and a Korean Spa next door.
I think I've found my regular place in Cebu. I'll definitely be back. :)
