I stayed here in 2011. In 2012, I stayed at the Cebu Business Hotel and wrote a review.
While walking by the hotel in 2012, I noticed that some part of the lobby had been renovated. Although I didn't go in, if this hotel gets a well-deserved renovation, it will be a nice hotel.
My room was LARGE ... in fact, it was at least 2 times the size of my CBH room. And that alone would make me reconsider staying at the Mercedes.
The mattress was old and lumpy, pillows were beat to death in another century.
The staff was friendly, and provided me with a LOWER rate than I had agreed to via email. That was a unique touch that I never forgot.
The location is very close to the corner of Osmena and Colon. There are a few internet shops, small sari-sari (convenience) stores, and a few other things nearby.
