We joined a conference and trade exhibition in Cebu early this year and I had my EA booked us in this hotel as I have discount from my membership from an Association. Looking at their website it seems pretty good considering it is located at heart of the City.
I had to send my staff ahead of me for a day as I still got commitments that needs to be attended here in Manila. When my staff picked me up from the airport he told me about how bad the hotel was. I thought he was only exaggerating but he was not even close to it when he was explaining to me how it was.
First, there was no water. According to the hotel receptionist some guys who checked in earlier left the faucet opened and water running, consequently dried up their overhead tanks. They were already pumping water as of the time I checked in and may take a while to have the tanks completely filled up. Water started flowing the morning after.
Second, I noticed that the hotel is being used by local chaps to hold their party inside the room. When they got drunk and all, they got rowdy and noisy.
Third, the rooms are not as what it is in the pictures in their website. Linens are old and deteriorated. You can see some water marks on it. There were cockroaches in the cabinets. Television sets are old and don't have working remote control. The rooms are very dark and lacks lighting with busted bulbs. Air conditioning unit very noisy and I could go on endlessly. Truly the hotel lived up to its name. It's CENTURY OLD!!!
We checked out the following morning and looked for another hotel.
Stay away from this hotel! There are many other good budget hotels in the City about the same price with way much better facility.
