Sign says not to drink the water but how do you brush your teeth? I got sick to my stomach staying at this hotel.

The a/c is loud, sounds like rain. Staff is so-so, not going out of their way to be nice. Food at the restaurant is mediocre at best. Location is close to XXX shops, nude girls, etc.

It is pretty cheap hotel at about $37/night. If you are looking for cheap hotel, this might be your place. Just be forwarned of the items I listed above.

This is such a late review but hopefully it helps.

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel when we visited cebu on 2009.
I was really interested on how it looks like in the website..very colorful! so I book for 1 night thru online it was smooth reservation clerk was helpful. The entire hotel looks really clean!

Decide to get their standard room of 1,700 including breakfast. When we arrive the building was so pretty so green but when we finally settle in our room its very small. two single bed and it has like a dark feeling.

The bed is okay not that comfy. What I like was their small pool in the roof top.. its very serene overlooking the city of Cebu..so I enjoyed my time swimming!
We didn't ate in the rest since its a bit pricey so we decided to go to ayala and had diner in gerry's grill superb! love the food!
breakfast was buffet the following morning typical american and Filipino breakfast.

Over all our stay was just okay. Maybe we will come back but stayed in a different room this time.

Centrally located, rooms are clean and spacious. Not very trendy, but for the value of this hotel you can't ask for more. Not a resort or a hotel with lots of amenities but a good place to spend the night.

For us this hotel was only going to be a place to stop over and rest our heads after a long journey, so our expectations were never that high. However, we stayed here twice and were greeted warmly both times by the door and reception staff. 

We booked through a third party website (Agoda) and got a standard aircon room for the same price as advertised in the hotel, which was 1750PP. The standard rooms are a reasonable size, have a powerful hot shower, satellite TV, and everything we needed for a short stay. We were even upgraded to a suite one night which was a lot bigger and included a bath and fridge. The decor in both rooms was quite dated I'd say. We slept well both nights, and found the rooms to be dark and quiet which isn't always easy to come across in Asia!

Nearby is the Ayala Centre which has a great selection of shops and restaurants, as well as a cinema. Due to our late arrival we weren't very adventurous and just went there in the evenings. It's about a 10min walk or 50PP ride in a metered taxi (approximate). There are also loads of Jeepneys that do that route. We'd recommend Lemongrass in The Terrace area which serves authentic and reasonably priced Thai and Vietnamese food.

The downsides to Mango Park are that the aircon units in both rooms were very loud, so we had to turn them off at night and when watching TV, so it's almost not worth having them. We also found the breakfast a bit on the stingy side. It's a buffet and runs from 6:30-10am. We got down there at 9am and all of the eggs and meat dishes were gone. We asked for some more scrambled egg which they did, but nothing else was topped up so guests that came down after us had little choice. They also have a slightly bizarre 'No sharing' policy. From what I can gather, if one of you only wants a little bit to eat, you can't get a whole plate of food and then let someone else finish it for you? If the amount of food consumed is a problem, maybe they should have a small breakfast menu that is cooked to order? This would also eliminate food being wasted if it wasn't eaten at the buffet.

Other than that I think the hotel is pleasant enough, and represents value for money considering it's location. I'd stay here again if we were in Cebu for a day or two.

If you stay in one of the rooms facing the main street you will be kept awake all night with the ambulances (major hospitals near by) that travel the main street in front of the hotel. Ask for a back or rear facing view which is quiet. The cost for a Deluxe room is 2,000 pesos which is about par with what it costs in this part of the city. Breakfast is included but some mornings the variety was a bit lacking. All in all not to bad. The proximity to Fuente Osmenia square is quite good as you can get a Jitney either way if you want to. If not the taxis cost about 20 to 30 pesos.

Great staff and a great location. The rooms that we had we junior suites and quiet large. On any floor you dont hear the traffic but the view is best from the 5th floor.

The pool was great. Very clean and the area around it very tidy. We had some problems with the 5th button on the elevator working on 9 times out of ten. Breakfast was a bit standard but filling and would recommend it.

The tv's had plenty of cable channels to keep adults and children occupied. The hotel is very close to Ayala, and SM Malls. The area felt safe even at night. The guard will flag down a taxi for you even in the pouring rain. The only downside was the mini bar. We were accused of taking a number of items which we didnt. They date and sign the items in the mini bar. anything without that and you have to pay for. When we checked in for our second stay we checked and found 5 items without date and signitures. We would have been charged for these on checkout.

Because of the mini bar problems it took 45 minutes to check out. Other than that one problem the hotel was excellent.
