We stayed in this hotel overnight in order to catch our flight in Mactan Airport the next day. We chose it because of its good reviews in TripAdvisor. Upon arrival we were.pleasantly surprised to be told that we had been upgraded to the Presidential Suite. It was perhaps more a matter of convenience to the hotel for having been overbooked in their standard room to move us to a rarely booked room for one night. Needless to say we did not complain esp. when the suite was located at the rear of the building away from traffic. The suite had a spacious living room, dining area, kitchen facilities, an outside veranda, a huge bedroom with beautiful decor, and a modern bathroom. We were quite blown away!
The downside to this hotel is the location. It is right in the middle of a very busy boulevard, flanked by small stores and a neighbourhood that is not very walkable. There is no good stores or restaurants nearby. Thank goodness the Cafe downstairs served very good food including dinner and breakfast. The staff both in in the hotel and restaurant is very helpful and hospitable as well.
So all in all, if one is there for business or on short personal visits but has a ride to go somewhere else for shopping or food and sleep well despite the noise, then I would certainly recommend this hotel. Otherwise if you are a tourist wanting some rest and relaxation, this is not a place to be in. You may want to try other hotels by the beach in the Mactan area or the Marriott in Cebu near the Ayala Mall.
