“Nice location”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

The hotel was near the business area, with lots of places to go and eat. The WiFi was slow and sometimes very difficult to connect.

Food was okay. Breakfast was buffet style and a cook was around to prepare eggs. Dinner was served in the mezzanine which was separate from the main dining area. This was to our liking because we were a large group and normally our dinner was extended due to informal chat and we would not disturb other diners.

The room had the standard amenities and the bed was comfortable to afford a good night's sleep.

The two elevators were not working properly during our visit. We nearly got trapped in one of them because the door refused to open when we reached the ground floor. The elevators should be replaced.

The staff was friendly,courteous and were ready to be of service.

Overall, our stay was okay.

I would stay in this hotel again if ever I am back in CDO.

Stayed here a couple times. The last time, I also had wifi problems AND no bars on my phone, so I asked for another room. They quickly accommodated me. However, the next room was crazy with roaches. They tried their best, and sent up a guy with a poison sprayer. Not so fun to breathe, so they moved me again, even though they were close to capacity. I can't complain, they were so nice!

I stayed in august 2012 after staying a couple of times before. I guess I choose it because of its location. I find it clean, ok it is a bit dated but it is a fair price for what you get - as long as the tv and air con works and there is hot water I am happy. I tended to eat opposite in the Vienna coffee house.

From the name, Grand City Hotel, you may imagine a state of the art, swish place, however you'll find that the environment is just kind of adequate. The decor reminded me a bit of 1960's style Italian tree star hotels. The basic rooms (1180 pesos per night with air con) are just big enough for yourself and your suitcase, so don't expect masses of space. Also, some of them don't receive any sun light because the windows face a wall, so they ended up being a bit depressing. The reception works fine and the staff is polite and friendly. The "superior" rooms also offer a bath tub for an extra 200 pesos.
The plus side is surely the location which is super central. Also it is to be said that the rooms are clean and very tidy.
They do have an internet connection in the lobby downstairs, but don't even bother because it's the slowest I have even seen and you are better off going to the cage across the street.
So, overall, not fantastic but functional.

Room Tip: I'm not sure it's worth spending any extra just to have a bath tub!

It's best seller is its location. Very near to all the eateries and banks in the city. Easy access to all types of public transport. The staff are courteous. You have to request to clean the bathroom which gets easily dirty because the water from the shower splash at the floor. They don't provide a door mat in the cr. Their superior room is quite ok. The bed is comfy and the airconditioner is functioning. Needs improvement in their bath tub because you have to manually drain the water accumulating during your shower.

Covers the basics: decent bathroom, comfortable bed, hot shower, and air conditioning in a great location - walking distance to my conference venue, food places, and cash points. The twin sharing standard room is affordable at around 1,200. Breakfast buffet is an additional P195 per head, which I never tried, being more attracted to nearby cozy coffee shops. It was my first travel to CDO so I cannot compare it with other hotels in the area.

For improvement:
1. pest control (some old buildings have their creatures, not for kikay travelers who cannot deal with a cockroach)
2. internet connection (we picked this place partly because it was advertised that they have wifi, but it turns out that this is only free in the lobby that smells of smoke, and even there i could not connect with an iphone. They serve internet in the rooms for P100/4 hours)
3. better laundry (not for those whose pet peeve are towels that smell of smoke).
