“Affordable yet Comfortable for budget minded travelers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

The Ancestors Pension House near Cebu City (Mandaue) is a very nice, affordable hotel, just 20-30 minutes by Taxi from Mactan International Airport. Typical rate is around P1000-1200 pesos per night ($28 USD) Clean rooms, adequate facilities, showers, amenities. If you are expecting Five Star accomodations anywhere in the Philippines, you should probably stay at the places P5000+ ($120 USD) or visit another place. However if you're a seasoned traveler and don't mind a basic yet comfortable room, Ancestors fits the bill nicely!

Room Tip: I believe some rooms have refrigerators, but not all. It depends on what you ask for and want, so be...

It was my thrid time in the ancestors in Mandaue. What i like most are the staff, very accomodating and friendly. It is ideal for Sinulog festival. One get to participate in almost all its activities both in St. Joseph National Shrine and in Sto. Basilica in Cebu City. Its location is very ideal. The proximity of at least the basic necessities like the Church, the eateries, banks. I suggest however for bigger room for three (3), say one twin sharing plus additional bed. Very affordable. Have recommended to a friend already.
