I was fortunate enough to spend thanksgiving in Cebu and stayed 2 weeks. My priority was to find a place to stay that was clean with affordable prices, as would most folks. I got it at Oftana suites.
I got one of the smaller rooms good for me. The first thing I look at is the bathroom and the bathroom was very clean. The room smells clean. The biggest pet peeve I have is old bed comforters that the hotel do not change. I was surprised that every time they cleaned my room I got a different comforter - other hotel usually just change the sheets.
The location is great! I went to the mall almost everyday by a cab which cost about $1.50. There is a food complex a walking distance about 3 to 4 minutes and they have various nice eateries and a Starbucks! I never had to explain to find the hotel as the street is very well known by the cab drivers. The staff did provide me with a small map if the taxi wanted directions but I never used it.
I found that the Hotel had great in room food service. The assortment of noodles, meat dish and seafood was delicious and affordable! I got spoiled ordering rice, noodles, chicken and egg rollscrabs with a drink that was very affordable - then going out in town to eat. The hotel also has a bakery downstairs that has amazing bread and pasties. They have a filipino coconut bread called Bibingka that I ate fresh out of the oven everyday. Not great for the waist line but i kept my addiction to two servings daily.
The staff is friendly and very helpful -by my second day they knew to hail me a cab and the cooks knew my food choices before the end of the week.
I did hear that there was Sunday service but I don't stay in bed on Sundays. I am out of the hotel doing things so it didn't bother me much.
It's easy to find on the web. They have a website oftanasuites.com with info and contact number. I say email them as it's fast to get a reply.
Overall the hotel is a great location + clean clean clean + and a great deal for the price. I am staying here again.
