Only problem was the internet in my room they called it a land line. I asked (stupid me) if I just unplug the phone and connect to my laptop??? They shook their head so that is what I did, LOL. After a day without internet I asked if the internet was working, a guy followed me to the room and hidden out of view behind the TV, behold a land line for internet. Wifi does work if you are close enough to routers. The room was clean and big. The bed was big and comfortable. Bath room was also great but like so many hotels in Phi. not enough light to use electric shaver. I would recommend this hotel if you don't need the bells and whistles. I had an outside room on 4th floor. BUT I don't recommend their restaurant.

This Hotel is in the Hard of the town of Dumaguete .
The rooms are good enough clean , big and the price is very good .
The personal is always changed , it is from girls which are studing and they make their practising time . For this reason , after our opinion , they are very polite
and helpful.
The only small problem is : When is a big group of students is a little noisy , specialy near of the elevator and in the "siesta" - time .

Room Tip: Ask for a room in 4.th floor and fahr from elevator .

My friends and I rented two rooms: Super Deluxe and Deluxe room, both of which are really spacious and clean. Their rooms don't look like the ones in their website which is sort of disappointing. Their single beds were big enough for us to be comfortable,however their pillows were sort of small. Their a/cs were working perfectly fine and makes the warm weather of Dumaguete really bearable for us. This hotel also has cabled TV, lots of rooms for your clothes and has a cabinet. They have a small mirror in the room as well. Another downside is that we can hear the conversations of people walking in front of our rooms.

The shower room was big as well and everything there works fine. The only downside is the shower head, which was hard to adjust, hence we have to hold it in one hand all the time. They have free small soaps as well and they provide toilet tissues and towels.

Our rooms were located in the 4th floor. The lobby of the 4th floor had a mini-convenience store which had everything that one needs. Also, there's a strong wifi connection here.

The breakfast at the hotel, which was not free, (the cheapest of which was 85PhP, I believe) was bearable. It was good but it's not something I would eat everyday.

The staff though, were really friendly and were always there to assist us. They were always smiling which makes them seem very approachable.

The hotel is a few walks from the seaside, Siliman University, souvenir shops and port. It's situated in a really convenient place not to mention, it was really cheap.If you prefer to take the tricylce though, it's 9php per person and 1 tricycle can fit 8 people at most.


I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms at the sides, it probably has a view. We were unlucky enough to have a room with a...

This is a pleasant hotel in a very central location of Dumaguete town, and just a short walk from the boulevard. Rooms are of adequate size and very clean. Its a basic hotel but represents very good value for money. There is a restaurant which serves mainly filipino food. There are lots of eating places a short walk away, especially on the boulevard.

This hotel is in a great location for exploring the city. The rooms were of a good size and the staff were friendly and helpful. The in house laundry service was also very good priced.

A good, cheap option in Dumaguete.

What really makes this hotel stand out is its location. I stayed here for close to three months, and it was great help that there were a lot of grocery stores and fast food outlets within two blocks from the hotel. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Their in-house restaurant also has a few items that are quite good. They have simple and no-frills rooms. Considering the really affordable prices, staying in this hotel will very much be worth what you paid for.

Affordable price, big room location not along the boulevard however its walking distance. The floor somehow looks like an old building . Actually it looks old but newly painted. Staffs are helpful. If your a smoker its hassle since you need to go on the 4th floor just to smoke.The only thing i dont like here is phone signal is too weak actually its an on and off thing but most of the time no signal.there alot of socket no problem charging your gadgets.
