Booked 3 nights through OYO. Rate for room 308 PHP2.200- but paid only 599-/night. N.Escario road is a very, very busy 4 lane street. One may risk one's life crossing diagonally over for a McDonald's breakfast. No breakfast or food/drinks in the hotel. I realized I would not be able to sleep due to traffic noise so ended up spending the 3 nights in a smaller twin bed room #411. (rate 1.700-) Review: friendly, young, helpful staff that will be excellent with more experience. (Front desk few smiles) Clean room but lots of small ants in #411. Curtains does not block out the light so I woke up early in the mornings. No safety deposit box in rooms. (at the reception there are boxes) Grips: # 308 cheap LED bulbs used in the 2 table lamps illuminating the ceiling but not the desk or night table and of course the traffic noise. #411 One can't lock the sliding window which would be a safety concern with kids. The curtains have seen better days. Only one ceiling lamp in the bathroom over at one end of the room which gives not enough light at the other end where the sink and mirror are. Conclusion: 3 stars as I paid only 599-/night

The hotel is situated near the catholic church, Vibo Place, Escario Central and many more fantastic restaurants.. 15-20 mins drive away from IT park/Ayala. We’re just disappointed with their restaurant since KANA restau is only open during dinner time (though they have 24-hr lechon restau. ) So, we opted to eat breakfast at Pension house restau which is across the hotel.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for giving us four stars in your review. We are sorry that you were disappointed with KANA Resto Bar's operating hours. We do have Lechon Belly, which is open 24-7 and a wonderful vegan restaurant called Vegan Deli Fooodhaus, which is open for lunch and dinner most days. We are aware these aren't adequate breakfast options. However, we would like to note that our hotel does not operate it's own restaurants. All the restaurants and other establishments operating within the hotel property are renting space from the property owners. This is why we encourage our guests to have breakfast outside the hotel. Aside from the Pension House's coffee shop across the street, there are plenty of other breakfast options just a short walk from our hotel, including: Jollibee, McDonald's, Cafe Sarree, Birdseed Breakfast Club + Cafe, and so on. There is also a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and a Starbucks nearby. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon. Best Regards, The Maxwell Hotel Management

A friend of mine from Manila stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and I crashed in. Rate for 2 nights is roughly around P2400 with no breakfast. It has basically served its purpose as a place to just sleep. Room is normal in size that has 2 single beds. Pillows were a bit thin though and restrooms is a bit rundown with no bidet. There is a restaurant located at the ground floor that serves breakfast from 100.00. Thry also have Cebus Lechon Belly open 24/7. Location wise the hotel is sorrounder by fastfood restaurants(Jollibee,Mcdonalds, BurgerKing) and other restaurants amd bars. Starbucks is also a walking distance and as well as Coffeebean. Convenient stores are also located within the area. If you just want a place to sleep in a budget then this place will just serve its purpose.

Dear Lawrence O, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We're glad you found it a good place to sleep. Many guests are happy with our central location, close to fast food restaurants, coffee shops, and convenience stores. Your comment regarding our thin pillows, slightly shabby state of our restroom, and lack of bidet is noted. We will raise these concerns to our general manager. If you are on a budget and looking for an affordable no-frills accommodation in Cebu City, our hotel is a good choice. Thank you very much, The Maxwell Hotel Management

Dear Mary F, Thank you for reviewing our hotel on TripAdvisor. We would like to apologize for the problems you experienced when checking in to our hotel. It is standard procedure to check the room first before letting the guest enter the room, no matter what time of the day or night he checks in. However, that there were no towels and only 1 bar of soap in your room even after the room was checked is unacceptable, and we have reprimanded the hotel staff who were in charge of cleaning and checking your room. We are also sorry that the water ran out when you were taking a bath on the day of your check out. We sometimes run out of water when our hotel is fully booked. But that is a temporary situation that only happens once in a blue moon, when all our guests are taking a bath at the exact same time. Rest assured that our general manager has been informed of your experience, Thank you very much, The Maxwell Hotel Management
