I will recommend this hotel to all travelers who want to relax and don't spend too much. I love thier breakfast buffet and thier staffs are very friendly and helpful. My room is big enough which can accomodate several friends of mine who drop by for a chat. The only thing that I'm not really happy about is thier hot water, twice I was in the shower and didn't get enough hot water....

Well, lets start with the positive:
I stayed at the 2room suite which was really huge!
The decoration was outdated and a little worn, but the room was (as for philipines standards) very clean.
The staff was very friendly.
The Location is superb.
There are some small shops nearby and 1-2 banks.
Never had any problems to get a taxi.
By taxi It takes about 5-7 minutes to get to the city center as well as to Ayala Center.

I found it a pity that there wasn't a second tv-set in the living room, and that there wasn't any window in the bedroom.
The F&B outlets are lousy. The restaurant is smelly and there are about 100 ants having a race on each table.
Never mind; you still may order roomservice.
F&B Quality (roomservice) is fine, but it usualy takes up to an hour.
The swimmingpool (on the roof) is a joke. Its not much bigger than a bath tap and the water had a strange colour which certainly was not blue.

Since there are lots of worse hotels in cebu which are more expensive (and not as clean), I would go there again.
The only real setback for me was the pool.

hmm... should I mention this?
Ok, my GF saw a small cockroach in the bedroom. I didnt see it, even I was looking for it.
So, I cant really say if its true or false...

We booked a deluxe room for 2 nights at this hotel. It was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We were given a room where the faucet and shower were rusty and the toilet was dirty with brown stains. The toilet lid was wobbly and almost broken. The storage area for cosmetic items was the toilet cistern. The view of the backyard with old dirty corrugated iron roofs. The rusted steel windows smeared with paint. The facility as from bulky waste. holes in the walls. The closet was so dirty that you couldn't use it. That's called a grand hotel with deluxe rooms. I wouldn't book here again, even for a gift.

We had the same experience as others regarding the hotel being clean and healthy... I got bitten by a cockroach THAT WAS IN MY BED! The hotel didn't react in a professional way so they do not get our monthly business. It compares to the city dump and management is non existant..

This would be the third time I stayed at the Cebu Grand and it is important you put things in perspective. If you are an American and expecting to find the Grand Hyatt look elsewhere. The Cebu Grand is a bit old and faded in spots but it is wonderfully located, clean and the staff has been wonderful on every occasion. If you look at the price of the rooms you get a better value than you do at most hotels in US. I will continue to stay there whenever I go to Cebu!!!!

This Hotel s----. It's old but unlike vintage wine does not have the desirable fizzle. Only one elevator worked and does not have an open button in case you have to open the door a bit. The room is big enough but the furnishings are worse. To say they are not pleasing to the eye would be an understatement.The bathroom is too small. Hotwater mechanism can't be blended easily.There's not bathtub as displayed in the net.

Early morning, I was awakened by the noise of water dripping in the room airconditioner. I reported the matter but was never offered any alternative room. I suppose this is an ordinary occurence because of the type of airconditioner used in the rooms.

I wouldn't recommend this Hotel.

Remember the phrase, "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore?” I feel the Statue of Liberty was calling out for Cebu Grand Hotel.

It is an old hotel. The furniture and fixtures in the room were very dated. They gave off an old smell. Despite the airconditioning, the air was dry and I had a hard time breathing.

The bathroom also gave me problems. When I turned on the faucet, rust water came out at first. It was disgusting.

Back in the room, mine had a piano. I found this creepy. It was my first time to sleep in a hotel room with a piano. I was scared that in the middle of the night it would play by itself.

The saving grace of this hotel are the following:
1. The towels were fluffy and new.
2. The buffet breakfast had a good selection.

Unless there were no other choices, I wouldn’t stay here again.

When in Cebu, I usually stay at another hotel. This time around, my team and I decided to try out Cebu Grand Hotel for a training as well as for my accommodations. I was booked in a Superior room, which was better-looking than most 2 or 3-star hotels. However, in my three nights of stay here, I have run into some issues:

1. Buffet-style breakfast was okay, except that this morning, they decided to use more than half of the cafe area for a function, leaving only three tables and the bar counter for guests having breakfast. I strongly suspect that sometimes the coffee they pass off as "brewed" is really Nescafe instant coffee! I joked with a staff about this; he just smiled. To make matters worse, this morning, the coffee coming out of the thermos dispenser was cold. I told the staff and they discovered the dispenser was not plugged in. No offers to replace my cup of coffee were made.

2. The first sign that things weren't as organized here as I had expected was that the front desk staff didn't have enough information about my booking when I checked in. She had to call someone and they spoke in Cebuano to clarify my booking; I speak Cebuano and so I was privy to the confusion.

3. I called housekeeping to have someone pick up a shirt and a pair of pants for pressing. Someone came a few minutes later but when I asked him how much the service would cost, he didn't know and even instructed me to check the price list in the cabinet. They did not deliver my clothes on time; I had to call them and when I did, the lady at the other end of the line seemed confused.

4. The boardroom assigned to us was not the one that was shown to us via pictures when we made the booking. We had to ask to be moved. In the new boardroom, the white board they provided was not glossy enough for white board marks to be erased (we did use white board markers!). We asked the staff to replace it and explained why, to which the staff replied in Cebuano, "Oh right, that one is really defective." Why give it to us in the first place? :)

5. The meals weren't served to us at the boardroom on time. I even bit into plastic when I sampled their clubhouse sandwich. (The plastic apparently was from the cheese packaging.) I politely showed the plastic to the waiting staff, who did not offer any apology. He just smiled.

6. One of our staff was feeling ill during the training and so we called them for assistance—first aid, shuttle to the nearby ER. It was taking too long for them to respond so we decided to get a cab instead and have one of us take our sick colleague to the ER.

6. I couldn't get the WiFi to work. (Full disclosure: I didn't ask staff for help regarding this as I felt I've reached my threshold for poor service and I didn't want to get disappointed even more.)

Overall, the staff are generally nice and friendly but not efficient and service-oriented. This is a training issue and performance monitoring issue, I suppose. I like the amenities, I like the location, but management should do something about their service if they intend to thrive in a highly competitive environment like urban Cebu where there is a hotel at every corner.

P.S. Just now, as I type this, I found a dead cockroach near my door. I am not squeamish, but I smiled when I imagined how a foreigner might react to seeing that poor bug :)
