Nice place to stay. The staff was nice and always very helpful. Rooms were nice and spacious. Centrally located for sightseeing and shopping. Good food near also. The nite life is ok and also close by. Lots of touristy things to see and do. …….

Not one to give a place a "terrible" rating as I know the staff can only do their best with the circumstances they are surrounded by and as someone in the service industry, I empathize with them. That said, my expectations of this place was so far beyond what the reality was -- the moldy and dark bathrooms, dark gray colored towels, and unknown scent that permeates the room, the hallways, and the even lobby is one that I cannot forget (and not in a good way). I heard this was as decent hotel in the past but it seems its age has finally caught up with it. No amount of "modern updates" like the elevator buttons or the contemporary hallway walls can mask the real work needed to be done. Furthermore, having the bus station AND construction outside didn't allow for us to sleep, even one bit. THAT, along with the slow and often choppy internet makes this a place that my fellow digital nomads should avoid, as tempting as the fact that SM CITY is next door. There are too many good hotels in Cebu city to stay in.

When we arrived we were traveling with 6 senior citizens. Despite booking rooms with 2 double beds, they gave us room with bunk beds, then told us they didn't have anything else available. We retorted, that this wasn't what we reserved. It was a non started and we didn't stay there. They as usual put it on the third party booking site to obtain a refund. I still don't think we will get our money back. The hallways also had an odor. Stay somewhere else. There are better choices in Cebu.

Overall the hotel was very good. We stayed here after flying in for a family wedding and took around 30 minutes to transfer in from the airport. See a lot of the reviews expecting the Ritz and if that’s what you’re looking for book the BAI not here. All rooms have decent AC and noise level is low considering you’re on an intersection. Mall across the road is good with a lot of designer shops and places to eat. If you’re looking for more of a market experience Park Mall is a short taxi ride away and has an indoor market upstairs with a large supermarket. Breakfast is typical of what you would expect in the Philippines, rice with eggs and some meat. Avoid going for breakfast between 07:00 and 08:30. The restaurant simply isn’t big enough but the staff will not warn you it’s full before entering.

This hotel is located right next to the large SM City Mall and the main Cebu Port (Wharf) area of Mabolo. It is notionally a 3 Star hotel, but many of the facilities rate higher, i would say. Front desk service is uneven. Overnight clerk was wonderful and she was so attentive to my concerns. Meanwhile morning desk clerks ignored me because I was not a local. Note - you need to pick up your breakfast tickets each morning. They do not issue them upon check in like many places in Cebu do. I booked a deluxe room , but upon arrival was given a 15th Floor Suite. It was over-the-top great in every way. Breakfast is modest and the eggs are made ahead and served cold. You can avoid this by requesting a custom order omelette. Location is good - there are taxis all the time, and a major bus station is just across the street. If you are staying in the Mabolo area of Cebu City, this hotel is without doubt the best value for your money.

I’ve stayed here numerous times. Mainly because it is centrally located and close to the pier and also there’s an SM mall across the street which you can just walk to. The rooms are pretty basic but clean and comfortable. The rate includes free buffet breakfast. Taxis are readily available outside the hotel.

The bed sheets were filthy with excrement on them! My fiancee and I booked this hotel, when we went to get into the bed, I noticed brown stains on the sheet, which was excrement. The manager came and said the sheets and room were cleaned. She basically accused me of dirtying the sheets. I then actually dropped my shorts and bent over and said look at my back side and you will see its clean. We immediately packed and left the hotel for a budget hotel. At no stage did the manager attempt to find us another room! Will never go to this hotel again!

Mostly good experiences with well maintained rooms, good wifi etc. We chose it as is close to Pier to get waterjet to Bohol and half the price of Radission Blu just down the road a bit further. Cons are noise and crowds. There are vehicles blaring airhorns in the middle of the night and the siren from the port every couple hours. The crowds at breakfast are daunting. Checkin and checkout chaotic crowding in lobby. Only two elevators so often must wait and will be packed in like sardines.

I have stayed here for 3 nights. It is a brand new budget hotel in Cebu City, perfectly well located next to SM City, ports going to nearby islands and provinces, a bus terminal going to places with beautiful tourists attraction particularly Bantayan Island. A very busy hotel, rates include buffet breakfast. The daily breakfast is always packed. It is 2 mins walk to SM but the 7/11 convenience store at the lobby is definitely a plus factor. I am staying here again in August 2023 before flying to our final destination for our family holiday in the Philippines!

This hotel was good for the area. It’s always hot and muggy so a nice cool room is always good. Spacious and welcoming. The staff was great. Lots to do in the area walking or riding. Have to look for the nite life.
