“Great room and service.. but lacking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2016

Booked Alpa city Suites thru Expedia (hotel + flight) for our Cebu City tour with my friend.

Weak points:
1) The room was for 2 but some toiletries in the bathroom are lacking. 1 small bottle of shampoo/conditioner, 2 small soaps. Good thing we bought our own toiletries.
2) No slippers.
3) Taxi only to and from your destination

Strong points:
1) Buffet breakfast! they change their menu daily.
2) Cold air condition. As in really cold. I got colds the morning after we wake up. But it's all right.
3) New towels everyday
4) TV, Refrigerator and a microwave. Can you believe that. Though we didn't have the chance to use it. But it looks promising
5) Comfy big bed for 2. 4 pillows so 2 each.
6) Great staff especially the one outside reception, he is very helpful when we asked for directions
7) Fast wifi. You have your own router in your room.

Room Tip: 6th floor is nice with a view of the city

If you want a pleasant stay in Mandaue, this hotel is the best to check in. The room is big, good for a family of four, and has its own WIFI (not shared). Though it is a budget, I would still rate this as a perfect three-star because of the services as well as the people and the room where it has its own ref, microwave oven, and a sink. Better stay here around this season because they offer 50% off.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level rooms because it has a good view.

GIGANTIC COMFORTABLE BED, SURPRISE MICROWAVE AND FRIDGE. SUPER SATISFYING FREE BUFFET BREAKFAST, FABULOUS VARIETY OF FOODS. STAFF WERE AMAZING, SO ATTENTIVE AND LOVELY FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

great for couples looking for a slice of luxury on a shoestring budget. room was right in front of elevator (perfect for an in-and-out overnight stay) with a view of the real cebu plus mountains in the backdrop. television big. environmentally friendly is a big plus.

Weak points: 1) difference between standard and executive room is size of bed - you don't get one big bed but two big single beds pushed together with the gap discomfort. That is not worth the difference to standard room. 2) house keeping trolley has slippers, tissue box, and what not, but even executive room don't get any of that, just a soap and a shampoo / conditioner mini bottle - I call that pathetic and unbecoming for a 4 star claim. 3) Room is quite small, great for a 3 star, not 4 star. You can get bigger rooms from 3 star hotels nearby. 4) Kitchenette is nice but other than a microwave, single set of plate and cutlery, there is nothing else, not even kettle and no tea or coffee is provided (other 3 star hotels nearby have no kitchen, but kettle and provide tea / coffee).
Strong points: 1) clean - top marks. 2) Breakfast buffet is as good as is at a few other 3 star hotels nearby. 3) Secure parking inside the building is a small plus (if you come with a vehicle or bike).
I will stay there again when their pricing structure competes reasonably with those other 3 star hotels nearby as it is not a 4 star and thus not worth more.

Room Tip: There are no rooms which are 'bad'.

Guards more than happy to assist you in getting a taxi

Dont pay more than you need to, this hotel will accommodate all your needs.
