“Simple but delicious breakfast”
Reviewed December 2, 2016 via mobile

There isn't anything special about the hotel but you're not paying anything special either so we have to set the right expectations when booking anywhere. Right?

Rooms are just the right size, as well as the bathrooms. No problem at all with water pressure and temperature. They provide complete toiletries, even with towelettes and a shower cap. Their blackout curtains could use a bit of repairs but nothing major.

They have a kitchenette bit without a stove. There's a microwave and sink on the counter, and a big refrigerator. No mini bar.

Parking can be a problem as the hotel is right on a busy intersection, but not impossible. Their guards could use a little more training and development but they were still quite helpful.

Their location makes it very easy to go to and from the airport and major shopping malls. Mandaue is also right there, but be aware that traffic from H. Cortes street going to A.S. Fortuna is perpetually slow moving.

What's best about this hotel for me was the breakfast. They didn't have as many options as other similarly priced hotels but little variety meant better quality.

Hotel currently celebrating their 8th year in operation anniversary. Feels kinda older and dated, yet rooms extremely well maintained and comfortable. On 7th floor, we got some horn and trike-bike noise from the street, otherwise quiet enough. Couple of big plusses in this class of hotel: hot water heater in the bathroom; and wifi router in the room. This was the best, and fastest internet we experienced in Cebu (better than both the Henry and Harold's Hotel): too good to be true actually. Kitchenette was nothing but a sink, some countertop, tableware, and larger fridge if that's what you need. Immediate vicinity outside hotel had little to offer in way of food, which could be important for longer stays as the cuisine in the Alpa restaurant was atrocious: spam in the salad and ketchup for pasta sauce. Staff here is surprisingly professional.

Room Tip: higher the better

Nice clean room. i don't know if it is the hotel's soap or the water but it doesn't seem to "bubble". that said, don't expect much. food is not bad. Nothing great either. for the price, it will do. i give it four stars for value for money. Staff is equally helpful - better than some hotels in this price range. it is centrally located between two of the bigger malls in the city. Ayala and SM. taxi is easy to hail.

Alpa City Suites is a good place to stay for business if you are in the Mandaue area.
It has good rooms with amenities and also comes with buffet breakfast.
SM City Cebu and Ayala Center are easily accessible from the hotel
