It is the staff that made me give Nicanor 4 stars. We stayed here for 4 nights. We had total of 5 rooms between friends and family. I booked the suite and was given the unit on 5th floor. The room is huge and the AC is not filling the room with cold air. It's probably because we're on the top floor. We requested for a fan and they immediately gave our request. We gave it one night but the room is just too hot. We requested to be moved and they transferred us the next day to 4th floor. Our problem got solved after that. So thankful that it was not difficult to talk to the staff. I wanna add that they cleaned our room well and we felt safe in this hotel/our unit.

This hotel is centrally located. They don't offer breakfast but there are several fast food resto that's 24 hours open. Do not depend on their free Wi-Fi. It doesn't work most of the time.I will probably stay in this hotel again because of their location and staff.

Clean and still in good shape, the Family Room of this hotel became our temporary home for a couple of nights. With a ref and complimentary coffee, we sure had a very pleasant stay here. And we really like the thick mattresses and sleep-friendly pillows. The ample space also allowed the 4 of us to move about without bumping into each other. Add to that its central location and we got good value for our money.

Tired rooms. Horrible odour. Tired staff. No ice. No restaurant. A bit better than backpackers but then honestly there are better hotels you stay at. Regret not seeing other hotels. The only good thing is that I was here only for a night. Never ever. Central location was the selling point for me.

We booked 3 rooms for our 2 day Dumaguete Trip and overall, This hotel is the worst part of our entire Dumaguete experience:

1. We requested a few tweaks for our 2nd Day accommodation but their "Supervisor" declined it - While i understand that rules are rules, This hotel isn't the most accommodating and the staff are not equipped to take ownership of simple requests. They don't know how to think outside the box.
2. We were accused to have smoked cigarette inside the room - I mean it's okay if they want to clarify things, but the way they acted on it made us feel like we're CRIMINALS - starting from the guard who signalled the front desk clerk that we already arrived, to the front desk clerk interrogating me in front of other customers just isn't acceptable. There are better ways to do that without offending people. Their staff seriously need training.

3. All 3 rooms we booked either smelled awful or looks creepy. They should have compensated it with Good Customer Service!

Room Tip: Just avoid this hotel.

Decent hotel in an excellent central location I booked the superior room for 2 nights for £40 with agoda, the room was good size, no breakfast, no safe, clean, tv, aircon, phone, small window, dressing table, no fridge,, coffee in room with flask for hot and cold water dispenser on each floor for instant hot water, wifi was average. hot shower, check in is a rather late 3pm I arrived at 12.30pm and was informed room.would be ready at 3pm. plus point of the hotel is it's location surrounded by shops and restaurants and 5 mins walk to the boulevard and walking distance to the pier for boats to siquijor island and other destinations, small lobby, freindly staff, guard on entrance,
Overall view of hotel nicanor is one of the better hotels in dumugete city for being affordable and having a good location in the heart of the city.
