I booked this place online before arriving in Cebu, sight unseen. Very friendly. I got in at Oh Dark Hundred, leaving Hong Kong on a flight to Cebu overnight.
Even through Checking wasn't until 2pm, Checkout for the rooms being 12 noon and my room for the night being still occupied when I rolled up at 7am, I was able to check my suitcase into their secure storeroom and go out on the streets and hoof it around until noon and then check in early.
During my stay I found the staff friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the air conditioning was a godsend.
I would happily reccommend this to any other travellers to Ceby City.

... for ages before going out to get a taxi. We stopped at a taxi stand and waited in line for about 5 minutes before getting in the taxi and going back to the hotel. The taxi driver was crazy, I don't know how many times he honked the horn and he kept opening the door to spit. In the end we managed to get to the hotel in one piece and go to our room. Once we were there, we both got ready for bed, I finished my blog before going to sleep. ...
... morning to do that, caught the 0415 airplane, arrived at the MNL hospital at 0600 and is still waiting in line as I write this at 1200. (Later, at 1430: Ivy texted me saying "I am sure that there are 15 steps and I have done 7, so there are 8 steps more. Don't worry, I am still smiling. I will hang in there." Later still, at 1540, she told me that she was still in line.) She wisely chose the last flight out of MNL for her return at 2300. I thought that ...
... than 30 minutes slower than my time in Chicago this past September, but still ranked in the top 30% of all racers that day! (had I run the same time I had in Chicago, I'd have been in the top 5%...just behind the Kenyans...an hour behind the Kenyans, to be sure, but still...).
One positive note about the course -- it went past several attractions that I remember from my first visit, including Ft. San ...
