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.

Nope, stayed in the room. Watched ...
... a.m. and transportation to the dock at 4:30 a.m. Needless to say, we didn't receive the knock and when we arrived at reception at 4:15 there was no hint of transportation for us. Luckily there was a group of 4 Philippinos and an old miserable American guy who had arranged their own transportation, and even though the American didn't seem keen on the idea, the Philippino's allowed us to share their van. We agreed to pay the driver 150 pesos ...
... a drink etc. I was going to head for Colon Street which is supposed to be the oldest street there and quite lively in parts with shops etc. But then stopped at an internet cafe in the way and it's a good job I did. There were warnings from people just saying to stay away from Colon Street especially at night but even during the day. Mainly if you're foreign I presume but after reading that and being on my own I decided to walk back up to the other main ...
... 1,000php at a time. I arrived at 0930hrs and filled out the required forms, handed them to receiving desk one and waited. Within minutes i was called and given my clearance and an Official Receipt. its been 2830php for the last few months however this month it was 3145php as i had to pay for annual reporting. Great. However the service provided at the cebu office is pretty slick, i was in and out within one ...
... whilst we contemplated the likelihood of Boris Johnson cracking out a musical number, maybe “I dreamed a dream”. We decided for Nick Clegg it would have to be, “Sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare,” with Gordon and David dancing provocatively in the background. One of the speakers was a guy from Japanese Youth, who gave a great speech, and accompanied us to Ayala for a Japanese film festival. “How to Become Myself” turned out not to be an amazing ...
