Budget!
The location is near some cafés a d restaurant. The room be booked is a triple room. It was kinda big and spacious. The room is clean and the AC was able to cool the room up. The CR was disappointing. The water pressure is low. The shower head is busted and the flush is not working. *some hookers are loitering outside the premises of this building with their pimps. Overall good enough for the the price and a place to sleep.

Suitable Place to Sleep In
Most of my meetings would be in the area of Gen. Maxillom Avenue in Cebu Cty. I also knew that my three days would be long and hectic so I had to choose a place that was centrally located and affordable. Pricewise, nothing could beat. For what I paid, the room was far bigger than in some pension houses. Airconditioning worked well except that the switch was defective. I had to plug it in to turn it on and plug it out to turn it off. The plastic curtains in the shower room were acceptable but newer ones would be desirable. Still, a suitable place to sleep in after a very long day.

It defines AFFORDABLE when in Cebu
Actually with my two stays here. They gave me a good room. Room 39 and Room 40 to be exact. First time I stayed here, room had no towels. Good thing on the second time they already gave me not only one but two. Place is good if your'e really on a very very tight budget and just need someplace to sleep and put your bags on. Single Bed rate is 699php Twin Bed are is 750php If you check in after 3:00am you can still check out the day after 12:00nn But if you check in before 3:00am then you have to check out around noon time. Additional hour after check out time is 50.00 php Some occupants smoke outside their rooms or inside and you can smell it when you walk going to where your room is located. They have an old elevator which is pretty useful to have a quick access to the ground floor. Don't use their coffee machine, it took 20.00 pesos from me and the lady in the front desk who is unhelpful and always sleeping just said that I cannot do anything about it anymore.

This is a budget pension house, not the ritz!
I have stayed here twice! The rooms are what they say it is. Its budget! they are clean but old. Some of the taps leaked but not to bad. I have been in a twin room and a double room. It is walking distance to everything. Great coffee house across the road and Robinson mall and restaurants are all close. Always taxi and tricycles going past if u need them!

Cheap place to stay as a last resort
I was in Cebu for a single night. Like what a reviewer mentioned, it does have a sad, gloomy atmosphere to it and all the other issues with it. Although I didn't stay when there was a nearby construction site, I still thought the aircon was loud as heck. But I still had a good sleep nonetheless. Poor locking system on the door ( I believe a lock usually meant for a bathroom stall was used to lock it from the inside - besides the built-in lock in the knob). Conclusion: If you don't care of all the other amenities and need to find some place asap for peanuts, and short-term and there's nothing else, only then will I recommend this place. Otherwise, find somewhere else and spend that extra 100 pesos or so.
