It was no window in the cheap typ of room. The aircon was blowing on the bed.
“Value for money”
Location is very good and not hard to find. It's a few blocks from Gaisano Grand Mall. Lots of stores and restaurants are also nearby. Easily accessible too. Cabs pass by all the time and it's also near a tricycle terminal.
Staff are friendly and accommodating. I left my bag with them after check-out so I can buy some stuff at Gaisano.
Room - smelled good, clean, bed is a little too soft for me but given that this is a budget hotel, I wasn't expecting much. There was a dog barking loudly on my second night but it didn't keep me from getting a good sleep. :) The hotel is located along an access road going to the beach resorts at Mactan so you may hear the sound of vehicles passing by. Restroom walls needs a bit of a cleaning though, it already has stains. Again, nothing too bothersome. I had a good stay here. :)
If you're staying here, I suggest requesting a room farthest from the reception so you don't hear people walking to their rooms.
Place is near to the airport with good ambiance.
“Nice Clean Rooms ”
Clean, location, big bed
Honestly this hotel is Perfect for a 1 night stay leaving or coming from the airport. The location is about 8-10 min taxi from the airport. It sets next to a mall with plenty of food options and a couple of local restaurants on the way. Other than the mall there isn't a lot to do. There is no door to the bathroom however it didn't come as a problem for me at all. No water on the floor or anywhere. The bed is huge. Small tv with a lot of channels to choose from. Nice cozy room. And the best room I've stayed in since I've arrived in the Philippines, however I am a backpacker usually laying $8-10 a night. The front desk guy was extremely helpful with all my questions and even stayed up until 5am to flag me a taxi to head to the airport.
clean, big bed, quiet
Excellent at supplying basic needs. Clean and simple room. Good value for the money.
ok but dont like the open toilet/shower. lots of cockroaches.
“Noisy busy location but safe gate”
3 big beds for 2 people, safe gate, TV
Good for one night before heading to airport. 3 minute walk to okay mall. Very loud at night trying to sleep, LOTS of traffic and tricycles. Mall is entertaining for about 1 hour. Staff is very friendly
location price clean
Friendly staff. Quick check in and out. 5 min walk to the mall. Short drive from the airport. Nice and original room setting
“Nouvelle Bedroom and Bathroom Design”
Fresh room design in a budget hotel
Overall it was average. What drew me to the hotel was the room design.
It has a huge wall-to-wall bed, that touches three walls (left, right and rear wall). And the bathroom is an indoor "open" bathroom. It is separated from the bedroom by a glass wall. There is no door between the bed and the bath.
One of their San Francisco Hotel's staff deserves a commendation for her helpfulness in sharing her knowledge of public transportation. One female staff was key to understanding the jeepney, tricycle and ferry routes around the hotel and airport. Well done, and thank you so much.
The hotel is rather new, but the upkeep has not been great. I requested two room transfers because of a faulty air-conditioner in the first room, and a faulty sink drain pipe in the second room.
The hotel is not conspicuous.
