Unspectacular, town hotel close to the Cebu City nightlife (Mango Square) (map). However, be careful when selecting a room. At first I was given a tiny room with twin beds.
I was given a standard room the next day – it was a corner room right at the top of the building. Super, for 1500 without breakfast – suddenly the world looks to be completely different. The room is a lot better, light around the corner, large enough; the bathroom’s a lot better too. See, it’s even worth moving just for a few nights.
The staff are very friendly, almost too friendly. The room maids seem to be afraid to take the tip I leave on the pillow, it’s lying in the middle of the bed as I return to my freshly made up room – never seen anything like that before – I give it to them later, is important to me with them all doing a hard job well – probably for a pittance.
All in all a recommendation, especially if you only want to stop for a few nights right in the middle of the nightlife. At first I stopped in the “M Citi Suites” exactly opposite, or better said, I didn’t even move in. I wonder how the place got its good Agoda rating on... a dark hole where nothing functions. That’s the reason why I moved into the Cuarto.
