Good hotel to stay in Dumaguete
Good staff and service, too noisy in the night

Room airconditioning is so bad. Even when the setting was low, we hardly felt any comfort. Room was a bit pricey for its condition hence value for money was not achieved

Hala ! Best hotel perks in Dumaghete.
Excellent location in the heart of the city. Friendly and helpful, professional, accomodating staff serving customer needs with a smile and dedicated courtesy. Safe location day or night. Old historic hotel (as is most hotels available online in this location that have been renovated) but We love it 😊. Power loss is common in this area. at the time of this posting this old concrete, 8 floor hotel has been on generator power all day so far with the rest of the city in the dark😊 Hot and humid outside. Quiet and cool inside.

The overall services is excellent. However, WIFI ant internet access is very weak to none existent. My room is on the forth floor but the maintenance personnel are very noisy and continues to work after 7:00pm. When it’s already time to go to sleep.
