I stayed at a place called Roseate Pension. It was about 2 blocks from the Crown Regency hotel (with the skywalk at the top of it.) If I recall correctly, we paid about $20 U.S. for a room with AC, hot water and two beds. It might have been $20 each but I think it was $20 total. That is a bit over the 800 pesos but not by a lot. I don't recall the exact amount we paid though so give them a call if that is in the right area.
I have no clue what part of town that was in as it was near my friends family and they found the pension for me.
Clean, airconditioned and inexpensive
There are 37 rooms equipped with cable TV, hot and cold shower and NDD/IDD phones. There is WIFI but you need to pay for the service. The cafe at the lobby is open from 6am to 10pm. There are functions rooms too. Walking distance to many dining places, banks, drugstore, malls, karaoke places, Churches and many other business establishments.
Apple Tree Suites t is conveniently situated in a quiet neighborhood and short walk to several restaurants and shops. Fuente Osmeña circle is quite closeby. The rooms are air conditioned and wi-fi is free.
it is my 3rd time in cebu city, 2nd time around this year thats why cebu city again. last may from my trip in cebu-bohol we stay here in pacific pensionne. so its my 2nd time in pacific pensionne. kinda familiar around the place.

Good day! I just came back from Cebu. My husband competed at Mr. & Ms. Philippines 2009. We arrived earlier than the competition date so we decided to book at a hotel and picked la guardia. Because of all the hotels I have emailed La guardia was so eager to reply to me and room rate is 550. When we got there at first sight we feel slightly disappointed because it is really located at a very old building so first impression its not safe but when we entered the hotel people are nice and accomodation is ok. Accesible to many amenities like we did go to a gym just infront because he has to workout a little bit for the contest. We have to go to barber shop for his haircut. Food is just downstairs.. We love the foodpark at colon, especially chorizo de cebu and the 5pesos barbeque. Malls are everywhere.. Walking distance to metro gaisano, unitop, elizabeth mall.. and most of all the center of attraction to cebu which is the basilica sto nino and magellan's cross. And there are jeepney rides going to everywhere.. Very good if you really want to experience cebu city
If you are looking for cheap accomodation in Cebu, try YMCA you only need to register for P100 to become a member (only members are allowed to used facility or check in) if you are in a group of 4 you can get P800/night (200/head) the room w/ aircon has 2 bunk beds & private toilet, its like a dorm type. or P600 for double occupancy room, there are 2 single bed in the room w/ ac & private toilet with hot/cold shower. This is good for those who travels in a budget and just want to see Cebu. At night you can see the lights from Regency Hotel's 'walk in the sky'
They offer free breakfast w/ coffee to all guest, great to start the day espacially if you have lots of touring/shopping to do.
What a place. We paid 800 P for 24 hour occupancy and got a room which is dark like cave because it has no window. We stayed only one night at Sogo then we decided to leave Cebu anyways - it's not a cheap place and town isn't nice either. The place also stank of fresh paint. Had porn programme on TV. Guards were the friendliest people in the house... seems one of those places where some bring ladies for couple of hours. In general felt safe, looked clean.
The Rooms were clean and comfortable. The Price was cheap. So for the price, you will pay a little bit in lack of scenery. I wasn't there to stare out the window, so this was perfect for me. The service was excellent, and I never had to ask for anything more than once.
Location , Location, Location.......and price....may be the best hotel for it's price in Cebu.
This wonderful resort tucked away in the island of Mactan provides great accommodations, a number of food outlets, series of activities and relaxation programs for the traveler who wants to get away from the many stresses in life.
across ayala mall (uptown area of cebu city)- as in literally you just cross the street and a parking lot to reach the mall. around or less than 2 minutes leisure walk (this i think is nearer than when you stay at Parklane hotel). we stayed in a standard room (1800/night with buffet bf - breads, rice, eggs, daing bangus (dried milkfish), champorado, tuyo (dried fish), congee, juice, coffee, bananas, etc). the room we got has windows facing ayala mall, has individual type of aircon, okei beds, CR with hot and cold shower, complimentary towels and shampoo/soap, dresser and clothes cabinet, cable tv. staff are friendly and courteous. if you're hungry the hotel's resto is quite affordable plus you just have to cross over to ayala mall and choose amongst the restasurants/coffee shops, etc. jeepneys/taxis are not a problem since they just ply in front of the bldng or are lined up in ayala mall.
cons: the aircon can't seem to cool the room during daytime. the aircon's quite new but i think they need to fix this. can hear sounds from cars/jeeps outside from our window (but bearable for me)
P.S. we got a room with window view of ayala mall. some rooms are windowless.
I reserved a Standard room for one night over the phone. The reservation officer listed down all my details. My mobile number, type of room, breakfast details, and check in/out time. I highlighted that our check in time will be late because we will be coming from Malapascua Island.
When we arrived there around 4pm, the reservation asked my name and look it up on the list. To my surprise, the front desk told me that I don't have a reservation. She keep asking my name. There are four ladies in the front desk and can't tell what happend to our reservation. I was really tired then and starting to get irate. Instead of getting us a room, they told me to wait for a call to confirm my reservation. I waited for the call but no to avail. Obviously, the very inefficient reservation officer listed my booking details in the air. After 5 minutes or so, the front desk told me that they no longer have standard room, even superior with double bed. It was really a waste of time and effort to go there and yet to received such welcome. Net, we leave the hotel and proceed to Sarossa which is just few meters away from that unfriendly hotel.
It was initially not easy for us to find La Guardia because the signage was really small, and Colon, where it's located looks very much like Recto in Manila. Instead of an entrance door by the sidewalk, what we saw first was a steep flight of stairs that led to the entrance on the second floor.
The room we got was only P550/night. There was also a P300 "incidental deposit". Though cheap, the room was decent, clean, comfortable, and airconditioned. They don't automatically replace the complimentary soaps and shampoos nor make-up your room though, you'll have to inform the receptionist if you want those things done. We also saw many expat backpackers and families staying at the hotel, which told us that it's a pretty decent place to stay in.
During the day, the area surrounding the hotel was quite safe, but it's different at night. In the evening near the entrance of the hotel were homeless people. I've got nothing against them, but it did make me more wary of going back to the hotel late at night.
We found out that the receptionists don't actually know how to go to tourist spots outside of downtown Cebu. You're better off getting a map, or better yet, researching directions on your own.
The hotel offers unlimited free drinking water to all its guest. You'll just have to go to the reception area to get it.
if you hate the city noise and you want some seclution and privacy, this is the right place for you to stay. very far from the main business district of cebu, the food is expensive one meal composed of three fried chicken coated with heavy flour cost you 237.00 pesos. drinks is excluded. steak 800.00 pesos per serving. huh... room rate 3,555.00 pesos that cannot pass the standard of a 3 star hotel. hamburger is 240.00 pesos. still i will recomend these hotel to those who want to be left alone.
staffs are accomodating and courteous
We stay in Business Hotel during our trip in Cebu because it is in the heart of the City proper.
very accessible to mall and transportation...
I stayed at the SDR Apartments, they're located in Mactan and extremely nice. We paid $50 US a night, but very very nice apartment. There's a small kitchen, and a living room/bedroom. It's walking distance from a small mall and lots of restaurants. Would definitely recommend to anyone. They also have internet downstairs for a small fee and shaky wifi in the rooms.
