    Sampaguita Suites is a small hotel which is right in the middle of Cebu. The rates are a bit lower than most other hotels in the area. Stores, restaurants, banks and many establishments are just at the door step, so it is quite convenient to go around on foot. The hotel is directly in front of a busy street, so remember this. Free wi-fi in the lobby, and there is a bar and restaurant as well.

hello pips!!!me and my friends(group of 7) will be in cebu for the sinulog fest on jan 17-19/09 and i was just wondering which hotel would have the best view of the parade but at the same time, affordable and comfy? someone suggested hotel de merced but not sure how the rooms are.cebu midtown hotel was also brought up but its kinda pricy(ill be paying for hotel and food ya see)any siggestion will be much appreciated)thanks a bunch!!!!

Re: please help

Hi.. there are smaller hotels along the parade route.. but it doesn't matter that much because most fo the uptown area will be closed to traffic from 9am til around 6 pm, so pedestrians own the streets during sinulog. I would suggest that you stay in one of the smaller hotels just a block from the main parade route for several reasons... i've stayed in some of them but not during sinulog, they are much more well maintained, they are not that crowded and noisy. These are usually hotels near the capitol area or mango avenue.. try paragon hotel (with free potable water), palladium (much newer rooms), sampaguita suites (carpeted, so might not be advisable if you have lung problems) apple tree suites, to name a few. Prices would range from 800-1400 pesos... check them out on the internet if you want, and i can book them for you..you have to make reservations now..they get fully booked pretty fast for sinulog

Re: please help

by chictraveller

how much is your budget? usually hotels during sinulog are fully booked, so it's best to book very early for this. cebu midtown is a bit pricey during that time since they have a very good view of the parade. if you guys don't mind walking a bit, you could choose a hotel that's located on a side street but a short walk away from the main road :)

Midtown is the best hotel to view the parade, pricey or not.

You won't see anything at all from the Mercedes but the parade passes by a block and a half from Mercedes so it is easy to walk to see it.

golden prince is one of the newer hotels in the area and it's a few blocks from ayala center mall, however, it is a bit far from the parade route. elegant circle inn is also along fuente osmena, but i dont know if the rooms are facin the parade route. try the former park place hotel, i think it;s now called rajah hotel... it looks old outside, but i've been inside, and their rooms are ok. again, you have to request for a room that is facing the fuente circle

Travel Tips for Cebu City

A great mix

by jamiesamui about Spice Fusion

Spice Fusion is as it`s title says a mixture of several S/E Asian countries & some of their cullinary delights.

This restaurant offers you the opportunity to select meals from different places & also different meal types.

Spice Fusion offers both A/C indoor dining or as I did you can dine Alfresco & seats probably 100 combined.

The night I was there wasn`t packed but a good crowd was in attendence.Your order was taken promptly,drinks served within 5 mins of being ordered & food was delivered within 20 mins of being ordered which was 3 good size mains & a rice platter.Waiters always attentive & willing to attend to whatever it was you needed.

Spice Fusion is in my opinion fairly well priced for an upper class restaurant,3 mains & large fried rice platter 4 Bottles SML & 2 fruit shakes cost around 1300 PHP which for me is less than $35 AUD.

A good experience would definetly return.

NB:: Spice Fusion is now open in the new north wing of SM Mall The Sweet & Sour Pork was nice.The BBQ Beef Satay also enjoyable as was the Shanghai fried rice.I particularily liked the size of the meals

Not that great!!

by DJ_Rolo about Fiji Restaurant at Plantation Bay

I heard so many good things about the seafood in Cebu, so i thought it would be really good, being Plantation Bay is a 5 star resort. I was tricked. I had lobster, crawfish, and some other food and for 6 people it cost over $200 US. Now im not complaining about the price, cuz over here thats normal but i just thought the food would be really really good, when it really wasnt. Like i said before im not much of a seafood lover so i thought it was just me, but that was pretty much the consensus of all of us. One good thing was their drinks, they make this Plantation bay specialty blended drink, i had a couple of those!!! oh yeah and the kalbi was pretty good, thats the korean bbq... With that being said, Plantation Bay is a really beautiful resort... This one specialty blended drink, you gotta try it!!!

Basilica del Minore Sto. Nino

by kemisteryoso

If you want to get more holy at the same time learn something about the Birth place of Christianity in the Philippines then visit this church with towering façade with Romanesque and classical architecture. The church was rebuilt in 1602 in 1735 and was completed in 1739. It is It is the oldest church in Cebu.

Inside the church, you will see painting on the ceilings that reminds me of the Sistine chapel in Rome and old relic of Saints. The image of the Santo Niño, which is kept in the parish convent, is considered the oldest religious relic in the Philippines. This was the image that Magellan gave to Queen Juana as a gift during the baptism of King Humabon and his wife Queen Juana on April 14, 1521.

Another thing that makes this church unique is that Candle vendors wearing colorful clothes in yellow, red or green dance their payers. I am not sure it is an ethnic dance or not. I can’t see much step but just forward then backward. The candle vendors at Magellan’s cross did the same thing.

Can be found along Osmena blvrd. The church is near with other Cebu landmarks like Magellan’s Cross, Old Cebu City hall, Metropolitan Cathedral, Plaza Independencia, Fort San Pedro and Malacang de Cebu. I rode a Jeepney from Capitol building and it is just around 100 meters away after you passed Colon St.
