    Excellent place close to the ferry piers.


    I was not really suppose to stay here in the first place as i was just passing through on my way to Mindanao island, but i fell ill upon arrival and decided that i would find a hotel where i could sleep things out before continuing my voyage.
    I went to the Sampaguita Suites after a local girl in a coffeeshop recommended it to me and i was very happy there.
    It's a middle class hotel with some very competitive rates and being close to where the ferries leave to other islands i could easily pop down there and inquire about times and prices while i was waiting for my flu to pass.
    The room i had was very fine and spotless clean and it had a nice funtional bathroom.
    Staff at the reception was very attentive during my stay and and so was the rest of the staff members i came across.
    The hotel has a very nice little coffeeshop on the second floor where they have light meals and drinks.
    I especially enjoyed their breakfast there.
    The coffeeshop also has free wifi and i spend a great deal of time there while nursing my flu as i did not feel like going out but had enough energy to sit and write a few mails.
    This is a place i was all in all very happy with and it's a perfect place to stay if you are catching a ferry from Cebu the next day.

    Directions: Right next to the main square and just a 5 minute walk from the ferry piers.

  • Good Hotel Location


    The stay was good. The staff are friendly. The price is very affordable considering it's close to tourists spots (Magellan's Cross, Sto. Nino Basilica) and walking distance to Fort San Pedro and Plaza Independencia.

    Room Rates:

    Single Standard (Good for 1 Person) P698
    Matrimonial Standard (Good for 2 Persons) P898
    Double Standard (Good for 2 Persons) P998
    Triple Standard (Good for 3 Persons) P1,198
    Family Standard (Good for 3 Persons) P1,198
    Barkada Room (Good for 4 Persons) P1,298
    Family Executive (Good for 4 Persons) P1,398

    The only thing that I'm having issues with is the elevator(the up and down arrow button is hard to press) and the towels(not so white though I know it's clean) and there are a lot of beggars outside the hotel. Anyway, we already informed the management about it and they said that they will do necessary actions about it.

    Directions: Very close to Magellan's Cross.
    Near the City Hall.
    Across La Nueva Supermarket.

Travel Tips for Cebu City

towels can be useful

by englishlalaki

clothes are so cheap to buy in the philippines, you dont need to bring many at all. you can buy a t-shirt for £1 - £2 and a good pair of shorts for £3 too if you shop around. footwear comes just as cheap. No need to buy a rain coat, its better to buy a small umbrella. take plenty of cream for bites. repellants tend not to work in my experience so you need things to take away the itch and soreness. Something to steralize the water that you wash your teeth with may be useful dont forget camera batteries. Though batteries in AA or AAA are cheap there, other sizes may be difficult to find. a towel is always useful. in case of a heavy downpour you may need a rub down, also there are hotels with no towels.

Pizza Galore

by freddie18 about Greenwich

Whenever I visit the Philippines, I always take the opportunity to have a taste of one of the best pizza in town.

In Cebu, I made it a point that I do not miss the crunchy pizza that until now I believe have captured my taste buds. I especially like the crust, no doubt about it.

Greenwich is a famous pizza parlour in the Philippines and in Cebu City in particular. Take a bite or two, and you will know how good this pizza is. But mind you, it is not only pizza, there are more snacks to choose from.

You will surely enjoy the place...and the pizza!

Spanish Wine Bar

by johnrxx99 about Wineshop

An authentic looking wine bar with an excellent selection of Spanish wine and reasonible food. Gets busy at the weekend and has a loyal following. Has good tapas and otherwise Filipino food and pizza

Historically Inclined

by galatea234

Relive the glory that was Cebu. Visit the famed Magellan's Cross site (it wouldn't be an official Cebu trip if you didn't visit and had your picture taken in this place), this symbolizes the Philippines' acceptance of Christianity. Right beside the site is the Sto.Nino Church, the oldest church in the Philippines. This is where the image of Sto. Nino given to Hara Amihan (who was later baptized to be Queen Juana) is being kept. The feast of this patron saint is celebrated every 3rd week of January, widely known as the most colorful festival of the region; The Sinulog Festival. Take a tour at Colon street, the oldest street of the Philippines. First barter was exchanged here. Then proceed to Tabuan to buy those danggits, dried squid, chicharon, dried mangoes etc. etc.

Taoist Temple

by tidzy

We visited the Taoist Temple and was shown around by a mute person. We got to ask questions to their gods using liver-shaped pieces of wood. You could ask three questions, if both pieces face up, it is a yes, if one is facing down its a maybe and if both are facing down, its a no.
