Hotel central to Cebu

The hotel was easy access from the city and only short distances to walk for shops. The foyer was air conditioned and a pleasure to sit in after a day in the hot weather. The staff very helpful and a good restruant in the lobby area.
On arrival the staff caused no delay in getting me to fill any forms for my stay. Although it was not busy at the time I was shown my room within minutes of checking in. It was adequate for myself to use it as a place to sleep and the bed was comfortable, the sheets a bit musty, but the air conditioning cooled the room to have a good sleep at night. Lighting was reasonable in the room. Could have used something to hang my wet clothes on after rinsing them from a hot day out, had to use back of chairs. Not much to look at outside, just back streets. Telephone in room was useful after I purchased a phone card, no extra charges by hotel. Shower was warm, but occasionally had a cool shower when it was hot outside.
Shopping Tip: Plenty of places to get snacks nearby.

Nice,clean and cheap accodmodation !!

location , location and location !!
I had a good stay in this hotel. Location is its prime advantage if you stay here, easily accessible to various transport means. Room is big and clean. But water pressure is pretty low, so it takes more time for taking a shower. No cable channel only local ones. For the Price you pay for this hotel , I think is good enough. Don't expect too much.
Nightlife Tip: it's pretty to Mango Square , where there are a number of Bars and disco. it takes only about no more than 10 mins walk from the hotel.

Lage, Preis, Ausstattung
Ich buche das Diplomat regelmäßig bei Ankunft in Cebu, da es ein optimales Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis bietet. Aufgrund der günstigen Lage des Hotels sind viele Highlights in kürzester Zeit zu erreichen (Robinson, Ayala Center, Mango-Square) etc.. Die Zimmer sind in gutem Zustand, werden täglich gereinigt und die Zusatzkosten (Minibar, Frühstück) sind auf erfreulich niedrigem Preisniveau. Das Personal ist freundlich und hilfsbereit, Taxistand direkt vor der Tür. Die Fahrt zum Flughafen kostet mit Metered-Taxis rd. 180 Peso.

Economy room which is not clean

good location, close to Robison mall and city center
I thought the room rate was cheap but when I found ants (i am not sure but look like) are on two beds then I think I should not stay at this hotel, or at least the standard room in this hotel next time.

What you got for how much you pay

City centre location; faster services feedback when I request towel and pillow; centre of night life
I stay 2 nights in this hotel, no double bed provided; the quality is acceptable because cheaper price at city centre location; 5 minutes walk to Robinson shopping mall; food court and large supermarket in Robinson shopping mall; 10 minutes walk to Cebu Tower(highest tower in Cebu); delicious Thai restaurant at the right side of the hotel
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: 7 minutes drive to Ayalta centre; 15 minutes drive to SM city and pier; 15 minutes drive to Cross; PHP300 taxi to Airport

Diplomat Hotel is Quite Nice

Hotel has good accessibility.
Our stay in this hotel is quite alright. However, when we entered the room and checked-in, there was a heavy cigarette smell inside as if someone who smoked just left the room. We opened the windows and turned-on the exhaust in the toilet to let the smell subside as it was terrible! We tried to look where the smell was coming from but there was no physical source we can see inside the room. I think they have some faulty ventilation. One more thing is that we have to climb up the stairs to the second floor and there was no elevator going to our room. We were expecting that there was an elevator even to lower floors so it is convenient for the guests to go up and down the hotel in case they forget something or they have kids staying with them. Stair walls have a lot of nasty and dirty scrathes and such an eye sore when you climb up the stairs. I think they should clean them. There was no breakfast and I think they don't really serve breakfast for guests. Anyway, you can order from Room Service and the good thing is you can order delivery outside food providers. No charges for outside local calls and that's a possitive one in a way. The cabinets don't have closures so you cannot assure that your clothes will be dust free when you put them out of your luggage bag. They only have one chair inside the room so either one of you (if you are a couple)can only seat on the chair when you are eating your meal inside the room or you just end up eating on the bed. When the guests happen to be a couple, the staff don't offer one matrimonial bed instead of one separate single beds. I think they should be sensitive also on that type of need of the guests. Consequently, my wife and I have to sleep on one single bed! On the other hand, the hotel is quite near downtown so you don't have to spend more on cab fares. There are also a lot of cabs parked outside so there is no difficulty getting one.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: It's very near the Crown Regency Hotel which offers some adventure recreations. Only around Php35 fare when you take a cab and you can be there in like 5 mins! Maybe you can also from Diplomat Hotel to there! In a way, it's more cost efficient if you stay in Diplomat Hotel especially if you are saving money and just concerned on sleeping there after your whole day jaunts.

Cebu Experience

The hotel is ideally situated. The hotel staff are warm, courteous and accommodating. Hotel rates are affordable.
If you are looking for a cheap hotel in the heart of Cebu, this is one hotel, I could recommend. The hotel staff are ready to assist you anytime of the day or night. They are very courteous too. There are nearby fastfood chains where you can eat anytime. The location of the hotel is somewhat safe.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: You can go to nearby Crown Regency Hotel and experience the "Sky walk" and "Survive the edge". It's really fun.

Quick stay at Diplomat

The room I stayed was big, that it!
Diplomat was one of the worse places I stayed in my Asia travels, I would not recommend this place unless you are looking for a cheap place to stay and only looking for a bed to stay, I only stayed there for one night and could not stay there any more. There are better hotels that you can book in Cebu than this one for the similar prices. There are many boutique hotels, I do suggest to look around.

The hotel is situated in a fairly quiet area away from noisy street areas. Close to mall, restaurants etc, approximately 5 minutes walk.The staff were very friendly and helpful.The rooms as well as the bathrooms were clean.The hotel is really good value for money. We would stay there again if we return to Cebu.
