New Luxury Hotel w/ buffet breakfast across from Parkmall ”
5 star service for affordable rates. Nice design features throughout. Perfect for any occaisson. Great location between Cebu & Mandaue across from the very new Parkmall. Many fine eateries just outside! Everything in the area is clean & new, quite a relief from the rest of the city. Near bureau of immigration & DFA. If you have kids the Playzone in Parkmall will guard your kids while you do your business around town & they won't even miss you. I love BIG Hotel!
We had fun but there are few cons”
It's next to parkmall so we stroll around the mall when we got bored at the hotel and next to city time square. We had fun taking pictures inside the room, at the balcony and at the lobby. Breakfast was very good as well. Balcony view is nice, you see decent city lights from the buildings nearby. Transportation is easy & accessible. Just a few cons. There were cups and coffee in the room but no water heater, so we were not able to drink the coffee. The big hotel suite has water heater, I don't know this one doesn't have. No rug outside the bathroom, the room is not carpeted. So after shower, you will eventually get the floor wet since there's no rug when you step out the bathroom The lock detector is not working, at one point, our last time to get inside the room, the lock detector could not detect the card, we ask help to the cleaner then the cleaner ask help to the bell man, it was defective The elevator has a small space. I think this is the smallest elevator I have encountered.
Beautifully designed hotel, great location, great service”
BIG Hotel Cebu has beautiful interiors! Every area is picture perfect worthy! Even the fire exit stairs has designs! The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is tummy filling - they serve Cebu's notable dishes. The room is clean and spacious. There is an art gallery on the ground floor featuring Cebu's local artists. All the paintings are for sale.The location is right in front of Park Mall and beside the hotel are restaurants, convenience stores and even a karaoke bar. It's also 15 - 20 minutes away from the famous Magellan's Cross. I just wish they had a swimming pool as part of their facilities.
No Cebu hotel has a friendlier staff than Big Hotel. Mall is across the street, WALK. The bed, pillows are very comfy. Room is clean and very quiet. Breakfast sufficient. Bang for the buck, best in Cebu City. Do not pay too much at other hotels. Stay here!
Awesome Place ”
Staffs, Dining & Cleanliness It is a wonderful experience staying at Big Hotel. This is my 1st time staying in this Hotel and I couldn't find the words to describe how wonderful it was to stay here while I'm on vacation in Cebu. The room is spacious, clean and quite. The breakfast could have more variety for western dishes. The hotel is near park mall which good for day and night life. Overall good location and awesome hotel, Will book this hotel in June 17. again
Cozy within Metro”
Great staff! Perfect for Business Travel as it is situated within major business hub of Mandaue City. Just beside the hotel are lots of restaurant, convenience stores, and even a huge supermarket! Cons: Breakfast Buffet is below satisfaction.
EXCELLENT FACILITIES ”
The BIG HOTEL is in a very convenient location with many restaurants within a short walking distance and a large mall also. the room was clean and spacious, the staff were always pleasant with a smile and a greeting whenever they saw us, the restaurant had excellent food including the included breakfast. I will stay here again next time i am in Cebu and highly recommend this place to anybody and everybody.
Nice hotel... feels like home with friendly and accomdating staff members”
My dad and mom said that Big Hotel will be our family's official hotel when in Mandaue City. Feels like home.
Pleasant Business Hotel”
Great place to stay for business when most of your meetings or dealings are in the Mandaue area. It's situated right across the mall. The room was clean, comfy and spacious. I stayed overnight on a weekday. My request for late check out was granted by the reception staff. The breakfast food selection was quite nice. I would stay here again.
Good spot with room for improvement”
Have been here several times as it is strategically located between airport and ferry pier, with dozens of low priced local restaurants around the corner. BIG hotel is good value with breakfast buffet included. Downsides are no safe and no fridge in the room and the internet connection is quite terrible every single time. Don't count on it working, certainly not in the room. You would think that after a few years they got their act together with an effective WiFi network.
Value for money”
Location is excellent within Mandaue City area. Lot of restaurants and bars around the hotel. A 7-11 store is beside the hotel. Right across is a mall/supermarket
Hotel was gorgeous and we really loved the hotel. Our ship from Bohol ended up not being able to leave on time so we didn’t get in til really late which was disappointing because we only had one night there and didn’t really get to enjoy the hotel and the area like we wanted to. The location was perfect, right across the street from the mall and a big shopping center with tons of restaurants. Also super close to the airport. Decoration in the room and hotel was beautiful and we had a penthouse room which was a loft style room so we had tons of space. Breakfast was included and there was a huge selection to chose from. Would definitely stay here again!
Great hotel to stay! ”
I travel to cebu monthly and for a short stay, Big hotel has given me great experience to stay in. Lovely staff, good breakfast, comfortable rooms! Everything was awesome! Would love to go back here again.
You Get What You Pay”
It was a nice stay with BIG. The price itself is so pocket-friendly and their staffs are all welcoming and accommodating. Pros — clean and huge executive room. Foods are delish and place is convenient to nearby restos and shops. Cons — shower is worse, for real. Food choices are minimal. You can’t ask for 2 glasses of ice or more because they’re going to charge you. They can only give 1 free glass of ice. They auto-convert it to bucket and charge you P50. No personal fridge in the room. They only have 2 pillows (1 per guest) as the room we stayed was good for 2. Overall, still a recommendable place especially to those who don’t stay the whole day in the hotel.
Location is great especially for someone not from Cebu - near food establishments. Rooms are good (quite large) except for the bathroom-just like an ordinary house toilet,shower heads needs to be replaced or cleaned so water comes out of it. Was able to stay at a cheap new hotel and it has an exemplary bathroom and that was just less than a 1000 peso room! Breakfast food is too limited and bland. The staff were nice and fast in the check in and check out process. Overall, it was good!
My family and I had a great stay at BIG hotel. Convenient, close to the airport and Parkmall is just across the road. I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to roam around Cebu.
Excellent Location but very basic hotel”
We normally stay at the Marriott (now Seda) or Radisson when we stay in Cebu and this is our first time to stay at this hotel. I decided to book three rooms, 2 Penthouse and 1 Business Suite. The penthouse wasn't worth the price difference in my honest opinion. Yes, you would get a bigger space, and yes you have a bigger sofa and a "dining" table but that's about it. Everything else is basically the same. The most helpful tip i could possibly share is for you to get the Deluxe Room with the 2 Double Beds, that would be more comfortable. The penthouse only had 1 double bed by the way, AGODA mentioned that it had 2 double beds, which technically was not the case. The second "double" bed was in fact a convertible leather sofa bed.. The towels desperately needed to be changed. Water pressure was weak. Breakfast was decent though. and location was great. Decent basic hotel. Will not be going back though.
Excellent location and clean”
Stayed there for one night before leaving for our trip to Bohol. Chose it because it's near the pier and across Parkmall and next to City Times Square. Surprised when I asked the front desk guy why it's called BIG and he tells me it stands for Believe In God. Very nice. I just wished they put the exact Bible verse in the prints that they hanged in the rooms to avoid confusion. But all in all it was a good overnight stay. Despite having our room overlooking a somewhat busy street, we can't really hear much noive from outside.
great location, one or 2 downsides”
Park mall and dozens of restaurants and bars in short walking distance. Nice hotel, but lack of kettle and especially in room safe is a bummer. About equidistant to airport and pier one. Expect traffic every daylight hour. It's a go to place when you must overnight in Cebu.
You get more than what you pay for”
GREAT! ... Interior design, ambiance, location, food (must-try chili crab). Very comfortable, strategically located near go-to places in Cebu City and Mandaue areas. Food served on time just within 15 mins. Food is great. Breakfast is great. I hope I won't be disappointed next time.
