A Hidden Gem”

I asked a friend who is a local of Dumaguete but he is unfamiliar to Golden Gate Suites but based on recommendation and rating of Agoda, I went ahead and booked 2 rooms with the agreement to pay upon check in. I am satisfied not only because the transaction happened as agreed, the room is new and clean with strong wifi. Even if the hotel is in downtown Dumaguete, I slept well with no noise from the street. Very convenient as it is just walking distance from Siliman, the Port, Rizal Boulevard, and Sans Rival.

For On-The-Go Travellers”

The Golden Gate Suites is perfect for on-the-go travelers. It's located in the city, and is close to most points of interest - restaurants, hospital, church, the boulevard, the park, market and groceries, shops, public transportation, and is only about 10-15 minutes from the airport. It is also great for getting R&R, being detached from all the hustle and bustle of city life, as the rooms are private and peaceful. It has all the basics one needs. Staff are very courteous and helpful, rooms are clean and functional. This was my second stay, and I'm sure there will be more.

Great Location but the AC needs maintenance”

Golden Gate Suites' location is very ideal very near our preferred spots in the area. Walking distance to the market where you can try eating breakfast at Painitan, minutes walk to the famous Sans Rival and the bay area. Plus is a 7-11 convenience store located in the first floor and the services of the blinds for a great massage after a whole day of strolling the city. The only downside was that our room's air-conditioning unit was not in good condition, it's not cool even if it's in the lowest temperature setting already. I told the receptionist about it upon our check-out but she just said that may be it needs some cleaning. They should not give the room to guests if the AC is not in good condition in the first place.

Good value for money”

The best thing about it was its location-- ten minutes from the airport (costs 120 pesos); 4 blocks from the bay walk; 2 blocks away from the public market where you can have a nice traditional local breakfast; close to banks and restaurants. I particularly appreciate the hotel's "what to do in Dumaguete in a day" advice. The staff were courteous and helpful. The bathroom was a lot more spacious than what is typically found in hotels of the same rating. Most flights into Dumaguete seem to arrive in the morning. So, if you want to check in early, it will cost you an additional 200 pesos. Overall, I recommend it and would consider staying here again.

Value for money and location!”

It is a 5 minute walk to Sansrival store, one of the "yummiest" and well known pastry store of Dumaguete. It is located at the center of the city. Unfortunately during our stay, the typhoon paulo had heavy rains and thunder storms. We did not have the chance to visit manjuyod sandbar and dolphin watching. Nonetheless, the room is really great. Since we came from flight from cebu, to whale watching and canyoneering in cebu, we are craving for a nice, comfortable bed and.... Cravings satisfied! Thank you for your great employees. Very helpful and genuine. Kudos to you guys!

Comfy stay, but still can be improved”

Beds and pillows were comfortable and clean. TV and cable were working well. We asked the reception to make up our rooms but when we came back in the evening, we saw that our rooms were completely untouched. Apparently, our request was listed (as confirmed by one of the staff) but housekeeping did not bother doing it. I guess we'll never know why. This is quite minor though as housekeeping can still be trained or whoever is in charge should double check their work. Overall, our stay with Golden Gate Suites was fine. The receptionist was nice. A water dispenser was available in the lobby and we had multiple refills. The room assigned to us were far from the streets so noise from outside was very minimal.

Best Value for Money!”

Stayed overnight in Dumaguete. Though this is not our 1st choice hotel, we enjoyed our stay. PROS: Clean & quiet room, reception staff is helpful and accommodating, a/c is cool and have complimentary soap & shampoo. Loved the 7/11 convenience store below the hotel. CONS: Hot/Cold Shower has low pressure of water. But definitely, we'll consider staying again in the future if we will come back in Dumaguete.

Good location, comfortable room.”

The room was small but all the essentials were there. Walk about 10 mins to the sea side area. Close to restaurants, an ATM, the 7/11, a bakeshop. Hot water shower. Contrary to other reviews, the room was not too loud. You could hear a little bit of engine noise, but if the AC is on it's almost entirely blocked out. And although there is traffic noise, people in Dumaguete don't seem to use their car horns like crazy (barely at all), so that's nice.

Location is definitely great - walking distance from the city and lots of nearby restaurants where you can eat. Room was clean and comfortable enough. Staff are friendly and accommodating. We had to rebook our stay because all trips to Siquijor are cancelled so our vacation was cut short. Good thing they allowed to move our reservation to an earlier date. Appreciate it! We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Dumaguete.

Best Priced Hotel In Dumaguete”

Best value for money in Dumaguete, we stayed in a suite for just above PHP 2K, We have our very own kitchen. It is in the center of the city walking distance from the Rizal blvd and local market, they even have 711 just outside the hotel and a spa with massage with the blind. The reception is very helpful, they know the city very well. from the best restaurants down to the Roro/boat schedules.. The only downside are the towels, we are afraid to use the towels as they are not clean with weird smell.

I find Golden Gate Suites to be a good value. NO bells or whistles like a pool but the aircon works and the water is hot (pressure is awful). But, NO free breakfast. It is well situated for my purposes and within walking distance of all the places I need to visit. I will recommend it to others who are budget minded and desire a clean safe place to rest while visiting Dumaguete.

Great place to stay when in Dumaguete”

We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights and it was a great experience. The staff were very accommodating. The location is equally great as it is just a walking distance from the tourist spots in Dumaguete. It just needs a little improvement with the toiletries provided to the guests. But all in all, our stay here is just perfect.
