Efficient, friendly service and great location”

location and staff

I was pleasantly delighted to find a spacious room for such a good price. And not only that, we were allowed early check-in and afforded airport pick-up at no extra cost. The staff were polite, friendly, accommodating and efficient. Though no restaurant service is available during early mornings, popular Filipino fast-foods (Chowking and Jolibee) were only a few steps away. As well, an ATM machine (BPI) is also a few steps away. I would definitely recommend Hotel Nicanor to friends who will be travelling to Dumaguete. And I would definitely stay there again if I get a chance to make another visit.

Great location and a value for money hotel”

Great location, affordable price, clean room, corteous staff

I booked the suite room for only p1200.00 through Agoda. The room is big, clean and have an ocienview of Dumaguete. The hotel is located near the port, walking distance to Siliman University, sunset boulevard, the famous Sans Rival of Dumaguete and other nearby restaurants and coffee shop. The hotel is also near a department store and supermarket where you can buy some stuffs and "pasalubong" I will definitely stay in this hotel again and will recommend this to my friends and family.

Holiday in the heart of Dumaguete City”

Central location, good shower water pressure, comfortable beds

This is our third time staying at Hotel Nicanor, and the first time that we have actually managed to book a room with a window. The family room is very large with two comfortable big beds, and nice windows across the out-facing wall. Location is excellent, in the heart of Dumaguete City with international restaurants nearby and the famous Sans Rival pastry shop less than 5 minutes walk away. WIFI signal was poor in the room but once connected was fairly fast.

Hotel is right at the center of hustle.and bustle with everything you need bank, atm, resto, mall , shops are closeby. Booked this hotel since I came from siquijor and just wanted a hotel within walking distance from the dumaguete port. Cons: hotel and facilities look really outdated, lights in my room is too dim for me but Staff is friendly and accommodating.

Big clean room, friendly helpful staffs”

wonderful 5days at hotel nicanor. location is in the heart of the town! cafes, local eatery, restaurants and a short 3 mins walk to the sea. staffs were friendly, honest n helpful on directions and places to go. althou its away from the the south bound bus terminal but a short 7pesos tricycle ride solved the prob. north bound buses are at the main rd beside the sea. tricycle and habal (motorcycles) work 24hrs so if you need to go off in the wee hrs, you have to negotiate a price with them. always ask the hotel on the prices first to avoid being overcharged by the drivers. the room is big, clean, strong ac and good hot water pressue shower. flat screen tv with plenty of channels. note that there is no shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, kettle and fridge in the room. there are 2 hangers in the room but you can request more. room was tidy up everyday. complimentary bar soap and a packet of coffee provided daily. thin bedsheet like blanket provide but you can request for thicker ones.

Nice Hotel in a good location.”

Location in town, close to airport and to the Robinson's mall, views to the sea.

The stay was nice, overall the staff were very friendly (only 1 person was questionable). The small refrigerator worked great as well as the freezer within. The room has floor to ceiling windows along one wall which was very nice to view the area. Banks, atm's, food, and pharmacy services are all around within easy walking distance. Fresh drinking water was located on each floor, easy to refill water bottles each day (as it gets very hot there in Dumaguete). The air conditioner in the room was fantastic, actually blows too cold so we had to turn it up just a bit. Hot water in the shower was hot enough and plentiful due to the in-shower mini electronic water heater. Overall very good, I would definitely return to this hotel.

The hotel is very convenient to go around”

spacious room, comfortable bed, friendly staff

We were happy staying in Hotel Nicanor because it is just walking distance to places we want to visit. It is close to the restaurants so place to eat is not a problem. It is near the department stores so convenient to buy anything you need. Grocery store is nearby that buying water anytime is easy. Going to the Boulevard where most tourists go at night is only a walk away. Going to the store to buy the famous sylvannas is just five minutes of walking. In short this hotel is centrally located in the city. I highly recommend it to anyone going there.

I stay at Nicanor because it's right at the center of the city. I just need to walk for me to do my business appointments. So convenient. The staff were all very pleasant as well. This is an old hotel so you don't expect much. Room and in-room amenities are old. Shampoo and stuff are charged upon use...they just provide towel and soap...like a motel or something. Anyways, I needed a room to sleep in and they provided it...i'm okay with that.

Lee Plaza is a left turn from the hotel and a one minute walk offering supermarket and department store with a money changer downstairs in front of the supermarket On the same corner is a pharmacy and two fast food restaurants with Mc Donalds right beside Chow King Turn right from the hotel you immediately see the waterfront with numerous restuarants and cafes Walking ten meters to the first corner there is a restuarant on the left but our favourite eatery is ten meters to the right called Chapters cafe. Great food and drinks at a nice price,helpful staff and the best coffee i had in Dumaguete. On the waterfront a left turn will take you to Casa Blanca catering for local and foreign tastes

close to shopping centre. short walk to the boulevard with more restaurants, easy to get a motor cab

Overall a very pleasant one. I love the suite room with wide/tall corner windows and high ceilings. Great view of the ocean and port area. Bed is king size and comfortable. Lounge area. Bathroom somewhat disproportionate to room size. I have stayed at the lower floor before but it was tight. Should i come bAck to dumaguete i would request for room 503. Also it can get noisy on nights when bands play in nearby establishments. Closing the curtains helped.

Salute to the staff and the front desk officers! You guys were doing a great job. Now, make your beds comfortable by providing the correct blanket, and not the sheer, diaphanous bed sheet. One does not want to freeze to death at dawn when Dumaguete cools off eventually.
