Value for Money”

I didn’t expect much from this hotel as it was cheap. But it did exceed my expectations. The room was clean, and the room is big enough for us 3. The cable TV worked really well. The bed is comfy, pillows were soft (but we only got 2) and sheets were changed everyday. The wifi is fast too. They also have hot and cold water dispenser in every floor so bring your tumblers with you. All my requests were attended to immediately. The place is just a 2 min walk from the infamous Sans Rival. The staff were courteous and polite. I would definitely book this hotel again!

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.

Love the Howyang cuisine (next to Robinson's), Scooby's (in front of the hotel), the famous Sansrival (end of the street) and BPI bank next to the hotel. Also, there's a reasonably priced spa on the same street. It's 15-18 mins walk away to the pier going to Siquijor and Dapitan. The room is clean and organized. AC, TV and hot water are working well except for the wifi. The staffs are nice esp the security guard. Will definitely go back to this place.

Very good stopover accommodation right in the center ”

I only stayed one night and I feel this is perfect value for money right in the center of Duma. My room was big and clean, shower worked a treat. Downsides for me the air condition very noisy at night to sleep and my room window was booked off so no naturel light but it was spacious so it did not bother me for one night. Staff was nice enough. They have no restaurant for breakfast but plenty of places to go walking distance from the hotel. All in all, a useful stopover place at very good value. One last thing, Agoda is not indicating the hotel on the right spot on their map, they need to change this as it took me half an hour to find walking around town with my bags.

Located at the heart of the city”

Hotel Nicanor is very accessible to key establishments and food hubs in Dumaguete City - only a stone's throw to the Dumaguete Boulevard, San Rival Cakes and Pastries, Silliman University, and if you can walk farther, you can reach the Cathedral and the Belfry next to it. The room is spacious and can accommodate 6 persons at most and is good for sleepovers; however, if you are looking for a hotel with various amenities, better book with hotels outside of the city proper.

Hotel is loacated at the city center. Just a block away from Rizal Boulevard. Many restaurants in the area. A block away from the famous Sans Rival. Walking distance to Siliman University and the Cathedral. They allow late check-out up to 1pm and you can leave your bags at the reception while you roam around. Rooms cleaning is daily and they change towels everyday. Major minus points for the hotel is that my bed has bed bugs. I did have bug bites after dtaying with them. 😠

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.
