          Good but not impressive”

          Check in and check out process is very inefficient. we waited for 45mins because they are still cleaning the room. We arrived 2PM (checkin time) but we were able to checkin at 2:45PM. If you want to cook during your stay, you have to pay 150.00php for the LPG. The place is huge, comfortable, and clean.

          Nice, quiet, spacious hotel for a group of adult couples or families sans young children or couples.”

          Its a +40 room boutique hotel in northern Cebu, next to Banilad. Location is in a quieter part of a commercial area. Rooms are spacious and well planned out. Recent renovational work has been done. Its located next to Montibello hotel and behind Gaisano Country Mall complex. Taxis are plentiful except rush hour and friday/saturday evenings. Its a 3 minute walk to main road and restaurants/massage/shopping mall. Hotel is a good option for travellers who cook themselves and do not expect on-premise dining / entertainment / pool facilities. Higher floor comfy 2-3 bedroom Suites with balconies are preferred. Smaller 1 bedroom suites with balcony available as well. As in most Philippine hotels, a well managed staff are key to a pleasant stay. Overall, Sta. Barbara has a wonderful and attentive staff 24/7.

          Great place to stay in”

          Worth your time and money, especially if you're in a group of five or more persons and you're looking for a large, homey, comfortable and private space. Staff is friendly and courteous. However, we had an issue with the air conditioning unit in our family suite. I'd give the suite number if I could remember it. First off, the living area was WAY TOO BIG for an aircon that looked like it had less than 1 HP. Called Reception and complained. They came up and checked the unit FOUR times and still NO RESULT -- the living room remained warm during our entire stay. After their 4th visit to the room, I just got so frustrated and told them to just give us two electric fans to help keep the place cool. We had also booked the corner suite right beside this room and the aircon worked perfectly. No issues there. But somehow, the staff just wouldn't admit that their aircon unit was ridiculously small for the room size. Obvious fact I would think.

          A Lovely Apartment”

          We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would have liked to extend. The apartment was a good size and has a nice kitchen too. A nice touch was that they provided toothbrush and paste as well as the usual shampoo and soap. It was clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The value was fantastic. Only improvements we would recommend are to provide more cooking utensils and more available cooking rings on the oven as to cook more than one we would have had to pay 150p for them to bring gas canister to connect to the oven gas hobs.

          Country Mall in front, everything you ever need for a stay: refrigerator, oven. Every room have its toilet, cable tv with Disney channel etc to keep children occupied. Laundry at reasonable rate should you ever need it. But need at least 1 day. With 3 bedrooms and double bed, you can even sleep 1 on the sofa in the living room which have aircon too! Cost til I don't feel like going out at all. Only con is the aircon in the room is window type, u have to make it fixed blowing towards the room, if not not so cooling.

          Not so great”

          The 1 BR suite is actually just like a studio room with a sofa and a kitchen in the dark hallway. One would expect a living room. The photos seem purposely misleading. I preferred the studio room, not because of it’s lower price, but of its better floor plan an usability over the 1BR. Best look at the rooms before you book if you have a chance. Walk-in rates are higher than online booking - I never understand why ...

          Disappointing”

          I upgraded from a nice studio room to a 1 BR. It was a total disappointment. I preferred to stay in my cheaper (smaller) studio room (no refund) over the 1 BR apartment. It actually is not a real 1 BR apartment, just a same sized bedroom with a kitchen and a table in a hall way (walk through). The extra room (kitchen with dining) is totally dark (no window). The bedroom only has a tiny make-up desk, but no chance for a proper desk/table. It might be good for people what do big-time cooking (I prefer going out). The 1BR was a total disappointment for me, rather a downgrade then worth more than the studio.
