      Affordable Hotel Price”

      The hotel was good, to be honest. But the downside of it was, during our stay, there was an ongoing renovation/maintenance of the building. The smell of the rugby (?) kind of absorbed by the air-conditioning unit and the smell entered our room.

      Excellent location! Walking distance to Dumaguete port, Siliman University, Ceres Bus Stop, Rizal Blvd. There are convenience stores, spa, drug stores and fast food in front, beside and across the hotel. 1 tricycle ride away to Ceres Bus Terminal. Friendly staff and clean rooms.

      Pro: walking distance from the Rizal boulevard and Siliman U. There's a 7-11 store just in front of the hotel and Jo's Chicken Inato restaurant is just in the next building. you can also find a lot of restaurants near the hotel. Wifi is fast and the room is OK. Cons: toilet need to clean further as it has a stinking smell.

      The staff are geniunely kind and very accomodating. You don't find hard time to request for early check in, especially guests like us who came from distant place. The rooms, lobby, facade and others areas are well kept and very clean. The decors are elegant and everything offers a homy environment.

      Staying here again”

      Best location, right on Silliman Ave, just a few steps to the Silliman Portals, the City's icon. We walked everywhere, to restos, Lee Plaza, to Luce Auditorium to watch MButterfly. The only times we rode tricycles were to go to Hayahay and to the bus terminal. There's a Korean resto right next door and Jo's Inato on the other side. There's even a Scooby's past the intersection for breakfast and snack options. Even though the hotel didn't have breakfast options, its location more than made up for it. Our room on the 3rd floor was clean,comfortable and we didn't have any trouble with the bathroom or noise from outside. Definitely staying here on our next visit!

      Great location.”

      Great location, staff were friendly and room was small but good value. Room was described as city view but was in fact was looking at rear of other properties, were people could see into room due to floor height window, so no privacy unless blind was used. No WiFi first day and very poor after. We would stay again as good value.

      I recommend this place for its location.”

      We like U Pension for its accessibility. It is located just beside Jo's Chicken Inatô which is also near a lot of tourist spots in Dumaguete (SU, SU Church, SU Anthropology Museum, Rizal Boulevard, Port, and a lot of dining establishments). Commute is a breeze as well since it's at a corner of main roads. Cons: We stayed in a Matrimonial Room and the airconditioning in that corner room is so poor because the a/c is facing towards the door and not the bed. Management should also need to do something about the cleanliness of the cabinets AND the BATHROOM. The faucets and shower are grimy. Other than that, it is a perfect stay.

      An overall great place to stay in Dumaguete! Comfortable beds, clean, has hot water, good wifi (Even in rooms), and a great location! You're literally in the heart of Dumaguete! Near Poppy's cafe, the boulevard and all the other restaurants. Very good value for money most of all, will stay here again and I recommend it!

      Quiet room, ideal when you arrive by ferry boat, but no view”

      This hotel is at an excellent location: just a five minutes’ walk away from the ferry port, you don’t need a taxi, you just can walk around the corner. Near to many good restaurants, shops and malls. It is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and quiet, but I had absolutely now view, not to the street, not to the near beach. When you don’t mind: go there and enjoy. You will like it. Note: when you travel on by bus from the Ceres Liner bus station: the fee for a tricycle ride inside Dumaguete is 8 Pesos, with a bit bag maybe the double. They asked me 300 Pesos! At the end I pay 20 Pesos, I am a friendly person.

      I expected less but experience was amazing. Location made it easy for us to walk around and get to reach some of Dumaguete's best - Jo's Inato, Silliman University, the Boulevard, coffee shops nearby.

      Clean, good location, friendly staff

      I stayed at U Pension for 4 nights and came back another time for two nights. It's located near the Boulevard, so everything is in walking distance. And if you don't want to walk a few minutes a tricycle costs only a few Pesos. It's easy to catch one, because the Siliman University and the Boulevard are near and there passes a lot tricycles. The staff was friendly and did their best to help me with my questions about ferry schedules and places I wanted to visit. The rooms are very clean and although the U-Pension is located near the Boulevard it was quite inside the rooms. They don't have a restaurant, but it's no problem to get some food outside. There are a lot places to eat. Perhaps you can find a similar place to stay for a little bit less money, but overall I was very happy with my stay at U-Pension :)

Famous Bo's kitchen is just rigt bedide pension house and there are a lot of cafe's and bars along Rizal Avenue which is just walking distance from the hotel. The Public Market and Dumaguete Cathedral and Belfry is 5 blocks away which is a 20 minute walk. Everything is walking distancethat's why I chose this hotel.

      This hotel is located conveniently near shops and restaurants. A stone throw away from the famous boulevard. rooms are spacious, but not meticulously clean. Bathroom tiles are stained and the roman shades covering the windows are dirty. Sheets and pillows are just right for the price paid. It's the location that makes me come back to this pension inn.
