Lobby is clean and decorated. Café in lobby. Room is old. Linens clean yet quality is less than expected. Amenities none. Tiny soap wrapped in plastic. Shampoo pack. Oh gosh. Basic hotel room. May not meet international travelers expectations.

First time in Dumaguete & the staff & service here was phenomenal. I came in with my big family (about 9 of us) & everyone was very helpful. Huge shoutout to the bell hop/van driver guy who gave us tips & pointers around the city. Jade My husband/I, along with my parents, will be coming back here again.
