Sampaguita Suites JRG
Ranked #45 of 91 Hotels in Cebu City
Reviewed 7 August 2011

The room price at 1200p is a bargain price if your e not expecting Luxury.
Its a basic, smalll room, with A/C, Pay TV, and small ensuite shower & toilet.

Positives;
"Chan" is why we will always go back to Sampaguita, and recommend this hotel. He is quite possibly the best porter, in CEBU!
Unlike his counterparts, this young lad RAN, when asked for a Taxi or towels, and made you feel like a priority!
Huuge congrats to him...
good filipino breakfast, i recomend the local milkfish, pronounced ""BANG-UUUS"", for allll the foreigners...hehheeee
one of the biggest tourist attractions in Cebu, The oldest church in the Philippines, ""Santo Nino"" is 50metres away.
There are 2 smalllll Supermarkets, close by.




Negatives;
beds are very hard, as they are only foam mattresses
Air con filters neeed cleaning, AT ALLL CEBU HOTELS...its easy to open and put in the shower to wash off the dust.......or like what i do, buy some "toilet cleaner" and wash it properly, whilst having a shower.
Dont rely on house cleaning, in ANY of the cebu hotels to do it, as they will only "wipe" the dust off....

Begging children are always outside this hotel, and heartbreakingly, must be ignored, unless you want a RIOT !!!!!!
if you give one child a lollie, alll of them, 10 or 20, run over to you...surrounding and swarming you, while the Lazy guard will just laugh...

if you want to give charity without being overwhelmed, go out at 4am, and put some real foood( 2min noodles , rice or uht milk) beside them as they sleeeep, outside the hotel........this is what we did.

Room Tip: Air con filters neeed cleaning, AT ALLL CEBU HOTELS...its easy to open and put in the shower to wash...

Stayed here for two nights in two different rooms. 1st night in a double room and 2nd night in the triple room.

Great location. But the rooms look ill-maintained. The bed linens were not that clean-looking. The bathrooms could be cleaner. The rooms are also quite small. The wifi they advertise is soooo not true! There's a signal but I think they don't actually have an internet connection just a wireless router that gives out a "signal."

There are better choices in Cebu with newer rooms and about the same price of Sampaguita Suites JRG. You could also try the newer branch of Sampaguita near the Sto. Nino church.

Yes it is a low priced hotel. But for the money i don't think you can beat it. If something isn't right they will try to make it right. and they are a great bunch of people there. I will stay there on my next trip. I have spent time there twice now. It is very convenient to most of what your need.

Sampaguita Suites is recommended by my officemate cause they stayed there last year. Since my friends and I are in a low budget, we decided to book here for a 2-night stay. Not bad for a Php 1198 per night rate (good for 3 persons already) plus Php 500 deposit (this is just in case you ordered something from their cafeteria or need to pay for something you consumed during your stay) but refundable when you check-out. With a free airport pick-up (which is a bonus point for the hotel). Clean rooms. No breakfast included (don't expect much cause you only get what you paid for). Anyway, no food inclusion is not a problem. The hotel is located near a supermarket. They also have cafeteria on their 2nd floor and a cafeteria near the hotel entrance. Also, one of the good things about this hotel is that it is very accessible. You can just walk when you want to go to Magellan's Cross, Basilica de Sto.Nino, Cebu Cathedral, Fort San Pedro and Plaza Independencia. One ride to Carbon Market.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for those travelers who want to go to Cebu City with a low budget but would still enjoy the trip.
