“Good value accommodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

I recently stayed at Palazzo Pensionne for two nights and found the overall experience very good. My room was away from the street so enjoyed a complete absence of barking dogs or early morning crowing of fowl and banging doors to disturb my slumber. As I am a light sleeper the black-out curtains were also appreciated.
I am a fussy eater and found the free breakfast acceptable. The staff were very helpful, the service good, and the cleanliness of the hotel was commendable. This hotel seems to be popular with foreigners also. The locality is quite central to the malls, reception staff will call a taxi/cab to the door with minimal waiting.
On my next visit to Cebu city I will check-in here again.

April 2012 - Small hotel in the style of a european pensione. It has a real family feel to it. The rooms are large and quiet. Many of the guests staying there were filipino families. The restaurant made family meals for these guests in the restaurant. It hotel felt like home. If you don’t find it too hot, it is a 15 minute walk to Mango Ave. Taxi’s are not a problem. 60 pesos to Robinson’s mall, 70 pesos to Ayala Mall, and 90 pesos to SM mall. Staff, of course, are helpful and make every attempt to meet your needs. The breakfast was not exceptional but adequete and cooked to order. WiFi was free and worked. Would stay here again.

We stayed here twice between a trip to and from Malapascua. Everything was fine - decent sized room, comfortable beds, free wi-fi, free breakfast. There are slightly cheaper places in the area, but this served our purpose fine, and we liked it so much we re-booked on the return trip.

We used Cebu City as a 'base' whilst daytripping to other areas of Cebu (Moalboal and Bohol), and so decided to go budget on accommodation. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we booked three nights at the Palazzo Pensionne, however decided after the first night that it was not what we were looking for and booked into a different hotel for the final night. (We would have left earlier, but arrived quite late from our daytrip and thought it would be too late to rebook and move) Although the rooms are clean, they are quite run down, and the room we stayed in was more like a private room in a backpackers hostel than a hotel. The bathroom and toilet were pretty shabby. The staff were friendly, but breakfast was limited in choice and pretty average. The pension house is in a residential area, which meant some taxi drivers had difficulty finding it. We always got there in the end though - coming from the airport, the driver phoned a friend, who only knew the area it was in, and then pulled over to ask another taxi where to go once we were in the area. The area around the pension house doesn't feel very safe, and we ended up catching taxis rather than walking. Overall it was ok, but I wouldn't stay there again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

I have been there just recently. We stayed for two days and came back for another day after our island trip in North of Cebu.

We came back because we are satisfied of our stay. It is true the general appearance of the Pensionne is not inviting. But we were there because of the review. It is true service and the rooms are well kept. In that time when we were there, the renovation and construction of the new building was ongoing. Yet the rooms are impressive. nice furniture and very nice interior. Comfort room is very clean too. Staff are very casually accommodating and friendly.

I am recommending this to budget conscious travelers. Good B&B. Breakfast is just enough.

This is Hotel is not easy to find but most taxi cab drivers knew this place. At about less than 100 meters, you can take a taxi from there.

Room Tip: If one prefers hot and cold shower do not choose standard or studio. but other room choice have. Ro...
