Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu Reviews
Great hotel but maybe not the best location Jul 27, 2014
We only stayed for 1 night at the hotel in July 2014 and it is tricky to give a good review based on this but I’ll do my best.
The entrance to the hotel is impressive and this is your typical 5 star huge hotel that you see in many cities across Asia. In front of the hotel there is a large fountain and the lobby is enormous. Check in was fast and there was even a hotel employee that greeted us when we came to the lifts and she pressed the button for us to indicate that we wanted to take the lift up.
The room was modern and stylish. The walls were greyish and the same goes for the carpet. The center piece in the room was the HUGE kingsize bed but the was also a chair, a large desk and office chair for working, a flat screen TV and free wife that worked pretty good compared to some of the other places that we had been to. Apart from this there was a alarm clock/ docking station for the iPhone (with the old plug), a small safe, fridge with various drinks and a wardrobe with quite a few hangers.
I was not crazy about the bathroom as it was pretty dark – some of the tiles that were used were completely black and it just made the bathroom to dark in my opinion. But there was a great shower corner, various standard amenities and also a couple of bottle of complimentary water.
The breakfast was outstanding and similar to what you find at large high end hotels. There was a vast selection of bread, pastry, cereal, hot food, sushi, fruit, ice cream etc. I think most people were able to find something to eat at this breakfast buffet
I did not get a chance to check out the pool or gym – but we had a view to the pool and it looked great.
The location of the hotel is OK. It is right next to SM City Cebu mall – one of the largest malls in the Philippines. But apart from that the area around the hotel seemed to be pretty industrial and you have to take a taxi to get to the historic center around Fort San Pedro.
Conclusion: not the best location maybe but the hotel seems to be a good 5 star hotel and the room was great and the service was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends and family.
