When we got back to Cebu City, we were looking for place to stay within the city proper that is of near proximity to the malls, and establishments. We were also looking for a place that is within our budget range. Good thing The Maxwell Hotel Cebu fits right in what we needed, and wanted. The Maxwell Hotel Cebu is a business and budget hotel in one. It is ideal for business trips, or leisure travelers with its strategic location near business, and shopping centers. They also arrange car rental, and travels for North and South Cebu if you plan to take day trips anywhere near or within Cebu after your business arrangements.
Best place to stay when in Cebu City
We were already on the last leg of our Cebu adventure trip, and we did not want to spend too much but we also preferred a nice place to stay within the busiest part of the city for food, and business center accessibility. If you’ve looked for accommodations in Cebu City, you will find that there are a lot of choices to choose from. The reason why we went for The Maxwell Hotel Cebu was the location – facing one of the busiest, and developed streets in the city, finding and getting a cab/taxi was not a problem. If you want to commute, the local Filipino mode of transport, jeepneys are also available. We knew that we were at the right spot. Located at Escario St. near the Capitol, it was a few minutes away from Ayala Mall, with food establishments, coffee shops, pharmacy, 24H shops within walking distance.
Clean, simple, and affordable
The room is spacious compared to your usual budget hotels, and accommodations. I’m particular to leg room, and you would not expect a budget hotel to be as spacious as having an extra bed and still be able walk around the room comfortably. And even when the hotel is located in front of one of the busiest streets in Cebu, the traffic noise does not reach the room where we stayed.
One of the requirements I have when looking for accommodation is fast internet connection when I’m traveling and working on the road. The first thing that I do is usually test it out first thing so I would know if I needed to find a coffee shop to work at the next day. Good thing that The Maxwell Hotel Cebu has fast internet connection for me to do my daily online video meeting for work. The meeting would usually last for an hour, and it enabled me to do my work, and meeting without internet connection disruption.
Great value for money plus more
They have complimentary breakfast of generous serving that you can take at the breakfast lounge or inside your room. You will also find the only 24H Cebu’s Original Lechon Belly branch at the ground floor – a must try when you’re in Cebu as well. There is also a laundry shop where you can also have your clothes washed should you need to, or have the hotel do it. (Discounted rates
Minor requests met
We requested an additional seat for us. The table was large and wide enough to accommodate 3-4 people but there is only one chair, so we had to request additional seat. There is also no water heater in the room for late night coffee, and I’m not sure if you can request a water heater, but you can request hot water to be sent to the room.
I definitely recommend it as top places to stay when in Cebu City. You can call ahead for reservation, or book online on their website. If you’re looking for cheaper rates, you might light to check out The Maxwell Hotel Cebu on Agoda for some discounted rates.
