                dirty”

                This hotel was seriously dirty. Ants in the room upon arrival, cockroaches made some appearances. Lighting was dodgy and so was the air-con. The bathroom was also gross and the floor was constantly wet with water and dirt due to inadequate drainage. However it was the cheapest available at last minute (and over new years eve) so it was exactly how I expected it would be. And it didn't really bother me. If you don't mind rooms that are like a prison with dirt everywhere then C'est La Vie Pension is your guy.

                The best place to stay”

                Location arrangement kindness

                Just infront of Alona beach. We are a group of 8. Family room has 8 beds, so the best place to stay with friends. Also, the staff were so kind. We enjoyed island hopping after checking out, but they allowed us to leave our luggage in the room and let us use the shower. This is the best place to stay. Wifi worked without any problems. Cold shower, but no problems.

                there was no hot & cold shower and the place look old but still is comfortable enough except for a protruded head of a nail on the side of the bed that pierced my legging...good thing it didn't cut through the skin......their housekeeper didn't bother to put a table cloth nor wipe off the dirt on the table top on the side of the bed.... Room & bathroom is spacious enough. Overall, it is a comfortable room.

                This budget pension is good for those travelling alone who are in tight budget. The location is good since it is near to the Redemptorist church and across it is a coffee shop also. Walking 5-10 minutes going highway, you will find alot of establishments and nearest Mall is Robinson. The interiors are totally Old and very old fashioned. It looks like the owner doesn't have the intension to renovate the hotel. Facilities are very bad and you can see cockroaches everywhere. Staffs are kind and hospitable but doesn't go beyond mile to help the customer. I think that's all I can say. If you need a nice place and with enough budget, go somewhere nice and clean. Peace!

                The location is really accessible to malls, coffee shop, church and transportation but at night guests can hear nearby bands playing loudly and there is NO INTERNET. The aircon and elevator is working fine and water is in good supply but the pail and water dipper provided is dirty and moldy. The blanket is already worn with holes in it. The building is very old and one can see lots of cobwebs by the hallway. The TV is not clear even though its cable, only the cartoons are clear. The receptionist is accommodating but the guard is lousy and keeps on playing games, does not even care if he is blocking the pathway.

                When I arrived at the hotel around midnight. It was horrible there were no lights it's like you're in a horror movie. The elevator was terrible I GOT STOCKED INSIDE for 15mins the lights were turning on and off no one even helped me. This experience was the worst of all. You should never do business with this so-called pension. Take this off of your site!

                Nothing interesting about this place. Felt a bit like a jail cell and wasn't exactly in great repair but the aircon worked, beds were soft and the location is excellent for nightlife. Having to leave an ID with the front desk was a bit concerning and strange but they accepted any ID so keep your passport.

                First thing, if you don't where it is, you might be having a hard time looking for it. No eye level signage. You have to look up for you to see the hotel's name. The elevator is always down, too bad for us our room is located at the 5th floor. Too old AC and TV. No remote control given No door knob on bathroom. Grumpy security guard. Not bad if you wll just sleep on it!

                Price, cheap. Location, good. Size of room, big.

                Blankets were super thin. No towels. We stayed in a triple room but we were given only 2 pcs complimentary soap because they ran out. Airconditioner is primitive. Walls paint coming off already. Its old and worn down but Its okay if you are not fussy and you just need a place to spend the night cheap and quick.
