          Great location and Safe”

          I choose Elicon House because it was near in Colon. The room is clean and spacious. We were only two but we were upgraded to a good for 3 room. I felt safe there because of their safety rules and I super understand that and also their wifi internet is fast. It was around 20+ mbps when I checked it. No questions asked. The aircon is functioning also. Snacks are already allowed in the room . Hot water is free, just approach the front desk and also free regular water, it is located in your respected floor. There are many small restaurants nearby so don't worry where to find food. Take note also, there shower has no hot water. Please be reminded. Overall, I like it. We will come again in the future. Recommended.

          Enjoying the Cebu city”

          For traveling around the old city center in Cebu city, Elicon House has an excellant location. It is accross street from the well known San Carlos University main campus, and about 10-15 munutes walk to the the city's oldest street, Colon Street. Plenty of eatting places around the hotel. The room is good sized, but the facility is obviously quite old. The room and the building is clean. The staff were very nice and quite helpful. 24 hour staffed front desk added to the security. It is safe. However, inside the room, particularly inside the bathroom (CR), it was not well maintained, although clean. Tap water worked but water pressure was kind of low. A much better situation than the experience at the Cebu Guesthouse at Fuente. My 6 day stay there was met with a 4 days without tap water supply, which was horrible. Overall, it is a good value, and particularly good choice for people want to explore the city center area.

          Value for money as always.”

          Been here many times before, maybe more than times because of the value for money. Everything is always great but one thing I don't understand is that they do not reply to your text messages. Well, when they reply, only after a few hours, or, nothing at all. They answer when called though. Other than that, still great.

          Twas a great stay, the only problem was the aircon, so noisy and sometimes it doesn’t cool if used for too long.

          Elicon house is an ecofriendly hotel. They have trash for the empty plastic bottle. It’s just You can’t bring foods to your room because they avoid ants and other insects. The tripple sharing room we occupied was spacious. 👍🏻

          Staff was very helpful and accommodating. When the air conditioner was too noisy in one room, they were able to give me a different room with aircon that worked properly. Bed very comfortable, drinking water provided free of charge, soap and very old towel provided. Bathroom clean.
