          Cheaper Hotel”

          Staff very accommodating, accessible, cheaper hotel

          Went several times at this hotel and haven't encounter any problems. Staff are very accommodating. The hotel price is cheaper to its good service. Accessible for any transportation. Gaisano and Jollibee just a few walks. Near to Church and schools. Want to stay here everytime i went to Cebu as well as on my future trips.

          You get what you pay for”

          My partner and me stayed at The Ancestors during the busy Sinulog period. The room was clean and spacious, however, not soundproof. Inn the evening we could hear the telly from the neighbour's room as well as the street noise. We transferred to a family room the following day as friends were arriving. The suite was just next to reception. All of us were woken up at 6am the following morning by the staff in reception taking selfies with loud laughter and chit-chatting. Not even a single apology when I went out to make them aware of us sleeping next door.

          This is not a neighbourhood suited for travellers unless you want to get jacked. And that is according to locals. Armed security at every store including the bakery—let that sink in for a moment. The room was noisy, there was no view, etc.
