              great location small rooms”

              location, low rate, acceptable ambiance

              i stayed for 5 days 4nights at the hotel. the staff in the reception is accommodating and helpful. the kitchen staff however should smile more and be friendly. no room service has been made throughout my stay in the hotel. the hotel has a good location and cheaper compared to other. i recommend this hotel for people who has a business trip in cebu city, but not if you want to enjoy the beautiful scenery of cebu.

              All the staffs are really accommodating. We'll definitely book here again once we return to Cebu :) We also liked the smell of their lobby.

              Affordable, Comfortable Beds, Great location”

              I booked this hotel with my family of 5 and was quite disappointed that the lady gave us the top floor room with bunk beds. Check in was also very slow. Good thing service was great after that and beds are super comfortable to sleep. Breakfast was good at a very cheap price. They also have an on-call massage therapist at a reasonable price. I would still highly recommend this hotel, especially for groups on a tight budget.

              Good value and clean, staff very helpful and friendly, but require better training for example: providing a fish knife for spreading butter on toast is not what I expect from hotel staff. :) The hotel can be noisy at night, so take pair of ear plugs of you are noise sensitive. Otherwise enjoy the hotel, the staff and its location, easy to get to malls, to Fuente Circle etc.

              Not recommended”

              Location is the only thing in this hotel's favour.

              Ants in the bathroom, cockroaches everywhere, a large rat I nearly killed in the corridor, cigarette ends everywhere to be seen in the upper levels. Wifi is available but the router needed to be reset several times during my stay. Hot water not available in all rooms... I had to upgrade in order to have hot water. The hotel generally functional and with pleasant staff who do all they can to make your stay enjoyable, but the hotel really needs to be properly cleaned. If I had not paid in full before arrival I would have checked out immediately and looked for another hotel. I will never stay in Verbena Pension House again.

              That was worst! Me and my family booked a Suite Room and they gave a deluxe room and yes! Ask for additional bed then wow! They also ask additional pay. Our supposedly room was 1queen size and a single bed because it is SUITE ROOM and we welcome with 1 queen size bed! Hope they know what the guest really book for.

              The location is very good, the price is reasonable a good place to sleep for the night. However, they need to provide safety measures especially the CR to avoid accident because it's slippery. They should provide non-slip slippers or rubberized map. The pressure of the water in their shower is very slow. That's only my opinion otherwise the staff and the place is okay.

              The lady at the front desk and the guard was very nice and accomodating to answer our questions. The room is pretty small for 5 people, I think it can only fit 4 (including extra person/bed). It was difficult for us to move around altogether. The bathroom was okay. I'm not sure if there were bedbugs (surot) in our beds, cause after our night stay everyone from our group got itchy bite marks all over our body, or it can also be because of the Whale shark watching activity we did the previous day. Also, I saw baby cockroach while having breakfast. The location was nice.
