Luxury without Breaking Your Wallet
I was surprised at how cheap city hotels are in Cebu given their star ratings. Perhaps because of heavy competition? This is a complete contrast in the not-so-good accommodations in Moalboal or Kawasan Falls which offer same rates, sometimes even more expensive. Harold's Hotel is one good example. I can't believe you can book a place this good for as low as 2,200php on a weekend via booking.com . That's a deal!
I love snooping at hotel websites and Harold's Hotel got me all pumped up to go back to Cebu for the nth time. Harold's Cebu exudes luxury, freshness and comfort. If I am to compare it to a furniture it would be a high-end, new sofa. A true businessman's hotel.
So we were so drunk the night before after checking a cheap pub in Colon Street and then transfered to a more high-end place in Mango Avenue. Alcology? If I remember it right. The place is crazy and we were so into the party that I went beyond my alcohol limit. Got back at the hotel 4:00 am. We were supposed to check out 9:00 am to leave for Moalboal but that's the only time we woke up.
Though they don't have a pool, Highlands Lounge at the roof deck could easily compensate for it. Not only that you get a great view of the city from here, Highlands is an intimate place where you want to be seen. I love the dim lights at night. It really gives the place a special appeal. It has class and therefore attracts the crowd suited for the place. You have the option to dine outdoor and indoor. Outdoor if you want to chill and indoor if you want it a bit more private and intimate. The outdoor section I love because of the relaxed vibe and the indoor for its sophistication.
And they have a gym and a convention center too. Too bad we were not able to use the gym as we had to leave for Moalboal the earliest the next day.
Hotel Style: #2 Spa Hotel in Cebu City
Harolds Hotel Cebu punches above its weight. Satisfied costumers are the proof. I regret that our schedule in this particular Cebu trip was very tight that we didn't get to fully maximize our check-in and checkout allowance with the Hotel. Despite the short stay, this place for me is indeed Luxury Without Breaking Your Wallet.
HAROLD'S HOTEL is located at
